At the beginning of the 19th century, the era of Napoleonic campaigns covered the whole of Europe, causing turbulence even in the most distant and peaceful plots of land as the island of Chartley. The two opposing countries needed gold and silver for their armies, and the seas around these lands quickly became the domain for smugglers and adventure-seekers. This situation shapes the course of life of the main protagonist by introducing unexpected events and people. The main character, Adrian Landale, the master and light-keeper of Scartley, lives two distinct yet connected love stories in his life. First, as a young man, he meets beauty to fall in love with. Then, as fate separates them for years, he meets her again, her face looking young and fresh as if not touched by time. How was it possible? Was that the same woman, and what was her story?

Young adults live in a violent culture, so trying to protect them from the world they live in is not only futile but can also be dangerous. No matter their ethnicity, social class, or economic status, teens must know how to survive the perils that may await them. Most teens understand this, and they want books, television shows, and films to reflect the reality of their world—the bad along with the good. In They Hurt, They Scar, They Shoot, They Kill: Toxic Characters in Young Adult Fiction, Joni Richards Bodart examines works of fiction that feature characters who threaten the psychological and physical well-being of teens and their friends and families. In this companion volume to They Suck, They Bite, They Eat, They Kill, the focus is on individuals who prey on the vulnerable: bullies, manipulators, torturers, sexual predators, and sadists. The novels and stories discussed in this volume feature adult criminals or predators who look for young people to ensnare; school personnel who interact with students in harmful ways; teens who bully others in order to hide their own fears and weaknesses; and parents, siblings, and others who mistreat family members. Arranged in five sections that cover such topics as bullies, school shootings, and monsters at home, this volume analyzes the most important and well-written series and titles for teens. They Hurt, They Scar, They Shoot, They Kill will help parents, teachers, and other adults understand the value of these titles and the benefits of reading them, so they will be less likely to forbid them to their teens or challenge library collections for carrying them.
