Summary : “An original fantasy filled with magic and culture, the story of a character torn between two names, two loyalties, and two definitions of good and evil.”—Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Spine of the Dragon Wen Alder was born into two worlds. On his father’s side, a legacy of proud loyalty and service to the god-like Sienese Emperor spanning generations. And it is expected that Alder, too, will follow this tradition by passing the Imperial exams, learning the accepted ways of magic and, if he serves with honor, enhancing his family's prominence by rising to take a most powerful position in Sien—the Hand of the Emperor. But from his mother he has inherited defiance from the Empire, a history of wild gods and magic unlike anything the Imperial sorcerers could yet control. It began when his spirited, rebellious grandmother took Alder into the woods and introduced him to her ways—ways he has never been able to forget. Now, on the verge of taking the steps that will forge the path of his life, Alder discovers that the conflict between the Empire and the resistance is only the beginning of a war that will engulf both heaven and earth, gods and man—and he may be the key to final victory for whichever side can claim him as their own... “Sublime prose and pin-sharp characterisation combine to produce a captivating epic of conflicted loyalties and dangerous ambition.” —Anthony Ryan, New York Times bestselling author “The Hand of the Sun King is not the gentle story of a boy’s rise to power; instead, it digs its fingernails into the layers of an empire that would consume and erase half that boy’s identity. Brilliantly told and immediately engrossing, filled with magic, mistakes and their merciless consequences.” —Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter “The Hand of the Sun King is an outstanding debut novel with very well-conceived world building and an excellent, original magic system, and twists that will keep you reading late into the night and guessing until the very end. The thing that really makes it shine is the main character—I really loved his development throughout the story. Alder is a character I look forward to following for multiple books to come.” —Michael Mammay, author of the Planetside series “A great coming of age story about a foolish boy who seeks to unravel the secrets of magic and maybe do something good in the process. I absolutely loved it.” —Nick Martell, author of Kingdom of Liars “Well written, thought provoking and enjoyable, The Hand of the Sun King is an impressive debut novel that left me eager for more.” —Lisbeth Campbell, author of The Vanished Queen “A great debut novel.” —SFFWorld “A spellbinding debut with terrific characterisations, immersive world-building, and prose that swept me away ... hands down the best debut of the year. Scratch that; this is one of the best debuts I've ever read.” —Novel Notions “Exquisite ... Greathouse's characterisation, his prose, and worldbuilding are an absolute triumph.” —The Fantasy Hive “An excellent mix of classic and modern fantasy with a grimdark undertone of despair.” —Grimdark Magazine “The Hand of the Sun King is an enjoyable novel that pays great homage to the traditions and mythologies it borrows from.” —Quill to Live “Teeming with culture, doused in war, political intrigue ... but strikes out its own path in the genre.” —FanFiAddict “Set in a fantastical world of magic with a rich history, this novel fits beautifully into its genre while also addressing some failings of the genre by turning them on their head.” —Dawn Vogel, History That Never Was

Summary : Read the series that's sold more than 2 million copies--if you dare! Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he'd love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn't want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.

Summary : The alignment of the stars at Marie Mancini's birth warned that although she would be gifted at divination, she was destined to disgrace her family. Nonetheless, Cardinal Mazarin brings his niece to the opulent French court, where the forbidden occult arts thrive in secret. In France, Marie discovers that her powerful uncle rules, using Marie's sister Olympia to hold the Sun King, Louis XIV, in thrall. Desperate to avoid her mother's dying wish that she spend her life in a convent, Marie burns her grimoire, trading Italian superstitions for polite sophistication. As her star rises, King Louis becomes enchanted by Marie's charm. Sensing a chance to grab even greater power, Cardinal Mazarin pits the sisters against each other, showering Marie with diamonds and silks in exchange for bending King Louis to his will. Disgusted by Mazarin's ruthlessness, Marie rebels. She sacrifices everything, but exposing Mazarin's darkest secret threatens to tear France apart. When even King Louis' love fails to protect Marie, she must summon her powers of divination. Fraught with conspiracy and passion, Enchantress of Paris is a captivating historical novel about a woman whose love was more powerful than magic.

Will's at the door of their cottage, daring her to come ice-skating up at Frost Hollow Hall. No one goes near the place these days. Rumour has it that the house is haunted . . . Ten years ago the young heir, Kit Barrington, drowned there in the lake. But Tilly never turns down a dare. Then it goes horribly wrong. The ice breaks, Tilly falls through and almost drowns. At the point of death, a beautiful angel appears in the water and saves her. Kit Barrington's ghost. Kit needs Tilly to solve the mystery of his death, so that his spirit can rest in peace. In order to discover all she can, Tilly gets work as a maid at Frost Hollow Hall. But the place makes her flesh crawl. It's all about the dead here, she's told, and in the heart of the house she soon discovers all manner of dark secrets . . . Frost Hollow Hall is a thrilling historical fiction debut. Told in Tilly's unique voice, it is a tale of love and loss, and how forgiveness is the key to recovery. 'Believable, moving and just the right sort of frightening.'

Summary : This richly illustrated volume, the first devoted to maritime art and galley slavery in early modern France, shows how royal propagandists used the image and labor of enslaved Muslims to glorify Louis XIV. Mediterranean maritime art and the forced labor on which it depended were fundamental to the politics and propaganda of France’s King Louis XIV (r. 1643–1715). Yet most studies of French art in this period focus on Paris and Versailles, overlooking the presence or portrayal of galley slaves on the kingdom’s coasts. By examining a wide range of artistic productions—ship design, artillery sculpture, medals, paintings, and prints—Meredith Martin and Gillian Weiss uncover a vital aspect of royal representation and unsettle a standard picture of art and power in early modern France. With an abundant selection of startling images, many never before published, The Sun King at Sea emphasizes the role of esclaves turcs (enslaved Turks)—rowers who were captured or purchased from Islamic lands—in building and decorating ships and other art objects that circulated on land and by sea to glorify the Crown. Challenging the notion that human bondage vanished from continental France, this cross-disciplinary volume invites a reassessment of servitude as a visible condition, mode of representation, and symbol of sovereignty during Louis XIV’s reign.

Summary : "The Laws and Secrets of Success" - recently published and already an Amazon bestseller - has quickly received stellar five star reviews from leading Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewers (among the top 100 reviewers on all of Amazon): "Very, very highly recommend this UNIQUE book, it is the best book regarding how to be successful that I have ever read." -Daisy S., TOP 10 AMAZON HALL OF FAME REVIEWER "The power of his intuitions is infectious." -Grady Harp, TOP 50 AMAZON HALL OF FAME REVIEWER "This is one of those books where you will want to underline something important on each page. This is one of the most important books I have read in 2013." -Rebecca of Amazon, TOP 100 AMAZON HALL OF FAME REVIEWER About this book: This book is written in the style of the great Napoleon Hill. Think about this: With all of the success books out there, why don't we have more successful people? Too many success books simply rehash conventional wisdom. The truly great success books, such as "Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich", instead enable life-changing success breakthroughs because they identify and describe in powerful detail the thinking patterns and principles of the world's most successful individuals. The only way to do this is to study the world's most successful individuals, as Napoleon Hill has done. And as I have done as well. For over two decades I have devoted myself to studying and interviewing the most successful individuals across varying fields, so that I could see and learn for myself the principles which set them apart in terms of their success. And that is what I share with you here. Get ready to throw out many of the things that you thought you knew about success! Let's start at the beginning with a simple truth. Success is hard. Very hard. Very very very very hard. We all know that, once we have had a little bit of experience and are honest with ourselves. We all want to be more successful, but let's face it, sometimes we just don't know how. It's because, as they say, "we don't know what we don't know". So we make the same mistakes over and over again (often without fully realizing it until later). And then we blame ourselves (or others) in regard to why things didn't turn out as we had hoped, or planned. It's this simple: If you want to increase your level of success, read this book. We all go through the same struggles. This book - simply but powerfully - is your instruction manual on how to overcome them. Read this book, and in 60 days you won't even recognize the person you used to be. And neither will your family and friends. This is the type of change that allows you to get the things you really want in life. The things previously outside your reach. The things you saw others gain and achieve, but never seemed to be able to get for yourself. That can change today. . We all know that a few better ideas can accelerate one's success substantially. Successful people take their better ideas and know how to leverage them further - and execute them better - than other people do. Once you understand the processes that successful people utilize to do this, you can very quickly ramp up your own success as well. Everybody struggles. Successful people struggle just like unsuccessful people but they learn and use the success principles to overcome the difficulties in their lives to reach their goals. Success breeds confidence, making it easier over time. If you don't want to keep making the same mistakes over and over and over again, you need to understand and understand well what these success principles are. That is what this book provides to you.
