    A new emperor, Aurangzeb, sits on India’s glittering Peacock Throne – the throne he seized from his father while the old emperor still lived. He has paid for it with blood: during the brutal civil war he hunted down and killed his brothers. Now he must return the Moghul Empire to the true path and achieve new glory. But the exercise of great power is isolating. With enemies everywhere, who should he trust? Certainly not his sons. He must rely on himself and the knowledge that there are more ways to subdue a man than on the battlefield.But as the years pass memories haunt him – memories of a father who never loved him and a mother who lies in the Taj Mahal; of murdered brothers and of sons and daughters locked in sunless prisons. He tells himself that everything he has done has been necessary – moral, even. But how will his God judge him?

    Keep your enemies close, and your sons closer…

    The story of the third great Moghul Emperor, Akbar, leader of a triumphant dynasty which contained the seeds of its own destruction.

    Akbar, ruler of a sixth of the world’s people, colossally rich and utterly ruthless, was a contemporary of Elizabeth I, but infinitely more powerful. His reign began in bloodshed when he strangled his treacherous ‘milk-brother’, but it ended in glory.

    Akbar extended his rule over much of Asia, skillfully commanding tens of thousands of men, elephants and innovative technology, yet despite the unimaginable bloodshed which resulted his empire was based on universal religious tolerance.

    However, Akbar’s homelife was more complicated. He defied family, nobles and mullahs to marry a beautiful Rajput princess, whose people he had conquered; but she hated Akbar and turned Salim, his eldest son, against him. What’s more, as any Moghul prince could inherit his father’s crown and become Emperor, his sons were brought up to be intensely competitive and suspicious of each other: to see eachother as rivals for the greatest prize of all. And, as Salim grew to manhood, the relationship between father and son became tainted by rebellion and competition to be the greatest Moghul of them all.

  • THE HOPE FACTORY

    Where innocence, deceit and love collide

    Anand is a Bangalore success story: successful, well-married, rich. At least, that’s how he appears. But if his little factory is to grow, he needs land and money and, in the New India, neither of these is easy to find.

    Kamala, Anand’s family’s maid, lives perilously close to the edge of disaster. She and her clever teenage son have almost nothing, and their small hopes for self-betterment depend on the contentment of Anand’s wife: a woman to whom whims come easily.

    But Kamala’s son keeps bad company. Anand’s marriage is in trouble. And the murky world where crime and wealth and politics meet is a dangerous place for good men, and those who rely on them
    Praise for Lavanya Sankaran’s The Red Carpet
    ‘By the end of [the] very first story, people half a world away have been transformed into complete human beings, full of frailties and fragile self-regard, achingly sympathetic. That’s why The Red Carpet reads like a revelation. . . . I recommend this book so highly!’ Carolyn See, The Washington Post
    ‘Throughout these fine, articulate stories, Lavanya Sankaran brings to life the new and old social worlds of Bangalore. More important, she uses the quiet dignity of her characters to reveal what’s universal in the wide rift between generations. It’s an unusually elegant and nuanced portrait’ John Dalton, author of The Inverted Forest
    ‘[An] animated debut . . . [These stories] are memorable for their subtle wit and convincing evocation of a dynamic world’ Publishers Weekly

    If you’re eating healthily, but just can’t seem to lose weight, you’re not alone. Sugar is the single biggest needle mover when it comes to your health and the number on the scale, but sugar hides in places you’d never expect: whole foods, diet foods, packaged foods, dressings… even sugar substitutes. And it’s not enough simply to cut out or cut back on sugar – you have to cut out the right kinds of sugar.

    In this ground-breaking book, New York Times bestselling author JJ Virgin explains the powerful concept of Sugar Impact: how different sugars react differently in the body. High Sugar Impact foods cause weight gain, energy crashes and inflammation. Low Sugar Impact foods fuel your body for prolonged energy and promote fat burning. This book will pinpoint the most damaging sugars that we eat every day – without even realising it – in common foods like skimmed milk, diet soda, wholegrain bread, and ‘healthy’ sweeteners like agave.

    By swapping high Sugar Impact foods for low Sugar Impact foods you will shed fat fast and transform your body and your health for good. Best of all, you don’t need to eliminate sugar completely or count calories.

    The brutal battle for power continues in the fourth book in the epic Empire of the Moghul series.

    Agra, India, 1606. Jahangir, the triumphant Moghul Emperor and ruler of most of the Indian subcontinent, is doomed. No amount of wealth and ruthlessness can protect him from his sons’ desire for power. The glorious Moghul throne is worth any amount of bloodshed and betrayal; once Jahangir raised troops against his own father; now he faces a bloody battle with Khurram, the ablest of his warring sons.

    Worse is to come. Just as the heirs of Timur the Great share intelligence, physical strength and utter ruthlessness, they also have a great weakness for wine and opium. Once Jahangir is tempted, his talented wife, Mehrunissa, is only too willing to take up the reins of empire. And with Khurram and his half-brothers each still determined to be their father’s heir, the savage battle for the Moghul throne will be more ferocious than even Timur could have imagined…

    ‘TOM PHILLIPS IS A VERY CLEVER, VERY FUNNY MAN’ Greg Jenner

    This is a book about TRUTH – and all the ingenious ways, throughout history, that we’ve managed to avoid it.

    We live in a ‘post-truth’ age, we’re told. The US has a president who openly lies on a daily basis (or who doesn’t even know what’s true, and doesn’t care). The internet has turned our everyday lives into a misinformation battleground. People don’t trust experts any more.

    But was there ever really a golden age of truth-telling? As the editor of the UK’s leading independent fact-checker, Tom Phillips deals with complete bollocks every day. Here, he tells the hilarious story of how we humans have spent history lying to each other – and ourselves – and asks an important question: how can humanity move towards a truthier future?

    PRAISE FOR HUMANS: A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW WE F*CKED IT ALL UP:

    ‘F*cking brilliant’ Sarah Knight, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

    ‘Very funny’ Mark Watson, comedian

    ‘In dark times, it’s reassuring to learn that we’ve always been a bunch of clueless f*cking nitwits’ Stuart Heritage, Don’t Be a Dick, Pete

    ‘A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong… Both readable and entertaining’ Telegraph

  • AMERICAN DIRT

    Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.

    Even though she knows they’ll never sell, Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store. And then one day a man enters the shop to browse and comes up to the register with a few books he would like to buy—two of them her favorites. Javier is erudite. He is charming. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over the city. When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.

    Forced to flee, Lydia and eight-year-old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca ride la bestia—trains that make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier’s reach doesn’t extend. As they join the countless people trying to reach el norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
