Annabeth e Percy sono precipitati in un baratro profondissimo, tanto da ritrovarsi nelle viscere del Tartaro. I semidei non hanno un istante da per­dere: Jason, Leo, Piper, Frank, Hazel e Nico dovranno trovare al più presto la Casa di Ade e sigillare le Porte della Morte, imprigionando le creature infernali che premono per oltrepassarle. Solo così potranno liberare i due eroi e impedire il ritorno di Gea, la dea della terra, che vuole distruggere il mondo con le sue armate di giganti. Senza trascurare un piccolo dettaglio: dovranno essere dalla parte giusta, quando le porte saranno chiuse, altrimenti non potranno più uscirne! La posta in gioco è più alta che mai in questa nuova avventura, in cui i semidei si misureranno con i mostri spaventosi che dimorano lungo le sponde ribollenti del Flegetonte e negli abissi infuocati del Tartaro.

Loki the trickster god is free from his chains. Now he's readying Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, armed with a host of giants and zombies, to sail against the Norse gods and begin the final battle of Ragnarok. It's up to Magnus Chase and his friends to stop Loki's plans, but to do so they will have to sail across the oceans of Midgard, Jotunheim and Niflheim in a desperate race to reach Naglfarbefore it's ready to sail on Midsummer's Day. Along the way, they will face angry sea gods, hostile giants, and an evil fire-breathing dragon who happens to be a former acquaintance. But Magnus's biggest challenge will be facing his own inner demons. To defeat Loki, Magnus will need to use words, not force. This will require finding a magical elixir so deadly that it will either make Magnus Chase powerful enough to out-talk the silver-tongued Loki, or destroy Magnus utterly.

Easton Crawford put his modeling career and good looks before his marriage until it was over. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needed him to be. He's not looking for a new mom for his daughter-just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend, Avery, convinces him that a good way to meet a lot of single women is to go on a single's cruise, Easton finds more than just a hook-up when he meets a fellow cruiser, Brooke. Brooke Bradley has taken care of her younger sister, Bailee, for most of their lives. While their mother was enjoying not being a mother, Brooke became the adult in the household at thirteen. She had always taken care of the people in her life, especially her boyfriend, Jared. If it wasn't for Brooke, Jared wouldn't know how to function throughout the day. When Brooke's best friend, Nicole, gives her a gift of going on a cruise without telling her that it's a single's cruise, will Brooke find someone willing to be her constant and finally leave Jared? Brooke and Easton learn that people are brought into their lives for many reasons. Over time, they find out what those reasons are. Some are to be a temporary acquaintance while others are there for life.

A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT. Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy. This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.
