Machen sie ihre Drohungen wahr, wird das zahllose unschuldige Menschen das Leben kosten. Und das könnten wir verhindern, indem wir ein einziges Leben aufs Spiel setzen. Day und June haben so viel geopfert für die Republik und füreinander. Nun scheint das Land endlich vor einem Neubeginn zu stehen. June arbeitet mit dem Elektor und führenden Politikern zusammen, während Day einen hohen Rang beim Militär bekleidet. Keiner der beiden hätte die Umstände vorhersehen können, unter denen sie wieder zusammenfinden. Gerade als ein Friedensabkommen unmittelbar bevorsteht, drohen Anschuldigungen einen erneuten Krieg heraufzubeschwören. Um das Leben tausender Menschen zu retten, soll June nun Day darum bitten, das zu opfern, was ihm am meisten bedeutet ... Das packende, actionreiche Finale der New-York-Times-Bestseller-Trilogie! Im Abschlussband der Dystopie treffen große Hoffnung und große Verzweiflung aufeinander und bis zuletzt bleibt völlig offen, ob ein Happy End für Day und June und ihre große Liebe möglich ist. "Berstende Sterne" ist der letzte Band der Legend-Trilogie.

“Robin Hood assured them that he had detached a party in the direction of the road they were to pass, who would not fail to discover and apprize them of any secret ambuscade; and that he had little doubt they would find the ways secure, or, if otherwise, would receive such timely notice of the danger as would enable them to fall back on a strong troop of archers, with which he himself proposed to follow on the same route.”

“Idle reader: thou mayest believe me without any oath that I would this book, as it is the child of my brain, were the fairest, gayest, and cleverest that could be imagined. But I could not counteract Nature's law that everything shall beget its like; and what, then, could this sterile wit of mine beget but the story of a dry, shriveled, whimsical offspring, full of thoughts of all sorts and such as never came into any other imagination—just what might be begotten in a prison, where every misery is lodged and every doleful sound makes its dwelling? Tranquility, a cheerful retreat, pleasant fields, bright skies, murmuring brooks, peace of mind, these are the things that go far to make even the most barren muses fertile, and bring into the world births that fill it with wonder and delight.” “Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes was first published In two parts, 1605 and 1615. It is the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. The story of “Don Quixote” follows the adventures of a noble (hidalgo) named Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to become a knight-errant.

In this verse translation of Chrétien de Troyes's Lancelot, Ruth Harwood Cline revives the original story of the immortal love affair between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere, a tale that has spawned interpretations ranging from Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur to Lerner and Lowe's Camelot. By remaining faithful to Chrétien's highly structured form, Cline preserves the pace, the pungency of proverbial expressions, and the work's poetical devices and word play in translating this archetypal tale of courtly love from Old French into modern English. Cline's introduction--containing a description of Arthur in history and literature, a discussion of courtly love, and an account of the continuations of the story of Lancelot and Guinevere--makes Lancelot an ideal classroom text.
