Darian left his home at the edge of the Pelagiris Forest when barbarians attacked Errold's Grove and killed Wizard Justyn. Now, under the watchful eye of the Hawkbrothers, Darian is honing his craft and gaining new mage skills, not the least of which is an affinity for mind-speaking with his closest companion, the Hawk Owl Kuari. Keisha, a nartural-born healer, is proving indispensible in Errold's Grove, but her destiny seems ordinary when compared with her sister Shandi, who is Chosen to be a Herald. But there is much more in store for Darian and Keisha: they have a task, the outcome of which will affect all of Valdemar - and their guide is to be the legendary hero of the Mage-Storms, Firesong himself.

Imagination and Politics in Seventeenth-Century England

Todd Butler here proposes a new epistemology of early modern politics, one that sees-as did writers of the period-human thought as a precursor to political action. By focusing not on reason or the will but on the imagination, Butler uncovers a political culture in seventeenth-century England that is far more shifting and multi-polar than has been previously recognized. Pursuing the connection between individual thought and corporate political action, he also charts the existence of a discourse that grounds modern scholarly interests in the representational nature of early modern politics - its images, rituals and entertainment-within a language early moderns themselves used. Through analysis of a wide variety of seventeenth-century texts, including the writings of Francis Bacon and Thomas Hobbes, Caroline Court masques, and the poetry and prose of John Milton, he reveals a society deeply concerned with the fundamentally imaginative nature of politics. It is a strength of the study that Butler looks at unusual or slighted texts by these authors alongside their more canonical texts. The study also ranges widely across disciplines, engaging literature alongside both natural and political philosophy. By emphasizing the human mind rather than human institutions as the primary site of the period's political struggles, this study reframes critical understandings of seventeenth-century English politics and the texts that helped define them.

Following on from OWLFLIGHT and OWLSIGHT, Our Hero Darian has just passed the tests to become Master Mage of the Vale. He's been made a Knight of Valdemar and a Clanbrother. But a new Herald-Mage is arriving in k'Valdemar, and he's bringing with him his new protégé: Shandi, the Healer's sister, who has won her Whites in less than three years and is back looking for adventure . . . The OWLFLIGHT saga is set in the same wonderfully imagined fantasy world as Lackey's previous trilogies and is a story of 'local boy and girl make good against all odds'. The books are packed full of magic, talking horses, hawks, gryphons, lizards and other mythical races, with strong characterisation and a plot that really moves along. Like the previous books, this is lavishly illustrated with Larry Dixon's evocative character portraits.

An Adaptation of the Introduction to the Devout Life for Young People.French Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, Michel Tournade, writing originally in his native French, has ADOPTED the personal approach of his mentor and spiritual director, St. Francis de Sales, in writing to today's young adults. He follows the thoughts of DeSales' classic writing: Introduction to the Devout Life, which has never been out of print since its first publication in 1609.Francis de Sales (1567-1622), a contemporary of William Shakespeare, Galileo and St. Robert Bellarmine, was Jesuit educated with a doctorate in both civil and church law. At the age of 35 he became the Bishop of Geneva and spent 20 years reforming clergy and parishes, advocating education and the call to holiness for everyone, especially the laity. There is reason to believe that Francis wrote more than 10,000 letters of spiritual direction to men, women, lay and religious, 2500 of which we have access to today. In both his Introduction to the Devout Life and Treatise on the Love of God, he writes so personally, as if addressing a friend. It is exactly this style that Fr. Tournade brings to Falling in Love with God allowing Francis to once again speak to today's young audience.
