RANDY BAKER's FORGOTTEN KINGDOMS

Engaging in an ancient struggle of faith, two men at the end of a jetty - a Christian missionary and the educated son of an Indonesian chief - find themselves drowning in an abyss of uncertainty when a harrowing instant brings death and mysteries that test their understanding of God and man.

"I looked up at the sky before I started to sink. There were no stars. You know how it is sometimes when it's real late. That time of night when the stars have moved on. And so I started to sink. Slowly beneath the surface into the salty silky black. And as I fell I kept my eyes open. I don't know maybe I thought I would see him there, my son, falling with me. But I didn't seem him, I only found the missing stars. There. Underwater with me. All around and streaming behind me as I fell." - David


JENNIFER FAWCETT's ATLAS OF MUD

A decade after the world floods, humanity remains adrift. One boat floating among the millions holds special cargo: seeds to plant when land is found, birds to find the land, and a child called Mud.

"In my dream I was flying. I saw land. It looked just like the Reverend told me it did. And there were people - so many people. They were all moving towards the water. . . People on the decks were yelling but their screams were turning into caws and the air filled with birds. I knew you were there. And as the boats moved farther away the water rose over the harbor and towards the city and I knew it was going to cover them all." - Mud


JOE WAECHTER's LAKE UNTERSEE

A troubled teenager longs to leave his parents and their twisted relationships behind to find Antartica's Lake Untersee - where the love of his life is trapped beneath layers and layers of ice.

"It's hard to be in love with someone and feel as if something is hidden." - Gale
