Together, the Triumvirate have fought to save their Britain, and America—indeed, the whole world—from the depredations of a collapsed economy and environmental meltdown. Together they have fought the evil magic of Fiorinda's wizard father; they have explored the depths and heights of ultimate consciousness, the fusion between mind and the world. And they have discovered a love that goes back centuries, and lives. But is all this enough to save a world that has fallen apart at the seams, a world that has given itself over to the dark side?

The death of her mother when Miranda is sixteen exacerbates her condition; nothing, however, satisfies a strange hunger passed down through the women in her family. And then there’s the family house in Dover, England, converted to a bed-and-breakfast by Miranda’s father. Dover has long been known for its hostility toward outsiders. But the Silver House manifests a more conscious malice toward strangers, dispatching those visitors it despises. Enraged by the constant stream of foreign staff and guests, the house finally unleashes its most destructive power.With distinct originality and grace, and an extraordinary gift for making the fantastic believable, Helen Oyeyemi spins the politics of family and nation into a riveting and unforgettable mystery.

Possessed of an extraordinary imagination, she has a hard time fitting in at school.

In the winter of 1953, Boy Novak arrives by chance in a small town in Massachusetts, looking, she believes, for beauty—the opposite of the life she’s left behind in New York. She marries a local widower and becomes stepmother to his winsome daughter, Snow Whitman. A wicked stepmother is a creature Boy never imagined she’d become, but elements of the familiar tale of aesthetic obsession begin to play themselves out when the birth of Boy’s daughter, Bird, who is dark-skinned, exposes the Whitmans as light-skinned African Americans passing for white. Among them, Boy, Snow, and Bird confront the tyranny of the mirror to ask how much power surfaces really hold. Dazzlingly inventive and powerfully moving, Boy, Snow, Bird is an astonishing and enchanting novel. With breathtaking feats of imagination, Helen Oyeyemi confirms her place as one of the most original and dynamic literary voices of our time.

He was twenty-two. Soon recognized as a cryptographer of genius, he became head of communications at the Special Operations Executive (SOE), where he revolutionized the codemaking techniques of the Allies and trained some of the most famous agents dropped into occupied Europe, including "the White Rabbit" and Violette Szabo. As a top codemaker, Marks had a unique perspective on one of the most fascinating and, until now, little-known aspects of the Second World War. Writing with the narrative flair and vivid characterization of his famous screenplays, Marks gives free rein to his keen sense of the absurd and his wry wit, resulting in a thrilling and poignant memoir that celebrates individual courage and endeavor, without losing sight of the human cost and horror of war.

An ancient curse. A stunning medical mystery. And a pioneering journey into the unknown heart of the world's densest jungle.Since the days of conquistador Hernán Cortés, rumors have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden somewhere in the Honduran interior, called the White City or the Lost City of the Monkey God. Indigenous tribes speak of ancestors who fled there to escape the Spanish invaders, and they warn that anyone who enters this sacred city will fall ill and die. In 1940, swashbuckling journalist Theodore Morde returned from the rainforest with hundreds of artifacts and an electrifying story of having found the Lost City of the Monkey God-but then committed suicide without revealing its location.Three quarters of a century later, bestselling author Doug Preston joined a team of scientists on a groundbreaking new quest. In 2012 he climbed aboard a rickety, single-engine plane carrying the machine that would change everything: lidar, a highly advanced, classified technology that could map the terrain under the densest rainforest canopy. In an unexplored valley ringed by steep mountains, that flight revealed the unmistakable image of a sprawling metropolis, tantalizing evidence of not just an undiscovered city but an enigmatic, lost civilization.Venturing into this raw, treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful wilderness to confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quickmud, disease-carrying insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. But it wasn't until they returned that tragedy struck: Preston and others found they had contracted in the ruins a horrifying, sometimes lethal-and incurable-disease.Suspenseful and shocking, filled with colorful history, hair-raising adventure, and dramatic twists of fortune, THE LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century.

In such classics as "The Beekeeper's Daughter," "The Disquieting Muses," "I Want, I Want," and "Full Fathom Five," she writes about sows and skeletons, fathers and suicides, about the noisy imperatives of life and the chilly hunger for death. Graceful in their craftsmanship, wonderfully original in their imagery, and presenting layer after layer of meaning, the forty poems in The Colossus are early artifacts of genius that still possess the power to move, delight, and shock.

Deutschland nach dem Mauerbau: Rebecca Hoffmanns Welt in Ostberlin scheint in Ordnung zu sein - bis sie durch Zufall erfährt, dass der eigene Mann sie seit Jahren im Auftrag der Stasi bespitzelt. Als sie ihn zur Rede stellt, begeht sie einen verhängnisvollen Fehler, den sie und ihre Familie ihr Leben lang bereuen sollen. In den USA erlebt George Jakes als Vertrauter von Justizminister Robert Kennedy hautnah den Kampf der Bürgerrechtsbewegung gegen Rassismus, Intoleranz und Ungerechtigkeit - und bekommt am eigenen Leib zu spüren, was es heißt, ein Farbiger zu sein. Cameron Dewar ist Republikaner, aber auch er kämpft unbeirrt für seine Überzeugungen. Als CIA-Agent muss er sich in einer Welt aus Täuschung, Lügen und Intrigen zurechtfinden. Ähnlich geht es Dimka Dworkin, dem jungen Berater von Nikita Chruschtschow, als sich Sowjetunion und USA in einen Konflikt stürzen, der die Welt an den Rand des Atomkriegs führt. Seine Schwester Tanja begibt sich als Journalistin an die Brennpunkte des Geschehens, von Moskau über Kuba bis nach Prag und Warschau - dorthin, wo Weltgeschichte geschrieben wird. Der in sich abgeschlossene Roman erzählt die miteinander verbundenen Schicksale von Menschen aus Ost und West vor dem Hintergrund der politischen und gesellschaftlichen Umwälzungen vom Anfang der Sechziger- bis zum Ende der Achtzigerjahre. 100 Jahre nach dem Beginn des Ersten Weltkriegs, 75 Jahre nach dem Beginn des Zweiten Weltkriegs, 50 Jahre nach der Aufhebung der Rassentrennung in den USA, 25 Jahre nach dem Fall der Mauer bringt Ken Follett seine Jahrhundert-Trilogie zu einem packenden und furiosen Finale.
