Terradom Book Excerpt:

All that was once beautiful is now blackened by fire. Everyone lost everything. Those that died were the lucky ones. The survivors had starvation and oppression to look forward to. Wicked men rose up from the ashes to take advantage of the lost—raping, pillaging, and murdering any poor soul that crossed their path. It seemed that all hope was lost along with everything else, but the people were left with a prophecy. A boy and a girl will be born with gifts that will help them grow into strong leaders. They will become protectors who will crush all who threaten the people. After the firestorm, Jonahs’s family searched for their friends—four families that had grown close to them when Jonahs was young. The five families included the family of Ariannis, Jonahs’s soul mate. Jonahs led the families to a safe, hidden place. It is believed that Jonahs and Ariannis are the children from the prophecy.

25 Doctrines of Law You Should Know Book Excerpt:

"I'll sue you!" In this litigious society, everyone needs to know a few basics to avoid being snowed, cowed and generally abused. Even those who can afford to hire lawyers need to know what they are up to. When a conflict arises, what are the main doctrines of law that give one side an advantage? What do they mean, and how do they apply? When you can see through the jargon, the intimidation factor loses its power and you can concentrate on real issues - and use these tools to take care of yourself. Some of America's doctrines go back to the 17th-century English Bench and have had a lasting impact on our legal system. Other doctrines are of more recent vintage but have had an equally profound influence. The author has researched 1000 legal cases and identified 326 different doctrines of law; of those, he has selected 25 doctrines that average Americans are most likely to encounter in their everyday activities. In these pages he reviews actual cases to show how the doctrines apply in real-life scenarios and relates what happened in court. These non-jargon explanations provide handy background reading for fans of court-room dramas and, since any one of us may end up in court these days, important general education for every adult in the United States. 1.

The Spinners Book Excerpt:

THE FUNERAL The people were coming to church and one had thought it Sunday, but for two circumstances. The ring of bells at St. Mary's did not peal, and the women were dressed in black as the men. Through the winding lanes of Bridetown a throng converged, drawn to the grey tower by a tolling bell; and while the sun shone and a riot of many flowers made hedgerows and cottage gardens gay; while the spirit of the hour was inspired by June and a sun at the zenith unclouded, the folk of the hamlet drew their faces to sadness and mothers chid the children, who could not pretend, but echoed the noontide hour in their hearts. All were not attired for a funeral. A small crowd of women, with one or two men among them, stood together where a sycamore threw a patch of shade on a triangular space of grass near the church. There were fifty of these people—ancient women, others in their prime, and many young maidens. Some communion linked them and the few men who stood with them. All wore a black band upon their left arms. Drab or grey was their attire, but sun-bonnets nodded bright as butterflies among them, and even their dull raiment was more cheerful than the gathering company in black who now began to mass their numbers and crane their heads along the highway.

Historical Records of the Five Dynasties Book Excerpt:

Only fragments of historical text from China's middle period have been translated into English, until now. Here at last is the first major Chinese historical work from the Song dynasty. Written by Ouyang Xiu, an intellectual giant of the eleventh century, this is a history of the preceding century (907–979), a period known as the Five Dynasties. The historical and literary significance of Ouyang's achievement cannot be underestimated. In rewriting the existing official history of the Five Dynasties, Ouyang—whose own time was characterized by extraordinary intellectual and political innovation—made several notable decisions. He rewrote the history in the "ancient" style preferred by forward-thinking literati; he even rewrote the original documents quoted within biographies. He also relied on his own moral categories, reevaluating the worth of the historical figures in light of his own convictions that individuals should take personal responsibility for the fate of society. Ouyang's history would eventually become the official version—the last state-sanctioned dynastic history of imperial China to be written by an individual in a private capacity. In addition to its provocative insights and lucid presentation, Historical Records of the Five Dynasties is an eloquent statement on the art of historical writing in the eleventh century. A preeminent scholar of Chinese history, Richard L. Davis has provided a thorough introduction and rendered nearly two-thirds of the Chinese original into English, including complete sections critical to understanding the politics and personalities of the time. Biographical clusters based on Ouyang's moral categories also appear in full, helping readers to appreciate the Confucian agenda that informs the work.

"In the late summer of 1352, Sir Malcolm Drummond, knight of Scotland, stands in place of his lord against charges of murder and theft of treasure. Though innocent, to save his lord and friends, he surrenders to imprisonment, torture, and promised execution to an enemy who has long had a taste for his blood. Only one person might help; a peculiar lady with arcane knowledge. Yet, as the favorite ofhis captor, her meddling could greatly worsen the knight's treatment. More murders follow; and Drummond must unmask treason, quell rebellion, recover treasure, and save the woman he loves."--Back cover.
