In South Carolina, particularly in Charles Town, in January 1775 preparations for war are well underway, Peggy Monaghan's two brothers drill with the militia, and Peggy's two best friends have much to discuss over tea, except when Peggy is expected to stay a few months each year on her father's indigo plantation. As war clouds gather, a number of the wealthy young South Carolinians sent abroad for their education have left off swashbuckling through society in London and Edinburgh and are coming home to join the Patriot cause. Among them is Ned Forsythe, the youngest brother of Peggy's close friend Anne, but, having been obliged to marry in England, he almost at once goes north to join the Continental Army and escape the wagging tongues of Charles Town. An impending attack by British warships in early summer of 1776 brings him back, and, inevitably he and Peggy fall in love in a world complicated by two more British attacks, the brutal British occupation, and the iron clad code of honor that held sway in the society of the 18th century. 1.

Jasmine and Thyme Hawke are sisters and US Secret Service agents. While investigating what appears to be a simple train robbery along the troubled US/Mexican border, they uncover clues that suggest a larger conspiracy is afoot. An unknown force has discovered the resting place of a long-lost Confederate airship named Zeus. The Hawke Girls know that the aerial monstrosity carried the most powerful weapon ever built, a technology that has never been duplicated and if it falls in to the wrong hands could change the world. Plagued with guilt over their mother's death, Jasmine struggles to keep herself focused on the mission, while her inexperienced younger sister is forced to come to terms with the difficulties of her first mission and her first taste of love. Braving running gun battles, mechanized battlesuits, and aerial warships, the Hawke Girls travel from the American southwest to Cuba, and finally, to the jungles of southern Mexico, but will they find Zeus first or be forced to battle an enemy that wields the power of the gods? 1.

The Paperboy's War
9,90 CHF *

'I reckon throwing that rock through the window of Phelan's butcher shop was one of the best things I ever did. But I didn't think so at the time ...' So begins the Ted Egan story. Old Phelan presented Ted's mother with a bill: TO WINDOW BROKEN BY TEDDY EGAN £5 5s 0d. Ted was going to have to find the money. He got it as a paperboy, shouting 'Herooda paper!' on street corners. Jumping on and off the No. 20 tram rattling out of the city of Melbourne into Coburg. Ducking back to the newsagency to get a Women's Weekly for a woman in the Ladies' lounge of Brown's Hotel. In The Paperboy's War the well-known outback folklorist, singer, songwriter, historian, and television presenter recalls his early days, his priestly vocation, the warmth of family life, the agony of puberty, and Melbourne in the 1940s. A great and terrible war raged, but here we see it from a unique perspective: the paperboy. At home the Yanks were taking over leafy Parkville, the dance floors and the women's hearts. Even - black Yanks! Nights at home would be spent tracing the exploits of brave Timoshenko at Stalingrad, speculating on how 'people who live in paper houses' like the Japanese couldn't cause too much trouble, and gaining an encyclopedic knowledge of divisional shoulder patches, enemy aircraft silhouettes and the classes of warships. Ted Egan rekindles the pride Australians felt for 'the Rats' at Tobruk and those who slugged it out on the Kokoda Trail. But life and dreams go on, war or no war. Every schoolday the excruciatingly beautiful Norma would hop on the tram at The Grove. Br. 'Slick' Edwards at the Christian Brothers would read Man Shy and there arouse a love of words. The return of cousin Frank, the bronzed Anzac from the Middle East, provided a role model. Aunt Mary's tales of the Murchison Goldfields stirred a wish to travel. And there was cousin Bill, who had run away to sea at 15, travelled the world and experienced the war at close quarters. He came back wearing Italian suits and gave the young Ted an idea. He too would be a sailor. Ted would leave Melbourne and go to Brazil, via Darwin. Ted Egan was born in Melbourne and spent the first sixteen years of his life there, the years covered by this book, the first of three telling of his life. He intended to drop in on the Northern Territorians for a month before going off to become a gaucho in South America, but ended up staying in the Territory for more than 40 years. Ted Egan studied under lamplight in the outback, gaining a BA from ANU. He is working on a post-graduate historical account of the clash between Aboriginal and western culture when a group of Japanese fishermen and a white policeman were speared to death in 1932. He learned two Aboriginal languages and has taught Aboriginal Studies at Alice Springs High School. He performs, writes, sings and records his own songs, and collects and records others. He is a television presenter and writer. He is a member of the Prime Minister's Reconciliation Council. Awarded the Order of Australia (AM) in 1993 for 'services to the Aboriginal community and contribution to the literary heritage of Australia through song and verse', he lives and works in Alice Springs.

An eleven-year-old's world is upended by political turmoil in this 'lyrically ambitious tale of exile and reunification” (Kirkus Reviews) from an award-winning poet, based on true events in Chile. Celeste Marconi is a dreamer. She lives peacefully among friends and neighbors and family in the idyllic town of Valparaiso, Chile—until one day when warships are spotted in the harbor and schoolmates start disappearing from class without a word. Celeste doesn't quite know what is happening, but one thing is clear: no one is safe, not anymore. The country has been taken over by a government that declares artists, protestors, and anyone who helps the needy to be considered 'subversive” and dangerous to Chile's future. So Celeste's parents—her educated, generous, kind parents—must go into hiding before they, too, 'disappear.” Before they do, however, they send Celeste to America to protect her. As Celeste adapts to her new life in Maine, she never stops dreaming of Chile. But even after democracy is restored to her home country, questions remain: Will her parents reemerge from hiding? Will she ever be truly safe again? Accented with interior artwork, steeped in the history of Pinochet's catastrophic takeover of Chile, and based on many true events, this multicultural ode to the power of revolution, words, and love is both indelibly brave and heartwrenchingly graceful.

Love Conquers All (Annihilation Series, #1)

From the International Bestselling author, Saxon Andrew, comes the first book in the Annihilation Series, Love Conquers All. Tag, an exceptional young boy, tries to keep his one-of-a-kind skills undetected by leading a normal life under the radar. But one day, an act of compassion leads him to make a decision that alters the course of his life and human history. The Aliance of worlds, which includes Earth as a ruled non-memeber, has decided that humans are to be annihilated as an example to anyone that discovers ancient alien technology, even through there is no proof against them. The Alliance thinks fifty thousand warships can do the job. Unfortunately, the humans are not cooperating with their plan and one young human who has fallen in love will change everything... In this epic story, author Saxon Andrew takes us into the future and the lives of human and nonhuman characters, some of whom we can easily relate to, and others that are a bit different. Along with a hearty dose of battles and spaceships, this is a story that offers humor and a tale of enduring love against the backdrop of galactic war on a grand scale. Excerpt from: Love Conquers All Admiral Dorg sat in his command chair on board the Alliance Flagship, War Weapon and watched his fleet destroying the human's ships. He could hear his bridge crew cheering but couldn't help thinking, 'This is too easy. These ships couldn't have destroyed the Alliance Fleet at the human's colony world.' He looked over his shoulder and said, 'Communications, put a picture of one of the human ships that was just destroyed on my display.' A picture of a small ship appeared and he stared at it for a moment. He pressed a button on his panel and the image of the human ship that had killed two heavy crusiers appeared. He placed it next to the ship that had just been destroyed... they looked nothing alike. His internal alarms went off at full blast. He stood up and yelled, 'ORDER THE FLEET BACK INTO FORMATION!' His crew stopped cheering and looked at him like he was crazy. 'DO IT NOW! WE'RE BEING SET UP FOR A TRAP!' His crew hesitated for just a moment, and then started issueing orders, but that small hesitation proved fatal; the human fleet ripped into the Alliance ships like a tsunami.
