New York Times best-selling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shape-shifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves....

After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders —  a primitive and lethal form of the Others —  the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no man's land beyond their borders —  and the darkness....

As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery's shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.

With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end: with her standing beside a grave.

Fourth in the "flawless" (The Reading Cafe) New York Times best-selling series from the author of Vision in Silver.

For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they're willing to tolerate — both within themselves and within their community....

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn see the new closer companionship as beneficial — both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don't realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others — and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs....

The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest — where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price...

The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before — both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn's help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.

Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon's only hope of ending the conflict.

For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon's doorstep..

    Представьте себе наш обычный мир: мобильники, компьютеры, коммуникации, техника. Представили? А теперь добавьте к этому магов, эльфов, друидов, оборотней, которые, ничуть не скрываясь, живут с начала времен среди людей. Магия и наука здесь работают в нерушимом тандеме. Но всему наступает конец. С каждым новым поколением, магически одаренных людей становится все меньше. А завистников и жадных до власти все больше. И как выжить в такой обстановке хрупкой девушке Василисе, которую отправили проходить практику в глухую богом забытую деревню?

  •  Sleeping Beauties
     King Stephen, King Owen
     Фантастика, Ужасы и Мистика, Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер, Мистика

    In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

    In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare.

    One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world.

    Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.

    Review

    “This delicious first collaboration between Stephen King and his son Owen is a horror-tinged realistic fantasy that imagines what could happen if most of the women of the world fall asleep, leaving men on their own. The authors’ writing is seamless and naturally flowing. Once the action begins, [SLEEPING BEAUTIES] barrels along like a freight train.” (Publishers Weekly)

    “Another horror blockbuster, Mercedes and all, from maestro King and his heir apparent… In a kind of untold Greek tragedy meets Deliverance meets—well, bits of Mr. Mercedes and The Shawshank Redemption, perhaps—King and King, father and son, take their time putting all the pieces into play: brutish men, resourceful women who've had quite enough, alcohol, and always a subtle sociological subtext, in this case of rural poverty and dreams sure to be dashed… A blood-splattered pleasure.” (Kirkus (starred review))

    “Following the renewed interest in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and an increasing climate of wolf-whistle politics, this examination of gender stereotypes, systems of oppression, and pervasive misogyny within American culture feels especially timely… The large cast of characters allows for a multitude of narrative perspectives—from both the affected women and the men they’ve left behind. Violent, subversive, and compulsively readable. The true horror of this father-son-penned novel derives more from its unflinchingly realistic depiction of hatred and violence against women than from the supernatural elements.” (Library Journal)

Именно сюда и отправляется специальный агент Пендергаст со своей помощницей Констанс Грин для проведения расследования кражи элитной коллекции вин.

    Жанр романа — триллер, но он заключает в себе нечто большее. Это история человека, чья единственная цель — бороться с тайной полицией. Это началось в 30-е годы… когда был арестован и расстрелян его отец. Кристапович проносит ненависть к «Конторе» — так именовали КГБ — через всю жизнь. Еще в 1984 году у Александра Кабакова не было надежды опубликовать свой роман, направленный против КГБ.
