“Powerful.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s Fresh Air Named a best book of the year by NPR, Kirkus Reviews, and BookPage • One of the most anticipated novels of the fall from New York magazine, Glamour, Lit Hub, Boston magazine, The Millions, and BookPage David Federman has never felt appreciated. An academically gifted yet painfully forgettable member of his New Jersey high school class, the withdrawn, mild-mannered freshman arrives at Harvard fully expecting to be embraced by a new tribe of high-achieving peers. Initially, however, his social prospects seem unlikely to change, sentencing him to a lifetime of anonymity. Then he meets Veronica Morgan Wells. Struck by her beauty, wit, and sophisticated Manhattan upbringing, David becomes instantly infatuated. Determined to win her attention and an invite into her glamorous world, he begins compromising his moral standards for this one, great shot at happiness. But both Veronica and David, it turns out, are not exactly as they seem. Loner turns the traditional campus novel on its head as it explores ambition, class, and gender politics. It is a stunning and timely literary achievement from one of the rising stars of American fiction.

An abusive childhood has forged Nathan Kirkland into the man he has become-a hard-working, strong-minded, self-made millionaire. Add to that his extraordinary good looks, and he appears to have it all. There's just one problem: to blunt the pain of his past, Nathan has walled himself into isolation, both emotional and physical. Social interactions unnerve this intentional loner, and Nathan is convinced that the only way to avoid hurt is to be the one doing the hurting. While many around him fall for his chameleon-like personalities, there are some who know the destruction of which Nathan is capable and are determined to bring it to light. Threatened, Nathan becomes merciless in his quest for revenge and frantic in his struggle to maintain the facade of his life. But when confronted with an unattainable woman, Nathan can no longer hide behind his pretense of perfection, and his long-sequestered vulnerability unfolds. His all-too-flawless world turns upside down, opening emotions Nathan thought he'd buried long ago and leading to chilling consequences. The Loner is a tightly woven tale of a man who is not what he seems to be and a fascinating probe into the psyche of a person who discovers the inevitable price of fleeing the past.

The shadow of the Arzkek moved across the world in unstoppable waves, soaking the land in blood, worshipping at the demon haunted alters of pagan gods. But far to the north, on the boundaries of their land, these imperials tentatively control a realm of a giant mountain range; the Yorthani Mountains. The people were beaten and oppressed, but one by one the young men fled. There was nowhere for them to go, nowhere save deeper into the mountains, where giants and monsters dwelt, where the cold and the elements were as great a danger as the predators. There the strong survived; there the free became wild and the courageous predators. There they became loners. But when their people call out, when ancient prophesies become flesh, when a madman takes the throne, when enemies must become allies, then the loners must become brothers and raise a last standard for freedom's cause.
