She and Titan are celebrating the new year when trouble comes. Make that multiple troubles. When they can’t fight their way out of it, they flee—to their supernatural friends.

She and Titan expose one deception after another, and eventually what she finds shocks her to her core. And it might change everything forever. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-indent: 18.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}

When she screamed, bringing a lot of men into the room to look at her, it messed with the bear’s possessive nature over his mate. Worse, there was something wrong with his magic that along with the fact that he felt as hungry as a bear needing to hibernate made him grouchy and short-tempered. Melody had gotten help, and the men at Draoithe had rescued him. When a dragon tried to reach for her, murder was already on his mind. When the shifters chastised the dragon instead of him for killing He finally realized he might have landed in a good place. That was about the same time he realized he needed to claim his mate and apologize to the dragon he had murdered on the lawn. Griz needed reckoning for what happened. Luke wanted him as the last member of the Ruiri. If Griz got his reckoning, the pack would finally have enough magic to begin coalescing the mor tuath. Like the pristine land that Draoithe had chosen to build the pack, it needed to grow to be as numerous as the trees and as seemingly sheltered as the forest was to the wild world.

    Beowulf in Contemporary Culture
  • Author : David Clark
  • Publisher : Cambridge Scholars Publishing
  • Pages : 263
  • ISBN : 9781527544062
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Poetry
  • This collection explores Beowulf’s extensive impact on contemporary culture across a wide range of forms. The last 15 years have seen an intensification of scholarly interest in medievalism and reimaginings of the Middle Ages. However, in spite of the growing prominence of medievalism both in academic discourse and popular culture—and in spite of the position Beowulf itself holds in both areas—no study such as this has yet been undertaken. Beowulf in Contemporary Culture therefore makes a significant contribution both to early medieval studies and to our understanding of Beowulf’s continuing cultural impact. It should inspire further research into this topic and medievalist responses to other aspects of early medieval culture. Topics covered here range from film and television to video games, graphic novels, children’s literature, translations, and versions, along with original responses published here for the first time. The collection not only provides an overview of the positions Beowulf holds in the contemporary imagination, but also demonstrates the range of avenues yet to be explored, or even fully acknowledged, in the study of medievalism.

  • Formed by a small group of university students in the early 1980s, Studio Gainax is now one of the most adventurous and widely esteemed anime companies on the scene. And it is fascinating for its unique approach to animation. Formal experimentation, genre-straddling, self-reflexivity, unpredictable plot twists, a gourmet palate for stylishness, proverbially controversial endings, and a singularly iconoclastic worldview are some of the hallmarks. This documentation of the studio’s achievements provides a critical overview of both the company and its films: in-depth examinations of particular titles that best represent the company’s overall work, including television series such as Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and Neon Genesis Evangelion, and feature films such as Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise and Gunbuster vs. Diebuster. Each chapter highlights the contribution made by a specific production to the company’s progress.

    Love and the Fighting Female
  • Author : Allison P. Palumbo
  • Publisher : McFarland
  • Pages : 245
  • ISBN : 9781476639772
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Performing Arts
  • The fighting female archetype--a self-reliant woman of great physical prowess--has become increasingly common in action films and on television. However, the progressive female identities of these narratives cannot always resist the persistent and problematic framing of male-female relationships as a battle of the sexes or other source of antagonism. Combining cultural analysis with close readings of key popular American film and television texts since the 1980s, this study argues that certain fighting female themes question regressive conventions in male-female relationships. Those themes reveal potentially progressive ideologies regarding female agency in mass culture that reassure audiences of the desirability of empowered women while also imagining egalitarian intimacies that further empower women. Overall, the fighting female narratives addressed here afford contradictory viewing pleasures that reveal both new expectations for and remaining anxieties about the "strong, independent woman" ideal that emerged in American popular culture post-feminism.

    Christopher Lee: The Loneliness of Evil
  • Author : Stephen Mosley

  • Genre : Performing Arts
  • When Sir Christopher Lee passed away at the age of 93 in 2015, it was truly the end of an era. He was the last of the great horror stars. This book is a comprehensive overview of Lee's work in the horror genre, including movies, books, audio recordings and video games. As well as providing in-depth production histories and critical analysis, new interviews have been conducted with Lee's co-workers (some of them speaking here for the first time), which shed fresh light upon the man and his work. Few actors spanned the generations with more lasting appeal than Christopher Lee. From his ventures with Hammer-whose swift gradation of flesh and blood into a staid 1950s cinema broke new ground-to his work, in the next century, on Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and numerous interactive formats, Lee was constantly abreast of advancements in his industry. Consequently, this book can be read not only as an alternative history of the Horror Film, but also of the myriad developments within cinema itself.
