The last-and most lethal-of his kind . . .
Wild, uncontrollable, and powerful, the lion-shifting Rakshasa were hunted down by vicious rival vampires who feared their dark, magical abilities. Somehow one survived, and now, after centuries of hiding, Tasmin Singh reemerges as fierce and fearless as ever at the door of the Lilim queen, seeking answers . . . and sanctuary.
The human best friend to a vampire queen, Bay Harper traded her quiet, comfortable life for a world filled with immortal assassins, warring werewolves . . . and this hauntingly sexy shifter. Only Bay’s gentle touch can subdue Tasmin’s inner demons, even as he brings out a passion and sensuality she never imagined she could feel. But when a bloody struggle threatens to tear them apart, can Bay risk everything on her faith in him-or will his dark side be stronger than even their all-consuming desire?
Rick Yancey - The 5th Wave
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
Rosner Árpád - Gyújts lámpát a holnapoknak
1939 óta él Angliában. Hivatásos könyvvizsgáló és adószakértő, versírásra csak éjjel van ideje. Számára a versírás "az anyanyelv közegéből kitépett, idegen nyelvek kényszerében lelkiségét féltő ember életszükséglete". Messze idegenben, a szürkülő anyanyelv magány-alkony lélekzaklatottságában a személyiség könnyen zúzódhat semmivé. Szerencsés az, akinek megadatott, hogy lelke gyötrelmeit versek anyanyelv-varázslatában vezethesse le, megóva így személyiségét felőrlődéstől, összetöréstől, neuraszténiától. Verseivel a költő beteg korunk valóságába behatolva, humanista állásfoglalással ítél és a múlt retteneteit idézve, figyelmeztet. A versek költői nyelvét nem a versforma - vagy rímbravúrok alakítják. Egy sok mindent látott ember tapasztalataiból levont következtetés, az életben levő folyamatok és dolgok lényegének megértésére való törekvés, őszinteség és a mindenkori haladást támogató világnézet, e bensőségesen átélt tartalmakat drámaian sűrítő, áttetsző szerkezet és tömör, képi kifejezés képviselik a versek esztétikumát. Rosner Árpád másodkötetes költő. Első kötete 1979-ben jelent meg Budapesten jó sikerrel, "Levágott ág" címmel. A mostani kötet az elmúlt 15 év termésének sokszínű, lírai hangulatú, és történelembölcseleti tartalmakat érintő verseiből készült válogatás, amelyből kirajzolódik a költő egyéni arculata.
Max Allan Collins - Jump Cut
They’re members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, an elite team of FBI profilers tasked with examining the nation’s most twisted criminal minds – and anticipating their next moves before they strike again… The BAU team is dispatched to Lawrence, Kansas, to investigate a series of fatal stabbings among the town’s homeless population. The victims have all been found freshly bathed, neatly groomed, and wearing new clothes. To profiler Jason Gideon, these look like carefully staged murders in isolated settings, fulfilling the sick fantasies of one or more Unknown Subjects. When the kidnapping of young heiress presents a second, seemingly unrelated crime for the BAU to help solve, Gideon deduces a sinister connection, despite the variance in MOs. The kidnap victim must be found – before she too is a player in the mind games of a pair of UnSubs who are inventing horrific new ways to kill.
Albert-László Barabási - Bursts
The bestselling author of Linked returns with a ground breaking new theory that will enthrall fans of The Tipping Point. Can we scientifically predict our future? It's a mystery that has nagged scientists for perhaps thousand of years. Now Albert-László Barabási-the award-winning author of the sleeper hit Linked- explains how the digital age has yielded a massive, previously unavailable data set that proves the daily pattern of human activity isn't random, it's bursty. We work and fight and play in short flourishes of activity followed by next to nothing. Compellingly illustrated with the account of a bloody medieval crusade in sixteenth-century Transylvania and the modern tale of a contemporary artist hunted by the FBI, Bursts reveals that we are far more predictable than we like to think.
Kerstin Gier - Dream a Little Dream
Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals. The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what's really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn't possibly know—unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute....

Robert Paul Weston - The Creature Department
It’s a tentacled, inventive, gooey, world in there. . . . Elliot Von Doppler and his friend Leslie think nothing ever happens in Bickleburgh, except inside the gleaming headquarters of DENKi-3000—the world’s eighth-largest electronics factory. Beneath the glass towers and glittering skywalks, there's a rambling old mansion from which all the company’s amazing inventions spring forth. And no one except Uncle Archie knows what’s behind the second-to-last door at the end of the hall. Until Elliot and Leslie are invited to take a glimpse inside. They find stooped, troll-like creatures with jutting jaws and broken teeth. Tiny winged things that sparkle as they fly. And huge, hulking, hairy nonhumans (with horns). It is unlike anything they’ve ever seen. But when Chuck Brickweather threatens to shut down the DENKi-3000 factory if a new product isn’t presented soon, the creatures know they are in danger. And when Uncle Archie vanishes, it’s up to Elliot, Leslie, and every one of the unusual, er, “employees” to create an invention so astonishing it will save the Creature Department.

Marina Warner - From the Beast to the Blonde
Entrancing, multi-layered and as wittily subversive as fairy tales themselves, this beautifully illustrated work explores and illuminates the unfolding history of the famous tales, the contexts in which they flourished, and the tellers themselves - from ancient sybils and old crones to Angela Carter and Disney. 'She is a terrific writer and an original scholar. This is a landmark book.' Victoria Glendinning, _Daily Telegraph_ 'Just like the tale-tellers she celebrates... she's a weaver of enchantments, each sentence a silken knot charming you further into her web of meanings.' Michele Roberts, _Independent on Sunday_ 'Consistently enlightening... this is a brilliant work: wise, witty and as magisterially omniscient as any Sybilline oracle.' Nicholas Tucker, _New Statesman and Society_ 'Open the book at almost any page and you will find something to fascinate you.' Noel Malcolm, _Guardian_

Elaine Babich - You Never Called Me Princess
Kaitlyn Simons has had enough of her father calling her “Chubs.” She hates the name, and she's beginning to hate him. To stop the name calling, she decides to go on a crash diet. A very strict and unhealthy diet. A diet that works all too well. After all, it’s easy to lose weight when you don’t eat, right? Kaitlyn quickly discovers that the rewards of being thin are fantastic. Boys in school take notice. Her popularity soars. Meanwhile, Kaitlyn restricts her diet even more. Unfortunately, Kaitlyn’s unhealthy weight loss falls under the radar since her family has other problems. Big problems, life-changing problems. But when Kaitlyn's weight loss reaches a critical phase, as her family rallies around her, Kaitlyn will discover that there's more to life than being popular and thin. But will this revelation come too late? Acclaim for the Novels of Elaine Babich: "Heartbreaking and Touching. A powerful story of a teenager's struggle with anorexia, told in a straight forward and powerful way, without talking down to the reader and without being overly sentimental. You Never Called Me Princess is an honest look at what could happen when a young girl decides to lose weight at all costs. Should be mandatory reading for any parent who suspects their child might have an eating disorder. I believe the novel will show the reader that there are answers to their problems, and that they are not alone. Highly recommended. An important novel." —J.R. Rain, author of Moon Dance and The Body Departed "An intriguing debut, and an excellent read. Gripping and touching, a story written from the heart. Elaine Babich has fashioned a story that many young girls could relate to. In the end we are left with a poignant glimpse into the beauty of family and the love of life and the wonder that connects us all." —Summer Lee, author of Angel Heart and Kindred Spirits "Elaine Babich has created such a vivid tale of teenage angst and redemption — one that will stay with me for a long time." —Aiden James, author of Cades Cove and Deadly Night "In Relatively Normal, author Elaine Babich weaves a compelling book of angst and illness in the believable, first-person voice of Kaitlyn Simmons, a fifteen-year-old girl from a dysfunctional family. Kaitlyn, who is only semi-recovered from a serious eating disorder, is diagnosed with serious epilepsy and other health issues. The heroine comes to terms with her disease as she adjusts to her medications, backslides into her eating disorder again, explores relationships with boyfriends (age-appropriate), and handles problems with a girl bully. Her coming-of-age story of self-discovery, acceptance of her imperfect body, and a surprise twist at the end will leave readers with a smile and hope for every teenage girl to overcome debilitating ED illness and difficult family issues. I loved this book and want to recommend it to teenage girls, especially. The heroine is likable, and one to whom YA readers will relate. High moral values, with exploration into body image and excellent life lessons, with no preachiness. Five stars!" —Eve Paludan, author of Letters from David
Alessandro Baricco - Ocean Sea
With Silk, his first novel to appear in English, Alessandro Baricco immediately proved himself to be a magical storyteller. With Ocean Sea, he has been acclaimed as the successor to Italo Calvino, and a major voice in modern literature. In Ocean Sea, Alessandro Baricco presents a hypnotizing postmodern fable of human malady--psychological, existential, erotic--and the sea as a means of deliverance. At the Almayer Inn, a remote shoreline hotel, an artist dips his brush in a cup of ocean water to paint a portrait of the sea. A scientist pens love letters to a woman he has yet to meet. An adulteress searches for relief from her proclivity to fall in love. And a sixteen-year-old girl seeks a cure from a mysterious condition which science has failed to remedy. When these people meet, their fates begin to interact as if by design. Enter a mighty tempest and a ghostly mariner with a thirst for vengeance, and the Inn becomes a place where destiny and desire battle for the upper hand. Playful, provocative, and ultimately profound, Ocean Sea is a novel of striking originality and wisdom.
