The foods of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are accordingly to mainly the seasonal nature and the typical location of each of the three counties in northern Europe. Beat soup: Beat soup looks bring pink and the colour attractive.

Ein unvergessliches magisches Abenteuer!
Witches of Norway, Band 1: Nordlichtzauber - Jennifer Alice Jager

Inhalt:

 

Kunststudentin Elis hat kein glückliches Händchen in Sache Liebe und Schuld daran ist allen voran ihr langgehütetes Geheimnis, denn Elis ist eine Hexe und noch nicht einmal eine gute.

 

Nach dem ihr Leben förmlich am Abgrund angelangt ist flieht sie kurzer Hand nach Norwegen zu weitläufigen Verwanden. Als Kindermädchen engagiert versucht sie dort mehr über sich, ihre Magie und deren Kontrolle zu erfahren. Dabei lernt sie den charismatischen Hexer Stian kennen und sofort ist eine gewisse Anziehungskraft zu spüren.

 

Doch als sie wieder an das wahre Glück zu glauben beginnt, funkt auch wieder ihre Magie dazwischen, denn urplötzlich findet sich Elis im Jahre 1905 wieder und steht vor der Herausforderung den Lauf eines schrecklichen Schicksals zu verändern….

 

Meine Meinung:

 

Der Einstieg in das Buch machte sehr deutlich, welche Probleme auf Elis lasten und zeigt dem Leser zugleich, wie kompliziert es ist ihren Alltag zu meistern ohne eine riesen Katastrophe zu verursachen.  

 

Nicht nur, dass es sofort magisch und mysteriös wird, nein Jennifer Alice Jager spielt sogleich auch mit einer sehr angenehmen, spannenden und knisternden Atmosphäre, die den Leser im Nu in den Bann des Buches und seinen Inhalt zieht.

 

Mit Elis bin ich sofort warm geworden. Sie ist ein starker, taffer und auch etwas sturer Charakter mit dem ich mich auf Anhieb sehr gut verstanden habe. Ihre Emotionen sind sehr greifbar und stark beschrieben, auch was sie in ihr und mit ihrer Umgebung so bewirken.

 

Aber auch die Vielfalt an Nebencharakteren, die man besonders bei der Ankunft in Norwegen so kennen lernt, ist sehr beeindruckend und sie haben alle so ihre Stärken und Schwächen zu verbuchen.

 

Ich muss gestehen, dass ich anfänglich davon ausging, dass ich nach dem Prolog eine Art magische Liebesgeschichte erwartet habe, was im weitesten Sinne auch irgendwie mitschwingt, aber nach Beendigung muss ich gestehen, dass der Inhalt mich total überrascht hat und gegen meine eigentlichen Erwartungen noch viel besser gefiel. Man kann sagen, dass es eine Art von Ahnenforschung ist mit sehr spannenden, mysteriösen und magischen Inhalt.

 

Der Schreibstil ist wundervoll. Er schmückt die Handlung mit Leben und entführt den Leser auf eine atemberaubende Reise. Im richtigen Moment lässt er die Emotionen in einer Farbbracht leuchten, so als könne man sie packen und selbst empfinden, und im nächsten Moment verleiht er dem Leser eine Gänsehaut, die sich nur schwer in Worte fassen lässt.

 

Die Mischung in diesem Buch macht das Ganze so lesenswert und ich bin schon total gespannt, wie Jennifer Alice Jager diesen Auftakt noch toppen will!

 

Das Cover ist der absolute Hammer. Es verspricht mit seinem düsteren und geheimnisvollen Auftreten so einiges und es macht riesen Spaß hinter die Fassade zu schauen.

 

Fazit:

 

Dieser Reihenauftakt ist eine Reise wert! Nicht nur, dass der Leser an der Seite der jungen Protagonisten ein fabelhaftes Abenteuer und wundervolle Landschaft geboten bekommt, so macht der malerische und anschauliche Schreibstil dieses Buch zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis!

Most Secret (Vintage Classics)
Most Secret (Vintage Classics) - Nevil Shute Norway This is another of Nevil Shute's novels set in England during World War II. It's a period of time that fascinates me. Times were terrible, but somehow the British muddled through and eventually entered a new era in which they could once again thrive. The plot is a bit more convoluted than most other Shute books I've read, and also rather more blood thirsty. Not my favorite of his works. But still rather engaging.

Basically we have four protagonists, or perhaps five. Charles Simon is an Englishman who was brought up in France, sent to public school in England, and then returned to work in France as a cement engineer. He is fluent in both French and English and, although his accent and word choices are slightly off, can readily pass as one or the other. When the Germans get too close to where he is working, he manages to escape to England and gets taken on by the military.

Oliver Boden is the son of a wool spinner. He takes rather a fancy to sailing. His life-long friend and, for a short time, spouse, is killed in a German air raid over London. He wants revenge.

Michael Rhodes is the son of a doctor who died while Rhodes was still young. Despite some hard times, he did make it through school and procured a job as a chemist. He loves mixing up concoctions, whether it be skin-restoring face cream, or something more akin to napalm.

John Colvin is a sailor who has bummed around here and there. He was living in Seattle when the war broke out and immediately found his way to England so as to sign up with the Royal Navy.

Then, we have Commander Martin, who is sometimes narrator of the story, and who is nominally the head of the war-time operations described.

So, the British have a French fishing vessel in one of their ports. At the suggestion of Simon, they outfit it for some covert war intrigue. Simon thinks that the people of Brittany will turn against their local German occupation force if some horrific acts of defiance can be accomplished. They decide to use the French fishing vessel to insinuate itself into the fishing fleet and then rain fire on the few German boats "guarding" the fishermen. So, they get the boat outfitted with a flame thrower, and Rhodes concocts a rather deadly pyrotechnic mix to spew onto the Germans. Bowden is the overall head of the operation, and Colvin provides expertise in navigation and general seamanship. Something like that.

Like all Shute books, it was well plotted, rather interesting, and, of course, somewhat nerdy on the science, engineering, and sailing parts. It was a bit more blood thirsty than I would like, but then I spent too much time in Sunday School as a youngster.

The Witches
The Witches - Quentin Blake,Roald Dahl

I could see kids squeeling with delight with this one. I don't think Dahl's books would be right for every kid, but for the ones who have the stomach for it, this is a fine place to start. My favorite line from this: "It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like so long as somebody loves you." Well now, that's certainly some good news!
