Scarlett eleinte nem tudja, mihez kezdjen a hajdani színésznővel, aki minden pillanatban más vállalkozásba fog. Közben pedig feltűnik a láthatáron Eric, a lélegzetelállítóan helyes színész srác, és Scarlettet immár nem mentheti meg semmi más, csak a leleményessége.

Még Zakariás testvér sem. Mélyedj el a Árnyvadász Akadámiában megismert szereplők személyes történetében!

Cassandra Clare - Maureen Johnson - A ​Dumort Hotel bukása
A ​valaha előkelőnek számító Dumort Hotel Magnus Bane szeme láttára válik valami egészen mássá az 1970-es évek New Yorkjában. Ötven évvel azután, hogy a szálloda a jazzkorszakban hírnévre tett szert, a halhatatlan boszorkánymester tanúja lesz, hogyan hanyatlik ez a manhattani nevezetesség. Az egykor gyönyörű épületből csak düledező, bűzlő, élettelen romhalmaz maradt. A vámpírok ezt azonban cseppet sem bánják... "Azt kell mondjam, a Bane krónikák minden egyes novellája jobb és jobb. Cassie egyre jobban megszeretteti velem Magnust. A sorozat szórakoztató, zseniális, ráadásul mindig meg is nevettet. Mindezen felül ezt a történetet csodálatosan érzelmesnek is találtam, a végét olvasva egészen elszorult a szívem." - _Thania Stewart_

Maureen Johnson - 13 ​Little Blue Envelopes
Inside ​little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket. In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat. The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist. Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again? Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.

Maureen Johnson - The ​Key to the Golden Firebird
When ​Mike Gold has a heart attack and dies in his 1967 Firebird, the car sits in the family garage untouched for a year. May, Brooks, and Palmer Gold--all teenage girls in what May calls the "Tall, Blond, and Wonderful Family"--suffer from neglect as well when their mother goes to work overtime at the hospital to pay the bills. The three girls deal with their father's death in different ways: Brooks quits softball and starts drinking, Palmer ferociously focuses on pitching and TV, hiding her panic attacks from everyone, and May tries to keep the family together. As the family unravels, the Firebird endures. Palmer uses the back seat as a place to escape, Brooks takes it out for a spin when she's drunk (and gets arrested), and for the grand finale, the three girls take the battleship-sized car to Camden Yards to throw their father's ashes on the pitcher's mound. Fortunately, this is the act that allows the girls to start anew, like the phoenix rising.

Und plötzlich ist der Ripper hinter Rory her...
