Аннотация

«Маленький, большой» – это «поистине уникальный роман, в одиночку совершивший жанровую революцию» (У. Ле Гуин); это эпический бестселлер о любви и волшебстве, о свободе воли и предопределении, о роли личности в истории, плетущейся невидимым, но могущественным рассказчиком. Городской клерк Смоки Барнабл женится на Дейли Элис Дринкуотер, дочери детского писателя, и отправляется жить с ней в не отмеченную на картах усадьбу Эджвуд – загадочное сооружение, которое, чем глубже в него заходишь, тем больше становится и, кажется, вмещает в себя окружающие леса и поля, а то и весь мир. Герои «Маленького, большого», поколение за поколением, видят себя персонажами некой Повести, ощущают неочевидное соприсутствие сверхъестественных сил и неосознанно разыгрывают романтическую оперу по мотивам шекспировского «Сна в летнюю ночь», либретто которой мог бы написать Льюис Кэрролл. Перевод публикуется в новой редакции, а также с новым авторским предисловием, написанным специально для данного российского издания.

17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Delos, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate. 18 year old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition—The Killings—that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out. When Ceres stuns the court with her hidden powers, she finds herself wrongfully imprisoned, doomed to an even worse life than she could imagine. Thanos, smitten, must choose if he will risk it all for her. Yet, thrust into a world of duplicity and deadly secrets, Ceres quickly learns there are those who rule, and those who are their pawns. And that sometimes, being chosen is the worst that can happen.
