Anasoma, gioiello dell’Impero Mahruse, è caduta. L’esercito di Indryalla, guidato dal potente dio-imperatore, asserraglia la città sterminando la popolazione e i Protettori, potenti maghi al servizio del legittimo sovrano. Un manipolo di uomini riesce però a fuggire verso occidente grazie all’aiuto del giovane Caldan, apprendista Protettore, impegnato anche a salvare la mente di Miranda dall’incantesimo esercitato dalla maga Bells. E mentre le forze oscure della magia si muovono nell’ombra, un giro di destini si incrocia nel tentativo di fronteggiare l’avanzata degli Indryallani: la resistenza, l’impresa mercantile più potente dell’impero, mercenari assoldati da un gruppo di maghi, eroici spadaccini. Immerso in un frenetico gioco di complotti e colpi di scena, Caldan comprende che i suoi promettenti poteri rischiano di essere più una maledizione che una benedizione. In una guerra in cui bene e male si confondono, le forze che attaccano l’impero dovranno scontrarsi con un nemico la cui vera natura assume tratti inquietanti, e presto il sangue degli innocenti potrebbe macchiare le mani dello stesso Caldan...

A novice sorcerer may hold the key to saving his world—or be the instrument of its destruction—in this second book in The Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, a mesmerizing saga of high fantasy that combines magic, malevolence, and mystery. Anasoma, jewel of the Mahruse Empire, has fallen. As orphaned, monk-raised Caldan and his companions flee the city, leaving behind their hopes for a new beginning, horrors from the time of the Shattering begin to close in. With Miranda’s mind broken by forbidden sorcery, Caldan does the unthinkable to save her: he breaks the most sacrosanct laws of the Protectors. But when the emperor’s warlocks arrive to capture him, Caldan realizes that his burgeoning powers may be more of a curse than a blessing, and the enemies assailing the empire may be rivaled by more sinister forces within. And soon, the blood of innocents may be on Caldan’s own hands.

“It’s...the Machiavellian intrigue that makes this such an enjoyable read. When the iron curtain came down people said the spy-thriller genre was dead. They were wrong. This is as full of intrigue as a Deighton or a Le Carré.” —THE GUARDIAN Winter in the year of our Lord 1372. A river pilot falls into the icy waters of the River Ouse during a skirmish between dockworkers and the boys of the minster school, which include Owen Archer’s adopted son Jasper. But what began as a confrontation to return a boy’s stolen scrip becomes a murder investigation as the rescuers find the pilot dying of wounds inflicted before his plunge into the river. When another body is fished from the river upstream and Owen discovers that the boy Jasper sought to help has disappeared, Owen Archer convinces the archbishop that he must go in search of the boy. His lost scrip seems to hold the key to the double tragedy, but his disappearance leaves troubling questions: did he flee in fear? Or was he abducted? On the cusp of this new mystery, Owen accepts Jasper’s offer to accompany him to the boy’s home in the countryside, where they learn that a valuable cross has gone missing. A devastating fire and another drowning force Owen to make impossible choices, endangering not only himself, but the two innocents he fights to protect. The bond between fathers and sons proves strong, even between those not linked by blood.

As the millions of fans of Like Water for Chocolate know, Laura Esquivel is a romanticist whose novels explore the power of love and the truths of the human heart. She returns to those themes in Swift as Desire, the story of a loving and passionate man who has the gift of bringing happiness to everyone except his own wife. The hero of this novel is Júbilo Chi, a telegraph operator who is born with the ability to “hear” people’s true feelings and respond to their most intimate, unspoken desires. His life changes forever the day he falls deeply and irrevocably in love with Lucha, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy family. She believes money is necessary to insure happiness, while for Júbilo, who is poor, love and desire are more important than possessions. But their passion for each other enables them to build a happy life together -- until their idyll is shattered by a terrible event that drives them bitterly apart. Only years later, as Júbilo lies dying, is his daughter able to unravel the mystery behind her parents’ long estrangement and bring about a surprising reconciliation.

La principessa Ciri è l'unica che riesce a fuggire ma, all'improvviso, un cavaliere nemico le si para davanti e avanza minaccioso, brandendo un pugnale insanguinato... Ciri non ricorda cosa sia successo.

Una ragazzina morta per overdose; una giornalista assassinata mentre indaga su alcune cave di marmo a Carrara; la lotta continua tra la mafia albanese e Cosa Nostra per il controllo del territorio in Toscana. Il capo della Squadra Mobile di Firenze, Michele Ferrara, scopre ben presto che questi episodi, in apparenza senza legame tra loro, fanno parte di un'unica trama di violenza che lo riguarda da vicino: il suo migliore amico, il libraio Massimo Verga, è scomparso in circostanze misteriose ed è ricercato per un omicidio commesso in Versilia. Michele Giuttari trascina il lettore in un'indagine incredibile che ha però il sapore della realtà. Un perfetto meccanismo narrativo di colpi di scena in cui tutto si ricompone in un quadro coerente, con una galleria di personaggi indimenticabili.

A finely crafted epic and literary monstrosity from the seventeenth-century "poet of the marvelous": the harrowing account, in four bloody cantos, of King Herod and his campaign to murder the male infants of his kingdom to prevent the loss of his throne to the prophesied King of the Jews. The book starts in the pits of Hell, where the Devil stokes the flames of Herod's paranoid bloodlust in his troubled sleep, and concludes in the heights of Heaven where the "unarmed champions" march on to eternal glory. In between is an account of physical and political brutality that unfortunately holds too clear a mirror to world events today. The Massacre of the Innocents describes unbelievable cruelty while championing the nobility of suffering, all brilliantly translated and presented in ottava rima. Italian poet and adventurer Giambattista Marino (1569-1625) was deemed "the king of his age," and his very name came to define the style of an epoch: marinismo, a shorthand summation of the bizarre inventiveness and ornate excesses of Baroque poetry. In and out of jail, and escaping an assassination attempt by a rival, Marino spent a good part of his life in Northern Italy and France before returning to his birthplace of Naples. His most famous work, L'Adone (Adonis), stands as one of the longest Italian epics ever written, and for two centuries was deemed a monstrous epitome of Baroque bad taste.
