There can be no light without darkness, no hope without despair, no love without heartache Some scars can´t be seen When the handsome Frederick Mackintosh offers to marry Aggie McLaren, she is certain ´tis greed or insanity that motivates him. Besides land and a chance at a chiefdom, she believes she has nothing to offer. She soon learns nothing could be further from the truth. Hope she thought long lost blooms with her husband´s kindness, his honor, and his fierce determination to make their marriage and their clan a success. Sometimes perfection is imperfect Aggie McLaren is not Frederick Mackintosh´s image of the perfect wife. She isn´t well read, vivacious, or voluptuous. Wee, timid, and unable to speak, it is a glimpse of her smile and the chance to be chief of his own clan that propels him to offer for her hand. Frederick will do whatever he must in order to see her smile again and to help her find her voice. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Brad Wills.

Der Morgen graut, und die Vampire des uralten Clans zieht es eilig zurück in ihre Gruft. Für die Großen und Mächtigen ist das ganz leicht, aber die schwachen, kleineren Vampire sind nur in großen Gruppen stark. Deshalb ist es sinnvoll, mehrere niedrige Werte zusammen auszuspielen, um damit nicht so leicht überboten zu werden. Aber bei diesem flotten Kartenspiel ist jedes Mittel recht, um die aufdringlichen Vampirjäger loszuwerden. Denn die will keiner haben!
The year is 1853, and a young Japanese girl´s world is about to be turned upside down. When black ships carrying barbarians arrive on the shores of Japan, the Satsuma clan´s way of life is threatened. But it´s not just the samurai who must come together to fight: the beautiful, headstrong Okatsu is also given a new destiny by her feudal lord - to save the realm. Armed only with a new name, Princess Atsu, as she is now known, journeys to the women´s palace of Edo Castle, a place so secret it cannot be marked on any map. Behind the palace´s immaculate façade, amid rumours of murder and whispers of ghosts, Atsu must uncover the secret of the man whose fate, it seems, is irrevocably linked to hers - the shogun himself - if she is to rescue her people . . .
Her name is Inanna. Spoiled granddaughter of King Anu of the planet Arra, she is more obsessed with being a queen on Earth than in saving Arra from a disaster set in motion by her malicious father, Morgoth. The feud between the Arkonian Morgoth and his Arran half-brother Ea, a deadly struggle for Anu´s throne that began on Arra, continues after they arrive on Earth. Promising to unite the feuding clans, Inanna marries Ea´s son, Dumuzi, but her marriage is only a ruse to become queen. In the fierce battle of political brinksmanship that pushes both brothers toward war, Dumuzi is killed. She blames Ea´s oldest son, Marduk. Inanna grieves, but not for Dumuzi. She mourns losing her one chance to be a queen. To humor her, Anu agrees to make her Queen of the Indus, but only if she acquires the proper training. Determined to meet the test, she seduces Ea and then Anu, who keeps his promise. As queen, she builds a magnificent palace and finds the perfect consort, Sargon. But Sargon makes a fatal mistake. After he steals the sacred sword from Babylon, Marduk hounds Sargon to death. Inanna now blames Marduk for the deaths of Dumuzi and Sargon. After a bloody rampage of war on Earth, and the utter destruction of the cities, Inanna returns to Arra. Anu promises to keep her confined to his palace on Arra, out of mischief. But does he? Or do her further brazen acts earn her the immortal title of ´´Queen of Vengeance´´? ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Saskia Maarleveld.

A dissident faction of the Clan, the alternate-universe group of families that has traded covertly with our world for a century or more, have carried nuclear devices between the worlds and exploded them in Washington, DC, killing the president of the United States. Now they will exterminate the rest of the Clan and keep Miriam alive only long enough to bear her child, the heir to the throne of their land in the Gruinmarkt world. The worst and deepest secret is now revealed: Behind the horrifying plot is a faction of the US government itself, preparing for a political takeover in the aftermath of disaster. There is no safe place for Miriam and her Clan except, perhaps, in the third alternate world, New Britain - which has just had a revolution and a nuclear incident of its own. Charles Stross´ Merchant Princes series reaches a spectacular climax in this sixth volume. Praised by Nobel laureate Paul Krugman as ´´great fun´´, this is state-of-the-art, cutting-edge SF grown out of a fantastic premise. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Reading.
