Introduction to Programming

**Get a solid understanding of Java fundamentals to master programming through a series of practical steps**
#### Key Features
* Enjoy your first step into the world of programming
* Understand what a language is and use its features to build applications
* Learn about a wide variety of programming applications

#### Book Description
Have you ever thought about making your computer do what you want it to do? Do you want to learn to program, but just don’t know where to start? Instead of guiding you in the right direction, have other learning resources got you confused with over-explanations?
Don’t worry. Look no further. Introduction to Programming is here to help.
Written by an industry expert who understands the challenges faced by those from a non-programming background, this book takes a gentle, hand-holding approach to introducing you to the world of programming. Beginning with an introduction to what programming is, you’ll go on to learn about languages, their syntax, and development environments. With plenty of examples for you to code alongside reading, the book’s practical approach will help you to grasp everything it has to offer. More importantly, you’ll understand several aspects of application development. As a result, you’ll have your very own application running by the end of the book. To help you comprehensively understand Java programming, there are exercises at the end of each chapter to keep things interesting and encourage you to add your own personal touch to the code and, ultimately, your application.
#### What you will learn

Infinite Regress

An all-new story arc begins here!
The new Grandmaster of Whitehall doesn’t want Emily in his school. She’s dangerous, he thinks. The only way he’ll allow her to return to Whitehall is if she chooses to be a probationary student, a student who can be expelled at the slightest excuse, a student who has to work for one of the professors. Reluctantly, unwilling to leave her first true home, Emily accepts.
But she rapidly discovers that she’s about to be pushed right to the limit. She’s expected to do her studies, continue her private research… and mentor a group of young students who are new to the school. She has to supervise them, all the while trying to balance her schoolwork with her growing relationship with Caleb. It isn’t an easy task.
And when Professor Locke starts opening the tunnels under the school, hunting for the lost secrets of Old Whitehall, he triggers a series of disasters that threaten to tear the school apart. As the staff and students struggle to survive, with the very walls collapsing in around them, Emily is forced to solve a disturbing mystery…
…And figure out what it has to do with her private research, before the entire school comes to a final catastrophic end.

Infernal Magic

**She’s forgotten her past. Too bad her past won’t return the favor.**
Ursula can’t remember a single thing from before three years ago, so she has to keep her life simple. All she wants is to earn enough money for rent – and maybe a bit left over for a new pair of boots.
But on her 18th birthday, all hell breaks loose, quite literally, when a hellhound shifter shows up in her kitchen. Kester’s lethally gorgeous, and he’s come with a terrifying message: Ursula owes her soul to a demon.
No one seems to care that she doesn’t remember striking that deal.
Thrust into the middle of a war between the gods of fire and night, Ursula fights her way across New York – and through the fae realm – to survive. Along the way, she must reclaim her magical knowledge and her long-forgotten skills with the blade if she wants to escape eternal damnation.

Indomitable

*Also available in **[Legends II](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/77563.Legends_II “Legends II”)***
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks’s  *The Measure of the Magic*.
The time of the Shannara follows in the wake of an apocalypse that has destroyed the old world and very nearly annihilated its people as well. A thousand years of savagery and barbarism have concluded at the start the series with the emergence of a new civilization in which magic has replaced science as the dominant source of power. A Druid Council comprised of the most talented of the new races–Men, Dwarves, Trolls, Gnomes, and Elves, names taken from the old legends–has begun the arduous task of rebuilding the world and putting an end to the racial warfare that has consumed the survivors of the so-called Great Wars since their conclusion.
But the wars continue, albeit in a different form. Magic, like science, is often mercurial, can be used for good or evil, and can have a positive or negative effect on those who come in contact with it. In *The Sword of Shannara* , a Druid subverted by his craving for magic’ s power manipulated Trolls and Gnomes in his effort to gain mastery over the other races. He failed because of Shea Ohmsford, the last of an Elven family with the Shannara surname. Shea, with the help of his brother and a small band of companions, was able to wield the fabled Sword of Shannara to destroy the Dark Lord.
Subsequently, in the Elfstones of the Shannara, his grandson Wil was faced with another sort of challenge, one that required the use of a magic contained in a set of Elfstones. But use of the Stones altered Wil’s genetic makeup, so that his own children were born with magic in their blood. As a result, in the third book of the series, the Wishsong of Shannara, Brin and her brother Jair were recruited by the Druid Allanon to seek out and destroy the Ildatch, the book of dark magic that had subverted the Warlock Lord, and was now doing the same with the Mord wraiths.
The story that follows takes place several years after the conclusion of *The Wishsong* and again features Jair Ohmsford, who must come to terms with his obsession with the past and his use of his magic that his sister has warned him not to trust…
***Indomitable* by Terry Brooks, appearing soon in the *Legends II* anthology. **
**TERRY BROOKS** adds an exciting epilogue to *The Wishsong of Shannara* in “Indomitable,” the tale of Jair Ohmsford’s desperate quest to complete the destruction of the evil Ildatch . . . armed only with the magic of illusion.

Take some romance, throw in a little bit of historical fiction and add a dash of time travel and science fiction and you have the basis for this interesting story. … The premise for Thunder Mountain is intriguing and will appeal to fans of both historical and science fiction.

Hunter’s Home: Hunter’s Saga Books 1-3

As Alex Hunter watched in outrage through the scope of his rifle, as a large uniformed man threw his mother from porch of their homestead and into the yard. She landed hard, kicking up dust from the hard packed earth of the front yard. She gathered herself quickly as the man walked down the steps and stood over her. She made it to her knees, hands raised imploringly to the man. Outrage quickly became boiling anger as he watched his mom’s rough treatment. He could see her pleading with the man as he approached to stand over her, his face a mask of rage as he glared down. The man, the leader of this group at a guess, barked a few short angry seeming words down at his mother in reply. The next instant hot anger became sickening horror as the man quickly stepped back and drew his sidearm. With no hesitation the muzzle flashed and Alex heard the distant report of the chemical powered pistol that ended his mother’s life.
Horror became unthinking shock as his mother’s body, the center of Alex’s world, slumped to the ground like a puppet with it’s strings cut. This couldn’t be happening. “What? Why?” Alex’s head was spinning incoherently as the man holstered his weapon and started barking orders to his people. They immediately started to fan out to search the barn and the surrounding area.
Shock became stone cold rage. Alex watched the leader turn and start walking towards the house. Something cold and dark was swelling in Alex’s chest. The man was just crossing the threshold back into the house when his head exploded in a fine red mist. The cold eyes of a killer looked out at the world from Alex’s face as he jacked the next round into the chamber.
The first 3 books of Hunter’s Saga! Off planet invaders have attacked Alex Hunter’s world and killed his mother. Vengeance and a need for information drive him forward. Pursued across the landscape, Alex and Keisha Wilson are joined by a squad of the Planetary Security Force to confront this evil from the stars.
Alex and Keisha must also confront the growing feelings they have for each other before their emotions lead them into disaster.
