WHAT THEY FORESEE WILL SHATTER THIS AGE This is the first book in The Artifact War series by Rune S. Nielsen.Featuring intelligent, nuanced characters in a lushly drawn, intricate, and action-packed world, it presents a fresh take on magical systems and magic's impact on power dynamics in society. The plot In his vision, colossal artifacts stride across his homeland, destroying everything in their path. In a desperate attempt to save his home, Mage Prince Phytiax heads to the wild north in search of allies. On his journey, his magical powers become damaged at the worst possible time, and his destined allies need to be saved before they can help him: Pino, the weakest Mage of all time and wielder of a mysterious artifact sword; Emilai, a kidnapped noble woman-turned Witch to fight her captors; and Cordin, an old Light Master wanted for murder, but dead-set on getting his life back. With the brutal and mysterious force invading and destabilizing the kingdoms around them, will his potential allies help or hinder him? And even if they save their homelands, the price might be worse than they ever imagined. What the readers say One reader called it, "A fresh take on the fantasy genre." It's always interesting to hear what readers think. Everyone I talked to about the Doomsayer Prince insist, that it's very much its own thing-and hard to compare with other fantasy they read, listen to, or watch. The readers do tell me they find that the characters act more intelligently than in most other fantasy. That they had fun reading it, and that they appreciate the immersive and epic world-building which makes you feel like you are in a real place. When I keep pestering a reader to tell me what other works of fantasy, they think the Doomsayer Prince reminds them of the most, they hesitate-and then give me vastly different answers. One told me the way I use historical details reminded her of the works of the acclaimed author Guy Gavriel Kay. I'm not sure if I agree, but still that is extremely high praise. Others tell me the beginning reminds them of Robin Hobb's Farseer Triology, because I introduce a completely new kind of magic and the first few chapters take place among royalty. Though these similarities are in no way intentional, I do appreciate the comparison. Others say the closest thing is Avatar: The Last Airbender, Assassin's Creed, or other movies, games, or novels that I have not explored all that much. I'm sure they are all right to some degree (readers most often are) as a lot of the common inspiration in the genre still flows from Lord of The Rings right into modern fantasy-as it has done since the birth of the genre. Still, to me Doomsayer Prince is a tale that stands on its OWN. On its own merits-happily, and proudly. I hope you like it. Warning This book contains some scenes of violence, sexual violence, magical violence, animal death. Please be aware of this prior to your reading experience.

A brawny alpha shifter, a moody dark mage, and a playboy demi-god have decided to break me. They think I don't have any powers and that I was recruited by mistake. It'll be their funeral if they push me too far, because this girl isn't taking any of their shit.My name is Lily Fallen, but don't let my pretty face fool you.

Being Human (eBook, ePUB)
7,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Being Human is the third book in the Staying Alive poetry trilogy. Staying Alive and its sequel Being Alive introduced many thousands of new readers to contemporary poetry. Being Human is a companion volume to those two books - a world poetry anthology offering poetry lovers an even broader, international selection of 'real poems for unreal times'.The range of poetry here complements that of the first two anthologies: hundreds of thoughtful and passionate poems about living in the modern world; poems that touch the heart, stir the mind and fire the spirit; poems about being human, about love and loss, fear and longing, hurt and wonder. There are more great poems from the 20th century as well as many recent poems of rare imaginative power from the first decade of the 21st century.But this book is also rare in reflecting the concerns of readers from all walks of life. Such has been the appeal of Staying Alive and Being Alive that many people have written not only to express their appreciation of these books, but also to share poems which have been important in their own lives. Being Human draws on this highly unusual publisher's mailbag, including many talismanic personal survival poems suggested by our readers.'I love Staying Alive and keep going back to it. Being Alive is just as vivid, strongly present and equally beautifully organised. But this new book feels even more alive - I think it has a heartbeat, or maybe that's my own thrum humming along with the music of these poets. Sitting alone in a room with these poems is to be assured that you are not alone, you are not crazy (or if you are, you're not the only one who thinks this way!) I run home to this book to argue with it, find solace in it, to locate myself in the world again.' - Meryl Streep'Truly startling and powerful poems.' - Mia Farrow'These poems distil the human heart as nothing else... Staying Alive celebrates the point of poetry. It's invigorating and makes me proud of being human.' - Jane Campion'Staying Alive is a blessing of a book. The title says it all. I have long waited for just this kind of setting down of poems. Has there ever been such a passionate anthology? These are poems that hunt you down with the solace of their recognition.' - Anne Michaels'Staying Alive is a magnificent anthology. The last time I was so excited, engaged and enthralled by a collection of poems was when I first encountered The Rattle Bag. I can't think of any other anthology that casts its net so widely, or one that has introduced me to so many vivid and memorable poems.' - Philip Pullman'Usually if you say a book is "inspirational" that means it's New Agey and soft at the center. This astonishingly rich anthology, by contrast, shows that what is edgy, authentic and provocative can also awaken the spirit and make its readers quick with consciousness. In these pages I discovered many new writers, and I've decided I'm now in love with our troublesome epoch if it can produce poems of such genius.' - Edmund White'Staying Alive is a wonderful testament to Neil Astley's lifetime in poetry, and to the range and courage of his taste. It's also, of course, a testament to poetry itself: to its powers to engross and move us, to its ability to challenge and brace us, and to its exultation. Everyone who cares about poetry should own this book.' - Andrew Motion
