´´Feist constantly amazes.´´ -SF Site ´´Feist has a command of language and a natural talent for keeping the reader turning pages.´´ -Chicago Sun-Times The Chaoswar-the fifth and final Riftwar-is in full, explosive swing in Raymond E. Feist´s A Crown Imperiled, the second book in the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling fantasist´s monumental saga of courage, conflict, and bitter consequence. Once again, Midkemia, the author´s brilliantly conceived fantasy milieu, is in gravest danger from outside invaders-and from treacherous forces within-as the death of a powerful leader throws the world into chaos and threatens all hope of enduring peace. Returning in A Crown Imperiled are some of Feist´s most memorable characters-including the great sorcerer, Pug, who has been a fan favorite since his introduction in the author´s beloved classic, Magician-and the action, as always, comes fast and furious. The Chaoswar Saga is the master fantasist working at the peak of his powers, and further proof why Raymond E. Feist, like Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and Terry Brooks, is one of the true giants of epic fantasy fiction.
The King´s Favorite is a mystery thriller set during one of the most spirited, scandalous, and memorable periods in English history - the Restoration - when the son of an executed king brought monarchy back to England after the repressive years of the Commonwealth. Following the coronation of Charles II came a reopening of the theaters, with the first women performing on the English public stage. What follows is a devastating London plague and fire, a monarch who openly indulged his sexual proclivities, a series of plots against the crown, and the first true collection of female celebrities - as actresses, mistresses, and even orange girls. 1.

When Kati Dunai travels to Budapest to settle her father’s estate, the last thing on her mind is the pursuit of pleasure. She’s a busy international conference planner, her life rooted in Manhattan. But from the moment she sets foot in the city of her father’s youth, it´s pleasure that pursues her. At the thermal bath spa hotel where she´s staying, she meets a Dutchman who reminds her of Béla Dunai, a Hungarian refugee who fled his homeland shortly after its 1956 revolution. Jan Klassen is in Budapest to mend from a motorcycle accident. His scars have healed on the outside, but inside, he cannot forgive himself for the consequences his son now lives with forever. Jan has never met a woman like Kati before. Her blend of New England restraint with gypsy spirit captivates him. While Jan introduces Kati to Budapest´s leisurely pace of life, Kati introduces Jan to her own leisurely pace of sensual exploration as their attraction to each other grows over six magical days. When Kati returns to New York, their relationship continues. But it´s not just an ocean that separates them. Kati´s corporate job with lots of travel is the antithesis of the slow-paced pleasures she enjoyed in her father’s favorite city, one of Europe´s crown jewels. Which will Kati put first - her new career or her new love; a man who reminds her of the father she never fully understood? And is it the Hungarian pleasure-loving side of herself that she really needs to understand before she can offer her heart to the man who has awakened her to who she truly is? 1. Language: English.
