Summary

Mary Magdalene... The controversial woman with a past only one Man could forgive. A true love story that changed the face of history. "I was Miryam of Magdala, seller of fine fabrics and wife of Yaakov the fisherman. With my husband and son, I held a place of honor among my countrymen until a company of rogue soldiers took everything from me. I might not be Roman, but I knew injustice when I saw it. And I had been most grievously wronged." In an era when women are sequestered and silenced, Miryam of Magdala lives a contended life until her son's careless gesture evokes a hostile action that shatters her serenity. With no hope of justice, Miryam commits an unthinkable act...and descends into depths of darkness that threaten her life and her sanity. Even after Yeshua the Messiah dramatically restores her life, Miryam can neither forget nor forgive unresolved injustices. Prodded by a hunger for vengeance she will not deny, this woman of uncommon courage risks her life and her heart by drawing destiny into her own hands.

Remembering Ella: A 1912 Murder and Mystery in the Arkansas Ozarks

1 rating

Summary

In November 1912, popular and pretty 18-year-old Ella Barham was raped, murdered, and dismembered in broad daylight near her home in rural Boone County, Arkansas. The brutal crime sent shock waves through the Ozarks and made national news. Authorities swiftly charged a neighbor, Odus Davidson, with the crime. Locals were determined that he be convicted, and threats of mob violence ran so high that he had to be jailed in another county to ensure his safety. But was there enough evidence to prove his guilt? If so, had he acted alone? What was his motive?

This examination of the murder of Ella Barham and the trial of her alleged killer opens a window into the meaning of community and due process during a time when politicians and judges sought to professionalize justice, moving from local hangings to state-run executions. Davidson’s appeal has been cited as a precedent in numerous court cases, and his brief was reviewed by the lawyers in Georgia who prepared Leo Frank’s appeal to the US Supreme Court in 1915.

Author Nita Gould is a descendant of the Barhams of Boone County and Ella Barham’s cousin. Her tenacious pursuit to create an authoritative account of the community, the crime, and the subsequent legal battle spanned nearly fifteen years. Gould weaves local history and short biographies into her narrative and also draws on the official case files, hundreds of newspaper accounts, and personal Barham family documents. Remembering Ella reveals the truth behind an event that has been a staple of local folklore for more than a century and still intrigues people from around the country.

The Vampire Covenant

Summary

For the first time ever, the Vampire Covenant in one volume. Included in this omnibus is all three novels (The Vampires of Hope's Covenant, Rage of the Vampire, and War of the Vampire). Also included are short stories and a never before published sample of the upcoming prequel novel: The Birth of the Vampire: The Journal of Kersey Avonwood. From the Vampires of Hope's Covenant: In the far reaches of Mystyria lies Hope's Covenant, a small, coastal town at the foot of the world. Beneath a mansion in the outskirts, a powerful treasure is buried. A secret treasure. One that Dyne, a 300-year-old vampiress will stop at nothing to claim. With her vampiric army in tow, Dyne steps foot on the Birchlock Estate with Hannah, the small child she stole away from a torn family. But in Hope's Covenant, Tranas Anvaar arrives to bring justice to the vampiress - to make her pay for the lives she's destroyed. Once a peaceful man, Tranas now chases her across the world in an attempt to avenge his wife and daughter. But their meeting in Hope's Covenant is no accident. An ancient evil has brought them together. An evil that is trying to resurrect something long forgotten-something of true horror. Dyne and Tranas, immortal enemies, soon learn that they are merely pawns in a much larger game. From Rage of the Vampire: Kersey is afraid. After years of hiding away from Mydian, a vengeful god, she has been pushed to her limit - to her threshold of anger and resentment. A powerful vampire with the uncanny ability to control the dead, Kersey is a force to be reckoned with. But Mydian is not dissuaded. From the ashes of death, he sends Dyne back to the world of the living - to Mystyria to hunt her down. In the shackles of a human body, she will struggle against all odds - mortal inadequacies, rivalry, jealousy and deceit. Their quests will run parallel across the realms in pursuit, in fear, and in quiet deception while the gods watch on. Unknowing to both, their actions will change the face of Mystyria and ignite a brewing conflict. An angry god started the first war, an angry god started the second, the rage of a woman will start the third.... From War of the Vampire: War is ravaging Mystyria. As his unholy capital of Bloodgate is torn apart by traitors and feuding gods, Mydian must abandon his Underworld and reclaim it. Hidden within a mortal body, he seeks out his enemies' spies while preparing for a monstrous army of undead bound for his city. With the aid of a fellow god, he devises a plan to conceal the sun - to create a safe haven for his ravenous vampires. Only one person stands in his way.... Far to the north, Dyne struggles to flee from Mydian and his servants. Now a traitor and facing the same persecution as Kersey, she's been forced to stay hidden in hopes of avoiding a torturous afterlife. With the keys to his domain in her possession, she grows empowered to stand against him. But Mydian is not the only one who chases her. Another soul, an innocent face from the past has returned to punish her for bad things long forgotten. All souls will unite to bring an end to the third and most deadly conflict in Mystyrian history. In Dyne's final adventure across the realms, will she find the peace and comfort she's sought for over 300 years? From vampire, to victim, to legend...the War of the Vampire will decide....

The Slave Girl

Summary

Harriet Jacobs once said, "Slavery is terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women." Yes indeed. Men faced many hardships during slavery. They were beaten severely, starved, worked to the point where they couldn't anymore, and endured many more sufferings. On the other hand, women also faced these similar hardships and had to suffer even more. They would have to watch their children being taken away from them and sometimes never see them again. Women had to also deal with their master trying to sexually harass them and so on. This is the story of Harriet Ann Jacobs, a story of slavery in the 19th century, a story of terrible human suffering, and a story that, later on, played a significant role in the abolitionist movement. Slavery still continues everywhere in the world; its operational styles have changed, but its brutality has remained the same, and it harms human lives in the same way it used to harm in the past. Today, there are many women (and men too) like Harriet Jacobs that are suffering in slave trades in many parts of the world under our very eyes. 19th-century Harriet represents many other slave women who need to be free like Harriet finally was. Hence, Harriet's story has been brought here as the second volume of Absurd's Slave Narrative series as a wake-up call to save the victims of slavery and to save the mankind.

Changeling's Fall

Summary

Her Faerie Tale is getting awfully grim.

Deor Smithfield had it all figured out. She had a great education, a new job teaching at a good university, and a plan to move across the country to start her new life.

Then her body betrayed her, and she seemed to be falling prey to the same wasting sickness that killed her mother. When medical science failed her in spectacular fashion, Deor's grandmother told her that her long-lost father was more than just another deadbeat dad - he was a faerie, and she's a Changeling, half-human, half-fae.

Now Deor has to rush to Faerie in search of her missing father before his magical parting gift kills her. She's in a new world with no friends, no money, no job, and only a few days to find her disappearing daddy before she's kicked back out into the mundane world to die.

Oh yeah, and somebody's hunting Changelings in Faerie.

Changeling's Fall is the first volume of the Eisteddfod Chronicles, the stunning debut contemporary high fantasy series from Sarah Joy Adams and Emily Lavin Leverett.

Black Dog

Summary

Inspired by the classic Led Zeppelin song, and the 12th Justice Security story, Black Dog takes place very soon after the events of Hell's Bells. The story opens with Jessica Queen, Percival "King Louie" Washington, and Dexter Beck dealing with recurring nightmares. The dreams are so bad that all three consult with Dr. Caleb Mitchell, the Justice Security staff psychiatrist. Caleb discovers a common thread running through the dreams and prescribes two things for each of them: a strong sedative to help them sleep and to deal with the apparent issues that are causing the nightmares. Easier said than done.  Jessica must deal with an earlier case - the genetically enhanced dog from Mama Told Me Not to Come. While assurances came from the owners of the deadly dog's siblings, Jessica doesn't believe that all of them are dead. Louie, on the other hand, must deal with the betrayal of his former girlfriend Donna. Since Donna was an agent working for Esteban Fernandez, Louie has been afraid to date anyone. He must overcome his fears and convince himself that not every woman is going to betray him and those he loves. Dexter is dealing with his own issues, and his problems won't go away without some serious soul-searching. Meanwhile, Carly Stewart-Li has returned from rehab and has made an unexpected life choice: She's chosen to turn her back completely on Hollywood and wants to become a plainclothes operative for Justice Security!  Grief, twists, turns, and the loss of another partner - Black Dog gives you a look at the private lives of the people of Justice Security!

Summary

Flicker is a modern-day ghost story set in a haunted diner.  When Charlie Brace buys, refurbishes, and opens a diner that’s been up on blocks for many years, he gets much more than he bargained for, from neon signs that flicker insanely, to a quirky staff, to odd customers, to an even stranger hobo-philosopher who picks through his dumpster while lecturing him on the moon and mythology, to the amorous advances of the previous owner’s widow, to a mysterious mother and child who appear at the diner one morning carrying steaming baskets of pies that are, in a word, charmed, to the appearance of ghosts with murderous intentions.  Are the mother and child ghosts, or do they just bake great pies? What about Charlie’s head waitress, who dresses like a woman from the 1950s and spouts diner lingo no one has used in years? What about the man in the dumpster? What about the widow, who seems to be holding back about her husband’s death? And what about the customers, who grow anxious and impatient whenever the pie runs out? Who exactly are the ghosts, why are they haunting the diner, and why do they want to kill Charlie?  L. Rett Boswell is also the author of The Leadership Secrets of Squirrels and Skeleton: A Bare Bones Mystery.
