“Vasárnap ne lopj, ne verj meg senkit, mert hat nap mindenre elegendő.”
(Rejtő Jenő)


Ian Morgan Cron - Suzanne Stabile - Úton ​önmagunkhoz

Az enneagram ősi személyiségtipológiai rendszer, amely hátborzongató pontossággal írja le, milyenek vagyunk és hogyan működünk, melyek az erősségeink és a gyengéink, milyen a típusunk érett és kiteljesedett, illetve kevésbé érett formája, és mit tehetünk azért, hogy legjobb önmagunkká, bölcsebbé és együtt érzőbbé váljunk. A könyv sok történettel, humorral és gyakorlatias megközelítéssel mutatja be az enneagram kilenc típusát és a keresztény spiritualitással való összefüggését.

Richard Rohr - Breathing ​Under Water
We ​are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction—from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin.

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Éjféli ​gyönyörök
A ​nagyrészt görög származású Sötét Vadászok körében nem örvend nagy népszerűségnek a nemesi származására módfelett büszke római - Valerius. Amikor a férfi találkozik a pimasz és csábító Tabitha Devereaux-val, aki nem más, mint a volt Sötét Vadász, Kyrian sógora, Val halálos ellensége, kapcsolatuk azonnal igen hevessé válik. A nőnek egyáltalán nem áll szándékában komolyan venni őt. Amit Tabitha azonban igen komolyan művel, az a vámpírvadászat és a gyilkolás. Mindkettejüknek hamarosan szembe kell nézniük a legveszedelmesebb démonnal. A végső győzelemért Valnak fel kell adnia büszkeségét és meg kell tanulnia bíznia, hogy megvédelmezhesse Kyriant, azt a férfit, akit gyűlöl és azt a nőt, aki az őrületbe kergeti.

David K Clark - The ​Pantheism of Alan Watts
David ​Clark's Summary and critique of Alan Watts' world view are instructive. Just as many people (and perhaps the culture as a whole) have moved away from complete confidence in human reason to a more intuitive approach to reality, so Watts abandoned Christianity in favor of a world view which finally eliminates conceptual thought. This study of Alan Watts provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the general world view of pantheism and to examine its implications for daily living.

Brad Steiger - Real ​Monsters, Gruesome Critters, and Beasts from the Darkside
Spotlighting ​news articles, historical accounts, and firstperson interviews, this chronicle of human interactions with monsters will convince even the most hardened skeptic of the existence of the bogeyman, bigfoot, werewolves, and swamp creatures. Offering an array of wild reports—from the police officer who begrudgingly responded to a call about a longhaired woman flying over a suburban neighborhood only to find himself calling for backup when she attacked his patrol car to the motorist whose headlights illuminated a sevenfoot tall, wolflike creature that stood on its hind legs—this historical record highlights scary and unbelievable narratives. From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

Josephine Angelini - Dreamless
Dreamless ​continues the story of Helen Hamilton, a shy girl living on Nantucket Island whose desire for an ordinary life was thwarted when she discovered she is a Scion, a descendant of a Greek god and a mortal. Each Scion has a power, and Helen’s is the ability to travel to Hades. Helen is determined to use her talent to stop a war amongst the gods and change her destiny, which is to live a life patterned after that of the tragic Helen of Troy. But her quest may cost her Lucas Delios, the boy she loves.

Jack Vance - Suldrun's ​Garden
The ​Elder Isles, located in what is now the Bay of Biscay off the the coast of Old Gaul, are made up of ten contending kingdoms, all vying with each other for control. At the centre of much of the intrigue is Casmir, the ruthless and ambitious king of Lyonnesse. His beautiful but otherworldly daughter, Suldrun, is part of his plans. He intends to cement an alliance or two by marrying her well. But Suldrun is as determined as he and defies him. Casmir coldly confines her to the overgrown garden that she loves to frequent, and it is here that meets her love and her tragedy unfolds. Political intrigue, magic, war, adventure and romance are interwoven in a rich and sweeping tale set in a brilliantly realized fabled land.

Josephine Angelini - Göttlich ​verliebt
Ein ​zweiter Trojanischer Krieg steht unmittelbar bevor! Helen, Lucas und Orion müssen verhindern, dass die sterbliche Welt in die Hände der olympischen Götter fällt. Doch das Verlangen der Götter nach einem neuen Trojanischen Krieg wird immer größer. Zugleich wächst Helens Macht, aber auch das Misstrauen ihrer Freunde. Schließlich offenbart das Orakel, dass ein gefährlicher Tyrann unter ihnen lauert, der einen Keil zwischen sie treiben will – alle Zeichen deuten auf Orion. Und was wird aus Helens ganz persönlichem Kampf um die Liebe zu Lucas?

Kai Meyer - Arcadia ​Falls

Even so, Rosa and her boyfriend, rival leader Alessandro Carnevare, refuse to give up on their love for each other. On the run from their adversaries and searching for answers, Rosa and Alessandro begin to unravel the secret behind the conspiracy to keep them apart: an ancient prophecy that predicted the destruction of all Arcadia. As the clock ticks down to their own destruction, it's a race against time for the young lovers as they evade murderers, track down clues, and avoid a showdown with the man who wants them dead. The pair must find out the truth behind Arcadia once and for all—but will it be the key to unlocking their freedom and future together, or the final step in bringing them to their knees?

Karin Tidbeck - Listen
A ​strange people have appeared out of nowhere. Their speech is impossible to understand for most human beings; their agenda, they say, is to colonize the "right place". The interpreter Mika accompanies one of their ambassadors to the little moon Kiruna. Here, celestial bodies play havoc with sound, and reality may not be what it appears. (A sequel to SING)

Karin Tidbeck - Sing
The ​biologist Petr explores the strange colony of Kiruna and meets the village outcast Aino, who seduces him unknowingly with her intoxicating singing voice. He finds comfort in her unusual way of life but soon discovers that a symbiotic relationship can be a blessing or a curse.

Karin Tidbeck - Sobí ​hora
Brilantní ​a výjimečný autorský objev na poli fantasy s prvky severské mytologie právem recenzenty přirovnávaný k Le Guinové, Kafkovi nebo Borgesovi. Pozoruhodná sbírka třinácti povídek, tak zvláštních, že je velmi obtížné vypudit je z mysli. Zasahují do světa fantasy, magického realismu, science fiction i severských lidových pověstí s imaginárními bytostmi. Některé z těchto příběhů jsou značně znepokojivé, ale zároveň humorné a neuvěřitelně zvláštní. Výrazný autorský rukopis Karin Tidbeckové má schopnost vyvolat v nás intenzivní pocit odcizení vůči světu, o němž jsme se domnívali, že ho známe, a nasměrovat k trhlině v něm, z níž se může vynořovat leccos nepředstavitelného. Sobí hora obsahuje texty přeložené ze švédštiny a publikované původně v knize Kdo je Arvid Pekon?, i nové povídky – napsané buď přímo v angličtině, nebo samotnou autorkou přeložené ze švédštiny. Některé z nich již samostatně vyšly v letech 2010 až 2012 v různých amerických publikacích.

Martin Cruz Smith - Nightwing
As ​darkness gathers, the sky is filled with frantic motion and maddening murmurs. In an effort to end the world, an unhappy, aging Native American shaman invokes the Hopi god of death. Those around him remain sceptical, dismissing him as crazy old man. Then they discover his mutilated, bloody body, and soon, other similarly disfigured bodies begin to appear. Horses, sheep, cattle - no living thing is safe. But what is causing the horrible deaths? Deputy Sheriff Duran is called back to the reservation to investigate. Immediately, Duran recognises the significance of the shaman's spell and, with the help of two scientists, he works to combat the supernatural scourge - before there's nothing left to save.

Jack Vance - The ​Green Pearl
When ​magic ruled and kings were strong... South of Eire and west of Gaul was the land of the Elder Isles, a mystical place of fairy shees, valiant knights, and the powerful magic of sorcerers living and forgotten. Now, as Aillas of Troicinet and Casimir of Lyonesse parry and feint in a duel of wits, the mysterious aura of the Green Pearl enters their souls. Its menas are subtle, but its effects are great, and as the Kings of Elder ready their swords, even the worlds of the immortals tremble...

Selma Lagerlöf - A ​halál kocsisa
Szilveszter ​este, éjfél felé. Egy David Holm nevű korhely tüdővérzéssel fekszik a komor, fagyos templomkertben. Még nem tudja, nem is sejti, micsoda borzalmas feladat vár rá az új esztendőben: neki kell felváltania a Halál kocsisát, aki az óévben ezt a hálátlan tisztet betöltötte... Elfojtott romantikus szenvedély, misztika, erkölcsi példázat, bolygó kísértetek, a jó és a rossz küzdelme - minden megvan a Nobel-díjas Selma Lagerlöf 1912-ben megjelent könyvében, ami egy vérbeli svéd regényhez szükséges...és még több is, de erről beszéljen maga az írás.

Száz Pál - Fűje ​sarjad mezőknek
Száz ​Pál a füveskönyvek földi paradicsomkertjébe invitál: a legendamesék birodalmába, az átváltozások mozgalmas terepére, a nyelv és a retorika természetes kincsesházába. Megmutatja, mire képes az emberi elme a maga korlátai között, ha ki akarja betűzni az Úristen könyvét, azaz ki szeretné olvasni a földi világot, érteni szeretné a teremtést. Olyan ábécét, nyelvet ad a kezünkbe, mely természetes hangon képes megszólaltatni a létezés eredendő csodáját és lappangó rettenetét, a történelmi kataklizmák ember- és erkölcspróbáló erejét, lefőzni az ideológiák ködösítő, mérgező párlatait, felmutatni az emlékezés stratégiáit és korlátait, a kikezdhetetlen hit magasztosságát vagy épp önáltató tragikumát.

Maria Dahvana Headley - Queen ​of Kings
There’s ​more than one path to immortality… QUEEN OF KINGS Maria Dahvana Headley A thrilling, chilling reimagining of the story of the most famous woman in history. Once there was a queen of Egypt…a queen who became through magic something else… The year is 30 BC. Octavian Caesar and his massed legions are poised to enter Alexandria. A messenger informs Egypt’s queen, Cleopatra, that her beloved Mark Antony has died by his own hand. Desperate to save her kingdom, resurrect her husband and protect all she holds dear, Cleopatra turns to the gods for help. Ignoring the warnings of those around her, she summons Sekhmet, goddess of death and destruction, and strikes a mortal bargain. And not even the wisest of Egypt’s scholar could have predicted what would follow… For, in return for Antony’s soul, Sekhmet demands something in return: Cleopatra herself. And so Egypt’s queen is possessed. She becomes an immortal, shape-shifting, not-quite-human manifestation of a deity who seeks to destroy the world. Fighting to preserve something of her humanity, Cleopatra pursues Octavian back to Rome: she desires revenge, she yearns for her children…and she craves human blood. It is a journey that will take her from the tombs of the Pharaohs to the great amphitheatres of imperial Rome and on, to Hell itself where, it seems, the fate of the world will finally be decided. Blending authentic historical fiction and the darkest of fantasy, Queen of Kings is a spectacular and spellbinding feat of the imagination that fans of Neil Gaiman, Diana Gabaldon, George R.R. Martin, Patricia Briggs, Philippa Gregory, and Ridley Scott's Gladiator won’t want to miss.

Maria Dahvana Headley - The ​Mere Wife
From ​the perspective of those who live in Herot Hall, the suburb is a paradise. Picket fences divide buildings―high and gabled―and the community is entirely self-sustaining. Each house has its own fireplace, each fireplace is fitted with a container of lighter fluid, and outside―in lawns and on playgrounds―wildflowers seed themselves in neat rows. But for those who live surreptitiously along Herot Hall’s periphery, the subdivision is a fortress guarded by an intense network of gates, surveillance cameras, and motion-activated lights. For Willa, the wife of Roger Herot (heir of Herot Hall), life moves at a charmingly slow pace. She flits between mommy groups, playdates, cocktail hour, and dinner parties, always with her son, Dylan, in tow. Meanwhile, in a cave in the mountains just beyond the limits of Herot Hall lives Gren, short for Grendel, as well as his mother, Dana, a former soldier who gave birth as if by chance. Dana didn’t want Gren, didn’t plan Gren, and doesn’t know how she got Gren, but when she returned from war, there he was. When Gren, unaware of the borders erected to keep him at bay, ventures into Herot Hall and runs off with Dylan, Dana’s and Willa’s worlds collide.

Paul Harrison - Elements ​of Pantheism
Do ​you feel a deep sense of belonging and wonder in a forest or by the ocean? Are you speechless with awe when you see the Milky Way strewn with stars? Do you find it hard to conceive of a divinity separate from the beauty of nature or the power of the universe? Then you are probably a pantheist. The heart of Pantheism is reverence for Nature and the Universe. It offers a vibrant alternative to theism and atheism, with a joyful and accepting approach to life on this earth. Pantheism dates back to the very first Greek philosophers, and was the religious viewpoint of many famous thinkers and artists, including Marcus Aurelius, Spinoza, Wordsworth, Whitman, Emerson, Thoreau, Einstein, and Frank Lloyd Wright. The dominant religious approach of the nineteenth century, pantheism is seeing a modern revival as the underlying world view of the environmental movement, of leading scientists, and of nature-revering paganism. This accessible, clear and authoritative handbook is the only available introduction to the history, theory and practice of Pantheism.

Silvia Moreno-Garcia - Gods ​of Jade and Shadow
The ​Jazz Age is in full swing, but Casiopea Tun is too busy cleaning the floors of her wealthy grandfather’s house to listen to any fast tunes. Nevertheless, she dreams of a life far from her dusty small town in southern Mexico. A life she can call her own. Yet this new life seems as distant as the stars, until the day she finds a curious wooden box in her grandfather’s room. She opens it—and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan god of death, who requests her help in recovering his throne from his treacherous brother. Failure will mean Casiopea’s demise, but success could make her dreams come true. In the company of the strangely alluring god and armed with her wits, Casiopea begins an adventure that will take her on a cross-country odyssey, from the jungles of Yucatán to the bright lights of Mexico City—and deep into the darkness of the Mayan underworld.

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Fantasy ​Lover
Being ​trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day. As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and into the world. She taught me to love again. But I wasn't born to know love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone. As an ancient Greek general, I had long ago accepted my sentence. Yet now I have found Grace-- the one thing my wounded heart cannot survive without. Sure, love can heal all wounds, but can it break a two-thousand-year-old curse?

Adrienne Woods - Light
Mr. ​Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da…..Seventeen year old Chastity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children’s story parents tell their children to get them to sleep.

A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep. Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking truth of her heritage – she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams. However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares. Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is going to discover just how different they can be.

Adrienne Young - Das ​Herz der Kämpferin
Sie ​ist zur Kämpferin erzogen worden, und als Tochter des Clan-Führers würde die 17-jährige Eelyn jederzeit ihr Leben für ihre Familie und ihre Freunde geben. Während einer Schlacht gegen die verfeindeten Riki glaubt sie zu träumen. Denn Eelyn sieht ihren totgeglaubten Bruder – wie er an der Seite eines kühnen Riki kämpft. Weder ein Pfeil im Arm noch ein Schwerthieb könnte Eelyn so schwer treffen wie der Verrat ihres Bruders. Sie selbst würde sich niemals mit dem Feind verbünden. Auch nicht wenn sie sich verliebt. Und selbst dann nicht wenn es den Untergang der Clans bedeutet. Oder?

Adrienne Young - Después ​del deshielo
Eelyn, ​quien criada para ser una guerrera, es una joven que lucha junto con sus compañeros de clan en una disputa ancestral contra el clan de los Riki.

Enfrentada a la traición de su hermano, tiene que pasar el invierno en las montañas con los Riki, en una aldea donde cada vecino es un enemigo y cada herida de batalla, una herida probablemente causada por ella. Pero cuando la aldea Riki es asaltada por un clan despiadado y supuestamente legendario, Eelyn se siente más desesperada por regresar con su querida familia. No le queda otra alternativa que confiar en Fiske, el amigo de su hermano, que la considera una amenaza. Tienen que hacer algo imposible: unir a los dos clanes para pelear juntos o correr el riesgo de que los asesinen uno por uno. Motivada por el amor a su clan y su creciente amor por Fiske, Eelyn debe enfrentar su propia definición de lealtad y de familia mientras se arriesga a poner su confianza en la gente que odió durante toda su vida.

Adrienne Young - Sky ​in the Deep
OND ​ELDR. BREATHE FIRE. Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago. Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family. She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.

Imre Madách - İnsanın ​trajedisi
Taşralı ​bir Macar soylusu l859 yılının l7 şubatında eline tüy kalemini alıp, insanın ve insanlığın varlığının anlamını, savaşımları, acıları, başarıları ve yenilgileriyle tüm tarihinin anlamını, amacını, ta yaradılıştan başlayarak sisli ufuklarda kaybolan uzak geleceğe değin başından sonuna kadar düşünerek, akıllara durgunluk verecek bir tempoyla, bir yıldan biraz fazla bir süre içinde, tam onyedi tüy kalemi eskiterek bu manzum dramı yazdı. 1860 yılının 26 martında macar edebiyatının en tanınmış ve aynı zamanda en tartışmalı yapıtlarından biri, "İnsanın Trajedisi" doğdu. Bu yapıtı kimileri anlamsız, saçma bulur; kimileri önemi açısından Goethe ve Dante'nin büyük manzum dramlarına benzetir; kimilerine göre ise her iki görüşte de bir ölçüde gerçek payı vardır. Dramın mekânı dünyamız, hatta bütün kâinattır. Konusu insanlığın tarihi. Zamanı ise geçmiş ve gelecek. Dramın başında, "Büyük eser bitti, tamam ; dönüyor çarklar dinleniyor yaradan" sözleriyle yaradılışın sona erdiğini duyuran Rab, övgüler düzen meleklerinin şenliklerini seyrediyor. Bu havaya katılmayan tek biri var, o da İblis. Rabbın zıddı, inkârın ruhu olan şeytan, Tanrının eserinin mükemmellikten ne kadar uzak olduğunu kanıtlamak için, kendi payına düşenin, kendi hakkının, ışığa karşı gölgenin de var olması hakkının ona verilmesini ister ve Adem ile Havvayı aldatmakta kullanacağı bir karış toprakla cennetin yasaklanmış iki ağacını Tanrıdan alır. Madách "İnsanın Trajedisi" ni bitirirken, sonuç çıkarmayı da ihmal etmiyor. Son sahnede Tanrının, insanın mücadelesinin anlamını anlatan sözlerini sonuç olarak yorumlayabiliriz. Ama okuyucunun çıkaracağı sonuç gene de yazarınkinden farklı olabilir. Kaldı ki, Trajedi'nin son sahnesinin yorumu, yapıtın doğuşunun üstünden geçen 130 yılı aşkın bir süredir yazılmış yüzlerce, binlerce sayfalık yorumların ancak bir tanesidir.

Rachel Hauck - A ​menyasszonyi ruha
Négy ​menyasszony. Egy ruha. A hit, a megváltás és az örökéletű szerelem története. Charlotte-nak elegáns menyasszonyi ruha butikja van az alabamai Birminghamben. Különleges tehetsége van ahhoz, hogy menyasszonyokat öltöztessen fel a nagy napra. És ezt őszinte szenvedéllyel teszi. De közeledik a saját esküvőjének a napja, és mégsem találja a tökéletes ruhát..., és miért nem érzi biztosnak magát abban, hogy hozzá akar menni Timhez? Ekkor fedez fel egy régi menyasszonyi ruhát az egyik birtokon rendezett jótékonysági árverésen egy ütött-kopott ládában. A ruha vadonatújnak látszik, csupa csillogó selyem és gyöngy, kézzel varrt, a fazonja időtálló. De honnan származik? Ki viselte? Ki forrasztotta le a zárat, ki dugta egy katona dögcéduláját a kis erszénybe, ami mellette feküdt? Ki hagyta a pincében egy tízéves kislány számára? És ki a lila mellényes titokzatos férfi, aki azt állítja, hogy a ruhát "megváltották"? Charlotte a ruha történetét kutatja, keresi, ki lehet az új menyasszony, aki viselhetné, és eleinte a kialvóban lévő szerelmi életéről akarja ezzel elterelni a figyelmét. De a történet önálló életet kel, ahogy megismeri a lányokat, akik a ruhát viselték. 1912-ből Emilyt. 1939-ből Mary Grace-t. 1968-ból Hillaryt. Mindhármuk története tele van ígéretekkel, fájdalommal és sorsszerűséggel. És mind valami páratlant osztanak meg, hiszen a gyönyörű százéves ruhába aranyszállal beleszőtték az igazságot Charlotte múltjáról, a bátorság és hit erejéről, az igaz szerelem megtalálásának örök szépségéről.
