And to discover the power that lies within them. Sacha's life, and the fate of the world depends on it. The clock starts NOW. What readers are saying about The Secret Fire... 'Pure awesome... There were moments when I laughed, moments where I gasped in surprise, and moments where I knew I could not read fast enough because I had to know what was going to happen next... My only complaint? That it ended and now I need to wait. I must know what happens next. I must!!!!' Series Tracker 'Are you ready for a grip the edge of your seat-repeating mantra of OMG as you turn the pages eagerly? Looking for something with intensity but also something that leaves you begging for more??? Looking for a new fav??? YES. This book is all of what you need and so much more! Go Into This One Knowing. Best. Book. Ever.' Crossroad Reviews 'This was incredible!... such a slow burn romance but the build-up had my heart beating out of my chest, the angst and suspense was killing me... This book was perfectly paced and the lack of info-dumping, love triangles and insta-love made for a perfect start to a new series. Switching from POV's from England and Paris and following the characters as they go from across countries was a great concept. With the addition of magic, action and adventure this book could really do no wrong in my eyes. There isn't a cliffhanger ending just the promise of lots more to come in the next installment which I'm now anxiously awaiting. I highly recommend this to fellow fantasy lovers who are looking for a brand new world to immerse themselves in, with great characters, a promising romance and a thrilling journey ahead.' Literary-ly Obsessed 'I love this book! It was really great! I've always loved books that include Alchemy as its major fantasy core, I just think that it's such a fascinating 'science'! ... I read the first chapter, and I was completely swept into this amazing world! ... can't wait until the second book comes out, and to continue exploring this amazing story!

"This collection of contemporary art, created by Giuseppe Panza di Biumo in forty-five years of passionate exploration and vigorous contact with museums, galleries and spaces dedicated to contemporary artistic creativity, is one of the most well-documented and important collections of works from the last decades of the twentieth century. This book illustrates through typologies and "schools of thought" the collection held at Villa Menafoglio at Biumo Superiore: from Minimalist art, represented by Dan Flavin, Conceptual art by Ian Wilson, and Environmental art of Turell, Irwin and Nordman, to works exploring color by Roeth, Fredenthal, Simpson, Sims, Spalletti and Arends, and the "vital form" with examples by Graham, Kiecol, Puryear, and Highstein, as well as Max Cole, Meg Webster and Ford Beckman. The final part of the work gives an account of the history of the collection, of loans to important Italian museums and of exhibitions organized by the collector and held in the contemporary art museums of Los Angeles, Madrid and Bilbao."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Nel 2013 i nati nel 1995 compiranno 18 anni e per la prima volta saranno chiamati a votare. Nel 1995 sono successe molte cose che però arrivano da lontano. La nascita del Wto, la guerra nella ex Jugoslavia, ma anche la fondazione dell'Ulivo, di Libera e l'apertura definitiva del mercato globale. Ognuno di questi eventi può essere letto in modi diversi, ma se si guarda a un disegno più esteso, se si prova a leggere la storia con attenzione si possono scorgere i segni di un cambiamento radicale utile per comprendere il nostro presente. Parlando a chi è nato nel 1995, Davide Mattiello costruisce una mappa per non smarrirsi e offre a chi si affaccia alla maturità uno strumento utile per sapersi orientare: lo spirito critico capace di unire i puntini disseminati dalla storia. Sullo sfondo un'esigenza: ritrovare l'amore per l'impegno che permetta di costruire un mondo migliore. Non basta dare per la prima volta la propria preferenza in una cabina elettorale, perché oggi serve altro: attenzione, curiosità e voglia di cambiare le cose. "95" è un libro per i diciottenni di oggi e per chi con loro lavora, vive e continua a crescere ogni giorno.

Marco Polo was nicknamed "Marco of the millions" because his Venetian countrymen took the grandiose stories of his travels to be exaggerated, if not outright lies. As he lay dying, his priest, family, and friends offered him a last chance to confess his mendacity, and Marco, it is said, replied "I have not told the half of what I saw and did." Now, in his new novel The Journeyer, Gary Jennings has imagined the half that Marco left unsaid as even more elaborate and adventurous than the tall tales thought to be lies. From the palazzi and back streets of medieval Venice to the sumptuous court of Kublai Khan, from the perfumed sexuality of the Levant to the dangers and rigors of travel along the Silk Road, Marco meets all manner of people, survives all manner of danger, and, insatiably curious, becomes an almost compulsive collector of customs, languages and women. In more than two decades of travel, Marco was variously a merchant, a warrior, a lover, a spy, even a tax collector - but always a journeyer, unflagging in his appetite for new experiences, regretting only what he missed. Here - recreated and reimagined with all the splendor, the love of adventure, the zest for the rare and curious that are Jennings's hallmarks - is the epic account, at once magnificent and delightful, of the greatest real-life adventurer in human history.
