The Storm
of Echoes
Christelle Dabos
Translated from the French by Hildegarde Serle
“A hallucinatory marriage of Pride and Prejudice
and A Game of Thrones.”—Matthew Skelton,
author of the Endymion Spring books
In this gripping finale to Christelle Daboss
international best-selling Mirror Visitor saga,
Ophelia, the mirror-traveling heroine,
and Thorn discover that the truth
they have been seeking is behind the mirror.
Christelle Dabos takes us on a journey to the
heart of a great game to which the all-too-human
affairs of her book’s protagonists are ominously
connected.
The distrust between them has been overcome
and now Ophelia and Thorn love each other
passionately. However, they must keep their love
hidden. Arriving by different routes, Ophelia
and Thorn reach the observatory of the Devia-
tions, an institute shrouded in absolute secrecy
and overseen by a sect of mystical scientists
who secretly conduct terrifying experiments.
There, Ophelia and Thorn hope to discover
truths that will halt the destruction and death
and bring the world back into balance.

“As mesmerizing as a waking dream.”Margaret Rogerson, New York Times best-selling author of An Enchantment of Ravens
“Imagine the poisonous politics of Versailles in a glittering, steampunk world of quill pens, airships, masks,
illusions and murderous courtiers.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Pulse-pounding suspense, memorable characters, rival clans and elaborate political arrangements rooted in myth.”
—The Buffalo News
“A series that is nothing like any YA book series on the shelves today. Ophelia is the type of character I love to read about:
great at some things, terrible at others, brave at times, cowardly at times, brilliant at times, and frustrating
at other times. I could read about her all day.”Barnes & Noble Review
“Your next YA obsession.”Entertainment Weekly

A Single Rose
Muriel Barbery
Translated from the French by Alison Anderson
From the best-selling author of
The Elegance
of the Hedgehog
comes a story about
a woman’s journey to discover the father
she hardly knew and a love she never
thought possible.
Rose has just turned forty when she gets a call
from a lawyer asking her to come to Kyoto for
the reading of her estranged father’s will.
And so, for the first time in her life she finds
herself in Japan, where Paul, her father’s
assistant, is waiting to greet her.
As Paul guides Rose along a mysterious itinerary
designed by her deceased father, her bitterness
and anger are soothed by the stones and the
trees in the Zen gardens they visit.
Rose encounters acquaintances of her father—
including a potter and poet, an old lady friend,
his housekeeper and chauffeur—whose
interactions help her to slowly begin to accept
a part of herself that she has never before
acknowledged. As the reading of the will gets
closer, Rose’s father is finally opening his heart
to his daughter, offering her a poignant
understanding of his love and a way
to accept all she has lost.
Contemporary women’s fiction set in contempo-
rary Kyoto, Japan, by a best-selling author, this
novel explores universal themes
of loss, abandonment, grief, finding love and
understanding where you weren’t looking for it.

A funny and touching story and the perfect
gift for writers, readers, fans of Muriel Barbery,
and cat lovers.
A delightful, delicate tale that pays tribute
to the poetry of the everyday,
to Japanese philosophy, and to the ingenuity
and sardonic humor of cats.
What a mysterious, confounding thing
is a writer! Yet, spend a little time with
the writer’s cats and one might just understand
her better.
Muriel Barbery, via her feline friends
and co-conspirators, takes readers into
her atelier, offering them a behind-the-scenes
peek into her process and problems, joys
and disappointments. The tale is told from
the perspective of one of the writer’s four cats,
Kirin, who, together with her cohort, may
or may not be a reliable narrator. There’s Ocha,
the leader of the gang, a tough guy with a soft
heart; the bandy-legged and affectionate Mizu,
Ocha’s sister; the phlegmatic and refined Petrus,
lover of flowers; and finally, pretty Kirin,
narrator of this bewitching story.

Trust
Domenico Starnone
Translated from the Italian by Jhumpa Lahiri
By National Book Award Finalist, Domenico
Starnone, translated by Pulitzer Prize-winning
author, Jhumpa Lahiri. Following
the international success of
Ties
and
the multi-award-winning
Trick
, Starnone
gives readers another searing novel on
the complexities of human relationships.
Pietro and Teresa’s love affair is tempestuous
and passionate. After yet another terrible
argument, she suggests they confess something
that they’ve never told another person,
something they’re too ashamed to tell anyone.
They will hear the other’s confessions without
judgment and with love in their hearts. In this
way, Teresa thinks, they will remain united
forever, more intimately connected than ever.
A few days after sharing their shameful secrets,
they leave each other. But through marriage,
fatherhood, professional success, and into old
age Pietro remains haunted by the shadow
of the secret he once confessed to his lover.
A master storyteller and a novelist of the highest
order, Starnone’s gaze is trained on the fault
lines in our public personas and the
contradictions inherent in our private selves.
Trust asks to what lengths is one willing
to go to show the world only one’s best side
and suggests that we are all at our most
dangerous when we are at our most vulnerable.
