Mahan´s ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction. Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not! New storylines, new monsters, new dungeons, and a new status: Our High Shaman hates the daily grind! He wants a new apprentice? Then he´d better find someone who has no right to summon Spirits. A new ship? It´s going to be one of a kind! A new love? Well, we´ll have to see, won´t we? 1. Language: English.

Steven Bauer always thought chess was just a game.... Until the sultry brunette in the little black dress did her best to incinerate him. Yesterday, he was just an ordinary guy. Today, he is the White Pawn, a combatant in a nightmarish game of chess where people are the pieces, and the world is at stake. To survive the deadly Black Queen, Steven must pull together the rest of his pieces. The Knight, a grieving teenage boy caught up in a web of gang violence. The Queen, a young woman at death’s door, her body ravaged by leukemia. The Bishop, a disgraced priest haunted by visions of the game. The Rook, a suicidal drunk reeling atop a storm-ridden skyscraper. But Steven isn’t the only one looking for his team, because the Black Queen already has her pieces assembled.... Pawn’s Gambit is the first book in The Pawn Strategem, a new contemporary fantasy series from author Darin Kennedy (The Mussorgsky Riddle). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Wayne.

They are the most daring, courageous, fool-hardy crew ever assembled under one flag. Chief among them are Henri Delacrois, the French archer; Ralf Gunarson, the blonde Viking giant; the lovely but deadly female samurai Tishimi Osara; Omar, the cantankerous first mate; and Haroun, the eagle-eyed youth who mans the towering crow´s nest of the magnificent Blue Nymph. All pledged to follow their captain, the most famous seagoing adventurer of all time, Sinbad El Ari. Now they return in four brand new fantasy tales by Joe Bonadonna, Ralph L. Angelo, Jeff Fournier, and I.A. Watson. Thrills and danger await on colorful exotic shores as the crew of the Blue Nymph search for the Golden Fleece, battle a Scorpion God, and Sinbad alone must defeat an evil djin in a game of chess for the life of a beautiful princess.

This urban fantasy set contains the first three books of the Preternatural Affairs series: Witch Hunt, Silver Bullet, and Hotter Than Helltown. My name´s Cesar Hawke. I´m a witch working for a division of the government you´ve never heard about. The world´s not what everyone thinks it is - unless you think that our world´s a pawn in a game of chess between Heaven and Hell, and riddled with as much magic and wonder as it is with evil. In that case, the world is exactly what you think. My place of employment - the Office of Preternatural Affairs - takes a modern approach to an ages-old problem. It used to be that inquisitors would burn demons and the people in league with them. Now we get warrants, perform arrests, put the suspects on trial, and send guilty parties back to the Hell from whence they came with the travel forms filled out in triplicate. This stuff I do with the OPA, it saves lives on most days. Most days, I said. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.

´´You mean we´re truly going to play for the fate of the Universe?´´ ´´Exactly,´´ the Overlord said, ´´a forty-one game chess match to be broadcast throughout all civilized sectors of your Universe so that everyone can witness it.´´ ´´But why chess? Why me? Why this planet?´´ ´´Because chess is ideal for such a final judgment; it is a methodical game with absolutely no element of luck, and therefore there can be no complaints by the loser. Chess is known only to your plant, and you and your opponent are the most evenly matched living players. Good against evil. No other chess players are so close in true potential abilities. There is no other reason.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Jessen. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/010824/bk_adbl_010824_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
You must let blood to get blood. New Mexico, 1867. As consort to resurrected Mayan goddess Ixchel, hexslinger ´´Reverend´´ Asher Rook has founded ´´Hex City´´, the first place in all of human history where magicians can live and work together safely. But this tenuous peace is threatened by the approach of Rook´s former lover, Chess Pargeter, bent on revenge over Rook´s betrayal, as he kills his way toward the very same spot, dragging Pinkerton agent-turned-outlaw Ed Morrow along with him. Because Chess, sacrificed in Ixchel´s name, has become far more than just a hex: his very presence has torn a crack in the world, remaking everything around him. And as the cycle of Chess´s power approaches its climax, Chess, Morrow, and a young spiritualist named Yancey Colder - caught up in Chess´s vendetta - will all have to shed yet more blood as they face down his mysterious patron demon, known only as the Enemy . . . along with every other enemy Chess has already made along the way. 1.
