Book Excerpt :

After seventeen-year-old Thais Allard loses her widowed father in a tragic car accident, she is forced to leave the only home she’s ever known to live with a total stranger in New Orleans. New Orleans greets Thais with many secrets and mysteries, but none as unbelievable as the moment she comes face to face with the impossible—an identical twin, Clio. Thais soon learns that she and the twin she never knew come from a family of witches, that she possesses astonishing powers, and that she, along with Clio, has a key role in Balefire, the coven she was born into. Fiery Clio is less than thrilled to have to share the spotlight, but the twins must learn to combine their powers in order to complete a rite that will transform their lives and the coven forever.

Book Short Summary:

Balefire tome 3 Clio et Thais sont des sorcières. Si Clio l’a toujours su et a été élevée dans la sorcellerie, Thais, elle, n’a découvert l’étendue de ses pouvoirs que récemment, après la mort de son père. Alors qu’elle tente de maîtriser ce nouveau don, elle se retrouve au cœur du rite des Treize, dont la puissance pourrait bien changer sa vie et celle de sa sœur à jamais. À la clé de ce rite millénaire ? L’immortalité. Alors que Thais rejette en bloc cette éventualité et se méfie des sorciers qui composent l’assemblée, Clio s’intéresse de plus en plus à la magie noire. La légende qui raconte que les jumeaux sont divisés entre ombre et lumière se vérifiera-t-elle ? Le lien qui unit les deux sœurs résistera-t-il à cette divergence ? Et, surtout, les pouvoirs balbutiants de Thais sont-ils à la hauteur d’un tel rite ? Entre secrets, rêves de grandeur et double jeu, les jumelles sont-elles de taille à faire face à une assemblée de sorciers qui cherche à les manipuler ?

She knows that the violent deaths of the last Master and Chalice have thrown Willowlands into turmoil; but she is only a beekeeper, and the problems of the Circle that govern Willowlands have nothing to do with her—although she wonders what will become of her demesne, because the Master and Chalice left no heirs to carry on their crucial duties. And then the Circle come to Mirasol, to tell her that she has been chosen to be the new Chalice; and the Master she must learn to work with is a Priest of Fire, a man no longer quite human, whose touch can burn human flesh to the bone.

Book Short Summary:

I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home–because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne faerie has to offer. The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed and violence for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread the most. Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now from his prison cell. But not all the assassination attempts are his. Some Unseelie nobles have waited centuries for my aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, to become weak enough that she might be toppled from her throne. Enemies unforeseen move against us–enemies who would murder the least among us. The threat will drive us to allow human police into faerie for the first time in our history. I need my allies now more than ever, especially since fate will lead me into the arm of Mistral, Master of Storms, the queen’s new captain of her guard. Our passion will reawaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the sidhe. Pain and pleasure await me–and danger, as well, for some at that court seek only death. I will find new joys with the butterfly-winged demi-fey. My guards and I will show all of faerie that violence and sex are as popular among the sidhe as they are among the lesser fey of our court. The Darkness will weep, and Frost will comfort him. The gentlest of my guards will find new strength and break my heart. Passions undreamed of await us–and my enemies gather, for the future of both courts of faerie begins to unravel.

But within the dark woods of Emmitsboro, something evil is spreading its poisonous power. Now Clare must pay the price for digging up the secrets of the past . . . and confront an evil that may be unstoppable—because those who practice it believe it is divine.

Time is critical to help the orphans in Mexico, missions-minded Caitlin believes, but Mom and Dad are set on her attending college. Meanwhile, her relationship with Josh takes on a serious tone via e-mail -- threatening her commitment to "kiss dating goodbye." When Beanie begins dating an African-American, Caitlin's concern over dating seems to be misread as racism. One thing is obvious: God is at work through this dynamic girl in very real but puzzling ways. A soul-stretching time of racial reconciliation at school and within her church helps her discover God's will as never before.

For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead.

However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand...

Book Short Summary:

The Dawn of Magick is the first story of Donothor. The tragic fantasy chronicles the lives and deeds of many ilks of the world Sagain. Threads of fate and Magick intertwine the doomed world of sorcery with three other worlds. When the story begins, Sagain is a pastoral mundane world dominated by preternatural beings called Old Ones. Nature's most powerful forces foment a cataclysm and kindle the flicker of Magick. The flicker grows into a blaze and creates great artifacts. The power of Magick descends along family lines. As sorcerers live longer and grow more powerful, greed and competition lead to conflict. Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery choose leaders and allies, create citadels and seven fantastic wonders, and rip Sagain and its people through their ageless conflict. Spells cast by avaricious sorcerers bring forces of evil to Sagain. This begins a conflict that stretches across space and time. Powerful spells enable the imprisonment of consummate evil and facilitate the escape of a fortunate few from the doomed world. What is the source of Magick? What are the powers of the thirteen and two staves? What roles have the mysterious Old Ones, the old wanderer Confusious, Iyaca Vassi, and the Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery in the story? Does only evil lurk behind the dark walls of Koorlost, the citadel of Dark Sorcery? Does only good reside within the alabaster walls of the Laurels and its Tower of Radiance, the citadel of Light Sorcery? Are dragons, the great wyrms of the skies, good or evil? What threads connect four worlds? Ripples that began long ago in a doomed world create great waves in Donothor, Parallan, and...a blue world. The story continues in Deathquest to Parallan, the Orb of Chalar, the Death of Magick, and the Chalice of Mystery.

Book Short Summary:

England under Elizabeth I. A time of war and plague, politics and rebellion, personal heroism and religious fanaticism. When if you were born poor you stayed poor, and the thumbscrews and the rack could be the grim prelude to the executioner's block. But it was also an age that encouraged literary genius, global exploration, and timeless beauty. When the lowly privateer Francis Drake circumnavigated the globe with no reliable navigational instruments and only a drunken, mutinous crew for company. When the Queen's favourite, the wealthy and handsome Robert Dudley, was widely suspected of having killed his wife. And when only the machinations of ruthless intriguers like William Cecil and Francis Walsingham prevented Elizabeth's kingdom from descending into anarchy and political chaos. The Elizabethans is a panoramic, exhilarating depiction of an intensely colourful period by master-historian, A N Wilson. This is what life under Elizabeth I was really like.

Book Short Summary:

This number of Yeats Annual collects the essays resulting from the University College Cork/ESB International Annual W. B. Yeats Lectures Series (2003-2008) by Roy Foster, Warwick Gould, John Kelly, Paul Muldoon, Bernard O’Donoghue and Helen Vendler. Those that were available in pamphlet form are now collectors’ items, but here is the complete series. These revised essays cover such themes as Yeats and the Refrain, Yeats as a Love Poet, Yeats, Ireland and Europe, the puzzles he created and solved with his art of poetic sequences, and his long and crucial interaction with the emerging T. S. Eliot. The series was inaugurated by a study of Yeats and his Books, which marked the gift to the Boole Library, Cork, of Dr Eamonn Cantwell’s collection of rare editions of books by Yeats (here catalogued by Crónán Ó Doibhlin). Many of the volume’s fifty-six plates offer images of artists’ designs and resulting first editions. This bibliographical theme is continued with Colin Smythe’s census of surviving copies of Yeats’s earliest separate publication, Mosada (1886) and a resultant piece by Warwick Gould on that dramatic poem’s source in the legend of The Phantom Ship. John Kelly reveals Yeats’s ghost-writing for Sarah Allgood; Geert Lernout discovers the source for Yeats’s ‘Tulka’, Günther Schmigalle unearths his surprising connexions with American communist colonists in Virginia, while Deirdre Toomey edits some new letters to the French anarchist, Auguste Hamon—all providing new annotation for standard editions. The volume is rounded with review essays by Colin McDowell (on A Vision, and Berkeley, Hone and Yeats), shorter reviews of current studies by Michael Edwards, Jad Adams and Deirdre Toomey, and obituaries of Jon Stallworthy (Nicolas Barker) and Katharine Worth (Richard Cave).

Book Short Summary:

How are processes of vision, perception, and sensation conceived in the Renaissance? How are those conceptions made manifest in the arts? The essays in this volume address these and similar questions to establish important theoretical and philosophical bases for artistic production in the Renaissance and beyond. The essays also attend to the views of historically significant writers from the ancient classical period to the eighteenth century, including Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, St Augustine, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen), Ibn Sahl, Marsilio Ficino, Nicholas of Cusa, Leon Battista Alberti, Gian Paolo Lomazzo, Gregorio Comanini, John Davies, Rene Descartes, Samuel van Hoogstraten, and George Berkeley. Contributors carefully scrutinize and illustrate the effect of changing and evolving ideas of intellectual and physical vision on artistic practice in Florence, Rome, Venice, England, Austria, and the Netherlands. The artists whose work and practices are discussed include Fra Angelico, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Filippino Lippi, Giovanni Bellini, Raphael, Parmigianino, Titian, Bronzino, Johannes Gumpp and Rembrandt van Rijn. Taken together, the essays provide the reader with a fresh perspective on the intellectual confluence between art, science, philosophy, and literature across Renaissance Europe.

Book Short Summary:

Who are you? What are you? From whence have you come? Where are you destined to go? --Socrates As a doorway to the light, this book offers a vision of the world we would create if our lives honored the supreme force, God the Father. Through personal experiences and her own visionary view, the author offers a “feast for thought†illuminated with verses from the Bible. “The finite is the infinite waiting to be freed. Evil (error) is good gone astray ... the misguidance of the One Power. The child of God with the unlit candle upon the altar of the heart is the child who seeks to light the candle but knows it not ... for the breath of ignorance has tombed the wanting sightless eye.†To open the unseeing eyes of the reader, there is a series of explorations, drawn from her life of seeing beyond the doorway into the Light. It is profoundly moving and inspiring. Messages communicated through nature Dreams, voices and visions in “Divine Light†Healing oneself and others with love UFOs Family, relationships, marriage and children Dreamtime/spiritual classroom Crystals as windows of Light and intelligence Transmutation and ascension

Book Short Summary:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • A searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive, this "tale of survival and the miracle of goodness only adds to McCarthy's stature as a living master. It's gripping, frightening and, ultimately, beautiful" (San Francisco Chronicle). A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.
