A William C. Morris Award Winner A New York Times Notable Book An Amazon Best Book of the Year A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year A Shelf Awareness Best Teen Book of the Year Named to BuzzFeed's "Best YA Books of 2016" list! Named to Mashable's "Best YA Book of the Year" list! "Move over, John Green; Zentner is coming for you." —The New York Public Library “Will fill the infinite space that was left in your chest after you finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” —BookRiot.com Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace. The only antidote to all this venom is his friendship with fellow outcasts Travis and Lydia. But as they are starting their senior year, Dill feels the coils of his future tightening around him. Dill’s only escapes are his music and his secret feelings for Lydia—neither of which he is brave enough to share. Graduation feels more like an ending to Dill than a beginning. But even before then, he must cope with another ending—one that will rock his life to the core. In this William C. Morris Award Finalist, debut novelist Jeff Zentner provides an unblinking and at times comic view of the hard realities of growing up in the Bible belt, and an intimate look at the struggles to find one’s true self in the wreckage of the past. “A story about friendship, family and forgiveness, it’s as funny and witty as it is utterly heartbreaking.” —PasteMagazine.com “A brutally honest portrayal of teen life . . . [and] a love letter to the South from a man who really understands it.” —Mashable.com “I adored all three of these characters and the way they talked to and loved one another.”—New York Times

Was, wenn man NICHT einer der Außerwählten ist, wie sie immer in den Büchern beschrieben werden? Wenn man nicht der Held ist, der sonst üblicherweise die Zombies bekämpft, oder die Seelenesser oder was immer gerade das nächste unheilbringende Wesen sein mag, das die Welt bedroht. Was, wenn man einer ist wie Mikey? Der einfach nur seinen Abschluss hinbekommen möchte und zum Schulball gehen und vielleicht irgendwann den Mut aufbringen, Henna um ein Date zu bitten – bevor irgendjemand die Schule in Schutt und Asche legt. Wieder mal. Denn manchmal gibt es stinknormale Probleme, die echt wichtiger sind als der nächste Weltuntergang, und angesichts derer man erkennt, dass das eigene ganz normale Leben absolut einzigartig und außergewöhnlich ist.

The Serpent King eloquently interweaves history and legend with fictional biography. It paints an intriguing picture of life in an ancient land with its own set of rules, customs and beliefs - now sadly lost. This is a sensitive work that accomplishes what good writing should; it affirms one's faith in the human spirit. -Robin Bradford, producer/writer/director, Bright Line Films In the tenth century, Prince Quetzalcoatl leads the Toltec nation in an unprecedented period of artistic and spiritual excellence. Opposed by his half-brother Tezcatlipoca, the prince is overthrown. He regroups the Toltec nation at the pyramids of Teotihuacan, with the help of his female companion and his spiritual guide. The prince is also joined by a force of 100,000 Mexican warriors led by his maternal grandfather, Cloud Serpent. Together they march to Tula, the Toltec capital, to confront the usurpers. Before the prince can seek his ultimate vision quest and view his people's future, the final showdown must take place for control of the Toltec nation. How this battle ends is totally unexpected, but has become legendary to the Mexican people. Author John Osmond is a stone sculptor who has spent 30 years working with the stone carvers of Mexico. He was motivated to write The Serpent King by his love for and involvement with the myth and legend of these people. Originally from New South Wales, Australia, Osmond now lives near Mexico City. His next book is set in modern times and considers the mythology of Quetzalcoatl. Publisher's website: http: //www.eloquentbooks.com/TheSerpentKing.htm

A world without monsters is a dangerous place. A monster hunter is suddenly out of a job when a religious sect supposedly rids the world of them, but is the sect’s noble deed too good to be true? In this sequel to the critically acclaimed first volume The Monster Problem, Hari and Irro must venture out across the desert to seek the aid of the King of Monsters. Monster hunter Irro is perhaps the only person in Kevala making a good living. The city pays him and his tailed assistant, Hari, a bounty for each monster carcass they bring in. But one day a religious sect called The Way of the Sacred Peace comes to Kevala to solve the monster problem by capping the city’s Spirit Fountain. Out of a job with all the monsters gone, Irro and Hari are determined to prove that there is a more sinister plot behind the Sacred Peace’s plan. In Volume Two, Irro and Hari leave the walls of Kevala to seek new lives elsewhere. However, when the Crown Serpent of Kevala tracks them down and informs them that the evils of the Sacred Peace have spread far beyond Kevala’s borders, our heroes decide to return and save the city they love. Before they can do that, though, they must journey across the wastelands to the prison of the Monster King, and release him in exchange for his help.

Finn berechnet die Zeit in Meilen, nicht in Minuten. So erklärt er sich die Welt und so überzeugt er sich davon, wirklich zu sein, nicht eine Romanfigur im Kult-Bestseller seines Vaters. Stets am Rande der Katastrophe – als Kind ist ein totes Pferd von einer Brücke auf ihn gefallen – hat Finn immerhin den besten Freund der Welt: den total irren, aber ganz vortrefflichen Cade. Und dann lernt er Julia kennen, das erste Mädchen, das er liebt. Als Julia wegzieht bricht Finn das Herz. Zusammen mit Cade macht er sich auf eine Reise, die sie nicht – wie geplant – zum College ihrer Wahl führt. Ein unerwarteter Unfall macht sie zu ebenso unerwarteten Helden.
