As a young man, Aleksandr Wilder abandoned his duty - and for that lapse, he was tortured, tormented . . . and transformed. Now he prowls the tunnels beneath the city, fighting on the frontline against the forces of hell, never daring to dream that he can live as a man again. After seven years fighting the world's ultimate evil, Chosen One Charisma Fangorn has become a tough, strong warrior without illusions or joy; even her gift of hearing the earthsong has faded. Deaf to her own instincts, she never suspects that a monster lurks in the dark underneath the streets. When Aleksandr finds Charisma under attack, he rescues and cares for her, and hope stirs once more in his heart . . . and in the world. But in the secret recesses of his soul, he knows the truth. A woman so exceptional could never love a beast - could she? Discover Piatkus Entice: temptation at your fingertips - www.piatkusentice.co.uk

In the middle of the 20th century Vienna began the transformation from post-imperial oddity to a new sub-imperial status as a satellite of Berlin under Nazi control. Am Spiegelgrund clinic, an institution in a garden suburb of the city, was apparently well-intentioned: both a reform school for lost, wayward boys and girls, and a clinic for chronically ill or malformed children. However, its doctors, nurses and teachers created a monstrous parody of the institution's benign-sounding brief, as instructed by the Nazi regime's euthanasia programme, devised to eliminate 'physically, mentally and racially inferior stock'. Through the eyes of an inmate, Adrian Ziegler, and a nurse, Anna Katschenka, Steve Sem-Sandberg, author of the award-winning The Emperor of Lies, explores an intolerable chapter in Austria's past. An absorbing, overwhelming novel, rich in incident and character, The Chosen Ones is obliquely illuminated by the author's sharp sense of the absurd. Passionately serious, meticulously researched, it is an invaluable case study of oppression and injustice.

Since the 1950s, the housing developments in the West that historian Lincoln Bramwell calls �wilderburbs� have offered residents both the pleasures of living in nature and the creature comforts of the suburbs. Remote from cities but still within commuting distance, nestled next to lakes and rivers or in forests and deserts, and often featuring spectacular views of public lands, wilderburbs celebrate the natural beauty of the American West and pose a vital threat to it. Wilderburbs tells the story of how roads and houses and water development have transformed the rural landscape in the West. Bramwell introduces readers to developers, homeowners, and government regulators, all of whom have faced unexpected environmental problems in designing and building wilderburb communities, including unpredictable water supplies, threats from wildfires, and encounters with wildlife. By looking at wilderburbs in the West, especially those in Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, Bramwell uncovers the profound environmental consequences of Americans� desire to live in the wilderness.
