To live in captivity, adopted by the enemies of her people, or to break the law and tradition by running away? That question did not occur to Onheda until after she fled Little Falls on the spur of the moment, against any better judgment. If she was to die in the woods, making her way back to her people, accused, even by them, of breaking the ancient custom, it was still the better choice. She would not live among the enemies. Two moons of that had been more than enough. And yet, embarking upon her dangerous journey, she never expected to cross the path of the man who came to change the world of her people and their enemies alike. Who was he? A mysterious foreigner from across the Great Sparkling Water, a man with unusual ideas or the Messenger of the Great Spirits? And was he about to change her life, too?

When approached with a request to spy on his former people, Ogteah rejected the mere idea of it vehemently, even though it made his loyalty to his current people suspected, to a degree. Still, he wouldn't do it. It was shabby, unfitting, more suited of the old Ogteah from his previous life.Yet, with the circumstances conspiring against him, he had found himself plunging into the vastness of the Great Sparkling Water, nevertheless, alone and armed mainly with their unofficial warriors' leader's instructions and some goods to trade, a meager attempt to camouflage his true purpose. In the meanwhile, the Wyandot from the other side of the Great Lake were working hard, anxious to convince the rest of the local nations into joining their union, perturbed by the Great League's growing power and might, troubled by it. Even the defeated Long Tails did not keep quiet, recovering some of their former fighting spirit, the unlikely survivors among their leaders, people Ogteah certainly didn't care to meet or remember. All this and more awaited Ogteah as he headed across the Great Sparkling Water, against his and everyone else's better judgment.

The worlds are changing. In a world far from our own, where magic and myth are one in the same, a declaration of war is announced. The announcement sets in motion a chain of events that tear into the very fabric of time and space. An ancient legacy has returned to the magical world of Ivane, which had been thought long extinct. Since anyone can remember, there have always been two lines of magic. The first is the essence of the Sorceress. It has been ten years since the last reincarnation of the Sorceress, ten years since very her essence has poisoned an undeserving woman. But suddenly, it has returned. Now, to fight off the evil, three heroes are called upon to help vanquish the essence for good. Legend tells of the one who can manage this seemingly impossible feat. The one who can achieve this is graced with the essences lighter equivalent, the Summoner. Aliz Dominio, a beautiful, gifted young mage from the Alinta Aces; Gogora's only army joins forces with Eddy Seamer. Eddy is a tough but loveable bladesman, and they are joined by one of their mentors, Keryn Blackhart, a patriotic perfectionist who cannot be beaten with a rifle. Together, they embark on a quest that pans the wondrous world they have all grown up in. Only the Summoner can call forth the ancient sceptre of the Gods. This ancient artefact is said to hold the power to vanquish the Summoners evil counterpart and restore peace, if only for a while. But something is different this time around and deep in Aliz's heart a horrible truth is beginning to emerge . . . In old times, a prophecy was made. It spoke of the two ancient lines of magic and how they once belonged to the one who the people of Ivane consider God. It tells of the two lines of magic reuniting in one being, who will ultimately become a God among men. As Aliz and her friends reach their target, the heart wrenching truth is exposed. The true identity of the Sorceress is revealed, and the events that follow are truly catastrophic. When one inherits the essence of the Sorceress, their soul is twisted and corrupted beyond imagining. The darkness within becomes too strong and is unleashed, releasing chaos in its never-ending pursuit for power. It is a wicked burden to bear, and when Aliz inherits this unwanted gift, her soul is thrust into oblivion, and she emerges as the new goddess, forever thirsty for dominance. Now it is up to Aliz's boyfriend, Eddy, and his new friend Keryn to help Aliz. The only option seems bleak, and Eddy drowns in despair. But in a world where anything is possible, can there be a way to pull somebody back from the abyss? Do our heroes try and spit in the face of destiny? Or can destiny be changed? And if they do change destiny, then what?

In The Red Tent Anita Diamant brings the fascinating biblical character of Dinah to vivid life. Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her fate is merely hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the verses of the Book of Genesis that recount the life of Jacob and his infamous dozen sons. Anita Diamant's The Red Tent is an extraordinary and engrossing tale of ancient womanhood and family honour. Told in Dinah's voice, it opens with the story of her mothers – the four wives of Jacob – each of whom embodies unique feminine traits, and concludes with Dinah's own startling and unforgettable story of betrayal, grief and love. Deeply affecting and intimate, The Red Tent combines outstandingly rich storytelling with an original insight into women's society in a fascinating period of early history and such is its warmth and candour, it is guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of women across the world. 'I genuinely fell into this rich and colourful world and Dinah and Leah have stayed with me as ancestors and sisters brought to life by Anita Diamant's imaginative novel' - Maureen Lipman. Adapted as a TV mini series starring Rebecca Ferguson and Minnie Driver.

To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history....Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of-a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history. The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known-and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and wipe it out. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the legend of Dracula. Generations of historians have risked their reputations, their sanity, and even their lives to learn the truth about Vlad the Impaler and Dracula. Now one young woman must decide whether to take up this quest herself-to follow her father in a hunt that nearly brought him to ruin years ago, when he was a vibrant young scholar and her mother was still alive. What does the legend of Vlad the Impaler have to do with the modern world? Is it possible that the Dracula of myth truly existed-and that he has lived on, century after century, pursuing his own unknowable ends? The answers to these questions cross time and borders, as first the father and then the daughter search for clues, from dusty Ivy League libraries to Istanbul, Budapest, and the depths of Eastern Europe. In city after city, in monasteries and archives, in letters and in secret conversations, the horrible truth emerges about Vlad the Impaler's dark reign-and about a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive down through the ages.Parsing obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions-and evading the unknown adversaries who will go to any lengths to conceal and protect Vlad's ancient powers-one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil. Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions, a relentless tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present, with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful-and utterly unforgettable.

The Blackwall frigates form a connecting link between the lordly East Indiaman of the Honourable John Company and the magnificent P and O liners of the present day. They were first-class ships. Well-run, happy ships, and the sailor who started his sea life as a midshipman aboard a Blackwaller looked back ever afterwards to his cadet days as the happiest period of his career. If discipline was strict, it was also just. The training was superb, as witness the number of Blackwall midshipmen who reached the head of their profession and distinguished themselves later in other walks of life. Fifty years ago, the lithographs of the celebrated Blackwall liners to India and Australia could be bought at any seaport for a few shillings. Nowadays, those old ship portraits are cagerly snapped up by a growing group of collectors. We therefore hope that the illustrations in this book will be appreciated.
