"My love, speak to me. Tell me everything." Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal. "What would you have me say?" He didn't meet her eyes. "Zoey lives." Neferet's voice was flat, cold, lifeless. "She does." "Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul." She started to walk away from him. "Where are you going? What will happen next?" "It is quite simple. I will ensure Zoey is drawn back to Oklahoma. There, on my own terms, I will complete the task you failed." Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa's House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z. But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn't it? Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same – and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either... And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart? In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl's heart?

Das Ende der Welt beginnt New York, Flughafen. Eine Maschine aus Europa landet – und bleibt plötzlich stehen. Die Lichter gehen aus, nichts rührt sich mehr. Was ist geschehen? Ein Terroranschlag? Eine Seuche? Oder etwas ganz und gar Unvorstellbares ... Für Ephraim Goodweather, den Chef des New Yorker Seuchenpräventionsteams, ist es keine Nacht wie jede andere. Für die gesamte Menschheit ist es keine Nacht wie jede andere.

Goodweather trommelt seine Leute zusammen, und gemeinsam betreten sie das Flugzeug. Es bietet sich ihnen ein gespenstisches Bild: Die Passagiere sitzen aufrecht in ihren Sesseln und rühren sich nicht. Als Goodweather näher herangeht, bemerkt er bei allen einen kleinen Schnitt am Hals. Und er macht eine weitere unglaubliche Entdeckung: Die Passagiere leben – aber sie sind keine Menschen mehr ... Nein, es ist keine Nacht wie jede andere: In dieser Nacht beginnt der epische Kampf gegen das Böse, das gekommen ist, um New York zu erobern. Und nicht nur diese Stadt, sondern die ganze Welt.

In an attempt to protect their families, Livia and Adam set out in a search for answers that would change their lives forever. While on the run, Livia and Adam crossed paths with Daniel, who had been searching for other genetically enhanced teens. But getting out from under The Agency’s radar has not been easy. After being ambushed by the leader of The Agency that created them—a desperate attempt to claim what they lost just over a decade earlier—Livia was forced to leave Adam behind, barely escaping to safety with Daniel. Now under the control of The Agency, Adam is serving the purpose for which he was created. Manipulated to forget his love for Livia and his past, he lives a life crafted by fake memories that enslave him to a life of following the orders of the agency. Now Adam battles with vivid “dreams” of a life he does not remember and the strong connection he feels to the girl with familiar blue eyes. The desire for vengeance propels Livia and Daniel into a dangerous race to disrupt the destructive string of events that The Agency initiated seventeen years earlier. As they travel across parts of North America in search of other teens who are just like them, Livia will face an ethical battle over genetics, loyalty, and love. The race is on, and it is up to Livia to destroy The Agency and rescue Adam, but even if she succeeds at saving him, there are no guarantees she’ll able to save the deep connection they once shared.

My book attempts to present what I believe is a serious threat to our Constitutional Republic, based on the current administrations increasing imposition of Federal regulations, policies, and programs that infringe on the basic rights of the American citizens. It is partly my personal story of growing up in this great country and making a positive contribution to society, but it is also a call for Americans to wake up to the reality of the continued overreach of the Federal Government regarding decisions that should rightfully be made by private citizens. My goal is to encourage people to become personally informed and take action to end thus trend of intrusive government and return to the principles of our founders. It is not a call for an all out revolution or engaging in violence against the government. Rather, it is a call for a constructive engagement by the folks out here in the working trenches to wake up, stand up, speak out, and then act in a civil manner to bring positive change through positive ideas that are based on the values that have been cultivated and promulgated since the founding of the country. Finally, I hope to begin to restore our countrys reputation of American Exceptionalism that has been tarnished under the current administration. This is a promise I have made to myself and a legacy I want to leave my family, friends, and all people of good will.

DAMON — For twenty-five years he’s served as a plaything for the gods. With no memory of his past, he has no way of knowing if this is his ultimate fate, but he senses there has to be more to life. Damon’s hope for more comes in the form of the Sirens’ newest recruit. Elysia is unlike any trainee he’s ever met. Not only can she remember where she came from—an ability the Sirens block—but she has an instant connection to Damon, one he’s never felt and doesn’t understand. Soon Damon is willing to do anything to have Elysia. Even risk the wrath of the gods to break her out of Olympus so he can keep her for himself. But Damon’s past isn’t a mystery to everyone. Evil forces are at work beneath the surface, and before long, Damon realizes that the connection he shares with Elysia isn’t a random coincidence. His fate—and the darkness it brings—was cemented long ago. And when it is finally revealed, no one will be safe.

“Full of wisdom as well as practical guidance about how to bring spiritual illumination into the very heart of our humanness.” —John Welwood, author of Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships and Journey of the Heart Our natural state is to love and be loved. From deep within, we’re compelled to seek connection. Yet relationships remain a struggle—even for the most spiritually enlightened among us. Traumatic experiences, insecure attachment, and especially the false but commonly held belief that we are separate, both from each other and from the love we seek, can cause endless problems in relationships. As long as our connections are built on this untruth, lasting love and harmony in relationship will elude us. Awakened Relating can help. Written by a licensed therapist and pioneer in bringing the most direct teachings of non-duality into the practice of psychotherapy, this book offers practical guidance for improving relationships through “awakened relating”—a more enlightened experience of falling in love, communication, conflict resolution, and sexuality. With examples, guidelines, and experiential inquiries for realizing your true nature, this book will dispel common myths and mistaken beliefs about intimacy and help you cultivate a loving relationship with yourself and others. Including inspirational stories of people who practice awakened relating in their own lives, this book will show you how to identify, transform, and resolve the deep psychological issues that prevent you from having the harmonious, loving relationships you seek. Now is the time to realize the deep and ever-present love that exists within and all around you.
