The darklings come at night carrying their plague of shadows to the nine worlds. They corrupt all they touch and there's no cure except burning in the sacred fires. And Abagail Bauer has been infected with their baneful magic. Now Abagail is deep in a forest ruled by darklings, miles from safety, and weeks from the only person who can teach her to control the polluted magic raging through her body. With danger around every corner and darklings attacking at every turn, will Abagail survive long enough to reach her aunt? Or will the plague finally take control of Abagail and destroy her?

Our striving eyes Pursue in vain the fleeting light ; Beyond the darkling hills it flies

BLIMEY! It's something all pirates are taught when they're very young, but too many forget: never get on the wrong side of a librarian. Especially if the librarian is a lemming! The bookish Sylvester Lemmington simply wants to hunt down the facts. Everyone else just seem more interested in hunting down Sylvester. Especially so, after he becomes the accidental owner of the most sought-after treasure map of all time. Now, Sylvester must deal with the humdrum of pirate life - voodoo magic, cannibals, lethal carnivores, mutinies and magical treasures. 'The Tides of Avarice is a Treasure Island meets Redwall romp and just too darn much fun to put down' -Foreword Reviews 'The book reminded me of Terry Pratchett and I couldn't help chuckling as I read' -Madhouse Family Reviews 'It is constantly inventive, full of edge-of-the-seat excitement and did I mention that it is also hilariously funny?' -John Grant, Hugo and World Fantasy Award Winning author

The Dog backed up, stunned, wavering . . . pointed its nose to the darkling sky
and howled to curdle the blood of the damned. Its mate launched itself at the

Kate Archer left home years ago, swearing that she would die before she returned to Maine. As plans go, it was a pretty good one ¾ simple and straightforward. Not quite fast enough, though. Before she can quite manage the dying part, Kate gets notice that her grandmother is missing, leaving the carousel that is the family business untended. And in Archers Beach, that means ‰way more trouble than just a foreclosure. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Advanced Praise for Carousel Tides: _Carousel Tides pulls you into the chill foggy reality of peeling-paint sand-grit coastal Maine outside of tourist season and then hands you something else ¾ the hidden world lurking in shadows or under the lands surface or just offshore, where Black Dogs hunt the night and selkies toss unpleasant truths over their shoulders before diving into the next wave. In the center of this, Kate Archer tends and guards one of the spookiest carousels this side of Ray Bradbury and wonders what has happened to her grandmother. The old woman sent her a letter, left papers deeding over the carousel and old house and the Land (meaning much more than property), and vanished, telling the spirits of the land and sea that she expected to be back before the turning of the year. _Now March has come and gone and Kate must return from self-exile to take up powers and responsibilities she has renounced, or dying will be the least of her problems... _Sharon Lee weaves fantasy into reality so deftly that you scarcely notice when you slip across the edge. And once youre there, the storys own magic wont let you turn back from the strong characters, deep mysteries, and even deeper danger.Ó ¾James A. Hetley, author of Dragons Eye, Dragons Teeth, and Dragons Bones * * * _Proof that contemporary fantasy is alive and well and living beyond the big city limits ¾ Carousel Tides is a worthy inheritor to Charles DeLints Newford series, and magical in its own right. Delightful.Ó ¾ Laura Anne Gilman, author of Hard Magic * * * _Sharon Lee is one of my all-time favorite authors, a gifted storyteller whose work never fails to enchant. With Carousel Tides she gives her fans another opportunity to spend time with fascinating characters, bringing them to life in a place that becomes so real you can smell the salt air around you. Her fine hand with detail never lets the suspense falter, as mystery, folklore, and magic are artfully interwoven into a thoroughly engaging tale. Carousel Tides will leave you eagerly awaiting the next novel by this master.Ó ¾Jan Burke, author of The Messenger, Bones, and Bloodlines * * * _Sharon Lees finely observed detail evokes magic in Maine and gives conviction to six alternate, richly-inhabited universes.Ó ¾ Rob Weisbrot, author of Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules, the Legendary Journeys: The Official Companion * * * _Carousel Tides is a gripping, enthralling read that I didnt want to put down for any reason. From its beautifully detailed small-town Maine setting to a cosmology that manages to be unique and familiar at the same time, this book demonstrates the best of what urban fantasy can be. Its rare that I find a book I can recommend without any reservations; Carousel Tides is one of those books.Ó ¾ Seanan McGuire, author of Rosemary and Rue, A Local Habitation, and An Artificial Night
