It´s cold. The wells of power are weakening and the forces of Night grow strong. The gods are real, and still have some power, mostly to do harm. The Instrumentalities of the Night are the worst of these. Piper Hecht, born Else Tage, survived a battle with the Instrumentalities. Now he´s Captain-General of the armies fighting a crusade for Patriarch Sublime V. Intrigues swirl around the throne of the Grail Empire, as the imperial family´s enemy, Anne of Menand, raises money to help the perpetually indebted Patriarch finance his crusades. To reduce his own vulnerability, sickly young Emperor Lothar assigns his two half-sisters - his immediate heirs - to their own realms. Now Piper Hecht learns that the legendary sorcerer Cloven Februaren, referred to as the Ninth Unknown, is still alive, more than 100 years old, and on Piper´s side. As the dynastic politics of the Empire become even more convoluted, it´s clear that while the old gods may be fading, they´re determined to do everything they can to bend the doings of men to their own advantage. Sieges, explosions, betrayals, Anti-Patriarchs, and suspicious deaths will ensue as the great chess game plays itself out, with Piper Hecht at the center of it all.... 1. Language: English.

The game of chess is a lot like life. If you make smart moves, then you can stay away from danger, but any bad decision could be your last. As Christians, it is imperative to have a strategic understanding of Heaven´s perspective of the Kingdom of Light versus the kingdom of darkness. Every move, every decision, every act of obedience has an outcome that determines our victory or defeat. Author Daphne Delay gives the listener insight into understanding righteousness, deception, and authority. Once you have an understanding of these three things, you are like a soldier prepared for battle and equipped for the task. Then, you can go and shine as a light into the world as Jesus commanded us to do. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daphne Delay.

This is the Authorized Official photo book on ABBA, one of the greatest pop groups of the 20th century. The group has sold a stunning 375 million records and in some markets, the United Kingdom for example, they have sold more records than the Beatles. This 400-page large format book - in the format of a classic LP - contains more than 600 pictures, many never published before. All the classic images are included but also previously unseen pictures by top professional photographers. The book covers not only the stunning career of the group but also tells the story of the four members before ABBA - and what happened after the group broke up, including the international success of the musicals Chess and Mamma Mia. ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton on April 6, 1974, and the book is being launched in the spring of 2014 as a celebration of that international breakthrough.
The Penguin English Library Edition of Alice´s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll ´´´Curiouser and curiouser!´´ cried Alice (she was so surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). ´´Now I´m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Goodbye, feet!´´´ ´I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole ... without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,´ wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one ´golden afternoon´ in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disorderly tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
Based on the Speech Plasma method, this book is designed to teach students to speak English in a natural, conversational manner. This book includes personal stories narrated by 17 people from different parts of the United Kingdom, the USA, Ireland, Canada, and Australia. The volume is supplied with audio files. Our intention in recording this range of voices was neither to collect as many accents as possible nor to find the most typical or strongest accents. Rather, our aim was to illustrate a range of regional pronunciation in English. By listening to the audio, the listener will hear the differences in the way native speakers communicate in English and get an idea of how the language is spoken in such diverse places as London, New York, Manchester, and many other parts of the English-speaking world. Accents, Personal Stories is part of the Fluency Practice series designed to expose students to English as spoken by native speakers in a range of situations. This book, however, differs from the others in the series in that while the stories the speakers tell were also recorded and transcribed, they were not edited in order to rid them of unnecessary repetition or other grammatical errors. This gives the stories the authentic flavor of English as it is spoken. Accents, Personal Stories can be used for listening and reading practice, for identifying regional accents and analyzing various informal types of speech. The book can also be used for teaching and learning how to present a personal story in a concise and interesting form. 1. Language: English.
