New York Times bestselling author Janet Chapman welcomes you back to Spellbound Falls, where love and magic can conquer anything… After forty years of marriage, Rana Oceanus has done the unthinkable and run away from her mighty, magical husband. Not that she ran very far, having purchased a house in Spellbound Falls right on the shore of the Bottom Sea, where she intends to prepare for the scariest battle of her life. The only flaw in her plan, however, is that she is still very much in love with Titus… Shocked and deeply shaken that his wife really has left him—though he still can’t fathom why—Titus sets out to win her back. But when grand gestures of his esteem don’t seem to further his cause, he conjures up some of his original courtship magic to capture the heart of the beautiful young maiden all over again. Then his plan takes a dangerous turn when Titus discovers that dealing with demons is far threatening than the little secret his very mortal wife has been keeping from him…
Questo primo volume segue il percorso dell'uomo dall'età più antica ﬁno al III millennio a.C. Una prima parte è relativa alla preistoria, la fase che precede la "storia" documentata, e tratta della comparsa dei primi uomini e delle Età paleolitica, mesolitica e neolitica.
Per questa fase è stato necessario rivolgere l'indagine a un'area geograﬁca molto ampia, allo scopo di seguire il lungo e compo sviluppo evolutivo dai primati all'uomo e l'emergere delle prime forme di vita sociale. Ci si affaccia quindi nella protostoria, quando si comincia ad avere la prima documentazione certa delle vicende umane.
L'illustrazione dello sviluppo delle culture più antiche si avvale per la preistoria di materiali e reperti provenienti da varie parti del mondo, laddove le fonti scritte compariranno più tardi e saranno indagate per i periodi successivi: le età "storiche". Un saggio di taglio metodologico sulla storia del pensiero archeologico nel corso del XX secolo aiuta il lettore a partecipare in maniera dinamica alle ricerche e alle scoperte compiute dagli archeologi nel corso di anni di indagini sui materiali che gli antichi ci hanno lasciato. Un gruppo di studiosi, ciascuno con competenze speciﬁche, accompagna il lettore in un viaggio a ritroso nel tempo, attraverso milioni di anni, ﬁno all'emergere della storia.

Intrepid, eccentric Gillette plans to solve the case himself a la Sherlock Holmes.

There are moments when you'll jump. Guaranteed."- The Telegraph "A Sherlock Holmes whodunnit kind of mystery packed with suspects and tinged with suspense and laughter."-London Times

For Joshua, the crisis he faces is much closer to home. He becomes embroiled in the plight of the Next: the super-bright post-humans who are beginning to emerge from their “long childhood” in the community called Happy Landings, located deep in the Long Earth. Ignorance and fear have caused “normal” human society to turn against the Next. A dramatic showdown seems inevitable. . . .
