ELLINWOOD — There are new books at the Ellinwood School/Community Library. They are:
“The Dark Legacy of Shannara: Witch Wraith” by Terry Brooks. For centuries the Four Lands were protected by magic-enhanced borders, and the ark dimension was kept at bay. But now the ancient wards securing the barrier between order and mayhem have begun to erode, and generations of monstrous creatures, fueled by a rage thousands of years in the making, are poised to seek revenge for their imprisonment. Can young Elf Arling Elessedil close the breach, or is she doomed?
“White Fire” by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue Corrie Swanson from serious trouble with the law. When he arrives, a brutal arsonist begins burning down multimillion dollar mansions with the families locked inside. As Pendergast delves deeper into the case, he discovers a connection to long dead miners, a long-lost Sherlock Holmes story, and clues to the modern day murders.
“No Man’s Nightingale” by Ruth Rendell. Inspector Wexford is called from retirement to assist with the investigation of a female vicar Sarah Hussain. Sarah was a single mother working in a male dominated profession, and an outspoken church reformer, turning many against her. Could one of her enemies have gone so far as to kill her? But then Wexford finds a clue that begins to illuminate the murky past of Sarah. Is there more to her than meets the eye?
“Songs of Willow Frost” by Jamie Ford. Young orphan William Eng is convinced that an actress named Willow Frost is his long lost mother Liu Song. Determined to find the actress and prove his fantasy, William and his friend Charlotte escape from the orphanage and navigate the streets of Seattle and find themselves confronting the mysteries of William’s past.
“Mirage” by Clive Cussler. When Juan Cabrillo’s friend utters mysterious words in his dying breath, Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon set off in search of answers. What they find is astonishing, and involves the disappearance of a U.S. destroyer, experiments in electromagnetic radiation, and a corrupt Russian admiral who’s developed a weapon that could forever alter the fate of nations. Can they stop the devastation?
“Dust” by Patricia Cornwell. Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta is called to investigate the brutal murder of a MIT computer engineer, weeks before the victim’s $100 million lawsuit against her former financial managers. Scarpetta doubts that it’s a coincidence, and also fears the case may have a connection with her computer genius niece, Lucy.
