Il suo cuore è ancora diviso tra il dolce amore per lo spettro di Michael e quello appassionato per l'affascinante Anthony. Sempre più spesso, Emy si troverà a perdersi nei ricordi della sua vita passata e a fare i conti con i terribili scheletri chiusi nell'armadio della vecchia famiglia Chapman. Dopo aver finalmente scoperto l'identità dell'uomo che la perseguita, per privarla dei suoi poteri e aprire così il varco tra il mondo dei vivi e quello dei morti, Emmanuelle, scavando a fondo nella sua esistenza precedente e scoprendo che Mary aveva stretto alleanza con una strega famosa dell'epoca, capirà infine come deve agire per ritornare finalmente a essere libera. Con l'aiuto della sua migliore amica Ette, escogiterà un piano terribile e pericoloso, che nessuna strega, prima di quel momento, ha mai messo in atto, e che potrebbe sconvolgere per sempre la sua esistenza.Nel secondo e ultimo libro di "Medium Saga", il mistero, l'horror e il thriller si sposano con la passione e un pizzico di eros, con un ritmo incalzante e una trama ricca di colpi di scena.Perché niente, alla fine, è quello che sembra.

Book Two in Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet In 2012, Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend introduced readers to the unforgettable Elena and Lila, whose lifelong friendship provides the backbone for the Neapolitan Novels. The Story of a New Name is the second book in this series. With these books, which the New Yorker's James Wood described as "large, captivating, amiably peopled...a beautiful and delicate tale of confluence and reversal," Ferrante proves herself to be one of Italy's most accomplished storytellers. She writes vividly about a specific neighborhood of Naples from the late-1950s through to the current day and about two remarkable young women who are very much the products of that place and time. Yet in doing so she has created a world in which readers will recognize themselves and has drawn a marvelously nuanced portrait of friendship. In The Story of a New Name, Lila has recently married and made her enterée into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighborhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life's challenges. In these Neapolitan Novels, Elena Ferrante, the acclaimed author of The Days of Abandonment, gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.

Winner of the Alessandro Manzoni Prize for Fiction Venice at the end of the 1500s is an unforgiving city. The Doge rules with an iron fist and the Holy Office harbors suspicions about everything and everyone. Even the walls have eyes. The Republic of Venice watches and listens, then passes judgment swiftly and definitively. In a city where everyone is assumed guilty of something, a young stonemason by the name of Michele has been accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Afraid for his life, he flees the city aboard a galley carrying gold coin, leaving behind his young wife, Bianca. Banished from his home, Michele embarks on a series of extraordinary adventures as the ship he travels on stops in every port and on every island of the Mediterranean. In order to survive this once naïve and immature boy must fast become a man, one possessed of cunning, courage and fortitude. Bianca remains alone in the cruel and treacherous Venice. She faces challenges that are, if anything, even more difficult than those of Michele, and will encounter all the terrors and mysteries that the labyrinthine city holds in its blind alleys and narrow passageways. And she, like Michele, will discover in herself a tenacious and indestructible will to survive. From the Trade Paperback edition.
