'TERRY'S PLACE IS AT THE HEAD OF THE FANTASY WORLD' Philip Pullman The first book of the triumphant four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy. The age of peace that has reigned across the Four Lands is now at an end. An army of invaders, wielding a terrible new magic, is cutting a bloody swathe across the far north . . . The fate of the world now rests on the shoulders of an exiled druid, a conflicted warrior and a young woman struggling to master a powerful magic. As the conflict grows, they will face dangerous adversaries and deadly challenges - and the consequences of their actions will determine the future of the Four Lands. Through twenty-eight novels written over the course of forty years, Terry Brooks's Shannara series has entranced millions of readers around the world. Now, with The Black Elfstone - the first book in the Fall of Shannara - Terry begins to bring his epic vision to a grand conclusion. 'I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and re-read) over the years' Patrick Rothfuss 'I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara' Peter V. Brett 'A master of the craft . . . required reading' Brent Weeks

An einem nebligen Abend startet ein Privatjet zu einem Flug nach New York. Wenige Minuten später stürzt er in den Atlantik. Nur der Maler Scott Burroughs und der vierjährige JJ überleben inmitten der brennenden Trümmer. Und Scott gelingt das Unmögliche: Er schafft es, den Jungen an das weit entfernte Ufer zu retten. Während die Suchtrupps fieberhaft nach den Leichen und der Blackbox fahnden, greifen immer abstrusere Verschwörungstheorien um sich. Scott versucht verzweifelt, sich den Medien zu entziehen – und gerät dabei in eine Welt der Intrigen und Manipulationen, in der niemand vor dem brutalen Fall ins Nichts geschützt ist.

Re•lent•less (ri lent/lis): an attitude or posture that is resolute, uncompromising, persistent, unyielding, constant, unstoppable, ruthless. The opposite of slacken, waver, or concede. If ever there was a need for followers of Jesus to be resolute in purpose, uncompromising for truth, persistent in faith, unyielding in hope, constant in love, and unstoppable in advancing the kingdom…it’s now! God is ruthless in His love and pursuit of us; it’s time for His Bride to reflect the same passion. John Bevere explores how people of Bible times and today became relentless: John the Baptist spent years living in a barren desert. Jesus endured hardship in a desolate wilderness of temptation. Both men emerged strong in the “power of the Spirit,” relentless in not just getting through challenges but in ruling over their circumstances. Ultimately, they succeeded in their God-given life mission. In Relentless, you’ll learn how even seemingly impossible situations were never meant to stop you but to propel you forward in your journey. Discover in these biblically grounded truths how you can thrive no matter what your season of life. How you begin is not nearly as important as how you finish. Embrace your trials and become relentless! Questions for reflection and discussion included! From the Hardcover edition.

Opfer oder Täterin? Nein, richtig sympathisch ist Emma nicht. Sie steht gern im Mittelpunkt, die Jungs reißen sich um sie und Emma genießt es. Bis sie nach einer Party zerschlagen und mit zerrissenem Kleid vor ihrem Haus aufwacht. Klar, sie ist auf der Party mit Paul ins Schlafzimmer gegangen. Hat Pillen eingeworfen. Die anderen Jungs kamen hinterher. Aber dann? Sie erinnert sich nicht, aber die gesamte Schule weiß es. Sie haben die Fotos gesehen. Ist Emma wirklich selber schuld? Was hat sie erwartet – Emma, die Schlampe in dem ultrakurzen Kleid? Ein aufwühlendes, vielfach preisgekröntes Buch. »Seid tapfer. O'Neills Roman ist erschreckend, aber auch packend und unverzichtbar wichtig.« New York Times

Über die Zeit im Konzentrationslager Auschwitz hat sein Großvater nie gesprochen. Und auch nicht über seine Gründe, in Brasilien ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Stattdessen hat er sich eingeschlossen, um die Welt so zu beschreiben, wie sie hätte aussehen können. Bis er sich eines Tages umgebracht hat. Wie ein Fluch zieht sich das Nichterinnernkönnen durch die Familie, denn der Sohn erkrankt an Alzheimer. Erst dem Enkel, dem Tagebuchschreiber, gelingt es nach einer Lebenskrise, aus dem Nebel des Ungesagten herauszufinden. Michel Laub schildert in seinem fulminanten Roman den Sturz dreier Generationen einer Familie. Und führt dem Leser damit eindringlich vor Augen, wie sehr unsere Wurzeln und Erinnerungen uns bestimmen.

This is the first volume of a projected six-volume Commentary on Homer's Iliad, under the General Editorship of professor G. S. Kirk. Professor Kirk himself is the editor of the present volume, which covers the first four Books of Iliad. It consists of four introductory chapters, dealing in particular with rhythm and formular techniques, followed by the detailed commentary which aims at helping serious readers by attempting to identify and deal with most of the difficulties which might stand in the way of a sensitive and informed response to the poem. The Catalogues in Book 2 recieve especially full treatment. The book does not include a Greek text - important matters pertaining to the text are discussed in the commentary. It is hoped that the volume as a whole will lead scholars to a better understanding of the epic style as well as of many well-known thematic problems on a larger scale. This Commentary will be an essential reference work for all students of Greek literature. Archaeologists and historians will also find that it contains matters of relevance to them.
