A DESMEDIDA NA MEDIDA e o segundo caderno de anotacoes de Camus.
Entre aforismos ('Levar sua lucidez ate o extase') e instrucoes criativas tambem sinteticas ('Fazer anteceder o romance de fragmentos de jornal'), ganham espaco comentarios de suas leituras filosoficas e fragmentos de prosa, depois aproveitados em suas principais obras.

But now there is a new threat. The Zeniths have attacked their colony and are pushing back the fences! When Kira decides enough is enough, she realizes only when their numbers grow, will they be strong enough to fight for their land. Unfortunately, she discovers not all Nadirs are warm and welcoming in the “Deep South.” When keeping her people safe proves deadly, but uniting the Nadirs in the South becomes deadlier, Kira is forced to make some tough decisions. All the while, deep and dark memories of the facility start to resurface. What did the doctor mean they have big plans for her? And what did he mean by, when she comes of age?
In this story about Tom Morrow, Tom has agreed to help Khrestos find the Isle of Noam and his lost love Raven La Morna. But to the old man Taidg, with his dog Madra, the legend of Raven is well known through stories told round the fireside, of his childhood home, by his mother. He often wished that he could be the old man, with the dog, who it was foretold would witness her castle rise out of the sea when the circle of ravens were seen at the time of the Spring Equinox. His wish was granted early one morning when he saw the ravens circling the very spot of the legend. It was just before he heard a mighty roar as the castle emerged from the sea exactly as his mother had recounted so long ago. That day Taidg's life changed forever. Not only was his wish granted but he became a good and true friend to Raven La Morna who invited him to come and live at the castle of Noam. She pined for Khrestos too. Taidg assured her that one day he would come in a ship that bore large white sails. Khrestos did come, as predicted, but without Tom Morrow. Because of one of the legendary storms whipped up by The Abbess Mariah, Tom had been washed overboard. Luckily he was rescued by Sian, the Mermaid, who took him to Raven Castle under the sea. Khrestos and all on board the ship, The Star of The Sea, thought Tom was lost. At Raven Castle, Tom learned much. He discovered the lost city of Atlantis, amongst others, before being taken to the Isle of Noam much to the chagrin of The Abbess Mariah. The story continues.
Unknown to all but a few, Newton was a practicing alchemist who dabbled with the occult, a tortured, obsessive character who searched for an understanding of the universe by whatever means possible. Sympathetic yet balanced, Michael White's Isaac Newton offers a revelatory picture of Newton as a genius who stood at the point in history where magic ended and science began.
Personal assistant Dominic is a consummate professional. Funny then, that he harbors such unprofessional feelings toward Tristan Maxwell, the CEO of the company. No, not in that way.
The man may be the walking epitome of gorgeousness dressed up in a designer suit. But, Dominic's immune. Unlike most of the workforce, he can see through the pretty facade to the arrogant, self-entitled asshole below. It's lucky then, that the man's easy enough to avoid.
Disaster strikes when Dominic finds himself having to work in close proximity as Tristan's P.A. The man is infuriatingly unflappable, infuriatingly good-humored, and infuriatingly unorthodox. In short, just infuriating. A late-night rescue leading to a drunken pass only complicates matters further, especially with the discovery that Tristan is both straight and engaged. Hatred turns to tolerance, tolerance to friendship, and friendship to mutual passion. One thing's for sure, if Tristan sets his sights on Dominic, there's no way Dominic has the necessary armor or willpower to keep a force of nature like Tristan at bay for long, no matter how unprofessional a relationship with the boss might be. He may just have to revise everything he previously thought and believed in a chance at love.
