In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-Earth still it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. On his eleventy-first birthday, Bilbo disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin, Frodo, the Ruling Ring, and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-Earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom

Only problem is, she's now a very different person, has no memories of Underland, and is somehow still expected to be someone she's not. How can she argue with something that's mapped out in full visual splendor in the prophetic Oraculum? With the help of The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Absolom, The Cheshire Cat, and the Bandersnatch, can Alice unlock the mystery of her past and light a path to her future?

Aún cuando la vida en el mundo de los muertos resulta ser mucho más colorida de lo que su estricta educación ofrecía, Víctor comprende que no existe nada en esta vida ni en la otra, que la pueda separar de su verdadero amor.

Lord of misrule : the autobiography of Christopher Lee by Christopher Lee( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wizard Saruman stands on a high tower, outstretched arms invoking darkness, white hair flowing. The imposing figure of Count Dooku proves more than a match for Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in a deadly light-sabre duel. And to yet another generation, Christopher Lee has become the face of cinema villainy - with key roles in two of the most successful film series ever made." "From Bond baddie Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun to Count Dracula, Lee's remarkable career spanning 56 years has delighted and terrified fans young and old alike. But his life has proved just as strange as his films." "Born into a family descended from papal nobility, Christopher Lee's childhood was full of ghosts and eccentric characters. Written with unforgettable, self-deprecating wit, Lord of Misrule takes us through the ups and downs of a highly unusual home life counterbalanced by his education as a conventional English gentleman, as public school was duly followed by the RAF - and dramatic wartime experiences." "But with the end of World War II, his yearning for something more led him into the bizarre world of British film. His success in Hammer's The Curse of Frankenstein proved to be the start of decades of cinematic triumphs, ranging from Sherlock Holmes to The Wicker Man and Sleepy Hollow." "With a cast list taking in everyone from Orson Welles to Muhammad Ali, locations across Europe, Hollywood and Africa, and packed with mesmerising anecdotes, Lord of Misrule is the perfect vehicle for the astonishing experiences of the man the Guardian describes simply as 'the coolest actor on the planet'."--Jacket
