Michael Grant presents BZRK ($17.99). Love The Hunger Games? Or action-adventure thrillers with a dystopian twist? Set in the near future, BZRK (Berserk) is the story of a war for control of the human mind. And once again, the best-selling author of the GONE series ramps up the action and suspense to a whole new level of excitement. Michael Grant has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving; he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn’t tie him down. His dream is to spend a whole year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. He lives in Marin County.
