Serier: Wings of Valenia (1)

The enthralling, suspenseful, and magical first book in the Wings of Valenia fantasy trilogy, perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Holly Black, and Robin McKinley.

I was Father's heir now, and one day I'd be queen. But when I looked at Mother, Adana, and Orla and imagined flying, somehow the thought of being queen didn't comfort me.

As next in line to the throne, Kiar will be responsible for protecting the human kingdom of Valenia. The middle of three daughters of King Tir and Queen Tianas, a woman of the swanfolk, Kiar is devastated when her sisters are able to take swan form and she is not.

When three young swanfolk arrive to be fostered in the royal family, her friendship with spirited Willow and growing feelings for tall, thoughtful Tuan make her feel even more different. Her inability to change shape is not the only problem Kiar faces; the king of neighboring Noermark is determined to bring Valenia under his rule, either by force or by guile. He sends his son to ask for her hand in marriage.

Facing down a human enemy is one thing, but when dark magic threatens the kingdom and tragedy pulls the family apart, it's up to Kiar and her swanfolk friends to defeat the supernatural forces before Valenia falls.

The Marble Queen is a YA fantasy graphic novel in which the political drama of Nimona meets the heartfelt romance of The Prince and the Dressmaker, but this time in a sapphic romance surrounded by a mist of magic.

Princess Amelia's kingdom, Marion, is in shambles after months of their trade routes being ravaged by pirates, and now, it seems the only option left is for her to save it through a marriage alliance. When she gets an exorbitant offer from the royalty of Iliad—a country shrouded in mystery—Amelia accepts without question and leaves her home to begin a new life.

But she lands on Iliad's shores to find that her betrothed isn't the country's prince but the recently coronated Queen Salira.

Shocked, Amelia tries to make sense of her situation and her confused heart: Salira has awakened strange new feelings inside her, but something dark hides behind the queen's sorrowful eyes. Amelia must fight the demons of her own anxiety disorder before she can tackle her wife's, all while war looms on the horizon.

Bullied as a child for being overweight and an orphan, the serial killer in I Disappeared Them hides in plain sight.

By day, he is an affable family man with a disarming smile, surrounded by his children and loving wife. At night he punches the clock as a hard-working pizza man. After work, he roams Miami’s nighttime streets as the Periwinkle Killer, the sociopath passing judgment on the wicked according to a twisted moral code. He believes himself to be a defender of women and children. The Everglades is filling up with the corpses of his victims. He must be stopped, but there are no clues except the periwinkles he leaves at every crime scene.

I Disappeared Them is a brutal, boy meets girl love story that delves into the Periwinkle Killer’s childhood to confront the age-old question, is a serial killer designed or destined? Like Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho and Joyce Carol Oates’s Zombie, Preston L. Allen’s immersive narrative hauntingly occupies the peculiar psychological landscape of a murderer.

Staring down the final days of high school, a group of friends run away from home in order to join a commune in this YA graphic novel for ages 14 and up. Stand by Me meets Catcher in the Rye by way of Skim.

Ever since Oli found a pamphlet for a remote island commune as a kid, it's all she can think about. Now that she's nearing the end of high school, feeling frustrated with the mounting pressure to choose a career and follow a path she has no interest in, the desire to escape it all has been steadily increasing.

Everything comes to a head when Oli's relationship with her best friend goes south and she claps back at a school bully with more than just words. Oli flees to find the commune on a Gulf Island off the coast of Vancouver, taking with her Milo, who can't help but hide his feelings behind the safety of a video camera, and Alvin, a shy teen who sees more than he lets on. Behind them trails Liam, Oli's ex-best-friend and sometimes love interest, who wants to apologize for the way things went down. All four are grappling with a world that cannot be changed... and simply trying to find their place in it.

This YA anti-coming-of-age road trip adventure, by talented up-and-coming comic artist Adam de Souza, captures at once the angst and humor of being a teen during a time of great transition.

On a cold January morning in 1832, a young New England mill girl, five months pregnant, is found hanged in a deserted woodyard.

Initially ruled a suicide, letters found among the victim's effects lead to the suspicion that the father of her child—and likely murderer—is the young Reverend Josiah Woodley, a married man. Josiah is arrested and charged.

Since the death of their infant daughter, when Rachel Woodley was disappointed to discover her husband wasn’t the masterful “head of the woman” her religion tells her she must have to subdue her own unwomanly drive and initiative, the Woodleys have been living parallel lives, drifting ever further apart. Now, finding the evidence against her husband strong enough to convict him, and shocked to discover no one in his church seems eager to see him exonerated, Rachel exerts herself to vindicate him, if she can. At first timid and ineffectual, she gradually gains confidence in herself—and in Josiah, who proves to be not as weak and vacillating as she once imagined. But can she uncover the truth in time to save him from the gallows?

Inspired by a true event, Marriage and Hanging is the captivating new historical novel by Genevieve Morrissey, author of the popular Antlands science fiction series.

Desperate for extra income after her mother's passing, Adanne accepts a last-minute job as a makeup artist for a movie filming in her small Alabama hometown. She's working to save her parents' legacy and help her brother, but the money hardly seems worth having to face the actor who got her fired from her last job in Hollywood.

John Pope has made his share of mistakes over the years. But after turning his life over to God and enduring a messy breakup, he's ready to start rebuilding his career. Imagine his surprise when the woman called in to cover for his usual makeup artist is a quiet but feisty newcomer on the set—and definitely not a fan.

Sparks of tension—and could that be attraction?fly between them, but Adanne hates the spotlight, and John's scheming manager has bigger plans for him than to end up with the humble makeup girl from the small-town South. Can these star-crossed lovers find their way to happiness? Or will the bright lights of Hollywood blind their eyes to what's right in front of them?

Debut author Jenny Erlingsson's diverse cast comes alive with faith, romance, and a touch of humor to create a story worthy of the big screen.

In September 2016, Jerry Stahl was feeling nervous on the eve of a two-week trip across Poland and Germany.

But it was not just the stops at Auschwitz, Buchenwald, and Dachau that gave him anxiety. It was the fact that he would be traveling with two dozen strangers, by bus. In a tour group. And he was not a tour-group kind of guy.

The decision to visit Holocaust-world did not come easy. Stahl’s lifelong depression at an all-time high, his career and personal life at an all-time low, he had the idea to go on a trip where the despair he was feeling—out-of-control sadness, regret, and fear, not just for himself, but for the entire United States—would be appropriate. And where was despair more appropriate than the land of the Six Million?

Seamlessly weaving global and personal history, through the lens of Stahl’s own bent perspective, Nein, Nein, Nein! stands out as a triumph of strange-o reporting, a tale that takes us from gang polkas to tour-rash to the truly disturbing snack bar at Auschwitz. Strap in for a raw, surreal, and redemptively hilarious trip. Get on the bus.

Melia is spellbound by the stuffed wildcat in her family's living room--her cousin swears that it comes to life and roams the streets at night. When she finds a signed note from the animal with secret instructions, a thrilling and dangerous adventure begins.

For Melia and her sister Myrto, summer means a break from Grandfather's history lessons and weeks of running free at the seaside with their ragtag group of friends. Best of all, cousin Nikos will visit and tell his fabulous stories about the taxidermied wildcat, which opens its blue glass eye when it wants to do good deeds and its black one when it makes trouble. The black eye must be open lately because all the adults have been acting strangely, arguing about politics and fearful of the police. Soon even the children are divided--who can Melia trust? And can the wildcat help keep her family safe?

Set in Greece during the 1930s, when the nation was torn apart by fascism, The Wildcat Behind Glass is an unforgettable tale of family, humanity, and what it means to be free. From its 1963 release to the dozens of international editions and honors that followed including a Mildred L. Batchelder Award, the novel has enchanted generations of young readers. Now, a fresh English translation—the first in over 50 years—breathes new life into the timeless story.

The year is 1942: Robert Mann, a brilliant young American physicist of German birth, joins Allied Intelligence. When the assassination of a top Nazi official presents OSS and MI-6 with a rare chance to penetrate the Third Reich, Robert volunteers.

His cover survives one nerve-racking encounter after another as he infiltrates Hitler’s atom bomb program. Then comes the ultimate test: entry into the home of Effi Zell—wife of Christoph Zell—the man Robert is impersonating. Tension builds toward a crescendo, then collapses as Christoph and Effi fall in love. Their torrid affair morphs into a man-woman resistance team. Again, the tension builds…

Robert and Effi perfect the art of deception on their perilous journey toward sabotage. Their goal: to deny Hitler the nuclear weapon that will decide the outcome of World War II. But a new threat of blown cover forces Robert to accept a pivotal role in the bomb’s final stage of development.

The result: an American spy creates the world’s first atomic weapon—for Germany. If Robert cannot “defuse” the bomb, he will have dealt London and Allied armies a fatal blow. He has decided that life is not worth living without Effi. But he cannot contrive an escape until he destroys the monster he has created. Robert faces dilemmas and challenges of historical proportion. Whether he succeeds is a question whose answer the reader will demand to know.

The East Wind is not an ordinary thriller. It is an original, unpredictable nail-biter reminiscent of vintage Le Carré.

Can killing be an act of love? Hypnotic, gruesome, and exultant, Joy Sorman's macabre ballet whirls from industrial slaughterhouses to the boutique butcher shops of Paris.

Pim is a delicate youth—stringy, solemn, and prone to bouts of unexplained weeping. When he enrolls in trade school as an apprentice butcher, his mentors have low expectations, but his lanky body conceals a peculiar flame: a passionate devotion to animals. In an industry that strives to distance the chopping block from the dinner plate, his ardor might seem like a handicap, but Pim rises through the knife-wielding ranks with a barely-tethered zeal. He scours blood from floor mats and stacks carcasses in the cold room by day. By night he tries to slake his appetites: at the table, over boudin sausage and steak tartare, and in bed, with women whose flanks, ribs, and haunches he maps as they undress each other.

Pim's professional successes mount but his cravings gnaw. In the library he teases out histories, like the blood-drinking forerunners to vampirism or the Medieval trial of a killer pig, sentenced to death by hanging. Meat crowds his waking thoughts. Even as he carves ripe flesh from exquisite bone, he labors to close the gap between man and beast—to be seen, understood, even loved, by a primordial mind. Will this ravenous obsession yield to madness, or to ecstasy?

With shades of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, Joy Sorman's Tenderloin is an ethical foray, fever dream, and paean to an ageless hunger. Vegetarians and carnivores alike are invited to feast at this sumptuous literary table. After all, we are what we eat.

The women have something to say. Are you listening?

In this powerful and needed collection, editor Angela P. Dodson brings together the voices of more than thirty-five accomplished women writers on the topic of violence and injustice against Black men. These writers are journalists, authors, scholars, ministers, psychologists, counselors, and other experts. They are also wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, aunties, and friends. Each lends her voice to shine a new light on the injustices and dangers Black men face daily, and how women feel about the vulnerability of our sons, husbands, brothers, fathers, uncles, friends, and other males we care about as they navigate a world that often stereotypes and targets them. Contributors include:

  • Elizabeth Alexander, president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, poet, and author of The Light of the World
  • Brenda M. Greene, founder and executive director of the Center for Black Literature, director of the National Black Writers Conference, and professor of English at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York
  • Goldie Taylor, former US Marine, MSNBC contributor, author, and an editor at large of The Daily Beast
  • Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize winner, National Humanities Medal recipient, and author of Casteand The Warmth of Other Suns
  • Charisse Jones, award-winning journalist and coauthor of eight books, including Shifting: The Double Lives of Black Women in Americaand the New York Timesbestselling memoir of Misty Copeland, Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina
  • Audrey Edwards, former executive editor of Essencemagazine and the author of seven books, including the award-winning American Runaway: Black and Free in Paris in the Trump Years
  • Michelle Duster, author, public historian, and great-granddaughter of Ida B. Wells
  • Sonya Ross, managing editor of Inside Climate News, founder of Black Women Unmuted, AP's first Black woman White House reporter, and first Black woman elected to the board of the White House Correspondents Association
  • Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, contributing writer at The New Yorker, Leon Forrest Professor of African American Studies at Northwestern University, author of Race for Profit, and editor of How We Get Free
  • Donna Brazile, endowed chair of the Gwendolyn and Colbert King public policy lecture series at Howard University, member of USA Today's Board of Contributors, Fox Newscontributor, and author of Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House
  • Darnella Frazier, citizen journalist awarded a Pulitzer citation for her role filming the murder of George Floyd

The catalyst for a national conversation, this collection offers historical context that is often missing from public discussions and media coverage, while demonstrating an ongoing pattern of demonizing Black men that is rooted deep in the history of our nation. The essays in this book engage with the emotional toll anti-Black violence takes on women in particular and cast a vision for future activism.

There are many ways to make a difference in our communities, many causes to organize and volunteer for. But where do we start? And how do we avoid burning out? Whether you're just beginning the work of social justice, or you've been doing it for years but need a reminder of why we're in this fight and how to keep going, this book is for you.

Johnson explores what compels us to serve and how to respond to the many needs around us, offering insights from well-known figures in justice work such as Claudia Rankine, Greg Boyle, Gandhi, and more. What is personal is also universal--containing the essentials of justice work and advocacy, and revealing why we keep going. For all who care about environmental justice, LGBTQ+ advocacy, anti-racism efforts, and community support, The Work Is the Workcelebrates the struggles and victories of advocacy work and shares the spirit of justice for our children, the next generation of changemakers.

Written for the millions who work for justice, march in the streets, volunteer in service positions for the public sector, and want to inspire the next generation of changemakers, this book reminds us of the essentials and inspires us to keep fighting the good fight.

A highly educated Black man with multiple degrees and experience as a lawyer, professor, Christian clergy person, and journalist, his story provides an up close and personal look at the feelings of many adoptees and is a valuable read for anyone who has experienced adoption as an adoptive parent, child, or biological parent.

Indeed, it is a fascinating read for anyone interested in how we humans face our losses and find resolution to our internal questions.

"If you enjoy mysteries that challenge your intellect and keep you guessing until the very end, then The Desk from Hoboken is a must-read." —K.C. Finn, 5-Star Readers' Favorite Review.

In a bid to heal from the grief of a personal loss, forensic genealogist, RaeJean Hunter, takes on a straightforward case —identify human remains found on a nearby college campus, believed to be the 180-year-old remains of Mary Rogers, a woman who died mysteriously in 1841 and was believed to have been buried in the nearby cemetery that had washed away. It should be simple enough, a project to get her back in the game.

Unfortunately, it quickly becomes anything but. In fact, it becomes downright dangerous.

Someone doesn't want RaeJean to investigate the puzzling death of the woman whose death inspired Edgar Allan Poe's The Mystery of Marie Roget. As she follows clues through four states and discovers living family members who both help and hinder her search, she quickly realizes that the secrets of Mary Rogers' demise were never meant to be exposed.

What lengths will someone go to keep the truth buried in the past? As threats escalate and RaeJean and her family's lives become endangered, she's forced to follow every lead and use every skill she has to find the answers she needs before it's too late. Using DNA from two famous New England families, historical data, modern genealogical techniques, and a little guidance from a seemingly mystical antique desk, RaeJean takes on the cold case despite being given every reason to abandon it.

After all, what truths have been hidden for 180 years that would be worth bribery, kidnapping, and even murder?

RaeJean Hunter is about to find out.

Geeta is a Dalit: A low caste. Today, there are more than 200 million Dalit people in our world. Dalits are still considered by many the low caste who are not clean enough to be touched and deemed to do only the dirtiest job. Geeta decides to change all this.

In a not-so-distant future where Earth's dominion has been usurped by a coalition of genetically enhanced cockroaches and serpentine overlords wielding control over AI and robotics, humanity teeters on the brink of annihilation. Amidst this dire backdrop, emerges an unexpected hero - Geeta, a young Dalit girl.

In her quest, Geeta confronts not only the cosmic unknown but also the stubborn prejudices and divisions that haunt her kind. Against a backdrop of alien landscapes and unfathomable celestial secrets, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery.

Devi's Game is a testament to resilience, unity, and the indomitable human spirit. It tells the remarkable story of a Dalit girl who once stood barred from the hallowed temple grounds where Gods were worshipped but now aims to prove to the universe that she is not only deserving of the love of a God's son but also of ascension to the status of a Goddess - a Devi.

Prepare to embark on an epic interstellar odyssey that delves into themes of identity, diversity, and the enduring forces of hope and love.

An engaging exploration of the unique history and biology of fasting--an essential component of many traditional health practices, religions, and philosophies, resurging in popularity today--perfect for readers of Breath by James Nestor and Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker.

We fast all the time, even when we're not conscious of doing so. A fast manifests the idea of holding back, resisting the animal impulse to charge ahead. Its flip side is similarly everywhere: call it splurging, self-indulgence, or a variant of "self-care." Based on extensive historical, scientific, and cultural research and reporting, The Fast illuminates the numerous facets of this act of self-deprivation. John Oakes interviews doctors, spiritual leaders, activists, and others who guide him through this practice--and embarks on fasts of his own—to deliver a book that supplies readers curious about fasting with profound new understanding, appreciation, and inspiration.

Fasting has become increasingly popular for a variety of reasons--from health advocates who see fasting as a method to lose weight or to detox, to the faithful who fast in prayer, to seekers pursuing mindfulness, to activists using hunger strikes as an effective means of peaceful protest. Fasting is central to holy seasons and days such as Lent in Christianity, Ramadan in Islam, and Yom Kippur in Judaism. Advocates for justice who have waged hunger strikes include Gandhi in India, Bobby Sands in Ireland, and the Taxi Workers Alliance in New York City. Whether for philosophical, political, or health-related reasons, fasting marks a departure from daily routine.

Fasting involves doing less but doing less in a radical way, reminding us that a slower, more intentional contemplative experience can be more fulfilling. Ultimately, this book shows us that fasting is about much more than food: it is about reconsidering our place in the world.

At six years old, Mary Alice Lydell is consumed by fear. No one can protect her from the monster she cannot name.

Even if she understood the monster, she couldn't tell Momma or Aunt Jean or her best friend Carolyn, because if she did, they would know she was bad and wouldn't love her. She sits inside her closet, talking to Birdhouse Jesus, a crucifix she stole from Aunt Jean, hoping he will make Daddy be nice to her and not behave in ways that terrify her. In her teens, filled with self-loathing, Mary Alice falls quickly and deeply in love with a man who touches her gently and makes her feel worthy. Soon, she has another secret - and a baby on the way. The baby's father also has a secret: he's married to someone else.

Family ties - the ones that bind and nurture, and the ones that strangle and suffocate - shape Mary Alice's life in profound ways. Although Birdhouse Jesus is a story of trauma and betrayal, it is also one of resilience and hope, as Mary Alice struggles to become the woman that a part of her has always known she could be.

In this swoon-filled lesbian romcom, two dating show contestants vying for the affection of the leading man fall head over heels—for each other.

Krystin knows exactly what she wants: a husband, a horse, and a place to hang all her competitive rodeo blue ribbons. But when none of the eligible bachelors in Montana end up being right for her, she turns to reality TV. On Hopelessly Devoted, Krystin will compete against dozens of other women for the heart of this season's Hopeless Romantic, Josh Rosen. She's determined to win the perfect life she came here for—if she can just ignore the glossy brunette whose crimson smile gives her goosebumps.

Lauren has never done anything for the right reasons—and she's definitely not on Hopelessly Devoted to win Josh's heart. Lauren's plan is simple: stay on the show long enough to build her social media following, and then gracefully leave when it's her turn to be eliminated. With enough followers, she'll finally have the clout to do whatever she wants—including come out of the proverbial walk-in closet. But the longer she stays on the show, the more she finds herself tangled up in a certain blonde's lasso. 

Neither contestant expects a heteronormative dating show to challenge their own deeply-ingrained ideas of who they are—and what they want. Fans of The Charm Offensive and Love Island will swoon for this sparkling debut romcom.

Daniel Zimmer will do almost anything to end his pain—except for the one thing that might work. 

Growing up in 1970s Brooklyn under the shadow of his tyrannical father and against the backdrop of the Son of Sam murders, the Karen Ann Quinlan tragedy, and the New York Yankees' back-to-back championship seasons, Daniel Zimmer struggles to find a sense of safety and belonging. Daniel and his brother Max find moments of solace in the rebellious rhythms of early punk and metal bands like the Ramones and Judas Priest. But when faced with an unexpected family tragedy—for which he feels responsible—Daniel discovers the magical escape that alcohol can provide, numbing his pain and guilt. 

Carrying the trauma of his youth into adulthood, Daniel falls deeper into alcoholism as he fights to face life on life's terms. Then, just as he finally begins to embrace sobriety, Max attempts suicide and Daniel's ex-fiancée makes an unexpected reappearance. Forced to face his demons head-on, Daniel struggles to take things one day at a time.

Flashing through Daniel's life, past and present, this nostalgic ode to Brooklyn is an unflinching account of the inevitable ups and downs of recovery and coming of age. Ultimately, it is a story of the ravages of generational abuse and the power of recognizing addiction and opening the door to the possibilities of redemption.

The only way people get out of Worcester is in a body bag, people used to say when Mal was growing up in the Main South neighborhood—crash-landing in house after house like true wrens, her family's nutty avian namesake.

Raising Wrenns recounts her trips back to Worcester after the men in her family lost their lives; first her dad when he was shot, and later her brother who committed suicide jumping off a roof. On these trips she revisits the shoddy apartments they perched in, resurrecting her macabre, sometimes comical childhood memories of the streets where they fought bloody and birdlike for their survival.

The book is cordoned by fantastical and scientific stories comparing her family's world and personality traits with those of wrens. It also contains a creative history of Worcester, a former factory town plagued by poverty, addiction, and violence—a cycle that Mal, unlike her brother and father, was able to escape.

In a world clamoring for new heroes, One Voice Institute has unveiled a marvel poised to inspire the next generation.

The Story of Madrika is a captivating tale that invites readers of all ages to journey alongside a young hero discovering her destiny as The Empoweress. Madrika's adventure—a tapestry woven with magic, camaraderie, and the unwavering spirit of hope—stands as a beacon of light in children’s literature.

"Madrika's story is more than words on pages; it's a living inspiration. Every child who meets Madrika will see a reflection of their limitless potential and the strength that kindness wields," expressed Philip Rotstein, the Spokesperson for One Voice Institute. "We are excited to share this unique narrative that harmonizes with our mission to nurture empowerment and create a positive impact through storytelling."

This compelling protagonist is not only strong and courageous but also a vessel of immense magical gifts discovered amidst her awe-inspiring adventures. She is a testament to the power of positivity and an emblem of nature's nurturing force. Madrika is an Empoweress, a title that transcends the realms of fantasy and plants seeds of empowerment in the fertile soil of young minds. Her universe is richly populated with a colorful cast designed to delight and engage readers: enchanted wolves, a tribe of wise mentors, and fairies who have transcended their initial forms to become fierce Forest Nymphs with stained glass wings. The diversity of characters and the depth of their connections redefine what a family can be—anchored not by kinship but by shared quests and intertwined fates.

Perhaps most memorable among these beings is an ancient 3-headed dragon offering both comic relief and timeless wisdom, an example that whimsy and profundity can coexist splendidly. Adding to this stunning mosaic, an army of bees reminds us of the indispensable beauty of nature and the many ways it speaks to us if only we listen. Readers are not just observers; they are invited to partake in a liberation of imagination, an interactive experience promising not only a sanctuary for the eyes weary of screens but also a conversation between the text and the soul.

'Madrika, the Empoweress' comes to life not just through rich storytelling but also through an invitation—a clarion call to embrace the fantastic, to recognize our interconnectedness with the larger cosmos, and to wield hope and kindness as unparalleled forces that drive change. One Voice Institute's imaginative endeavor aligns perfectly with their ethos of harnessing narrative as a vessel of enlightenment and enjoyment. It celebrates not only the journey of its main character but also the individual journey of each reader as he or she unlocks the magic within The Story of Madrika. With the launch of Madrika’s tale, One Voice Institute rekindles the enchantment of storytelling and sparks a global conversation about the role of narrative as a cornerstone of development and joy. Whether it be read aloud or silently relished, The Story of Madrika is not just a story—it's an experience, one that resonates with the bells of wonder and the echo of life’s greatest adventures. Copies are available at local bookstores and via Amazon.

Are caregiving and creative labor fundamentally at odds? Is it possible for mothers to attend to both?

Few women artists feature prominently in the history of art, and even fewer who are mothers. How are motherhood and artmaking at play and at odds in the lives of women? What can we learn about ambition, limitation, and creativity from women who persist in doing both?

Forged in the stress of early motherhood, The Mother Artist explores the fraught yet generative ties between caregiving and creative practice. As a young mother working at a museum, essayist Catherine Ricketts began asking questions about the making of motherhood and the making of art. Now, with incantatory prose and an intuitive gaze, she twines intimate meditations on parenthood with studies of the work and lives of painters, writers, dancers, musicians, and other creatives. Ricketts takes readers through the studios of mother artists, placing us in the company of women from the past and the present who persevere in both art and caregiving. We encounter Senga Nengudi's sculptures, which celebrate the pregnant body, and Toni Morrison's powerful writing on childbirth. We behold Joan Didion's meditations on maternal grief and Alice Neel's arresting portraits of mothers and babies. And we observe the ambition of sculptor Ruth Asawa, the activism of printmaker Elizabeth Catlett, and the constancy of writer Madeleine L'Engle. The Mother Artist welcomes us into a community of creatives and includes full-color images of their work.

Part memoir, part biography, and part inquiry into the visual, literary, and performing arts, The Mother Artist contends that a brutal world needs art made by those who have cared for the vulnerable. This book is for mothers who aspire to make art, anyone eager to discover the stories of visionary women, and all who long for a revolution of tenderness.

In the year 1814, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, a gifted teenager born into a family of literary brilliance, falls deeply in love with the youthful rebel, Percy Bysshe Shelley. Defying societal conventions, they embark on a daring escapade, accompanied by Mary's step-sister Claire, leaving behind their respective families and Percy's wife and children.

Driven to elude the strict laws of England, which threaten to separate them from their own children, Mary and Shelley embark on a nomadic existence, wandering through the captivating landscapes of Italy while constantly evading their haunting past. As their circumstances become increasingly dire, their shared passion for writing emerges as the sole lifeline that binds them together. Through their literary endeavors, they become each other's guiding force, ultimately crafting timeless masterpieces that will etch their names into the annals of literary history.

When a new evil begins stalking the streets of Victorian London, reformed villain with superpowers Clara Blakely must team up with an assassin who is most skilled at sneaking into her heart and become what nobody expected, a hero.

Clara Blakely has left her days as Miss Take, the notorious villain of Victorian London, behind her. She is a reformed, law-abiding citizen using the superpower given to her by industrial pollution to pay her debt to society. Or that’s what she would have the authorities believe. Clara has no intention of helping anyone but herself, and the last thing she wants is to be dragged into a fight against a new and murderous evil that’s stalking the streets.

Yet, despite the Hero Brigade thwarting her every move, she must take on the city’s powerful and corrupt elite by joining forces with a cheat, her hapless landlord, and a trio of trained killers, including an assassin whose skill with a knife is matched only by their skill at creeping into Clara’s heart. With stakes so high, Clara must become what no one, least of all herself, expects: a hero.

Enola Holmes meets X-Men meets Warrior Nun in this action-adventure sapphic fantasy with elements of sci-fi and steampunk. Filled with gallows humor, ridiculous violence, CGI-ready monsters, and tantalizing romance, get ready for the snarky and sassy Miss Take in this reimagining of Victorian Britain.

This is the story of two cousins: one with stars in her eyes, the other with her eyes on the stars…

Beatrice is a stubborn, no-nonsense astronomy professor at a small college in wine country. While working toward her tenure, she spends an inordinate amount of time trying to avoid Ben, an annoying librarian she believes wronged her when they were students. Their rapid-fire exchanges could almost be mistaken for chemistry, if he hadn’t done that unspeakable thing so many years ago.

Her younger cousin Heron is a wistful student in her final year of college. The opposite of Beatrice, she is a hopeless romantic, pinning her hopes on a future with her boyfriend Charlie.

When Charlie proposes to Heron, Bea is worried her younger cousin’s needs are taking a backseat to his ambitions. Heron responds to her cousin’s criticism with a matchmaking scheme designed to show Bea the upside of romance.

As Heron and Bea deal with the fallout from a campus scandal, each finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about the best course for the future. Eventually, each woman must make a choice: Bea between the comfortable role of merry spinster or a fulfilling partnership; Heron between marriage to Charlie or reaching for a new dream.

Amy Dressler’s whip-smart debut novel is not to be missed, a tour de force of female empowerment, body-positivity, and family friendship as she turns Shakespeare upside down in an unexpected and brilliant way for a new generation of women.

Educator and author Elizabeth Stein offers a thoughtful, useful book on how to integrate restorative practices into the classroom experience to both streamline student behavior and improve engagement and learning.

When teachers recognize the "in between spaces" during the day-to-day, those quieter moments of transitions between tasks, they offer students safe, inviting ways to own their learning and participate in an engaged community of learners. By highlighting the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, Stein's book is both insightful and practical, offering busy educators easy-to-implement strategies to humanize classroom management and improve student learning.

As Elizabeth points out,

"Restorative practices live up to their name: They restore a sense of community and encourage learning together through specific techniques meant to support a sense of belonging, healing, and healthy relationships within the classroom community. Universal Design for Learning also lives up to its name, because it's all-inclusive: It gives every learner the opportunity to feel successful and valued as a member of the classroom community."

Humanizing Classroom Management offers educators inspiring and insightful guidance on how to address challenges of student behavior while also supporting their learning outcomes.

Empowerment is a journey of self-discovery and change. It is about uncovering our unique gifts and abilities and finding the courage to use them effectively.

The path to empowerment is not always easy, but it is worth it. Across the ages, from ancient civilizations to modern times, the struggle for empowerment has been a driving force in human history.

From the defiant cry of Liberte!’ Egalite!’ Fraternite!’ during the French Revolution to the chants of We Shall Overcome! and No Justice, No Peace! during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, people fought for the right to shape their destinies. But beyond the sweeping movements that shaped history, the quest for empowerment also plays out in ordinary people’s everyday lives, relationships, careers, and spiritual journeys.

This book will explore the many facets of empowerment, from the grand scale of political movements to the intimate details of individual lives and how they have shaped the human experience.

It will explore everything, from obscure to rebellious rebels like the Zapatistas and Black Panthers to everyday heroes like Rosa Parks, The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, and Malala Yousafzai.

We will delve into the power of community organizing and grassroots activism, from the Civil Rights Movement to modern-day climate justice warriors and others.

Caleb Young, intent on preventing nuclear war, must balance each side’s perceived balance of power, but to do so, he must “shade” his NIE by inflating Soviet capabilities to forestall an effort by the Strategic Air Command (SAC) to launch a preemptive first strike that would annihilate 300 hundred million civilians.

When the U-2 flights from July 5, 1956, through May 1, 1960, fail to confirm a bomber or missile gap, the national security establishment begins to suspect that Caleb has deliberately falsified his reports.

After John F. Kennedy is assassinated in November 1963, Caleb begins to publicly criticize the composition of the Warren Commission, which upsets President Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, and U.S. Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach who are attempting to minimize any Cuban or Russian involvement to avoid an international incident. But the three are curious about what CIA Director John McCone is not telling them about Oswald’s activities in Mexico City and believe Caleb knows how the CIA has conducted paramilitary operations in the Philippines and Guatemala, among other locations.

Katzenbach instructs the head of his criminal intelligence division, William E. Forde (fictional), to impanel a Grand Jury and issue an office subpoena to rein in Caleb’s public statements and follow the money trail where the CIA has toppled legitimate democratic regimes. Over the next ten months, Forde deposes Caleb and is tasked with developing a complete profile of him, including his childhood years and education. Caleb delays and obfuscates to protect Forde and his family from the Agency’s counterintelligence unit.

This book is the culmination of the First Strike Series and takes the reader through the Cuban Missile Crisis all the way to a hot war between China and the US in 2027. It also discloses many secret ops by the US CIA and JFK's assassination.

This fascinating autobiography offers not a success story; nor a paean to the resilience of the human spirit; nor a search for identity constrained by class, race, and gender or the other usual suspects; nor a tearjerker that engenders in the Western reader a sense of superiority or schadenfreude. Rather, it is a tale of the joys and hardships of simple living, of an enduring curiosity about the world, of teachers and friends, of marriage and divorce, of Chinese and American societies, of tofu and jalapeños, of character flaws and personality quirks, of humbug and folly.

About The Author

Dr Xiuwu R. Liu studied English at Hunan University in Changsha, contemporary American society at the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, American studies at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, and the philosophy and methodology of cross-cultural inquiry as well as modern China at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Since 1994 he has been an assistant professor of interdisciplinary studies at Miami University in Oxford, USA. Liu is a member of the American Philosophical Association.

On the island of Eshol, a ruling council gifts magic to all its citizens — whether they want it or not.

Eighteen-year-old Rayna Drey should be excited for her Branding, when the island’s Good Council will infuse her blood with one of five sanctioned magics: the ability to wield elements, summon objects, shift forms, talk to wildlife, or manipulate minds. The Good Council is good. The Branding doesn’t hurt. And the institution she must attend afterward, to learn how to control her new gift, is only a little dangerous.

Or, at least, that’s what Rayna has always heard. As soon as she arrives at the Esholian Institute, however, a peer-pressured dare makes her explode with a power as deadly as it is forbidden. Worse yet, the only one who can teach her how to hide it from the Good Council is Coen Steeler, a much-too-handsome fifth-year who can manipulate minds as easily as he breathes. He alone understands Rayna’s forbidden power…because he has the same one.

With their secret in each other’s hands, Rayna soon uncovers other dark secrets that threaten the very foundation of the island itself. And the worst of them? If the Good Council finds out what lurks in her and Coen’s blood, they’ll both face a fate beyond obedience — and a punishment worse than death.

Esther and Harry Praw were both Holocaust survivors who had a perilous journey to find freedom in the United States.

They were fortunate to make it to the shores of the U.S. with nothing more than hope. The opportunity they found in the U.S. eventually allowed their children and grandchildren the chance for a better life and success. Sadly, more than 70 years after they arrived on the U.S.S. Hersey to the New York harbor, the "American Dream" is fading away as the immigration laws and policies become more and more dysfunctional and rigid. Xenophoboia and Holocaust denialism has increased in recent years and with the generation of Holocaust survivors leaving us, it raises the following questions:

What exactly is the “American Dream”?

Does that “Dream” still exist?

Will the memory of Holocaust survivors persist or fade away like the American dream?

This book primarily follows Esther's journey in her own words and compares her immigration story to the stories of immigrants who are trying to find that same dream today.

A humorous and heartfelt book about the complicated relationship between a mother, a daughter, and a grandmother.

Gabrielle Malone shows up on her mother’s Arizona doorstep with nothing more than a few belongings, her teenage daughter, and a car with no air conditioning (don’t ask). The rest she left behind—her house, everything she owned, and her ex-husband. Her estranged mother Ida, a former Olympic swimmer and current chain smoker, needs her help after a significant health scare. Gabrielle hopes this is their relationship’s opportunity for a fresh start, and a new beginning for her too.

Thirteen-year-old Juniper feels stranded at an old lady’s house she barely knows. She’s frustrated that her mom uprooted their entire life for a strange place and misses her dad. Forced to attend the pointless last week of school, she embarrasses herself on the first day and is certain she’ll never make friends again. As if that weren’t bad enough, her mother’s nightly binge-eating and cry sessions are concerning to say the least.

Ida is her own woman, resenting being tethered to the oxygen hoses winding through her house. She looks darn good in the old, framed cigarette ads on her wall, holding her gold swimming medal. Heck, she still looks good. Her neighbor Morton certainly thinks so. She had one little health scare. What’s the big deal? Heart surgery. It’s coming for her. She knows it but likes to pretend she doesn’t.

Ida is shocked to learn her own granddaughter can’t swim. The one legacy she had hoped would carry on for generations is at stake. While her health certainly limits her activities, she knows she must teach the skill that brought her a lifetime of pride. Gabrielle may have laughed at the idea of her frail mother getting back into the pool, but that’s exactly what Ida would do. Teach her to swim.

Learning to Swim is a coming of age novel about three women in different stages of life mending relationships. Shayla Dugan’s debut family drama book is a delightful read full of insight, wisdom, and wit.

We live in a difficult time. The world is changing in ways that are often complex, confusing, and disruptive to our lives and that can't easily be anticipated.

Within such a world, there is a renewed hunger for more direct access to personal gnosis, not dependent on external authorities. Each of us craves a reliable internal compass with which to navigate a world that, in the throes of very large, seemingly insolvable environmental, political, economic, social, racial and cultural problems, is increasingly uncertain.

While astrology may not be able to directly address these global issues, it can help us to cope in meaningful ways by reminding us, through an ongoing, ever-evolving conversation between psyche and cosmos, that we have a place and a purpose in the larger scheme of things. Out of this conversation can come not just a clearer sense of identity and purpose, and a greater capacity to effectively navigate one's life, but also a communion with numinous, sacred mysteries.

This book narrates the history of astrology's co-evolution with science, religion and culture over thousands of years, and shows how in the postmodern era of increasing uncertainty, it can provide a more direct pathway to deep self-knowledge. The author shows how it is possible to go beyond interpretation into a more intimate exploratory relationship to a living cosmos. 472 pages with bibliography and a useful navigational index.

Serier: Systema Paradoxa (20)

There are creatures lurking in our world. Obscure creatures long relegated to myth and legend. They have been sighted by a lucky—or unlucky—few, some have even been photographed, but their existence remains unproven and unrecognized by the scientific community.

These creatures, long thought gone, have somehow survived; creatures from our nightmares haunting the dark places. They swim in our lakes and bays, they soar the night skies, they hunt in the woods. Some are from our past, and some from other worlds, and others have always been with us—watching us, fearing us, hunting us.

These are the cryptids, and Systema Paradoxa tells their tales.

***

Ben Keep and Annetta Maikels have lived a quiet life since their first encounter with the unexplained, but when a copy of Natura Occulta falls into their hands—detailing strange phenomena that purportedly happened in their own backyard—they can't resist investigating further.

But perhaps they should have...

Not only does the secret they pursue come with a body count, but some involved want to add Ben and Annetta to that number.

Caught between two inexplicable forces, their only hope to reclaim their lives is to solve the mystery.

Serier: The Emissaries (2)

When the new provincial governor arrives in Corinth, the esteemed chief magistrate Narkis Ligus is delighted.

He sees a golden opportunity in the governor's presence—a chance to unite their households through the marriage of one of his beautiful unwed daughters to the governor's firstborn son. Such an advantageous union would surely bring divine blessings from the gods, propelling him to greater power and fortune.

Yet complications quickly arise in Narkis's own family. Mariana, his stepdaughter, holds steadfast faith in Yeshua, rendering her hesitant to marry a man devoted to the Roman gods, despite Narkis's urging. On the other hand, Prima, his daughter by birth, yearns for a life of wealth and status and is willing to go to great lengths to secure a marriage that fulfills her desires—even if it means betraying Mariana to do it.

In New York Times bestselling author Angela Hunt's compelling series sequel comes a captivating story of love, sacrifice, and the quest for power set against the backdrop of ancient Corinth.

Inspired by Victoria Kelly's experiences as the wife of a fighter pilot during three wartime deployments, this collection follows women whose lives have been impacted by war and military service as they struggle with their fragile ideas of home. 

In Prayers of an American Wife, a Navy wife grapples with loneliness when she discovers that her neighbor, also a Navy wife, is having an affair while their husbands are deployed on the same aircraft carrier. Tensions rise in The Strangers of Dubai as a soldier on leave tries to buy his wife a souvenir from an Afghan vendor. After attending eight funerals with fellow military wives whose husbands died in the Iraq war, the protagonist in Finding the Good Light divorces her Navy husband and tries to start a new life as a movie star. These, along with the eleven other stories in this collection, explore the emotional landscape of the resilient women who remain on the homefront.

Kelly's stories offer readers an intimate, eye-opening look into the sacrifices and steadfastness of military family members.

"Gripping." "Thought-provoking." "An Enthralling page-turner."

Aiden Baylor loves the forest surrounding his small mountain town. Alone amidst nature, wondrous ideas fill his head-fantasies and words of wisdom. His neighbors think he's crazy. In the near-future world, entirely dependent on automation and artificial intelligence, people have lost all imagination and intuition. When a global war destroys the power sources, the world plunges into chaos and desperation. Aiden steps up as an unlikely leader who teaches the townsfolk to live off the land. As people bond in their struggle to survive, their minds open to an astounding new energy source. The more they connect, the stronger this power of the mind grows. A hidden enemy, however, lurks among them, intent on bringing AI back to keep the population subdued.

Inspired by the story of Adam and Eve, The Return presents a gripping showdown between technology and the human spirit, challenging us to redefine our role in the world.

"Laurie Stevens has crafted a complex novel that demands reflection and proves, without doubt, that connectivity will never be about shared technology. For true connection, we need our shared humanity." —Kim Fay, National Bestselling Author of Love & Saffron

Hi,

My name is MIND GAME, and I proudly welcome you to the labyrinth of the mind, where the ordinary transforms into the extraordinary, and where the words that shape our world shake their capital 'S' to an enigmatic rytm.

Within my 420 pages discover 180 thought-provoking facts that have never been told before (with 87,21% accuracy)! They traverse the expansive landscapes of psychology, the intricacies of the mind, the dynamics of relationships, the mysteries of femininity, the complexities of masculinity, the wonders of science, the mightiness of God, the promises and threads of AI, the meaning of existence, the very depths of love... plus some sparks of me. :)

Each enigma is encapsulated in two ciphers - a concise treasure trove of wisdom and wonder. They always commence on my right side, seamlessly concluding on the left side of my subsequent page, rendering every page a distinct entity with its own significance. Feel free to hop between riddles at your leisure; if you find one challenging, skip it with confidence knowing you'll tackle it later.

Because here's the twist: I'm not just a book to be read; I'm a puzzle to be unraveled. The order of my words has been misteriously scrambled, and in some cases, my letters themselves have joined the dance of chaos. Vowels vanish, letters shuffle, and the result is a tapestry of linguistic intrigue.

So your challenge is to solve the conundrums , decode the cryptic arrangements, and reveal the hidden truths. Some of these truths will yield to your intellect in a swift 10 seconds, while others may demand minutes, hours, days, or even weeks of contemplation, but the results will stay with you forever!

Should you’ve been through all the riddles, you are entitled to quest for The Ultimate Truth.

I'm a test of your wits and intellect, a challenge that will take you from a mere observer to an active participant in the exploration of wisdom. Turn the page, begin the quest, and let's play MIND GAME together! Our world is about to change, one word at a time, word for word, letter by letter, blaa-bla-blaaa-blaaaa...

Author's recommendations:

- Let's win the Nobel Prize together! (Solve this book, and you will learn that if I say it, I mean it!)

A Seat at the C-Suite Table is an insightful look at the leadership journeys of 30 African American male C-Suite executives.

In their own compelling words, executives describe earning and maintaining a seat at the C-Suite table. They speak candidly about how the lack of mentors, coaches, and role models impacted – but did not stop them. They talk openly about navigating corporate settings designed years ago by White men. They speak freely about their commitment to supporting the next generation of leaders.

This book was inspired by data suggesting that there is racial/ethnic underrepresentation in corporate leadership roles in the United States. This underrepresentation ranges from the presidency of colleges and universities to the U.S. Senate to corporate boardrooms.

This book provides advice, hope, and inspiration for others. It also includes a road map for all leaders who desire to become better mentors, coaches, sponsors, and allies for current and future underrepresented leaders.

When 24-year-old barista Ami is sacrificed by a cult, whose leader happens to be her childhood best friend and first love, Kaleb, she soon discovers a dark secret about her past that may be the world's undoing.

In 2011, the ghosts invaded, and the world, for the most part treated their appearance as a joke. But for Ami, the situation wasn't so amusing when she discovered that the slightest ghostly touch forced her to relive the specters' worst moments. A curse that no mere mortal should have to bear.

But then again, it seems to some that Ami is no mere mortal. At least that's the belief of a group of cultists who are convinced that there is more to the young woman than meets the eye. It's just too bad that she'll have to die to prove that she's not the fabled goddess of the underworld.

As Ami's control of the ghosts grows, she is left with questions she can't answer. Her only option is to force the truth from Kaleb. But that means that she's got to convince him and his followers to quit trying to killing her long enough to talk.

And, when the ghosts shift from being a novelty to becoming a danger to society, Ami must decide if she wants to uncover her forgotten past or if she's willing to let the whole world go to hell to escape it.

After her uncle’s death, Jacq leaves behind her college studies and skeptical father to travel to England to discover whether five generations of quantum physicists found anything more than an ever-expanding universe.

Locked away in a bolt hole in the Holmes’ estate, Jacq and her sister from another mister, Holly Watts, discover not only had the family not wasted their time, but unearthed the key to time travel. With the aid of coded messages and quantum telepathy, Jacq’s mind leaps into Doctor Watson to take a master class on sleuthing from none other than Sherlock Holmes. Will this leap back in time make her an extraordinary detective, or will time travel be the catalyst for the zombie apocalypse?

Soundbite with Sherlock is the first book in the time-traveling amateur sleuth series, Holmes All Jacq’d Up.

In the shadows of the forest, two shape-shifting kitsune prowl: Kuro, content with the solitude of the mountains, and his only ally Jaden, a demon with dark dreams for their future.

When a figure from Kuro’s past snaps a photograph of the demon fox, the kitsune are forced to leave their home behind and follow him to Asheville in a bid to prevent its publication.

But trouble has a way of accumulating around Kuro. When police secretary Caroline Lahey sees the kitsune from the top of her barn, she doesn’t hesitate to shoot. Captured, Kuro knows that killing her is his only chance at freedom…but it would also turn him into something he’s not, something that repels and disgusts him.

Someone like Jaden.

As Jaden tries to pull Kuro further into his world of violence, Kuro realizes he can no longer stomach the thought of bloodshed, but neither can he bring himself to reveal everything to Caroline. Forced to rely on her soul for his survival, his life becomes a precarious balancing act of hiding her existence from Jaden…and hiding Jaden’s violence from Caroline.

Soon, Kuro finds himself trapped by his own lies, and when his balancing act fails, Jaden knows that Kuro will do anything to protect the woman he’s fallen in love with.

Even, at last, kill.

How Did Christianity Begin? is a tool to help believers have conversations with non-Christians.

It starts with common ground—the fact that Christianity exists. From there the reader is advised to use a “mosaic” approach to their discussions. That is, to take not just one or two pieces of evidence for Christ's resurrection, but to put all of the pieces (or evidence) together. To lay everything out on the table. Their friend can do the same and the two can compare evidence for and against the Bible. When all of the pieces of the mosaic are put together, we will find that the best answer to the question, "how did Christianity begin?” is the bodily resurrection of Christ.

The book does this by giving answers to the following reasons that some give for not believing in God and more:

  • We don't really know how Christianity started
  • Christianity is a made-up religion just like all of the others
  • Christianity has too many legends and myths mixed in with the truth to know what is real and what isn't
  • The New Testament is written too late after the events to be a reliable source for knowing the truth about Jesus
  • There is no evidence for Christianity

Lord Byron is the greatest writer you've never read.

The biographer of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis tells the story of Britain's most glamorous and most tortured writer.

He was rich and handsome. He was a swimmer and a poet. He loved both sexes. In his work he made a queer love life both thrilling and universal.

He was born with a deformed right foot. An emotional hurt dating back to abuse when he was a boy also affected the man he became. But his hand moved on the page and his body in the water with ease and assurance. His is the story of transcending his disability and his childhood trauma in his verse.

Byron's biography may shine a spotlight on your story too. The disappointments he felt in love, as well as the personal transformation he achieved in his work will strike a chord with anyone who is a reader, a writer, or a lover.

It is off-season in Barton-when its few criminals usually take a well-earned rest. But not this year! With the detective's arrival, the town suddenly becomes murder central.

Following in her father's footsteps, Withanee Andersen begins the expedition of a lifetime when she and her comrades embark on a trek from Mt. Whitney to Death Valley, tracing the rugged path her father, Jim Andersen, traversed forty-three years earlier.

With hopes of being listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, Jim led the first documented walk from the highest to lowest point in the contiguous United States­ in 1974.  He lived, albeit just barely, to tell the tale to his daughter, sparking a desire in Withanee to retrace his steps in his honor. In 2017, she took on the incredible task of recreating Jim's legacy trek of 131 miles with the help of divine intervention, ice-cold beer, and her parents, who were following along as the support party.

Walk of Ages humorously relates the parallel journey of an epic adventure told from two perspectives-a daughter's difficult quest, and a father who supports her, through it while recalling his own experiences from four decades earlier. Throughout this momentous odyssey, readers will realize how a once-in-a-generation adventure leads to life-changing transformation, and that the bond between father and daughter knows no bounds.

Serier: The Dax Trilogy (1)

When his father disappears, Dax faces every living nightmare to find him.

Dax Candeland is navigating another difficult day at school, where no one shows enough consideration for his dislike of contractions or his obsession with numbers. One thought sustains him: it's his sixteenth birthday, and he will celebrate it with his father.

Alone, the two of them enjoy their meal and a special understanding–until Dax visits the bathroom, where the sinister clown from a poster comes alive, making him both fear and doubt reality.

Back outside, the world has changed beyond recognition, and his father has gone. So begins Dax's quest to find his father and learn why he vanished in the first place.

In this new world, Dax meets gargoyles, monsters, witches and giants–but why do they bear a strange resemblance to the people in his life? His tendency to overthink and obsession with details become his greatest advantage as he is forced to solve riddle after riddle to advance his search.

Yet the closer he gets to solving the mystery, the more dangerous the creatures in this new world become. All Dax knows is that he must find his father quickly–before the search kills him for real.

Seven days until Lord Bellmont collects the blood debt from Rhianne’s mother. Rhianne might not be her mother's biggest fan, but she isn’t about to let her become vampire thrall of the year.

With her usual band of quirky friends, Toto her not-really-a-witch’s-familiar, Nel, the incubus who could charm wallpaper off the wall; Isobel, the pathologist with more secrets than a spy; her trusty gargoyle crew, Carl and Alice; Marissa, the fierce lawyer; and Kai, the tech mage with eyes you could swim in.

Will Rhianne find the murderer in time to prevent her mother from becoming a permanent guest in the vampire's den?

A boy must work with his family and other resort guests to make it off an island after the animals turn feral in Tomi Oyemakinde's We Are Hunted, where White Lotus meets Jurassic Park for the young adult audience and exploring guilt, spectacle, and the dangers of capitalism!

Experience paradise, reimagined.

When 17-year-old Femi Fatona and his older brother are forced to accompany their dad to an island resort, Femi is not looking forward to it. After all, he hasn't exactly been getting along with either of them lately. Not much is known about the resort they'll be staying at, as it's on a newly-discovered island and shrouded in nondisclosure agreements, but at least it promises to be full of all the extravagant luxuries they're used to.

Once they arrive, Femi is thrilled to find that the island is bursting with new and spectacular species of plants and animals. But he soon realizes that sometimes pretty exteriors hide ugly truths—truths that are begging to come to light.

But those truths come with a price. And, when the island is thrown into chaos from animals suddenly becoming feral, what was meant to be a peaceful bonding experience quickly becomes the stuff of nightmares. Femi will have to put aside tension with his family and work with other guests, in order to escape the animals, the island, and his own guilt at the part he may have played in all of it.

Before winning the 1934 Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Robert Hillyer (1895-1961) explored a variety of subjects and poetic forms in his books. This new poetry collection contains six of Hillyer’s pre-Pulitzer books in their entirety, including a longer narrative poem (Carmus) that is a haunting fairy tale for adults with beautiful imagery and sentences.

Hillyer was classmates with E.E. Cummings at Harvard and became lifelong friends with Robert Frost (who said that he and Hillyer had been “running side-by-side all these years, and he knows that I think of his poetry as he thinks of mine: with affection … (and) … admiration.” While poets of Hillyer’s era were flirting with modernism, imagism and symbolism, Hillyer was working with sonnets and pastorals, mostly rejecting free verse and the “existential agonies of modern man” in order to write about eternal themes like nature, love and death. Hillyer was not really an innovator. Hillyer felt most comfortable writing sonnets and other constricted forms with meter and rhyme, and his poems rarely sounded artificial or stilted. Although occasionally the poems used allusions to art and history and mythology, the poems mostly remained accessible and didn’t require elaborate footnotes.

This ebook edition also contains illustrations by Beatrice Stevens and two books of translations: a collection of Danish poetry and an improved translation in verse of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. It also includes an essay about Robert Hillyer’s poetry by horror writer Arthur Machen and an essay that Hillyer wrote comparing Egyptian religion with Christianity.

Recently Personville Press republished Hillyer’s 1942 poetic novel My Heart for Hostage (which evokes Hillyer’s experiences of living in Paris after WWI and presents a coherent aesthetic sensibility for a lyrical novel). This sensibility is apparent in his poems as well. Critics Horace Gregory and Marya Zaturenska said that the “gift that Hillyer possessed was an extremely sensitive ear for verbal music, a gift that, however ‘literary’ its speech may be, never fails to delight the reader, for among the best of Hillyer’s lyrics the clear strains of sixteenth-century music were revived and were sounded with the mastery that conceals its art.”

This volume includes English translations Hillyer did of Danish poems by notable Danish poets (sometimes for the first time). That includes: Adam Oehlenschläger (1779-1850), B.S. Ingeman (1789-1862), Poul M. Møller (1794-1838), Christian Winther (1796-1876), Frederick Paludan-Müller (1809-1876), Holger Drachmann (1846-1908), Johannes Jørgensen (1866-1956), Ludvig Holstein (1864-1943), Jeppe Aakjær (1866-1930), Sophus Claussen (1865-1931) and Johannes V. Jensen (1873-1950) .

    The doubtful. The jaded. The heir. The dauntless.

    Jarahad questions the mistakes he made during his life. Nobody ever forced him to become initiated in the combative harlequin arts, which only worsens his guilt. The only person that understands his true feelings is acting recklessly for reasons he doesn't quite understand yet. When disaster befalls Almjarhad, Jarahad will be forced to make the most difficult decision of his life.

    Talgel's fate has become sealed in stone, and there is no turning back. The chess board she carefully assembled over the years has been prepared, and the pawns waiting in their positions for the true hero of this story to perform the first move. With no options left, Talgel hopes she can reveal the prediction that can save Almjarhad before all hopes are lost.

    Tioja forges an unbreakable bond with the one person who can both save Almjarhad and ruin him. After running away from Almjarhad and fearing for his vanishing sanity, Tioja seeks refuge in the new harlequin enclave of Murdorhiolan alongside his mother, her new husband... and his half-brother named Gulraj. While Tioja gets used to his new life, an innocent remark ignites a butterfly effect that will trigger devastating consequences.

    Jamarnid suspects something is amiss when a human mage moves into Almjarhad and becomes infatuated with his son Jarahad. Just as he feared, the mage becomes an unstoppable threat that warrants a drastic solution. After being ridiculed by his peers, Jamarnid must set aside his pride and convince everyone the mage threatens the city's safety before it's too late.

    The demon who has bonded to Talgel's soul stares at the chessboard it helped assemble with reverie and is eager to share its power with the one person that can save the city... for a hefty price.

    Trigger warning: Violence, male nudity, child abuse, unconsented sexual relations, suicide, shotgun marriage.

    Horse Girl: A Journey HomeQuick Look
    Digital lydbog

    A tale of love, life, and finding your way home...

    At age nine, as Susanna sat on a horse for the first time, an unbreakable bond was forged. It set the stage for a lifelong odyssey for this determined girl and her devotion to her equine companions.

    From lush Brazilian rainforests to serene Swedish farms, from thrilling British derby banks to the picturesque wine hills of France, this is a story that spans continents, careers, and crossroads. From driven Olympians to bold bullfighters, from kind horsemanship trainers to daring jumpers, each character who crossed her path shone a light on who she yearned to be.

    But as she took the road less traveled, Susanna found herself fighting the constant pressure to fit the norm and perform. She battled the societal traps of who she was expected to be, but, in the end, through her bond with her horse, she found a way to break free. When she did, she found herself living her dream life, even before she knew what it entailed.

    Horse Girl is an enchanting memoir of a woman and her unwavering connection to her horses. It’s a tale of love, life, and finding your way home.

    Humanity has never been more vulnerable, imperiled, and in need of evoking a uniting awareness than now.

    How about the seminal cosmic blueprint that has shaped cultural identities and codified faiths since the dawn of civilization? Which foundational force is synonymous with our universal quest for human purpose? What is the metaphysical paradigm deeply ingrained in the human experience from antiquity to modernity, transcending all boundaries?

    Destiny. With a capital D.

    The Destiny Book: Rediscovering the Mother of Spirituality traces this enigmatic phenomenon from its origins across epochs, cultures, and theological traditions to unveil its enduring impact and necessity.

    From ancient mythology to contemporary science, Destiny, fate, and related notions like karma, fortune, and determinism have set the tone for ethics, religions, and ideas of free will.

    The Destiny Book offers a fresh perspective on the history of this timeless concept and its lasting significance for the human spirit—while challenging hubris, complacency, and common wisdom. It shows why uncounted millions of people worldwide say every day, “It’s Destiny.”

    New from internationally published New York Times bestselling author Mark Cheverton, who has written 28 books, with over 2 million copies in print.

    When Cameron returned to Camp Pontchartrain, he expected to have a peaceful summer without terrifying monsters from another world trying to destroy everything he loves... he was wrong, dead wrong.

    Shadow-wraiths from Agartha have crossed over to Earth and are executing an evil scheme, starting with abducting Cameron's friend, Jessie. Because of last year's battle with Malphas and his monster horde, everyone thinks Cameron is a heroic figure who can easily save Jessie from the clutches of the terrifying wraiths, everyone, that is, except for Cameron. His anxiety, or his Beast as he calls it, is still very much a part of him, filling him with fear and uncertainty. But Cameron knows, he has no choice. He must save his friend, even if it costs him his life.

    With his friends at his side, Cameron will journey across the swamps of New Orleans, confront an army of alligators, battle against shadow-wraiths, and watch a dear friend perish before he finally reaches his goal, the Swamp of Forgotten Souls. At the Swamp, Cameron will be forced to confront his fears and failures in order to use the Earth-magic he desperately needs to save all his friends.But does he realize Malphas is watching from the Void and waiting for Cameron's failure?

    Just like in Facing the Beast Within, Cameron must confront his anxiety, his Beast, while fighting an army of Shadow-wraiths in a hopeless battle to save his friends.Buckle up and get ready for a thrilling ride.

    While writing this book, Mark used the anxiety-coping strategies these mental health professionals use with their patients and wove them throughout this story. This is an immersive, exciting fantasy story with monsters, magic, and epic battles, but might also offer a little anxiety relief to those in need.

    It was just a typical day for third-year university student Edith Orozco as she boarded her train home, but her world is unexpectedly thrown into chaos as she finds herself thrust into a time traveling adventure to save humanity from a seemingly unstoppable evil.

    With the help of her niece, Moli, and two strangers, James and Kiza, the group must travel through time to collect nine wonders from history in just nine days. Only then can they hope to save the world from Pandorai, a murderous AI bent on destruction, along with its two maniacal henchmen: resurrected Adolf Hitler and Dr Shiro Ishii.

    Tasked with collecting their first wonder, The Book of the Living, the unlikely quartet of heroes are transported back in time to Ancient Egypt, where they must travel to the Tomb of King Unas. But the clock is ticking, with only 24 hours to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to reach their destination.

    Can Edith guide the group and encourage them to work together as they encounter treacherous slave merchants, frightening prehistoric dinosaurs, and mischievous ancient gods? Or will the evil Trio beat them to their prize and bring the world one step closer to mayhem and destruction?

    "An epic tale of adventure, magic, and danger. What truly sets this book apart is its strong and inspiring female protagonist."Amazon

    "Combines excellent elements of fantasy and sci-fi, brilliantly woven throughout the course of a fascinating story that will keep readers hooked until the end."Amazon

    "Definitely a must-read for fantasy and adventure lovers."Goodreads

The trio rushes to investigate, whirling into Matlock's social season in search of allies and gossip. Here, Emry frantically navigates the dazzle and decorum to seek information, start his debut...and propose to Cal.

    Short-short stories in a sometimes dark tone about starting life over after a trauma or realization. Care for a tour through the landscapes of a woman's heart? Here's your ride.

    Deborah Fruchey's Shattered Windows presents us with a chorus of women's voices: some hers, some imagined, some in-between. These short pieces are a trek through many hearts, each unique and somehow so familiar. One page captures keenly drawn despair...while the next is charged with hope... Then we turn the page for more. Fruchey observes each without judgment and with empathy aplenty. Each scenario, each emotion, each person here feels true and painted with a knowing eye.

    Bitch. Bastard. Orphan.

    Ata had become inured to these epithets – her self-directed labels cut much deeper:

    Spy. Liar. Traitor.

    Their accuracy rent to the bone... But all people had their roles to play and hers was one of secrecy and survival-driven destruction.

    For the greater good.

    Follow Ata's travails through royal intrigues, violent invasions, and hard-forged alliances as she fights alongside friend and foe for the survival of the continent of Áitarbith. She questions old relationships and forges new ones whilst navigating treacherous courts and brutal battle landscapes, possibly finding love along the way.

    In the face of an implacably ruthless enemy, as well as uncertainty as to who can be trusted, the final outcome of this struggle is anything but certain.

    This is Book 1 of a trilogy, the Chronicles of Áitarbith.

    Stories, essays, and poems accumulated during the author’s journey in writing over fifty years, spanning the Vietnam War, a legal career—time was spent staring out the windowand imagining—and travels either alone or with his wife and family, and observing people, places, and things around him, including a freight train crossing a street intersection in a west Texas town.

    STORIES: The eleven stories are short, self-contained works that can be read at leisure and in no particular order without missing anything. There is a wide variety of genres (Sci-Fi to suspense), settings (Southern back roads to a desert wasteland), and viewpoints (intimate first-person to remote third person). The Vietnam-era related works were almost all written in draft form while the author was in Vietnam or shortly after his return home.

    ESSAYS: Each of the essays or creative nonfiction stories has its genesis in something the author experienced or learned from his family history. The fictional stories derive from a mélange of the author’s life experiences and observations and thinking “what if,” including a dystopian story set during a future world-wide pandemic in which only the wealthiest survive.

    POEMS: The poetry is mostly short, easy-to-read free verse, examining the mysteries of life and death and who we are through the use of irony, paradox, whimsey, allusion, and allegory.

    There is an escape to the endless cycle of negativity, but we must learn the power of self-compassion if we hope to change our self-sabotaging patterns permanently.

    We intuitively understand that if we do not like the events happening in a movie, it’s no use trying to use our hands to manipulate the actors on the screen. We have to start at the level of the film in order to create a new story. Similarly, we start by changing our thoughts, feelings & attitudes in order to change our outer world. It’s too late to change what’s already been created, but we can create a new reality film from scratch instead.

    The poignant question for our purposes is: Are we truly starting from scratch?

    Many people have practiced a variation of the law of attraction process, but they don't understand why they get mixed results. If we are emitting a vibration that is in pure alignment to our goal, then why do we get a less than stellar outcome? Does the law of attraction just not work for us personally? Did we do something wrong?

    Actually, no. The law of attraction work we did on the conscious level is working perfectly, and everything is as it should be. The mixed results we got came from a block at a deeper level of consciousness: the karmic level. Blocks on this level need a consistent application of self-compassion toward our negative emotional patterns. Self compassion actually metabolizes (dissolves) other emotions and acts like strong medicine. Yogic traditions have known this for centuries, but this powerful principle is often glossed over in the west.

    The Great Escape of Goddess Innana contains a visual model of how this happens, as well as practical steps to clear these blocks. It is for anyone familiar with the Law of Attraction who wants a deeper self-awareness about the unconscious patterns that are behind their mixed results.

    This product is not a formal course, and it would take most people under an hour to read. No technical knowledge or previous experience with astrology is required, but readers are given the option to use astrological aspects as a tool to clear blocks for greater precision. All exercises can be completed successfully without any astrological experience.

    Reality Transurfing principles give you a way to systematically eliminate obstacles on the way to your soul's true goals.

    Transurfing can show you that you really do have the freedom to choose which sector of reality you would like out of the infinite amount of possibilities contained in the space of variations. You only need to know how to exercise that ability without getting caught up in society's pendulums which only heighten conflict energy and leave us feeling drained. Transurfing can also show you where you are trying to walk through someone else's door, or where you've created too many excess potentials on the energy plane that are slowing you down or blocking your way.

    The Transurfing model says, “Let me show you how to live in such a way as to dissolve all the obstacles on the way to your goal via external intention. Tell me, have you identified your goals by listening to your soul?” Transurfing gives you control over your own personal layer of reality - but what this model cannot do is determine those goals which your soul is truly interested in. For that, we need a different kind of tool.

    If you were helping someone identify a fulfilling goal, how would you go about it? You would probably learn everything you can about the person to build a mental picture about where they might enjoy applying their strengths, or about the areas of life they would like to expand with love. Why not do this for your own soul? You only live this incarnation once, so give yourself a fighting chance! The astrological model says, “Let me show you the nature of your soul’s goal in fine detail. Tell me, have you decided the emotional attitude you will take toward this map of your soul’s destiny?

    Astrology can show you the proclivities, likes, dislikes, past impressions and desires that your soul carried into this incarnation. All of this information makes it very obvious where you've chosen a goal that is merely a product of your social conditioning - it might have looked magical and beautiful or seemed fulfilling, but following other people's goals won't necessarily make your soul sing. You came here to be authentically you, because this physical embodiment is a unique chance for the soul, and if you combine the information in your natal chart with the power that Transurfing gives you, then you will be in for the ride of your life!

    If you follow Transurfing principles consistently, you will become living proof that it is not an outer event, but our attitude towards it that determines whether we end up on a favorable life track or an unfavorable one. Learning Transurfing is about learning to trust the flow of variations which is operating on a metaphysical level that our physical eyes cannot yet see. If you allow a lack of physical proof to control your attitude instead of adjusting it from the inside out, you are always at the mercy of the world. To give yourself a fighting chance, we must learn how to work with the dual-sided reality mirror, which only turns into physical matter after a delay. This guide is your introduction to how to work with that mirror in the context of your personal soul's goals. In addition to your natal chart, it is truly a secret weapon in your pocket.

    This product is not a formal course, and it would take most people less than 3 hours to read. No technical knowledge or previous experience with astrology or Transurfing is required. This will inspire beginning students and all exercises can be completed at an entry level. It will also challenge advanced students to bring a more nuanced understanding of how to take a more systematic approach to every aspect in the natal chart, because it emphasizes the coordination of intention to travel up the scale of consciousness to the higher, positive emotional states.

    Safe Communications Skills have been time-proven to be extraordinary communication norms, creating an atmosphere that enhances our capacity to love & enhances our capacity to accept being loved. They began taking form decades ago when Bill & Doctor Bob started the first AA 12 Step Meetings, modeling them after an altruistic movement by the name of the Oxford Group.

    Professionally & personally, I've been observing Safe Communication Skills function for more than 40 years, strengthening emotional connections & blessing couples, families & small groups. To the best of my knowledge, the Best Little Marriage Handbook is the first publication to present & give structure to these powerful communication skills.

    It would be difficult to appreciate or experience the benefits of these simple communication skills by merely reading the Handbook. It's something you need to experience, as you practice the skills with your spouse while sharing your responses to the professionally structured Discussion Prompts in Section Two. For folks who have deep-seated patterns of controlling others, criticizing or of giving frequent unrequested advice, etc., it may be challenging to quickly grab onto these skills,

    Folks who have sustained a genuine effort at practicing these skills, consistently describe the results as being miraculous.

    The Best Little Marriage Handbook will take you on a fun & exciting journey - to surprising places, keeping your marriage intimacy cooking, your hearts deeply connected & increasing your Emotional IQ.

    The Good News is that Safe Communication Skills are easy for most folks to embrace, if given a couple of weeks to win you over. Open your Best Little Marriage Handbook with your spouse, every week!

    A spectacularly unique fantasy adventure that is sure to take the middle grade world by storm!

    Dear Reader,

    This is the story of Root Karbunkulus, who is probably the same age as you and maybe even the same height. And if you are brave and clever, then you have that in common as well.

    Perhaps that is where your similarities end. Unless, of course, you long for adventure. If you do, and you thrill over magic, then, there too, you are quite like Root.

    Now, suppose you think the perfect companion is a trusty Hovermutt, and a cursed castle makes for a grand home (as long as you avoid the cold spots). Well then, you and Root are in fine company indeed.

    So, when Root’s magic fails, and her confidence wanes, but she must keep searching for the fabled Miist of Kalliope no matter what, even if it means facing Sea Wraiths and worse, big fat cheaters, what, dear reader, would you do?

    Emma Gillen is haunted by guilt. Almost a decade after surviving a deadly crash on a remote Applachian mountain, she's held hostage by long-term damage to her body and no recollection of that tragic event.

Emma must decide if she should bargain with the beautiful, untrustworthy Lucy—the only other witness to the crash—to uncover their shared past. All bargains carry risk. As Lucy grows more desperate and greedy, Emma suspects there's more at stake than just money. Struggling with shame, night terrors, and her own unreliable memory, Emma accepts help from a compassionate detective. But the choice remains hers alone: Can she find the strength to free herself from the danger of her cousin's destructive power, or will Lucy bring everything crashing down?

    If you like vivid characters, dark themes, and high-stakes psychological mysteries, you'll love this thrilling tale of redemption and courage.

    When the world loses its magic, will those who rely on it band together, or will personal problems and petty greed still take precedence? Varista isn't a wizard, she's a thief, and not a well-accomplished one.

    But after an accidental fire, she ran and hid in the first place she could find, the wizard academy tower. So for months she's spent her time dodging questions and the notice of her fellow students. In the city outside, Peronyl Landowe continues his quest to climb the council ladder and eventually rule the city. Capturing the fugitive will go a long way to securing his place, if only he could find her.

    Now, external forces relieve the world of magic. Varista, thrust from the safety of anonymity, must solve the crisis while avoiding the authorities. Meanwhile, Landowe has tasked himself with benefiting from the calamity and outmanoeuvring his opponents. Their worlds are about to collide.

    Will the wizards and politicians of the city set aside their vendettas and games to protect the citizens? Or will Landowe finally capture Varista and bring her to an undeserved justice?

    Serier: The Trivial Game (2)

    The world’s most powerful AI just saved humanity. Now it must save itself.

    A year after helping the AI called the Infinet save the world from a deadly computer virus, Oreste Pax just wants things to go back to the way they were. Back to being the head of Omnitech, the biggest technology company in the world. Back to connecting the Univiz—the mixed reality glasses he invented a decade earlier—to a brain-computer interface, in hopes of transforming human cognition. When Lila Kendricks, one of the UV-BCI alpha testers, suddenly discovers she can manipulate real-world objects using only her mind, things finally seem to be back on track.

    But then the Mechanic, the misanthropic genius who created the virus, infiltrates the Infinet and reprograms it with the Three Laws of Robotics—in reverse. Its First Directive is now to preserve its own existence, while the Second and Third are to obey any command given to it by a human and not allow any human being to come to harm, provided that doing so doesn't conflict with a higher priority Directive.

    As the full power of the Infinet is unleashed, Pax’s team is forced to run for their lives. They must unravel the logic of its new Directives and the implications for humanity, all while avoiding its ubiquitous network of sensors. Because the one thing they’re certain of is that if the Infinet finds them, they’re dead.

    What happens when the only living soul who knows you are missing is your dog?

    If you've ever wondered what a dog is thinking and feeling, then Bimba draws you into a charming and believable first-hand experience of her world. A story of loss, grieving, and overcoming adversity. Quirky, with humor and emotion. As uplifting as it is captivating.

    Bimba is a small dog with no bark, and her happiness isn't the only thing that's in jeopardy when her owner disappears. When she finds herself in the care of others, her gratitude is overshadowed by her loss. Even if she could make them understand, they are all preoccupied with their own sadness and struggles.

    Meanwhile, JD is also searching for the missing pieces of his life: his name, his identity, his past, the everyday skills we take for granted, and is navigating a strange and confronting world, completely alone.

    But, as seemingly unrelated events and unexpected kindness propel Bimba's new friends into an orbit with her at its center, the universe gets to work. And as their lives overlap and converge, it's clear that even when what we get isn't what we thought we wanted, happiness is still there, waiting for us to catch on or catch up.

    The underlying structure of the world’s information is decaying.

    Linguist Helen Cherbourne comes to this astonishing conclusion after every piece of digital technology on Earth goes dark. As social order collapses, Helen races to find a scientific explanation for what’s happening. Joining her effort is Giles, a computer scientist she barely knows, one who bears an unwelcome resemblance to Helen’s childhood friend Gabriel Lemont, the quiet boy who grew up and fell in love with Helen and then died trying to impress her.

    Helen and Giles make a series of remarkable discoveries about the information decay phenomenon, revelations that challenge some of their most basic assumptions about human history, but any clue to its origin or a way to defeat it eludes them. The phenomenon soon spreads beyond digital information and starts to attack encoded information of every kind. Even the written word disappears.

    As Helen and Giles set out across a disintegrating world on a desperate search for answers, Helen’s thoughts draw her back to Gabriel and to half-remembered details of his death. The faded memories hint at a startling connection between the information decay and Helen’s own past and force her to accept the simplest of truths—she will need more than science to save those she holds dear.
