Eine mitreißende Geschichte, in der es buchstäblich um Leben und Tod geht. Wie überlebt man in einer Welt, in der Männer mit silbernen Masken jeden Tag den Tod bringen können? Wie kann man sich selbst treu bleiben, wenn die Herrschenden des Imperiums alles dafür tun, voller Grausamkeit ein ganzes Volk zu unterjochen? Elias und Laia stehen auf unterschiedlichen Seiten. Und doch sind ihre Wege schicksalhaft miteinander verknüpft. Während Elias in der berühmten Militärakademie von Schwarzkliff dazu ausgebildet wird, als Elite-Krieger die silberne Maske der Macht voller Stolz und ohne Erbarmen zu tragen, muss Laia täglich die Willkür der Herrschenden fürchten.

Dort trifft sie auf Elias, den jungen Krieger, der eigentlich ihr Feind sein müsste ...

From the moment they met, Drew and Melinda shared a connection he'd never thought possible, thanks to his extraordinary—and secret—ability to self-heal. Now, with a baby on the way, Melinda needed protection, not a man trying to stay one step ahead.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

In this remarkable WWII story by New York Times bestselling author John R. Bruning, a renegade American pilot fights against all odds to rescue his family--imprisoned by the Japanese--and revolutionizes modern warfare along the way. From the knife fights and smuggling runs of his youth to his fiery days as a pioneering naval aviator, Paul Irving "Pappy" Gunn played by his own set of rules and always survived on his wits and fists. But when he fell for a conservative Southern belle, her love transformed him from a wild and reckless airman to a cunning entrepreneur whose homespun engineering brilliance helped launch one of the first airlines in Asia. Pappy was drafted into MacArthur's air force when war came to the Philippines; and while he carried out a top-secret mission to Australia, the Japanese seized his family. Separated from his beloved wife, Polly, and their four children, Pappy reverted to his lawless ways. He carried out rescue missions with an almost suicidal desperation. Even after he was shot down twice and forced to withdraw to Australia, he waged a one-man war against his many enemies--including the American high command and the Japanese--and fought to return to the Philippines to find his family. Without adequate planes, supplies, or tactics, the U.S. Army Air Force suffered crushing defeats by the Japanese in the Pacific. Over the course of his three-year quest to find his family, Pappy became the renegade who changed all that. With a brace of pistols and small band of loyal fol,lowers, he robbed supply dumps, stole aircraft, invented new weapons, and modified bombers to hit harder, fly farther, and deliver more destruction than anything yet seen in the air. When Pappy's modified planes were finally unleashed during the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, the United States scored one of the most decisive victories of World War II. Taking readers from the blistering skies of the Pacific to the jungles of New Guinea and the Philippines to one of the the war's most notorious prison camps, Indestructible traces one man's bare-knuckle journey to free the people he loved and the aerial revolution he sparked that continues to resonate across America's modern battlefields.

In the year 2022, 60-year-old Fatima is a barren, aging Muslima. Her cruel husband, Azzam is senior imam at the East London Mosque, the largest in England. Fatima carries the disfiguring scars from his abuse. Despite having four wives, Azzam is still desperate for a male heir. One wife has been stoned for her sins; the others are to him, but cattle. Fatima is worthless and expendable in his eyes, so she is chosen to go to the Celebration in Jerusalem. If she dies, there is no loss. There, he tells her, she will conceive a son by receiving The Gift, promised by the mysterious and powerful creature known as The One. Fatima is shocked when she finds herself young and, yes, pregnant. With this realization comes a new kind of horror. She knows that the punishment for adultery is stoning, and Azzam always says that there must be punishment. No longer fearing for her own well-being, Fatima now fears for the fate of her child. She has Azzam to contend with, but also his brother, Hassan—a man who used to rape her cruelly until Azzam punished her with scalding water. Although, blessed by the One, Fatima feels helpless to protect her baby. After all, she is just a woman.
