Dreams Of Gods And Monsters from the Author: Laini Taylor. Die phantastische ÔÇ║Zwischen den WeltenÔÇ╣-Trilogie geht zu Ende wie sie begonnen hat ÔÇô furios und bildgewaltig! Was w├╝rdest du geben, damit das Gute siegt? Wie weit w├╝rdest du gehen, um deine Welt zu besch├╝tzen? Wen w├╝rdest du retten, wen verraten? Als der brutale Seraphim-Regent Jael seine Armee in die Welt der Menschen bringt, werden Karou und Akiva endlich wiedervereint ÔÇô nicht als Liebespaar, aber in einer Allianz gegen ihren gemeinsamen Feind. Der Traum, den sie einst zusammen getr├Ąumt hatten, sah anders aus, aber sie k├Ąmpfen dennoch um Frieden und einen Neuanfang f├╝r Chim├Ąren und Engel. Und f├╝r sie beide ...

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.

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.

Days Of Blood And Starlight from the Author: Laini Taylor. Langersehnt und endlich da: ┬╗Days of Blood and Starlight┬ź Der Folgeband zu ┬╗Daughter of Smoke and Bone┬ź Wo w├╝rdest du dich verstecken, wenn die ganze Welt nach dir sucht? Was w├╝rdest Du tun, wenn deine gro├če Liebe pl├Âtzlich deine Familie auf dem Gewissen hat? Wie w├╝rdest 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 gro├če Liebe, der Seraph Akiva, ist f├╝r den Tod ihrer Familie verantwortlich. Jetzt hat sie nur noch ein Ziel: den jahrtausendealten Krieg zwischen den Chim├Ąren, zu denen sie selbst geh├Ârt, und den Seraphim zu beenden. Gemeinsam mit ihrem einstigen Feind Thiago -dem Wei├čen Wolf- zieht Karou sich in die W├╝ste Marokkos zur├╝ck, 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 wei├č allerdings, dass sie sich nicht gerne bremsen l├Ąsst... Akiva dagegen will sich unbedingt von seiner Schuld befreien. Er hatte nur im Irrtum gehandelt, dachte Karou w├Ąre tot, und wollte sie r├Ąchen. Um seine Tat zu s├╝hnen, plant er deshalb einen gef├Ąhrlichen Verrat an seinen eigenen Leuten. Aber wird Akivas Plan aufgehen? Und kann Karou ihre Trauer ├╝berwinden, und Akiva jemals verzeihen? ÔÇ×Wow, ich w├╝nschte, ich h├Ątte dieses Buch geschrieben!ÔÇť Patrick Rothfuss

Viking from the Author: Kevin Crossley-Holland. The Norse myths are second only to the Greek myths in their greatness and power, and these stories of giants striding across the Nordic landscape, of stallions pulling the sun's chariot, of the trickster Loki's shapeshifting, of the slaying of monsters and the passions, squabbles and betrayals of gods and goddesses, are magnificent to read. They are selected and slightly adapted from 'The Penguin Book of Norse Myths', Kevin Crossley-Holland's definitive collection of retellings.
