Una dinastia immortale. Un oscuro segreto. Quale mistero si nasconde nel palazzo dello zar?Un grande thriller di Dora Levy MossanenUn viaggio mistico nella corte degli zar pieno di sorprese e colpi di scenaDarja ha 104 anni ed è ancora una donna bellissima e dal fascino misterioso. Vive in un antico e fatiscente palazzo e intorno a lei svolazza sempre un nugolo di farfalle. Nessuno sa con certezza chi sia in realtà: l’unico indizio relativo al suo passato è un preziosissimo ciondolo, un uovo Fabergé tempestato di diamanti e pietre preziose da cui non si separa mai. Ha dei poteri soprannaturali e racconta di essere stata la tutrice del piccolo Aleksej, l’erede al trono dei Romanov. È passato quasi un secolo da quando la Rivoluzione ha annegato nel sangue il fasto e la ricchezza degli zar: i membri della famiglia reale sono stati uccisi, il loro nome dannato, i simboli del potere distrutti, eppure pare che Aleksej sia scampato all’eccidio... Darja non lo ha mai dimenticato e quando riceve una convocazione urgente da parte dell’Associazione della nobiltà russa le sue speranze riprendono corpo... Il sangue nero dei Romanov è una storia densa di magia e di avventura, amore e speranza, in cui rivive l’atmosfera lussureggiante di una corte opulenta e ricca di meraviglie, ma destinata a un inevitabile tramonto.La rivoluzione ha spazzato via dalla storia la corte dei Romanov. Ma forse Aleksej è ancora vivo, e solo Darja può trovarlo.Dora Levy Mossanennata in Israele e cresciuta in Iran, è fuggita negli Stati Uniti all’inizio della Rivoluzione islamica. È autrice di tre romanzi tradotti in diverse lingue. Il sangue nero dei Romanov è il suo primo libro tradotto in Italia. Scrive regolarmente per l’«Huffington Post» e vive a Beverly Hills, in California.

From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body. More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come. From the Trade Paperback edition.

When Peter's parents are killed, he is sent to an orphanage in Warsaw, Poland. But Peter is Volksdeutscher-of German blood. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he looks just like the boy on the Hitler Youth poster. The Nazis decide he is racially valuable. Indeed, a prominent German family is pleased to adopt such a fine Aryan specimen into their household. But despite his new "family," Peter feels like a foreigner-an ausländer-and he is forming his own ideas about what he sees and what he's told. He doesn't want to be a Nazi. So he takes a risk-the most dangerous one he could possibly choose in 1942 Berlin. . . . Paul Dowswell weaves meticulous research into a thrilling narrative, exposing a different angle of the horrors of Nazi Germany.
