BEHOLD A PALE HORSE is the twenty-second compelling mystery in Peter Tremayne´s much-loved series featuring 7th-century Irish super-sleuth Sister Fidelma
Though trained as a ruthless and efficient killer, Claire barely survived her last assignment. Still reeling from the summoning of the deadly Pale Queen and Roxie´s betrayal, she´s unprepared for Queen Mab´s next demand: to help uncover a new threat to the kingdom, Claire must hunt down the mortal mother she´s never known. But Claire´s divided loyalties may be the least of her worries: her mother, the former star of the Immortal Circus, has other enemies - including the Summer King. To save the Winter Kingdom from the Pale Queen´s dark designs, Claire must attempt to awaken her mother´s hidden magic. But even if she succeeds, is there magic potent enough to protect her from the dangers lurking in the treacherous forests of the Wildness - or from the shadows in her own heart? 1. Language: English.

There´s plenty to write to their new friends about, from a prank-filled slumber party to a not-so-secret puppy - and even a surprise first kiss. In this third book in the beloved Mother-Daughter Book Club series, the girls learn that as long as they have one another - and a good book - they´re ready for whatever eighth grade has in store! 1.

The Summer Kingdom has fallen to the Pale Queen, and it´s Claire´s fault. The Winter Kingdom faces destruction, and it´s her fault. Her mother is dead. Everything is her fault. Once the designated assassin for Queen Mab, Claire is now nothing more than a humiliated mortal, haunted by her own failures. Abandoned by her former allies and stripped of her magic, Claire is banished to the Immortal Circus. In place of this once-vibrant show now stands an empty husk. Performers who should be tethered to it for eternity are leaving, negating Winter´s last hold on the Dream. Someone is targeting Winter´s power by weakening its contracts - even Claire´s own. And it´s not hard to guess who´s behind it. Power or no power, contract or no contract, Claire has an obligation to uphold. And with the fate of the worlds hanging in the balance, she takes on the hit she knows will be her last: the Pale Queen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy McFadden.

Uhtred is a Saxon, cheated of his inheritance and adrift in a world of fire, sword, and treachery. He has to make a choice: whether to fight for the Vikings, who raised him, or for King Alfred the Great of Wessex, who dislikes him. In the late ninth century, Wessex is the last English kingdom. The rest have fallen to the Danish Vikings, a story told in The Last Kingdom, the New York Times best-selling novel in which Uhtred´s tale began. Now the Vikings want to finish England. They assemble the Great Army, whose one ambition is to conquer Wessex. A dispossessed young nobleman married to a woman who hails from Wessex, Uhtred has little love for either, though for King Alfred he has none at all. Yet fate, as Uhtred learns, has its own imperatives, and when the Vikings attack out of a wintry darkness to shatter the last English kingdom, Uhtred finds himself at Alfred´s side. Bernard Cornwell´s The Pale Horseman, like The Last Kingdom, is rooted in the real history of Anglo-Saxon England. It tells the astonishing and true story of how Alfred, forced to become a fugitive in a few square miles of swampland, fights his enemies against overwhelming odds. The king is a pious Christian while Uhtred is a pagan. Alfred is a sickly scholar while Uhtred is an arrogant warrior. Yet the two forge an uneasy alliance that will lead them out of the marshes to the stark hilltop where the last remaining Saxon army will fight for the very existence of England. 1.
