Dopo un'attesa lunga 10 anni Midnight Sun è finalmente arrivato! Stephenie Meyer fa un trionfante ritorno nel mondo di Twilight con questo attesissimo romanzo, in cui la storia d'amore tra Bella e Edward viene raccontata attraverso gli occhi del vampiro. «Vedevo benissimo quanto sarebbe stato facile innamorarsi di lei. Esattamente come cadere: senza sforzo. Impedirmi di amarla era l’opposto, era arrampicarmi su uno strapiombo, una mano dopo l’altra, un’impresa estenuante, come se possedessi soltanto le forze limitate di un umano». Quando Edward Cullen e Bella Swan si sono incontrati in Twilight, una storia d’amore destinata a diventare iconica ha avuto inizio. Ma finora questa storia è stata raccontata soltanto dal punto di vista di Bella. Finalmente, i lettori possono conoscere la versione di Edward in quest’attesissimo nuovo romanzo, Midnight Sun. Vissuta nei panni del bellissimo vampiro, questa storia assume una veste tutta nuova, decisamente più cupa. L’incontro con Bella è la cosa più spaventosa e più intrigante che gli sia mai successa nella sua lunga vita da vampiro. Mentre apprendiamo nuovi, affascinanti dettagli sul suo passato, capiamo perché questa sia la sfida più difficile della sua esistenza. Come può seguire il suo cuore, se ciò significa mettere Bella in pericolo? Con Midnight Sun Stephenie Meyer ci fa tornare in quel mondo che ha incantato milioni di lettori e ci regala un epico romanzo sui piaceri e sulle devastanti conseguenze dell’amore immortale.

The internationally acclaimed author of Blood on Snow and the Harry Hole novels now gives us the tightly wound tale of a man running from retribution, a renegade hitman who goes to ground far above the Arctic circle, where the never-setting sun might slowly drive a man insane. He calls himself Ulf--as good a name as any, he thinks--and the only thing he's looking for is a place where he won't be found by Oslo's most notorious drug lord: the Fisherman. He was once the Fisherman's fixer, but after betraying him, Ulf is now the one his former boss needs fixed--which may not be a problem for a man whose criminal reach is boundless. When Ulf gets off the bus in Kåsund, on Norway's far northeastern border, he sees a "flat, monotonous, bleak landscape . . . the perfect hiding place. Hopefully." The locals--native Sami and followers of a particularly harsh Swedish version of Christianity--seem to accept Ulf's explanation that he's come to hunt, even if he has no gun and the season has yet to start. And a bereaved, taciturn woman and her curious, talkative young son supply him with food, the use of a cabin deep in the woods, a weapon--and companionship that stirs something in him he thought was long dead. But the agonizing wait for the inevitable moment when the Fisherman's henchmen will show--the midnight sun hanging in the sky like an unblinking, all-revealing eye--forces him to question if redemption is at all possible or if, as he's always believed, "hope is a real bastard."

In an adventure of a lifetime, Alexander Armstrong wraps up warm and heads ever north to explore the hostile Arctic winter – the glittering landscape of Scandinavia, the isolated islands of Iceland and Greenland, and the final frontier of Canada and Alaska. Along the way he learns from the Marines how to survive sub-zero temperatures by eating for England, takes a white-knuckle drive along a treacherous 800-mile road that's a river in summer and, with great reluctance, strips off for a dip in the freezing Arctic waters - and that’s all before wrestling Viking-style with a sporting legend called Eva as part of an Icelandic winter festival. Sharing the wonder of the Arctic in his inimitable style, Land of the Midnight Sun is a brilliantly entertaining travelogue that takes readers on an exhilarating and hilarious journey to the farthest reaches of the globe. Through his witty exploration of the region's remarkable landscape and lifestyle, and its even more remarkable people, Armstrong proves himself the ideal travel companion.

This is the first extensive anthology of contemporary Sami literature in English. The Sami are the indigenous people inhabiting Northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia's Kola Peninsula. Twenty-one authors from all four countries are represented with poetry, short stories and excerpts from novels. Many of the authors are award-winners, and some have been included in Nordic and international collections. The readers will be introduced to a variety of themes and experiences, from wolves attacking a reindeer herd to river boat rafting and the making of a shaman drum, from the most tender love poems in Arctic surroundings to the bitter realities in the everyday life of a suppressed minority. The text reflects Sami resilience and selfhood, and expresses the Sami's own perspective on their struggle to preserve traditional values in modern society -- from back cover.
