Tudo parecia perfeito, um verdadeiro conto de fadas – menos para a protagonista dessa história. Morrighan é um reino imerso em tradições, histórias e deveres, e a Primeira Filha da Casa Real, uma garota de 17 anos chamada Lia, decidiu fugir de um casamento arranjado que supostamente selaria a paz entre dois reinos através de uma aliança política. O jovem príncipe escolhido se vê então obrigado a atravessar o continente para encontrá-la a qualquer custo. Mas essa se torna também a missão de um temido assassino. Quem a encontrará primeiro? Quando se vê refugiada em um pequeno vilarejo distante – o lugar perfeito para recomeçar – ela procura ser uma pessoa comum, se estabelecendo como garçonete, e escondendo sua vida de realeza. O que Lia não sabe, ao conhecer dois misteriosos rapazes recém-chegados ao vilarejo, é que um deles é o príncipe que fora abandonado e está desesperadamente à sua procura, e o outro, um assassino frio e sedutor enviado para dar um fim à sua breve vida. Lia se encontrará perante traições e segredos que vão desvendar um novo mundo ao seu redor. O romance de Mary E. Pearson evoca culturas do nosso mundo e as transpõe para a história de forma magnífica. Através de uma escrita apaixonante e uma convincente narrativa, o primeiro volume das Crônicas de Amor e Ódio é capaz de mudar a nossa concepção entre o bem e o mal e nos fazer repensar todos os estereótipos aos quais estamos condicionados. É um livro sobre a importância da autodescoberta, do amor, e como ele pode nos enganar. Às vezes, nossas mais belas lembranças são histórias distorcidas pelo tempo. The Kiss of Deception é uma combinação de Jane Austen, Outlander e "A Seleção", de Kiera Cass, que o considera um dos grandes livros desta nova geração de autoras. A obra foi escolhida pelo comitê da Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) como umas das melhores ficções YA de 2015, além de uma das principais fantasias de 2014 pelos leitores no Goodreads.

As a babe in Christ, author Kimi Y. Bivins experienced deep wounds that have taken years to heal. In Overcoming a Broken Heart, she narrates her journey of mending that broken heart throughout the years. She shows how she developed faith through wisdom and contemplation. In this compilation of memoir, poetry, and reflections, Bivins addresses important issues of the church while at the same time providing insight into what it’s like raising a child on one’s own. Overcoming a Broken Heart considers the importance of worship, the impact of relationships, the role of an active father in a child’s life, the goal of working toward God’s purpose in our life, and the responsibility of the church to aid in forgiveness. Poetry, some of which was given to her by the Holy Spirit, offered her a way to overcome her broken heart. She hopes that her work can help others undergoing the same pain that she experienced. With emotional depth, Bivins contemplates her life and those of the church, church leaders, and other Christians through Scripture, poetry, and prayer.

Blameless

No, that kiss in the darkened room or, as at one time, in the shadows of a terrace on a dark night that no eyes could penetrate, was not deception, not the end of enchantment; it was its blossoming, a new creation.

From one of Europe's most revered authors, a tale of one man's obsessive project to collect the instruments of death, evil, and humanity's darkest atrocities in order to oppose them Claudio Magris's searing new novel ruthlessly confronts the human obsession with war and its savagery in every age and every country. His tale centers on a man whose maniacal devotion to the creation of a Museum of War involves both a horrible secret and the hope of redemption. Luisa Brooks, his museum's curator, a descendant of victims of Jewish exile and of black slavery, has a complex dilemma: will the collections she exhibits save humanity from repeating its tragic and violent past? Or might the display of articles of war actually valorize and memorialize evil atrocities? In Blameless Magris affirms his mastery of the novel form, interweaving multiple themes and traveling deftly through history. With a multitude of stories, the author investigates individual sorrow, the societal burden of justice aborted, and the ways in which memory and historical evidence are sabotaged or sometimes salvaged.
