About The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli
The Prince (Italian: Il Principe) is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince is arguably the first works of modern political philosophy. Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli’s works and responsible for bringing the word “Machiavellian” into usage as a pejorative. The base assumption in the treatise is that the aims of a prince � such as glory and survival � justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends.

Prince Of The Blood

This Author’s Preferred Edition of Raymond E. Feist’s bestselling coming-of-age saga celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of its publication. Feist introduces a new generation of readers to his riveting novel of adventure and intrigue, revised and updated as he always meant it to be written. It is a work that explores strength and weakness, hope and fear, and what it means to be a man—in a kingdom where peace is the most precious commodity of all.
If there were two more impetuous and carefree men in the Kingdom of the Isles, they had yet to be found. Twins Borric and Erland wore that mantle proudly, much to the chagrin of their father, Prince Arutha of Krondor. But their blissful youth has come to an end. Their uncle, the King, has produced no male children. Bypassing himself, Arutha names Borric, the eldest twin by seconds, the Royal Heir. As his brother, Erland will have his own great responsibilities to shoulder. To drive home their future roles, Arutha sends them as ambassadors to Kesh, the most feared nation in the world. Borric and Erland will be presented to the Queen of Kesh—the single most powerful ruler in the known world—at her Seventy-fifth Jubilee Anniversary.
But they have not even left Krondor when an assassination attempt on Borric is thwarted. Aware that he is being provoked into war, Arutha does not rise to the bait. His sons’ journey will not be deterred, for nothing less than peace is riding on it. Yet there is to be no peace for the young princes. When their traveling party is ambushed, Borric disappears and is presumed dead—sending Erland into spirals of rage and grief as he is forced to navigate alone the court intrigues at Kesh. But unbeknownst to anyone, Borric lives and has escaped his captors. In a strange land, with a price on his head, Borric must use all his wits and stamina to find his way back to his brother.
On separate paths, the two men—one a fugitive and one a future king—make their journey toward maturity, honor, and duty. For every step they take could sway the fragile peace of the land, as those who crave war rally against them—and become ever more daring.

The Prince of Shadow

This first novel in a magnificent new fantasy series draws upon the rich legends, cultures, and traditions of the East to create an epic tale of kingdoms invaded, nobles enslaved, and a young man’s desperate quest to find his family and to face the challenge of a destiny which may be beyond any mortal’s power to fulfill….
Llesho was seven when the Harn invade his family’s mountain kingdom of Thebin. Sold into slavery on Pearl Island, he was, as far as he knew, the sole survivor of his royal family.
When Llesho was ten, the old man called Lleck secretly began to undertake the boy’s education.

So Llesho petitioned his lord to be trained as a gladiator, thus taking the first step on a road that would lead to conflicts with sorcerers, encounters with the avatars of gods, and a dangerous journey in search of the widely scattered family he had never expected to see again….

### Amazon.com Review
**An Amazon Best Book of the Month, October 2014:** Over a decade since the last installment of the Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice’s *Prince Lestat* reignites the love affair with the quixotic nosferatu who inspired writers, readers and Hollywood filmmakers. The newly resurrected, but no less rebellious, Lestat addresses a mysterious twenty-first century vampire genocide with the same panache, self-absorption, and drama readers have come to know and love. Rice masterfully populates the present-day storyline with a cast of characters from her previous novels along with new blood, so to speak, and reading this book is like seeing old friends whom you’d sort of forgotten about, but are thrilled to meet again—even if you are reading about them for the first time. *Prince Lestat* raises interesting questions about the boundaries of science, conflicting beliefs, and a universal need to belong; a welcome return to a narrative that spawned an entire subgenre of fiction. –*Seira Wilson*

Praise for Anne Rice’s
PRINCE LESTAT

“[Rice] retakes her throne as Queen of the Damned . . . visceral and gritty . . . [*Prince Lestat*] infuses new life into the Vampire Chronicles and sets the stage for a new era.

-Elise de los Santos, *Chicago RedEye*

“No one does what Anne Rice does . . . Not only does she find ways—brilliant ways—to tease new narrative potential from old stories, she does so while acknowledging that those stories are already part of the other characters’ psyches.  I don’t know of any other novelist doing that . . . she has not lost any of her flair for description, allowing us to experience the world the way her vampires do, with the sensory volume turned up to 11 . . . fun, sexy, and irresistible.”

-*January Magazine*

“Irrepressively seductive.”

-John Russell, *Next Magazine*

“Bloody marvelous . . . *Prince Lestat* is saving the undead from banality and overfamiliarity.”

-Daniel D’Addario, *Time*

“Chilling.”

-*Us Magazine*

“Anne Rice reminds us just how immense and rich with history her universe of poetic, morally questioning vampires is, and *Prince Lestat* serves as a palate cleanser to the hormone-soaked teen dramas of the past few years. It’s nice to have a real grown-up back in the game.”

-Cotton Codinha, *Elle*

“Ambitious…Rice never lost touch with the exuberant, often witty, and always fearless voice of irrepressible vampire Lestat de Lioncourt… Rice has offered us a tale of tremendous ambition, and she’s absolutely delivered.”

-Matthew Jackson, *BookPage*

Pride & Prejudice

Introduction and Notes by Dr Ian Littlewood, University of Sussex. Pride and Prejudice, which opens with one of the most famous sentences in English Literature, is an ironic novel of manners. In it the garrulous and empty-headed Mrs Bennet has only one aim – that of finding a good match for each of her five daughters. In this she is mocked by her cynical and indolent husband. With its wit, its social precision and, above all, its irresistible heroine, Pride and Prejudice has proved one of the most enduringly popular novels in the English language.
