From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the scorching hot first book in a thrilling new series featuring four warrior brothers who have the power—and the curse—of immortality. For centuries, Dethan has been trapped in a fiery inferno for defying the gods and snatching the power of immortality. Condemned to have his battle-hardened body licked by flames only to regenerate and be consumed all over again, Dethan has lost all hope—until the Goddess of Conflict appears. She will release him from torment—if he’ll use his power and strength as a warrior to raise an army and defeat a fierce enemy faction of gods. Free to live as a man once again, Dethan meets Selinda—heir to the throne of Hexis—and his thoughts quickly turn from the conquest of cities to the conquest of this headstrong beauty. Betrothed to a cruel, calculating powermonger, Selinda needs a champion, and so Dethan enters into another bargain: If she will share her bed—and her body—with him, Dethan will save her city from destructive forces within and without. As the lovers ignite a searing passion, Dethan will risk all—even the wrath of the Goddess of Conflict—for a chance to make Selinda his forever. From the Paperback edition.

In one of the most famous passages in Maha·bhárata, Dur·yódhana, the heroic but flawed king of the Káuravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river Sarásvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the Pándavas.

Ein an historische Ereignisse angelehnter Roman über die Indianerkriege und die amerikanische Expansion nach Westen, voller Gewalt und Grausamkeit; ein mythisches Weltuntergangsepos mit Bildern wie von Hieronymus Bosch. Hauptfigur ist ein vierzehnjähriger Junge, der 1850 nach Texas kommt und sich einer Bande marodierender Exsoldaten, Desperados und Abenteurer anschließt, die Komantschen, Apachen und friedliche Siedler abschlachten. «Das ist der Autor, an dem sich alle amerikanischen Autoren messen lassen müssen.» (The Guardian) «Der Roman ist großartig in seiner Sprachkraft und seinem Bilderreichtum, er ist grandios in seinen Landschaftsbeschreibungen, verstörend in seiner Darstellung nackter Gewalt.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «McCarthy erzählt so spannend wie Joseph Conrad und so elegant wie William Faulkner.» (Der Spiegel) «Ich beneide alle Leser, die ihre erste Erfahrung mit der Prosa dieses Autors noch vor sich haben; es ist eine Erfahrung, als habe man die Welt bislang durch Milchglas betrachtet. McCarthys Sprache klärt den Blick.» (Klaus Modick, Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Das erinnert mich an das Beste von Thomas Pynchon. (...)

A perceptive thinker and author of five scholarly tomes as well as numerous essays, the philosopher and historian of religion, Constance E. Plumptre is now unfamiliar to many readers. Yet for a period of just over twenty years between 1878 and 1902 she championed some of the most fascinating philosophical and religious theories of the Victorian age. Although she won greatest acclaim for Studies in Little-Known Subjects (1898), her first work, General Sketch of the History of Pantheism, published anonymously in 1878, was one of the most significant nineteenth-century studies in theological philosophy. In this second volume Plumptre continues her account of modern Pantheism and introduces the reader to the works of Spinoza, Fichte, Hegel and Schopenhauer, before concluding with a brief but insightful summary of this substantial philosophical question.
