Summary "Deep within the world is a hidden flame--an inferno of hatred and vengeance that consumes everything it touches. In the aftermath of the war between the Suicide Squad and the Justice League, one of Amanda Waller's greatest foes has seized that flame, and now he's going to use it to burn down everything she holds dear--starting with her home base, the Belle Reve Penitentiary. The result is one of the Squad's greatest challenges yet: holding together as a unit while fighting to keep their fellow super-villains behind bars. When faced with the chance to escape Waller's control, however, one member of the team will seize the opportunity--and launch a bloody betrayal in the process. Can an enraged Harley Quinn track down the traitor--and take down the mastermind behind the mutiny--before Task Force X is terminally disbanded?"--

Summary In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, high principles clash bloodily with friendship, loyalty, and love. Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious divide sweeping across the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service, to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings precariously to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.

Summary Using the scaffolding of Isadora Duncan's life and the stuff of her spirit, Amelia Gray delivers an incredibly imaginative portrait of the artist. In 1913, the restless world sat on the brink of unimaginable suffering. But for one woman, the darkness of a new era had already made itself at home. Isadora Duncan would come to be known as the mother of modern dance, but in the spring of 1913 she was a grieving mother, after a freak accident in Paris resulted in the drowning death of her two young children. The accident cracked Isadora's life in two: on one side, the brilliant young talent who captivated audiences the world over; on the other, a heartbroken mother spinning dangerously on the edge of sanity.
