Fortsetzung zu Allianz des BlutesBuch 2 in der Serie - BlutspartnerschaftMagier und Vampire haben eine Allianz geschmiedet, die auf Partnerschaften…des Blutes und der Magie gründet. Sie hoffen, damit dem Krieg gegen die dunklen Magier eine entscheidende Wendung geben zu können. Einige Partnerschaften sind ebenso erfolgreich, wie die zwischen Alain Magnier und Orlando St. Clair. Auf andere trifft das nicht zu. Es kommt zu Streit, Vorwürfen und sogar offener Feindschaft zwischen den Partnern, obwohl sie durch ein gemeinsames Ziel verbunden sind. Thierry Dumont ist entschlossen, dem Beispiel seines besten Freundes Alain zu folgen. Er ist mit dem Vampir Sebastien Noyer eine Partnerschaft eingegangen. Obwohl er sich, so kurz nach dem gewaltsamen Tod seiner Frau, in der Nähe des Vampirs - eines Mannes - unbehaglich fühlt. Aber sie stellen fest, dass ihre gemeinsame Verzweiflung die beste Voraussetzung ist, um einen Bund zu schließen. Thierry und Sebastien stellen den Schutz ihres Partners über alles und unterstützen sich vorbehaltlos. Durch die Erfolge der Allianz bestärkt, beschließen das Oberhaupt der Magier und der Chef de la Cour der Vampire, ihr neues Bündnis der Öffentlichkeit bekannt zu machen. Sie erhoffen sich dadurch zusätzliche Unterstützung in ihrem Kampf gegen die dunklen Magier, die das Leben auf der Erde in seiner bisherigen Form zu vernichten drohen. Aber die Allianz erleidet auch Rückschläge, denn die Partnerschaften bringen nicht nur Vorteile mit sich, sondern gefährden auch das magische Gleichgewicht der Erde. Und diese Gefahr könnte sich als größer erweisen, als der Krieg selbst.
An Anishinaabe child and her grandmother explore the natural wonders of each season in this lyrical, bilingual story-poem. In this…lyrical story-poem, written in Anishinaabemowin and English, a child and grandmother explore their surroundings, taking pleasure in the familiar sights that each new season brings. We accompany them through warm summer days full of wildflowers, bees and blueberries, then fall, when bears feast before hibernation and forest mushrooms are ripe for harvest. Winter mornings begin in darkness as deer, mice and other animals search for food, while spring brings green shoots poking through melting snow and the chirping of peepers. Brittany Luby and Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley have created a book inspired by childhood memories of time spent with Knowledge Keepers, observing and living in relationship with the natural world in the place they call home — the northern reaches of Anishinaabewaking, around the Great Lakes.
