A Betrayal In Winter

by Daniel Abraham, A Betrayal In Winter Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Betrayal In Winter books, Daniel Abraham delighted fantasy readers with his brilliant, original, and engaging first novel, A Shadow in Summer. Now he has produced an even more powerful sequel, a tragedy as darkly personal and violent as Shakespeare's Macbeth. As a boy, Otah Machi was exiled from his family, Machi's ruling house. Decades later, he has witnessed and been part of world-changing events. Yet he has never returned to Machi. Now his father--the Khai, or ruler, of Machi--is dying and his eldest brother Biitrah has been assassinated, Otah realizes that he must return to Machi, for reasons not even he understands. Tradition dictates that the sons of a dying Khai fall upon each other until only one remains to succeed his father. But something even worse is occurring in Machi. The Galts, an expansive empire, has allied with someone in Machi to bring down the ruling house. Otah is accused, the long-missing brother with an all-too-obvious motive for murder. With the subtlety and wonderful storytelling skill of his first novel, Abraham has created a masterful drama filled with a unique magic, a suspenseful thriller of sexual betrayal, and Machiavellian politics. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Shadow And Betrayal

by Daniel Abraham, Shadow And Betrayal Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Shadow And Betrayal books, A value-priced omnibus of the first two novels of Daniel Abraham's classic Long Price Quartet--groundbreaking, unique fantasy of rare power and originality In this omnibus edition of A Shadow in Summer and A Betrayal in Winter, the aggressively expansionist Galt empire has already conquered lands across a huge continent. But the cities of the Khaiem resist Galt's power with the andat--creatures of magic with godlike powers. Each andat is brought into being by a "poet" who must say the right words and exert the iron will needed to control gods. The industrialized Galt war machine is helpless against the powers of the andat...but political intrigue and deep treachery combine to shift the balance of power in a world of ancient empires and immortal magics. One man, Otah Machi, stands at the crossroads of history in these imaginary world fantasies, the fulcrum around which the wheels of epic history rotate through achingly poignant cycles of life and death, love and betrayal. Shadow and Betrayal marks Daniel Abraham as one of today's most brilliantly original young fantasy writers.

The Betrayal

by Charles Fountain, The Betrayal Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Betrayal books, In the most famous scandal of sports history, eight Chicago White Sox players--including Shoeless Joe Jackson--agreed to throw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for the promise of $20,000 each from gamblers reportedly working for New York mobster Arnold Rothstein. Heavily favored, Chicago lost the Series five games to three. Although rumors of a fix flew while the series was being played, they were largely disregarded by players and the public at large. It wasn't until a year later that a general investigation into baseball gambling reopened the case, and a nationwide scandal emerged. In this book, Charles Fountain offers a full and engaging history of one of baseball's true moments of crisis and hand-wringing, and shows how the scandal changed the way American baseball was both managed and perceived. After an extensive investigation and a trial that became a national morality play, the jury returned not-guilty verdicts for all of the White Sox players in August of 1921. The following day, Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis, baseball's new commissioner, "regardless of the verdicts of juries," banned the eight players for life. And thus the Black Sox entered into American mythology. Guilty or innocent? Guilty and innocent? The country wasn't sure in 1921, and as Fountain shows, we still aren't sure today. But we are continually pulled to the story, because so much of modern sport, and our attitude towards it, springs from the scandal. Fountain traces the Black Sox story from its roots in the gambling culture that pervaded the game in the years surrounding World War I, through the confusing events of the 1919 World Series itself, to the noisy aftermath and trial, and illuminates the moment as baseball's tipping point. Despite the clumsy unfolding of the scandal and trial and the callous treatment of the players involved, the Black Sox saga was a cleansing moment for the sport. It launched the age of the baseball commissioner, as baseball owners hired Landis and surrendered to him the control of their game. Fountain shows how sweeping changes in 1920s triggered by the scandal moved baseball away from its association with gamblers and fixers, and details how American's attitude toward the pastime shifted as they entered into "The Golden Age of Sport." Situating the Black Sox events in the context of later scandals, including those involving Reds manager and player Pete Rose, and the ongoing use of steroids in the game up through the present, Fountain illuminates America's near century-long fascination with the story, and its continuing relevance today.

Meanwhile, in Tsaia, the young king Mikeli grapples with unrest among his own nobility after granting the title and estates of a traitorous magelord to a Verrakaien—who not only possesses the forbidden magic but is a woman.

Winter In Maine

Download Winter In Maine books, »Winter in Maine: Das Buch des Jahres – ein meisterhafter Roman.« Aus der Begründung der Jury zum Buch des Jahres 2008 Der Winter in den Wäldern von Maine ist kalt und einsam. Bisher hat das Julius Winsome nicht gestört, er lebt schon lange allein, und er hat einen treuen Gefährten, seinen Pitbullterrier Hobbes. Als sein Hund eines Nachmittags offenbar absichtlich erschossen wird, bricht Julius’ Welt zusammen. Und er fasst einen erschreckenden Entschluss ... Julius Winsome lebt zurückgezogen in einer Jagdhütte in den Wäldern von Maine. Der Winter steht vor der Tür, er ist allein, aber er hat die über dreitausend Bücher seines Vaters zur Gesellschaft und vor allem seinen Hund Hobbes, ein treuer und verspielter Pitbullterrier. Eines Nachmittags, als er gerade vor dem Feuer sitzt und liest, hört er einen Schuss. Eigentlich nichts Besonderes, denn es ist gerade Jagdsaison. Dennoch wundert sich Winsome, weil der Schuss ganz in seiner Nähe gefallen ist, zu nahe. Als er vor die Tür geht, entdeckt er, dass Hobbes erschossen wurde – offenbar mit Absicht. Der Verlust trifft Julius mit ungeahnter Wucht. Er denkt an all die anderen Verluste in seinem Leben: die Mutter, die er gar nicht kannte, weil sie bei seiner Geburt starb, den Vater, der nie wieder heiratete, der ihn allein großzog und ihm die Sprache Shakespeares beibrachte und jetzt auch schon zwanzig Jahre nicht mehr da ist, an Claire, die einzige Frau in seinem Leben, die ihn einen Sommer lang liebte und dann wieder verschwand. Und jetzt Hobbes, sein letzter wahrer Freund. Am nächsten Tag holt er das Gewehr seines Großvaters aus der Scheune und zieht los, um seinen Hund zu rächen. Er macht Jagd auf die Jäger. Und obwohl diese Rache ebenso sinnlos ist wie die Tat, die ihr zugrundeliegt, verstehen wir diesen einsamen, verzweifelten Mörder, werden seine Komplizen in Eis und Schnee.
