New York Times bestselling author Anne Stuart, writing as Kristina Douglas, offers the third novel in the Fallen series.

A born warrior, archangel Michael is dedicated to the Fallen’s survival. But only one woman understands the seductive hunger that he cannot forsake.

There comes a time in every angels life . . .

Every little girl imagines, now and then, that she’s a princess held captive in a tower. But Victoria Bellona is almost twenty-five. And that whole fairy-tale scenario? That’s her real life. The drop-dead gorgeous man who rescues her is no Prince Charming. He’s the gruff archangel Michael, and he insists that Tory is the Fallen’s only hope for ending Uriel’s vicious rule. She insists he’s crazy.

. . . to show his brethren what hes made of.

According to the prophecy, Michael must marry this frustrating, fascinating creature, bed her, and drink her blood. But their fate is a double-edged sword. If they give in to their urgently growing desires, Tory will die in battle. If they refuse, she will die anyway, and with her, all of mankind. Michael is determined to find another solution when a traitorous kidnapper forces him into a deadly confrontation. Even if he can save Tory from Uriel’s ruthless clutches, will they ever really be together? Or is her fatal destiny—and the world’s—written in stone?

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES

From a master of contemporary fantasy comes the first novel of a landmark series unlike any you’ve ever read before. With A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has launched a genuine masterpiece, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill the pages of this magnificent saga, the first volume in an epic series sure to delight fantasy fans everywhere.
 
A GAME OF THRONES
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE
 
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Unparalleled in scope and execution, A Game of Thrones is one of those rare reading experiences that catch you up from the opening pages, won’t let you go until the end, and leave you yearning for more.

Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

The bestselling, widely heralded, Jungian introduction to the psychological foundation of a mature, authentic, and revitalized masculinity.

Redefining age-old concepts of masculinity, Jungian analysts Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette make the argument that mature masculinity is not abusive or domineering, but generative, creative, and empowering of the self and others. Moore and Gillette clearly define the four mature male archetypes that stand out through myth and literature across history: the king (the energy of just and creative ordering), the warrior (the energy of aggressive but nonviolent action), the magician (the energy of initiation and transformation), and the lover (the energy that connects one to others and the world), as well as the four immature patterns that interfere with masculine potential (divine child, oedipal child, trickster and hero).  King, Warrior, Magician, Lover is an exploratory journey that will help men and women reimagine and deepen their understanding of the masculine psyche.

An anthology containing the first three novellas in Rosalie Lario's Fallen Warriors series. Each book is approx. 35,000 words.

In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of mankind. They are The Fallen.

For Love of an Angel -

Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect mankind. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium--the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth--but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of mankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all...for love of an angel.

Angel's Desire -

Fallen angel Ethan has been outcast due to his love of mankind. In order to preserve his immortality, he must find a mate with angel blood...but the one woman he desires blames him for her father's death. As a teenager, Tayla had a fierce crush on Ethan, her father's best friend. Her love turned to hate when he failed to save her father from being killed. Battle looms on the horizon, and Ethan can no longer afford to waste time. He must claim Tayla as his...but convincing her she's his mate won't be so easy.

For Want of an Angel -

Fallen angel Aaron has found the woman of his dreams, an alluring nephilim who has no clue what she really is. By taking her as his mate, he can preserve his strength and immortality...something he'll need in the fight against the angels who seek to destroy mankind. But first he must convince her that he and his Fallen brethren are not the evil beings they have been made out to be. Samantha Benson has the ability to interfere with electrical signals, an attribute which makes professional thievery the perfect career for her. As if her special abilities weren't enough to deal with, a fallen angel lands right before her and tells her she has angelic blood. He also expects her to believe the Fallen are really the good guys, and that the rest of the angels plan for human annihilation. Surely the sexy-as-sin Fallen is lying. But if so, then why do his words hold the undeniable ring of truth?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BOOK BEHIND THE FIFTH SEASON OF THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES

Don’t miss the thrilling sneak peek of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Six, The Winds of Winter

Dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark series—as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.
 
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVE
 
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance—beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.

Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys’s claim to Westeros forever.

Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone—a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice.

From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all.

Praise for A Dance with Dragons
 
“Filled with vividly rendered set pieces, unexpected turnings, assorted cliffhangers and moments of appalling cruelty, A Dance with Dragons is epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”The Washington Post
 
“Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times
 
“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times

Armageddon has come. Angels and demons have erupted onto Earth's surface, battling for domination. Alisha Grace witnesses this battle, and she, like so many others, expects the angels to win. It soon becomes apparent, however, that the demon forces have powers beyond belief as Gabriel's angelic forces lose Armageddon. Rai is a fallen angel, leading the fight with his demon allies. Commander Krillion and Captain Zara are leaders in the Seraphim force, and although their armies have lost to Lucifer's demonic legions, they will not give up. But there is much more to this endgame battle than meets the eye. Even demons have history, and Rai will soon discover on which side he truly belongs. In the meantime, Israfil, the angel of judgement day, receives a new vision. As hell covers the Earth in its dark genesis, Israfil senses the building of a new team that will fight the evil ones. A demon, a girl from Earth, warriors of the Seraphim and a being brought forth from Purgatory will fight on the same side and only time will tell if they will be victorious, or if hope will be lost and darkness will rule the world for all eternity.

This dissertation examines the visual reception of military casualties in fifth-century Athens: the place of the war dead in the city's physical, artistic, and cognitive landscapes; the construction of a public visual rhetoric of struggle and sacrifice; and the refraction of this ideal in private art. To put it simply: Where were the fallen, how were they presented, and how were they viewed? To answer these questions, I examine the public cemetery ("demosion sema"), the monuments therein, the images of death and defeat on the Akropolis, and the relationship of this imagery to that found on private symposium vessels. I use the concept of "framing" to analyze and explicate the material culture surrounding the war dead in ancient Athens. By "frames" I refer to the physical settings of both objects (including ashes or bodies) and of images related to the fallen, together with other aspects of material culture that inhabit those settings and surround the objects and images under study. At the same time, I am interested in how these physical frames create referential frames: the mental structures that we use to understand the activity around us. Physical frame, referential frame, form, and content work together to produce meaning. In different places at different times, the fallen warrior could be viewed as belonging to a victory, to a defeat, or to the conceptual space between the two: the moments of intense struggle and effort when individuals strove to secure victory and avoid defeat. Following an introductory chapter, the second chapter presents the first comprehensive archaeological study of the "demosion sema," the public cemetery. Compiling and analyzing the findings from over three hundred urban rescue excavations, I demonstrate that the cemetery was established ca. 500 BC along the so-called Academy Road, and spread a short distance eastward. I trace the use of this space through time and show that the cemetery was not a delimited, organized, or controlled area. The war dead were removed from the center of the city into a setting with few visitors and interspersed among private graves, shrines, and workshops. By integrating the war dead into the landscape, the polis mitigated their potentially disruptive presence. I juxtapose the spatial arrangement at Athens with the layout of the Yasukuni shrine for Japanese war dead and suggest a model for understanding the organization of the "demosion sema." The third chapter addresses the artwork within the "demosion sema." The cemetery was not a place of lavish display in the early fifth century, and often the state burials dissociated themselves from the aristocratic monuments of the past. Moreover, they did not provide models for late fifth-century private funerary sculpture. The casualty lists, the defining visual aspect of the state burials, were potential monuments to defeat. The format and appearance of the lists, together with their epigrams and crowning figural reliefs, show how the Athenians mourned their losses while simultaneously creating defiant monuments of power and collective resilience. They historicized more than heroized the war dead, locating them in an extended narrative that blurred distinctions between victory and defeat. The casualty lists, particularly their friezes, did not passively honor the dead but created a viewer-oriented rhetoric focused on "agon." The fourth chapter turns to intra-mural sacred space. The Akropolis was not a stage for victory dedications alone but a place in which the Athenians repeatedly confronted the fallen warrior. Victory monuments and references to the fallen shared a concern to articulate, explain, and strengthen the relationship between mortals and immortals. Elaborating on C. Marconi's work on "kosmos" and T. Hölscher's study of "decor," and drawing on A. Gell's analysis of agency in art, I show that the representations of the fallen belonged to an imagery that actively invoked the gods through pleasing and appropriate depictions and that simultaneously confronted viewers and compelled them to contemplate the dead. They internalized death and the civic ideology of sacrifice for the city. Chapter five discusses the framing of the fallen on symposium vessels through a close study of the mythical Kaineus. This defeated Lapith could be framed to display heroic resistance, a victory in the face of death. However, a complete study of the images that accompany Kaineus on black-figure and red-figure pottery shows that in the fifth century artists sometimes framed Kaineus' defeat with scenes designed to elicit connotations to his earlier female gender. In the setting of the symposium, pervaded by sporting and play, the defeated Greek was not sacred. No sooner were martial ideals presented than they were subverted. The potential for Kaineus to be comic, either because of his posture or because of the surprise elicited through the framing devices, facilitated the viewer's gaze on death and defeat. This dissertation reaches the following five conclusions: 1) at Athens the war dead often were forgotten; 2) public intra-mural spaces could be used to portray the leadership and sacrifice of prominent individuals; 3) expanding the referential frame minimized the impact of defeat; 4) death on public monuments was not presented in the guise of victory, but embedded in a narrative of "agon"; and 5) images of the fallen on the Akropolis and in the symposium worked upon the viewer to internalize and accept death.

Addressing the role which divination played in ancient Greek society, this volume deals with various forms of prophecy and how each was utilised and for what purpose. Chapters bring together key types of divining, such as from birds, celestial phenomena, the entrails of sacrificed animals and dreams. Oracular centres delivered prophetic pronouncements to enquirers, but in addition, there were written collections of oracles in circulation. Many books were available on how to interpret dreams, the birds and entrails, and divination as a religious phenomenon attracted the attention of many writers. Expert diviners were at the heart of Greek prophecy, whether these were Apollo's priestesses delivering prose or verse answers to questions put to them by consultants, diviners known as manteis, who interpreted entrails and omens, the chresmologoi, who sang the many oracles circulating orally or in writing, or dream interpreters. Divination was utilised not only to foretell the future but also to ensure that the individual or state employing divination acted in accordance with that divinely prescribed future; it was employed by all and had a crucial role to play in what courses of action both states and individuals undertook. Specific attention is paid in this volume not only to the ancient written evidence, but to that of inscriptions and papyri, with emphasis placed on the iconography of Greek divination.

A dramatic tension confronts every Christian believer and interpreter of Scripture: on the one hand, we encounter images of God commanding and engaging in horrendous violence: one the other hand, we encounter the non-violent teachings and example of Jesus, whose loving, self-sacrificial death and resurrection is held up as the supreme revelation of God’s character in the New Testament. How do we reconcile the tension between these seemingly disparate depictions? Are they even capable of reconciliation? Throughout Christian history, many different answers have been proposed, ranging from the long-rejected explanation that these contrasting depictions are of two entirely different ‘gods’ to recent social and cultural theories of metaphor and narrative representation. The Crucifixion of the Warrior God takes up this dramatic tension and the range of proposed answers in an epic constructive investigation. Over two volumes, renowned theologian and biblical scholar Gregory A. Boyd argues that we must take seriously the full range of Scripture as inspired, including its violent depictions of God. At the same time, we must take just as seriously the absolute centrality of the crucified and risen Christ as the supreme revelation of God. Developing a theological interpretation of Scripture that he labels a “cruciform hermeneutic,” Boyd demonstrates how Scripture’s violent images of God are completely reframed and their violence subverted when they are interpreted through the lens of the cross and resurrection. Indeed, when read through this lens, Boyd argues that these violent depictions can be shown to bear witness to the same self-sacrificial character of God that was supremely revealed on the cross.
