Robert is a young missionary who is stranded in a seedy port in the East Indies just before 1900. There he faces pirates, unscrupulous and despotic local authorities, crooked European expatriates, conspiracy, and the temptations of the flesh. He fights snake infested jungles, shark infested seas, and an island of dragon-like monsters. Most of all he is tried by the conduct and actions of an old missionary who has compromised his beliefs and sullied his faith. But Robert also encounters a fragilely beautiful girl with whom he falls deeply in love in a bittersweet and doomed romance. As a small boy, his parents are killed when the train they are riding on plunges into the dark waters of the River Tay in the collapse of the Tay Bridge. He is so young that they are only a distant and fond memory. He is raised by his Aunt Maisie a good and industrious older lady. Aunt Maisie is a deeply religious woman who very much admires her brother and his wife who are missionaries. In periodic visits home they bring glowing reports of their experiences in their foreign missionary field. And so she raises Robert to have the singular ambition of becoming a missionary when he is old enough. The death of his elderly aunt only increases his desire to become a foreign missionary in order to not only fulfill his own ambition but to honor the memory of his aunt. He approaches the various missionary societies so prevalent in Britain back in those days, only to be turned away because he is not married. Without formal religious training and lacking any personal funds, he comes upon what he naively believes to be the perfect solution. He will become a medical missionary. That way he can heal both the bodies and the souls of those he will serve. But this is also a problem because he lacks the money for formal medical training. So Robert apprentices himself to an older doctor who treats many of the most indigent and poor of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. After four years of working under Dr. Simpson, and living with him and his daughter, Marjorie, Robert announces his intention to go to the South Pacific as a medical missionary. Despite having no funding he is sure that he can be successful, so the day comes when he says goodbye to a sad Dr. Simpson and his tearful daughter. When the ship Robert is travelling on is forced to stop in the bay of a small port in the East Indies more than a thousand miles from Australia's northern coast, he is talked into going ashore by the ship's little cockney steward. The ship's second officer tries to talk him out of it. He should have listened, because in a rundown saloon that the steward lures him into he runs afoul of a pirate named Perigoso. Set adrift in the shark-infested South China Seas by the enraged pirate, he suffers from the burning sun, attacks by sharks, and hunger and thirst. He reaches land weak and desperate and believing that death is imminent, only to face a terrifying night in a jungle filled with venomous snakes, poisonous insects, and fierce and voracious animals. Although he survives those terrors his troubles and the threats to his very existence are only beginning. Come join Robert in his fight against evil men and ravenous monsters on the Island of Dragons.

I was there the day the Sheltering Stone fell. The day an ancient curse was unleashed and the Ninth Isle, the final refuge of dragons, was swallowed up by the angry ocean. For centuries my people, the winged dragonkind, have protected the dragons, bonding with them and sharing the skies together. Now both races face extinction. I made it happen. I meddled with the magic that doomed my home island. And now that magic consumes me. But it isn't too late. If I can learn to control the power that has invaded me I might survive long enough to find the lost mountain legend says can restore the legacy of my people. But greedy pirates and cruel Gold Ship Voyagers bar my way. And my only ally on this desperate quest is a beast some call the mad dragon-an eater of men. Can I bend both the dragon and my newfound powers to my will before time runs out? Or will the last hope of dragons, the legacy of a fierce race, die with me?

Out in the Atlantic Ocean, almost due west of the Pillars of Hercules, lie the Azore Islands. It is just possible that the Azores are all that remain of the fabled, ancient city of Atlantis; for how else would such a small chain of islands end up with such a rich tapestry of folklore and fairy tales. It is here that Elsie Spicer Eells found these tales and recorded them for us to enjoy. In this volume of 34 illustrated children’s stories you will find tales like: Princess Bluegreen of the Seven Cities, The Islands of Flowers, Why Dogs Sniff, The Princess Who Lost Her Rings, The Master Of Magic, St. Anthony's Godchild, The Seven Enchanted Princes and many more. These stories will not be found in any traditional western fairy tale books. This makes these stories unique which will take children, and lovers of folklore, on a journey as yet untrodden by the majority. So, we invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Antlantean fairy culture, not seen in print for almost a century; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear. ---------------------------- KEYWORDS/TAGS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, children’s stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, Princess bluegreen of the seven cities, islands of flowers, Why dogs sniff, Longstaff, pinepuller, rockheaver, table, sifter pinchers, Linda branca and her mask, Fresh figs, Peter-of-the-pigs, princess who lost her rings, master of magic, St. Anthony's godchild, Trouble, young, little maid who was wise, Manoel littlebean, necklace of pearls, daughter of the king of naples, Maria-of-the-forest, seven enchanted princes, listening king, José the beast slayer, princess of the lost island, Why the alvéloa bird received a blessing, Why the codorniz bird received a curse, Outside the door like the mother of st.

On the brink of war, the fates of both Artimé and Quill are at stake in book six of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.” Alex and Aaron Stowe are at a crossroads. Everything Aaron has worked so hard to build in Quill has crumbled. Fallen from the height of power and influence and left for dead in a foreign place, Aaron has lost everything, and now he must humbly beg for food from those who saved his life. In Artimé, Alex chooses his people over his brother and abandons his search for Aaron, closing the door on that relationship forever. The Artimeans need his focus now more than ever as they face the terrifying power of a new enemy who has taken control of Quill—the notoriously evil Gondoleery Rattrapp. Desperate to stop her, Alex embarks on a risky mission to enlist help from an unlikely ally, and along the way he’s determined to rescue a lone sailor from monstrous beasts with mysterious origins—a sailor who just might show Alex a different world. As he prepares for an epic war with all of Quill and Artime hanging in the balance, Alex must place his faith in a reckless plan...and hope that he and all of his friends make it through alive.
