  • Eden didn't expect Az. Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings. Yeah. So long, happily-ever-after. Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven. She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own. And that's only the beginning of the end.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Fallen angels. Undeniable attraction. A brewing war between Heaven and Hell. Discover the dangerously dark and deeply romantic Siders series, where angels fall and not all demons are evil. Get your copy today and delve into the addictive paranormal series everyone is talking about. If you like Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh, Gena Showalter, Stephanie Meyer, Jeaniene Frost, Rachel Vincent, Richelle Mead, Ilona Andrews, P.C. Cast, Jennifer L Armentrout, Lynsay Sands, Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, and Sherrilyn Kenyon, you'll love Leah Clifford! A TOUCH MORTAL - BOOK 1 Getting involved with an angel, especially a half-Fallen one, might not have been Eden's best idea. Still, she never thought a summer fling with Az would end up costing her mortality. Now, there's no way of telling what will happen when Eden's fingertips graze human skin. The power that builds inside her, Touch, strips away morals and logic. Some people only feel a high; others are overcome by their darkest thoughts. Worse, word's gotten around that her Touch can kill her own kind, a skill Luke and the Fallen are desperate to harness. The last thing Eden needs is the rumor to spread. Especially since it's true. With the Fallen closing in, and loyalties in doubt, Eden must rely on the guy who broke her heart to keep it beating. Working with the Upstairs, Az is determined to defeat Luke and win back more than just Eden's loyalty. But Eden will be damned, literally, before she lets him off the hook that easily. A TOUCH MORBID - BOOK 2 Eden saved Az. She went up against pure evil and won. But at what cost? With loyal friends suffering, and her chance at a future with Az disintegrating, new enemies are the last threat Eden needs. Especially with the Fallen after revenge. But when mortal paths start breaking apart, Eden knows the game has changed and all of humanity is now at stake. Kristen stayed out of the battle. She gave Eden the headstart she needed to save Az, and faced Gabriel's wrath when he found out. All because she couldn't chance her own secrets being exposed. Now, without intervention from Gabriel, madness slowly claims Kristen's mind. When desperation forces Kristen to consider a path she swore she'd put behind her, her only hope rests with a temptation too wicked to resist a second time. Because the only one who can save her sanity, may cost her soul. A TOUCH MENACING - BOOK 3 Angels want Eden dead. They're calling for the extermination of her kind, and she's at the top of the list. A strange plague is unraveling mortal paths and granted, it's the same plague that's turning Eden to ash, but Heaven isn't willing to wait. Eden's never been afraid to fight--for Az, for her friends, for her very life. But with the Fallen on her heels and all the powers of the Bound crushing down on her, is there anyone left she can truly trust? It's in the gray areas that heroes are made, in the spaces between life and death, good and evil. Heaven and Hell. What will Eden risk for the chance to be mortal again? What will she sacrifice for true love? Who will make it to the dramatic conclusion of Leah Clifford's epic trilogy alive?

Van Camp Company, once the largest local employer, provided pork and beans for thousands of troops entrenched in World War I, and the community's strong agricultural tradition sustained the town through the Great Depression. Author and historian Tom Rumer chronicles the challenges of growth and change in this history of Westfield and Washington Township.

Though his high school friends are well aware of his transition, many have yet to see Sebastian face-to-face. Instead of dreading the reunion, Sebastian looks forward to it—until his parents announce their divorce, his former best friend won’t speak to him, and he realizes he has become a stranger in a place that was once so familiar.

Now back in England, former soldier Matthew Longstaff and his Italian wife, Aurélie, are living quietly in the countryside when news arrives from France; their closest friend has disappeared. In London, fledgling spy-master Francis Walsingham suspects a traitor on Queen Elizabeth’s Privy Council. In France, the physician Gaetan Durant is held at a secret location and forced to produce forgeries which will trigger a war. In Rome, the pope prepares a Bull of Excommunication against Elizabeth. Everything is connected. Trapped in this game of plot and counter-plot, Longstaff must journey to Paris in pursuit of his missing friend – and evidence of the enterprise taking shape against protestant England. Meanwhile in London, Aurélie’s attempts to track down the traitor lead to a lethal battle of wits against London’s most notorious astrologer. Even if both succeed, it may already be too late. Wild, apocalyptic rumours race ahead of the separated lovers: of a lost Gospel in Christ’s own hand; of heretic queens and caged prophets. Only one thing seems certain – war is coming, an unholy inferno which threatens to consume all Europe…

    Sōseki
  • Author : John Nathan
  • Publisher : Columbia University Press
  • Pages : 327
  • ISBN : 9780231546973
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • Natsume Sōseki (1867–1916) was the father of the modern novel in Japan, chronicling the plight of bourgeois characters caught between familiar modes of living and the onslaught of Western values and conventions. Yet even though generations of Japanese high school students have been expected to memorize passages from his novels and he is routinely voted the most important Japanese writer in national polls, he remains less familiar to Western readers than authors such as Kawabata, Tanizaki, and Mishima. In this biography, John Nathan provides a lucid and vivid account of a great writer laboring to create a remarkably original oeuvre in spite of the physical and mental illness that plagued him all his life. He traces Sōseki’s complex and contradictory character, offering rigorous close readings of Sōseki’s groundbreaking experiments with narrative strategies, irony, and multiple points of view as well as recounting excruciating hospital stays and recurrent attacks of paranoid delusion. Drawing on previously untranslated letters and diaries, published reminiscences, and passages from Sōseki’s fiction, Nathan renders intimate scenes of the writer’s life and distills a portrait of a tormented yet unflaggingly original author. The first full-length study of Sōseki in fifty years, Nathan’s biography elevates Sōseki to his rightful place as a great synthesizer of literary traditions and a brilliant chronicler of universal experience who, no less than his Western contemporaries, anticipated the modernism of the twentieth century.

  • The most powerful empire in human history is rushing headlong toward destruction, ending our species’ supremacy in the known galaxy. Two men with widely divergent visions are on a mission to save civilization in at least one sector, far from the imperial capital where a demented ruler holds sway. The first, Jonas Morane, wants to create an impregnable vault containing humanity’s accumulated knowledge so those who survive the coming darkness can rebuild in decades instead of millennia. The other, Devy Custis, seeks to fend off collapse by founding a new empire in the Coalsack Sector, one free of the madness that caused this civil war. But will either resist the ravages of a genocidal empress, blood-maddened barbarians, and scheming admirals? Unfortunately, the vicissitudes of fate, abetted by greed and lust for power, could destroy both before they make their dreams a reality. Imperial Twilight is the second installment in Eric Thomson’s saga Ashes of Empire, the story of a desperate attempt to preserve one last spark of civilization so that humanity does not vanish from the galaxy.

  • John Baldoni's new book on the power of GRACE is a must read for all of us and particularly for anyone seeking to serve in a leadership role. In a world where good manners and courtesy sometimes seem to have gone out of style, this book is a practical guide for bettering relationships in all types of human connections. John Baldoni’s new book on the power of GRACE is a must read for all of us and particularly for anyone seeking to serve in a leadership role. In a world where good manners and courtesy sometimes seem to have gone out of style, this book is a practical guide for bettering relationships in all types of human connections. In a spiritual sense grace is unearned and as such, it is yours to use for the betterment of self and others. Grace as a gift is a catalyst for positive change to enable the greater good. Baldoni’s GRACE mixes stories of everyday heroes with interviews of notable thought leaders. The results give practical insights into generosity, respect, and compassion coupled with the energy and actions it takes to deliver on these virtues. Creating an acronym, Baldoni helps us distinguish the attributes of grace in Generosity, Respect, Action, Compassion and Energy. We can apply these universal truths in ordinary as well as extraordinary situations. The many examples of grace in everyday life allow us to witness human dignity and humility and remind us what wonders we can accomplish when working together. This is an inspiring collection of personal stories that combines wisdom with positive outcomes.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • "Firewatching and Nighthawking are comparable with the best of Michael Connelly’s Bosch books and James Lee Burke’s Robicheaux novels, and – naturally – Ian Rankin; but there’s an elegiac quality here that reminds me of Kate Atkinson’s Jackson Brodie titles and the Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French.”--AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window When a nighthawker on the hunt for antiquities instead uncovers the body of a foreign student, Detective Adam Tyler is pulled into a serpentine mystery of dangerous secrets, precious finds, and illegal dealings. You are a trespasser. You are a thief. You are a Nighthawker. Under the dark cover of night, a figure climbs over the wall of the Botanical Garden with a bag and a metal detector. It's a dicey location in the populous city center, but they're on the hunt--and while most of what they find will be worthless, it takes only one big reward to justify the risk. Only this time, the nighthawker unearths a body. . . . Detective Sergeant Adam Tyler and his newly promoted protégé, Detective Constable Amina Rabbani, are officially in charge of Cold Case Reviews. But with shrinking budgets and manpower in the department, both are shunted onto the murder investigation--and when the victim is identified as a Chinese national from a wealthy family, in the UK on a student visa, the case takes on new urgency to prevent an international incident.

But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn when one of the guests is found brutally murdered.
