Daniel Tammet ist einer von nur 100 Inselbegabten und der vielleicht intelligenteste Mensch der Welt. Sein Gehirn leistet Unvorstellbares. Er lernt fremde Sprachen binnen einer Woche und rechnet fast so schnell wie ein Computer. Tammets Kosmos besteht aus Zahlen, die Farben, Formen und Charaktereigenschaften haben. Für ihn ist Mathematik keine trockene Wissenschaft, sondern bunt und lebendig, eine eigene Welt, der ein poetischer Zauber innewohnt. In diesem Buch lässt er uns erstmals an seiner "Poesie der Primzahlen" teilhaben und zeigt eindrucksvoll, dass die Mathematik Antworten auf die universellen Fragen des Lebens zu geben vermag: nach Zeit, Tod oder Liebe. "'Die Poesie der Primzahlen' lässt die Bewunderung für Tammets Geist ins Unermessliche steigen." Oliver Sacks

Wenn ein Karpatianer sich vermählt, dann für die Ewigkeit. Wenn ein Karpatianer liebt, dann grenzenlos und leidenschaftlich. Als Mikhail Dubrinsky in einer dunklen Stunde die Stimme von Raven vernimmt, dringt sie wie heilendes Licht in seine Verzweiflung. Schon bald ahnt er, dass Raven sein Leben vollkommen verändern wird. Doch Raven weiß noch nicht, was Mikhail vor ihr verbirgt, wer er wirklich ist. Als Mikhail langsam immer mehr von ihr in Besitz nimmt, beginnt Raven zu begreifen, welcher Leidenschaft er fähig ist ... Die Karpatianer besitzen - ähnlich wie Vampire - besondere Fähigkeiten (z. B. Gedankenlesen, in Tiere verwandeln, geschärfte Sinne) und ernähren sich auch von Blut. Sie sind jedoch edle Wesen, die die Menschen nicht töten oder in Ihresgleichen verwandeln. Stattdessen jagen Karpatianer Vampire und werden auch von diesen verfolgt. Die Karpatianer sind jedoch vom Aussterben bedroht, da ihre Frauen immer weniger weibliche Nachkommen hervorbringen. Die männlichen Karpatianer sind auf der Suche nach ihren 'Lebenspartnern', ihrem weiblichen Pendant, mit dem sie erst vollständig werden. Ohne den Lebenspartner laufen sie Gefahr, in eine dunkle Welt der Verzweiflung zu versinken und selber Vampire zu werden ... Mein dunkler Prinz ist die erste Folge einer umfangreichen Karpatianer-Serie von Christine Feehen, die beim Romantic Times Award 2002 einen Preis erhalten hat.
