Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Katherine Howe, author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, returns with an entrancing historical novel set in Boston in 1915, where a young woman stands on the cusp of a new century, torn between loss and love, driven to seek answers in the depths of a crystal ball. Still reeling from the deaths of her mother and sister on the Titanic, Sibyl Allston is living a life of quiet desperation with her taciturn father and scandal-plagued brother in an elegant town house in Boston's Back Bay. Trapped in a world over which she has no control, Sybil flees for solace to the parlor of a table-turning medium. But when her brother is suddenly kicked out of Harvard under mysterious circumstances and falls under the sway of a strange young woman, Sibyl turns for help to psychology professor Benton Jones, despite the unspoken tensions of their shared past. As Benton and Sibyl work together to solve a harrowing mystery, their long-simmering spark flares to life, and they realize that there may be something even more magical between them than a medium's scrying glass. From the opium dens of Boston's Chinatown to the opulent salons of high society, from the back alleys of colonial Shanghai to the decks of the Titanic, The House of Velvet and Glass weaves together meticulous period detail, intoxicating romance, and a final shocking twist in a breathtaking novel that will thrill readers. Bonus features in the eBook: Katherine Howe's essay on scrying; Boston Daily Globe article on the Titanic from April 15, 1912; and a Reading Group Guide and Q&A with the author, Katherine Howe.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Clinging to life, two post-apocalyptic disaster survivors are rescued from a chaotic and violent struggle on the east coast of Canada. Believing they're safe, they are precipitously quarantined on a ship by the government, watched 24/7, and poked and prodded like laboratory animals. Nathan King is assured by chemical biologist Stan Imes that the injections are merely anti-radiation medication, and the quarantine is necessary to insure they aren't infected by a rage virus that has turned much of the population into frenzied, frothing killer zombies. But survivor Velvet Jones doesn't buy it. After learning of a vicious murder, she tries to convince Nathan they are being genetically modified into the perfect super soldiers, to fight the battles of the demented megalomaniacs in power. Nathan isn't so sure. But he soon realizes his mind is not his own anymore after violent impulses surface, propelling him to want to murder Velvet, perhaps his only ally in this living hell. Soon he learns they aren't alone. Other test subjects, some whose blood types spawn uncontrollable violent urges, are kept in a special facility and subjected to all manner of torturous behavior control techniques. The so-called deviants are ultimately executed if their adverse behaviors can't be rectified. Suffering violent and murderous side effects, Nathan and Velvet must find some sanity in a world gone mad, and fight the most horrific battle of their lives.
