When 21-year-old college student, Shanecia Jones came home from college, her entire world was turned upside down when she found her mother in the bedroom, nearly dead from a drug overdose. Always eager to be the one to set things right for the people she loved, she decided, against the urgings of her cousin, Maliah, to confront the leader of the new gang in Liberty City who is responsible for serving her mother's addiction. But once she meets Legend, her life really begins to change. Legend, the unofficial leader of a group of brothers known as the D Boys because of their last name, is not only the youngest of the crew, he is the most savage of them all which is how he got his name. After being confronted by Shanecia, he decided to spare her life and let her leave but, for some reason he can't explain, he is unable to keep her out of his mind and eventually decided he had to make her his. But when he finds out that Shanecia is connected with his enemy in more ways than one, it makes him question how loyal a love they could really have. Shanecia's cousin, Maliah, is in love with Danny, the father of her children and her first love whom she has been with since high school but there is just one problem: Danny, who was once a highly paid street hustler, is now addicted to the very drugs he'd sold to others and he owes a very large debt to Mello, the head of the crew Danny is apart of, who also happens to be Legend's #1 enemy. In order to get back the money Danny owes and to take care of her three children, Maliah starts dancing at a strip club which is where she meets Murk, Legend's brother. When she starts to fall for one of the D Boys while still officially in a relationship with Danny who works for the opposing gang, it puts her in the middle of a street war that she is not sure she wants to take part in. Will she side with her heart, that is pointing her towards Murk or will she stick with the first man she's ever loved and help turn him back into the man he once was? The streets of Miami are savage and ruthless but they are nothing in comparison to what happens when love is thrown into the equation. Will love prevail or will the streets reign supreme over all? Find out in this legendary love story.

Was nun folgt, ist ein Märchen. Ein Märchen?, wirst du vielleicht denken. Märchen sind doch Kinderkram! Doch in diesem Märchen hüpfen keine kleinen Mädchen mit roten Kappen fröhlich durch den Wald. Was zwischen diesen Seiten auf sie lauert ist die wahre Geschichte von Hänsel und Gretel – ein Märchen voller dunkler Zauberer, gefährlicher Hexen und todbringender Drachen. Dieses Märchen ist vielleicht furchterregend, sicherlich blutig und definitiv nichts für Angsthasen; aber anders als alle anderen Märchen, die du kennst, ist dieses hier wahr. "Adam Gidwitz schafft es, die gruselige Gewalt, die in den alten Märchen der Brüder Grimm enthalten ist, mit wunderbar viel Humor und einem großartigen Gespür für Spannung auszubalancieren [...] Er webt Grimms Märchen zu einer einzigen Geschichte mit Hänsel und Gretel als Hauptfiguren zusammen und das macht er so gut, dass man nach der Lektüre davon überzeugt ist, dass die alten Geschichten so und nicht anders erzählt werden sollten." RICK RIORDAN Autor der Percy Jackson-Serie Dieser Titel wurde auf der Leipziger Buchmesse prämiert und mit dem Leipziger Lesekompass ausgezeichnet!

In her famous speech to rouse the English troops staking out Tilbury at the mouth of the Thames during the Spanish Armada's campaign, Queen Elizabeth I is said to have proclaimed, "I may have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king." Whether or not the transcription is accurate, the persistent attribution of this provocative statement to England's most studied and celebrated queen illustrates some of the contradictions and cultural anxieties that dominated the collective consciousness of England during a reign that lasted from 1558 until 1603. In The Heart and Stomach of a King, Carole Levin explores the myriad ways the unmarried, childless Elizabeth represented herself and the ways members of her court, foreign ambassadors, and subjects represented and responded to her as a public figure. In particular, Levin interrogates the gender constructions, role expectations, and beliefs about sexuality that influenced her public persona and the way she was perceived as a female Protestant ruler. With a new introduction that situates the book within the emerging genre of cultural biography, the second edition of The Heart and Stomach of a King offers insight into the continued fascination with Elizabeth I and her reign.
