By the bestselling author of The Ship That Never Was Just after Christmas 1803, convict William Buckley fled an embryonic settlement in the land of the Kulin nation (now the Port Phillip area), to take his chances in the wilderness. A few months later, the local Aboriginal people found the six-foot-five former soldier near death. Believing he was a lost kinsman returned from the dead, they took him in, and for thirty-two years Buckley lived as a Wadawurrung man, learning his adopted tribe's language, skills and methods to survive. The outside world finally caught up with Buckley in 1835, after John Batman, a bounty hunter from Van Diemen's Land, arrived in the area, seeking to acquire and control the perfect pastureland around the bay. What happened next saw the Wadawurrung betrayed and Buckley eventually broken. The theft of Kulin country would end in the birth of a city. The frontier wars had begun. By the bestselling author of The Ship That Never Was, The Ghost and the Bounty Hunter is a fascinating and poignant true story from Australian colonial history.

This modern, groundbreaking YA anthology explores the complexity and beauty of interracial and LGBTQ+ relationships where differences are front and center. When people ask me what this anthology is about, I’m often tempted to give them the complicated answer: it’s about race, and about how being different from the person you love can matter but how it can also not matter, and it’s about Chinese pirate ghosts, black girl vigilantes, colonial India, a flower festival, a garden of poisons, and so, so much else. Honestly, though? I think the answer’s much simpler than that. Color outside the Lines is a collection of stories about young, fierce, brilliantly hopeful people in love.—Sangu Mandanna, editor of Color outside the Lines With stories by: Samira Ahmed | Elsie Chapman | Lauren Gibaldi | Lydia Kang | Michelle Ruiz Keil | Lori M.

Jinx Ballou Bounty Hunter Box Set

“The bounty hunter originally assigned to pick you up.” “Him?” she whimpered. “He's a psycho.” “Won't argue with you on that.” I spared a glance in the mirror. He was barreling into us from behind, apparently trying to ram us.

Jinx Ballou is every fugitive's nightmare In the sun-scorched urban sprawl of Phoenix, Arizona, bounty hunter Jinx Ballou is a singular female figure in a sea of macho men. She'll take on anyone, no matter how big, how well-armed, or how well-connected. From murderers and drug gangs to Chechen gangsters and domestic terrorists. At the same time, Jinx has a nerdy side. She's crazy into comic books and cosplays as Wonder Woman in her spare time. She also happens to be transgender. Each book in this three-volume boxset is a balls-to-the-wall, white-knuckle action thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the very last. Chaser: Book 1 A teenage murder suspect has vanished. Is Holly Schwartz a desperate killer fleeing prosecution? Or has something more sinister happened? Jinx is determined to learn the truth and return Holly to custody. But the pursuit takes a deadly turn, forcing her to push her skills, her body, and her luck to the limit to capture the fugitive teen and get out alive. Extreme Prejudice: Book 2 Hot on the heels of an accused murderer, Jinx discovers her fugitive is involved with White Nation, a militant organization stoking the fires of prejudice and violence in Phoenix, Arizona. To apprehend her suspect, she infiltrates White Nation, only to come face-to-face with Barclay “The Beast” Dietz, the man who nearly killed her years earlier. Her efforts to bring both men to justice backfire, putting those she loves most in harm’s way. As the city erupts in bigotry and bloodshed, Jinx’s world unravels, pushing her to the breaking point and forcing her to choose between seeking justice and saving lives. A Broken Woman: Book 3 Bounty hunter Jinx Ballou is struggling to rebuild her life after a terrorist attack shattered her world. When a new job offer comes her way, she is forced to choose between returning an innocent transgender woman to custody or taking on a legal system that provides justice only to those society deems worthy. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner, and Sara Paretsky won’t want to skip this high-octane, blood-pumping boxset of gritty thrillers with a feminist kick.

It's been over a year since the terrifying events at the Red House Hotel and everything is back to normal, but Colm is still uneasy. He suspects there's someone evil lurking in the darkness, someone who's planning a terrible revenge. When strange things begin to happen again, he's plunged back into a world of sarcastic detectives and frightening mercenaries, awkward romance and the supernatural.

And to make matters worse, if the master criminal known as The Ghost finds the two remaining Lazarus Keys he will become extremely powerful. More powerful than anyone who has ever lived. The only people who can unravel the mystery and stop The Ghost are Colm, his annoying cousin, The Brute, and a pretty American teenager. Time is running out and the clock is ticking. But how do you stop what you can't see?

The Routledge History of Emotions in the Modern World brings together a diverse array of scholars to offer an overview of the current and emerging scholarship of emotions in the modern world. Across thirty-six chapters, this work enters the field of emotion from a range of angles. Named emotions – love, anger, fear – highlight how particular categories have been deployed to make sense of feeling and their evolution over time. Geographical perspectives provide access to the historiographies of regions that are less well-covered by English-language sources, opening up global perspectives and new literatures. Key thematic sections are designed to intersect with critical historiographies, demonstrating the value of an emotions perspective to a range of areas. Topical sections direct attention to the role of emotions in relations of power, to intimate lives and histories of place, as products of exchanges across groups, and as deployed by new technologies and medias. The concepts of globalisation and modernity run through the volume, acting as foils for comparison and analytical tools. The Routledge History of Emotions in the Modern World is the perfect resource for all students and scholars interested in the history of emotions across the world from 1700.

The Drifter and the Samurai

The bounty hunter quickly told Lord Bushido what had happened. After they had finished the story, Lord Bushido was speechless. A monk with a brown robe, the staff, and the boy. That was the Ghost. Now he was protecting the boy.

Ischuru Yakimoto was one of the most skilled samurai warriors in Japan. But even his skill couldn't save him when he came upon the body of a prostitute in a wayside inn and, in a rage, dispatched her murderer-the Emperor's nephew. Such a crime was punishable by death, and almost at once, Yakimoto and the young orphan boy who was his companion became hunted criminals, relentlessly pursued by the Imperial Guard. Thus began Yakimoto's incredible adventure, as a "ghost" from a higher world took him under its protection, saved him time and again from certain capture, and began to teach him the secret ways of spiritual growth and non-violence. The "ghost" possessed magical powers, and Yakimoto vowed that one day he would have those same powers. But first he had to escape the Imperial Guard. And then he had to make his way across the sea to China, and through a forbidding countryside-the boy beside him-to a mysterious temple and an ancient master who himself possessed those same powers and who had counseled the "ghost" in its physical life on earth. It was only after years of meditation, and a final, terrifying confrontation with his most tenacious enemy, that Yakimoto learned the truth about the universe-and himself. A deft blend of action and adventure, mysticism and philosophy, The Drifter and the Samurai tells a provocative tale of one man's difficult journey from violence to enlightenment.
