In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later, Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again... ... until Aiden returns. Too traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken. As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime? It's Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable. This dark and disturbing psychological novel will appeal to fans of The Widow and The Butterfly Garden.

To defeat them, vampires and slayers must fight side by side. But Lilith wants Max in return for her cooperation--a small price for the world, but too high a price for Victoria.

Just when it looks like Lily will have to leave her home forever, Thorn arrives at Castle Gloom. A sudden death brings them together, inspires them to break the rules, and leads them to soar to new heights in this fantasy with all the sparkle and luster of a starry night sky

Traduzione di Fausta Cataldi Villari Edizioni integrali Per combattere la concorrenza dei mezzi di trasporto terrestri, bisognava volare di notte e, nei tempi eroici dell’aviazione, non era difficile rimetterci la vita. E allora perché Fabien ha accettato di alzarsi in volo, in condizioni estreme, sapendo che potrebbe essere l’ultima volta, mentre chi lo aspetta muore d’angoscia? Per amore del prossimo? Per senso del dovere? Certo, sono motivazioni che possono smuovere le montagne, ma ce n’è un’altra, ancora più forte, che ha spinto l’uomo ad andare sempre oltre i suoi limiti: la sfida a questi limiti, all’ignoto, al mai tentato prima. Saint-Exupéry racconta una storia di cui tante volte era stato protagonista, perché anche lui volava di notte per portare la posta, prima e durante la guerra. Ma non si sentiva un eroe, non pensava di sacrificarsi per gli altri: semplicemente, non poteva sottrarsi alla sfida. Accettarla e andare “oltre” aveva forse più valore della vita stessa. Vol de nuit, scritto nel 1931, ottenne il premio Femina nello stesso anno e rese celebre il suo autore. L’aviatore, del 1926, è il primo racconto di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry e racconta la storia di Jacques Bernis, divenuto pilota di aerei per sfuggire al grigiore della vita in provincia.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry(Lione, 29 giugno 1900 – mar Mediterraneo, 31 luglio 1944), è stato uno scrittore e aviatore francese. Oltre a Il Piccolo Principe, uno dei libri più letti e amati nel mondo, è anche autore di Volo di notte e L’aviatore pubblicati in volume unico da Newton Compton editori.
