Into a Dark Realm

The dread plot to destroy the Empire of Great Kesh has failed. The Conclave of Shadows has ended the murderous Nighthawk brotherhood’s horrific reign of terror and death. But the mad sorcerer, Leso Varen, has fled, taking refuge among the most powerful men and women on Kelewan—a world now threatened, along with Midkemia, by hordes of the most vicious warriors in the known universe. The great sorcerer Pug knows of no power that will vanquish these invaders. And now he, brave Magnus and Nakor, and a disturbing young stranger named Bek must venture into the poisonous heart of the Dasati realm—the most terrible place they have ever encountered—in a valiant, impossible attempt to turn the tides against the encroaching doom that would swallow their world.

Interesting Times

SUMMARY: “May you live in interesting times” is the worst thing one can wish on a citizen of Discworld — especially on the distinctly unmagical sorcerer Rincewind, who has had far too much perilous excitement in his life. But when a request for a “Great Wizzard” arrives in Ankh-Morpork via carrier albatross from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it’s he who’s sent as emissary. Chaos threatens to follow the impending demise of the Agatean Empire’s current ruler. And, for some incomprehensible reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a mythic role in the war and wholesale bloodletting that will surely ensue. (Carnage is pretty much a given, since Cohen the Barbarian and his extremely elderly Silver Horde are busily formulating their own plan for looting, pillaging, and, er, looking wistfully at girls.) However, Rincewind firmly believes there are too many heroes already in the world, yet only one Rincewind. And he owes it to the world to keep that one alive for as long as possible.

The Intention Experiment: Use Your Thoughts to Change the World

What if thought had a physical effect on the world that could focus our lives, heal our bodies…and even transform the planet? Lynne McTaggart, groundbreaking author of ‘The Field’, takes us on a mind-blowing journey with remarkable evidence that the universe is connected with a power that can be harnessed to change our lives – and the world.
For the last 40 years renegade scientists, experimenting with the limits of quantum physics, have made seemingly impossible discoveries. 1966: a lie-detector expert accidentally discovers that plants can read thoughts. 1982: meditating Buddhist monks in the Himalayas turn their bodies into a human furnace. 1994: a psychologist’s experiments reveal a stream of light flowing from healers during healing.
These events form part of an extraordinary scientific detective story about a revolutionary discovery – that thought is a thing that affects other things.
In The Intention Experiment, Lynne McTaggart, author of the international bestseller The Field, takes you on a mind-blowing journey to the farthest reaches of consciousness. Building on the discoveries of The Field, which documented evidence of a quantum energy field connecting the universe, McTaggart joins forces with a team of international, renowned scientists to test the effects of focused group intention on scientifically quantifiable targets – animal, plant and human.
The Intention Experiment is a truly revolutionary book. It shows how human thought and intention has the power to focus our lives, heal our illnesses, clean up our communities and improve the planet. It also offers you a practical programme to harness that power to make changes in your own life. And it invites you, the reader, to take part in the greatest ongoing intention experiment in history, the results of which have begun to yield remarkable evidence about the power of thought.

Intensity

Chyna Shepherd is a twenty-six-year-old woman whose deeply troubled childhood taught her the hard rules of survival, and whose adult life has been an unrelenting struggle for self-respect and safety. Now rare trust has blossomed for Chyna into friendship with the woman whose family home she is visiting for the weekend: a farm in the Napa Valley surrounded by vineyards and hills, which Chyna can see from the guest-room window where she sits at one o’clock in the morning, fully dressed, unable to sleep. Suspicions she learned in childhood still make her uneasy in unfamiliar houses–even this one, where her closest friend is sound asleep down the hall. And in this case her most disturbing instincts prove reliable. A man has entered the house, a man who lives for one purpose: to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits–to live with intensity.
His name is Edgler Foreman Vess. He likes to make words with the letters from his name–GOD, DEMON, SAVE, RAGE, ANGER, FEAR, FOREVER, are just a few of them–and then makes sentences with the words. One of his favorites, GOD FEARS ME, is sometimes the last thing he whispers to his victims. Edgler Vess is a self-proclaimed ”homicidal adventurer”: On this night, his adventure–murdering everyone in the house–becomes Chyna’s long nightmare.
Trapped in Vess’s deadly orbit, Chyna thinks only of getting out alive. But when she inadvertently learns the identity of Vess’s intended next victim, waiting for him far from Napa Valley, Chyna is gripped with concern for this other person, who is as innocent as Chyna, and as endangered. Driven now by a sense of responsibility for another, by a purpose and meaning beyond mere self-preservation, Chyna rises to unexpected heights of courage and daring–her only hope as the threat of Edgler Foreman Vess closes in and grows more horrifying moment by moment.
**Intensity** unfolds over the course of just twenty-four hours, but within that brief time frame, Dean Koontz gives us what is perhaps his most inventive, emotionally intricate, and terrifyingly suspenseful novel yet.

Instinctive

EDITORIAL REVIEW: **In Fox’s titillating new series we enter Serene, a supernatural playground where sexy shape shifters live behind the white picket fences…** Free spirited Jaclyn Vasenty is about to inherit a cosmetics empire, yet her scandalous personal history may ruin her chance for a corporate take-over. Saying goodbye to her naughty ways, she moves into a quaint gated community in Serene, New Hampshire. But these gates are locked at sunset… The town’s dark sensuality rocks Jaclyn’s insatiable appetite to the core-and stirs desires that are… inhuman. That’s because Serene is home to demons, witches, vampires, lycans, and panthers, for whom primal exploration comes naturally. Especially for shape shifter Slyck, the cunning panther who’s pushing Jaclyn to the brink of erotic possibilities and making her feel wildly…*feral*. As tension between species rises, Jaclyn learns she must draw on all her feminine wiles and join forces with Slyck if she wants to make it out alive.

Insomnia

SUMMARY: Ralph Roberts has a problem: he isn’t sleeping so well these days. In fact, he’s hardly sleeping at all. Each morning, the news conveyed by the bedside clock is a little worse: 3:15…3:02…2:45…2:15. The books call it “premature waking”; Ralph, who is still learning to be a widower, calls it a season in hell. He’s begun to notice a strangeness in his familiar surroundings, to experience visual phenomena that he can’t quite believe are hallucinations. Soon, Ralph thinks, he won’t be sleeping at all, and what then? A problem, yes – though perhaps not so uncommon, you might say. But Ralph has lived his entire life in Derry, Maine, and Derry isn’t like other places, as millions of Stephen King readers will gladly testify. They remember It, also set in Derry, and know there’s a mean streak running through this small New England city; underneath its ordinary surface awesome and terrifying forces are at work. The dying, natural and otherwise, has been going on in Derry for a long, long time. Now Ralph is part of it. So are his friends. And so are the strangers they encounter.

Insolito e crudele

Mentre Ronnie Joe Waddell sta per salire sulla sedia elettrica, la dottoressa Kay Scarpetta, capo dell’ufficio di medicina legale della Virginia, è intenta ai preparativi necessari per eseguirne l’autopsia. Ma la morte dell’uomo non è il solo evento di cui Kay debba occuparsi in quella fredda notte di dicembre. Poche ore prima è stato ritrovato un bambino col corpo orribilmente mutilato: un episodio di violenza sessuale che mostra inquietanti affinità con l’assassinio per cui Waddell è stato condannato. Ma allora, chi è salito sulla sedia elettrica? Cosa lega questi due fatti avvenuti a più di dieci anni di distanza e ai quali faranno seguito numerosi altri delitti? Chi è lo spietato assassino? E, soprattutto, perché Kay Scarpetta è la principale sospettata?
Tutto congiura contro Kay. Questa volta neppure la scienza sembra in grado di fornirle la prova in grado di scagionarla…

Inside the Kingdom

Saudi Arabia is a country defined by paradox: It sits atop some of the richest oil deposits in the world and yet its roiling disaffection produced fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers. It is a modern state, where wealthy princes and tycoons raise futuristic cities in the desert, and yet its powerful religious establishment would roll back its values fourteen hundred years to the time of the Prophet Mohammed. To fully understand our interdependent twenty-first-century world, we must understand Saudi Arabia.With Inside the Kingdom, author Robert Lacey gives readers a remarkable portrait in full of this most enigmatic of lands. More than twenty years after moving to Saudi Arabia during the oil boom to write his groundbreaking epic The Kingdom, Lacey returned to live once again among the princes and the paupers, the clerics and the progressives. What he found was a society slowly recovering from the past. In this recounting, which takes us from the bloody seizure of Mecca’s Grand Mosque in 1979 to the deepening of U.S.-Saudi relations during the Gulf War of 1991 to the fostering of a new generation of Islamic holy warriors led by Osama bin Laden, Lacey shows how Saudi Arabia came to the precipice at which it now stands, struggling to learn how not to be at war with itself.
