Софи никогда и подумать не могла, что знакомые с детства легенды могут оказаться правдой, но они ворвались в ее размеренную жизнь охотника за нечистью и перевернули все с ног на голову. Теперь от нее и ее друзей зависит, будет ли мир таким, как прежде, или окажется под властью армии опасных и алчных существ. Это захватывающий фантастический роман о любви, длящейся от начала времен, о верной дружбе и вероломном коварстве, история об отваге, чести и самопожертвовании.

Сорок шесть ронинов, защищающих свою честь, бросили вызов судьбе после того, как злое колдовство и предательство убили их хозяина, князя Асано. Кай проведет их дорогой смерти… и любви. И докажет всем: неважно, откуда ты пришел; важно, куда ты уйдешь – в небытие или в бессмертие… Мировая кинопремьера на основе старинной японской легенды!

In A CHARGE OF VALOR (Book #6 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor continues on his quest, deeper into the Empire, to retrieve the stolen Destiny Sword and save the Ring. As he and his friends meet unexpected tragedy and lose a member of their close-knit group, Thor and his remaining friends become closer than they ever were, learning that they must face and overcome adversity together.

And Gwendolyn must decide if she will give up on life, or take up the secluded life of a nun in the ancient Tower of Refuge. But not before, in a shocking twist, Thor finally learns who his real father is. Will Thor and the others survive the quest? Will they retrieve the Destiny Sword? Will the Ring survive Andronicus’ invasion? What will become of Gwendolyn, Kendrick and Erec? And who is Thor’s real father?

Thor has no choice to but to embark to find his mother, to leave his wife and child and venture away from his homeland on a perilous quest that will have the very future of the Ring at stake. Before Thor embarks, he unites with Gwendolyn in the greatest wedding in the history of the MacGils, he must first help rebuild the Legion, he deepens his training with Argon, and he is given the honor he has always dreamed of when he is inducted into the Silver and becomes a Knight.

The McCloud side of the Highlands are equally unstable, with a civil war on the verge of breaking out due to Bronson’s shaky rule and Luanda’s ruthless actions. With the Ring on the verge of civil war, Romulus, in the Empire, discovers a new form of magic which may just destroy the Shield for good.

With the Destiny Sword destroyed, and the fate of the Ring in the balance, Argon and Alistair will need to summon their magical powers to help Gwendolyn’s brave warriors.

In A VOW OF GLORY (Book #5 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor embarks with his Legion friends on an epic quest into the vast wilds of the Empire to try to find the ancient Destiny Sword and save the Ring. Thor’s friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. They encounter exotic lands, creatures and peoples beyond which they could have ever imagined, each step of their journey fraught with increasing danger. They will have to summon all their skills if they are to survive as they follow the trail of the thieves, deeper and deeper into the Empire. Their quest will bring them all the way into the heart of the Underworld, one of the seven realms of hell, where the undead rule and fields are lined with bones. As Thor must summon his powers, more than ever, he struggles to understand the nature of who he is. Back in the Ring, Gwendolyn must lead half of King’s Court to the Western stronghold of Silesia, an ancient city perched on the edge of the Canyon that has stood for one thousand years. Silesia’s fortifications have allowed it to survive every attack throughout every century – but it has never been faced with an assault by a leader like Andronicus, by an army like his million men. Gwendolyn learns what it means to be queen as she takes on a leadership role, Srog, Kolk, Brom, Steffen, Kendrick and Godfrey by her side, preparing to defend the city for the massive war to come. Meanwhile, Gareth is descending deeper into madness, trying to fend off a coup that would have him assassinated in King’s Court, while Erec fights for his life to save his love, Alistair and the Duke’s city of Savaria as the downed shield enables the wild creatures to invade. And Godfrey, wallowing in drink, will have to decide if he is ready to cast off his past and become the man his family expects him to be. As they all fight for their lives and as things seem as if they can’t get any worse, the story ends with two shocking twists. Will Gwendolyn survive the assault? Will Thor survive the Empire? Will the Destiny Sword be found?

In AN OATH OF BROTHERS, Thorgrin and his brothers emerge from the land of the dead, more driven than ever to find Guwayne, and set sail across a hostile sea, leading them to places beyond their wildest dreams. As they come ever-closer to finding Guwayne, they also encounter obstacles unlike ever before, obstacles which will test them to their very limits, which will call on all their training and force them to stand together as one, as brothers. Darius stands up to the Empire, boldly waging a guerilla war, amassing an army, as one freed slave village after the next rallies to his cause. Facing off against fortified cities, against an army a thousand times his size, he summons all of his instincts and courage, determined to survive, determined to win, to strive for freedom at any cost, even at the cost of his life. Gwendolyn, with no other choice, leads her people into the Great Waste, deeper into the Empire than anyone has ever journeyed, on a quest to find the legendary Second Ring—the last hope for the survival of her people, and the last hope for Darius. Yet along the way she will encounter horrific monsters, worse landscapes, and an insurrection from amidst her own people that even she may not be able to stop. Erec and Alistair sail for the Empire to save their people, and along the way stop at hidden islands, determined to raise an army—even if it means dealing with mercenaries of questionable repute. Godfrey finds himself deep inside the city of Volusia and deep in trouble as his plan goes from bad to worse. Imprisoned, set to be executed, finally, even he can see no way out. Volusia forges a pact with the darkest of sorcerers, and driven to even greater heights, she continues her ascent, conquering all who stand in her way. More powerful than ever, she will take her war all the way to the steps of the Empire Capital—until she is up against the entire Empire army, an army that dwarfs even her own, setting the stage for an epic battle.

Will Darius lead his people to victory?

Kui siiani täiesti tavalist koolitüdruku elu elanud Maria kuuleb enda kohta käivaid veidraid ennustusi, ei võta ta neid esialgu kuigi tõsiselt.

Maria on sunnitud oma varasemast elust põgenema, teadmata õieti, kes on ta vaenlased või sõbrad, või kes on ta tegelikult ise.

В Дануолле появляется странный человек, закутанный с ног до головы в тяжелые, диковинные одежды. Он владеет силами, которыми некогда обладал ассасин, известный под именем Дауд. Опасаясь, что вернулся их смертный враг, Эмили и Корво, очертя голову, бросаются в схватку со временем.

“Elavate surnute” maailmas pole vihatumat meest kui Kuberner, despoot, kes juhib müüristatud Woodbury linna, kellel on omaenda haiglane õiglustunnetus, sundides vange linnarahva lõbustamiseks zombidega võitlema. Aga kuidas ta alustas? Kuidas tast sai selline mees? Romaanisarja “Elavate surnute” esimene raamat “Kuberneri tõus” keskendub just sellele. Tuleb välja, et ta alustas vaikse, rahuliku muusikaärimehena, kes armastas väga oma venda ja vennatütart. Ta muutus romaani jooksul on äärmiselt suur, sama võib öelda ka kõigi teiste raamatu tegelaste kohta. Kui palju oli Kuberneri muutumisel süüdi just see, et ta ei suutnud õigesti ümbritsevale vastu astuda, et ta pidi tegema, mis tegi, ellujäämiseks, kuni tast sai see, kes ta oli? Kas peitub Kuberner meis endis? On elavaid surnuid täis maailm ja Brian Blake, ta vend Philip, tolle tütar Penny ja nende sõbrad Bobby ja Nick, kes üritavad keset zombide maailmalõppu ellu jääda, alguses teisi inimesi otsides, siis neid umbusaldades, viimaks – kahjuks küll enamikku neist – vihates. Kui maailm meie ümber drastiliselt muutub, kas jääme iseendiks või muutume? Nietzchet tsiteerides: „Kes võitleb koletisega, peab ette vaatama, et temast endast ei saaks koletis. Kui pikalt sügavikku vaadata, vaatab sügavik sulle vastu.“ Ja sa ei saa sinna midagi parata, et vaatab. Või saad?
Selles raamatus jätkub „Elavatesurnute“ maailma vihatuima mehe – Kuberneri – elu ja võimuvõitluse tutvustusWoodbury linnas, mis algas raamatus „Elavad surnud: Kuberneri tõus“. Temapeamiseks vastaseks on keerulise saatusega neiu nimega Lilly Caul, kes ei suudataluda kuberneri meetodeid linnarahva lõbustamiseks – omalaadseidgladiaatorivõitlusi elavate surnute ja inimeste vahel või ka inimeste endivahel, kes Kubernerile ei meeldi. Samas on Lilly seesmise vastasseisu mingilmääral tekitanud tüdruk ise, olles äärmiselt rahulolematu iseendaga, mis sunnibteda peaaegu enesehävituslikule teele. Seega saavad postapokalüptilisesmaailmas inimesed niinimetatud „elavate surnutega“ mingil viisil hakkama, kuidhakkama ei saa nad teiste pingeolukorras inimestega. Mida me maailmas kõigerohkem kardame, oleme me ise.

Ja kus su keha siis on, nõudis ta.
 Seal, eemal, osutasin ma sinna, kus rabelevat ja sõimavat Jörgenit kinni hoiti.
 Vanake ei pööranud meile enam mingit tähelepanu ja hõljus üllatavalt kiiresti sinnapoole, kuhu ma just osutanud olin. Mõtlesin tol hetkel, et veel kuu aega tagasi poleks ma uskunudki, et minuga kunagi üldse midagi sellist juhtuda võiks – vaimud, Kuuhundid, Valvurid, Ülemiste Vanake, kuulsuste sarnased golemid… Jube! Kuid nüüd olin ma ka ise selle maailma liige. Tagasiteed polnud ja see tundus isegi kuidagi loomulik. Raamatu “Iseenda laps” kangelanna, tavaline Tallinna koolitüdruk Annika seisab ühel hommikul kummaliste valikute ees. Enesele ootamatult naaseb ta oma sünnieelsesse aega, armub siniste juustega noormehesse, kes osutub vaimuks, võitleb müstiliste olenditega ning tema missiooniks saab päästa maailm läbi selle, et sünnitada …. iseennast. Autorist: Airka Harrik on sündinud 28.veebruaril 1995, lõpetanud Pelgulinna Gümnaasiumi kunstiklassi ning jätkab õpinguid Tallinna 21. koolis. “Iseenda laps”, mille kirjutamist alustas ta 13aastasena, on tema esikromaan ning esimene osa samateemalisest triloogiast.

Jäälohe oli legendaarne ja hirmuäratav olevus, sest ühelgi inimesel polnud õnnestunud teda taltsutada. Kui ta kuskilt üle lendas, jäi maha kõle külm ja jäätunud maa. Kuid Adara ei kartnud. Adara oli talvelaps, sündinud kõige karmima pakase ajal, millest hullemat ei mäletanud ka kõige vanemad inimesed. Adara ei teadnud, millal ta esimest korda jäälohet nägi. Tundus, nagu oleks lohe tema elus kogu aeg olemas olnud. Algul eemal, kui ta üksi külmas lumes mängis, samal ajal kui teised lapsed olid soojadesse tubadesse pagenud. Neljandal eluaastal ta puudutas lohet ja viiendal ronis esimest korda ta laiale külmale seljale. Ent kui ta oli seitsmene, lendasid põhjast kohale tulised lohed ja sööstsid Adara rahuliku kodutalu poole. Ning ainult talvelapse – ja teda armastava jäälohe – võimuses oli päästa ta senine maailm täielikust hävingust. „Jäälohe” sündmused toimuvad samas maailmas, kus George R. R. Martini tohutu müügieduga sarja „Jää ja tule laul” ning selle põhjal valminud filmiseriaali tegevus. Haaravat ja südantsoojendavat lugu tüdrukust ja tema lohest rikastavad palju kiidetud kunstniku Luis Royo illustratsioonid. George R. R. Martin on kuuekordne Hugo ja kahekordne Nebula auhinna võitja, tema fantaasiasarja „Jää ja tule laul” on ohtrasti kiidetud ja selle järgmisi osi oodatakse kannatamatult. Raamatusarja põhjal on tehtud edukas filmisari. Kirjanik elab New Mexico osariigis, Santa Fe linnas. Luis Royo on viljakas Hispaania kunstnik, keda tuntakse eeskätt ulmeraamatutele tehtud lopsakate illustratsioonide järgi. Ta on illustreerinud üle kolmekümne raamatu ning osalenud oma töödega paljudel kunstinäitustel Hispaanias, Itaalias ja Ameerika Ühendriikides.

Noormeest seiravad endiselt ohud, mis kaasnesid surnute seast naasmisega, ning suutmata sellega leppida, seab Clary surmaohtu ka enda. Kas kohutavaid salaplaane sepitsevasse Jonathan Morgensterni ehk Sebastianisse, nagu ta end nüüd nimetab, on jäänud kübetki inimlikkust? Kuidas raiuda läbi eelmise raamatu lõpul Valentine’i lihase ja kasupoja vahel loodud sidet? Millised intriigid põimuvad vampiiriklannis? Kuidas sekkub sündmustesse kurikaval haldjakuninganna? Mida tehakse “Põrgu sõdalaste” sarjas mainitud libahuntide ühingus Praetor Lupus? Ja lõpuks: kas meie armunud paaride kohal on taevas pilvitu? Lugeja viiakse tegelaste kannul Veneetsiasse, Prahasse ja Pariisi ning lastakse tal koos nendega osa saada nende kaunite linnade iseäralikust atmosfäärist. Ent veel sellegi raamatu lõpul ei ole kõik küsimused vastust leidnud. 448 lk

See on mõnes mõttes sümboolne, et Pratchetti viimaseks Kettamaailma raamatuks jäi just Tiffany Achingu ja tillude vabameeste lugu. Pratchett on korduvalt öelnud, et Tiffany kaudu väljendab ta paljusid oma seisukohti ning Tiffany on ka oma suhtumisega üks maailma alussambaid, see, kes vaatab, et kõik toimiks, et nõrgematele ei tehtaks liiga ja et tasakaal püsiks. Just tasakaaluga on „Karjase kroonis“ aga pahad lood, sest nõidade seatud piirid on korraks vankuma löönud ja haldjad näevad võimalust sisse tungida ja oma julmi tunge inimeste peal välja elada. Seega tuleb neile vastu astuda ja koondada selleks kõik, kes vähegi aidata tahavad.
Uustulnuk Abby Abernathy on hea tüdruk. Ta ei joo ega vannu ja tal on kapis paras hulk kašmiirkampsuneid. Abby usub, et ta on oma minevikust küllalt kaugele pääsenud. Aga kui ta koos parima sõbrannaga kolledžisse saabub, seisab tal Easterni ülikoolis uue tee algul ees tõsine katsumus kurikuulsa üheöösuhtetähe näol. Travis Maddox, kõhn, terav ja tätoveeringutega kaetud, on just see poiss, keda Abby peab vältima. Travis veedab õhtuid tänavakaklusematšidel raha võites, ja päevi kolledži naistemehena. Lummatuna Abby vastupanust tema võludele, meelitab Travis Abby kavala nõksuga oma igapäevaellu, sõlmides tüdrukuga kihlveo: kui kaotab tema, peab ta kuu aega naistest eemale hoidma; kui kaotab Abby, peab ta elama kuu aega Travise korteris. Nii või teisiti pole Travisel aimugi, et tegu on võrdväärse vastasega.

Lightwood, Wayland, Herondale, Penhallow… Nimed, millega Cassandra Clare’i “Surmava arsenali” sarja lugejad on juba tuttavad, ilmuvad selles romaanis jälle nende ette – muutunud on ainult aeg ja koht, kus hargneb teose sündmustik. Nefilimide varasema põlvkonna võitude ja kaotuste tunnistajaks on kuninganna Victoria aegne udune London ning sündmuste keerises tüdruk Tessa. Saanud teda kasvatanud tädi surma järel Londonis elava venna saadetud laevapileti, sõidab neiu New Yorgist temaga kohtuma, ent ei leia Nate’i eest. Tessa on ihuüksi võõras linnas, teadmata oma sünget sünnisaladust ning oskamata aimata, et teda jahib tema erilise võime pärast okultistlike ringkondade mõjuvõimsaim isik – kurjakuulutav Magister.

Victoria-aegse Londoni maagiast küllastunud allilma kistuna avastab Tessa Gray, et on hakanud järjest enam kiinduma Jemisse, aga haihtunud pole ka piinav tõmme seletamatult tujuka Willi poole. Midagi näikse Willis siiski pikkamööda muutuvat – müür, mille ta enda ümber on püstitanud, oleks nagu hakanud murenema. Kas Magistri leidmine võimaldaks hämaratest meeleoludest muserdatud noormehel vabaneda piinavatest saladustest ning annaks ühtlasi vastuse Tessa küsimusele, kes ta on ja mis on siin maailmas tema elu eesmärk? Tõeotsingud ähvardavad saada kolmele sõbrale hukatuslikuks: üks nende lähiringist osutub reeturiks ja Tessa ei suuda ikka veel oma tunnetes selgusele jõuda. Sarja „Põrgu sõdalased” teises raamatus jätkuvad Cassandra Clare’i „Surmava arsenali” sarja varjuküttide varasema põlvkonna seiklused udusel ja vihmasel Inglismaal.

Tessa Gray peaks olema õnnelik – eks ole ju kõik pruudid õnnelikud. Ent ajal kui neiu valmistub pulmadeks, hakkab Londoni Instituudi varjuküttide ümber silmus koomale tõmbuma. Lagedale ilmuv uus deemon on vere ja salasidemete kaudu ühendatud Mortmainiga – mehega, kes on loonud varjuküttide hävitamiseks armee halastamatutest kellavärgikoletistest. Mortmainil on oma plaani teostamiseks vaja veel ainult Tessat. Ning Jem ja Will, noormehed, kellel on ühepalju õigust Tessa südamele, teevad kõik, et teda päästa. Selle raamatuga jõuab lõpule “Põrgu sõdalased” – peadpööritavalt põnev triloogia täis hädaohtusid ja reetmist, saladusi ja võluväge. “Kellavärgiga printsessi” traagiline lugu toimub 19. sajandi keskel Põhja-Inglismaal hämaras Yorgi Instituudis ja järellugu toob lugeja 21. sajandisse. Kas Tessa Gray võimed ja kaitsev kellavärgiingel suudavad kuratliku armee elustamist takistada?
Üheteistkümneaastane Tiffany Aching tahab päris nõiaks saada. Aga päris nõid ei astu nagu muuseas oma kehast välja, jättes selle tühjaks. Tiffany aga teeb seda, ning samal ajal ootab keegi just vaba ja käepärast keha. Keegi iidne ja hirmus, kes ei sure. Nüüd peab Tiffany kibekiiresti päris nõiaks õppima ja õnneks on tal ka võimekad abilised: Vanaema Weatherwax, preili Level ja loomulikult Nac Mac Feegle'id – kõige riiakamad, vintskemad ja haisvamad haldjad, keda on kunagi selle pärast Haldjamaalt välja aetud, et nad olid kell kaks pärast lõunat purjus. Nad on valmis võitlema millega tahes. Terry Pratchett on üks populaarsemaid kaasaegseid kirjanikke. Teda tuntakse eriti tänu tema erakordselt edukale Kettamaailma sarjale, mis on mõeldud täiskasvanutele, kuid mida loevad ka paljud noored huvilised. Tema esimene Kettamaailmal aset leidev noortele lugejatele mõeldud romaan "Hämmastav Maurice ja tema õpetatud närilised", võitis 2002. aastal Carnegie medali. "Tillud vabamehed", esimene Tiffany Achingi ja Nac Mac Feegle'ite tegemistest jutustav romaan, ilmus Varrakus 2005. aastal. Tema teoste hulka kuulub ka rida teisi noortele mõeldud raamatuid, sealhulgas "Bromeliadi" triloogia, mille põhjal hakatakse looma suurejoonelist animafilmi. Terry Pratchett elab Inglismaal, Wiltshire's ja leiab, et elu on üsna igav.

Clary on jälle New Yorgis ja elu on ilus: tüdruk harjutab, et saada varjukütiks, ta ema Jocelyn valmistub abielluma ning Clary tohib viimaks ometi nimetada Jace’i oma kallimaks. Aga igal asjal on hind. Kogunema hakkavad sünged pilved. Möödanik ei vaju unustusehõlma, vaid annab endast taas märku, äratades Jocelynis kohutavaid mälestusi ja sundides Claryt kahtlema, kas polnud ingel Razielilt soovitu äkki saatuslikult ohtlik. Kui Jace hakkab temast mingil seletamatul põhjusel eemalduma, peab Clary tõdema, et ta on ise vallandanud sündmuste ahela, mille lõpul võib kaotada kõik, mida armastab. Isegi Jace’i. 360 lk
„Loojate mängud“ on suurepärane hommikusaiake nende fantastikagurmaanide lauale, kelle praetaldrikuil kõrgub virn Neil Gaimani „Sandman‘e" ja öökapil ootab vana hea Bulgakovi „Meister ja Margarita“. See on gooti stiilist inspireeritud mütoloogiliste sugemetega sünge ja sarkastiline teos, mis sobib lugemiseks kõigile, kellele meeldib ette kujutada, et maailmas peitub midagi enamat kui tundub. Leila Tael-Mikešin, enda sõnul varjudes kõndiv fantaseerija, kirjutab fantastika valdkonda kuuluvaid jutte, mille läbivateks tegelasteks on müstilised olendid ja inimesed, kes omavad ebatavalisi võimeid ning elavad kummalises maailmas. Leila Tael-Mikešin on kauaaegne Poogna autor, silma paistnud Fantaasia ja Ulmeühingu korraldatud jutuvõistlusel, avaldanud loo Täheajas ja e-raamatu "Hullud". Raamatu ilmumist on toetanud Eesti Kultuurkapital.
