zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

This brand-new omnibus is the second in a series collecting Irene Radford's acclaimed Dragon novels. Volume I includes the complete trilogy of The Dragon Nimbus: The Glass Dragon, The Perfect Princess, and The Lonliest Magician Volume II includes the first two novels in The Dragon Nimbus History quartet: The Dragon's Touchstone and The Last Battlemage Volume III includes the last two novels in The Dragon Nimbus History quartet: The Renegade Dragon and The Wizard's Treasure The Dragon's Touchstone: Three hundred years before the time of The Glass Dragon, Coronnan is a kingdom at war with itself, magic is wild, and magicians uncontrolled, each working separately for his own goal. At the height of this age of chaos, the dragons decide to intervene, making their presence known to the mortals through the healer Myrilandel. The Last Battlemage: Nimbulan, the last Battlemage and the founder of the school for Communal Magic, is seeking to create a permanent protection for the kingdom of Coronnan, a spell-crafted border to keep enemies out. His search for the key to this magic leads him to terrifying discovery—the dragons, the guardians of magics, are in terrible danger. Want more Dragon novels? Look for The Star Gods trilogy and the new Children of the Dragon Nimbus series! A letter from the author, Irene Radford: Welcome to the world where dragons are real and magic works. If you are new to the Dragon Nimbus, pull up a chair and join us as we revel in tales that have touched my heart more than anything else I've written under any pen name. If you are returning after an absence, I am very happy to have you back. This is a world that began with a Christmas gift of a blown-glass dragon. The dragon sat proudly on the knick-knack shelf for several months, loved and admired, reluctantly dusted, and totally inert. Then one night at dinner, my son remarked, 'You know, Mom, I think dragons are born all dark, like that little pewter dragon, then they get more silvery as they grow up until they are as clear as glass.' The dragon came to life for me. Out of that chance remark came first one book, then three, five, seven, and finally ten. I built a career on these books and loved every minute of the process. These characters still live in my mind many years after they jumped into their stories and dragged me along with them. Many thanks to DAW Books and my editor Sheila Gilbert for reviving The Dragon Nimbus a lucky thirteen years after they first debuted. With these omnibus volumes, you can read about the dragons with crystal fur that directs your eye elsewhere yet defies you to look anywhere else. Wonderful dragons full of wit and wisdom. Magic abounds. Magicians and mundanes alike learn about their world and special life lessons as they explore dragon lore past and present. The books will be presented in the order in which they were written, and the order that makes the most sense of the entwined tales. So, sit back and enjoy with me. And may reading take you soaring with Dragons.

A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: 'Mrs Gregson to see you, sir.' The second: 'Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?' It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.

All 5 books in the popular Mind Dimensions series from a New York Times bestselling author, available for the first time in one convenient, discounted omnibus edition. Over 1500 pages of thrilling action, adventure, and unique mind powers. The Thought Readers (Mind Dimensions Book 1) Darren's had it easy his whole life. Finishing Harvard at eighteen, a lucrative job on Wall Street at twenty-one-all things are possible when you can cheat by stepping outside time. Thanks to his ability, he's a know-it-all, but what he doesn't know is how he's able to do what he does. That is, until he meets Mira and discovers her dangerous, hidden world. The Time Stopper (A Mind Dimensions Story Prequel) Mira can stop time, but she can't change anything. After her parents are murdered, she'll do anything to get revenge-even take on the Russian mob. The Thought Pushers (Mind Dimensions Book 2) Darren's life turned upside down when he met Mira. Now, as he races to uncover his own identity, he confronts new enemies-and realizes his unique powers might extend further than he ever imagined. The Enlightened (Mind Dimensions Book 3) Kidnapped, consciousness expanded-and that's just the start of Darren's day. As a new danger comes to light, he has one chance to save a loved one's life and avenge the wrongs of decades past. Some crimes can never be forgiven. The Elders (Mind Dimensions Book 4) Darren's new powers are unpredictable, but they're precisely what he needs to save everyone he loves. The Elders can teach him what he needs to know, but their help comes at a price. Ultimately, Darren has to make a choice. What is he willing to sacrifice for those he loves? Over 500 5-star reviews across individual books. Here's what readers are saying: • 'An utterly fantastic portrayal of the Sci-Fi psychic powers trope' • 'The characters grab your heart and you find yourself rooting for them, all the while questioning everything' • 'A fascinating, fast-paced, urban fantasy roller-coaster ride set in today's New York, with mind readers, Russian mobsters, kidnappings, murders, and betrayal' • 'I can't think of anything I've ever read that held my attention and entertained me as much as each and every one of the Mind Dimensions books' • 'This should be made into a movie!'
