In a world where every word and gesture is copyrighted, patented, or trademarked, one girl elects to remain silent rather than pay to speak, and her defiant and unexpected silence threatens to unravel the very fabric of society. Speth Jime is anxious to deliver her Last Day speech and celebrate her transition into adulthood. The moment she turns 15, Speth must pay for every word she speaks (´´sorry´´ is a flat $10 and a legal admission of guilt), for every nod ($0.99/sec), for every scream ($0.99/sec), and even every gesture of affection. She´s been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt and can´t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she´s unable to afford. But when Speth´s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family´s crippling debt, she can´t express her shock and dismay without breaking her Last Day contract and sending her family into Collection. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: Rather than read her speech - rather than say anything at all - she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again. Speth´s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family, and the entire city around them. 1.

Nominee, 2018 Audie Awards — Erotica I´ve never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn´t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can´t have, but I should´ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it´s the other side of him I like best. The wild side. Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That´s it. That´s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn´t expect to like them. Includes a special bonus note read by the author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ava Erickson, Sebastian York, Tad Branson, Joe Arden.

From New York Times best-selling author David Mack comes an original, thrilling novel set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Death slumbers in the ashes of silent planets, waiting to be awakened and unleashed.... Twenty years have passed since the interstellar scourge known as the Husnock were exterminated without warning by a being with godlike abilities. Left behind, intact but abandoned, their desolate worlds and derelict ships brim with destructive potential. Now a discovery by a Federation cultural research team has drawn the attention of several ruthless factions. From black market smugglers to alien military forces, it seems every belligerent power in the quadrant hopes to capture the Husnock´s lethal technology. All that stands between the galaxy and those who have come to plunder the cruelest secrets of the Husnock are Admiral William Riker, Captain Christine Vale, and the crew of the Starship Titan. ™, ®, & © 2017 CBS Studios, Inc.
