It was a glorious day. Farts had signed a peace treaty with the Burps. The celebration included fart bubbles and confartti flying from the gassiest hills on Fartville. Trumpets blasted out of butts. Farts shook hands with Burps. Everybody was happy until a new invader came flying from the sky. They were snotty, gooey, slimy Boogers that would stop at nothing until they controlled Gas Mountain. Whoever controls the fart gasses, controls it all. Can Mayor Donald Fart and his Monster Farts defeat the evil wizard, Severe Cold, and his Booger minions, in the second epic Monster Fart Wars battle? If you love farts, boogers, burps, and pimples, then you do not want to miss Monster Fart Wars II. A can´t-stop-laughing middle-school book that will make you feel just gross! 1. Language: English.

The final instalment in the internationally bestselling Delirium trilogy. The thrilling climax to one of the most eagerly awaited series since The Hunger Games and Twilight. ´´I´ve started dreaming of Portland again. Like a monster from one of the ghost stories we used to tell as kids, the past has been finding its way in. It bubbles up through the cracks when I´m not paying attention, and pulls at me with greedy fingers. This is what they warned me about for all those years: the heavy weight in my chest, the nightmare-fragments that follow me even in waking life.I warned you, Aunt Carol says in my head. We told you, Rachel says...” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Drew. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hodd/000545/bk_hodd_000545_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

LA gets a little hotter when there´s blood on the streets.... This special edition of Shifter Legacies combines books one and two, and contains a long journey of dark paranormal urban fantasy. Way of the Wolf: Dr. David Lephmann lived a normal existence until he was attacked by a shifter. Thrust into a world of violence and mistrust, he must battle for a place among his new people. Only strange new alliances can keep him alive. A powerful master vampire may help him take his revenge on the shifter who destroyed his life. There´s only one distraction from his mission: an intriguing shifter woman who opens up his world to werewolf romance. With no way back to his old life, David has no choice but to bend to the rules of his new people. Can he survive the challenge? Wolf´s Revenge: Los Angeles - a city of vampires and shifters where violence simmers just below the surface. LAPD Lieutenant Christine Humber has worked for years in the city´s most violent district, nicknamed Monster Central. When Chris examines the murder scene of a werewolf, a particularly hard-to-kill shifter, she doesn´t find a shred of evidence. A serial killer was just what the city needed to make tensions start to bubble over. Threatened by the chance of a new urban revolt, the FBI steps in and tries to take the case. Chris reluctantly teams with the overly slim and beautiful Agent Flint to maintain the fragile peace. As the shifter body count grows, Chris and Flint must find answers before war and death spill out onto the streets. If you like shifters or the work of Charlaine Harris and Jim Butcher, you´ll love these tantalizingly action-packed books. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mikael Naramore.

Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis.

Seventeen-year-old James Daly´s father bought a house in small-town Edington, Georgia to go with a promotion at his Atlanta law firm, only to lose his job when the housing bubble popped and the economy tanked. Now James has to work at the Edington Best Buy to help pay the mortgage they´re underwater on. He can´t wait until he turns 18 and can leave Edington behind forever. But when a local boy challenges him to an ATV race near a tree farm most people avoid, things get much worse. James´ rival is dismembered alive by a tentacled horror emerging from a nearby pond. The monstrosity has been worshiped by a murderous coven since before the Civil War, and its devotees don´t take kindly to their secrets being threatened. Now with the aid of Amber Webb, a local girl he doesn´t like liking, and a renegade cult member, James must fight to avoid ending up bound to a picnic table and offered up to a monster. He must do battle with both the local cultists and their predatory master, The Thing in the Woods. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael C. Jones.

Our sexual proclivities are an enigma. We have them, we know that they are there; we hide them, we keep them secret - sometimes we act on them. We cannot talk about them - no one would understand. We feel heated shame. We block feeling, turn away from feeling; we do anything not to feel. We crush the horror of the terrible deed that the little voice inside our head bids us do. Freud tells us that repressing feeling will amount to neurosis - Jung says pretty much the same - the repressed will bubble to the surface in one way or another - it will find a way out. It will find its voice and it will demand to be heard. The two stories presented here delve into the idea of what happens next. What do you do - where do you go, after crashing and smashing your way through the final taboo? A Queen, her depravity told through the millennia. Homer tells her story - Pasiphae the unnatural; the King, her husband, made a cuckold. Men snigger about the royal couple - even now, centuries later. What she did, her shame exposed to all, when she gave birth to a monster. If you know Homer´s story, you will know that the monster is proof that Queen Pasiphae was indeed guilty of a terrible perversion. And my own tale ´´The Beast in Me´´, the taboo ever present in Daisy and Noah. They are lovers, besotted with each other; besotted with a terrible secret. They break man´s law and God´s law too. Sensitive listeners should be cautious, especially if easily offended. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jazmin Kensington.
