For over 100 years the Civic Order and the Alchemic Order have held a shaky truce, peppered by violence and mistrust. But when Koa, a Civilian-born insurgency, bombs an Alchemist summit, the truce is shattered. Now, Koa is rising. War is coming. And all 16-year-old Zeika Anon can do is keep moving as she watches the lords of alchemy slowly overtake her home. But when clashes between Koa and the Alchemic Order put a final, deadly squeeze on the remaining Civilian territories, Zeika finds herself in the crosshairs of fate. She must walk the line between survival and rebellion against the Alchemists. On one side of the line awaits death. On the other, the betrayal of her civilization, her loyalties, and herself. The first volume in The Books of Ezekiel series, The Given is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic survival tale, set in the streets of a dying city that has been crushed by alchemic law. Layered with the elements of gritty crime drama, dark urban fantasy, hard sci-fi, and horror, The Given is a wild ride to the end of a young girl's sanity as she struggles with an impossible choice: to keep one step ahead of a war...or to be consumed by it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael T. Bradley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/041382/bk_acx0_041382_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Amerikanistik), course: 20th Century Adoles/Scenes, language: English, abstract: The term 'adolescence' describes the phase of life between late childhood and adulthood. It contains not only the physical maturation but particularly the psychological and mental development from a child to an autonomous, responsible adult. Also literature has ever and anon created adolescent protagonists who have to deal with typical problems of coming of age. A prime example for such a novel of initiation is 'The Catcher in the Rye'. This novel nearly fulfils all aspects a novel of initiation has to deal with. Although 'The Catcher in the Rye' was published sixty years ago, it still finds general approval to people all over the world. Another very successful novel of initiation is DBC Pierre¿s 'Vernon God Little' which was written in 2003 and won the Man Booker Prize in the same year. The Daily Mail described the 15-year old protagonist Vernon Gregory Little as 'one of the most engaging narrators since Catcher in the Rye¿s Holden Caulfield'1 and Sam Sifton from the New York Times says that Vernon Gregory Little is a 'Holden Caulfield on Ritalin'2. There is no doubt that these two novels have considerable similarities: In both novels, the main character is a male adolescent who tells his story as a first person narrator. Both stories have their sets in the United States and both deal with issues concerning adolescence. I want to research which further similarities these two books have, in particular concerning adolescence. Therefore I am going to take a deeper look into typical issues these two adolescents have to deal with. First of all, I am going to give a short overview about the plot to the reader so the reader understands further issues of my work. Then, I will examine typical signs for adolescence like external and internal conflicts and language use of the protagonists of 'Vernon God Little' and 'The Catcher in the Rye' as well as the historical context of these two books. I am going to examine all these aspects in order to find out how the two novels explore the problems associated with adolescence and the narrators¿ messages regarding society.

Pessoa wrote a large number of poems in English, some of them in the guise of early heteronyms (such as Alexander Search and Charles Robert Anon) which prove to be fascinating precursors of the later, modernist work in Portuguese. While not the equal of the masterly Caeiro, Campos, Reis or Pessoa-himself, these poems deserve to be better known and at least available in the English-speaking world. Pessoa was educated in English in Durban, as the stepson of a Portuguese diplomat, and was completely bilingual. He translated several books from English for Portuguese publishing houses. The sometimes startlingly frank content of the earlier English poems - published privately in Lisbon - may well have prevented their wider dissemination in more prudish British circles. What is not so well-known is that Pessoa continued to write poetry in a bookish form of English throughout his life and this volume is an attempt to show the nature of that work to its originally intended audience - an anglophone readership.
