Mata Hari foi a mulher mais desejada de sua época: a famosa bailarina de danças orientais que chocava e encantava as plateias ao se desnudar nos palcos, a companheira de confidências e de encontros amorosos com os homens ricos e poderosos de seu tempo, a pessoa de passado enigmático que despertava o ciúme e a inveja das damas da aristocracia parisiense. Ela ousou libertar-se do moralismo e dos costumes provincianos das primeiras décadas do século XX e pagou caro por isso.

Time has moved on for Quirke, the world-weary pathologist first encountered in Christine Falls. It is the middle of the 1950s, that low, dishonourable decade; a woman he loved has died, a man he once admired is dying, while the daughter he for so long denied is still finding it hard to accept him as her father. When an old acquaintance approaches him about his wife's apparent suicide, Quirke recognizes trouble but, as always, trouble is something he cannot resist.

O narrador tem uma voz agradável, porém não altera a tom para momentos distintos, como exitação, medo, apreensão, fúria. . .

Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial. Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail. All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. So he tries his best to do his worst - and fails at failing. Now the Magisterium awaits him. It's a place that's both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future.

After angering his father, Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the 4,000-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus' favor. But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed.

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the Earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism?

Cheio de falácias e preconceitos embutidos num discurso de aparência liberal.
Usa a história para justificar suas falacias e não para analisar esta em si.
Não tem estrutura lógica de discurso, chegando no mesmo lugar da partida. Se repete continuamente mudando apenas o senário.

Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising.

Uma releitura da mitologia egípcia em uma aventura adolescente.
Uma pena que o narrador dos personagens não tiveram grande desempenho. O narrador de Carter, fez a mesma interpretação de Perry Jackson e a narradora da Sade exagerou no sotaque e nas expressões de exitação.
