A blood-spattered battle between diabolical sorcerers and the monsters they created. In a city so dismal it's known only as "the Hole," a clan of Sorcerers has been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious "experiments" in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they're hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they'll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of "cleaners" into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds. The Hole can be hell - even for powerful sorcerers. In this volume, Nikaido probes deeper into her past in search of answers. The remnants of the En family continue their attempts to revive their slain leader. And Fujita's mission into the heart of enemy territory takes a terrifying turn. Plus: watch Nikaido make gyoza again!
Gutted by the ruthless power brokers known as the Combine, the Rubicon Group is a shadow of its former self, its founder Ekko Solomon missing presumed dead and the members of its private security and intelligence team in hiding, framed for a terrorist atrocity they did not commit. For ex-MI6 officer Marc Dane, his friend and colleague Lucy Keyes, and the survivors of Rubicon's Special Conditions Division, the future is bleak. With no support and no backup, they are living on the edge, and the walls are closing in - so with nothing left to lose, the team will risk everything in a last ditch gambit to strike back at the Combine and bring them down...once and for all. Rising from the ashes of Rubicon's destruction, Marc and the team undertake a high-stakes undercover mission to stop a catastrophic plan to crash the global financial network, with only their cunning and their skills to carry them through. If they succeed, they might just get their lives back. If they fail, it will be the end of everything they've been fighting for...

Liefde tussen swaarde ...
Chantilly Dubois bevind haar teen haar sin as Papillon op 'n seerowerskip. Hulle word egter deur 'n ander seerowerskip oorrompel en sy moet aanskou hoe haar liefdesdrome in bloed voor haar wegsypel. Maar Papillon neem 'n eed dat sy op El CapitÓn sal wraak neem, hoe lank dit ook al duur, haar dag sal kom. Maande lank, oor oseane en selfs aan die Kaap de Goede Hoop, te midde van groot gevare en ontbering, volg sy hierdie man wat haar geluk gesteel het. Sy verontagsaam selfs die Kaapse goewerneur se besluite oor wat verder in haar lewe moet gebeur. El CapitÓn, daarenteen, sit sy soektog voort na die Peregrina, 'n gesogte pŕrel wat die toekomstige Spaanse koningin toekom as deel van haar bruidskat.
Toe hulle paaie weer kruis, moet Papillon teenoor haarself erken dat die wraak wat sy gekoester het stadig maar seker gemengde gevoelens geword het. Hoe anders, in die aangesig van 'n man wat so sterk en dapper sy posisie handhaaf te midde van 'n ruwe klomp seerowers? Is dit daaroor of bloot omdat sy nie langer teen sy manlike aantrekkingskrag kan veg nie? Haat sy hom of het sy hom liefgekry? Dit is die vraag wat Papillon nie beantwoord kry nie.
Time out is an interesting thematic development in the novels of Marita van der Vyver. She had previously investigated the themes of love and being together (eros), and then she worked with the death of a mother-in-the-text. Now she describes the devastating effect of the death of a little daughter on the mother-in-the-text. She delves further into death's reach (thanatos). And though the Hester Human of the title exists in the spell of her child's death the whole time - in a way she is her child too - it is not a sombre title.
**Now available to pre-order, MATRIX, the remarkable new novel from Lauren Groff** _________________________________ 'A really powerful novel' BARACK OBAMA 'Enough betrayal, vengeance and sex to read like one of the Greek tragedies' OBSERVER 'Rich, lyrical and rewarding.' PAULA HAWKINS, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, Guardian Books of the Year Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love, and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but more complicated than it seems from the outside. As the years pass, stunning revelations threaten to destroy everything they've built together; but the strongest marriages are those that survive the greatest blows. Some secrets are better left in the dark. Others must be torn into the open, no matter how dangerous they are. _________________________________ NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER BARACK OBAMA'S BOOK OF THE YEAR A FINALIST FOR THE 2015 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD AMAZON.COM's 2015 BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR _________________________________ 'A lyrical and, at times, astonishingly beautiful account of how little it is possible to know about those closest to us.' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Addictive to read ... Groff has drawn a woman so complex it seems that with every chapter a new layer is revealed, each as deliciously intriguing as the next ... The result is a compelling portrait of an unconventional marriage across two decades.' STYLIST '[A] stunning achievement. The plotting is elegant, intricate and assured . . . it will give you much to savour.' INDEPENDENT 'Absorbing and beautifully written, this is a riveting study of love, power and creativity.' SUNDAY EXPRESS 'A truly special novel ... if you haven't read her before, I'm delighted to take the credit for introducing you to one of your new favourite authors.' THE POOL 'A searing exploration of how far a person will go for love, loyalty and revenge.' TIME 'Rare and impressive... Groff has created a novel of extraordinary and genuine complexity ... The word "ambitious" is often used as code for "overly ambitious", a signal that an author's execution has fallen short. No such hidden message here. Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that delivers - with comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout.'

Dis of sy vir die heel eerste keer kan vˇÚl …
Terwyl Natasha haar huwelik probeer ontbind, klou haar ontroue man onverwags daaraan, beslis nie omdat hy skielik ontdek het hy het haar eintlik lief nie.
Saam met die stuiptrekkings van hierdie huwelik, verskyn ’n ander komplikasie in haar lewe: ’n man wat sy vier jaar gelede op haar wittebrood gesien het en nooit kon vergeet nie. Nooit, ooit sal sy haar weer in ’n huwelik begewe omdat dit die regte ding is om te doen nie, neem sy haar voor, of om iemand anders te behaag.
Dit kos haar egter nie juis oorreding om Marc daarvan te oortuig nie. Hy glo trouens glad nie in die huwelik nie, en omdat hy so dikwels vir sy werk in Londen moet wees, is dit nie eens ’n opsie nie.
Al twee weet hul fisieke aantrekkingskrag kan vir hulle net pyn bring. En al twee vind dit ewe moeilik om van mekaar af weg te bly. Toe gebeur daar iets wat hul lewe totaal omvergooi en hulle moet sterk staan in omstandighede wat nie een van hulle voorsien het nie.
Most people hate me. But everyone remembers me.
