Being a witch isn't for sissies . . . Contemporary witch Cara Augustine is wanted by the Portalkind police. She broke a major covenant when she accidently made a werewolf her witch's familiar. That crime is considered enslaving a human--and the punishment is death. But even on the run as a fugitive, she quickly learns a Synemancer's life is never simple. Throughout her journey, she has to contend with fending off the advances of three supernatural beings--Nephilim who has just learned he's a powerful combination of half-angel and half-witch, a treacherous and deranged French werewolf who wants to enslave her, and, finally, the darkly handsome, formidable Nightkind who is determined to marry her. Each male has his own reasons for wanting to possess Cara, body and soul. And nothing will stop them from pursuing her. While escaping the Portalkind police, Cara and her companions stumble into another dimension and find themselves in a strange Garden of Eden. But they quickly discover that this dangerous world, filled with creatures that are both deadly and beautiful, is no paradise. Will Cara ever find her way home? And if she does, will it only be to face her execution for a crime she didn't mean to commit?

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

«Es ist 2001 in New York. Wir befinden uns in der Flaute zwischen dem Platzen der Dotcom-Blase und den schrecklichen Ereignissen des 11. September. Das Web 1.0 leidet unter pubertären Angstzuständen, Googles Börsengang steht noch bevor, aber es herrscht kein Mangel an Schwindlern, die darauf aus sind, sich ein Stück vom Rest des Kuchens abzuschneiden. Maxine Tarnow hat eine nette kleine Betrugsermittlungsagentur auf der Upper West Side, früher mal mit staatlicher Lizenz, doch die ist ihr entzogen worden. Was sich als Segen erwies, denn nun kann sie eine Beretta mit sich herumtragen, Kontakte mit zwielichtigen Gestalten pflegen und sich in fremde Bankkonten hacken. Im Übrigen führt sie das Leben einer typischen berufstätigen Mutter – zwei Jungen in der Grundschule, ungeklärter Beziehungsstatus mit ihrem Quasi-Semi-Exmann Horst, alles ganz normal –, bis sie sich für die Finanzen einer Computer-Sicherheitsfirma sowie deren nerdigen, milliardenschweren Vorstandsvorsitzenden interessiert, worauf die Ereignisse sich in die U-Bahn stürzen und unter Auslassung mehrerer Haltestellen ins Zentrum des Geschehens rasen. Bald macht Maxine die Bekanntschaft eines Drogenschmugglers mit einer Art-déco-Yacht, eines professionellen, von Adolf Hitlers Aftershave besessenen Riechers sowie eines neoliberalen Geldeintreibers mit Schuhproblemen. Und mit anderen Schurken, von denen einige seltsamerweise mit einem Mal tot sind. Werden die Übeltäter entlarvt oder gar – unvorstellbar! – verknackt? Wird Maxine die Pistole aus der Handtasche nehmen müssen? Werden sie und Horst wieder zusammenfinden? Wird Jerry Seinfeld einen Gastauftritt haben? Werden die irdischen und die karmischen Konten ausgeglichen? Tja, wer will das schon wissen?» Thomas Pynchon

A lone policewoman disarms a knife-wielding schizophrenic; two officers drag a woman from a railway line seconds before an express train roars past; an undercover cop clings onto the bonnet of a drug-dealer's car as it speeds through a busy town centre. These are just some of the ways Britain's police officers are daily called upon to demonstrate bravery in the line of duty when even the most routine call can turn into a life-or-death situation and split-second judgements can make all the difference. Sometimes officers make the ultimate sacrifice in fulfilling their duty. When PC Bill Parker was swept to his death by floodwaters in Cumbria in 2009, he had been working to save stranded motorists from the same fate. This thrilling collection of first-person accounts of true courage celebrates the sustained bravery and presence of mind routinely displayed by so many officers in England, Wales and Scotland. The stories also reveal an insider's view of the culture, training and techniques police officers use in carrying out their duties.

The sequel to Agenda 21—which Brad Thor called “a brilliantly written, exhilarating, pulse-pounding adventure”—from #1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck. It was once named America, but now it is just “the Republic.” Following the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, the once-proud people of America have become obedient residents who live in barren, brutal Compounds and serve the autocratic, merciless Authorities. Citizens mainly keep their heads down and their mouths shut—but Emmeline is different. When the Authorities took her mother away, she started questioning the world around her. What happened to her mom? Why is everyone confined to grim living spaces and made to eat the same food cubes every day? Why was her own baby taken from her to be raised in the Children’s Village? And are those who got away during the Relocations—the so-called shadow people—merely a rumor? When Emmeline’s questions lead to the realization that she will never see her child again, she decides to escape the Compound. Fleeing the armed enforcers of the Earth Protection Agency, and facing the unknown for the first time in their lives, Emmeline and her partner David run into the shadows in the desperate hope of finding something they’d only heard stories about from those who’d lived before the Relocations: freedom.
