Dreams Of Gods And Monsters from the Author: Laini Taylor. Die phantastische ›Zwischen den Welten‹-Trilogie geht zu Ende wie sie begonnen hat – furios und bildgewaltig! Was würdest du geben, damit das Gute siegt? Wie weit würdest du gehen, um deine Welt zu beschützen? Wen würdest du retten, wen verraten? Als der brutale Seraphim-Regent Jael seine Armee in die Welt der Menschen bringt, werden Karou und Akiva endlich wiedervereint – nicht als Liebespaar, aber in einer Allianz gegen ihren gemeinsamen Feind. Der Traum, den sie einst zusammen geträumt hatten, sah anders aus, aber sie kämpfen dennoch um Frieden und einen Neuanfang für Chimären und Engel. Und für sie beide ...

Days Of Blood And Starlight from the Author: Laini Taylor. Langersehnt und endlich da: »Days of Blood and Starlight« Der Folgeband zu »Daughter of Smoke and Bone« Wo würdest du dich verstecken, wenn die ganze Welt nach dir sucht? Was würdest Du tun, wenn deine große Liebe plötzlich deine Familie auf dem Gewissen hat? Wie würdest du entscheiden, wem du trauen kannst, und wem nicht? Der Traum vom Frieden, den Karou und Akiva einst teilten, ist vorbei. Wenn aus Liebe Hass wird, kann uns nur noch die Hoffnung retten... Karous Welt ist zusammengebrochen: Ihre große Liebe, der Seraph Akiva, ist für den Tod ihrer Familie verantwortlich. Jetzt hat sie nur noch ein Ziel: den jahrtausendealten Krieg zwischen den Chimären, zu denen sie selbst gehört, und den Seraphim zu beenden. Gemeinsam mit ihrem einstigen Feind Thiago -dem Weißen Wolf- zieht Karou sich in die Wüste Marokkos zurück, um dort eine neue Armee zu bilden. Eine Armee aus Monstern. Und wenn es nach Karou geht, wird zumindest die letzte Vertraute, die ihr geblieben ist, ihre beste Freundin Zuzana, aus alledem herausgehalten werden. Wer Zuzana kennt weiß allerdings, dass sie sich nicht gerne bremsen lässt... Akiva dagegen will sich unbedingt von seiner Schuld befreien. Er hatte nur im Irrtum gehandelt, dachte Karou wäre tot, und wollte sie rächen. Um seine Tat zu sühnen, plant er deshalb einen gefährlichen Verrat an seinen eigenen Leuten. Aber wird Akivas Plan aufgehen? Und kann Karou ihre Trauer überwinden, und Akiva jemals verzeihen? „Wow, ich wünschte, ich hätte dieses Buch geschrieben!“ Patrick Rothfuss

Of Gods And Monsters from the Author: John T. Soister. While Universal's Dracula and Frankenstein (both 1931) have received the most coverage of any of the studio's genre releases, it is the lesser known films that have long fascinated fans and historians alike. Starting with The Last Warning, a 1929 movie released as both a silent and a talkie, Universal provided a decade of films that entertained audiences and sometimes frustrated critics. Each of Universal's horror, science fiction and "twisted mystery" films receives an in-depth essay for each film. The focus is first on the background to the making of the movie and its place in the Universal catalog. A detailed plot synopsis with critical commentary follows. Filmographic data for the film conclude the entry. Universal's The Shadow short film series is covered in an appendix. Many rare illustrations and movie posters are also included.

Dreams Of Gods Monsters from the Author: Laini Taylor. What power can bruise the sky? Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera's rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her. When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited--not in love, but in tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. But with even bigger threats on the horizon, are Karou and Akiva strong enough to stand among the gods and monsters? The New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion as--from the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond--humans, chimaera, and seraphim strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

The Glacier Of Gods And Monsters from the Author: Zabe Truesdell. Souls have power. For thousands of years, self proclaimed gods fought to collect more and more of them, waging battles that raged among the living and the dead. The wars only stopped when they were betrayed by one of their own, locked away in a nightmare prison until they slowly melted away. An order was formed to ensure such powerful creatures never again came into existence. Upon dying, Thomas Salazar found himself recruited into this order. Within hours of becoming a full member, Thomas now finds the order decimated and himself among the most senior members remaining. The architect of his order's downfall appears to be someone bent on becoming exactly what he's now sworn to stop. But to stop this threat, will he become something far more dangerous?
