Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series. On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world? Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows. Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

LEGGI IN ANTEPRIMA UN ESTRATTO DEL PRIMO ROMANZO DELLA NUOVA SAGA DI VERONICA ROTH In una galassia lontana, dove la vita degli uomini è dominata dalla violenza e dalla vendetta, ogni essere umano possiede un "donocorrente", ovvero un potere unico e particolare, in grado di determinarne il futuro. Ma mentre la maggior parte degli uomini trae un vantaggio dal dono ricevuto in sorte, Akos e Cyra non possono farlo. Al contrario, i loro doni li hanno resi vulnerabili al controllo altrui. Cyra è la sorella del brutale tiranno Shotet Ryzek. Il suo donocorrente, ovvero la capacità di trasmettere dolore agli altri attraverso il semplice contatto fisico, viene utilizzato dal fratello per controllare il loro popolo e terrorizzare i nemici. Ma Cyra non è soltanto un'arma nelle mani di un tiranno. La verità è che la ragazza è molto più forte e in gamba di quanto Ryzek pensi. Akos appartiene al pacifico popolo dei Thuve, e la lealtà nei confronti della famiglia è assoluta. Quando lui e il fratello vengono catturati dai soldati Shotet di Ryzek, l'unico suo pensiero è di riuscire a liberarlo e a portarlo in salvo, costi quel che costi. Quando poi viene costretto a entrare a far parte del mondo di Cyra, l'ostilità tra i loro due popoli sembra diventare insormontabile, tanto da costringere i due ragazzi a una scelta drammatica e definitiva: aiutarsi a vicenda a sopravvivere o distruggersi l'un l'altro.

A remarkable teen with a photographic memory must alter a dark future she has seen with her own eyes in this New York Times–bestselling “thrill ride” (VOYA). Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life—or so she thinks. But when powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can’t say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she’ll be set for life. Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong, and they break the only rule they were given: Do not look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends—and herself. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “a tense tale of predestination and paranoia, fleshed out with a diverse cast and an intriguing premise,” Future Shock is an ingenious story by Elizabeth Briggs, author of the popular Chasing the Dream series. Briggs combines time-travel science fiction, murder mystery, romance, and page-turning suspense in an electrifying adventure that devoted fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner series will eagerly devour.

Why do people work hard, and take pride in what they do? This book, a philosophically-minded enquiry into practical activity of many different kinds past and present, is about what happens when people try to do a good job. It asks us to think about the true meaning of skill in the 'skills society' and argues that pure competition is a poor way to achieve quality work. Sennett suggests, instead, that there is a craftsman in every human being, which can sometimes be enormously motivating and inspiring - and can also in other circumstances make individuals obsessive and frustrated. The Craftsman shows how history has drawn fault-lines between craftsman and artist, maker and user, technique and expression, practice and theory, and that individuals' pride in their work, as well as modern society in general, suffers from these historical divisions. But the past lives of crafts and craftsmen show us ways of working (using tools, acquiring skills, thinking about materials) which provide rewarding alternative ways for people to utilise their talents. We need to recognise this if motivations are to be understood and lives made as fulfilling as possible.

This is a pioneering work of American cultural history, which connects everyday attitudes and anxieties about failure to lofty ideals of individualism and salesmanship of self. Sandage's storytelling will resonate with all of us as it brings to life forgotten men and women who wrestled with The Loser--the label and the experience--in the days when American capitalism was building a nation of winners.
