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.
Collecting Alice´s complete adventures, a source of delight to children and adults alike for generations, the Penguin Classics edition of Lewis Carroll´s Alice´s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass is edited with an introduction and notes by Hugh Haughton. Conjured up one ´golden afternoon´ in 1862 to entertain Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of Carroll´s college, the dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down. Following the white rabbit into his warren, Alice falls into a world where croquet is played with hedgehogs and flamingos, a baby turns into a pig, time runs amok at a the Mad Hatter´s tea-party, a chaotic game of chess makes Alice a Queen and the Mock Turtle and Gryphon dance the Lobster Quadrille. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling wordplay, unforgettable characters, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for a lost childhood. Original and experimental, adapted into countless film and television versions as Alice in Wonderland, the Alice books give readers a window on both child and adult worlds. This is the most comprehensively annotated edition available and includes the manuscript version of Alice´s Adventures Under Ground and Carroll´s 1887 essay ´´´Alice´´ on the stage´. Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, Carroll was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon´s orders, but shyness and a constitutional stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood.
