Sable has been exposed for who she is: Imari, the illegitimate daughter of Istraa's king, and a Liagé-someone born with forbidden Shah power. After ten years of hiding and surviving in the bitter cold Wilds, she is finally returning home. But it's not the homecoming Imari envisioned. After all, her father proclaimed her dead ten years ago, and with an anonymous Liagé leader operating in Istraa's shadows, attacking villages and burning down temples, her father fears the people will blame Imari. It could mean his throne, and her life. Worse yet, the night Imari played her flute in Skyhold's court, something unlocked inside of her, and now her power will not quiet. Neither will the growing fury she feels on behalf of Istraa's Sol Velorian labor- people who share her blood. As that fury becomes too loud to ignore, Imari chooses to use her position to liberate the Sol Velor. But can she free them without angering enemies hungry for the power she wields-a power that could rip the Five Provinces apart?

"This is the oldest and most authentic guide to an ancient Egyptian temple ever written - its author was an ancient Egyptian priest who lived in the first century B.C., under the last kings of the Ptolemaic dynasty, when the construction and decoration of the huge temple of Edfu was completed. The anonymous priest's tasks was to compose a text long enough to make up a line of hieroglyphic inscription on the girdle wall of the temple, stretching around it to a length of some 300 meters, and in it describe the temple in detail - its layout and construction, the functions of its chambers and chapels, and its external appearance and the impression it conveyed to the faithful. The language of the text, arising within the long tradition of Egyptian temple building, is stylized and poetic, but remarkably, the priest fulfilled his assignment with such accuracy, devotion, and enthusiasm that the monumental inscription can be used today by the modern visitor as a reliable and informative guide to the temple." "The inscription is here translated in full, and appears with notes by the translator on the essentials of ancient Egyptian religion and ritual and on the discovery and documentation of Edfu Temple, while a comprehensive glossary explains unfamiliar terms and concepts. Illustrations of the temple, the original hieroglyphs, and the kings who build the temple complement the text."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In the land of the six kingdoms, there are the mysterious ice kingdom to the far North, the three kingdoms of lightning, fire, and water constantly at war, and the wind kingdom in the West. All the way in the South, there lies the sand kingdom. Scattered across these kingdoms are rare powerful sources of immense energy known as Life Stones with each kingdom containing a main Life Stone. The Life Stones have a strange phenomenon of giving certain people the ability to create and control their surroundings that they were born around. In the sand kingdom, those affected by the Life Stone mostly find themselves able to create and control sand. They are called sand users and train to protect the largest Life Stone at the sand temple in Sand City. After mysteriously being away for two years, a sand user named Sento has returned to the sand temple to train his three new students: Sedge Gryder, Thuran Hurd, and Lora Farjoy. Sedge dreams of traveling through the six kingdoms despite there being an age old law by the sand council that no one born in Sand Kingdom may leave it. However, unknown to them, an ancient crystal enemy known as the Zarls that were sealed away have suddenly begun mysteriously appearing in Sand Kingdom again. Did someone unseal the Zarls on purpose? There may be a traitor at Sand City and it very well might be a sand user. To make matters worse tensions run high with a neighboring land in sand kingdom called Visc that Sand City was at once at war with. Yet the Zarls may prove to be too much for both lands to handle. Out of sand kingdom would come one who would shake the world of the other kingdoms, and start a new era that the world had never seen before.

To not surrender. To not avail one’s faith. To believe that God has His hand upon your shoulder when you feel nothing but worry. To see and feel His warmth at the cusp of disparity. This book is the story of how a young and inexperienced pastor got to witness firsthand God manifesting Himself mightily in a small church, how the workings of the Lord on the small but spunky congregation were peculiar yet tremendous, and how the project could not have been carried out without the faith of the many people who couldn’t understand the words give up. This is the story of the church of Mendota and Pastor Richard Meza’s strange but undeniably wonderful experience of God’s power. The congregation of Mendota Church was made up of hardworking families who had a many years’ dream of building a beautiful sanctuary. They dared to believe that with prayer and fasting and a lot of hard work, they could touch God’s heart. With no money and little resources, they had been allowed by God to build a beautiful seven-thousand-square-foot sanctuary in just seven months. In the midst of much turmoil, like the pastor’s wife getting a brain tumor and the contractor getting a stroke, God was able to confound the wisdom of man and demonstrate that He is truly a God of miracles.
Prior to that, I also found out that we needed hundreds of cubic yards of sand to be able to level out not only the foundation but also the rest of the ...

His quest will take him far from home, embroiling him in an ancient war, three-millennia past, that is about to re-ignite with world-shattering violence. Jagang, Emperor of the Imperial Order, has invoked an ancient magic, unleashing a lethal plague that sweeps across the land like a firestorm. To halt it, Richard, Wielder of the Sword of Truth, must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a repository of dangerous magics consigned to the Underworld three thousand years ago. But the path of the Seeker is never an easy one – for entry to the Temple of the Winds comes at a price, and as Richard and Kahlan will discover, the cost of leaving is even greater.
