Betrayed by the love of her life at sixteen, causing her to flee her home, Amber Daniels’ taste in men hasn’t improved over time. With a bitter divorce under her belt, she returns home to support her sisters and dying mother.

Now pack alpha, he’s no longer an untried teen, but still wholly unprepared for Amber’s return to Hollow Mountain. He lost her once. No amount of pack politics, family strife, or alpha obligations will make him let her go a second time. He’ll do whatever it takes to claim and protect his human mate. Even battle neighboring wolves using anything at their disposal to start a war. They don’t fight fair…and neither will Desmon.

The Fallen Moon by Ian Watson Summary

The second and concluding volume of Ian Watson's extraordinary epic, The Book of Mana. Kaleva is Earth's first and only interstellar colony, discovered by Lucky Sariola who was transported there by an Ukko, a mysterious asteriod-like entity that responds to stories told to it - in Lucky's case, those of her Finnish grandmother. Now Queen Lucky, half-mad and newly widowed, is obsessed by relocating that Ukko - but this is potentially disastrous, as the snakelike alien Isi are also on its trail as part of their design to enslave humans. Understanding this, one of Lucky's daughters (with obsessions of her own) crowns herself rival queen. A summer turns into unseasonable winter and elysian peace turns to bitter civil war and Ukko, once more, has a role to play in the history of Kaleva.

Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan,Ann Druyan Summary

“Fascinating . . . memorable . . . revealing . . . perhaps the best of Carl Sagan’s books.”—The Washington Post Book World (front page review) In Cosmos, the late astronomer Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the magnificent mystery of the Universe and made it accessible to millions of people around the world. Now in this stunning sequel, Carl Sagan completes his revolutionary journey through space and time. Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race finally broke into a radically new frontier—space. In Pale Blue Dot, Sagan traces the spellbinding history of our launch into the cosmos and assesses the future that looms before us as we move out into our own solar system and on to distant galaxies beyond. The exploration and eventual settlement of other worlds is neither a fantasy nor luxury, insists Sagan, but rather a necessary condition for the survival of the human race. “Takes readers far beyond Cosmos . . . Sagan sees humanity’s future in the stars.”—Chicago Tribune

Your Story in the Stars by Trish MacGregor Summary

"The motion of the planets in relation to your Sun sign describes your evolution as a human being from birth to death. Once you understand the nature of the planets and the broad themes of the Sun signs, astrology becomes another way of telling the story. And in this story, you're the protagonist, the main player."—from the Introduction Astrologer Trish MacGregor breaks new ground with an accessible, entertaining way to understand—and make use of—the astrological information contained in your birth date. With clear language and plenty of examples, Your Story in the Stars explains how your Sun sign represents a theme for your life's story—for example, Aries lives out a warrior theme, Cancer is an intuitive nurturer, Libra is a mediator. Factor in the other planets and their positions on your birthday, and a deeper sense of self emerges. Add to that clear dates when planets will move from one position to another ("transits") and you can even predict "plot twists" in your future. This fun, authoritative book makes astrology relevant for the novice and even more useful for the passionate fan.

Clues from the Couch by Laird R. Blackwell Summary

The detective story--the classic whodunit with its time-displacement structure of crime--according to most literary historians, is of relatively recent origin. Early in its development, the whodunit was harshly criticized for its tightly formula-bound structure. Many critics prematurely proclaimed "the death of the whodunit" and even of detective fiction altogether. Yet today, the genre is alive, as contemporary authors have brought it into modern times through a significant integration of elaborate character development and psychology. With the modern psychological detective story emerging from the historical cauldron of detective fiction and early psychology, the genre continues to develop a complexity that reflects and guides the literary sophistication needed. This book, the first of its kind, analyzes over 150 whodunit novels and short stories across the decades, from The Moonstone to the contemporary novels that saved the genre from an ignominious death

Exquisite Poetry by Mario A. Charity, Sr. Summary

Journey into a world of the Alpha & Omega. If you have never been in love you will know what it feels like through True Love. If you have been or have seen someone hurt, Betrayal will speak volumes. So much Passion it sends chills down your spine. With the Joy felt, the sun will shine bright. So much Pain you will hear the thunder. Entrapped Never knowing which door to open or close, trapped, trapped within myself... Mustard Seed One morning I awoke still living deep within sin. God said...“This is your day son, If you just believe” I cried, “How Lord, how...” Embraced An invisible romance, a feeling for not just a word, a love that I hold to myself... Betrayal of Love Betrayal of love, so heavy so deep, my heart is crushing beneath my feet... Unforgotten Pains Unforgotten pains thoughts from yesteryear a love grimace backwards, ascend an emotional mountain as cynical as the lowest valley... Rarely Pure Rarely pure is our weakness. Often we are sullied and so full of guilt, blemishes fall from our affected heart.

Saturn from Cassini-Huygens by Michele Dougherty,Larry Esposito,Stamatios Krimigis Summary

This book is one of two volumes meant to capture, to the extent practical, the scienti?c legacy of the Cassini-Huygens prime mission, a landmark in the history of planetary exploration. As the most ambitious and interdisciplinary planetary exploration mission ?own to date, it has extended our knowledge of the Saturn system to levels of detail at least an order of magnitude beyond that gained from all previous missions to Saturn. Nestled in the brilliant light of the new and deep understanding of the Saturn planetary system is the shiny nugget that is the spectacularly successful collaboration of individuals, - ganizations and governments in the achievement of Cassini-Huygens. In some ways the pa- nershipsformedandlessonslearnedmaybethemost enduringlegacyofCassini-Huygens.The broad, international coalition that is Cassini-Huygens is now conducting the Cassini Equinox Mission and planning the Cassini Solstice Mission, and in a major expansion of those fruitful efforts, has extended the collaboration to the study of new ?agship missions to both Jupiter and Saturn. Such ventures have and will continue to enrich us all, and evoke a very optimistic vision of the future of international collaboration in planetary exploration. The two volumes in the series Saturn from Cassini-Huygens and Titan from Cassini- Huygens are the direct products of the efforts of over 200 authors and co-authors. Though each book has a different set of three editors, the group of six editors for the two volumes has worked together through every step of the process to ensure that these two volumes are a set.

Beyond the Sea by David L. Golemon Summary

The Soviet battle cruiser Simbirsk, which launched in June 1940 and was reported sunk in 1944 with the loss of all hands, is still sailing the open sea. January of 2017: American Los Angeles class submarine U.S.S. Houston is tracking a surface target that is not listed as part of the Russian navy’s response to the NATO maneuvers. What they find will set in motion the answers to one of the great mysteries of World War II. With the Russian navy bearing down on the Houston and international tensions running high, the United States Navy declares the Soviet-era derelict legal salvage under international law. With the world’s most powerful navies going toe-to-toe in the North Atlantic, the President of the United States calls upon the one organization that has a chance to figure out why this ship is in this time, in this place—Department 5656, also known as the Event Group. When the Group arrives, they are confronted by three warships of the Russian Navy who have come to claim Russian property. The two groups meet and soon discover that the ancient battle cruiser is not a derelict at all, but fully functional with a mysterious apparatus that sent the original crew to their deaths. In the midst of their warfare in the tossing seas, both navies are sent into a realm of unimaginable terror—an alternate world of water, ice, and death. The Event Group has a new mission when relics of the fabled Philadelphia Experiment surface in Beyond the Sea, the twelfth thrilling hit in New York Times bestselling author David L. Golemon's Event Group series.

The Symbicate by Sean M. T. Shanahan Summary

A Steampunk Fantasy Adventure The Symbicate is the most feared criminal organisation in the land, and now it’s dying. Rival crime rings, dashing heroes, and scorned freedom fighters close in alongside scores of the world’s deadliest bounty hunters, assassins, and hit men—all flocking to one city to compete for the payday of a lifetime. Three young adventurers find themselves embroiled in the deadly plot: a Hired Hero out for revenge, a reluctant assassin just trying to survive, and a do-gooder viscount on a quest to save his uncle. Our three hapless heroes are unaware of how intertwined their destinies will be, and strive to complete their quests, even if it means giving up everything they once believed in. This is a world where the moon is shattered, and the land is inhabited by symbioids—sinewy life-forms that can weave with gadgets or hosts to grant unique abilities. But treachery and mystery abound beneath the surface, and things are never as they seem.

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners and the “delectable, moving” (Entertainment Weekly) My Favorite Half-Night Stand comes a modern love story about what happens when your first love reenters your life when you least expect it… Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak. During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way. Sam was the first, and only, person that Tate—the long-lost daughter of one of the world’s biggest film stars—ever revealed her identity to. So when it became clear her trust was misplaced, her world shattered for good. Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, only thinks about her first love every once in a blue moon. When she steps onto the set of her first big break, he’s the last person she expects to see. Yet here Sam is, the same charming, confident man she knew, but even more alluring than she remembered. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate must ask herself if it’s possible to do the wrong thing for the right reason… and whether “once in a lifetime” can come around twice. With Christina Lauren’s signature “beautifully written and remarkably compelling” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author) prose and perfect for fans of Emily Giffin and Jennifer Weiner, Twice in a Blue Moon is an unforgettable and moving novel of young love and second chances.

Dara Ndu: the Long-Awaited Christ by Emeka Ude J. Summary

When the announcement came that Jesus was the Messiah, the Jewish religious leaders became indignant and consequently rejected him. As far as they were concerned, Elijah had not physically returned. None of the Messianic prophesies had been fulfilled. But they were dead wrong! Jesus truly, was the Messiah. Today, Christians are also expecting Jesus to physically descend from the sky on His Second Coming. Aren’t they repeating the same mistakes of the past? At exactly 9.45 PM on the 9th of April, 1997, DARA NDU announced to the world through the Anambra Broadcasting Service (TV), Nigeria, that He is the prophesied and long-awaited Savior, The Christ. That He took human form in the great Igboland of Nigeria. Has Jesus Christ already returned in an unexpected way? Has God appeared to humanity again, with a new name? This book is an autobiography of DARA NDU, the Long-Awaited Christ, and the Messiah.

In Black and Gold by C. C. Barfoot Summary

In Black and Gold indicates that opposed styles of poetry reveal subterranean correspondences that occasionally meet and run together. Austerity or tomfoolery are two of the many valid responses to the human condition that create the contiguous traditions that cannot help touching and reacting to each other. The poetry discussed in this book deals with the relation of individuals to strange or to familiar landscapes, and what this means to their own sense of displacement or rootedness; with the use of history as an escape from or as a challenge to an apparently failing present; and with the role of nationalism either as a refuge for angry frustration, or as a weapon against the affronting world, or as an ambivalent loyalty that needs to be scoured, or as all three. Here we find poetry as a means of discovering true or false allegiances and valid or invalid public and private identities; poetry as a medium for exploring the uses of the demotic in confronting the breakdowns and injustices of modern democracy; poetry as play in the midst of private and public woe; poetry as a spiritual quest, as a spiritual scourging, as a wrestling with spiritual absences; and poetry as an intermittent and sporadic commemoration of the triumphs and delights of epiphanic encounters with the physical world.

The Two-Faced Queen by Nick Martell Summary

The Hollows is on the brink of civil war as brother and sister vie for the throne in the second novel of the trilogy which Brandon Sanderson called “excellent.” “Simply put, this series is a master class in grand-scale storytelling. The future of epic fantasy is here—and this saga is it.” —Kirkus Review (starred review) Michael Kingman thought he was going to die by the executioner’s axe, forever labeled as a traitor. Still alive, and under the protection of the Orbis Mercenary company, Michael and his family and friends are deeply involved in the seemingly rival conspiracies that are tearing The Hollows apart. With the death of the King, both the Corrupt Prince and his sister Serena are vying for the throne, while the Rebel Emperor is spreading lies amongst the people, and all of them want Michael dead. This is a story of betrayal, murder, and rebellion, and in this direct sequel to the debut novel The Kingdom of Liars, also some hope for justice. For readers who love the intrigue and widening scope of epic fantasy like Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn and Brent Weeks’s The Black Prism, you will find your next must-read fantasy series in The Legacy of the Mercenary King.

Reformed sociopath Donovan Smith has traveled to Vambrace for his own reasons—the new voice in his head claims that there he will learn how he came to be the Antimage, impervious to the deadliest magical attacks. Donovan's secrets may hold the key to defeating the Drynn, but they may upset the delicate alliance of the Blood Sworn in the process. And if Skip and Gavin can't fight together as one, the Drynn will attain total victory over Earth and its magical twin, Theia. See how the forces of the Underworld were unleashed in Drynn and Through the Black Veil. 137,000 words

Beyond The Steps Of Stone by Beth A. Freely Summary

One Army Colonel. One alien leader. One prophecy. The fate of Earth is in their hands. Can they come together in enough time to save it before an old enemy arrives? Army Ranger Colonel Morgan Langtree has awoken from cryogenic stasis to discover that her own world has become alien to her. Earth, now a virtual Garden of Eden, is both beautiful - and dangerous. Now responsible for all of the survivors of the Area 51 base, Langtree sets out to discover what happened to her world... ...and why they slept for 1,500 years longer than intended. Following her late commanding officer's instructions, Langtree and her team set off for the Belize Valley Area and the city of Lamanai. She finds a thriving society based on Central American Indians of millennia before in the remains of the city as well as the Lamanai's gods. Enter Lord Jericho Juriath, the charismatic leader of a race of aliens known as the Allorvians. He has brought the remainder of his people to Earth, a planet his own ancestors helped seed long before the birth of Christ. Earth was to be a safe haven, a thriving planet his people could settle on, disappearing into human society. But, like Colonel Langtree, Juriath has found a world devoid of cities and technology. With too many riddles that need solving - and a prophecy he's not sure he believes in - Juriath is left wondering what happened. Both leaders are forced to make a choice: forge an alliance with one another or go their own way. Can they move past their differences and find love, securing the prophecy that will save both of their people before the Allorvian's enemies find them? Or are they doomed to repeat history and become slaves to a race older than time?

Sky, Wind, and Stars by Dongju Yun Summary

Born and raised in northern Manchuria during the colonial period of Korea, Yun Dong-ju was a poet of the utmost purity, beauty, and sincerity. His posthumously published collection of poems under the title Sky, wind, stars, and poems is one of the all-time favorites of Korean readers. Wishing not to have so much as a speck of shame toward heaven until the day I die, I suffered, even when the wind stirred the leaves. (From Foreword) In simple diction and straightforward expressions, his poems sing of his love for his people, his compassion for the poor and destitute, and his hopes for freedom and independence. These themes still resonate deep within the hearts of the Korean people. His imprisonment and eventual death in 1945 in a Japanese prison lend great poignancy to his work.
