If you love Children’s action and adventure stories for ages seven and up, you’ll love C.S. Woolley’s thrilling Anglo-Saxon stories. Life in Anglo-Saxon England is far from fair, but times are changing in Snotingas. As King Penda breaks away from Nordhymbria, six young boys see a chance to change their lives for the better. Wayland, Halsey and Channing are all slaves. Ransom, Seward and Tostig are all from the ceorl class of servants. Each boy dreams of being a warrior and now they finally have a chance. War with Nordhymbria means that not only can the lives of slaves and servants change, but the lives of the children of kings and thanes. Kipp, Morven and Nyle are all warriors and sons of some of the most powerful families in Nordhymbria, but none of that means anything now that they are prisoners of Snot. However, the three boys have no plans to sit by and wait for the war to end. Instead, they are determined to cause as many problems as they can for their captors, but the sons of Nordhymbria still have to contend with the daughters of Snotingas. Will the sons of Nordhymbria escape and return to their homes? Will Wayland, Halsey, Channing, Ransom, Seward and Tostig achieve their dreams of becoming warriors? Step back in time to the age of King Penda, when the kingdom of Mercia was born. Buy WYRD today and discover history like never before.

Détails: After her parents die, a break-in should be the least of Lady Sarah's worries, but after the groundskeeper is blamed for the theft, it is clear that the thief is after more than a simple pocket watch. Orphaned by a mysterious fever, Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth must leave behind the freedom of her life in India for the confinements of Victorian England. But rather than navigating the intrigues of London society, Lady Sarah finds herself as a guest of Brigadier Webb-Kneelingroach in Grangeback Manor - a country estate on the edge of the eccentric village of Stickleback Hollow. As Lady Sarah finds space to think about her future and grieve for her lost parents, a break-in at Grangeback throws Lady Sarah’s life into more turmoil, especially as the thief seemed to only be after one thing - the pocket watch that had belonged to Lady Sarah’s father. The main suspect is the groundskeeper at Grangeback, the young, surly, but handsome Alexander Hunter. Lady Sarah is not as convinced of his guilt as the newly formed police are. With nothing but logic and instinct to help her, Lady Sarah must join forces with Constable Arwen Evans to clear Mr. Hunter’s name and find the real thief before they disappear with all that Lady Sarah has left of her father. Can the unlikely trio stop the machinations of a thief or will they find themselves outmatched by forces far beyond their ken? If you like cozy mysteries, unexpected twists and murder conspiracies, you’ll love C.S. Woolley’s captivating series. Buy A Thief in Stickleback Hollow today and be swept away by the first of these enthralling Mysteries of Stickleback Hollow. =+=+= When her parents die from fever, Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth has to leave India, a land she was born and raised in, and travel to England for the first time. Finding it almost impossible to adjust to London society, Sarah flees to the county of Cheshire and the country estate of Grangeback that borders the village of Stickleback Hollow. A place filled with oddballs, eccentrics and more suspicious characters than you can shake a stick at, Sarah feels more at home in the sleepy little village than she ever did in the big city, however, even sleepy little villages have mysteries that must be solved. =+=+= The year is 1837. Colonel Montgomery Baird and Lady Watson-Wentworth are dead leaving their only daughter, Sarah, a rich and eligible orphan. Despite many suitors, Lady Sarah has no desire to marry any of the men in India and is sent to England to stay with relatives in London. But London isn't a place that a girl who has spent her life running through the jungles of India can feel at home. Trying to find somewhere to belong, Lady Sarah travels to Cheshire to the seemingly sleepy village of Stickleback Hollow where the Grangeback Estate of Brigadier George Webb-Kneelingroach can be found. Yet Stickleback Hollow is not as quiet as it first appears to be. Not long after Lady Sarah arrives in Cheshire, a break-in at Grangeback sees the gamekeeper, Mr. Alexander Hunter arrested and Bosworth, the butler, hospitalised. But there is more to the break-in than meets the eye. With Lady Sarah's help, Constable Evans and Mr. Hunter must work together to find out who the real culprit is and what motive they have for breaking into Grangeback Manor. In a book filled with local, national and international history, not everything is as simple as it first appears in the first of these charming Victorian tales that will leave your heart racing.

Détails: It’s time to kill the king. The city of Lund is under siege. The Bergkonge has sent an army of dark elves and frost giants to put an end to the resistance against his rule once and for all. In Lund the combined powers of the humans, dwarves, light elves, and the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar wait to face those of the mountain king. For them, destroying the Bergkonge is not a matter of pride or a desire for victory, it is all about survival. Not only for Midgard, but all of the nine realms. Trapped in the dreamworld by the Bergkonge, the children of the heroes of the Danelands struggle to find a way to escape. Their mission to unlock the path to the Bergkonge’s lair complete, they long to return home to help fight in the final battle. As the frost giants attack Lund, it seems as though the guardians of the arm rings of Yngvar will hold the city on their own, but the queen of the dark elves has yet to attack, and the Bergkonge has yet to call his most deadly warriors to the battlefield. More than lives are on the line as the alliance between those in Lund, held together by the heroes of the Danelands, makes its one and only stand against the darkness of the mountain king. Can the heroes of the Danelands triumph over the forces of darkness once more, or are the nine realms doomed to cower for eternity under the shadow of the Bergkonge?

Détails: In a land of myths and legends, FATE always has the upper hand. Erland Kalebsen always dreamed of being a warrior, but now his dream is about to become a nightmare. The sons and daughters of the last generation of warriors grew up on stories of honour, glory and daring. When a new girl arrives in Ribe, a prophecy, which is centuries old, begins to unfold. When a girl from an across the sea arrives in Ribe, war is not far from the land. Yet hope is not lost, for the power of the arm rings can restore the balance and bring peace to all the tribes. Eight arm rings forged by the hand of Yngvar, filled with untold power. But if the hands of darkness hold them, the curse of Reinholdt will be unleashed and no power of man nor god can save the light of Midgard. An attack on the town by the warriors of Hedeby flings Erland, Christian, Dalla, Eva, Riki and Wifrith the wolf into an adventure that promises to change their lives forever. Out in the wilds of the Danelands, there are more dangers to worry about than the warriors of Hedeby pursuing them at every turn. Mythical and magical beasts stalk the land, as do the völvur, witches or staff wielders, with motivations of their own. Ambushed by their fireside, the children find themselves at the mercy of Ciara the völva. Can the adventurers escape the clutches of the witch, avoid the warriors of Hedeby, and find the arm ring of Yngvar that is hidden near the city of Lindholm, or are they doomed to fail, plunging their homeland into the unending fires of war.

Détails: An empire will rise and nations will fall. The nine kingdoms of Celadmore are at war. The people suffer under tyrants that strive to gain land and power in the struggle for superiority. Queen Kasnata, the wife of King Mercia Nosfa VI is trapped in a loveless, political marriage, her children are being held hostage by her husband to force her armies to march on his every whim. The people of Grashindorph, the capital city of Nosfa, are oppressed by their king and beneath the surface of the city a revolution stirs. As war threatens to tear Celadmore to pieces, Kasnata struggles to bring peace back to the realm, fighting against bribery and corruption to bring hope to all those that are oppressed, as well as those that have been caught in the savagery of warring kings. Can the legendary queen, Empress of the Order find the strength to fight knowing the fate of her people rests on her shoulders? “We assume he has been alone with the queen for the last few days and yet no one seems too concerned about it. He seems to have the trust of a lot of very suspicious individuals. If I were an assassin or a spy, then that is how I would infiltrate our people.” Misna observed with a shrug. “You are an assassin, spy and infiltrator.” Amalia said with a raised eyebrow. “Then perhaps we should be more mindful of General Bird than we have been.”

Détails: Using archaeological, epigraphic, and literary sources; and incorporating current scholarly theories, this volume will serve as an excellent companion to any introduction to Greek mythology, showing a side of the Greek gods to which most students are rarely exposed. Detailed enough to be used as a quick reference tool or text, and providing a readable account focusing on the oldest, most widespread, and most interesting religious practices of the ancient Greek world in the Archaic and Classical periods, Ancient Greek Cults surveys ancient Greek religion through the cults of its gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines. Jennifer Larson conveniently summarizes a vast amount of material in many languages, normally inaccessible to undergrad students, and explores, in detail, the variety of cults celebrated by the Greeks, how these cults differed geographically, and how each deity was conceptualized in local cult titles and rituals. Including an introductory chapter on sources and methods, and suggestions for further reading this book will allow readers to gain a fresh perspective on Greek religion.

Legendary author William Gibson (Neuromancer) called Kadrey’s first deliciously twisted Slim adventure “an addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece,” and in number three, Aloha from Hell, the ruthless avenger, a.k.a. Stark, finds himself trapped in the middle of a war between Heaven and Hell. With God on vacation, the Devil nosing around in Paradise, and an insane serial killer doing serious damage on Earth, Stark/Slim is ready to unleash some more adrenaline-surging, edgy and violent supernatural mayhem—and even pay another visit to Hell if necessary—which is great news for fans of Jim Butcher, Warren Ellis, Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, and Simon R.

Détails: A modern exploration of what happens after death, uniting spirituality with philosophy, biology, neuroscience, and rich examples of afterlife experiences. What happens to us after we die? It remains perhaps the single most important question we can ask, one that still inspires thousands to turn to the Tibetan and Egyptian Books of the Dead for hope and comfort. But we can no longer rely solely on ancient wisdom for truly useful answers about our own mortality. We must find explanations for the afterlife in the fruits of modern experience. Critically acclaimed author Ptolemy Tompkins grew up in a family where questions about the shape and fate of the human soul were discussed on a daily basis, but it was only after his father’s passing that he began to consider death in a genuinely concrete way. In this boldly unconventional book—part memoir, part history of ideas, part road map to what might truly await us—Tompkins approaches the question of the afterlife with refreshing intimacy. Weaving together philosophy, science, stories of near-death experiences, and theology, he offers readers a new perspective on death and comes to an amazing and uplifting conclusion: that, somehow, human consciousness lives on.

Détails: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." T.S. Eliot Ulysses depicts a day in Leopold Bloom’s life, broken into episodes analogous to Homer’s Odyssey and related in rich, varied styles. Joyce’s novel is celebrated for its depth of learning, earthy humor, literary allusions and piercing insight into the human heart. First published in Paris in 1922 Ulysses was not published in the United States until 1934. Immediately recognized as an extraordinary work that both echoed the history of English literature and took it in new, unheralded directions, Joyce’s book was controversial. Its widespread release was initially slowed by censors nitpicking a few passages. The novel is challenging, in that it is an uncommon reader who will perceive all that Joyce has put into his pages upon first reading, but it is uniquely rewarding for anyone willing to follow where the author leads. Far more than a learned exercise in literary skill, Ulysses displays a sense of humor that ranges from delicate to roguish as well as sequences of striking beauty and emotion. Chief among the latter must be the novel’s climactic stream of consciousness step into the mind of the protagonist’s wife, Molly Bloom, whose open-hearted acceptance of life and love is among the most memorable and moving passages in English literature. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Ulysses is both modern and readable.

Détails: New Zealand's underworld of organised crime and deadly gangs New Zealand is now one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world. Organised crime is about making money. It's a business. But over the past 20 years, the dealers have graduated from motorcycle gangs to Asian crime syndicates and now the most dangerous drug lords in the world - the Mexican cartels. In Gangland, award-winning investigative reporter Jared Savage shines a light into New Zealand's rising underworld of organised crime and violent gangs. The brutal execution of a husband-and-wife; the undercover cop who infiltrated a casino VIP lounge; the midnight fishing trip which led to the country's biggest cocaine bust; the gangster who shot his best friend in a motorcycle shop: these stories go behind the headlines and open the door to an invisible world - a world where millions of dollars are made, life is cheap, and allegiances change like the flick of a switch.

Détails: Love and tragedy dominate book four of Virgil's most powerful work, building on the violent emotions invoked by the storms, battles, warring gods, and monster-plagued wanderings of the epic's opening. Destined to be the founder of Roman culture, Aeneas, nudged by the gods, decides to leave his beloved Dido, causing her suicide in pursuit of his historical destiny. A dark plot, in which erotic passion culminates in sex, and sex leads to tragedy and death in the human realm, unfolds within the larger horizon of a supernatural sphere, dominated by power-conscious divinities. Dido is Aeneas' most significant other, and in their encounter Virgil explores timeless themes of love and loyalty, fate and fortune, the justice of the gods, imperial ambition and its victims, and ethnic differences. This course book offers a portion of the original Latin text, study questions, a commentary, and interpretative essays. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Ingo Gildenhard's incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both A2 and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis to encourage critical engagement with Virgil's poetry and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought.

Détails: Throughout his career, Eduardo Galeano has turned our understanding of history and reality on its head. Isabelle Allende said his works “invade the reader's mind, to persuade him or her to surrender to the charm of his writing and power of his idealism.” Mirrors, Galeano's most ambitious project since Memory of Fire, is an unofficial history of the world seen through history's unseen, unheard, and forgotten. As Galeano notes: “Official history has it that Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, the two oceans at once. Were the people who lived there blind??” Recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods, and visionaries, from the Garden of Eden to twenty-first-century New York, of the black slaves who built the White House and the women erased by men's fears, and told in hundreds of kaleidoscopic vignettes, Mirrors is a magic mosaic of our humanity.
