Sie gaben ihm alles – aber er wollte mehr! Vor langer Zeit vertrauten die Götter einem großen Krieger drei Talismane an, um diesen gegen die Mächte des Chaos zu wappnen und die Welt der Sterblichen zu beschützen. Aber Daemron wandte sich gegen das Gute – und forderte die Götter selbst heraus. Als Strafe wurde er verbannt und hinter einem magischen Siegel eingesperrt. Um dieses Siegel zu brechen, pflanzt Daemron einen Samen in vier Kinder: die Brut des Feuers. Sobald sie das Siegel niedergerissen und Daemron befreit haben, wird die Welt der Sterblichen unter seiner Rache erzittern ...

Ordinary people don't experience history as it is taught by historians. They live across the convenient chronological divides we impose on the past. The same people who lived through the Civil War and the eradication of slavery also dealt with the hardships of Reconstruction, so why do we almost always treat them separately? In Children of Fire, renowned historian Thomas C. Holt challenges this form to tell the story of generations of African Americans through the lived experience of the subjects themselves, with all of the nuances, ironies, contradictions, and complexities one might expect. Building on seminal books like John Hope Franklin's From Slavery to Freedom and many others, Holt captures the entire African American experience from the moment the first twenty African slaves were sold at Jamestown in 1619. Each chapter focuses on a generation of individuals who shaped the course of American history, hoping for a better life for their children but often confronting the ebb and flow of their civil rights and status within society. Many familiar faces grace these pages—Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. DuBois, Martin Luther King, and Barack Obama—but also some overlooked ones. Figures like Anthony Johnson, a slave who bought his freedom in late seventeenth century Virginia and built a sizable plantation, only to have it stolen away from his children by an increasingly racist court system. Or Frank Moore, a WWI veteran and sharecropper who sued his landlord for unfair practices, but found himself charged with murder after fighting off an angry white posse. Taken together, their stories tell how African Americans fashioned a culture and identity amid the turmoil of four centuries of American history.

Was Charlotte Bronte the dutiful, loving daughter who rose with courage above the blows life dealt her as Mrs Gaskell alleged? Or was she the coldhearted, manipulative woman who may have even had a hand in the deaths of her siblings as James Tully has argued? Did she have a lesbian affair with her close friend Ellen Nussey? Or was she wildly infatuated with her Belgian tutor Monsieur Heger? This carefully researched novel traces the life of the real woman from the time when, as a small girl, she sets out along the Bradford Road to find Paradise to the days when, desperately ill and beginning to distrust everybody, she traces her life through the years. Here is the eager, imaginative child enduring the horrors of a sadistic school, the delight of sharing a secret world with her brother Bramwell. Here is the ambitious, desperately shy girl whose emotions are poured out upon her friends, the young woman who sets out to make her mark on the literary world and whose love-hate feelings for her sisters, the eccentric Emily and the quiet Anne, colour many of her decisions. Here is the woman burning with suppressed sexuality who bursts upon the literary world and shocks Victorian England but submits to a marriage she may have regretted. Here is Charlotte Bronte. Make of her what you will.

Martin Klammer recalls his time helping the children develop their personal writing and rehearse and perform Macbeth. Told with affection and humor, Out, Out, Brief Candle! is an inspiring story of an exceptional African "family." The South African novelist and children's writer Sindiwe Magona says of Out, Out, Brief Candle!: "This is a brave book. The 'voices' of these tender survivors of fire--their struggles, their fortitude--may bring us nearer to becoming more effective in minding the children given to us as a trust. Martin Klammer has brought the unheard cries of those whose lives have been forever altered by the scourge of fire to our ears and eyes. Are we listening? Do we see?"
