What would you do for five million dollars? Adam and Evia Langston have lived in their own little garden of Eden since the two married at the age of seventeen. Working their way up from the humblest of beginnings, the Langstons have thrived beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Now they live in the finest home, drive the best cars, and indulge in all the trimmings that signify their massive success. But then the recession hits and rips apart the family’s financial stability. Unable to support their three children and other relatives, Adam and Evia find themselves drowning in financial trouble and teetering on the brink of complete disaster. With nowhere to turn, the Langstons have no idea what to do. Until Shay-Shaunté, Evia’s multimillionaire boss, comes to the Langstons with a five-million-dollar offer that seems so hard to refuse. Will the Langstons make this deal? Or will they recognize that the glitter of five million dollars may be far from gold?

In To Dance with the Devil, the latest entry in Cat Adams's Blood Singer series, Celia Graves's newest client is one of the last surviving members of a magical family that is trapped in a generations-old feud with other magic-workers. She's supposed to die at the next full moon unless Celia can broker peace between the clans or break the curse before it can take effect. For the first time in a long while, Celia's personal life is looking up. Her vampire abilities seem to be under control, her Siren abilities have gotten more reliable, and even though her office was blown up, her services are more in demand than ever now that she's fought off terrorists and been part of the royal wedding of the year. Her friends all seem to be finding love and her grandmother has—finally—agreed to go to family therapy. The only trouble spot is Celia's love life. Not long ago, she had two boyfriends. Now she barely has one and she isn't sure she wants him. But Bruno DeLuca is a powerful mage and Celia needs his help...especially after she's attacked and her client is kidnapped.

Timothy Snyder nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reise ins Herz der Finsternis. Er erzählt in seinem aufsehenerregenden, zutiefst aufwühlenden Buch drei miteinander verknüpfte Geschichten Stalins Terrorkampagnen, Hitlers Holocaust und den Hungerkrieg gegen die Kriegsgefangenen und die nichtjüdische Bevölkerung erstmals so, wie sie sich tatsächlich zugetragen haben: zur gleichen Zeit und am gleichen Ort. Makellos recherchiert, atemberaubend geschrieben und von eindringlicher Humanität gehört Bloodlands zu den historischen Büchern, die einen anderen Blick auf die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts eröffnen. Noch bevor der Zweite Weltkrieg begann, hatte Hitlers zeitweiliger Partner und späterer Gegner Stalin bereits Millionen von Menschen umgebracht und setzte dieses Morden während des Krieges fort. Bevor Hitler besiegt war, hatte er sechs Millionen Juden ermorden lassen und ließ Millionen andere Menschen gezielt verhungern. All dies geschah auf einem einzigen Gebiet: den Bloodlands zwischen Russland und Deutschland. Doch als der Zweite Weltkrieg zu Ende war, verschwand die Erinnerung an diesen millionenfachen Mord in der Dunkelheit hinter dem Eisernen Vorhang. Nicht nur unser Bild vom Holocaust erweist sich jedoch mit dem Blick auf die Bloodlands als unvollständig und westlich verzerrt. Auch die Geschichte Europas gewinnt ein verlorenes Terrain im Osten zurück: die gemeinsame Erinnerung an 14 Millionen Tote und die größte Tragödie der modernen Geschichte. "Bloodlands wird für Jahrzehnte das wichtigste Buch zum Thema sein." Tony Judt "Dieses Buch zwingt seine Leser, Geschichte neu zu überdenken." Norman Davies "Ein originelles, wunderbares, furchterregendes Buch (&). Dieses so schön geschriebene und eindrucksvoll recherchierte Buch ist ohne Zweifel eines der wichtigsten Werke der Zeitgeschichte." Anthony Beevor

Combining shrewd applications of current cultural theory with compelling autobiography and elegant prose, José E. Limón works at the intersection of anthropology, folklore, popular culture, history, and literary criticism. A native of South Texas, he renders a historical and ethnographic account of its rich Mexican-American folk culture. This folk culture, he shows--whether expressed through male joking rituals, ballroom polka dances, folk healing, or eating and drinking traditions--metaphorically dances with the devil, both resisting and accommodating the dominant culture of Texas. Critiquing the work of his precursors-- John Gregory Bourke, J. Frank Dobie, Jovita Gonzalez, and Americo Paredes--Limón deftly demonstrates that their accounts of Mexican-Americans in South Texas contain race, class, and gender contradictions, revealed most clearly in their accounts of the folkloric figure of the devil. Limón's own field-based ethnography follows, and again the devil appears as a recurrent motif, signaling the ideological contradictions of folk practices in a South Texas on the verge of postmodernity.

"A great story with wonderful life lessons . . .."—Books 2 Mention Magazine After the death of her demanding mother, Sara Jolene Tilman is alone in the world for the first time—and ready for a fresh start. Sara becomes Jolene, and moves into the Thank the Lord Boarding House, an oceanside sanctuary that houses eleven other "misguided souls," as proprietress Fannie Johnson thinks of them. Surrounded by strangers, Jolene sees how socially awkward—and lonely—she really is. Yet, as she naively begins her search for love and belonging, Jolene finds she's not alone. . . Disillusioned by romance and success, wealthy Richard Peterson has given up his career and registered at Thank the Lord Boarding House. But he is taken aback by the humble surroundings, and the down-to-earth housemates for whom his status means nothing. Still, Richard discovers simple pleasures—and a promising new relationship. Now, with a little help from Fannie, Jolene and Richard will struggle to find themselves—and each other—at last. "Ms. Forster has given more than a story of redemption; it is a story that encompasses the growth of the inner-self, the cleansing of souls, and an exposure to a time that is strikingly old-fashioned. This story should appeal to the innocence in readers." —The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

Das internationale Erfolgsbuch von Viktor E. Frankl in Neuausgabe „Die Konzentrationslager Hitlers und Himmlers sind heute historisch, sie sind nur ein Beispiel für vielfach andere, neuere Höllen; und wie Viktor Frankl seine Lager-Zeit überwand, das ist inzwischen anwendbar geworden auf viele, nicht nur deutsche Situationen, die Zweifel am Sinn des Lebens nahelegen.“ Hans Weigel im Vorwort
