Dopo l’ascesa al potere di Hitler, Gerhard Schliemann, la moglie Elsa e i loro due figli, Peter e Susy, abbandonano la Germania per sfuggire alle persecuzioni naziste. Si rifugiano dapprima a Zurigo e poi, quando Gerhard riceve un’offerta dal Dipartimento di Medicina dell’Università di Istanbul, in Turchia. Mentre Susy e Gerhard sono affascinati dalla cultura turca e provano a integrarsi, Elsa e Peter sono invece fortemente ancorati alle origini tedesche. Nella città musulmana le nuove usanze avranno impatti fortissimi sulle loro vite, fino a ridisegnare i loro concetti di patria e appartenenza. In questa potente saga familiare, la Kulin racconta le sfide e le difficoltà di una vita in esilio, le ardue scelte di chi è costretto ad abbracciare un futuro incerto con una valigia piena di speranze. Un romanzo evocativo e commovente al tempo stesso, su un episodio poco noto, scritto con sapiente maestria dall’autrice più influente della letteratura turca.

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed--and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.

Lea Kirino is a “Lifer,” which means that a roll of the genetic dice has given her the potential to live forever—if she does everything right. And Lea is an overachiever. She’s a successful trader on the New York exchange—where instead of stocks, human organs are now bought and sold—she has a beautiful apartment, and a fiancé who rivals her in genetic perfection. And with the right balance of HealthTech™, rigorous juicing, and low-impact exercise, she might never die.

But Lea’s perfect life is turned upside down when she spots her estranged father on a crowded sidewalk. His return marks the beginning of her downfall as she is drawn into his mysterious world of the Suicide Club, a network of powerful individuals and rebels who reject society’s pursuit of immortality, and instead chose to live—and die—on their own terms. In this future world, death is not only taboo; it’s also highly illegal. Soon Lea is forced to choose between a sanitized immortal existence and a short, bittersweet time with a man she has never really known, but who is the only family she has left in the world.

Never trust a guy in spandex.

In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.

That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.

After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.
