The Burning Dark by Adam Christopher Summary

Adam Christopher's dazzling first novel, Empire State, was named the Best Book of 2012 by SciFi Now magazine. Here he explores new dimensions of time and space in The Burning Dark. Back in the day, Captain Abraham Idaho Cleveland had led the Fleet into battle against an implacable machine intelligence capable of devouring entire worlds. After saving a planet, and getting a bum robot knee in the process, he finds himself relegated to one of the most remote backwaters in Fleetspace, overseeing the decommissioning of a semi-deserted space station. The station's reclusive commandant is nowhere to be seen. Persistent malfunctions plague the station's systems while interference from a toxic purple star makes even ordinary communications problematic. Alien shadows and whispers seem to haunt the lonely corridors and airlocks, fraying the nerves of everyone aboard. Isolated and friendless, Cleveland reaches out to the universe via an old-fashioned space radio, only to tune in to a strange, enigmatic signal: a woman's voice that echoes across a thousand light-years of space. But is the transmission just a random bit of static from the past—or a warning of an undying menace beyond mortal comprehension? "Builds tension expertly. Claustrophobic in mood but with the scope of great space opera, this is SF you will want to read with the light on."—Library Journal, starred review, on The Burning Dark At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Now her parents have suddenly taken an interest in everything she does, and their timing couldn't be worse. Sasha's father wants her to become BFFs with snooty Alyssa Turner, who hates Krystal for stealing her boyfriend. Then there's Antoine Watson, the boy Sasha has liked forever, the boy her parents would never approve of. But with the dark side getting more dangerous by the day, and the Mystyx's own powers growing in unexpected ways, Sasha is facing choices that could affect her friends, her love life—and even her destiny….

The Shadows of Auldham by Sylvie Danielle Matias Summary

Celina was born and raised in Romania. She receives a summer scholarship in Scotland although she is not a top student. She believes is because her mother was murdered, and it is a pity gift. In Scotland, the students are hosted in the Seacliff Mansion, a very old house built inside the walls of the Auldham Castel. The legends speak about Auldham Castle as being the headquarters for the followers of Saint Baldred that for many centuries fought the evil forces and demons serving the fallen angel Morfris. Just arrived and Celina starts to hear voices and has visions of people that nobody else sees. Then she discovers that she is good at guessing names for those that call upon her. Later on, she realizes that she is conjuring demons and by giving them a name, they get a human body and an entrance into this world. She will have to find a way to deal with these demons, with Morfris, her unrestrained emotions, and the grief for her murdered mother. It is a dark story talking about good and evil and the choices we make. About the human struggle to be accepted and loved, and how sometimes demons are born out of grief and loneliness and are not always there to hurt us. A dark story about shadows, fury, and loss. You will experience thrills, murders, mystery, the creation of demons, and the Battle between Good and Evil. What is the author saying about this novel: This is a story born in pain and despair and though it was not physical it was the strongest influence and best teacher of my life. This is the most powerful, emotional story I’ve written so far. I started working on it a long time ago but after many years, when the pain was gone and I found peace from the many demons that haunted me, I decided to share it with the world. The novel was built on many levels: you have the real-physical level, then the feeling-emotional level, only to dive deeper into the psychological level. I promise you, if you read this book many times (at a certain distance in time) you will see/feel/think it differently.

The Floating Egg by Roger Osborne Summary

The Floating Egg begins with the search for an alchemist's secret, and ends with the re-imagination of a past world. Each chapter is connected to a particular corner of north-east England, and each explores the uncertain line where myth is dissolved into science, and belief gives way to knowledge. Different episodes show how the fall of Constantinople converted the common rock of the Yorkshire cliffs into a source of extraordinary wealth and power, and how this in turn uncovered the inhabitants of a succession of past worlds; how a stone falling from the sky near this same coast changed the minds of all the natural philosophers of Europe; and how a new science was born on the top of the tower of York Minster. We learn about the cloak-and-dagger world of fossil trading in the town of Whitby; and we see the entire life-work of a forgotten scientific genius who died from consumption at the age of twenty-five, having revolutionised his science. The stories move from documentary accounts to fictional recreations of historic events, from contemporary writing and illustrations to present-day reflection. By using different ways of describing the world of scientific endeavour, the author has produced a fascinating visually beautiful and highly entertaining book which allows us to witness the birth of a new science - the science of geology.

Dark Shadows by Joanna Lillis Summary

Dark Shadows is a compelling portrait of Kazakhstan, a country that is little known in the West. Strategically located in the heart of Central Asia, sandwiched between Vladimir Putin's Russia, its former colonial ruler, and Xi Jinping's China, this vast oil-rich state is carving out its place in the world as it contends with its own complex past and present. Journalist Joanna Lillis paints a vibrant picture of this emerging nation through vivid reportage based on 17 years of on-the-ground coverage, and travels across the length and breadth of this enigmatic country that lies along the ancient Silk Road and at the geopolitical and cultural crossroads where East meets West. Featuring tales of murder and abduction, intrigue and betrayal, extortion and corruption, this book explores how a president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, transformed himself into a potentate and the economically-struggling state he inherited at the fall of the USSR into a swaggering 21st-century monocracy. A colourful cast of characters brings the politics to life: from strutting oligarchs to sleeping villagers, from principled politicians to striking oilmen, from crusading journalists to courageous campaigners. This new edition features two additional chapters covering the aftermath of Nazarbayev's fall from power in 2019; the Chinese government's repressions against the Kazakhs of Xinjiang as part of its crackdown on Muslim minorities; and an Afterword reflecting on the tumultuous events of January 2022 in Almaty. Traversing dust-blown deserts and majestic mountains, taking in glitzy cities and dystopian landscapes, Dark Shadows conjures up Kazakhstan as a living, breathing place, full of extraordinary people living extraordinary lives.

The Hunter and the Old Woman by Pamela Korgemagi Summary

The intertwined story of a cougar and a man that portrays the strength, vulnerability, and consciousness of two top predators. Not since Life of Pi have we encountered such transcendence or walked so fully in the footsteps of a big cat. The “Old Woman” lives in the wild, searching for food, raising her cubs, and avoiding the two-legged creatures who come into her territory. But she is more than an animal — she is a mythic creature who haunts the lives and the dreams of men. Joseph Brandt has been captivated by the mountain lion’s legend since childhood, and one day he steps into the forest to seek her out. A classic in the making, The Hunter and the Old Woman is a mesmerizing portrait of two animals united by a shared destiny.

The Complete Works of Charles Dickens by Charles Dickens Summary

It is impossible to overstate the importance of British novelist CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) not only to literature in the English language, but to Western civilization on the whole. He is arguably the first fiction writer to have become an international celebrity. He popularized episodic fiction and the cliffhanger, which had a profound influence on the development of film and television. He is entirely responsible for the popular image of Victorian London that still lingers today, and his characters-from Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge, from Miss Havisham to Uriah Heep-have become not merely iconic, but mythic. But it was his stirring portraits of ordinary people-not the upper classes or the aristocracy-and his fervent cries for social, moral, and legal justice for the working poor, and in particular for poor children, in the grim early decades of the Industrial Revolution that powerfully impacted social concerns well into the 20th century. Without Charles Dickens, we may never have seen the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Upton Sinclair, or even Bob Dylan. Here, in 30 beautiful volumes-complete with all the original illustrations-is every published word written by one of the most important writers ever. The essential collector's set will delight anyone who cherishes English literature...and who takes pleasure in constantly rediscovering its joys. This volume contains Pictures from Italy-an 1846 travelogue featuring delightful observations on the street life of the great cities of that land-and American Notes, a journal of Dickens's 1842 visit to the United States and Canada, the trip that provided the inspiration for his novel Martin Chuzzlewit.

Finnegan's Week by Joseph Wambaugh Summary

A toxic spill causes a lethal chain reaction for a San Diego cop in this “very funny” New York Times bestseller by the author of The Choirboys (Kirkus Reviews). Fin Finnegan, a San Diego police detective and wannabe actor heading straight for a midlife meltdown, is assigned a routine truck theft that turns into a toxic chemical spill, setting off a bizarre chain reaction of death and murder on both sides of the Mexican border. Fin is forced to team up with Nell Salter, a sexy female investigator, as well as an equally fetching US Navy investigator who wants to learn all that Fin can teach her—and that’s saying a lot. The New York Times Book Review called it “a frolic, a joy, a hoot, a riot of a book.” And Entertainment Weekly said, “superbly crafted and paced, deliciously funny, but fundamentally, as always, deadly serious.”

Dreams of the Son by Tawanda Chingombe Summary

The story focuses on the protagonist, Mwana Mutota, who is a descendant of an ancient bloodline of kings of the Great Stone Empire. The son is in constant conflict with his conscious and subconscious mind since, in his dreams, he finds solace and peace, and this is embodied in the f irst scene, The Castle in the Sky. This is unlike when he awakens and finds life futile and existential, as evidenced by the second scene, Return to the Earth Realm. Dreams therefore present the highest form of existence as one is in their truest form and bound by no rules, sin, or flesh and present the only peace in the protagonists life. Life therefore revolves around the conflict of the internal (the soul that is only free in dreams) and the external (the body that is trapped on earth) that drives the protagonist to the brink of insanity as the plot unfolds. The Great Stone Empire presents an empire that, through colonialism and corruption, is economically and socially depleted to the point of widespread unemployment and poverty. Mwana Mutotaor rather The Son, as he prefers to call himselfon the request of Chaminuka (the guardian spirit of Nubian empires), is crowned king under the wings of the premiere of the empire (the last defiant Nubian leader against the west). The underlying battle of the story is of the sons of light versus the sons of darkness, a story that began from the dawn of time and is still ongoing. This is embodied in Mwana Mutota (the son of light) and his battle with Adam (the son of darkness), the deadly assassin hell-bent on ending Mwanas life. Gladys is Mwana Mutotas love,and yet they have not seen in each other in years. The platonic relationship presents the struggle of pure love in a corrupted world, and the desire to once more be together is Mwanas ultimate hope in life. Gladys is the descendant of the Mojaji queen who, in a past life, was married to the Mutota king; and they were separated through conspiracy and treachery. Gladys Mojaji and Mwana Mutota, therefore, represent mediums of the greatest spirit of the empire, which is Chaminuka, and form part of his trinity and their reuniting in the Earth realm represents a return to a lost virtue in the universe of the highest form, which is love. The last scene is called Return to Eden, as it captures a pure and lost Nubian love as the bodies and souls of the Mutota and Mojaji king and queen once more reunite. A perfect harmony is restored in the universe, and the two souls reunite in the spirit world. They walk hand in hand in the full allure of a spiritual garden full of the beauty of nature, and the two embrace in the earth realm. And the story reaches an end (for now).

The English Lakes by W. T. Palmer Summary

The present book, it must be understood, treats the English Lakes rather apart from various other elements comprised in what is known as the Lake District. There is so much to say of the waters and their immediate surroundings that no space has remained to describe mountain, pass, and tarn in the manner their beauties merit. Other limits to the book are due to the writer’s promiscuity of taste. I am interested in most things—antiquities, fauna, flora, sports, geology, entomology, and the like; but in not one of these subjects have I that erudite knowledge which might render my work of profit. This book is written to interest those who love out-of-doors without claiming any particular study there. Of the paintings—I can only commend them to notice. In my humblest manner I assert that only an artist who feels the beauty of his environment thoroughly could produce work so stamped with the innate character of our Lakeland.

Dead Floating Lovers by Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli Summary

Fans of Louise Penny will love the Emily Kincaid mysteries by Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli! “A mystery that keeps you guessing, together with the story of a woman slowly finding her voice” —Kirkus Reviews With a murderer behind bars, Emily Kincaid is finally settling into what she hopes will be a peaceful new home in the remote woods of northern Michigan and a burgeoning career as a mystery writer. Until foul-weather friend Deputy Dolly Wakowski shows up on her doorstep with frantic tales of a dead body and demands her help. The receding waters of a local lake have revealed a bullet-pierced skull and a keepsake, and both could belong to a man Dolly once loved—and lost. As Emily reluctantly agrees to help, another set of bones surface—this time of an Odawa Indian girl. It’s not long before Emily finds herself wading through Dolly’s painful past and digging into the town’s dark history, all the while dodging threats from an outraged Odawa leader who may be protecting more than just sacred burial rites. When the connection between the two victims points to an ugly truth that threatens to unravel Dolly’s world, Emily vows to sort through the clues and find a killer, even if it breaks Dolly’s heart—or costs them both their lives. Rave reviews for the Emily Kincaid Mysteries: Dead Dogs and Englishmen A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2011! “Buzzelli will have you packing your bags for a move to northern Michigan.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Emily is a detective for our times: She can’t afford health care, but she can make flour out of cat tails and work three jobs at once.” —Christian Science Monitor Dead Sleeping Shaman “Buzzelli’s well-crafted third Emily Kincaid . . . [features] sharp prose and spirited characterizations.” —Publishers Weekly “The appeal of this third in the series comes both from Emily—a likable character forging a new life after her divorce—and the evocatively described, nicely detailed small-town setting.” —Booklist Praise for A Most Curious Murder: “Fans of [Lewis] Carroll will delight in Zoe’s flights of fancy, and the northern Michigan setting in all its splendor is a charmer . . . an entertaining series with a quirky premise and captivating characters.” —Library Journal “This quirky, clever cozy series launch . . . [is] hard to resist.” —Publishers Weekly “Quirky main characters, lyrical dialogue and a story sure to appeal to bookworms as well as cozy mystery fans are all elements that give this novel a distinctive voice. A clever mystery and intriguing supporting cast round out the mix.” —RT Book Reviews (four star review)

Goethe's Theory of Colours by Wolfgang von Goethe,Anna Magdalena Johannsen Summary

It became necessary to connect all these incongruous parts and additions by the strangest galleries, halls and passages. All damages, whether inflicted by the hand of the enemy or the power of time, were quickly made good. As occasion required, they deepened the moats, raised the walls, and took care there should be no lack of towers, battlements, and embrasures. This care and these exertions gave rise to a prejudice in favour of the great importance of the fortress, and still upheld that prejudice, although the arts of building and fortification were by this time very much advanced, and people had learnt to construct much better dwellings and defences in other cases. But the old castle was chiefly held in honour because it had never been taken, because it had repulsed so many assaults, had baffled so many hostile operations, and had always preserved its virgin renown. This renown, this influence lasts even now: it occurs to no one that the old castle is become uninhabitable. Its great duration, its costly construction, are still constantly spoken of. Pilgrims wend their way to it; hasty sketches of it are shown in all schools, and it is thus recommended to the reverence of susceptible youth. Meanwhile, the building itself is already abandoned; its only inmates are a few invalids, who in simple seriousness imagine that they are prepared for war. Thus there is no question here respecting a tedious siege or a doubtful war; so far from it we find this eighth wonder of the world already nodding to its fall as a deserted piece of antiquity, and begin at once, without further ceremony, to dismantle it from gable and roof downwards; that the sun may at last shine into the old nest of rats and owls, and exhibit to the eye of the wondering traveller that labyrinthine, incongruous style of building, with its scanty, make-shift contrivances, the result of accident and emergency, its intentional artifice and clumsy repairs. Such an inspection will, however, only be possible when wall after wall, arch after arch, is demolished, the rubbish being at once cleared away as well as it can be. To effect this, and to level the site where it is possible to do so, to arrange the materials thus acquired, so that they can be hereafter again employed for a new building, is the arduous duty we have undertaken in this Second Part. Should we succeed, by a cheerful application of all possible ability and dexterity, in razing this Bastille, and in gaining a free space, it is thus by no means intended at once to cover the site again and to encumber it with a new structure; we propose rather to make use of this area for the purpose of passing in review a pleasing and varied series of illustrative figures.
