Auric Spellsmith and Jericho Carver saved the world - but the world is less than pleased. Accused of causing a magical energy crisis and of "conduct unbefitting magicians", the pair travels to the big city to defend its case, Rill and Jaspyr in tow. But they soon find themselves embroiled in a world where everyone has an ulterior motive. Politics is a web of deception more dangerous than Fey magic.   Then Auric discovers Lotta, an attractive but eccentric engineer whose invention could solve the Republic's energy crisis - if they can survive long enough to test her theories. The mysterious assassin who is after her now hunts Auric and Jericho, too.   At odds with the law and criminals alike, Spellsmith and Carver will need every drop of wit and magic to survive.

Sinbad at the Dawn of Time

Summary

Sin has risen, and only Sinbad and his friends stand in its way. The Sinbad Forever Trilogy concludes with an epic for the ages - and through them - as Sinbad and his unique band of adventurers find themselves struggling to survive against the teeth and talons of prehistoric creatures to whom they represent nothing more than annoyingly elusive meals. Cast many millions of years into Earth's past by Hades, the legendary hero and company must somehow make their way back to their own time to stop the most insidious and powerful of dark deities and his legions of winged demonic minions from storming Olympus...and beyond. Desperate to prevent that return, the would be world-destroyer has sent the venomous sorceress Circe to the Triassic Era in the form of a terrifying beast with an overriding objective: take Sinbad out permanently. Can the legendary hero and his determined allies - faithful first mate Rashid, Orpheus' brilliant but haunted brother Linus, the uncannily agile and commensurately fearless Kalyx of Marini, and the bizarre energy being they call Elek - survive Circe, then go on to defy the rules of time and space itself to prevail against mountainous odds? Probably not. At least not without some serious help. And odds are it'll be the kind of help that comes at a price; after all, it takes a very special something - abject and irrational denial, maybe? - to stand up against four vampire demigoddesses, an army of winged monsters...and the deity whose very name has become synonymous with Evil.

Summary

Galileo Galilei began his career as a mathematician. Yet as fate would have it, he became far more than a numbers whiz. Here was a true Renaissance man; one who was greatly educated and a genuine lover of the arts. He was a fan of poets and a fine lute player. When in 1609 Galileo created his first telescope and turned his attention to the skies, everything changed. His discoveries, as they came, could not be denied. Because of his years of study in the arts and humanities, Galileo was well prepared to bring his ideas into the light of day.  Inside you will hear about.... Living in the Italian Renaissance Student becomes master Opposition to the Church Controversial theories The trial of Galileo Galilei The end of all things And much more! Discoveries often don't come easy and introducing them to a doubting world is even more challenging. It takes a certain kind of person to do that and Galileo was just the man for the job. It was his brilliance that supported the Copernican system of how the solar system was laid out. It was his original thinking which kept him fearless in the face of the greatest adversary there was - the Church. Come along to discover what made Galileo so great. And why his achievements can influence your life, too.

In his storied days, Sinbad travelled the world, charting its lands, experiencing the wonders, terrors, and treasures to be found across the Seven Seas. But there is an ocean that he has not yet touched, let alone explored: one so incredibly vast and daunting that to look upon its shores - as indeed he has done all his life - is to gaze into an infinity of possibility...and danger. In the wake of the cataclysmic Siege of Aderadad, having learned his father is alive “somewhere out there,” Sinbad is devoted to finding him - a compulsion that will lead him and a few of his closest allies to places beyond imagination. But another seeks Sinbad’s father as well: Belagorn, mage of great power and cleverness and even greater darkness, from whom Sinbad’s father has stolen the key to immortality. The race across the cosmos is on, its stakes no less than the impending rise of an evil god....

Summary

In the middle of World War II, Nazi military intelligence discovered a seemingly easy way to win the war for Adolf Hitler. The three heads of the Allied forces - Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Josef Stalin - were planning to meet in Tehran in October, 1943. Under Hitler's personal direction, the Nazis launched "Operation Long Jump", an intricate plan to track the Allied leaders in Tehran and assassinate all three men at the same time. "I suppose it would make a pretty good haul if they could get all three of us," Roosevelt later said. Historian Bill Yenne retells the incredible, globe-spanning story of the most ambitious assassination plot ever thwarted in Operation Long Jump.

Marquis de Lafayette: A Life From Beginning to End

Summary

The Marquis de Lafayette may be a name that sounds vaguely familiar. If you've studied even a little American history, you'll recall Lafayette as George Washington's right-hand man during the American Revolution. This remarkable man was just a teenager when he ventured across the seas from France to fight in a conflict that he was in no way obligated to participate in. Yet, here he was, this young man full of idealistic thoughts, ready to help a country set their path on the road to independence. Little did Lafayette know that this would be just the first ride among many that he would take in his lifetime. You will learn about.... Early Life Farewell to France American Revolution France and America Once Again An American and a French Hero French Revolution Going From Bad to Worse And much more! For what Lafayette accomplished in America and what he brought home to France was unmistakably unique in his own time. For over 70 years this man would be the well-known and intimate friend of world leaders on both sides of the Atlantic. The Marquis de Lafayette can truly be called an American patriot; one who tried his best to bring America's best to the world's stage. Lafayette reached out to all; the poor, the middle classes, and the nobility. He believed in freedom for all people and for that we should be truly grateful.

Sinbad and the Argonauts

Summary

Two legendary heroes, one incredible destiny. Lost and cursed by treasure, Sinbad is racing to save his mother's realm from an advancing army of monsters. Agonized by his mistakes, Jason has taken the Argonauts on a seemingly impossible quest to alter the past. Their fateful paths cross on an island guarded by monstrous titans and warriors of rock and magma, where they find the secrets of a great crystalline temple are barred to even the greatest of "mere mortals." Forced to seek help, they set off together to confront the demigod Jason left behind: the mighty Heracles. Together the three might have some fighting chance of surviving the dangers ahead; that is assuming they don't kill each other first.  Dragon's Game Trilogy creator Kevin Candela blends two classic mythologies of literature and cinematic adventure into a single epic loaded with action, thrills, and laughs. Heavily inspired by the films of Ray Harryhausen, Sinbad and the Argonauts is laden from stem to stern with quirky characters, terrifying monstrosities, determined heroes and heroines, and the type of crazy interpersonal drama that could only come from the admittedly improbable meeting of bigger-than-life people with extraordinary talents.  So grab a spot on the rail, feel the breeze, and smell the salt air. And enjoy the sun while you can, because that's a storm on the horizon.

Alexander Hamilton: A Life from Beginning to End

Summary

Alexander Hamilton did not rise to public prominence as an austere New Englander or a gentlemanly Virginian. He was not born in the colonies at all. He was born in the West Indies, the son of a woman of French descent who had left her husband for another man. As an illegitimate child, Hamilton could not be educated in the local church school, so businessmen, impressed by his remarkable intelligence, sent him to America for his schooling. The American Revolution would interrupt his vacation but accelerate his promotion to the national stage from his service as George Washington's aide-de-camp to his position as the new nation's first Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton understood money and knew that for the nation to thrive, it had to become financially strong, a stance which brought him into contention with other Founding Fathers who distrusted his enthusiasm for a strong central government. Inside you will hear about... Hamilton Rises  The Patriotic Prodigy  Hamilton the Politician and Puller of Strings  Washington's Man at the Treasury  The Reynolds Affair  Back to New York  Hamilton and Burr: The Final Chapter His extramarital affair with a married woman brought his public career to a conclusion but he continued to involve himself in political intrigue. It was his role in a contested election that brought him to a duel with Aaron Burr, the shadowy character in American history. Scandal and death cannot overpower the mighty role he played in building the United States of America.
