Year One: Chronicles of The One, Book 1
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (December 2017)
A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora RobertsYear One is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives
It began on New Years Eve.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsedand more than half of the worlds population was decimated.
Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the riveror in the ones you know and love the most.
As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.
In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.
The end has come. The beginning comes next.
Brave New World
Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley's enduring masterwork must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit
"A masterpiece. ... One of the most prophetic dystopian works." Wall Street Journal
Aldous Huxley's profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling orderall at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. A genius who who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of historys keenest observers of human nature and civilization. Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgent relevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.
"Aldous Huxley is the greatest 20th century writer in English." Chicago Tribune

The Pleistocene Plague
A woolly mammoth - hidden for millennia, untouched by time - is found as the Siberian ice thaws.The scientists who discover the prehistoric creature will finally have answers to questions long evading science for centuries.
Years later a strange infectious disease explodes across China. Dr. Cole Patrick and members of The World Health Organization security team are urgently summoned to track down the unknown pathogen.
Before leaving on his expedition the strange illness hits home, infecting a member of Dr. Patrick's family. Racing against time, Cole Patrick investigates into a mysterious Chinese bio-engineering corporation who may be linked to the outbreak. The closer he comes to discovering the truth about the infection the more he realizes the dangers facing humanity and the possibility of a global extinction, the same event that saw the demise of the woolly mammoth over 5000 years ago.
- I believe the best science fiction is rooted in science reality. And while Mammoth is a work of fiction, the science in it is very, very real. This book tells a story that could be happening today, with today's science, today's politics, and today's flawed people at the center. There is no "chosen one" to save us... no silver bullets... and no neat and tidy way for humankind to put the genie back in the bottle. That realism of characters, story, and science is what made this one of my favorite reads for 2016. A compelling read that has me still thinking and googling weeks later. - Gramslam
- Unique and full of originality. ...I think that the whole paleontological pathogen concept is brilliant (especially considering theres plenty of factual science blended in) and even more so, its all expressed through a very vivid, visually rich writing style. - Lucidity
- Great debut novel! I really enjoyed this novel and found that the story moves at a good pace and the action builds consistently. I found that a lot of characters were introduced early in the book and it was initially a challenge to figure out who I should be invested in, but as the story progressed I got more into it and really felt for the characters and what they were going through by the end. Dewar does a good job of telling this story and definitely did his research... - Mary
Blending scientific fact with fiction, the story takes the reader from the desolate landscape of Northern Russia to the offices of the World Health Organization in Washington D.C., from the remains of an American civil war fort in Boston to the streets of Beijing, as it races forward, all while keeping the brain in high gear.

And if she chooses Crew, will she lose her best friend?
Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.The New Yorker
In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.
Lionel Trilling said of Orwells masterpiece, 1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present. Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwells novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

The Handmaid's Tale
Now a Hulu Original Series
The Handmaid's Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.
The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishments calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid's Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.
