The ex-slave ship Freedom travels east across Agora´s southern seas. Talon has set his sights on Belldon Island, where it is said that Akkeri is being kept by the royal family. He plans on sailing as far North as the Strait of Shierdon before heading south by land to rescue his love. But it seems that the gods have different plans for him, as does the King of Shierdon. After an attack at sea by a mysterious and powerful foe, Talon finds himself at the center of a large-scale political game. He soon realizes that if he can play the game right, not only will he have a chance to free Akkeri and the Skomm, but he just might be able to gain his people a land of their own. First, however, he must convince his estranged father to fight beside him against Chieftain Winterthorn and his son, the hated Fylkin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saethon Williams.

Damien Vennar used to be a god. As a technomage, Damien had the power to create entire universes. Then, 500 years ago, he gave it all up. He suspended the nanites that made up his bloodstream and began to age - and eventually die - like anyone else. For centuries, Damien has lived among those who once worshiped him, his real identity fading into myth and legend. Hundreds of years later, when Ceril Bain finds Damien´s old sword buried in his grandfather´s garden, he´s put on the fast-track to follow in Vennar´s footsteps. Over the next six years, Ceril trains as a technomage aboard the Inkwell Sigil, a ship with the ability to travel between dimensions. Just as Ceril is preparing to undergo his rites and finish his training, the Inkwell Sigil loses power. Stranded in space with no way back home, Ceril and four of his classmates are given their final assignment: go into uncharted territory, find a way back home, and bring back the one person who can fix the ship - Damien Vennar himself. While away, Ceril and his team find themselves in a predicament when they confuse an attempt at first contact with an attack and kill two of the world´s winged inhabitants. They are shortly captured and imprisoned, and the only thing keeping them alive is their angel-like captors´ belief they may be the subjects of an ancient prophecy about a group of magic-wielding messiahs. But that´s impossible, isn´t it? 1. Language: English. Narrator: CB Droege. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/044729/bk_acx0_044729_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Ever since the Gilgamesh epic and Homers Odyssey, stories of travel and adventure, whether fictional, factual, or a mix of both, have been crucial to the collective self-definition of human societies. Since the early modern period and the increased frequency of cross-cultural encounters, the literary motif of the journey became a significant ingredient of colonial imagination. The ideology of adventure, crucial to many works of literature, pervades Western discourses of economic expansion and scientific discovery, while anthropologists, seeking to document indigenous story traditions, encountered an oral archive not unlike that of their own. Travelistic texts (by culture heroes, explorers, colonial agents, missionaries, scientific explorers, refugees, and foreign visitors) often provide the semantic repertoire for descriptions of exotic spaces and populations. The knowledge gained through physical encounters during journeys to foreign lands often functions to revise inherited ideas about cultures - those of others as well as ones own. The topics travel and travel writing therefore invite us to address questions of reliability and verifiability. This volume brings together experts from diverse disciplines and places around the globe whose work is concerned with the phenomenon and discourse of travel, transculturation, and the cross-cultural production of knowledge. The contributions reflect the recent shift in travel scholarship toward including the study of ideological conflicts within Europes imperial gaze, as well as attempts at tracing the perspective of Europes others, which frequently challenged colonial certainties and claims to intellectual supremacy.
