When Alek is forced to take a job from a local vampire hunting down a run-away thrall, he is immediately thrust into a world of blackmail and backstabbing, where the Rules are nothing more than an inconvenience to ancient, supernatural predators. For the first time, Alek has more to fear from his clients than from his debtors. But Alek is the best in the business. It’ll take more than a Vampire Lord to keep a good reaper down.

NOW A PRIME ORIGINAL TV SERIES Tiamat's Wrath is the eighth book in the New York Times bestselling and Hugo-award winning Expanse series. Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper. In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay. At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess. And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule - and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose - seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough . . . The Expanse is the biggest science fiction series of the last decade and is now a major TV series.

An omnibus edition of the final three Dread Empire novels (Reap the East Wind, An Ill Fate Marshalling, and A Path to Coldness of Heart) from a pioneer of gritty and realistic epic fantasy, Glen Cook. The Dread Empire spans a continent: from the highest peaks of the Dragon’s Teeth to the endless desert lands of Hammad al Nakir; from besieged Kavelin to mighty Shinsan . . . The time of the wrath of kings is close at hand. Bragi Ragnarson, now the king of Kavelin, has decided to join forces with Chatelain Mist, the exiled princess of Shinshan looking to usurp her throne. But in the deserts on the outskirts of the empire, a young victim of the Great Eastern Wars becomes the Deliverer of an eons-forgotten god, chosen to lead the legions of the dead. Wrath of Kings collects the final Dread Empire trilogy into a single volume. This epic narrative had been put on hold when the original manuscript to the final volume was stolen. Glen returned to the Dread Empire twenty years later, completely rewriting the concluding novel, A Path to Coldness of Heart. From the author of The Black Company comes an elaborate tale of nation-shattering conflict, maddening magic, strange creatures, and raw, flawed heroes, all shown through the filter of the author’s inimitable war-correspondent prose.

This monograph aims to present the reasons for going to war as proclaimed in the Assyrian royal inscriptions. The investigation is based on the presumption that we can distill from the professes "casus belli" the basic religious and moral ideas as well as the political ideology of Assyrian kingship and empire. In addition, this study tries to determine the literary conventions employed in presenting the causes for war. This monograph is only the first part of a comprehensive and comparative study on "causus belli" in the royal inscriptions from the Ancient Near East.
