The population of the island of Turios is mercilessly exterminated by the workings of black magic. Only Bashinoir, badly wounded, his wife Lil, and the Priestess Miril have survived. Determined to give their loved ones a worthy burial, the three soon discover that the corpses have disappeared. Their only hope for salvation now lies in the magical protection of the Temple, as sinister threats continue to pursue them. A shadow spreads over their hearts, dividing and destroying them, as their bodies appear to be fading away. Feeling increasingly isolated, Bashinoir watches as the two women grow closer... In the Kingdom of Isk, wizards and wisemen alike must bow down before the insatiable King Beanor, whose greed for power and war is matched only by his hunger for sex. A young woman he has chosen as his next bride does not, however, wish to surrender her freedom to love and live. Will games and tricks under the sheets turn the tide in a war that has lasted thousands of years?

Sono in molti a credere che lei sia quella giusta, l'Erede della Luce, colei che, in un universo dominato dalla scienza e dalla tecnologia del Presidente Molov, risveglier� la parte pi� profonda degli individui. Ne � convinta la sua compagna Miril, hanno fede in lei la mutante Ipsia e il Maestro Elor e soprattutto gli abitanti delle Terre Libere di Vaior, l'ultimo baluardo di vera libert�. Ma a non credere in s� stessa � proprio Lil, distrutta dai sensi di colpa per la scomparsa del suo mondo e incapace di fare i conti con un destino che le ha gi� portato via quasi tutto. Eppure per Lil non c'� pi� tempo. Nelle Terre Libere nulla � come appare. Valika, sua futura guida spirituale, � la prima ad aver rinnegato gli ideali pi� puri e il fanatismo delle vestali del Santuario, unito alla brama senza fine di beni materiali, minaccia lo scoppio di una guerra fratricida. L'unica soluzione � raggiungere la Sorgente di cui parla un'antica Profezia. Ma a sbarrar la strada a Lil � il peggiore dei pericoli nei quali possa imbattersi un essere vivente, la negazione stessa della vita. E proprio coloro di cui ha pi� bisogno saranno i primi a tradirla.

Amid the turbulence of World War II, a young German woman finds a precarious haven closer to the source of danger than she ever imagined--one that will propel her through the extremes of privilege and terror under Hitler's dictatorship . . . In early 1943, Magda Ritter's parents send her to relatives in Bavaria, hoping to keep her safe from the Allied bombs strafing Berlin. Young German women are expected to do their duty--working for the Reich or marrying to produce strong, healthy children. After an interview with the civil service, Magda is assigned to the Berghof, Hitler's mountain retreat. Only after weeks of training does she learn her assignment: she will be one of several young women tasting the Fuhrer's food, offering herself in sacrifice to keep him from being poisoned. Perched high in the Bavarian Alps, the Berghof seems worlds away from the realities of battle. Though terrified at first, Magda gradually becomes used to her dangerous occupation--though she knows better than to voice her misgivings about the war. But her love for a conspirator within the SS, and her growing awareness of the Reich's atrocities, draw Magda into a plot that will test her wits and loyalty in a quest for safety, freedom, and ultimately, vengeance. Vividly written and ambitious in scope, The Taster examines the harrowing moral dilemmas of war in an emotional story filled with acts of extraordinary courage. Praise for V.S. Alexander's The Magdalen Girls "Fans of Barbara Davis and Ashley Hay will enjoy this tenderhearted story of sinner, saints, and redemption." --Booklist "Alexander has clearly done his homework. Chilling in its realism, his work depicts the improprieties long abandoned by the Catholic Church and only recently acknowledged. Fans of the book and film Philomena will want to read this." --Library Journal
