They killed my mother. They took our magic. They tried to bury us. Now we rise. Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

Es ist ein beeindruckendes Fotobuch zu einem "unheimlichen Reiseziel". Sedlec ist ein Stadtteil von Kutna Hora (Kuttenberg)und beherbergt ebenso wie die anderen Stadtteile von Kutna Hora viele außergewöhnliche Denkmäler und architektonische Bauleistungen vor allem erkennbar an den Kirchen und Kathedralen. Da Kutna Hora einen wichtigen historischen Kern besitzt, gehört sie auch seit 1995 zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe. Etwa 70 km von Prag entfernt liegt liegt in Sedletz (Sedlec), einem Ortsteil von Kutna Hora, das weltberühmte und einzigartige Beinhaus. Sedletz-Ossarium, wie dieses Beinhaus genannt wird liegt direkt unter der Allerheiligenkirche auf dem Friedhof von Sedletz. Hier werden an die 40.000 echte menschliche Skelette aufbewahrt und etwa 10.000 von diesen wurden zu einem künstlerischen Gesamtmeisterwerk verarbeitet. Fotografien als Memento Mori Die Fotografien von Alois Gmeiner, sein Spiel mit Licht und Schatten in diesem Buch sind beeindruckend. Schwarz und düster, geben seine Fotografien die magisch festliche Stimmung dieses Ortes perfekt wieder.

Bone research in recent years has generated much new knowledge, in large measure because of the broad public health implications of osteoporosis and related bone disorders. Bone Formation, the first in a series entitled Topics in Bone Biology, evaluates this new information and formulates novel insights and hypotheses within the broad framework of current knowledge. An easy-to handle and to read work, with concise reviews that are extensively referenced, the chapters in this book are written by internationally known authorities. Particular emphasis is on osteoporosis and related disorders of diminished bone formation. Among the general topics treated is a chapter on biomechanical aspects of bone formation, not often considered in relation to diseases of bone formation. The book constitutes essential reading for those entering the field of bone biology and those who wish to become familiar with up-to-date information in a particular area of bone research.

Well-illustrated throughout with color photographs and drawings, the volume is organized on the basis of clinical problems presented by otologic patients, rather than by category of surgical procedure. Forty-six chapters address such topics as imaging of the temporal bone, cochlear implantation, and neurectomy procedures for vertigo. The second edition also features new information on superior canal dehiscence syndrome and facial reanimation surgery. Annotation : 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ("--[source inconnue].

Bone Pathology is the second edition of the book, A Compendium of Skeletal Pathology that published 10 years ago. Similar to the prior edition, this book complements standard pathology texts and blends new but relatively established information on the molecular biology of the bone. Serving as a bench-side companion to the surgical pathologist, this new edition reflects new advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of bone. New chapters on soft-tissue sarcomas and soft-tissue tumors have been added as well as several additional chapters such as Soft-tissue pathology and Biomechanics. The volume is written by experts who are established in the field of musculoskeletal diseases. Bone Pathology is a combined effort from authors of different specialties including surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and basic scientists all of whom have in common an interest in bone diseases. It will be of great value to surgical pathology residents as well as practicing pathologists, skeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and medical students.
