Fifteen-year-old Isabella Rockwell´s bones ache with homesickness. But home is 8000 miles away in northern India, and Isabella is imprisoned in the bitter winter of 19th century London. Sent to England after her father goes missing in a violent battle, Isabella runs away from a life of drudgery and hardship. Rescued from death by a gang of street urchins, Isabella finds the shelter and love she so desperately craves. As an accomplished trickster, she starts to save for her passage home with the money she makes from swindling the rich. After a moment of heroism which surprises even herself, Isabella wakes in Kensington Palace. This is an opportunity too good to miss. If she can steal one of the glowing, priceless paintings, she and her gang will have enough to keep out searing cold and gnawing hunger for the rest of their lives. If Isabella plays her cards right. What she hasn´t reckoned with is her growing fondness for the Princess Alixandrina Victoria Hanover, a kind and lonely girl her own age, and heir to the British throne. Despite the richness of her surroundings, Alix´s life is harsh and without love. When someone poisons Isabella, she realizes it is actually Alix´s life which is under threat. At first Isabella suspects Prince Ernest, a hardened general, and next in line to the throne. Or is it John Conroy, a powerful schemer, in love with Alix´s beautiful spendthrift mother, and desperate to get his hands on Alix´s inheritance? Either way, Isabella´s feelings of responsibility for Alix and her loyalty to the gang who saved her life, are tearing her apart. Instead of taking advantage of Alix, will Isabella puts her own needs aside and cast herself into mortal danger to save her friend? Only the harsh lessons of Isabella´s past can help her decide if she should leave Alix to her fate - a fate tied up with Isabella´s own. A fate which will have consequences far beyond those she could ever have imagined. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alison Larkin.

Circling back to a middle school girl´s apotheosis, if we can call it that, in Otorimonogatari, and the mortal threat it poses to the hero and his girl, this ´´Season Two´´ finale is narrated, for the first time in the series, by a grown-up-but if the word conjures a sense of reliability, of stability and certainty to you, dear reader, then the lesson to take home from this is to trust no one. Because the teller of the tale, who has been summoned by the heroine to defuse the situation, despite having been her nemesis since the very outset of the series, is-in the absence of the equally shady adult, Oshino, who at least was an expert-none other than his college frenemy, the fake ghostbuster who doesn´t believe in ghosts, the shameless swindler Deishu Kaiki. And it is indeed a con that he agrees to perpetrate, uncharacteristically pro bono, on a wrathful god-a mythic undertaking if true, which it may be, when a liar among liars holds that his story, like any other, is all a lie. But maybe not, when a man who claims to be wise in the ways of the world sounds just as self-conscious as his adolescent counterparts or a Russian anti-hero.
A vow made.... For centuries Frang has kept a secret-he´s immortal. ´Tis a curse instead of a blessing, though. His immortality was bestowed upon him to teach him a lesson, and instead of remaining youthful, the curse turned him into the image of an old man. He´s waited for the day he could return to a mortal man, but when that day arrives and he must leave his beloved Druid´s Glen, he suddenly finds he might not want to be mortal after all. A secret kept.... Kenna holds a great secret, one that if discovered could have her burned at the stake. She´s not just a healer, she´s a Druid. ´Tis a secret she has buried deep inside her. Until Frang. He offers freedom in the Druids, a promise too heady to ignore. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ruth Urquhart.
