Water Under the Bridge (Loads of Other Stuff Too):1. Auflage Don Barry
It´s been two months since Alice TodHunter Moon - who insists on being called Tod - left her home in the seaside PathFinder village to pursue a life of Magyk in the Castle. Being Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap is tricky, though - there´s loads of new Magyk to learn, and she dearly misses her friends, Oskar and Ferdie. But at least she´s mastered the UnSeen Charm. She´s lucky she has, too - that UnSeen will come in handy when she sets out with Oskar and Ferdie on a perilous journey to retrieve the Egg of the Orm from the Desert of the Singing Sands. If they don´t reach the Egg before it hatches, the new baby Orm could imprint on the evil sorcerer Oraton-Marr, giving him unlimited Magyk to do with what he wishes.... Bursting with humorous and poignant moments, SandRider celebrates the satisfaction of taking charge of one´s path in life - unexpected adventures and all. 1. Language: English.

Ben Aaronovitch has stormed the bestseller list with his superb London crime series. A unique blend of police procedural, loving detail about the greatest character of all, London, and a dash of the supernatural. A mutilated body in Crawley. Another killer on the loose. The prime suspect is one Robert Weil; an associate of the twisted magician known as the Faceless Man? Or just a common or garden serial killer? Before PC Peter Grant can get his head round the case a town planner going under a tube train and a stolen grimoire are adding to his case-load. So far so London. But then Peter gets word of something very odd happening in Elephant and Castle, on an housing estate designed by a nutter, built by charlatans and inhabited by the truly desperate. Is there a connection? And if there is, why oh why did it have to be South of the River? Full of warmth, sly humour and a rich cornucopia of things you never knew about London, Aaronovitch´s series has swiftly added Grant´s magical London to Rebus´ Edinburgh and Morse´s Oxford as a destination of choice for those who love their crime with something a little extra.
