Book Summary: Narrated in a bold, fearless, unforgettable voice and set against the lush, panoramic backdrop of Hawaii, The Descendants is a stunning debut novel about an unconventional family forced to come together and re-create its own legacy—and the inspiration for the major motion picture starring George Clooney. Fortunes have changed for the King family, descendants of Hawaiian royalty and one of the state’s largest landowners. Matthew King’s daughters—Scottie, a feisty ten-year-old, and Alex, a seventeen-year-old recovering drug addict—are out of control, and their charismatic, thrill-seeking mother, Joanie, lies in a coma after a boat-racing accident. She will soon be taken off life support. As Matt gathers his wife’s friends and family to say their final goodbyes, a difficult situation is made worse by the sudden discovery that there’s one person who hasn’t been told: the man with whom Joanie had been having an affair. Forced to examine what they owe not only to the living but to the dead, Matt, Scottie, and Alex take to the road to find Joanie’s lover, on a memorable journey that leads to unforeseen humor, growth, and profound revelations. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Kaui Hart Hemmings's The Possibilities.

But when they receive a mysterious invitation to return to the Isle, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay can't help feeling comfortable in their old hood—and their old ways.

Book Summary: Ride with the tide! Deep beneath the waves, King Triton's powerful trident has passed through the magical barrier that surrounds the Isle of the Lost—keeping villains in and magic out. And when Mal's longtime rival Uma, daughter of Ursula, gets wind of this, she can't believe her luck. The tide has dragged in something good for a change, and Uma is determined to get her wicked hands on it. But first, she needs a pirate crew. A storm is brewing back in Auradon, and when Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay hear that the trident has been washed away, they realize they'll have to find it before anyone from the Isle does. Luckily, they seem to have a talent for locating missing magical objects. As Uma readies for the high seas alongside Harry, son of Captain Hook, Gil, son of Gaston, and the toughest rogues on the Isle of the Lost, the reformed villains of Auradon devise their own master plan. And with King Ben away on royal business, they won't have to play by all the rules. Using bad for good can't be totally evil, right? The thrilling, perilous race to the trident pits old friends—and current enemies—against each other with the future of Auradon on the line. Both teams might like to make waves, but only one will come out on top of this one.

Book Summary: Alexandra is having a hard enough time being human, dealing with the unexpected death of her father and a family that’s slowly unraveling in the wake of that death. So she really, really didn’t need a werewolf attempting to kill her on top of everything else. But hey, such is life sometimes, right? Sometimes it gives you lemons, and sometimes it gives you death and vicious werewolf attacks that leave you infected, confused, and surrounded by strangers who all claim they want to save and protect you. Now all Alex has to do is decide who to trust. Which would be a lot easier if A.) Her life wasn’t suddenly insane, and B.) If one of those people trying to earn her trust wasn’t Kael, a boy who manages to be arrogant, infuriating, and entirely-too-hot-for-his-own-good, all at once. Oh, and who also might know more about herself than she does. Although, it turns out, that isn’t saying much. Because her whole life has been a lie. And now that her father is gone, dangerous truth after dangerous truth is surfacing, and Alex finds herself a would-be pawn in the center of an ancient supernatural war. A war that will force her to make an impossible choice, thanks to the magic tied to her bloodline—magic that could save the entire human world, or potentially unleash a monstrous force unlike anything it’s ever seen.

Book Summary: Ce livre met au centre de l'analyse une notion peu connue du grand public, mais facile à déterminer : celle du Descendant. Ce point, qui se trouve diamétralement opposé à l'Ascendant, nous renseigne sur nos relations avec l'Autre : partenariats, contrats, affinités électives, mariage, se lisent dans ce secteur du zodiaque. Alors que l'Ascendant nous montre quelles qualités nous voulons prouver au monde, le Descendant nous indique quelles qualités nous demandons au monde de nous apporter. A travers le Descendant, nous revendiquons, une place, un territoire à l'Autre. La réponse que nous en recevons nous renvoie à notre propre comportement : acceptation ou rejet. Car la relation avec l'Autre fonctionne comme un révélateur (un miroir ?) de notre individualité.
