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

Hannah is a Christian who documents her life as an abused wife who discovered that she has been demonized due to the misdeeds of her parents. After attending a Pentecostal church deliverance ministry, she discovers that her parents' part in the occult practice of Obeah had led to her suffering from a generational curse causing a harsh and negative impact on her life. The story documents real life drama as the writer tells of her encounter with the Pastor at the deliverance ministry which led to years of research and digging deeper into the spirit realm. Hannah narrates her painful and humiliating struggles whilst going through the deliverance process and how she learned to use the full arsenal of heavenly weaponry to receive and maintain her deliverance by keeping all the spiritual doors to Satan and his demons firmly closed.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW AND THE ECONOMIST Winner of the Natan Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award, and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award An authoritative and deeply personal narrative history of the State of Israel, by one of the most influential journalists writing about the Middle East today Not since Thomas L. Friedman’s groundbreaking From Beirut to Jerusalem has a book captured the essence and the beating heart of the Middle East as keenly and dynamically as My Promised Land. Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis. Ari Shavit draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family’s story, illuminating the pivotal moments of the Zionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts: both personal and national, both deeply human and of profound historical dimension. We meet Shavit’s great-grandfather, a British Zionist who in 1897 visited the Holy Land on a Thomas Cook tour and understood that it was the way of the future for his people; the idealist young farmer who bought land from his Arab neighbor in the 1920s to grow the Jaffa oranges that would create Palestine’s booming economy; the visionary youth group leader who, in the 1940s, transformed Masada from the neglected ruins of an extremist sect into a powerful symbol for Zionism; the Palestinian who as a young man in 1948 was driven with his family from his home during the expulsion from Lydda; the immigrant orphans of Europe’s Holocaust, who took on menial work and focused on raising their children to become the leaders of the new state; the pragmatic engineer who was instrumental in developing Israel’s nuclear program in the 1960s, in the only interview he ever gave; the zealous religious Zionists who started the settler movement in the 1970s; the dot-com entrepreneurs and young men and women behind Tel-Aviv’s booming club scene; and today’s architects of Israel’s foreign policy with Iran, whose nuclear threat looms ominously over the tiny country. As it examines the complexities and contradictions of the Israeli condition, My Promised Land asks difficult but important questions: Why did Israel come to be? How did it come to be? Can Israel survive? Culminating with an analysis of the issues and threats that Israel is currently facing, My Promised Land uses the defining events of the past to shed new light on the present. The result is a landmark portrait of a small, vibrant country living on the edge, whose identity and presence play a crucial role in today’s global political landscape. Praise for My Promised Land “This book will sweep you up in its narrative force and not let go of you until it is done. [Shavit’s] accomplishment is so unlikely, so total . . . that it makes you believe anything is possible, even, God help us, peace in the Middle East.”—Simon Schama, Financial Times “[A] must-read book.”—Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times “Important and powerful . . . the least tendentious book about Israel I have ever read.”—Leon Wieseltier, The New York Times Book Review “Spellbinding . . . Shavit’s prophetic voice carries lessons that all sides need to hear.”—The Economist “One of the most nuanced and challenging books written on Israel in years.”—The Wall Street Journal

Guardian Witch Book Four A dead body, black magic, and a vampire enforcer... Ari thought her biggest problem was deciding if she should move in with her vampire boyfriend, Andreas. That was before they found the dead body at the bottom of the Riverdale cliffs. And before she realized he'd been cursed by black magic. Just as she begins the murder investigation, the vampire rulers in Europe send an enforcer to make inquiries into the recent defeat of the Toronto vampire prince. While Andreas has taken responsibility for the brutal dictator’s death, there is much about the incident that he and Ari must keep to themselves—secrets the vampire elders would stop at nothing to learn. With threats of retaliation hanging over their heads, Ari moves into Andreas’s Victorian mansion—for safety’s sake—while the enforcer begins a campaign of terror. Ari is caught between competing dangers and challenges: black magic, a ghost, a missing Native American artifact…not to mention a new roommate…all while trying to stay alive… Keywords: treasure hunt, vampire, witch, strong heroine, fire witch, romantic elements, Urban Fantasy, paranormal suspense

Between 1946 and 1966a surge of violence in Colombia left 200,000 dead in one of the worst conflicts the western hemisphere has ever experienced. the first seven years of this little-studied period of terror, known as la Violencia, is the subject of Blood and Fire. Scholars have traditionally assumed that partisan politics drove La Violencia, but Mary Roldán challenges earlier assessments by providing a nuanced account of the political and cultural motives behind the fratricide. Although the author acknowledges that partisan animosities played an important role in the disintegration of peaceful discourse into violence, she argues that conventional political conflicts were intensified by other concerns. Through an analysis of the evolution of violence in Antioquia, which at the time was the wealthiest and most economically diverse region of Colombia, Roldán demonstrates how tensions between regional politicians and the weak central state, diverse forms of social prejudice, and processes of economic development combined to make violence a preferred mode of political action. Privatization of state violence into paramilitary units and the emergence of armed resistance movements exacted a horrible cost on Colombian civic life, and these processes continue to plague the country. Roldan’s reading of the historical events suggests that Antioquia’s experience of la Violencia was the culmination of a brand of internal colonialism in which regional identity formation based on assumptions of cultural superiority was used to justify violence against racial or ethnic "others" and as a pretext to seize land and natural resources. Blood and Fire demonstrates that, far from being a peculiarity of the Colombians, la Violencia was a logical product of capitalist development and state formation in the modern world. This is the first study to analyze intersections of ethnicity, geography, and class to explore the genesis of Colombian violence, and it has implications for the study of repression in many other nations.

2012 reiste der deutsch-amerikanische Journalist Michael Scott Moore nach Westafrika, um über Piraten zu recherchieren, denen in Hamburg der Prozess gemacht wurde. In Somalia wird er – bittere Ironie des Schicksals – selbst entführt und anschließend fast drei Jahre lang an verschiedenen Orten gefangen gehalten. Aber Moore bleibt stark, überlebt Gewalt, Hunger, Isolation und Terror durch IS und Al-Shabaab. Nach 977 Tagen und Zahlung von 1,6 Mio. Dollar Lösegeld kommt er frei. Dies ist die packende Schilderung seiner Entführung – eine mentale Achterbahnfahrt, aber auch eine brilliante Reportage mit Einblicken in eine unbekannte Welt. Moore schafft es, trotz seiner traumatischen Erlebnisse ein differenziertes Bild des Islam zu zeichnen und auch den Blick auf die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und religiösen Hintergründe seiner Entführung nicht zu verlieren.

What do images of the body, which recent poets and filmmakers have given us, tell us about ourselves, about the way we think and about the culture in which we live? In his new book A Body of Vision, R. Bruce Elder situates contemporary poetic and cinematic body images in their cultural context. Elder examines how recent artists have tried to recognize and to convey primordial forms of experiences. He proposes the daring thesis that in their efforts to do so, artists have resorted to gnostic models of consciousness. He argues that the attempt to convey these primordial modes of awareness demands a different conception of artistic meaning from any of those that currently dominate contemporary critical discussion. By reworking theories and speech in highly original ways, Elder formulates this new conception. The works of Brakhage, Artaud, Schneeman, Cohen and others lie naked under Elder’s razor-sharp dissecting knife and he exposes the essence of their work, cutting deeply into the themes and theses from which the works are derived. His remarks on the gaps in contemporary critical practices will likely become the focus of much debate.

In Days of Fire, Peter Baker, Chief White House Correspondent for The New York Times, takes us on a gripping and intimate journey through the eight years of the Bush and Cheney administration in a tour-de-force narrative of a dramatic and controversial presidency. Theirs was the most captivating American political partnership since Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger: a bold and untested president and his seasoned, relentless vice president. Confronted by one crisis after another, they struggled to protect the country, remake the world, and define their own relationship along the way. In Days of Fire, Peter Baker chronicles the history of the most consequential presidency in modern times through the prism of its two most compelling characters, capturing the elusive and shifting alliance of George Walker Bush and Richard Bruce Cheney as no historian has done before. He brings to life with in-the-room immediacy all the drama of an era marked by devastating terror attacks, the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, and financial collapse. The real story of Bush and Cheney is a far more fascinating tale than the familiar suspicion that Cheney was the power behind the throne. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with key players, and thousands of pages of never-released notes, memos, and other internal documents, Baker paints a riveting portrait of a partnership that evolved dramatically over time, from the early days when Bush leaned on Cheney, making him the most influential vice president in history, to their final hours, when the two had grown so far apart they were clashing in the West Wing. Together and separately, they were tested as no other president and vice president have been, first on a bright September morning, an unforgettable “day of fire” just months into the presidency, and on countless days of fire over the course of eight tumultuous years. Days of Fire is a monumental and definitive work that will rank with the best of presidential histories. As absorbing as a thriller, it is eye-opening and essential reading.
