Nevermore – Erinnerungsort, Versteck, Schlachtruf gegen das Vergessen. Der Weg zu einer gerechteren Gesellschaft ist gepflastert mit flammenden Reden, dem Abschied von einer vermeintlich behüteten Vergangenheit und der Suche nach Verbündeten. Und während das Schweigen der Bewohner Imperias langsam offener Rebellion und neuer Gewalt weicht, zeigt sich, ob eine friedliche Zukunft auf den Ruinen einer gewaltvollen Vergangenheit möglich ist. Leslie Evans war Kinderärztin. Nun ist sie Rebellin und Gejagte. Ganz Imperia kennt ihr Gesicht, das für den Widerstand gegen ein Gesetz steht, das Kinder tötet. Doch es sind nicht mehr ausschließlich die Traumata ihrer jungen Schützlinge, die Leslies Flucht vor der Staatsgewalt erschweren. Mit jedem Tag, den sie im Untergrund verbringt, wächst die Gefahr eines Angriffs.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes Dean Koontz’s short story “Wilderness”! In Innocence, Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever. He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching. Praise for Innocence “A thriller that’s both chilling and fulfilling.”—People (four stars) “Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An optimistic and unexpected conclusion [mirrors] his theme. Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz’s imagination. Enjoy.”—Kirkus Reviews “Mystery and terror, the paranormal and romance—all combine to make Innocence a challenging and emotional experience.”—New York Journal of Books “This novel really is something special. . . . This may just be the book Dean Koontz was born to write.”—Thriller Books Journal “Entrancing . . . as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever constructed. Written in Koontz’ late mellifluent and reflective manner . . . [Innocence is] fueled by deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] hope for redemption.”—Booklist (starred review) “[An] imaginative, mystical thriller from bestseller Koontz . . . This is the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while.”—Publishers Weekly “Masterful storyteller Koontz delivers perhaps his most eerie and unusual tale to date. The timeline in this amazing story is compact, and readers will be swept along as they try to unravel hints and clues as to the true nature of both the protagonists and the unfolding drama. Unpredictably spine-chilling and terrifying, this is a story readers won’t soon forget.”—RT Book Reviews “Elegant . . . Fans of Koontz’s previous series will be left hoping that Addison and Gwyneth, too, will return.”—Library Journal

Gedichte und Rätsel zwischen den Welten Mal augenzwinkernd, mal kritisch-böse arbeitet Inga Tscherkesowa im vorliegenden Gedicht- und Rätselband das Tiefgründige oder auch Witzige aus alltäglichen Begebenheiten und kleinen, aber entscheidenden Momenten heraus. Mit nur wenigen Worten beschwört sie so auf wunderbare Weise komplette Geschichten herauf, zum Beispiel die vom sterbenden Ochsen, der badenden Kammerzofe oder dem Huhn, das gern ein Adler wäre. Dichtend berichtet sie von Schicksalen zwischen Nationen und Grenzen, Sehnsüchten und gut verpackten Abgründen – oder widmet sich dem Flair von Sayn bei Koblenz am Rhein. Immer ein bisschen zwischen den Welten schweben ihre Gedichte, um dann doch plötzlich konkret zu werden – wie beim undichten Iglu-Zelt. So gelingt ihr ein melancholisch-witziger Spagat zwischen Poesie und Realität. Hinzu kommt ein Kabinett skurriler französisch-deutscher Rätsel zu Tieren, von der Scholle über den Kofferfisch bis zur Seegurke – und der russischen Seejungfrau. Ergänzt werden Gedichte und Rätsel mit Illustrationen von ihr selbst und Daniela Daniels.

Sin and Innocence. Pure Sünde und reine Unschuld. Eine Begegnung, die zwei Leben unwiderruflich verändert ... Sin: berechnend und verdorben; skrupellos und eiskalt Er fühlt sich außerhalb menschlicher Konventionen Zuhause, für ihn gibt es nur eine Person, die zählt: er selbst. Jonathan: naiv und unschuldig; sensibel und warmherzig Er glaubt an die Freiheit der sein zu dürfen, der er möchte und an die große Liebe. Sin and Innocence. Zwei Männer, der eine Nacht, der andere Tag. Die sich anbahnende, unmöglich erscheinende Liebesbeziehung, wird von allen Seiten misstrauisch beäugt, aber Sin und Jonathan lassen sich nicht beirren. Sie kämpfen füreinander - gegen jede Widrigkeit und mit allen Mitteln.

Download the reading guide to Innocence here "The dark corners of the human soul are Karen Novak's specialty, and there are few writing today who able to illuminate them with such courage and elegance." -Karen Karbo When private investigator Leslie Stone's own thirteen-year-old daughter, Molly, attempts to hire her to find a vanished friend, the case stirs memories of one from Leslie's own troubled childhood: a series of abductions of girls who became known as the Nightingales. Five eighth-grade boys are being charged with assaulting Molly's friend. But even as their small town erupts in anger and calls for justice, Molly insists that the boys are innocent, and takes the stand to testify on their behalf. Leslie's investigations show that although Molly may be right, someone is guilty. As the case draws her own secret knowledge of the Nightingales' history toward the light, she is left uncertain of every instinct except the one that demands she protect her child- even if she has to betray her own childhood by telling everything. "A smart, realistic tale of female identity and deception." -Time Out New York "This will surely be touted as a suspense novel, and suspenseful it is. But this elegantly written and intricately plotted work transcends genre... This frightening and mesmerizing book deserves a wide readership." -Library Journal "A tantalizing page-turner." -Cincinnati CityBeat

The fear of falling, the awareness of lost innocence, lost illusions, lost hopes and intentions, of civilization in decline—these are the themes which link literature to theology, both concerned with the shape of human destiny. Otten discusses the continuing viability of the myth of the Fall in literature. He relates a wide variety of romantic and modern works to fundamental issues in modern Christianity.
