This tale about family life, dragon-style, is escapist fun for adults.
Castellan the Black, now better known as Casta the Grey, has led an eventful life, but these days he’s content to live alone in his mountaintop lair, fending off occasional attacks from the food and waiting to die. At least, that’s what he tells himself.
Babysitting his young grandchildren is definitely not on his to do list. Sammy Jo doesn’t care that the world used to cower before Casta’s wrath. She doesn’t want barbecued knight in armour – it’s tinned food – and that’s that. Sadly, her little brother Billy Bob is more inclined to follow her lead than his grandfather’s, and what’s a grumpy old dragon to do with two such intransigent youngsters?
Things go from bad to worse when he wakes up from a nap to find they’ve been hunting for more appealing treats. Organic, free-range lunch was exactly what they needed, according to a very proud Sammy Jo. He’s never seen the food so upset, and now it’s coming up the hill, armed with spears and bows, hell bent on revenge.

In post-apocalyptic Maine, safety is the highest priority. Every citizen is Netted, their thoughts monitored for homicidal, lawless impulses. But being Netted can cause as many problems as it solves.
Years after everyone thought they'd died, a young family are discovered, safe and sound, living in the wilderness. As their delighted relations race to pick them up, Boyce is overwhelmed with relief that the daily battle to keep their small son, Hardy, safe has been lifted from his shoulders.
His wife, Kris, dreads returning to the settlement where she was born and raised. Her mental powers make living among others difficult, even dangerous, but even she is unprepared for the catastrophic events that follows.
Safety comes at a price.
The Node is power. Who controls the Node, controls the world.
At seventeen years old, Kyrillia knows it’s going to be a long time before she’s allowed to freely use the local Node, the knowledge interface which encompasses the planet. The Node is her mother’s realm, and she guards it fiercely. But when Kyrillia accesses a forbidden part of the system, she unwittingly sets in motion an unprecedented chain of events.
Falsely accused of murder, she has no choice but to run, along with an unlikely ally... and Vrox, Kyrillia’s imaginary friend. Mantivores are wild creatures, vicious child-snatchers, but they don’t live inside people’s heads, communicating telepathically. And they definitely don’t have anything to do with the Node, or the codes that everyone needs in order to control it...
For fans who enjoy Lois McMaster Bujold
