Ten years after Alex and Aaron Stowe brought peace to Quill and Artimé, their younger twin sisters journey beyond the islands in this New York Times bestselling first novel of a new sequel series to The Unwanteds, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.” Identical twins Fifer and Thisbe Stowe have amazing yet uncontrollable magical abilities. They’re naturally more gifted than even their brother, Alex, the head mage of Artimé, could hope to be. But when they accidentally use their magic in the jungle of Artimé to strike down a beloved creature, Alex is furious, and threatens to lock them away until they can learn to control their power. The threat is soon forgotten, though, when Hux, the ice blue dragon, comes to Artimé bearing the horrible news that his siblings have been enslaved by the notoriously evil Revinir, ruler of the dragon land. Seeking a chance to right their wrong and escape their brother’s wrath, Thisbe, Fifer, and their friend Seth sneak away to rescue the dragons from grave peril. Will their untrained abilities be enough to save the dragons—and themselves—when they come face-to-face with the Revinir?

Das Drama des Jahrhunderts - Flucht, Deportation, Heimatverlust Ob aus ökonomischen, religiösen oder politischen Gründen – das Verjagtwerden wurde im Europa des 20. Jahrhunderts zu einer Massenerfahrung und zu einem Drama, das bis heute in vielen Familien nachwirkt. Abermillionen von Vertriebenen, Flüchtlingen und Entwurzelten wurden im Europa des 20. Jahrhunderts von der Geschichte überrollt. Ein längst überfälliges Buch, das nicht aufrechnet, sondern aufklärt. Das 20. Jahrhundert wird auch als Zeitalter der Vertreibungen bezeichnet. Durch Europa strömten bereits um den Ersten Weltkrieg Wellen von Menschen, die vor ethnischen Verfolgungen flohen. Am Ende des Jahrhunderts wurden Zwangsmigrationen vor allem durch den Zusammenbruch des kommunistischen Systems ausgelöst. Piskorski legt mit seinem preisgekrönten und auf breiter Quellen- und Literaturbasis geschriebenen Buch die erste europäische Geschichte des Zeitalters der Vertreibungen vor. Er spricht vom Exodus der Serben 1915, von den sowjetischen Deportationen der 1930er- und 1940er-Jahre, den Vertreibungen aus den ehemaligen deutschen Ostgebieten, von der Evakuierung von Kindern aus dem von Bombenangriffen bedrohten London, von der Flucht der Italiener aus Istrien nach dem Krieg und schließlich vom Zerfall Jugoslawiens am Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ein leidenschaftliches, mahnendes, mitunter auch provokantes Buch, das man nicht unberührt aus der Hand legt.

But the nightmare’s not over, because she somehow managed to pass the psycho vision stuff to Sawyer. Excellent. Feeling responsible for what he’s going through and knowing that people’s lives are at stake, Jules is determined to help him figure it all out. But Sawyer’s vision is so awful he can barely describe it, much less make sense of it. All he can tell her is there’s a gun, and eleven ear-splitting shots. Bang. Jules and Sawyer have to work out the details fast, because the visions are getting worse and that means only one thing: time is running out. But every clue they see takes them down the wrong path. If they can’t prevent the vision from happening, lives will be lost. And they may be among the casualties…

If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first in a series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy. Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that. What she can’t handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode...and nine body bags in the snow. The vision is everywhere—on billboards, television screens, windows—and she’s the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more she sees. The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it’s someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember. In this riveting start to a gripping series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality.
