By Ramona Elena Herbst

Unerwartet und aufgrund einer Verwechslung gerät der Waffenschmied Varim plötzlich in eine Vielzahl sonderbarer und unerklärlicher Geschehnisse, als eines warmen Herbsttages die ungleichen Schwestern Arbell und Sinea auf ihn treffen. Unerklärliche Ereignisse häufen sich als die Ankunft seines Freundes Italus ausbleibt und hinter hervorgehaltener Hand verstärkt über kriegerische Auseinandersetzungen im Norden des Reiches gemunkelt wird.

Doch ohne Antworten auf seine Fragen zu erlangen, findet sich Varim bald darauf auf einer Reise wieder, die ihn tief in das siebenteilige Reich führt und die auf kein gutes Ende hoffen lässt. Der königliche Auftrag, der ihm zugeschrieben wurde, laste schwer auf seinen Schultern und die Kälte des Winters scheint die Reise zusätzlich zu erschweren. Seine Heimat weit hinter sich zurücklassend reitet er bald an der Seite des eigensinnigen Feuerkriegers Peranur durch die wandelnden Landschaften und als der Hüter der Feuer, der ausgerechnet der Vater der anmutigen Sinea ist, von düsteren Kriegern gefangen gehalten wird, überschlagen sich die Ereignisse.

Il cielo ti cerca (Italian Edition) by Richard Bach

By Richard Bach

In questa favola vera e illuminante, Richard Bach racconta, con los angeles limpida semplicità di sempre, una storia di sogni e illusioni, speranza e voglia di libertà.
Jamie Forbes è un pilota che non si stanca mai di volare: ha accumulato dodicimila ore di volo, ha guidato ogni tipo di aereo, e ogni volta che accende il motore prova l. a. stessa magica emozione. Oggi che ha i capelli bianchi, Jamie insegna a volare a quelli che, come lui, sognano di avere le ali. Finché, un mattino di settembre, durante un volo gli giunge il disperato SOS di una donna, Maria: è a bordo di un piccolo aereo e il pilota, suo marito, ha avuto un malore. Jamie le parla through radio, con dolcezza e fermezza, e le dà istruzioni in line with un atterraggio di fortuna. Con l. a. sola forza della mente, l. a. persuade di poter volare: los angeles ipnotizza. Proprio come ha fatto con lui il leggendario illusionista Blacksmith, che molti anni prima lo aveva persuaso a credere di essere prigioniero in una cella di pietra – mentre le mani tremanti di Jamie toccavano solo aria. Soltanto ora, di fronte all’atterraggio miracoloso di Maria, Jamie Forbes capisce quella vecchia lezione. E si rende contro dell’immenso potere della suggestione nelle nostre vite, imparando che dobbiamo essere noi a dare forma alla realtà, e non los angeles realtà, con le sue illusioni e i suoi inganni, a plasmare i nostri sogni e impedirci di viverli davvero. Perché, come il gabbiano Jonathan Livingston, se solo lo vogliamo, possiamo essere tutti liberi di volare.
