From Jen Williams, highly acclaimed author of the Copper Cat trilogy and three-time British Fantasy Award finalist, comes the second novel in the electrifying Winnowing Flame trilogy - the sequel to The Ninth Rain. Epic fantasy for fans of Robin Hobb and Adrian Tchaikovsky. 'Fantasy adventure at its very best' Starburst 'Williams excels at eldritch world-building' Guardian The Ninth Rain has fallen. The Jure'lia are awake. Nothing can be the same again. Tormalin the Oathless and the fell-witch Noon have their work cut out rallying the first war-beasts to be born in Ebora for three centuries. But these are not the great winged warriors of old. Hatched too soon and with no memory of their past incarnations, these onetime defenders of Sarn can barely stop bickering, let alone face an ancient enemy who grow stronger each day. The key to uniting them, according to the scholar Vintage, may lie in a part of Sarn no one really believes exists - a distant island, mysteriously connected to the fate of two legendary Eborans who disappeared long ago. But finding it will mean a perilous journey in a time of war, while new monsters lie in wait for those left behind. Join the heroes of THE NINTH RAIN as they battle a terrible evil, the likes of which Sarn has never known. What readers are saying about THE BITTER TWINS: 'The sequel to the brilliant Ninth Rain kicks it up a notch with more action, scarier monsters and a more expansive story' 'Be ready for some great reveals and twists that may break your heart, but that will overall leave you fist pumping the air' 'The world building continues to blow my mind'

Esmeralda's back. Readers met this feisty widow as she fussed over her fellow citizens of a small southern town in Margaret Graham's novel Mercy Me. Now in a delightful sequel, Esmeralda feels led to take on a new project. A halfway house for female addicts finds itself in need of a responsible woman to move in and help out, and against her better judgment, Esmeralda volunteers. She knows nothing about drugs or about much of anything else these women have been through. But she knows when she's being "led," so she packs up her life, moves to the mountains, and becomes a housemother. There she meets women with lives she could never imagine, and she must navigate well outside her comfort zone. Soon enough, she learns how to love the unloved-and to accept their love in return. Good Heavens is packed with hilarity, humanity, and good lessons. Graham once again has given readers a lovable and very human believer to accompany as she plods through alien territory with her Bible in hand.

Semiotics offers a systematic approach to analysing the stylistic structure of film. When this study was originally published in 1983 this was a recent addition to the methods of film study and it presents an explanation of film semiotics with direct application to comparative film research. It takes as its representative subject one trilogy of films and applies semiology, with careful textual analysis. The book begins with a basic introduction to semiotics and the ideas of Christian Metz on cinesemiotics. It then presents a syntagmatic analysis of each of the three Dollars films, with an outline of autonomous segments for each and a discussion of the findings before undertaking a wider analysis of the trilogy as a whole with commentary on the stylistic unity of the director’s work. This book, an enduring detailed study of these three films, also outlines clearly this method of classifying the formal structuring codes of film communication.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

Die Wattpad-Sensation jetzt als Buch! Zehn Jahre Sklavenarbeit für alle. Fast alle. In England muss jeder, der nicht zum magischen Adel gehört, zehn Jahre lang als Sklave arbeiten. Lukes Familie will diese Sklavenjahre gemeinsam durchstehen, im Dienst der mächtigen Herrscherfamilie Jardine. Doch nun rast Lukes Herz vor Angst, als er plötzlich von den anderen getrennt und in die laute und schmutzige Fabrikstadt Millmoor gebracht wird. Die Arbeit dort ist besonders hart. Seine Schwestern sind mit den Eltern am prunkvollen Hofe der Jardines den rücksichtslosen Machtspielen und eiskalten Intrigen der Elite ausgesetzt. Vor allem der junge Adlige Silyen verfolgt mit seinen ungeheuerlichen magischen Fähigkeiten eigene Ziele. Und Lukes Schwester Abi verliert ihr Herz an den Falschen. Also das verstand man unter ›Geschick‹, dachte Luke, als er wieder einen klaren Gedanken fassen konnte. Ein so unerträglicher Schmerz, dass man sich wünschte, man wäre tot. Wie sollte man dagegen ankämpfen? Wie konnte man Menschen besiegen, die dazu fähig waren? Nicht Menschen – Monster. Es spielte keine Rolle, dass es nur wenige von ihnen gab: Diese Wenigen genügten völlig.
