In this story about Tom Morrow, Tom has agreed to help Khrestos find the Isle of Noam and his lost love Raven La Morna. But to the old man Taidg, with his dog Madra, the legend of Raven is well known through stories told round the fireside, of his childhood home, by his mother. He often wished that he could be the old man, with the dog, who it was foretold would witness her castle rise out of the sea when the circle of ravens were seen at the time of the Spring Equinox. His wish was granted early one morning when he saw the ravens circling the very spot of the legend. It was just before he heard a mighty roar as the castle emerged from the sea exactly as his mother had recounted so long ago. That day Taidg's life changed forever. Not only was his wish granted but he became a good and true friend to Raven La Morna who invited him to come and live at the castle of Noam. She pined for Khrestos too. Taidg assured her that one day he would come in a ship that bore large white sails. Khrestos did come, as predicted, but without Tom Morrow. Because of one of the legendary storms whipped up by The Abbess Mariah, Tom had been washed overboard. Luckily he was rescued by Sian, the Mermaid, who took him to Raven Castle under the sea. Khrestos and all on board the ship, The Star of The Sea, thought Tom was lost. At Raven Castle, Tom learned much. He discovered the lost city of Atlantis, amongst others, before being taken to the Isle of Noam much to the chagrin of The Abbess Mariah. The story continues.
Catarina é uma rapariga de uma pacata vila do litoral norte de Portugal e é através do seu diário que partilha connosco alguns dos momentos mais marcantes da idade a que ela mesma chamou «do azar». Com treze anos, Catarina não gosta do seu corpo, acha que tem um pai demasiado controlador que não a deixa fazer nada, quer ser uma detective implacável quando crescer, esforça-se por ter boas notas a Matemática e apaixona-se sempre pelo rapaz errado! Mas é também ao longo deste ano que aprende que a vida consegue ser ainda mais dura do que aparenta: a súbita doença da irmã Verónica e a gravidez aos quinze anos de uma amiga da escola vêm abalar a visão do mundo que até então Catarina tinha, obrigando-a a fazer descobertas importantes acerca de si própria e do universo que a rodeia… As alegrias, os desgostos, as dúvidas e os medos contados na primeira pessoa, na idade em que, apesar de tudo, o sonho ainda domina.
Thousands of years ago, the Skröm split off from the Light Clans and became Dark. Their greed for blood consumed them. Their once orange eyes bled to red, and they became one of the demons of legend. And when they die, they do not rest. They haunt. They take. They devour. Their souls become Shadows. Darkness. Death. Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez was born a monster. Red hair. Red eyes. Pale skin. And nowhere to call home. But after years of foster care and state homes, she has finally found her niche. A family. A promising career. And a life that’s fulfilling. Devon Waters ran from his hometown of Montville, New York fifteen years ago, and he found more than he bargained for. Reunited with his twin brother, a detective in the local police department, Devon doesn’t plan on running again. When a brutal, ritualistic murder happens right in their little college town, Alexia and Devon are pulled into a world of good versus evil that will have them both questioning who they are. The Skröm and the Shadows are closing in, and Alexia and Devon must join forces to stop the darkness at all costs. Will Alexia be able to fight her darker instincts, or will the devil inside of her draw her into its seductive web?

When famed psychic Perspicacious Peg predicts a murder will occur at England’s Belief and Beyond conference, her science-minded colleagues recruit twenty-six-year-old budding sleuth Emily Castles to attend the event as a “future crimes investigator.” The suspected victim: celebrated magician Edmund Zenon, who plans to perform a daring stunt at the conference—and is offering fifty thousand pounds to any attendee who can prove that the paranormal exists. In the seaside town of Torquay, Emily meets a colorful cast of characters: dramatic fortune-teller Madame Nova; kindly Bobby Blue Suit and his three psychic dachshunds; Sarah and Tim Taylor, devastated parents mourning their late son; and religious cult members Hilary, Trina, and the Colonel. Tensions rise as believers in science, the supernatural, and the spiritual clash with one another.
But once a body count begins, Emily must excuse herself from the séances and positivity circles, and use old-fashioned detective work to find the killer. Helen Smith is a member of the Writers' Guild of Great Britain, the Crime Writers Association and English PEN. She traveled the world when her daughter was small, doing all sorts of strange jobs to support them both--from cleaning motels to working as a magician's assistant--before returning to live in London where she wrote her first novel. Her work has been reviewed in The Times, the Guardian, The Independent, Time Out and the Times Literary Supplement.
Her books have reached number one in the bestseller lists in the Kindle store on both sides of the Atlantic.
Soldiers and Civilians analyzes the emerging civil-military "gap" in the United States, drawing on a major survey of military officers, civilian leaders, and the general public. The book's contributors, leading scholars of defense policy, find that numerous schisms have undermined civil-military cooperation and harmed military effectiveness.
From the pen of R.Austin Freeman, creator of Dr.Thorndyke (and among whose fans we find T.S. Eliot and Raymond Chandler), we get his second most famous character: Romney Pringle.
A poor literary agent and avid cyclist, Pringle is in truth a conman of the highest caliber, and his adventures are well-deserved members of "Queen's Quorum" of influential and important mystery and crime stories... This volume contains the complete 12 short stories; a true delight for Freeman's fans...
