Abstract: In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word. A parabatai is your partner in battle; your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other - but they can never fall in love. Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter. She lives for battle. Alongside her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries - the most powerful of supernatural creatures - teeter on the edge of war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries are found murdered in the same way Emma's parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma's chance for revenge and Julian's chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held by the faerie Courts. All they have to do is solve the murders within two weeks . . . and before the murderer targets them. Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents - and can she bear to know the truth?

Abstract: "'Bella?' Edward's soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running.

Abstract: Il romanzo I viaggi di Gulliver venne pubblicato da Jonathan Swift nel 1726, con lo pseudonimo di Lemuel Gulliver. Vi si narrano le vicende e i viaggi del dottor Gulliver, che a causa di diversi naufragi approda in terre inesplorate e incontra popolazioni sconosciute. In realtà, parodiando i racconti di viaggio tanto in voga in quel periodo, Swift compie una feroce critica alla società del tempo e dietro alla trama fantasiosa traspare la sua ironica condanna al sistema politico, ecclesiastico e giudiziario. Il volume è diviso in quattro parti. La prima è la più nota e racconta le avventure di Gulliver sull'isola di Lilliput, abitata da uomini minuscoli, in lotta con gli abitanti della vicina isola di Blefuscu per stabilire il modo più corretto di rompere le uova (allegoria sia della controversia tra Inghilterra e Francia sia delle dispute tra anglicani e cattolici). Nella seconda parte Gulliver viene abbandonato dai compagni di viaggio nel paese di Brobdingnag, dove abitano uomini alti circa 22 metri, mentre la terza parte lo vede viaggiare in terre in cui vivono scienziati inconcludenti, maghi e popoli immortali. Nella quarta parte incontra gli Houyhnhnms, saggi cavalli parlanti cha hanno sottomesso gli Yahoos, creature abbrutite identiche agli umani, per i quali Gulliver prova una profonda repulsione. Rientrato a casa, non riesce più a sopportare l'odore degli uomini e va a vivere per sempre nella stalla dei cavalli.
