“The perfect kind of high-pressure adventure.” — A New York Times bestseller! Red Queen meets The Hunger Games in this epic novel about what happens when a senator’s daughter is summoned to the galactic court as a hostage, but she’s really the galaxy’s most dangerous weapon in disguise. A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for. Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe. When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything. As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.

Conspiracy theories have always been with us, but in the age of the Internet, twenty-four-hour news programs of varying reliability, and ever-more incendiary talk radio, the crop of rumors, bombshells, and shadowy secrets seems more extensive and potent than ever. How to Escape from the Diabolic Triangle? dives into those collective delusions to show what they mean to us as individuals and what role they play in society. Looking closely at nine cases of collective delusion, Jan Berting shows how they can help society articulate widespread fears, but that at the same time they can be wildly misleading, even dangerous.

In addition to examining the aesthetic representation of evil in Nikolai Gogol's Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka, this book explores the traditions of speculation into the devil found in Orthodox theology, medieval Russian literature, and East Slavic folklore. The author considers the evolution of Gogol's demonic idiom, as well as the numerous ways in which the shape of Gogol's devil develops according to theological, literary, and folkloric models of evil. Offering a fresh and apt context for reading Gogol's Dikanka tales, this study also provides the first English-language overview of the devil in medieval Russian literature.

The Zurich Congress marked a return to the origins of Analytical Psychology: here it was that C. G. Jung lived for the first six decades of this century and developed the school of psychology he came to be known for. Here, too, is where many of today's Jungian analysts from all over the world received their training, and their initiation into the profession. As this collection of the complete proceedings attests, the theme of "open questions" drew a bountiful array of intriguing responses, and this to the largest gathering of Jungian analysts ever: more than 800 in all.
