Piranesi


Világpremier!A Hollókirály szerzőjének mámorító, hipnotikus új regénye, mely egy álomszerű, alternatív valóságban játszódik.Piranesi háza nem hétköznapi épület. Termei végtelenek, folyosói végeláthatatlanok, falait pedig sok ezer különféle szobor borítja. A labirintusszerű csarnokok közt egy bebörtönzött óceán terül el, hullámok emelkednek mennydörögve a lépcsőházakban, pillanatok alatt árasztva el a termeket. De Piranesi nem fél; ismeri a dagályokat, ahogyan a labirintusban is eligazodik. Élete a ház felfedezéséről szól.Rajta kívül még egy ember él a házban, a Másik nevű férfi, aki hetente kétszer meglátogatja Piranesit, hogy a segítségével a Nagy és Titkos Tudás nyomára bukkanjon. De kutatásai során Piranesi bizonyítékot talál egy harmadik személy létezésére is, és egy szörnyű titokra kezd fény derülni, mely a Piranesi által ismert világon túlra nyit kaput.Susanna Clarke várva várt második regénye lenyűgöző új világba vezeti az olvasót: egy meglepő képekkel és szürreális szépséggel teli végtelen labirintusba, melyet dagályok és felhők kísértenek.

Piranesi


Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has.In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone.Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims?Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous.The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite.

Ladies of Grace Adieu


Faerie is never as far away as you think. Sometimes you find you have crossed an invisible line and must cope, as best you can, with petulant princesses, vengeful owls, ladies who pass their time embroidering terrible fates or with endless paths in deep, dark woods and houses that never appear the same way twice. The heroines and heroes bedevilled by such problems in these fairy tales include a conceited Regency clergyman, an eighteenth-century Jewish doctor and Mary, Queen of Scots, as well as two characters from Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell": Strange himself and the Raven King.

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell


Susanna Clarke's novel is an epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the two magicians who emerge to change its history. In the year 1806, in the midst of the Napoleonic Wars, most people believe magic to have long since disappeared from England -- until the reclusive Mr Norrell reveals his powers and becomes a celebrity overnight. Another practising magician emerges: the young and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's pupil and the two join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic and soon he risks sacrificing not only his partnership with Norrell, but everything else he holds dear.

A hollókirály


"A Hollókirály kétségkívül a legjobb fantasztikus regény az elmútl hetven év terméséből. Szellemes, megindító, ijesztő, túlvilági, valóságos és varázslatos, utazás a fény és árnyék birodalmába." (Neil Gaiman) 1806-ot írunk. Anglia minden erejét lefoglalja a Napóleonnal vívott háború, a gyakorlati mágia pedig már évszázadok óta feledésbe merült a szigetországban. De az egykoron oly nagyszerű varázslás történelmét kutató tudósok egy napon hirtelen felfedezik, hogy mégis van egy varázsló, aki a gyakorlatban igenis használja a mágiát: a Hurtfew apátságban, a világtól elvonultan élő Mr. Norrell. Amikor felkérik, hogy mutassa be tudását, Mr. Norrell varázslatot bocsát a Yorki katedrálisra, mire a szobrok beszélni és énekelni kezdenek. A hír villámgyorsan eljut Anglia utolsó szegletébe is. A mágus pletykáktól övezve Londonba utazik, ahol feltámaszt egy gyönyörű, halott fiatalasszonyt, majd a kormány kérésére beavatkozik a háborúba: szellemhajói halálra rémítik a franciákat. Norrell azonban nem sokáig lesz egyeduralkodó mágus, mert felbukkan a briliáns, fiatal varázsló, Jonathan Strange. A jóképű és vakmerő Strange tökéletes ellentéte az óvatos és körülményes Norrellnek, aki ennek ellenére tanítványául fogadja őt. Strange is bekapcsolódik a franciák ellen vívott háborúba: Wellington Portugáliában harcoló csapatait segíti természetfeletti erejével. Strange-nek azonban nemcsak a hatalma, hanem az ambíciója is megnő. Mániákusan foglalkozni kezd az angol mágia megteremtőjével, a tizenkettedik század ködébe veszett Hollókirállyal. Strange a király keresése közben egyre veszélyesebb és vakmerőbb varázslatokba kezd, és így nemcsak Norrell-lel való barátságát sodorja veszélybe, hanem mindent, ami fontos számára. Susanna Clarke elegáns, szellemes és a legapróbb részletekig
