Book excerpt: NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “Steven Pressfield brings the battle of Thermopylae to brilliant life.”—Pat Conroy At Thermopylae, a rocky mountain pass in northern Greece, the feared and admired Spartan soldiers stood three hundred strong. Theirs was a suicide mission, to hold the pass against the invading millions of the mighty Persian army. Day after bloody day they withstood the terrible onslaught, buying time for the Greeks to rally their forces. Born into a cult of spiritual courage, physical endurance, and unmatched battle skill, the Spartans would be remembered for the greatest military stand in history—one that would not end until the rocks were awash with blood, leaving only one gravely injured Spartan squire to tell the tale. . . .

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Success will destroy elemental magic. Failure condemns this world and the next. Named Guardian of the Elemental Spheres, Lavinia seeks the lost gates to the spirit realm and their ancient guardians. But some of the guardians have left their duties and those that have stayed may prove as dangerous as her enemy, whose wrath threatens the world. To end an ancient punishment inflicted on them by the Goddess for their role in a forgotten war, the Ashanti will conquer this world and that of spirit to gain power over death. Lavinia must close the gates to stop the Ashanti, even though by doing so she risks ending all elemental powers. And the act has consequences greater than the ancient guardians imagine. But one gate has a new guardian as well as the old, and the last time he saw Lavinia, he tried to kill her before she stole his power. And he’s been seeking revenge … Continue this epic fantasy journey begun in book 1 of the Games of Fire trilogy, Spark of Defiance. Friendships are tested as what is sacrificed is more than some are willing to give. Welcome back to the world of Myrrah and meet the Elementals of Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Spirit who shape it. Pick up book 2 of the Games of Fire trilogy, the Gates of Fire & Earth, today! Q & A Should you read the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogy before reading Games of Fire? You should definitely read Spark of Defiance, book 1 of Games of Fire, before reading the Gates of Fire & Earth. I did my best to lightly explain some of the pertinent events from the first trilogy, the Rise of the Fifth Order, in this new epic fantasy trilogy, Games of Fire so that you could start with Spark of Defiance. But a few readers have said they got a lot more depth for having read the Rise of the Fifth Order first. They suggest you start there! It is certainly a great introduction to the world of Myrrah and the characters by starting with Born of Water, which is free to pick up. But I won’t say you absolutely have to. Is Games of Fire a continuation of the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogy? The Games of Fire and the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogies are related in that they are set in the same world of Myrrah, utilize many of the same characters, and are full of elemental magic. Games of Fire begins with Spark of Defiance, which is set six months after the final book, Spirit of Life, of the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogy ends. New problems have developed, so the Games of Fire story line is stand alone trilogy with the same heroes from the first story. However a few events that happened in the Rise of the Fifth Order are the cause of the new challenges rising in Games of Fire. So the two series are linked, but each consists of a different set of adventures and issues to solve. I’ve only ever heard of four elements, but these books have five even though it is based on elemental magic? This is true! Five elements, air, earth, water, fire, and spirit is actually an eastern philosophy. I wish I could say I invented it. Lol. The difference really comes with the element of earth. Only dead things and soil can be controlled by an Earth Elemental, while plants or anything living (like the ability to change into another living creature) is something that a Spirit Elemental controls. Spirit Elementals are also able to control the other four elements, at least to some degree. Part of the discovery in the Rise of the Fifth Order series is that the ability to control one element might indicate latent gifts in any element. However, it is always difficult to learn to control the element opposing your own. So a Water Elemental might learn to control fire, but only with difficulty! AND a few of the heroes have discovered that if you can learn to control fire, earth, air, and water then no matter what element you are born with, you can unlock some of the gifts of spirit.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC is one of the most famous battles in history. The heroism of the 300 Spartans who opted to remain behind to face the full might of the Persian host while their Greek allies made good their escape has become the stuff of legend. The story still inspires novelists and film-makers today (Frank Miller's fanciful 300 was a huge hit in 2007 and the film rights to Steven Pressfield's more historical novel Gates of Fire were bought by George Clooney, the film expected to finally surface in 2011 or 2012). But what is the truth behind the legends and why was this bloody defeat immediately accorded a halo of glory that has endured for nearly two-and-a-half millennia?Beyond the Gates of Fire brings together experts on the classical period from Australia, New Zealand and the United States to take a fresh look at various aspects of the battle. A substantial introductory section by the editors outlines the background to the conflict as well as the arms, armor and fighting styles of the opposing sides. The following chapters (9 of them) then discuss such questions as whether the defense of the pass really was a suicide mission; the exact topography of the battlefield itself in 480 BC, using the latest geological research and core samples; the impact of the battle on the Greek psyche; commemoration of the war dead; the impact of the original battle on the conduct of later battles in the pass, right up to the German invasion of 1941. For the classical scholar or the general reader whose interest has been piqued by the popular books and films, this book is sure to shed refreshing new light on the most famous last stand in history.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: JESUS CHRIST will come soon (Revelation 1:7). He will return to bring an Eternal Kingdom of peace and righteousness for Himself and for His beloved disciples. Humankind, however, brought forth seven mighty World Empires: Proud Egypt, cruel Assyria, the "golden, silver and bronze" Empires of Babylonia, Persia and Greece (Book of Daniel) and, in recent times, the Empires of the Romans and the Arabs. They all made life difficult for believers, but could not overcome Israel and the confessing church. Now a last Empire, the eighth one, is just around the corner. The Bible predicts: One of the seven World Empires will rise again from the abyss of history and try to seize Zion (Jerusalem) and the absolute power. But which one will it be? Here comes the surprising answer to well-known scholars as Arnold Fruchtenbaum (The Footsteps of the Messiah) or Joel Richardson (The Islamic Antichrist; Mideast Beast; Mystery Babylon) - fresh from the land of the Reformation. Courageous writes for watchful contemporaries in Europe and America. He refutes today`s lightly accepted origin of the End Time evil and shows that neither Rome nor Mecca are the main source of grief and evil. The New End Time Exegesis (NEE) provides an unusually clear and, at the same time, brighter future perspective for the Christians of the West. Reader ́s Voices "The Revelation of John ... made easy." "Can 450 million believers be wrong?" "We Christians of the West are free again, free to do good - even though dark clouds are appearing on the horizon." "A book that was born in Bethlehem." Paperback Edition with eight maps of the Biblical World Empires complete with information on their spiritual character; history; geographical location and extension.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 5th Academy: There is the simple story about magic, friendship, love, adventures of mortals and immortals. One hidden magic word, five powerful mystic families or clans, one magic Academy of the five nature elements, three strong heroes and lots of orcs, elves, centaurs... and yes! Demons, jinnees and sorcerers! There are lots of stories about love on the Earth, but each time there is something new to be added. I for one am not going to add another spiraling plot line. Now, let’s take an immortal story like Romeo and Juliette, change their names and put the main characters in the present time. Let’s make their two families, who hate each other, not only powerful and rich, but also immortal and magic. Then send our young lovers to an Academy, but not a common, usual University for mortal students, it should be something dangerous, magical and complicated. Something between death and life. And there, finally, let’s test their love with jealousy, danger, distance, fire, and water. Maybe -why not- death… Let’s watch, how their feelings for one another grow stronger and become insatiable… The book's recipe: 35% MAGIC SCHOOL 30% TEENAGE LOVE 25% CUNNING VILLAIN 10% PLOTS and DANGER The author of this little story is a BIG FAN of "Hunger Games" by Susan Collins, "The Ender's game" by Orson Scott Card, “Divergent” by Veronica Roth and, of course, “Harry Potter” by J.

Book excerpt: In The Twelve Gates, clinical anthropologist John Rush embarks on a spellbinding journey through death rituals in various cultures, centering on the ancient Egyptian philosophy of death and resurrection. The first part of the book provides an overview of different rituals, encouraging readers to confront their feelings about death and to reevaluate their lives. The author details his own experiences preparing for death, including a painful tattooing process inspired by the ancient Egyptian Books of the Netherworld. He then guides readers through the Twelve Gates of the Underworld, symbolic ritual stages during which they can figuratively experience death and rebirth. A set of full-color tarot cards, designed by the author, is included as an aid in passing through each of the Gates. These ancient rituals, performed by pharaohs and priests for thousands of years, help ease the way toward a peaceful, conscious death.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the acclaimed master of historical fiction comes an epic saga about a reluctant hero, the Roman Empire, and the rise of a new faith. Jerusalem and the Sinai desert, first century AD. In the turbulent aftermath of the crucifixion of Jesus, officers of the Roman Empire acquire intelligence of a pilgrim bearing an incendiary letter from a religious fanatic to insurrectionists in Corinth. The content of this letter could bring down the empire. The Romans hire a former legionary, the solitary man-at-arms, Telamon of Arcadia, to intercept the letter and capture its courier. Telamon operates by a dark code all his own, with no room for noble causes or lofty beliefs. But once he overtakes the courier, something happens that neither he nor the empire could have predicted. In his first novel of the ancient world in thirteen years, the best-selling author of Gates of Fire and Tides of War returns with a gripping saga of conquest and rebellion, bloodshed and faith.

Book excerpt: Born to serve. Trained to lead. Can a man of two species bridge the critical gap between his peoples? 2454. Micah Trace’s half-human heart races as his expedition approaches Earth. Taking leadership of a one-way-trip from Ceres, he fears the memory of a centuries-old mass abduction means they’ll face a hostile reception. And his desperate claim of a shared ancestry falls on deaf ears when the traumatized Earthers greet them with suspicion, capture, and interrogation. With relations treading a knife’s edge, the offworld ambassador finally proves his genetic roots and convinces the nervous population to repair the stargate and reconnect their worlds. But some resent alien interference in the planet’s affairs, and Micah suspects that they may be willing to kill to ensure his mission’s doom. Can the hybrid herald unite his two species before the past destroys their future? The Two Gates is the thrilling second novel in the science fiction Traceverse saga. If you like complex interplanetary politics, stunning character revelations, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Eric R. Swanson’s galactic tale.
