  • Maigret si mette in viaggio

    Quella gente gli dava sui nervi, c’era poco da fare. Di fronte a loro era nella stessa posizione dell’ultimo arrivato in un club, per esempio, o in una classe, che si sente impacciato perché non conosce ancora le regole, le abitudini, le parole d’ordine, ha vergogna e pensa sempre che gli altri lo prendano in giro. Era convinto che John T. Arnold, così disinvolto, a suo agio con banchieri e re in esilio, a Londra come a Roma, a Berlino come a New York, si fosse divertito della sua goffaggine e l’avesse trattato con una condiscendenza lievemente compassionevole. Al pari di tutti, forse anzi meglio di tanti altri visto il mestiere che faceva, Maigret sapeva come si trattano certi affari e come si vive in certi ambienti.Ma era una conoscenza teorica, non vissuta in prima persona. E c’erano dei particolari che lo disorientavano. Per la prima volta aveva l’occasione di entrare in contatto con un mondo a parte, di cui la gente comune apprende qualcosa solo grazie ai pettegolezzi dei giornali. (Le inchieste di Maigret 56 di 75)

Even young Garion is learning to do socerey. Garion, a farm boy is totally unsuitable for an Imperial Princess. Yet, for some reason she has the urge to brush back his hair, and comfort him.

    The Magician

    Read the second book in the *New York Times* bestselling The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series, perfect for fans of*The Maze Runner* and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
    After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris, the City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is teeming with enemies. Nicollo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He’ s after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell. For every day spent without the Book of Abraham the Mage, they age one year—their magic becoming weaker and their bodies more frail. For Flamel, the Prophesy is becoming more and more clear.
    It’s time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic: Fire Magic. And there’ s only one man who can teach it to her: Flamel’s old student, the Comte de Saint-Germain—alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world’s only hope—if they don’t turn on each other first.

    Magical Mayhem

    Megan desperately needs a job. When a new blender she was demonstrating at a hotel conference center catches on fire, she is unjustly fired. Megan is faced with the prospect of having to go home to her parents’ house yet once again and facing their disapproval and their insistence that she work for a relative in a hardware store or get married to some nice boy and have babies! She would have to call her father, a retired police officer, to come for her in the morning.
    Megan knew she shouldn’t be drinking in the lounge of the hotel when she was all alone, but she wanted to take the edge off of the upset she was feeling. She noticed a man staring at her and she quickly gave him orders to leave her alone. To her shocked surprise he ordered her to stand up and let him look at her. Megan was ready to ask the bartender for help when the man said, “I want you!”
    The look on the young woman’s pretty face told Montague that the girl misunderstood his intentions. “I’m handling this all wrong,” he explained. “I want to hire you. I am a magician and my assistant found out she is pregnant and quit on me to go home and be with her husband. I need an assistant now.” Megan found herself accepting the job, even though she was shocked when she learned that Montague’s method of getting her to concentrate was a damn good spanking!

    The Magic Kingdom of Landover

    The Magic Kingdom of Landover Volume 1: Magic Kingdom For Sale SOLD! – The Black Unicorn – Wizard at Large by Terry Brooks
    Capture the fantasy, thrills, and far-flung adventure of the first three novels in Terry Brooks’s enchanting Magic Kingdom of Landover series–now for the first time in one gripping volume.
    Chicago lawyer Ben Holiday can’t fathom what lies ahead when he purchases Landover–a magical kingdom of chivalry and sorcery–from Meeks, the mysterious seller who placed the ad. Weary and jaded, Ben clings to the ad’s promise: “Escape into your dreams.” But Landover is not the enchanted idyll he expected.
    The kingdom is in ruin. The barons refuse to recognize Ben as King, a dragon is decimating the countryside, and a demon lord has challenged any prospective ruler to a fatal duel. To make matters worse, the Paladin, renowned champion of the Kings of Landover, seems to be merely a legend.
    Ben’s only allies are a bumbling court magician, a talking dog turned court scribe, and the beautiful Willow, who is part girl, part tree. With his friends in tow, Ben sets out to claim the throne. But when Meeks decides he wants Landover back, Ben will face supernatural foes of every stripe to prove himself worthy of the kingship. The question is: Can he survive?

    Magic Kingdom for Sale/Sold

    Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, complete with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement had promised. But after he purchased it for a million dollars, Ben Holiday discovered that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention. Such as the fact that the kingdom was falling into ruin. The barons refused to recognize a king and taxes hadn’t been collected for years. The dragon, Strabo, was laying waste to the countryside, while the evil witch, Nightshade, was plotting to destroy no less than everything. And if that weren’t enough for a prospective king to deal with, Ben soon learned that the Iron Mark, terrible lord of the demons, challenged all pretenders to the throne of Landover to a duel to the death – a duel no mere mortal could hope to win. But Ben Holiday had one human trait that even magic couldn’t overcome. Ben Holiday was stubborn.
