Soon, Dakota finds herself caught in a magical battle between ageless wizards desperate to seize the rapidly dwindling supply of liquid fire and fireweaver terrorists who'll stop at nothing to keep every last drop of it for themselves. Even if that means killing Dakota. The race is on to find the truth about liquid fire, the secret behind Dakota's magic tattoos, and the message hidden in the fireweaver's secret codes--before the world goes up in flames. Filled with spectacular magic, pyrotechnic action, and kinky romance, LIQUID FIRE is the action-packed third installment in the Dakota Frost, Skindancer series.

The Trees by Ali Shaw Book Resume:

The Trees. They arrived in the night: wrenching through the ground, thundering up into the air, and turning Adrien's suburban street into a shadowy forest. Shocked by the sight but determined to get some answers, he ventures out, passing destroyed buildings, felled power lines, and broken bodies still wrapped in tattered bed linens hanging from branches. It is soon apparent that no help is coming and that these trees, which seem the work of centuries rather than hours, span far beyond the town. As far, perhaps, as the coast, where across the sea in Ireland, Adrien's wife is away on a business trip and there is no way of knowing whether she is alive or dead. When Adrien meets Hannah, a woman who, unlike him, believes that the coming of the trees may signal renewal rather than destruction and Seb, her technology-obsessed son, they persuade him to join them. Together, they pack up what remains of the lives they once had and set out on a quest to find Hannah's forester brother and Adrien's wife--and to discover just how deep the forest goes. Their journey through the trees will take them into unimaginable territory: to a place of terrible beauty and violence, of deadly enemies and unexpected allies, to the dark heart of nature and the darkness--and also the power--inside themselves.

Our world is infested with countless Pixalians, but one team ignites hope more than any other squadron. After the ‘Battle of Cyclohoma’, a new threat is sentenced to cripple humanity. And now, Canavin and the Master Defenders are determined to face their greatest conflict yet. It’s known as Sychophemia: a vile nation of predators that are known to be the ancestors of a dreaded legion. With the thought of a caustic race that is potentially stronger than Xaliemer, a new member of the ‘Alien Investigative Agency’ wishes to alter the world with this infestation. He is corrupted, undoubtedly conceited, and is filled with rage from the loss of his family. And having a group of skilled convicts on his side doesn’t help the world at all. Only one alliance could rise to the occasion and stand a chance against the last plague. Canavin is motivated to dig deeper into the secret of Sychophemia as more loved ones are threatened. As they stand for a code of honour, the Master Defenders must unite together as protectors of humans and act as the only cure to corruption.

In the somnolent Flemish town of Quiquendone disagreements are unheard of, courtships might last a decade and not a ripple of activity can be seen at all. But when the mysterious Dr Ox is tasked with providing lighting for the town, strange things begin to happen: animals become aggressive, fruits grow huge in size, plants climb more vigorously and tempers flare up, leading the once phlegmatic townsfolk to bitter confrontations and pushing them to the brink of all-out violence.Verne, the acclaimed author of immortal tales of adventure and early science fiction, can be seen here in a different light, regaling readers of all ages with a light-hearted satire that, in its warnings about the dangers of scientific experimentation, has a clear and troubling resonance with our times.

María by Jorge Issacs Book Resume:

María (1867) is a novel by Jorge Isaacs. Partly inspired by his own life, María is a moving story of romance, hope, and tragedy by a leading author of the Spanish Romantic movement. The novel was Isaacs’ debut work of fiction and seemed to promise him a lengthy career in Colombian literature. As he dedicated himself to politics, however, he largely abandoned his youthful commitment to writing in favor of a more conventional career. Raised in the idyllic countryside of Valle del Cauca, María and Efraín develop a love for one another that refuses to die. Forced apart by familial expectations, Efraín leaves his lover to study in Bogotá, and remains in the Colombian capital for six years. Desperate to return, he leaves the city and reunites with María, who waited patiently the whole time he was away. As the two begin preparing for a life together in their beautiful homeland, Efraín learns that his family has other plans for him. In a few months’ time, he is expected to travel to London and enroll in medical school, guaranteeing years away from his home and his young, faithful love. As the day of his departure approaches, Efraín and María attempt to recapture the simplistic joy of their youth but find themselves drifting further into doubt than ever before. María is a masterpiece of Romantic literature from a talented writer who blossomed early and never managed to live up to his astounding promise. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jorge Isaacs’ María is a classic of Colombian literature reimagined for modern readers.

The poems attempt to consider some of the differences between these two selves, always in conflict, and the advantages of choosing the one over the other.

The Imagination Thief by Rohan Quine Book Resume:

The Imagination Thief by Rohan Quine is about a web of secrets, triggered by the stealing and copying of people’s imaginations and memories. It’s about the magic that can be conjured up by images of people, in imagination or on film; the split between beauty and happiness in the world; and the allure of various kinds of power. A Distinguished Favorite in the NYC Big Book Award 2021, it celebrates some of the most extreme possibilities of human imagination, personality and language, exploring the darkest and brightest flavours of beauty living in our minds. Alone in his skyscraper office one night, Jaymi undergoes a transformation that will change his life: he acquires the power to see into others’ minds, and then to control and project their thoughts. Realising the potential of this gift, he hypnotises a media mogul into agreeing to broadcast an electrifying extravaganza of sound and vision emanating from Jaymi, the like of which has never been witnessed before, that will captivate millions. However, one of the mogul’s underlings has more subversive plans for milking Jaymi’s talent, involving the theft of others’ imaginations and intimate memories for commercial gain. The broadcasting of his visions plunges Jaymi and his best friend Alaia on a journey into the underbelly of Asbury Park – a seaside town once full of life but now half-forgotten. The town’s entire oceanfront is now almost a ghost town: ruled by gangsters and drug dealers, headed by Lucan, it is populated by lost souls and the beautiful who have fallen on hard times. Blackmailed into thieving the most private and primal memories and experiences from these people’s imaginations, Jaymi discovers a web of secrets and provocations simmering beneath the surface of the town, about to explode. When a waxwork of Lucan’s decapitated head is anonymously planted in his own bar, fear bubbles up, as everyone becomes a suspect in this unforgivable challenge to Lucan’s dominance. Then when another provocative waxwork appears – a naked full-body modelling of Lucan’s beautiful but tortured lover, Angel – Jaymi knows he must use his own gift to discover the perpetrator before Lucan does. Delving into and celebrating the most beautiful and extreme possibilities of human imagination, personality and love, The Imagination Thief is literary fiction, with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror. It explores the universal human predicaments of power, beauty, happiness, hopelessness, good and evil.

Convictions, Dialect and Separation: Communications of the Soul is about a boy becoming a man in a world where he must conquer an internal darkness. He ventures into death, ghost and the afterlife forming the foundation of an alternate spiritual world from the other side. Caught in between two worlds, one white like a canvas, the other black like receptive spirituality, the boy encounters the truths of his past, present, and future. His soul learns how to sense these worlds for the first time by crossing the unconscious darkness and finding the light. When one boys purpose was empty, a hollow shell incased his thoughts, until he found the self incarnate. Thus being an inhabitant of a soul, the body strives to express its essence between the two opposing worlds realization and hope. The higher truth struggles to set a tarnished soul free. Then, speech in the book is intended to generate power for the other people in the world to wield their spiritual sword of presence and strength. An underlying nature comes from his internal communication with the divine source of clear consciousness and the universal silence. Consciousness and self-actualization had no barriers and empowered levels of thought, only to find purity and forgiveness. The speculation of the worlds religious freedoms and the happenings of real time have the chance to change everything. When heart is relinquished of all of its fears, the soul will finally reside in a place of comfort inside of a now free body.

The Age of Em by Robin Hanson Book Resume:

Robots may one day rule the world, but what is a robot-ruled Earth like? Many think the first truly smart robots will be brain emulations or ems. Scan a human brain, then run a model with the same connections on a fast computer, and you have a robot brain, but recognizably human. Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times: an army of workers is at your disposal. When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs. In this new economic era, the world economy may double in size every few weeks. Some say we can't know the future, especially following such a disruptive new technology, but Professor Robin Hanson sets out to prove them wrong. Applying decades of expertise in physics, computer science, and economics, he uses standard theories to paint a detailed picture of a world dominated by ems. While human lives don't change greatly in the em era, em lives are as different from ours as our lives are from those of our farmer and forager ancestors. Ems make us question common assumptions of moral progress, because they reject many of the values we hold dear. Read about em mind speeds, body sizes, job training and career paths, energy use and cooling infrastructure, virtual reality, aging and retirement, death and immortality, security, wealth inequality, religion, teleportation, identity, cities, politics, law, war, status, friendship and love. This book shows you just how strange your descendants may be, though ems are no stranger than we would appear to our ancestors. To most ems, it seems good to be an em.

Far from any house or hut, in the depth of dreary moor-land, a road, unfenced and almost unformed, descends to a rapid river. The crossing is called the "Seven Corpse Ford," because a large party of farmers, riding homeward from Middleton, banded together and perhaps well primed through fear of a famous highwayman, came down to this place on a foggy evening, after heavy rain-fall. One of the company set before them what the power of the water was, but they laughed at him and spurred into it, and one alone spurred out of it. Whether taken with fright, or with too much courage, they laid hold of one another, and seven out of eight of them, all large farmers, and thoroughly understanding land, came never upon it alive again; and their bodies, being found upon the ridge that cast them up, gave a dismal name to a place that never was merry in the best of weather. However, worse things than this had happened; and the country is not chary of its living, though apt to be scared of its dead; and so the ford came into use again, with a little attempt at improvement. For those farmers being beyond recall, and their families hard to provide for, Richard Yordas, of Scargate Hall, the chief owner of the neighborhood, set a long heavy stone up on either brink, and stretched a strong chain between them, not only to mark out the course of the shallow, whose shelf is askew to the channel, but also that any one being washed away might fetch up, and feel how to save himself. For the Tees is a violent water sometimes, and the safest way to cross it is to go on till you come to a good stone bridge. Now forty years after that sad destruction of brave but not well-guided men, and thirty years after the chain was fixed, that their sons might not go after them, another thing happened at "Seven Corpse Ford," worse than the drowning of the farmers. Or, at any rate, it made more stir (which is of wider spread than sorrow), because of the eminence of the man, and the length and width of his property. Neither could any one at first believe in so quiet an end to so turbulent a course. Nevertheless it came to pass, as lightly as if he were a reed or a bubble of the river that belonged to him. It was upon a gentle evening, a few days after Michaelmas of 1777. No flood was in the river then, and no fog on the moor-land, only the usual course of time, keeping the silent company of stars. The young moon was down, and the hover of the sky (in doubt of various lights) was gone, and the equal spread of obscurity soothed the eyes of any reasonable man. But the man who rode down to the river that night had little love of reason. Headstrong chief of a headlong race, no will must depart a hair's-breadth from his; and fifty years of arrogant port had stiffened a neck too stiff at birth. Even now in the dim light his large square form stood out against the sky like a cromlech, and his heavy arms swung like gnarled boughs of oak, for a storm of wrath was moving him. In his youth he had rebelled against his father; and now his own son was a rebel to him. "Good, my boy, good!" he said, within his grizzled beard, while his eyes shone with fire, like the flints beneath his horse; "you have had your own way, have you, then? But never shall you step upon an acre of your own, and your timber shall be the gallows. Done, my boy, once and forever."

Bonded by Chris Dahi Book Resume:

Adaeze, a princess was born in a typical African traditional setting. She was not actually born as she was cut out from her dead mother who was gored by a wounded antelope. Adaeze had the mark of the gods on her body. Kris was brought out quickly from his dead mother who died a highly traumatized woman. He has the mark of the gods on him. Therefore that these two must paths cross in the weaving loom of fate is inevitable, for it is obvious that they are Bonded as twins in the spirit realm. The purpose for their births and lives in a world where terrible spiritual entities demand the blood and death of twins for sacrifices, where the blood lust has been unleashed in a terrible world war that has been fought and a second is looming. Yet affairs of the heart cannot be overridden by these negative forces. Bonded is a wild romance between traditional Africa with her deep culture and deeper belief system and post First and pre Second World War Europe with her modern ways, religious and colonial escapades. It is also an indepth expose' into some hitherto unknown African traditional society and ways.

The Karma of Self by Vasile Munteanu Book Resume:

The book is a meditation on the ideas of the Ego, the Soul and the Higher Self and the differences between them. The narrator is a rather amorphous figure that can actually be anyone who has thought about these issues. There are no characters per sé, but as the novel evolves, night, darkness, the dreaming process, the mind, and thought become the main characters. The story is part of a very long, complex dream that the narrator seems to be going through as he makes his way to the realization that the Higher Self is the source of everything.

Choral Masterworks by Michael Steinberg Book Resume:

Michael Steinberg's highly successful listener's guides--The Symphony and The Concerto--have been universally praised for their blend of captivating biography, crystal clear musical analysis, and delightful humor. Now Steinberg follows these two greatly admired volumes with Choral Masterworks, the only such guide available to this most popular of musical forms. Here are more than fifty illuminating essays on the classic choral masterworks, ranging from Handel's Messiah, Bach's Mass in B Minor, and Beethoven's Missa solemnis, to works by Haydn, Brahms, Mendelssohn, and many others. Steinberg spans the entire history of classical music, from such giants of the Romantic era as Verdi and Berlioz, to leading modern composers such as Elgar, Rachmaninoff, Vaughan Williams, and Stravinsky, to contemporary masters such as John Adams and Charles Wuorinen. For each piece, Steinberg includes a fascinating biographical account of the work's genesis, often spiced with wonderful asides. The author includes an astute musical analysis of each piece, one that casual music lovers can easily appreciate and that more serious fans will find invaluable. The book also provides basic information such as the various movements of the work, the organization of the chorus and orchestra, and brief historical notes on early performances. More than twenty million Americans perform regularly in choirs or choruses. Choral Masterworks will appeal not only to concert goers and CD collectors, but also to this vast multitude of choral performers, an especially engaged and active community. "What sets Steinberg's writing apart is its appealing mixture of impregnable authority (he knows this music) and purely personal asides (by the end of the book, we know this man). Choral Masterworks can be read by anybody, from a professional musician to any young listener newly braced by the stoic pessimism of the Brahms 'German Requiem.'" --Washington Post Book World
