Damon’s death changes everything. He and his vampire brother, Stefan, had been locked in a vicious battle for Elena’s heart. Now that he’s gone, Elena and Stefan can finally be together. So why can’t Elena stop dreaming of Damon?As Elena’s feelings for Damon grow, a new darkness is brewing in Fell’s Church. Elena has been to hell and back, but this demon is like nothing she’s ever seen. Its only goal is to kill Elena and everyone she loves.
Um novo ciclo se inicia em Diários do Vampiro. Em Espectro, primeiro volume da nova saga, Caçadores, que dá seqüência à trilogia O Retorno, Elena Gilbert e seus amigos salvaram Fell’s Church dos espíritos malignos determinados a destruí-la. Mas a liberdade da cidade teve um preço: a vida de Damon Salvatore. A morte de Damon muda tudo. Ele e seu irmão, Stefan, disputam o coração de Elena em uma batalha cruel e sanguinolenta – por amor, os três já foram ao inferno e voltaram, literalmente. Agora que Damon se foi, Elena e Stefan podem finalmente ficar juntos. Mas é isso que ela quer? Então por que não para de sonhar com Damon? Tudo que Elena deseja é uma vida normal, mas ela deveria ser a primeira a saber que Fell’s Church nunca poderá ser a mesma. Um novo mal fervilha na cidade; algo ou alguém que parece escolher cuidadosamente suas vítimas está à espreita e desperta as piores emoções de cada um. Elena conhece a escuridão, mas dessa vez o horror não se parece com nada que ela já tenha vivido. E agora ela só tem um irmão Salvatore para protegê-la. L.J. Smith escreveu diversos livros para jovens, entre eles as séries Diários do Vampiro, Círculo Secreto e Mundo das Sombras. Ela é mais feliz quando está em frente da sua lareira em uma cabana em Point Reyes, na Califórnia, ou andando pelas praias da região.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder

The Demon-Haunted World
Author: Carl Sagan
Publisher: Ballantine Books
A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a disaffected American populace “A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for clear thought.”—Los Angeles Times How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions. Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms. Praise for The Demon-Haunted World “Powerful . . . A stirring defense of informed rationality. . . Rich in surprising information and beautiful writing.”—The Washington Post Book World “Compelling.”—USA Today “A clear vision of what good science means and why it makes a difference. . . . A testimonial to the power of science and a warning of the dangers of unrestrained credulity.”—The Sciences “Passionate.”—San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
