Ivey De’Long is an inquisitive, young boy entering his adolescent years. He lives in Baton Rouge with his mom and dad but spends his summers visiting his grandparents in Middle Creek Bottom, Louisiana. It’s the summer of 1919, and he’s just arrived, set to explore the swamps of this beautiful land, or, as his French grandmother calls it, “la belle terre.” Upon his arrival, Ivey reunites with his best friend G.W., and together they fish the bayous, search for hidden treasure, and make some mischief. All his life, Ivey has been taught people are the same on the inside, regardless of race, so he doesn’t understand why townsfolk don’t always look fondly on a white boy running around with a poor, black kid in the swamp. In the spirit of To Kill a Mockingbird, young Ivey tells the story of racial tension in the American South and proves that prejudice goes well beyond skin color.

In the nationally bestselling Roger Zelazny’s THE DAWN OF AMBER, John Gregory Betancourt began the epic exploration into how the world of Amber and all of its shadow worlds came into existence. The young warrior named Oberon, who is destined to found a dynasty and rule over Amber, was rescued from attacking hell creatures by his father, Dworkin, and introduced to his brothers and sisters—and his heritage as a Prince of the Courts of Chaos. But the shadow world called Juniper, the home of Dworkin and his kin, came under deadly attack by unknown and overwhelming forces. After sending the rest of the family to distant shadow worlds for their own safety, Dworkin and Oberon, and Oberon’s half-brother Aber, traveled to the center of the known universe and the lair of their enemies, the Courts of Chaos, to put an end to the undeclared blood feud. In TO RULE IN AMBER, the story picks up when Oberon takes on the reins of leadership, and he carves an empire from the new universe created by his father. Enemies new and old lie in wait, and creating a kingdom for himself and his heirs requires delicate political maneuvering, a will of iron, and the might of a born warrior. Power-mad siblings, a madman for a father, assassins, and the King of Chaos are just the beginning of his troubles. Oberon must learn to master them all, if he is To Rule in Amber. The more Oberon tries to do to clear the family name, the worse the situation becomes, until the mysteriously missing Dworkin Trumps into the scene and snatches him away. Dworkin has no intention of trying to clear his name right now, especially since he is a traitor, having stolen the magical object known as the Jewel of Judgement. This he needs to create a new, equally powerful universe from which to oppose the Courts of Chaos, the universe that will be known as Amber . . . a universe built from magic, will power, and royal blood.

The vampire Saint-Germain, known in this time as Zangi-Ragozh, is peacefully doing business in Asia when the island of Krakatoa explodes in a massive volcanic eruption. Tidal waves swamp harbors hundreds of miles away, destroying trade ships and their cargoes; tons of ash and dirt are flung into the air. In the months to come, the world grows colder and darker as the massive volcanic cloud spreads across the globe, blocking sunlight. Sea trade is ravaged. Crops fail. Livestock, and then people, begin to starve. Disease spreads. Panic rises. As always in times of trouble, foreigners-and the vampire is always a foreigner-become targets. Fleeing toward the West, where he hopes to find safety and sanity, the vampire travels with a nomadic tribe led by Dukkai, a female shaman who soon becomes Zangi-Ragozh's lover. But Zangi-Ragozh's problems are far from over. His vampire nature is discovered by an enemy; he begins to starve; he is betrayed by one he cared deeply for; he loses everything, even his last sack of his native soil. With the True Death looming, Zangi-Ragozh tries to reach sanctuary in his ancient homeland. Transylvania.
