Shades of the past: a game of life and death.
November (Amber) Lark is seventeen and she has just run away from the assisted living flat she shares with other young people. Shortly before her sixth birthday, her parents inexplicably disappeared – and now she thinks she has found a clue. And so she sets out for a strange city, accompanied only by her cat. On the very first night, sitting in a miserable housing block, freezing in her rain-soaked clothes, she spots a tent lit up red and yellow that holds a magical attraction for her. Inside she can see a boy reading a book – but whenever Amber approaches, he disappears along with his tent. Katya, on the other hand, the owner of the pub where Amber’s father was last seen, not only offers her a job but is always there for her, too. But can Amber be sure that the boy isn’t the person sending her the terrible threatening letters? And what about the other men, the pub guests with whom Amber seeks protection and a sense of security, but who only exploit her vulnerability – at least until the moment, when Amber realises that she must decide either to destroy herself – or to set out for a new future.
A great novel from Antonia Michaelis featuring a strong, yet vulnerable heroine amidst murderous secrets, in a shadowy world between dream and reality, and breathtakingly gripping.

Oskar travels back in time to the Middle Ages to visit his friends Albrecht, Liss and Katrin in Nuremberg. On the way there, a wagon train of people pass him on the road. They all have dark skin and black, curly hair – all, that is, except a small, fair-haired boy who gazes out at Oskar from behind a tarpaulin. His friends tell him that a group of gypsies has set up camp just outside the city. Before long, Albrecht, Liss and Oskar meet the two children Yojo and Rupa. The rest of the people in the city are not happy about having the gypsies on their doorstep and spread all sorts of rumours about them – even accusing them of child kidnapping.

Oskar and his friends decide to investigate the matter.
The race against time is on because not only does Uncle Henry suddenly turn up in the past, intent upon rescuing Oskar from the impending ice flood, but also the dangerous man who wants to catch up with the small boy Philipp. And what does all of this have to do with the emperor’s family and the forthcoming royal election?

And will Oskar ever manage to return to the future?
