março 20, 2013

Faz hoje um mês que comecei esta coluna, espero que tenham gostado até agora. Para a semana mudo a temática :) Alguma ideia para novas temáticas?


Dorrin's End, de Sandra Miller

"A Fantasy Short Story
A hapless young commoner meets a conniving old wizard in a cave rumored to be filled with treasure—and only one of them can leave."


Trilogia The Moon, de C.L. Bevill

Livro 1: Black Moon

"Donovan is a werejaguar sworn to fight against his enemies, the dreaded werewolf clan - the Whitelaws. Isabella is an uncommon librarian, a member of the Committee. When she faces down the Whitelaws to retrieve a very dangerous book, she encounters Donovan and their lives will never be the same. This is a novella of about 13,000 words and the first book in the Moon Trilogy. Not for minors."

Livro 2: Amber Moon

"Mirie has been sent to watch a handsome elvish prince because he's alleged to have the mysterious Eyes of the Amber Moon, an artifact that can destroy the world. Instead she becomes embroiled in elvish politics and has to guard for her life, even while she attempts to discover who she really is. This is a novella of about 23,000 words and part 2 of a trilogy. Not for minors."

Livro 3: Silver Moon

"Jack Drake must discover what the secretive third part of the moon relic is and destroy it before it can be used to decimate the world. The equally mysterious Asta is hot on Jack’s tail, eager to gain his trust and find the Silver Moon’s Mystery. Together the pair must endure a trial of fire, dragons, and werewolves to stop the enigmatic Elijah Whitelaw from carrying out the blackest of Unseelie Fae magicks. This is a novella of about 19,000 words and is the third part of a trilogy. Not for minors."


Spoil of War, de Phoenix Sullivan


"SPOIL OF WAR is a fascinating account of early Britain; a gripping tale of lust, love and the horrors of ancient warfare. Beautifully written, filled with myriad period details and compelling characters, it takes you deep into the heart of a brutal era - and into the nature of feminine honor, feminine courage. I was enthralled." - Jennifer Blake, NY Times Bestselling Author
__________

Elsbeth of Olmsbury desires nothing beyond helping her father run his dukedom - until the duke's forces are overwhelmed, his castle torched and Elsbeth seized for the invading king's personal spoil. Expecting the same abuse as the other surviving women of her house, Elsbeth instead finds the king, Leodegrance, treating her with a civility that belies his flagrant desire for her. A desire that will have her his consort in Cameliard once he can convince her rank and duty alone forced his hand against her father.
But Elsbeth is not so easily won. There is the matter of Leodegrance gifting his steward with an unwilling young handmaid from Elsbeth's household. Of his marriage of convenience to his Byzantine queen. And of his plans to subjugate more of Britain's citadels and unite the wild isle under Roman rule.
If Elsbeth can't find her tangled way to forgiveness with the king - or escape the dark designs and perverse desires of Uther Pendragon, enemy to them both - then a legend of Camelot may never be conceived, never be born, and never change history forever ...
Please note: This novel takes place in a harsh era when spoils were often treated as commodities. While the violence toward women and children is period-appropriate and for mature adults only, it is never gratuitous. The story focuses on adaptation, survival and, ultimately, love in the Dark Ages before Arthur was made king."

Um livro é muito mais do que um volume transportável. Um livro é uma mala que levamos connosco quando vamos viajar, pois nele temos tudo o que precisamos. Um livro é mais do que um bem comercializável, é o orgulho de carregar a alma em palavras do seu autor. Um livro é mais do que um livro, ao fim e ao cabo. É o nosso pai e a nossa mãe quando se precisa, nunca esperando mais de nós mas sempre lá para nos dar uma lição. É mais do que um amigo, pois não nos julga, não nos faz perguntas; ouve o nosso interior e responde às questões que nem nós sabíamos que tínhamos cá dentro. Um livro é mais do que um amante, duro como a realidade: umas vezes sonhamos e deleitamo-nos nas suas folhas, outras deixamos dobradas, riscadas, magoadas, outras deixamos a um canto e nunca mais olhamos. Desperta em nós uma panóplia de sensações: o toque da capa, da folha; o cheiro das páginas; o prazer da beleza da capa, das letras. Um livro é mais do que isto tudo, e ainda mais do que isso. Porque com ele viajamos, sonhamos, vivemos, aprendemos, amamos, sentimos, choramos e rimos, tudo sem sair do sítio. E uma façanha destas, vinda de algo tão pequeno e tão frágil, é quase comovente.
