"Fans of Dan Simmons' THE TERROR will love ARARAT, the thrilling tale of an adventure that goes awry. When a newly engaged couple climbs Mount Ararat in Turkey, an avalanche forces them to seek shelter inside a massive cave uncovered by the snow fall. The cave is actually an ancient, buried ship that many quickly come to believe is really Noah's Ark. But when a team of scholars, archaeologists, and filmmakers make it inside the ark for the first time, they discover an elaborate coffin in its recesses ... and when they break it open, they find that the cadaver within is an ugly, misshapen thing ... and it has horns. A massive blizzard blows in, trapping them in that cave thousands of meters up the side of a remote mountain ... but they are not alone"--
Indigo : a mosaic novel by Charlaine Harris( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Investigative reporter Nora Hesper spends her nights cloaked in shadows. As Indigo, she's become an urban myth, a brutal vigilante who can forge darkness into weapons and travel across the city by slipping from one patch of shadow to another. Her primary focus both as Nora and as Indigo has become a murderous criminal cult called the Children of Phonos. Children are being murdered in New York, and Nora is determined to make it stop, even if that means Indigo must eliminate every member. But in the aftermath of a bloody battle, a dying cultist makes claims that cause Indigo to question her own origin and memories. Nora's parents were killed when she was nineteen years old. She took the life insurance money and went off to explore the world, leading to her becoming a student of meditation and strange magic in a mountaintop monastery in Nepal ... a history that many would realize sounds suspiciously like the origins of several comic book characters. As Nora starts to pick apart her memory, it begins to unravel. Her parents are dead, but the rest is a series of lies. Where did she get the power inside her? In a brilliant collaboration by New York Times and critically acclaimed coauthors Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Kelley Armstrong, Jonathan Maberry, Kat Richardson, Seanan McGuire, Tim Lebbon, Cherie Priest, James Moore, and Mark Morris join forces to bring you a crime-solving novel like you've never read before"--

" ... You got Slayer problems. You know what I find works real good with Slayers? Killing them." "Oh yeah, I did a couple Slayers in my time. Don't like to brag. Oh, who am I kidding, I love to brag. There was one Slayer, during the Boxer Rebellion ..." "We like to talk big, vampires do. 'I'm gonna destroy the world, ' -- just tough-guy talk, strutting around with your friends over a pint of blood ... Truth is, I like this world. You got dog racing, Manchester United, Love Boat, and you got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals with legs ..." In the second hardcover installment of the bestselling Buffy the Vampire Slayer₉ series, Christopher Golden, coauthor of The Watcher's Guide ("fans will suck this tome dry"--Entertainment Weekly) and Immortal ("Golden and Holder smartly expand upon the show's slangy lingo [and] display deep insight into the characters."--Entertainment Weekly), presents a unique supernatural tale that finds fan-favorite demon lovers Spike and Drusilla wreaking havoc throughout war-torn Europe as only they can. As long as there have been demons, there have been Slayers. But Slayers have short life expectancies and high mortality rates. Which is why there exists a list of Pretty Maids All in a Row It's 1940, and Europe is ravaged by World War II -- an ideal environment for two gleefully destructive monsters. Drusilla's birthday -- that is, the anniversary of her resurrection as a vampire -- impends and her devoted paramour Spike wants to celebrate in style. What more perfect a gift than the legendary necklace known as Freyja's Strand -- a chain of metal so potently magical that it instantly imbues its wearer with the ability to shape-shift at will? The problem is, no one's sure that the bauble even exists. Until Spike learns of a demon named Skrymir, who claims not only to possess the necklace, but is willing to trade. Skrymir's true desire is to be rid of the most persistent thorns in his side, the Watchers' Council and the Slayer, so that he can implement his vision of world domination. Spike's task is to infiltrate Council head-quarters and get his hands on the list of all young women currently in training to take over as Slayer should they be called. In exchange for the necklace, Spike must kill the current Slayer, a brazen young woman named Sophie, as well as all of the Slayers-in-Waiting that exist -- the "pretty maids all in a row." To Spike, this sounds like fun, and he sets off on a spree. Sophie and her Watcher, Yanna, are determined to stop whoever has been slaughtering all of the potential Slayers. If Spike and Drusilla succeed with their plans of bloodlust and power, it could mean the end of the Chosen One -- all of the Chosen Ones -- forever
