A three-book young adult collection from award-winning author Lisa Tuttle, featuring Love Online, Panther in Argyll and Snake Inside.

Love in the digital age has its ups and downs in Love Online.

In Panther in Argyll, Dannielle possesses a rare ability: an empathetic link with creatures, particularly the black panther, her 'totem animal'. But the link means more than just understanding: Dannielle is about to discover the excitement of being able to change into a panther herself . . .

And in Snake Inside Lia is convinced her mother is a murderer, several times over - but she's not a normal serial killer. Could it possible be true that she's turning into a snake to murder all these men? If Lia doesn't find out the truth, and quickly, the results could be calamitous . . .

Endlessly inventive, Lisa Tuttle's young adult collection is a gripping riot of imagination with the subtlety and power of a master storyteller.

'The exciting beginning of a promising new epic fantasy series. Prepare for ancient mysteries, innovative magic, and heart-pounding heists' Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of OathbringerShe thought it was just another job. But her discovery could bring the city to its knees . . .The city of Tevanne runs on scrivings, industrialised magical inscriptions that make inanimate objects sentient; they power everything, from walls to wheels to weapons. Scrivings have brought enormous progress and enormous wealth - but only to the four merchant Houses who control them. Everyone else is a servant or slave, or they eke a precarious living in the hellhole called the Commons. There's not much in the way of work for an escaped slave like Sancia Grado, but she has an unnatural talent that makes her one of the best thieves in the city. When she's offered a lucrative job to steal an ancient artefact from a heavily guarded warehouse, Sancia agrees, dreaming of leaving the Commons - but instead, she finds herself the target of a murderous conspiracy. Someone powerful in Tevanne wants the artefact, and Sancia dead - and whoever it is already wields power beyond imagining. Sancia will need every ally, and every ounce of wits at her disposal, if she is to survive - because if her enemy gets the artefact and unlocks its secrets, thousands will die, and, even worse, it will allow ancient evils back into the world and turn their city into a devastated battleground.'Robert Jackson Bennett deserves a huge audience' Brent Weeks'An altogether terrific read' Sebastien de Castell'Intricate worldbuilding, fascinating magic, and engaging characters.
