White, Kiersten, author

"Now that Nina has turned the Watcher's Castle into a utopia for hurt and lonely demons, she's still waiting for the utopia part to kick in. With her sister Artemis gone and only a few people remaining at the castle - including her still-distant mom - Nina has her hands full. Plus, though she gained back her Slayer powers from Leo, they're not feeling quite right after being held by the seriously evil succubus Eve, a.k.a. fake Watcher's Council member and Leo's mom. And while Nina is dealing with the darkness inside, there's also a new threat on the outside, portended by an odd triangle symbol that seems to be popping up everywhere, in connection with Sean's demon drug ring as well as someone a bit closer to home. Because one near-apocalypse just isn't enough, right? The darkness always finds you. And once again, it's coming for the Slayer"-- Provided by publisher.

Deep state

Deep state

Hauty, Chris, author
2020

Recently elected President Richard Monroe--populist, controversial, and divisive--is at the center of an increasingly polarized Washington, DC. Never has the partisan drama been so tense or the paranoia so rampant. In the midst of contentious political turf wars, the White House chief of staff is found dead in his house. A tenacious intern discovers a single, ominous clue that suggests he died from something other than natural causes, and that a wide-ranging conspiracy is running beneath the surface of everyday events: powerful government figures are scheming to undermine the rule of law--and democracy itself. Allies are exposed as enemies, once-dependable authorities fall under suspicion, and no one seems to be who they say they are. The unthinkable is happening. The Deep State is real. Who will die to keep its secrets and who will kill to uncover the truth?-- Publisher's description.

Japanese cooking with manga : easy recipes your friends will love!

Aldeguer, Alexis, author
2018

"Cooking should be fun, and this highly entertaining Japanese cookbook for beginners is packed full of humor and whimsical illustrations.

Each author has a unique take on Japanese food preparation, but they are all equally passionate about food and how it brings people together. Simple step-by-step Japanese food recipes are accompanied by hand-drawn illustrations and commentary on each page--making this manga cookbook read more like a graphic novel than your average collection of recipes. Information about Japanese culture and traditional Japanese cuisine are presented in a charming and accessible way, making learning a new style of cooking as educational as it is entertaining. The colorful manga art and comic-style stories within this illustrated cookbook will appeal to the serious foodie and experimental chef alike."--Amazon.
