<b> If you enjoy Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl you’ll love the ‘Time Hunters' series, a thrilling adventure saga for children of all ages. </b><br /><br />'The Time Hunters and the Box of Eternity' is the second in the bestselling Time Hunters saga.<br /><br />Becky and Joe Mellor return to Bowen Hall for the half term holidays to find things are as unusual as ever. Of course, that's to be expected when you're sharing a stately home with a dinosaur, a winged horse, two sabre-tooth tigers, Will Scarlet and Bowen Hall's latest resident - a dodo named Deirdre. Things, however, get more intriguing when American time traveller, Bruce Westbrook, arrives with two gold doubloons that seem to possess strange, supernatural powers.<br /><br />So begins a thrilling adventure that leads Becky, Joe, Uncle Percy and Will to 1920s Chicago, Victorian Edinburgh and the 18th Century Caribbean - battling gangsters, pirates, sea-monsters and zombie sharks on a quest for the legendary Pandora's Box ...<br /><br />The clock is still ticking ...<br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for The Time Hunters Series:<br /><br />'From every angle, it’s an excellent work.' <br />KIRKUS REVIEWS (awarded the KIRKUS STAR *)<br /><br />'I really enjoyed reading THE TIME HUNTERS. You start off the action with a bang, drawing the reader in right away. Your writing is strong, and in places has a classic feel....It has terrific potential.' HARPER COLLINS<br /><br />***** Carl Ashmore has written an entertaining book that children will love. READERS FAVOURITE <br /><br />'This is a wonderful adventure. It has the magic of Lewis Carroll and Kenneth Grahame, the inventiveness of Roald Dahl and the writing skill of Rudyard Kipling in my opinion. It is the natural successor to Harry Potter. Brilliant!' </b>

My brother Richard says nobody will believe this story. He’s probably right. I mean, if I was not a part of it, I wouldn’t believe it either.<br />Most people think we are dead. Most of the people we grew up with have been dead for centuries. I know that does sound a bit morbid and fantastic, but this is not a ghost story.<br />Most of it happened during what people call the Wars of the Roses. It’s a strange tale of magic, time travel, action, death and love. <br />Richard and I were there, but not officially.<br />I suppose, the best thing is to let you read it. <br /><br />Edward York

“Die Towenaar se Sirkel” het al die bestanddele vir 'n onmiddellike sukses: sameswerings, teën-sameswerings, raaisels, dapper ridders, en ontluikendede verhoudings oorlaai met gebroke harte, misleiding en verraad. Dit sal sorg vir ure se vermaak, en geskik vir alle ouderdomme. Aanbeveel vir die permanente biblioteek van al fantasie lesers.”<br />--Books En Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos<br /><br />Die #1 Besverkoper, met meer as 500 vyf ster resensies op Amazon!<br /><br />Van #1 Besverkoper skrywer Morgan Rice kom die debuut van ‘n skitterende nuwe fantasie reeks. ‘N SOEKE VAN HELDE (Boek #1 IN DIE TOWENAAR SE SIRKEL) handel oor die epiese mondigwording verhaal van een spesiale seun, ʼn veertien jarige van ‘n klein dorpie op die buitewyke van die Koninkryk van die Ring. Die jongste van vier, die minste gunsteling van sy pa, gehaat deur sy broers, Thorgrin besef dat hy anders is as die ander. Hy droom daarvan om ʼn groot vegter te word, om by die Koning se manne aan te sluit en die Sirkel te beskerm teen die hordes kreature aan die ander kant van die aardtrog. Met sy mondigwording en verbied deur sy pa om te probeer aansluit by die Koning se Legioen, weier hy om nee te aanvaar as antwoord: hy vertrek alleen, vasbeslote om sy weg te dwing tot in die Koning se Hof en ernstig opgeneem te word.<br /><br />Die Koning se Hof wêmel met sy eie familie dramas, magstryd, ambisies, jaloesie, geweld en verraad. Koning MacGil moet ‘n opvolger kies tussen sy kinders, en die antieke Bestemmings Swaard, die bron van al hulle mag, is steeds onaangeraak, wagtend vir die geskose een om op te daag. Thorgrin daag op as ‘’n buitestaander en veg om aanvaarding, en om by die Koning se Legioen aan te sluit. <br /><br />Thorgrin kom tot die besef dat hy geheimsinnige kragte besit wat hy nie verstaan nie, dat hy oor n spesiale geskenk beskik, en ‘’n spesiale bestemming het. Teen alle verwagtinge in raak hy verlief op die koning se dogter en soos hulle verbode liefde ontluik, besef hy dat hy kragtige teenstaanders het. In sy stryd om sin te maak van sy kragte, neem die koning se towenaar hom onder sy vlerk en vertel hom van ‘n moeder wat hy nooit geken het nie, in ‘n land ver weg, anderkant die aardtrog, selfs anderkant die land van die Drake.<br /><br />Voor Thorgrin kan onderneem om uit te gaan en die vegter te word waarna hy hunker, moet hy sy opleiding voltooi. Dit mag egter kortgeknip word, waneer hy aangedrewe word te midde van koningklike sameswerings en teen sameswerings, die tipe wat sy liefde kan bedreig en hom ten gronde laat---en die hele koningkryk met hom.<br /><br />Met sy gesofistikeerde wêreld-bou en karakteriseering, is ‘n SOEKE VAN HELDE, ‘n epiese verhaal van vriende en verliefdes, van mededingers en minnaars, van ridders en drake, van intriges en politieke gekonkel, van mondigwording, van gebroke harte, van misleiding, ambisie en verraad. Dit is n verhaal van eer en moed, van lot en bestemmings, van towery. Dit is ‘n fantasie wat ons in ‘n wêreld inneem wat ons nooit sal vergeet nie en wat verwelkom sal word deur alle ouderdomme en geslagte. Dit is 82, 000 woorde.<br /><br />Boeke #2--#17 in die reeks is ook nou beskikbaar! <br /><br />“(N) vermaaklike epiese fantasie.”<br />-Kirkus Resensies<br /><br />“Die begin van iets merkwaardig is daar.”<br />--San Francisco Boek Resensie<br /><br />“Aksie-belaai... Rice se skrywe is solied en die uitgangspunt interessant.”<br />--Uitgewers Weekliks<br /><br />“n Begeesterde fantasie.... dit is net die begin van wat belowe om ‘n epiese jong volwasse reeks te wees.”<br />---Midweste Boek Resensie

El mundo cuenta con un lado oculto, una cara sobrenatural que nos susurra, que se intuye, pero que muy pocos perciben. La inmensa mayoría de las personas no es consciente de ese lado paranormal... ni de sus riesgos.<br /><br />A veces la gente se topa con esos peligros y desespera, se atemoriza, y no sabe qué hacer ni a quién recurrir. Pero no todo está perdido...<br /><br />Dicen que en Madrid reposa una iglesia muy antigua, cuyo origen es desconocido. Allí, en su interior, frente a una cruz de piedra esculpida en uno de sus muros, se puede alzar una plegaria. También dicen que aquel que no tiene alma la escuchará, y si la fortuna acompaña, el ruego será atendido.<br /><br />Pero exigirá un elevado precio por sus servicios, uno que no todo el mundo está dispuesto a pagar. Mejor será asegurarse de que se quiere contar con él antes de recitar la plegaria.<br /> <br />Eso es lo que dicen.<br /><br />--------------------<br /><br />Este es el tomo cero. El inicio de la historia de La Biblia de los Caídos.<br /><br />Toda la información de la saga está disponible en: http://www.fernandotrujillo.org/#!la-biblia/c20l3<br />

Includes Sir John Tenniel’s classic illustrations, along with a gallery of art from six different artists’ interpretations!<br /><br />Mix equal parts creativity, bewilderment, and complete nonsense and you have Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. On a day that begins like any other, Alice notices a rabbit—a rabbit with a pocket watch. She chases after it and stumbles down a hole… and keeps falling and falling and falling. That’s when things start to get weird. She encounters a bizarre cast of characters — the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, a pipe-smoking caterpillar, the Pigeon, a Duchess, the Cook, and the decapitation-happy Queen of Hearts. It’s an adventure of completely intolerable logic, as witty as it is completely insane.
