Fire Soldiers

**My name is Rune, and I’m not a coward – it’s just not everyone is meant to be a hero.**
My fire abilities provide great power, but they also mean I’m a danger to those close to me and to the world. For me, hard-won battles have always been accompanied by dire consequences.
The supernatural war has broken out of the underworld and into broad daylight. Fire-wielding terrorists dominate the news, a specialized police force is imprisoning supernaturals without trial, and the kidnapping of the mayor has brought the entire city to boiling point.
But sometimes the only way to win is not to play. To avoid, once more, doing the wrong thing and making everything worse, I must flee. Surely I can do that right, at least.
I just need to ensure my friends are safe first.
*Fire Soldiers* is the third book in *The Sentinels*, a thrilling new urban fantasy series. Mixing mystery, magic, humor, and heart-pounding action, it’s sure to delight fans of *The Dresden Files* and *The Iron Druid Chronicles* who may just find a new favorite hero in Rune Russell.

Fire Serpent

**My name is Rune, and I know everyone makes mistakes; it’s just that mine end up capable of razing a city to the ground.**
A gigantic dragon holds court on the upper levels of a business-district skyscraper (dragons always know where the treasure is located). The fire-breathing serpent turned an entire prison complex into metal sludge, and it holds the country hostage via telepathic control of thousands of supernaturally-powered minions. The city is paralyzed by fear, and city officials are beginning to bend to the creature’s will.
I’m willing to make amends. I’m just understandably hesitant about being used as dragon-bait.

Fire and Fury

**With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the inside story**
**of the most controversial presidency of our time**

The first nine months of Donald Trump’s term were stormy, outrageous – and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.
In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:
— What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
— What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
— Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
— Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
— Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
— What the secret to communicating with Trump is
— What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers
Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff’s *Fire and Fury* shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.
**Recensie(s)**

Na een verrassende verkiezingsoverwinning werd op 20 januari 2017 de New-Yorkse zakenman en tv-persoonlijkheid Donald Trump ingezworen als 45ste president van de Verenigde Staten. Schrijver en journalist Michael Wolff (1953) vertelt in dit boek, dat al voor de publicatie flink wat opschudding veroorzaakte, in verhalende stijl de politieke gebeurtenissen gedurende een groot gedeelte van Trumps eerste jaar in het Witte Huis en geeft een (zeer) kritische analyse van het opmerkelijke functioneren van een wisselvallige, onervaren president en zijn staf. Daarnaast speelt de machtsstrijd tussen topadviseurs Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus en ‘Jarvanka’ (Jared Kushner/ Ivanka Trump) een grote rol in dit boek, dat volgens de auteur deels gebaseerd is op interviews met betrokkenen. Het ontbreken van een bronvermelding was voor verschillende critici reden het waarheidsgehalte van dit boek in twijfel te trekken en de geschiedenis zal moeten uitwijzen of dit klopt, maar de grote lijn is gebaseerd op verifieerbare gebeurtenissen die door Wolff prettig leesbaar in een samenhangend kader zijn geplaatst.A.

Finnegans Wake

Having done the longest day in literature with his monumental Ulysses, James Joyce set himself even greater challenges for his next book — the night. “A nocturnal state…That is what I want to convey: what goes on in a dream, during a dream.” The work, which would exhaust two decades of his life and the odd resources of some sixty languages, culminated in the 1939 publication of Joyce’s final and most revolutionary masterpiece, Finnegans Wake. A story with no real beginning or end (it ends in the middle of a sentence and begins in the middle of the same sentence), this “book of Doublends Jined” is as remarkable for its prose as for its circular structure. Written in a fantantic dream language, forged from polyglot puns and portmanteau words, the Wake features some of Joyce’s most brilliant inventive work. Sixty years after its original publication, it remains, in Anthony Burgess’s words, “a great comic vision, one of the few books of the world that can make us laugh aloud on nearly every page.” For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

A Fighting Chance

A *NEW YORK TIMES* BESTSELLER
**An unlikely political star tells the inspiring story of the two-decade journey that taught her how Washington really works—and really doesn’t—in *A Fighting Chance***
As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher—an ambitious goal, given her family’s modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws?
Thus began an impolite education into the bare-knuckled, often dysfunctional ways of Washington. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis but became a target of the big banks. She came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Finally, at age 62, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive—and watched—Senate race in the country.
In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing book, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class—and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America’s government can and must do better for working families.

Fighting Addiction

Country hat act Markus Kane is pretty skeptical when one of his oldest industry friends calls and asks him to do a joint tour. He and Seb haven’t seen each other in years, not since Markus quit drinking. Maybe not since he and Sebastian Longchamps almost lost their careers to the fact that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
Sebastian is a country-fried Cajun rocker, and he’s been missing Markus ever since they broke up all those years ago. His label thinks he and Markus are a match made in ticket-sales heaven, but Seb knows better. He knows that it won’t take even the tiniest effort for Markus to break his heart all over again, and this time around he has way more to lose.
Time has changed both men, though, and while Markus and Seb try to fight their addictions, the big music industry machine has plans for them that don’t include the quiet life. Can Markus convince Sebastian that there are things more important in life than adrenaline and control? And can Sebastian make Markus understand that all he really wants is his music and his man?
