Yarros, Rebecca

Welcome to the brutal and elite world of Basgiath War College ...Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was supposed to enter the Scribe Quadrant, living a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general - also known as her tough-as-talons mother - has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders.But when you're smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away ... because dragons don't bond to 'fragile' humans. They incinerate them.With fewer dragons willing to bond than cadets, most would kill Violet to better their own chances of success. The rest would kill her just for being her mother's daughter - like Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.She'll need every edge her wits can give her just to see the next sunrise.Yet, with every day that passes, the war outside grows more deadly, the kingdom's protective wards are failing, and the death toll continues to rise. Even worse, Violet begins to suspect leadership is hiding a terrible secret.Everyone at Basgiath has an agenda, and every night could be your last. So, sleep with one eye open because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

Presented chronologically, each artist is featured in 2 or 4-page spreads that include brilliant reproductions of their most important works, an illuminating biography, key dates in their career, and informative background on major developments in the art world.

Their father is working in London. Neither parent knows that one of the children will not survive the week.Hamnet is a novel inspired by the son of a famous playwright. It is a story of the bond between twins, and of a marriage pushed to the brink by grief. It is also the story of a kestrel and its mistress, flea that boards a ship in Alexandria, and a glovemaker's son who flouts convention in pursuit of the woman he loves. Above all, it is a tender and unforgettable reimagining of a boy whose life has been all but forgotten, but whose name was given to one of the most celebrated plays ever written.

The secret garden

Burnett, Frances Hodgson

Chiltern creates the most beautiful editions of the World’s finest literature. Your favourite classic titles in a way you have never seen them before, the tactile layers, fine details and beautiful colours of these remarkable covers make these titles feel extra special and will look striking on any shelf.The Secret Garden opens by introducing us to Mary Lennox, a sickly, foul-tempered, unsightly little girl who loves no one and whom no one loves. At the outset of the story, she is living in India with her parents. A dashing army captain and his frivolous, beautiful wife, but is rarely permitted to see them. They have placed her under the constant care of a number of native servants, as they find her too hideous and tiresome to look after. Mary's circumstances are cast into complete upheaval when an outbreak of cholera devastates the Lennox household, leaving no one alive but herself.She is found by a group of soldiers and, after briefly living with an English clergyman and his family, Mary is sent to live in Yorkshire with her maternal uncle, Archibald Craven. Misselthwaite Manor is a sprawling old estate with over one hundred rooms, all of which have been shut up by Archibald Craven. A man whom everyone describes as ''a miserable hunchback,'' Master Craven has been in a state of inconsolable grief ever since the death of his wife ten years before the novel begins. Shortly after arriving at Misselthwaite, Mary hears about a secret garden from Martha Sowerby, her good-natured Yorkshire maidservant. This garden belonged to the late Mistress Craven, after her death, Archibald locked the garden door and buried the key beneath the earth.Mary becomes intensely curious about the secret garden, and determines to find it. This curiosity, along with the vigorous exercise she takes on the moor, begins to have an extremely positive effect upon Mary. She almost immediately becomes less sickly, more engaged with the world, and less foul-tempered. This change is aided by Ben Weatherstaff, a brusque but kindly old gardener, and a robin redbreast who lives in the secret garden. She begins to count these two ''people,'' along with Martha, Dickon Sowerby, and Susan Sowerby, as the friends she has had in her life. Her curiosity is whetted when she hears strange, far-off cries coming from one of the manor's distant rooms.

But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her.

This wise, warm and witty story of identity and self-acceptance sees Alice Oseman on towering form as Georgia and her friends discover that true love isn't limited to romance.

Bolden, Charles F.

Desde agujeros negros hasta exoplanetas, el telescopio Hubble ha permitido investigarlo todo y ha cambiado no sólo la forma de ver la astronomía sino también nuestra propia sensación de estar en el universo. En el 30 aniversario de su lanzamiento a la órbita terrestre baja, esta edición actualizada de Expanding Universe presenta 30 imágenes nuevas, que desvelan otras joyas ocultas en los archivos del Hubble. Las imágenes, de muy alta resolución y tomadas con apenas luz de fondo, han dado respuesta a algunas de las preguntas más fascinantes sobre el tiempo y el espacio y, a su vez, han planteado misterios nuevos, como la extraña ''energía oscura'' que obliga al universo a expandirse a un ritmo cada vez más acelerado. Un ensayo del crítico fotográfico Owen Edwards explica las imágenes desde una perspectiva fotográfica, mientras que una entrevista con Zoltan Levay revela cómo están compuestas. Los astronautas veteranos de la misión Hubble Charles F. Bolden, Jr y John Mace Grunsfeld también ofrecen su experiencia y conocimientos acerca del legado del telescopio y el futuro de la exploración espacial.
