Dopo l'apocalisse dei Cento Giorni d'Ombra, il Dominio è stato quasi interamente ricoperto di ghiacci e nevi. Solo le terre più a Sud rimangono temperate e rigogliose, mentre a Nord si muovono popoli in costante lotta per la sopravvivenza, spesso in guerra tra loro. La grande federazione di clan agli ordini di Acrab ha però un sogno molto più grande che la conquista di un pezzo di terra. Lui non vuole solo trovarsi uno spazio all'interno del Dominio, ma vuole rovesciarlo, distruggendo il potere dei maghi detti Camminanti. La loro magia, infatti, sfrutta la sofferenza degli Elementali, che i Camminanti hanno ridotto in schiavitù, mentre Acrab immagina un regno dove umani ed Elementali convivano. La strada per arrivarvi, però, passa attraverso la conquista dei numerosi regni che compongono il Dominio, una cruenta battaglia dopo l'altra. In prima fila nell'esercito di Acrab vi è Myra, che il comandante ha salvato dall'arena degli schiavi e cresciuto come una figlia. La sua abilità con i walud, le spade a forma di mezzaluna, ha assicurato all'esercito di Acrab la vittoria in più di un'occasione. Ora, però, Myra ha un'altra e più personale battaglia da combattere. A differenza di quanto ha sempre creduto, ha scoperto infatti che la sua famiglia non è stata uccisa per una disputa sulla terra, ma per un segreto che porta alla morte chiunque ne venga a conoscenza. Myra parte così alla ricerca della verità, in un lungo viaggio attraverso il Dominio con il solo appoggio di Icenwharth, un drago rinnegato dal suo popolo per aver stretto amicizia con un umano. Battaglia dopo battaglia, incontro dopo incontro attraverso lande desolate e città meravigliose, Myra scoprirà così i contorni di una macchinazione destinata a cambiare il destino del suo mondo e, forse, anche a distruggerlo. Con questo romanzo, la regina del fantasy europeo Licia Troisi dà vita non solo a una nuova saga, ma a un vero e proprio universo dove si mescolano avventura e orrore, magia e sangue, con un'eroina che rimarrà per sempre nel cuore di ogni lettore.

Now, she's enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor's wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband's first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says. As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. And as we read with her, we too become lost in Sheffield's thriller. As the Hastings' ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life. TONY AND SUSAN is a dazzling, eerie, riveting novel about fear and regret, blood and revenge, marriage and creativity. It is simply one of a kind.

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID
