Dear Reader, We are thrilled to invite you to join us on a journey through time! Whatever your taste, you are sure to find something (or many somethings!) in this sampling to whet your reading appetite. The books excerpted in this first collection, brought to you by the combined Tundra and Doubleday imprints of Random House of Canada, represent different genres, and many places in time: the present, the past, the future, and another temporal plane altogether…. Whether you head back to New York and the Triangle Shirt Waist fire of 1911 (wrenchingly re-created in
Touched by Fire
 by award-winning author Irene Watts), or visit the fraught and dangerous landscape of a concentration camp during WWII in Elizabeth Wein’s
Rose Under Fire
, or explore the effects of post-traumatic stress as seen through the eyes of a young teen in
Little Red Lies
, your world will be touched by the imagined lives created by award-winning authors and spinners of marvelous historical fiction. If action and adventure is more to your taste, we encourage you to dip into
Death of a King
, where past and present overlap in a journey to the time of William Wallace. Bloody battles await brave readers—time travel and historical fiction combine in a fast-paced tale. Or, for a taste of exhilarating adventure in an alternative world, try Thomas Wharton’s high fantasy tale,
The Tree of Story 
. Gail Gallant’s
 Apparition
 is a wonderful mystery that pits the living against the dead. It’s a ghostly tale that slowly draws you in and then holds on tight! Paula Weston’s young adult novel
Shadows,
 is a whole different kettle of fish. It’s a paranormal romance with a twist: fallen angels and unsuspecting innocents clash, creating a racy power-struggle between the forces of good and evil. It’s a wild ride, and sets the stage for Book II coming in 2014. We like to think of this virtual sampling as a literary tasting menu. Bon ap
tit!
