|Lila Black is off with the faeries . . .|
Ever since the Quantum Bomb of 2015 things have been different, the dimensions have fused and suddenly our world is accessible to elves, demons, ghosts and elementals—and their worlds are open to us. Things have been different for Special Agent Lila Black too: tortured and magic-scarred by elves, rebuilt by humans into a half-robot, part-AI, nuclear-fueled walking arsenal, and carrying the essence of a dead elfin necromancer in her chest, sometimes she has trouble figuring out who she is.
And a mission to the world of the fae may not help her work it out.
The fae are beautiful, glamorous, exotic, and talented, ruled by their king and queen’s summer and winter courts. Their inventions make food taste better, make beer divine, and bring sparkle and mischief to the world–but that’s only the surface. And Lila is being sent in at the deep end, to the deepest, darkest levels of Faerie: on the primal level, nothing about the fae is glamorous at all.
In a winter-locked, raw, and primitive world, Lila has to deal with the fae at their most basic levels, as tricksters and dealmakers–and the only deals worth making are bloody ones. If Lila’s quest is to succeed, and if she is ever to escape Faerie, the right question must be asked, the right sacrifice must be made, and the right quarry must be hunted down on the winter solstice. All of which is difficult, when the only aides Lila brought to Faerie are her friends . . .
Justina Robson’s new series combines her trademark themes of identity and reality, magic and technology, break-neck plots, a mischievous sense of fun, and a seriously sexy new heroine.

|The Quantum Bomb of 2015 changed everything. The fabric that kept the universe s different dimensions apart was torn and now, six years later, the people of earth exist in uneasy company with the inhabitants of, amongst others, the elfin, elemental, and demonic realms. Magic is real and can be even more dangerous than technology. Elves are exotic, erotic, dangerous, and really bored with the constant "Lord of the Rings" references. Elementals are a law unto themselves and demons are best left well to themselves. Special agent Lila Black used to be pretty, but now she s not so sure. Her body is more than half restless carbon and metal alloy machinery, a machine she s barely in control of. It goes into combat mode, enough weapons for a small army springing from within itself, at the merest provocation. As for her heart, well, ever since being drawn into a game by the elfin rockstar Zal (lead singer of the No Shows), who she s been assigned to protect, she s not even sure she can trust that any more either.|

|"Hi, I m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you..."|
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It s company policy.) But they can t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O Neill can t believe this is his job now—reading other people s e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth s and Jennifer s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can t help being entertained—and captivated—by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he s falling for Beth, it s way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?

|Obaja majú šestnásť, sú spolužiaci a sú úplne iní ako ostatní.|
Červenovláska z chudobnej rodiny. V jednej izbe sa tlačí so štyrmi súrodencami. S nevlastným otcom sa neznáša pre jeho násilnícke sklony. V škole je nová a nepatrí k obľúbencom – nenosí značkové oblečenie, lebo jej rodičia na to nemajú, nie je štíhla ako spolužiačky a na jej vtipných hláškach sa nikto nesmeje.
Jeho rodina netrpí núdzou, ale Park nemá rád sám seba. Chýbajú mu svaly bejzbalistu, výška basketbalistu a sebavedomie amerického tínedžera z nebraskej Omahy. Parkovu matku si totiž otec priviedol z Kórey a syn zdedil jej ázijské črty. A tak si najradšej číta komiksy, počúva obľúbenú hudbu a v školskom autobuse sedí sám.
Až kým jedného dňa nenastúpi istá červenovláska a nikto – okrem neho – ju k sebe nepustí sadnúť.
Eleanor a Park nie sú hlúpi a vedia, že prvá láska takmer nikdy nevydrží. Sú však aj dosť zúfalí a dosť odvážni, a tak to spolu skúsia...

|Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble, it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.|
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show, she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts...
Is that what she’s supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

|At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shaped the wizarding world, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.|
