Clifford D. Simak - Way Station

This powerfully entertaining and thought-provoking work is one of the all-time great favorites of science fiction.

Allison Holmes, a young audacious psychiatrist, had high ambitions and planned to save the world from its internal demons. On the outside she is a vision of perfection, but dare a man get near to her heart, and he’ll soon discover she is cold, selfish and damaged. No one dared, until Jace Silver a gorgeous hotel entrepreneur who lost his confidence came calling for her services. Immediately, she has an unnatural fever inside that draws her to Jace. He is a delicious wreck and Allison plans to make him her special project. Very special...Jace was the broken one, but Allison is truly the one who needs saving. Allison’s troubles began long before she met Jace. Raised solely by her wealthy and overbearing father after her mother abandoned her at a young age; Allison lived her life as a rebellious teenager and fought against all that her father stood for, which led her into a world of darkness with no way out.After many dead end roads, Allison made it her mission to surpass her father’s success, even if that meant manipulation, unconventional methods, and reinventing the wheel. She vowed to never lose control or allow any man to reign over her again. Since finding greater success, through deviant behaviors, the only way Allison knew; at least she was no longer ruled by her father’s iron fist. However, her success didn’t erase the dark secret of her past that still lays dormant in the depths of her conscience, causing her to behave in a very self-destructive manner when it comes to men. Allison’s charmed life comes to a screeching halt when Jace decides to turn the tables on their doctor patient relationship, making it his goal to cure Allison from her own demons, at any cost. Jace forces Allison to deal with her troubled past, using his own unconventional methods. When Jace appears to suffer a sudden breakdown and demands that she refers to him by the name of Channing, claiming he’s a well-known successful film director, his behavior blindsides Allison. She believes Jace has developed a split personality right before her eyes. His condition is so much worse than she thought; it’s alluring and frightening at the same time. Allison finds herself trapped, and held hostage by her seemingly delusional patient. Allison fears that her practice, and all she worked so hard for will now be jeopardize. This she will not stand for...soon Allison realizes her life might be in jeopardy as well. Did she push her patient too far? Who will save her now?Will Allison escape the clutches of Jace AKA Channing...or will she find that if you take the road less traveled, a once in a lifetime miracle can unchain the past and grant her the fated future she’d always hoped for?

Battle rages across the North, the king of the Northmen still stands firm, and there's only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend, and his oldest enemy: it's time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no one is safe, and no one can be trusted. As his days with a sword are far behind him, it's fortunate that he's deadly with his remaining weapons: blackmail, threats, and torture. Jezal dan Luthar has decided that winning glory is too painful an undertaking and turned his back on soldiering for a simple life with the woman he loves. But love can be painful too-and glory has a nasty habit of creeping up on a man when he least expects it. The king of the Union lies on his deathbed, the peasants revolt, and the nobles scramble to steal his crown. No one believes that the shadow of war is about to fall across the heart of the Union. Only the First of the Magi can save the world, but there are risks. There is no risk more terrible, than to break the First Law...

How do you defend a city surrounded by enemies and riddled with traitors, when your allies can by no means be trusted, and your predecessor vanished without a trace? It s enough to make a torturer want to run if he could even walk without a stick. Northmen have spilled over the border of Angland and are spreading fire and death across the frozen country. Crown Prince Ladisla is poised to drive them back and win undying glory. There is only one problem he commands the worst-armed, worst-trained, worst-led army in the world. And Bayaz, the First of the Magi, is leading a party of bold adventurers on a perilous mission through the ruins of the past. The most hated woman in the South, the most feared man in the North, and the most selfish boy in the Union make a strange alliance, but a deadly one. They might even stand a chance of saving mankind from the Eaters if they didn t hate each other quite so much. Ancient secrets will be uncovered. Bloody battles will be won and lost. Bitter enemies will be forgiven but not before they are hanged.
