A romantic and exhilarating historical adventure about a girl who must unlock the secrets within Paradise Lost to save her father—perfect for fans of Revolution and Code Name Verity—from acclaimed author Anne Blankman, whose debut novel, Prisoner of Night and Fog, was a Sydney Taylor Notable Book for Teens in 2015 Six years have passed since England’s King Charles II returned from exile to reclaim the throne, ushering in a new era of stability for his subjects. Except for Elizabeth Milton. The daughter of notorious poet John Milton, Elizabeth has never known her place in this shifting world—except by her father’s side. By day she helps transcribe his latest masterpiece, the epic poem Paradise Lost, and by night she learns languages and sword fighting. Although she does not dare object, she suspects that he’s training her for a mission whose purpose she cannot fathom. Until one night the king’s men arrive at her family’s country home to arrest her father. Determined to save him, Elizabeth follows his one cryptic clue and journeys to Oxford, accompanied by her father’s mysterious young houseguest, Antonio Viviani, a darkly handsome Italian scientist who surprises her at every turn. Funny, brilliant, and passionate, Antonio seems just as determined to protect her father as she is—but can she trust him with her heart? When the two discover that Milton has planted an explosive secret in the half-finished Paradise Lost—a secret the king and his aristocratic supporters are desperate to conceal—Elizabeth is faced with a devastating choice: cling to the shelter of her old life, or risk cracking the code, unleashing a secret that could save her father . . . and tear apart the very fabric of society.

Spiritual Taxonomies and Ritual Authority Book Excerpt:

The people of the late ancient Mediterranean world thought about and encountered gods, angels, demons, heroes, and other spirits on a regular basis. These figures were diverse, ambiguous, and unclassified and were not ascribed any clear or stable moral valence. Whether or not they were helpful or harmful under specific circumstances determined if and what virtues were attributed to them. That all changed in the third century C.E., when a handful of Platonist philosophers—Plotinus, Origen, Porphyry, and Iamblichus—began to produce competing systematic discourses that ordered the realm of spirits in moral and ontological terms. In Spiritual Taxonomies and Ritual Authority, Heidi Marx-Wolf recounts how these Platonist philosophers organized the spirit world into hierarchies, or "spiritual taxonomies," positioning themselves as the high priests of the highest gods in the process. By establishing themselves as experts on sacred, ritual, and doctrinal matters, they were able to fortify their authority, prestige, and reputation. The Platonists were not alone in this enterprise, and it brought them into competition with rivals to their new authority: priests of traditional polytheistic religions and gnostics. Members of these rival groups were also involved in identifying and ordering the realm of spirits and in providing the ritual means for dealing with that realm. Using her lens of spiritual taxonomy to look at these various groups in tandem, Marx-Wolf demonstrates that Platonist philosophers, Christian and non-Christian priests, and gnostics were more interconnected socially, educationally, and intellectually than previously recognized.

Who s to Blame Book Excerpt:

“It maketh me turnest over in my grave.” —William Shakespeare “Who’s To Blame not only takes us on a romp through Shakespeare’s plays, but down hilarious back alleys and side doors we haven’t visited before. Williams’s intuitive comic timing tells us that he understands all the literary clichés—and how to turn them cheerfully upside down.” —Caroline Ferdinandsen, Author of The Forecast SherChristispeare is the finest sleuth in sixteenth-century England, but when he’s ordered to investigate the suspicious deaths of Prince Hamlet and his family in Denmark and then the Montagues and Capulets of Fair Verona, he uncovers an intriguing mystery of literary revisionist proportions. The wily and witty detective and his bungling sidekick Pancho embark on two rollicking adventures where there is no shortage of wine, women, and words. Using old school cunning and state-of-the-art forensics, the pair stops at nothing to solve two of literature’s most famous tragedies and bring the guilty parties to justice. Author Jeffery Williams creates a wacky and winsome spoof/sequel/pastiche/whodunit that leaves no Shakespearean line or scene unparodied. Take a fresh angle on two of Shakespeare’s greatest works, Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, and enter the world of SherChristispeare and Pancho as they find out Who’s to Blame.

I finally reduced my choice to two titles, the second one being used as the sub-title: "THE VATICAN CIPHERS". If I had not been so sensative to the economic and social consequences of the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations, this would have been the actual title, because more than anything else this is about the early invention of our languages. Some of the most important discoveries include the following: Religious names and words such as Christ, Thomas, crucifixion and others were used as roots to invent many of our modern day words, but they were originally written phonetically, and then hidden away when dictionaries standardized our spelling of words. A technique was discovered showing how rootwords and rootnames were used to create other words and ideas and then those ideas and words were used to create detail in short stories especially myths and religious fables of the New Testament. Since this technique was not known to exist, if fell on me to invent a name for it, I named it the ROOTWORD TECHNIQUE. Finally, I discovered that the alphabet was pictorial, or hieroglyphic. The wordsmiths who created our vocabulary used the letters as pictures as well as symbols for sounds.

Smoking Privileges Book Excerpt:

Current public health literature suggests that the mentally ill may represent as much as half of the smokers in America. In Smoking Privileges, Laura D. Hirshbein highlights the complex problem of mentally ill smokers, placing it in the context of changes in psychiatry, in the tobacco and pharmaceutical industries, and in the experience of mental illness over the last century.Hirshbein, a medical historian and clinical psychiatrist, first shows how cigarettes functioned in the old system of psychiatric care, revealing that mental health providers long ago noted the important role of cigarettes within treatment settings and the strong attachment of many mentally ill individuals to their cigarettes. Hirshbein also relates how, as the sale of cigarettes dwindled, the tobacco industry quietly researched alternative markets, including those who smoked for psychological reasons, ultimately discovering connections between mental states and smoking, and the addictive properties of nicotine. However, Smoking Privileges warns that to see smoking among the mentally ill only in terms of addiction misses how this behavior fits into the broader context of their lives. Cigarettes not only helped structure their relationships with other people, but also have been important objects of attachment. Indeed, even after psychiatric hospitals belatedly instituted smoking bans in the late twentieth century, smoking remained an integral part of life for many seriously ill patients, with implications not only for public health but for the ongoing treatment of psychiatric disorders. Making matters worse, well-meaning tobacco-control policies have had the unintended consequence of further stigmatizing the mentally ill.A groundbreaking look at a little-known public health problem, Smoking Privileges illuminates the intersection of smoking and mental illness, and offers a new perspective on public policy regarding cigarettes.

New Realities of the Twenty first Century Part 1 Book Excerpt:

New Realities of the Twenty-first Century, Part 1 by Prophet Wildman The psychic/parapsychic experience in the supernatural is one that is not readily understood or accepted by the masses. After enjoying the gift of psychic future predictive awareness for more than fifty years, Prophet Wildman had a deep understanding of the psychic and parapsychic experience. However, it wasn’t until 2008 when he began receiving Holy subject (Tribulation) awareness as a precognitive psychic medium that he really began to delve deeper into this relatively unknown subject and explore psychic and parapsychic experiences as they related to the supernatural and Christianity. Prophet Wildman wows his readers with first-hand experiences, both from the perspective of being Christian and of being a psychic medium, while also providing a comprehensive dissection and decoding of the Tribulation event as it relates to the prophecy. Wildman’s deeply personal experiences, along with factual statements and others’ first-hand experiences, provide the reader with a comprehensive read that will strengthen one’s faith in Christ and Christianity, while opening up rarely explored doors to the supernatural, psychic and parapsychic worlds. Explore the unknown with Prophet Wildman as he weaves his unwavering Christian beliefs with everything from extraterrestrials and ultraterrestrials to vampires, U.F.Os, and government cover-ups. An open mind and a strong religious conviction are all that’s needed to begin searching and discovering some of the biggest mysteries of our time.

Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F Kennedy Book Excerpt:

Thousands of books and articles have been written about the murder of JFK, many of which are large in volume and short on facts. Quite often, these works try to reinvent the wheel, attempting to cover every single area of the assassination, as well as many tangential and unessential points, as well. The reader is often left exhausted and confused. The sheer volume of pages, conflicting facts, and theories leaves one unsatisfied and, quite frankly, not sure exactly what did happen on 11/22/63. This book seeks to separate the wheat from the chaff. It is 55-plus years later: it is time for real, honest answers in an easy-to-read and understand format. Proof of a conspiracy; no theories; to-the-point; a perspective on the assassination for the millennial age and beyond. Based on years—decades—of primary source research and having read countless books on the subject.

The disease has teeth…but the cure could be deadly. As Investigator for the Lycanthrope Council, Gabriel McCord went above and beyond his official title to keep werewolf kind out of the public eye. Now he has a new challenge as the liaison to the Institute for Lycanthrope Reversal, advocating for humans turned werewolf against their will. The Institute’s controversial “treatment” is nonetheless generally accepted – until one of the project’s scientists is found murdered at his desk. The suspect list is long: purists who believe lycanthropism is a non-returnable gift; wolf-borns who want the cure for their own; and the ethereal Selene Rial, an Institute psychologist who’s lost her most precious possession to a secret society dedicated to the annihilation of werewolves. If Gabriel fails to solve this case, the fragile peace between wizards and lycanthropes could shatter, and his friends’ lives could be ruined. But even if he succeeds, he has to face the consequences of his heart being pulled in a dangerous direction – a woman whose secrets could destroy them both.

Fire and Fury Book Excerpt:

#1 New York Times Bestseller With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief. This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including: -- What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him -- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama -- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired -- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room -- Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing -- What the secret to communicating with Trump is -- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers Never before in history has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion. “Essential reading.”—Michael D’Antonio, author of Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, CNN.com “Not since Harry Potter has a new book caught fire in this way...[Fire and Fury] is indeed a significant achievement, which deserves much of the attention it has received.”—The Economist
