Description :


Ann Cleeves' bestselling series of crime novels, featuring Detective Jimmy Perez, now also adapted for a major BBC television series, draw their inspiration from the place in which they take place: Shetland. In this gloriously illustrated companion to her novels, Ann Cleeves takes readers through a year on Shetland, learning about its past, meeting its people, celebrating its festivals and seeing how the flora and fauna of the islands changes with the seasons. An archipelago of more than a hundred islands, it is the one of the most remote places in the United Kingdom. Its fifteen hundred miles of shore mean that wherever one stands, there is a view of the sea. It has sheltered voes and beaches and dramatically exposed cliffs, lush meadows full of wild flowers in the summer and bleak hilltops where only the hardiest of plants will grow. It is a place where traditions are valued and celebrated, but new technologies and ways of working are also embraced. Whether it is the drama of the Viking fire festival of Up Helly Aa in winter, or the piercing blue and hot pink of spring flowers on the clifftops, the long, white nights of midsummer or the fierce gales and high tides of autumn, Shetland is vividly captured in all its bleak and special beauty.

Edie is stumbling her way through her twenties—sharing a subpar apartment in Bushwick, clocking in and out of her admin job, making a series of inappropriate sexual choices. She's also, secretly, haltingly, figuring her way into life as an artist. And then she meets Eric, a digital archivist with a family in New Jersey, including an autopsist wife who has agreed to an open marriage—with rules. As if navigating the constantly shifting landscapes of contemporary sexual manners and racial politics weren't hard enough, Edie finds herself unemployed and falling into Eric's family life, his home. She becomes a hesitant friend to his wife and a de facto role model to his adopted daughter. Edie is the only Black woman who young Akila knows. Razor-sharp, darkly comic, sexually charged, socially disruptive, Luster is a portrait of a young woman trying to make sense of her life in a tumultuous era. It is also a haunting, aching description of how hard it is to believe in your own talent and the unexpected influences that bring us into ourselves along the way.

Vaelin Al Sorna was known across the realm as the greatest of warriors, but he thought battles were behind him. He was wrong.

After a costly defeat by the Darkblade, Vaelin’s forces are shattered, while the self-proclaimed immortal and his army continue their terrible march. But during the clash, Vaelin regained some of the dark magic that once gave him unrivaled skill in battle. And though the fight he has been drawn into seems near unwinnable, the song that drives him now desires the blood of his enemy above all else…

Library review, Copenhagen. Bork, Claus: "Black Mac". Ten year old Jasper dreams himself across to another world. Here he meets the Princess Isabel and the raven Black Mac, who become his best friends. He gets caught up in violent events among witches, trolls, dragons and all the known fairytale characters. Electro, the King of the Computer kingdom, wishes to wipe out the fantasy world, but is prevented by doing so by Jasper and Black Mac, with the help of a magnet. Jasper’s dream becomes real. As he returns from his nightly dream-experiences, Jasper is dressed in knight’s clothing, given to him by Isabel, and is accompanied by Black Mac. Everything ends happily of course, after many dramatic incidents. The imaginative plot contains an almost unbroken number of exciting situations packed with action, but also fine atmospheric images and emotional passages. The main character, Jasper, from ‘The real world’ is, at the same time, both real and part of the fairytale. As the hero, he manages to save the imagination from the cold, emotionless computer world. Apart from the description of the fight itself against Electro, which is, both in its language and in content, hard to follow, it is a story, which will appeal to a great number of readers in the 11-14 category.
