Eagle Ridge was supposed to be a safe haven for the hybrids, but now it’s turning into a Glycon-infested hell. The presence of the horrible mutants is bad enough, but then a human witnesses an attack. Now the hybrids are at risk of being exposed to the outside world and the ruth Horatius Group. Allison’s proud to be mayor of Eagle Ridge and takes her job seriously. She’s very concerned about protecting the citizens of her town, especially with all the violent attacks that have been occurring. Though she’s convinced a wild animal is involved, she also can’t deny having seen a strange monster. Hybrid Quintus is still finding his place among the hybrids, but is comfortable serving as a spy. When he’s sent to find out how much Allison might have seen, he’s surprised to find that she may be his fated mate. Despite the raging attraction between the two, the shocking truth behind why so many Glycons are in the area may cost them their lives before they can even worry about a future relationship.
El diplomático Enric Mantey aparece muerto en su despacho. La herida de su costado recuerda, para desconcierto de policía y médicos, a la dentellada de un tiburón. Sólo el biólogo y erudito John Baldinger parece capaz de encontrar una respuesta, aunque ello signifique traspasar la frontera de lo creíble y adentrarse en un mundo colmado de misterios extraordinarios, personajes sorprendentes y lugares ocultos entre las sombras de la capital. La Costilla de Caín transporta al lector a las calles del Madrid de principios del s.XX, donde los estrechos callejones y los quinqués a media luz envuelven un misterio tan antiguo como la propia existencia. Una aventura más asombrosa a cada capítulo; una historia fuera de lo corriente.
Slavery After Rome, 500-1100 offers a substantially new interpretation of what happened to slavery in Western Europe in the centuries that followed the fall of the Roman Empire. The periods at either end of the early middle ages are associated with iconic forms of unfreedom: Roman slavery at one end; at the other, the serfdom of the twelfth century and beyond, together with, in Southern Europe, a revitalized urban chattel slavery dealing chiefly in non-Christians. How and why this major change took place in the intervening period has been a long-standing puzzle. This study picks up the various threads linking this transformation across the centuries, and situates them within the full context of what slavery and unfreedom were being used for in the early middle ages. This volume adopts a broad comparative perspective, covering different regions of Western Europe over six centuries, to try to answer the following questions: who might become enslaved and why? What did this mean for them, and for their lords? What made people opt for certain ways of exploiting unfree labor over others in different times and places, and is it possible, underneath all this diversity, to identify some coherent trajectories of historical change?
