The Immortals

“The Immortals are rising,” Sasha added. “Guys, stop!” I exclaimed. “You sound like the trailer to a depressing movie.” I wished this all could be a depressing movie instead of our lives. “What do you mean about the Immortals rising?

Rick Ferno is descended from King Arthur, he's the son of the sky Dragon, and prophesized future King of the planet. On top of all that, he's destined to fight a powerful Dragon known as Pavane, for the fate of the universe. Oh, and he's fourteen. The battle of the Dragons has exploded over the last several months, with Pavane's army growing in numbers, and surrounding every stronghold. Rick and his friends must soon leave school to embark on another long and perilous journey, to the most unreachable places on earth. The four seem focused and determined, but Rick has been bitten by the love bug, and Dawn struggles with the thought of joining her father. Young Rick soon discovers that there is a riddle-like prophecy concerning him, but what he finds doesn't put his mind to ease. Then, when things start to look up, Pavane appears at the school with a dire warning for his enemies. The Immortals are coming Brilliantly narrated, fast-paced, and hilariously documented, the story of Rick Ferno lives on in Kroupa's second book; The Immortals. With a brand-new plethora of characters and terrifying monsters, the world of these extraordinary teens grows even more unpredictable. Succeeding The Breath Of A Dragon, this story grabs the imagination and pulls it to the electrifying finish.

The four books making up The Immortals are the 5th - 8th (of 15) novels set in Tortall, and introduce the' Wildmage', Veralidaine Sarrasri, who appears in most later novels in the Tortall series. The Notes in this book cover Tamora Pierce's life and work; the world of Tortall (including the geography, cast, and neighbouring cultures); the strange menagerie of immortal creatures who may be friend or foe; and the pantheon of interfering multicultural god/desse/s. The well-illustrated Annotations pay special attention to the many animals who feature, cultural and historical references, and the major thematic issues that develop throughout the quartet. Wild Magic, Wolf-Speaker, The Emperor Mage, and The Realms of the Gods are all covered on a chapter-by-chapter basis, and there is a link to the deleted chapter of The Emperor Mage (in which Daine heals a poisoned camel). The Essay compares The Immortals with its successor quartet, Protector of the Small, for both the brave teenage heroines have a particular and very educational relationship with Pierce's greatest fantasy-beasts, the amazing (and amazingly smelly) Stormwings. The Bibliography has a section detailing works about' Tamora Pierce and Children's Writing'.

The chains of Love are stronger than the bonds of Revenge Long after the gladiators fought in the Coliseum, ancient evils wander the streets of Rome. Only a few heroes have the power to stop them. Among them, a group of friends whose fate and the gods’ whims have united in immortality. Follow Atreides, Max, and Fabian as they battle their inner demons and try to save the world and their loved ones at the same time. Bound By Water She can steal anything. Even his heart… Atreides I’m the last merman shifter alive. I’m also a famous painter, richer than Croesus, and not in a hurry to find a suitable mate. Someday, I’ll secure my heritage. For now, my life is perfect as it is. And did I mention that in my spare time I help the police recover stolen art? Bringing to justice those thieves gives me a special pleasure, and I look forward to my next mission. Ariel I’m an art thief and exceedingly good at what I do but promised never to steal again. And if my father hadn’t accumulated huge debts with the wrong crowd, I would’ve kept my word. So here I am at night, outside the medieval castle I intend to rob when this absolute hunk of a man emerges from the sea. And what do you know, he walks up to me and kisses me. It’s not a regular kiss either, but the stuff of legend. I kid you not. I’m so shaken, I almost forget about the heist. Too bad there’s a werewolf biker gang after me, and I have no time for romance… The Alpha's Gift The playboy dragon shifter, the orphan baby, and the nanny who will change their lives Max As a dragon-shifter and one of the youngest billionaires in Seattle, I work hard during the day and party equally hard at night. I’m fastidious about my habits and don’t like setbacks of any kind. Especially when they come in the form of a baby girl abandoned at my doorstep. The sooner I take care of this problem, the better it is, so I can go back to the club. There’re two gorgeous blondes waiting for me to rock their night… Vivienne My brother wakes me at three in the morning because his boss, Mr. Rich & Hateful, has an emergency. He makes it sound like a life or death situation, so of course, I run to the penthouse. And what do I find there, besides my brother and the billionaire jerk? The most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever seen. She’s so small and just perfect, and I fall in love with her at first sight. Too bad she’s probably related to Mr. Prize—the man is too handsome for his own good, and I can’t stand the sight of him. I’ll endure his presence, though, for the baby’s sake. Hopefully, we don’t end up killing each other… Renegade Vampire Princesses & Monsters: Not your mother’s fairy tale Stella Once upon a time, I was a princess, a real one, but the fairy tale is over. After my parents died, my aunt Marella raised me as her own, but now she’s gone too. Tomorrow, I'll be kicked out of my ancestral home with nowhere to live. I’m desperate. Desperate enough to consider the unthinkable—becoming a companion and selling myself to a rich and powerful man. The escort agency caters to a special clientele, though—one I never even imagined existed. Will I be able to go through with it? Fabian I’ve been protecting Stella for a long time, but she doesn’t know it. To her, I’m Fabian Laurentis, world-famous actor and playboy. But I’m so much more than that. I’m an ancient and powerful vampire, and the only reason she’s still alive. She’s about to make the worst mistake of her life, and I refuse to let her. She’s mine. She won’t belong to anyone else, but me.

This book argues that Aristotle used "the most traditional Greek ideas about the gods" to develop and defend his physical, metaphysical, and ethical teachings. This revolutionary thesis stands in stark contrast to studies of Aristotle's texts that normally portray him as a "natural theologian" using rational tools to elaborate his own conception of God or the gods. Bodeus argues that Aristotle is more closely aligned with popular Greek religion than is usually thought, and attention to the ethical and political writings reveals more about Aristotle's resources for conceiving the gods than study of his theoretical works.

It is Samhain—the Blood Harvest. Nonbelievers call it Hallowe'en. The night when eight Nashville teenagers are found dead, with occult symbols carved into their naked bodies. It's a ritual the killers believe was blessed by Death himself. When children are victimized, emotions always run high, and this case has the public both outraged and terrified: a dangerous combination. Recently reinstated homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson knows she has to act quickly, but tread carefully. Exploring the baffling culture of mysticism and witchcraft, Taylor is immersed in a darkness that threatens to unbalance the order of her world, and learns how unchecked wrath can push a killer to his limits.
