1950’s. In a small isolated Greek provincial town in post-Civil War Greece a closely-knit group of young friends - Melina, Sarantos, Iakovos, Sofia, Mary, Urania and Paulina - will discover that behind the curtain of strict morality and social righteousness their fellow villagers’ passions are boiling over and there are hidden secrets. As they grow older the young protagonists will pass from innocence to an awakening of the flesh with these sexual experiences indelibly marking their lives. They come to realise that sex is not only pleasure but hides numerous disappointments and pitfalls when games of sensuality also involve the heart. Shattered dreams, abandonment, exploitation and callousness lie ahead for the newly-initiated youths and girls as they are called on to handle each new situation according to their character and beliefs. Will they be able to overcome unforeseen obstacles in their struggle or will they be swept away by what appears to be written for each of them by Fate?

They escaped planetary annihilation, helped end a centuries old civil war, and joined a defeated militia to their cause. Terik Donato and Melina Beetary’s chances of bringing down the oppressive Fokot army were prospering until a cunning betrayal and a lone shot ripped apart their coalition. But as relics of the past begin to appear, transforming despair into determination, Terik and Melina now have a plan to engage the Fokot in all-out war. To stand a fighting chance they will need to rely on the only thing they have left: their resolve. The hardest task Terik and Melina must face is letting go – of each other, of their past, and any chance of saving Garett Soness. Because all fates lead to the planet Opus, and its caretakers, the last Azonka Mah, who may be the key to the Sacramento crew getting home. It may also be the key to many of Terik’s questions, as well as the key to Warlord Favan’s endgame, ultimately positioning Opus to be either the crux of their triumph or the catalyst of their defeat. All questions will be answered in this final volume of The Dawn Cluster.

The sequel to Through Wolf's Eyes and Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart Smart like a human. Smart like a wolf. Better yet, smart like both. With Through Wolf's Eyes and Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart, Jane Lindskold introduced us to young Firekeeper, one of the most appealing heroines in modern fantasy. Raised far from humans by smart, language-using wolves, then brought back to the court of Hawk Haven, Firekeeper has had to learn to cope with human society. And as it turns out, for one raised amidst intelligent social carnivores, the intrigues of the human pack aren't all that unfamiliar. Now Melina Shield, the beautiful, unscrupulous, and thoroughly discredited sorceress whose power-hungry intrigues have already made so much trouble for Firekeeper, is once again using her power to cloud men's minds. She has induced the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. This is bad news all round. It's particularly bad news for Firekeeper. Melina has never abandoned her schemes to gain power through the use of forbidden ancient sorcery. And the leaders of the royal beasts who watch over this world have given Firekeeper -- and her intelligent wolf companion, Blind Seer -- the responsibility of stopping her.

Die Briefe Franz Kafkas an seine Verlobte Felice Bauer zählen zu den persönlichsten Dokumenten dieses Autors. Die Neuedition basiert auf der Kritischen Ausgabe sämtlicher Briefe Kafkas. Am 13. August 1912 lernte Franz Kafka im Haus seines Freundes Max Brod die Berliner Stenotypistin Felice Bauer kennen. Wenige Wochen später setzt ein reger Briefverkehr zwischen Prag und Berlin ein, der im Briefwerk Kafkas seinesgleichen sucht. Ihre Gegenbriefe sind nicht überliefert, aber über 500 Briefe und Postkarten Kafkas an Felice Bauer, die von einem anfänglich zögerlichen, sich dann aber rasch intensivierenden Austausch zwischen den beiden Liebenden zeugen, von ihrem Ringen um eine gemeinsame Zukunft, vom Scheitern der ersten und der erneuten Verlobung und dem endgültigen Abbruch der Beziehung Ende 1917. Im Rahmen der Kritischen Ausgabe Franz Kafkas sind diese Briefe von Hans-Gerd Koch neu ediert und erstmals ausführlich kommentiert worden. In dieser Fassung erscheinen sie nun zum ersten Mal als eigenständige Edition.
