Lloyd Kahn's Tiny Homes on the Move (Shelter Publications) chronicles 21st-century nomads — people who inhabit homes that are compact and mobile, either on wheels or in the water. Kahn's fascinating book explores modern travelers who live in vans, pickup trucks, buses, trailers, sailboats, and houseboats that combine the comforts of home with the convenience of being able to pick up and go at any time. The stories and descriptions of these moveable sanctuaries will be valuable and inspirational for anyone thinking outside the box about shelter.

No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there's trouble, former mercenary Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only 24 hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she'll find herself embroiled in a war that could destroy everything she holds dear. Magic Breaks (Ace) is the seventh installment in Ilona Andrews's Kate Daniels urban fantasy series.

After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting All Souls series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches — with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy's final volume, The Book of Life (Viking), Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences — bringing this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.
