Aus dem Samen, den Merlin einst in die Erde des untergehenden Fincayras setzte, wuchs ein mächtiger Baum und mit ihm eine neue Welt: das magische Avalon. In seinen sieben ausgedehnten Wurzelreichen leben die verschiedensten Geschöpfe in Frieden und Harmonie. Gäbe es da nicht die düstere Prophezeiung der Herrin vom See, nach der in einem sternenlosen Jahr ein Kind geboren werde, von dem 17 Jahre später große Gefahr für das ganze Reich ausgehe. Als sich die Anzeichen mehren, dass sich die Vorhersage erfüllen wird, machen sich drei ungewöhnliche Jugendliche auf die Suche nach dem Ursprung des Unglücks: die freiheitsliebende Elli, eine ehemalige Sklavin und nun angehende Priesterin, Tamwyn, ein heimatloser Waldläufer und Sohn eines Feuerwesens, sowie sein Ziehbruder Scree, der ein sonderbares Geheimnis mit sich zu tragen scheint. Avalons Zukunft liegt in ihren Händen – denn sie ahnen, dass einer von ihnen »das Kind der dunklen Prophezeiung« ist, ein anderer »der wahre Erbe Merlins« und damit Avalons einziger Hoffnungsträger ...

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

Nachdem Anti-Terror-Kämpfer Mitch Rapp die Drahtzieher der grausamen Lockerbie-Anschläge Schuss für Schuss außer Gefecht gesetzt hat, verschlägt ihn sein Feldzug gegen den Terror nach Paris. Dort gerät er in eine tödliche Falle. Neun Leichen, darunter die von Libyens Energieminister, werden in einem der besten Hotels der Stadt aufgefunden. Die Patronen scheinen aus Rapps Waffe abgefeuert worden zu sein. Die US-Regierung kappt sämtliche Verbindungen zu ihrem Topagenten, um einen internationalen diplomatischen Skandal zu vermeiden. Auf sich allein gestellt, in die Enge getrieben und verletzlich wie nie zuvor, läuft Mitch Rapp zur Höchstform auf, um die wahren Schuldigen zu finden. Vince Flynn wird von Lesern und Kritikern als Meister des modernen Polit-Thrillers gefeiert. Dabei begann seine literarische Laufbahn eher holprig: Der Traum von einer Pilotenlaufbahn beim Marine Corps platzte aus gesundheitlichen Gründen. Stattdessen schlug er sich als Immobilienmakler, Marketingassistent und Barkeeper durch. Neben der Arbeit kämpfte er gegen seine Legasthenie und verschlang Bücher seiner Idole Hemingway, Ludlum, Clancy, Tolkien, Vidal und Irving, bevor er selbst mit dem Schreiben begann. Insgesamt 60 Verlage lehnten sein Roman-Debüt ab. Doch Flynn gab nicht auf und veröffentlichte es in Eigenregie. Der Auftakt einer einzigartigen Erfolgsgeschichte: Term Limits wurde ein Verkaufsschlager, ein großer US-Verleger griff zu, die Folgebände waren fortan auf Spitzenpositionen in den Bestseller-Charts abonniert. Der Autor verstarb 2013 im Alter von 47 Jahren infolge einer Krebserkrankung. Fans erinnern sich.

Mit Barack Obama sollte die amerikanische Gesellschaft ihren jahrhundertealten Rassismus überwinden. Am Ende seiner Amtszeit zerschlugen sich die Reste dieser Hoffnung mit der Machtübernahme Donald Trumps, den Ta-Nehisi Coates als "Amerikas ersten weißen Präsidenten" bezeichnet: ein Mann, dessen politische Existenz in der Abgrenzung zu Obama besteht. Coates zeichnet ein bestechend kluges und leidenschaftliches Porträt der Obama-Ära und ihres Vermächtnisses – ein essenzielles Werk zum Verständnis der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft der USA, von einem Autor, dessen eigene Geschichte jener acht Jahre von einem Arbeitsamt in Harlem bis ins Oval Office führte, wo er den Präsidenten interviewte.
