The Election by Darryl Greer 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

One body was not supposed to be uncovered -- but it was -- and the silent shadows it lets loose haunt the past, the present and, unless one man prevails, they will haunt the future too. Darryl Greer takes the reader from New Guinea's Kokoda Track where a young digger dies an agonising death to present day Australia where, in one year, the nation is threatened by virulent anarchy and by the greed and arrogance of a secret organisation. There are murders and the echoes of old wartime atrocities, a search for evidence, assassinations and dead people who torment the living as the hero, Michael Takada, is drawn even further into a world of darkness and conspiracy. The force he needs to confront is cunning and evil... and wants Michael for itself. But, if he does not act against what resides in the shadows, more innocents will be murdered. The catch -- and there's always a catch -- is that Michael's own heritage could be his downfall. Greer has his hands full as he gives us themes of disclosure and redemption, good versus evil, order versus anarchy, with a liberal dosing of most of the deadly sins and a few of the mildly toxic ones on full display. The Election is no humdrum, formulaic whodunit. It is an authentic gut-wrenching, page-turning, corpse-mouldering, firestorm-igniting, corruption-revealing, killer-rampaging masterpiece.

The Skipton Haunting: Curse of the Red Ribbon Witch by Andrew John Bell (Independant Publisher) 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Once connected, never can a bond be broken... Relocating from the quiet suburbs of London to the industrial northern town of Newton Escomb, to a small cul-de-sac there named Skipton Road, was already a challenge in itself for Christopher Joyce and his family -- yet, they had no idea of what malevolent horrors awaited them there. Unbeknown to them, the Joyce's new home bore a terrible and bloody past. It was plagued by wicked entities, twisted deeds, death, and witchcraft. Although, not all was as it seemed. Christopher was a firm sceptic of anything supernatural, as was his wife, Amy, but that would soon change after two demonic beings made their presences and sordid intentions known through many terrifying apparitions and vivid nightmares. Already held in a vulnerable state of mind, Amy gradually succumbed to the powerful influence of these dark spirits, namely a fallen witch who possessed a desperate thirst for vengeance against men -- Sabina. As their connection grew, the bond between Amy and Sabina, Christopher was left with little choice but to act. After all, he had his and Amy's young children to protect as well. Through the help of strangers and past acquaintances of Skipton Road, Christopher steadily became obsessed with discovering the truth behind what now haunted his family. However, there lurked an even greater darkness within the shadows -- Baal, an ancient demon -- Sabina's master. The Joyce family had unwittingly found themselves embroiled in a battle between the warring spirits, and it would change their lives forever. Sequel to 'The Skipton Haunting: Tale of the Red Ribbon Witch', but can also be read as a stand-alone novel. The demonic entities entailed are based on an actual haunting the author and his family experienced in 2016. Names of characters and certain places have been changed to help protect identities of those involved.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (Open Road Media) 4.3 Stars (1,050 Review)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

The grand epic set during Napoleon's invasion of Russia: a vividly detailed view of nineteenth-century Russian life by the author of Anna Karenina. Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written, War and Peace is Leo Tolstoy's magnum opus, a groundbreaking work of literary realism, and a psychologically acute examination of Tsarist society in the Napoleonic Era. The narrative follows the fates, fortunes, loves, and betrayals of five aristocratic Russian families from an elegant soirée in 1805 Saint Petersburg to the abandoned and burning Moscow of 1812. With a panoramic cast of characters, including peasants, soldiers, nobles, and historical figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Mikhail Kutuzov, Tolstoy presents a hugely ambitious portrait of the human condition. First published in 1865, this edition of War and Peace was translated into English by Louise and Alymer Maude

The Ansgar Treasury: A Windflower Saga Collection by Aleksandra Layland 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

Reviewed by BlueInk in BookList Magazine Sep 2017 as a self-published book recommended for librarians to add to their collections, with equal praise for the sequels: The Wisdom and Valor Treasury and The Far Haven Treasury. The Ansgar Treasury is the first part of an epic fantasy trilogy called the Windflower Saga, set in a medieval-like world. A hundred years after the end of the colonial wars, Kimbria is finally a unified kingdom. A young man named Ansgar, dressed only in the robe of a monk, wanders alone in the southern Wastelands, searching for the remnants of an indigenous people, called the Kimbrii, who are on the brink of extinction following years of living under harsh post-colonial laws intended to prevent their prosperity as a people. He's come to help them, but instead finds himself near death, until he opens his eyes and sees her... a woman named Keholani, unlike any he's ever seen before... a clan chief and the future leader of her people. She'll save him from death and quietly captivate his heart. In a tender romance story, he'll defy the conventions of the time and marry her, revealing his true identity, and founding a family that will change the future of Kimbria forever. This omnibus edition includes the epic fantasy novel "Ansgar: The Struggle of a People. The Triumph of the Heart." (Part I of The Windflower Saga trilogy) and three related novellas: "The Feathered Crown," "Far Endeavor," and "Three Brothers of Ansgar." "The Feathered Crown" tells the story of the man who raised Keholani from the time she was eight years old: her uncle, the High Chief Kahutane. How did he become the wise and insightful leader who befriends Ansgar and helps to guide his people to prosperity? And how did he, who never expected to do so, come to wear the feathered crown? "Far Endeavor" primarily tells the story of Ansgar's and Keholani's eldest son, Lord Branimir Rongo, who would later be known simply as Brother Branimir. Born to wealth and nobility, he seeks only ...

Cold Tears A woman as deep in despair as a person can be. Is it unbearable grief or unbearable guilt? A child is missing, a baby taken away in the middle of the night. It's a life-shattering tragedy, but no one seems to care. Is it because the grieving mother is a "lowlife druggie," as the chief investigator maintains? Or is there another reason the case is given short shrift by the "good people" of James Mill? Richard Carter, an ex-Marine suffering PTSD who has been spared prosecution for felony homicide only by a governor's pardon, consents to help the grieving mother, Molly. In doing so, he ignores the pleading of his wife, Jill, who begs him to disengage from the situation which she sees as a threat to his wounded psyche. Will the truth, if and when he finds it, save or destroy the woman who sees Richard as her "godsend?" What he is doing may be futile as well as unwise. It may, in fact, plunge him into clinical depression and wreck his marriage. He has given his word to Molly, but Jill is his life. What will the truth do to them all? And what are "cold tears"?

A Buddhist Love Story by Bobby Hudson 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

A few years ago I wrote a novel entitled "A Buddhist Love Story," which is the fictional account of Ron Johnson's adventure into Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhist practice. As Ron becomes a practitioner of Nichiren Buddhism, he revolutionizes his life. Moreover, Ron falls madly in love with Denise Sanford, the woman who introduces him to Nichiren Buddhism. A problem arises when Denise finds out something dark and disturbing about Ron's life that he has managed to keep secret from her. The question is whether or not Denise's revelation about Ron will doom any potential romance between Ron and Denise or will Ron be able to use Nichiren Buddhism to change his fundamental darkness and use it to benefit his relationship with Denise. This Buddhist philosophy was developed in Japan by a13th century monk named Nichiren Daishonin. Nichiren discovered by the very act of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo a person could reach a state of enlightenment or absolute happiness. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo translates to "devotion of the Mystic Law of cause and effect through the Buddhist teachings." Although "A Buddhist Love Story" is a fictional story, the novel's true intent is to give the reader an accurate and very real account of what it means to practice Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism. Since many Americans know little about Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist practice, I chose to provide readers with relative information about this Buddhism in an entertaining way. While being invested in Ron's story, the reader is able to learn how to practice Nichiren Buddhism and learn about the tremendous positive impact Nichiren Buddhism can have on a person's life. Therefore, "A Buddhist Love Story" can actually be used as a reference guide to practicing Nichiren Buddhism. Nichiren Buddhism is not a cult. In fact, Nichiren Buddhism advocates diversity and free thinking. No one in the Soka Gakkai International, which is the lay organization for Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist practice, ever tells anyone how they ...

THE IMPRESSIONIST OF PROVENCE by Ray Drayton 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

1939-1945: The world was plunged into global conflict for the second time in recent history. The giant juggernaut of the Swastika swept across Europe with a vengeance to divide and conquer. Provence, like the rest of France was put to the sword of Nazi Ideology. French civilians stoically continued living their lives as they had for centuries, albeit on a day to day basis. The same question remained on every Frenchman's lips - surely this cannot be happening?? But it is. That is the shocking reality... Professor Baptiste Dubois was one such man. He relinquished his post as a lecturer at The Sorbonne in Paris. Like the great masters of French Impressionist Art, he heeded the inner call to imbibe in the vibrant light and colour harmonies which represent Provence. This unique region in the south of France possessed a magic which had mysteriously attracted artists since the post Renaissance Period. Provence lured people of similar ilk to partake in creating the magic their inner eye perceived directly onto canvas. The heart saw what the physical eye could not see. The 'New Age' technique of Impressionist art form was born. Baptiste's intended sojourn to join his family living in Provence and practice his art skills in particular, was thrust to one side when the totally unexpected happened. The outbreak of war for the second time that century... The French government departed Paris 10th June 1940. German forces occupied Paris four days later. The French Capital had fallen. The Dubois family in idyllic Provence went about their daily lives seemingly oblivious to what had happened in the north of France. The brutal truth became apparent one night in 1944 when a RAF heavy bomber ditched in the Rhone River adjacent to the ancient Roman city of Arles, close by where they lived. Under threat of death by their German occupiers if they were caught, the two surviving members of the Dubois family hid the injured pilot from the dreaded Gestapo. Baptiste and his granddaughter, ...

In Search of Lost Time [volumes 1 to 7] by Marcel Proust (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.3 Stars (192 Reviews)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

On the surface a traditional Bildungsroman describing the narrator's journey of self-discovery, this huge and complex book is also a panoramic and richly comic portrait of France in the author's lifetime, and a profound meditation on the nature of art, love, time, memory and death. But for most readers it is the characters of the novel who loom the largest: Swann and Odette, Monsieur de Charlus, Morel, the Duchesse de Guermantes, Françoise, Saint-Loup and so many others -- Giants, as the author calls them, immersed in Time. In Search of Lost Time is a novel in seven volumes. The novel began to take shape in 1909. Proust continued to work on it until his final illness in the autumn of 1922 forced him to break off. Proust established the structure early on, but even after volumes were initially finished he kept adding new material, and edited one volume after another for publication. The last three of the seven volumes contain oversights and fragmentary or unpolished passages as they existed in draft form at the death of the author; the publication of these parts was overseen by his brother Robert. "In Search of Lost Time" is widely recognized as the major novel of the twentieth century. -- Harold Bloom At once the last great classic of French epic prose tradition and the towering precursor of the "nouveau roman". -- Bengt Holmqvist I am in a state of amazement; as if a miracle were being done before my eyes... Proust so titillates my own desire for expression that I can hardly set out the sentence. Oh if I could write like that! -- Virginia Woolf The greatest fiction to date. -- W. Somerset Maugham Proust is the greatest novelist of the 20th century. -- Graham Greene Our second greatest novel after "War and Peace". -- E. M. Forster

Pineapple Lies: A Pineapple Port Mystery: Book One (Pineapple Port Mysteries 1) by Amy Vansant 4.4 Stars (1,008 Review)    Price verified 28 minutes ago

Pineapple Port Mysteries by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Amy Vansant, is a funny, clean and gore-free small-town, female amateur sleuth series, but with all the pulse-pounding excitement of a detective thriller. Book #1 of the binge-worthy series, Pineapple Lies, is a twisty puzzler... Solve the mystery before you die laughing! It's bad enough Charlotte Morgan found a body buried in her back yard -- when she discovers the bones belong to the long-missing mom of the hottest guy in town, she knows she's just made the world's worst first impression. Determined to solve the crime, the 26-year-old becomes an amateur sleuth... even though, after being raised in a 55-plus Florida retirement community, golf-cart racing's usually about as exciting as life gets. Quips get flung and puns get slung, making for a hilarious read, but even better, Pineapple Port's just a place you want to hang out. The dialog crackles---you'll hear the voices of your own nutty friends and relatives in every conversation. Charlotte's a unique female protagonist, being the only chick, as a friend observes, in a roomful of hens, but Pineapple Port is a wonderful character in itself, possessing its own exotic customs and quirks. People have nicknames like Jenny Teacup (because she collects tea sets), exercise comes in the form of water aerobics, and Poolside Breakfast is a big social event. But beneath this typical Florida retirement community, trouble brews... Throughout the series, you find serial killers, crazy ex-girlfriends, loving dogs, romance, government operatives, FBI agents, danger... and a cast of characters almost as funny as they are loving, supportive and brave. The series appeals to men and women. If Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and the Golden Girls had a baby, it would be the Pineapple Port series! If you like Jana Deleon, Angie Fox, Leslie Langtry, Susan M. Boyer, Gina-LaManna, Julie Smith or any funny, action-packed mystery, you're about to ...

Don't date your bodyguard. It was the one rule he had to break. Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible -- the twenty-two-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. By noon, lunch can turn into a mob of screaming fans. By two, his face is all over the internet. Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. He is certified American royalty. When he's assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who's known for "going rogue" in the security team -- and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies. Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene has one job: protect Maximoff Hale. Flirting, dating, and hot sex falls far, far out of the boundary of his bodyguard duties and into "termination" territory. But when feelings surface, protecting the sexy-as-sin, stubborn celebrity becomes increasingly complicated. Together, boundaries blur, and being exposed could mean catastrophic consequences for both. Damaged Like Us is the first book in the Like Us series and can be read and enjoyed without reading any of Krista & Becca's other novels.

In Honor Bound (The Chastelayne Trilogy Book 1) by DeAnna Julie Dodson 4.3 Stars (80 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

His father will stop at nothing to keep the royal bloodline "pure" --even murder. But his sins have nearly destroyed Prince Philip and the future of his reign. Forced into a political marriage, Philip tells his bride, "I will not lie to you, I will not be unfaithful to you, and I will not love you. My heart is pledged to another and I am not a man to break an oath." His one true love is a lowly serving girl. When Philip refuses to set her aside in order to form a politically beneficial marriage, his father has the girl tried on false charges and executed. He then forces Philip to marry the beautiful and nobly born Lady Rosalynde. Devastated and embittered by his loss and his father's betrayal, Philip is determined to never love again... not his father, not his wife, not his God. Although Rosalynde adores him, he withholds his heart from her, refusing to let even death end his devotion to the love he lost. Despite his coldness towards her, Rosalynde is determined to love him and teach him to love her -- as determined as the God he has turned his back on. As civil war rages throughout the realm, Philip faces a greater struggle within himself. Will he open his heart to love again or let his pride destroy him and his kingdom?

Droll Stories by Honore de Balzac (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

From the great French novelist comes this long-unavailable collection of tales in the tradition of Boccaccio's Decameron. Balzac's Contes Drolatiques, or Droll Stories, were originally published in three volumes in the 1830s. Set in medieval Europe, these stories were Balzac's attempt to write in the great tradition of Rabelais and Boccaccio, to render the Middle Ages with a touch of raunchy humor, and to provide a delightful portrait of medieval France. Balzac took the old themes that had delighted his ancestors—the tales of faithless wives and confiding husbands, of monks incredibly endowed for amorous athleticism, of lusty wenches and adventurous lads, and of great bouts of eating and drinking. Droll Stories has always been an essential part of Balzac's work when published in French, but it has been excluded from the definitive English editions. This book presents all three volumes of this classic and enduring work. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

A Tale of Fengado by Dr Arun Gadre 2.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 16 hours ago

I read the quote by a renowned social anthropologist Dr Margaret Mead. When a reporter asked her, "When do you declare that human civilization has started at this particular point while excavating?" Her answer was a typical one like roads, utensils, constructions etc. She declared "when I found a healed femur bone, I declare that the human civilization has started here!" That exceptional answer by Dr. Margaret Mead enthralled me! This answer implies that thousands of years back when man was living in jungles, in his primitive days, some person had actually lifted a wounded person to the cave, hunted and fed that wounded person for at least six months! I started wondering, who this person was? How did he take a stand against routinely accepted norm of leaving an injured mate behind to die? What turmoil had he gone through? How had he communicated his anguish to the others living with him when language was primitive? What caused him to do this strange and unique thing in the first place? How did he sustain the brutal pressures and isolation that came along with his strange decision? Emerged this saga of that first ever 'human being' (in cultural sense) whom I named 'Fengado'. This novel is with some unique characteristics. Space across the continents, time stretching thousands of years and different civilizations have condensed into a place and time frame of this novel. The sentences, narrative are short, crisp and are without any grammar. The nouns are verbs. A rhythm and flow of the narrative has its umbilical cord embedded in the time zone of primitive civilization. The characters are named after their physical appearance. In the process the novel becomes sort of a Pre-historical and a Pre-social one. It becomes a sort of poetic truth, something that could be interpreted as a distinct, separate and parallel to a reality. This novel helps readers to enter an entirely different universe and helps her to understand the reality of her own human-ness with a altogether ...
