"Eine beeindruckend ungemütliche Lektüre." Times Literary Supplement Viel hat sich nicht verändert, seit John das kleine Tal in den englischen Endlands verlassen hat, um als Lehrer in der Stadt zu leben. Noch immer werden jeden Herbst die Schafe aus dem Moorland zusammengetrieben und noch immer begeht man den Devil's Day. Für die Kinder sind die Rituale und Feierlichkeiten ein großer Spaß, die Älteren wissen noch, was im Jahre 1913 passiert ist, als man den Teufel einmal nicht davongejagt hat. Erst kam ein Blizzard, dann fuhr der Teufel in Mensch und Tier, ließ die Alten an blutigem Husten ersticken und Jüngere erfrieren. Zuletzt war Johns Großvater für die Einhaltung der Bräuche zuständig, doch jetzt ist er tot. Als John mit seiner schwangeren Ehefrau zur Beerdigung anreist, steht der Devil’s Day kurz bevor und merkwürdige Vorfälle häufen sich. "Der neue Meister des Bedrohlichen. Dieser gruselige Nachfolger von Loney unterstreicht, dass sein Autor jemand ist, den man auf dem Schirm haben sollte." Sunday Times "Ein großartig geschriebener Roman, der den Leser rätselnd und verstört zurücklässt. Spannend!" Metro "Hurleys meisterlicher zweiter Roman bestätigt nachdrücklich die Verheißung seines preisgekrönten Debüts." Mail on Sunday "Hurley ist ein hervorragender Erzähler. Er führt dich ins Moor, ins Auge eines Schneesturms, dabei kleine Andeutungen hinterlassend, unheimliche Hinweise auf Teufeleien und dämonische Besessenheit. Dann wechselt er die Richtung, wühlt in den Spuren im Schnee, schnellt dir neue Schurkereien entgegen und lässt dich nachts in den Hügeln zurück." The Times "Die nebulöse Präsenz des Teufels ist so greifbar heraufbeschworen in diesem Roman, dass ich mich manchmal kaum getraut habe aufzusehen, aus Angst er könnte mich vom Stuhl neben mir aus angrinsen." Literary Review "Beunruhigend und atmosphärisch, die Schönheit dieses Romans liegt in seiner Trostlosigkeit." The Lady "Dieser makellos geschriebene Roman schließt sich wie eine feuchte Hand um Ihre Kehle." Daily Mail "Das ist eine Geschichte mit Sog. Das lebendige, sich steigernde Gefühl des Bösen ist eng verwoben mit den Annahmen darüber, wie die dargestellte Art zu leben ist, diese offenbar zeitlose Beziehung zwischen Landbewohnern und Moor." Guardian "Er beschreibt auf wunderschöne Weise eine trostlose Landschaft und das Gefühl, dass etwas Teuflisches und Unerkennbares in den Mooren ist, zwischen den Hügeln und auf den Pfaden." Sunday Express "Der Nachfolger von Loney verbindet Mythen, Landschaft und Horrorelemente mit unheimlicher Wirkung." Financial Times "Hurley ist ein sehr guter Autor, mit Interessen, die ihn leicht abseits des Mainstreams positionieren, ein Abstand, der ihn extrem interessant macht." John Boyne, Irish Times

Because of their popularity, books in series are great vehicles for fostering literacy among all types of readers, who are almost always adamant about reading every title in the series--in series order. Yet traditional information sources on children's and YA literature include very little about series fiction, so librarians often have difficulty managing this literature. This guide will be a rich resource and time-saver for librarians who work with children. It introduces users to the best and most popular fiction series of today, covering more than 1,000 series with over 10,000 titles, appropriate for elementary readers. Annotations also indicate series and titles accepted by some of the popular electronic reading programs (e.g., Accelerated Reading, Reading First). A numbered list of titles in the series follows.

In 1781 the British Empire suffered its most devastating defeat in a war that most believed Britain ought to have won. Common wisdom has held that incompetent military commanders and political leaders in London must have been to blame, their arrogant confidence and outdated tactics proving no match for the innovative and determined Americans. But this is far from the truth. Weaving together the personal stories of ten prominent men who directed the British dimension of the war, Andrew O’Shaughnessy dispels the myths, emerging with a very different and much richer account of the conflict – one driven by able and at times even brilliant leadership. In interlinked biographical chapters, O’Shaughnessy follows the course of the war from the perspectives of King George III, Prime Minister Lord North, military leaders including General Burgoyne, the Earl of Sandwich, and others whose stories shed new light upon our understanding of how the war unfolded. Victories were frequent, and in fact the British conquered every American city at some stage of the Revolutionary War, retaining key strongholds even during the peace negotiations. Taking a wider lens to events, O’Shaughnessy looks past the surrender at Yorktown to British victories against the French and Spanish, demonstrating that, ultimately, many of the men who lost America would go on to save the empire.
