Urban industrialized society has collapsed under its own weight, leaving behind people who obey the rules of the Dark One in order not to be punished by his vengeful demons. But the demons seem to mostly overlook the islands where Ben was raised, so it is not until his Master dies that he discovers the world beyond the islands, where gypsies ignore the demons and scorn the hidebound landsmen who worship them. When pious landsmen capture Ben's friend Paddy, will he be able to face the demons of his nightmares to free her?

A Dusk of Demons is a young adult novel by the author of the Tripods trilogy.

Review Date: 2/21/2006


Iron Butterflies is the story of Amelia, an American woman who goes to Germany to clear her grandmother's name. Her grandmother (deceased) had married a foreign prince who had to return to his country (a principality of Germany) and marry a princess. In America, the second marriage was not recognized; in Germany, the first was not recognized. Now the prince is dying and sends for Amelia.

However, Amelia discovers that there is a delicate balance of power in the principality, and that she has become a powerless piece in a game she does not understand. She undergoes a secret midnight visit aided by a clever, loyal maidservant, a mock marriage, a removal to the countryside, a removal to an ancient stone prison with secret passageways, and the ministrations of a crazed worshipper of an old evil. Although the story is dark, it all turns out okay -- quite happily, in fact: Ameila falls in love with her protector in their escape.

Review Date: 8/25/2005
Helpful Score: 1


"America's foremost linguist and perhaps its most controversial political critic brings together both sides of his life and work in this wide-ranging, informal, and highly accessible work. Published in the form of dialogues with Mitsou Ronat, Language and Responsibility begins with the themes Noam Chomsky first made so famous in "The Responsibility of Intellectuals" and ends with a remarkably informative, easily understandable exploration of key issues in modern linguistics....."
