NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES FROM NETFLIX Babylon's Ashes is the sixth book in the New York Times bestselling Expanse series. The Free Navy - a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships - has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them. James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network. But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun. As the chaos grows, an alien mystery deepens. Pirate fleets, mutiny and betrayal may be the least of the Rocinante's problems. And in the uncanny spaces past the ring gates, the choices of a few damaged and desperate people may determine the fate of more than just humanity. The Expanse series has sold over two million copies worldwide and is now a major television series.

For generations, the solar system - Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt - was humanity's great frontier. Until now. The alien artefact working through its program under the clouds of Venus has emerged to build a massive structure outside the orbit of Uranus: a gate that leads into a starless dark. Jim Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are part of a vast flotilla of scientific and military ships going out to examine the artefact. But behind the scenes, a complex plot is unfolding, with the destruction of Holden at its core. As the emissaries of the human race try to find whether the gate is an opportunity or a threat, the greatest danger is the one they brought with them.

Before this world is made into a virtual utopia it’s destined to be destroyed by fire; But Christians won’t have to go through those fiery days that shall burn as an oven, as recorded in Malachi 4; And our Heavens won’t even allow their tears to be shed, as thirsty grounds below swiftly spread everywhere, while turning our planet into a giant dust bowl. Then our earth’s crust will resonate from the resounding of moving mantle, that shall quickly waste all of the cities of a doomed race that foolishly followed after the ways of Babylon. And the electrical explosions of lightening crackles will then suddenly detonate within our expanse like unstable chemicals, that reacts ferociously with non compatible elements. Even our continental shelves shall also be rearranged in our new earth, when the underlying strata is moved miles out of it’s place by gargantuan earthquakes. Then our abandoned coastlines will be rapidly betrayed by waters, that leave real quick without any word. And within all areas of the circle of our earth new dry land shall suddenly arise to contend with bloody looking muck that shall be thrown up during volcanic conniptions. For our former forgotten seas will be swiftly transformed from eruptions, while they abruptly become parched badlands of the driest thirsty kind. And those bone dry lands will suddenly be floating upon steaming lava as it cools. Then the deepest gorges will be unexpectedly filled in by our ever shaking earth. At that point, our entire firmament will also be enshrouded with some real dusty ashes, while speedily producing real stagnant blackened clouds, that will be unable to empty themselves, due to the supernatural restraints that God shall place upon them. Furthermore, all unprotected life will then hastily cease, during those most foreboding, and darkest hours of God’s very worst fury; For all of the past vegetation of our greenest plains will then abruptly curl up into little balls, while quickly perishing very quick beneath the scorching rays of our sun that has gone more than crazy. And our planet will then immediately be stripped naked due to all of those combined happenings, that will rapidly lead to untold destruction. But after all those above horrid things have finally come to pass, only at that point shall our earth soon arise and shine, with our God’s most loving restoration. And the mortal remnant of our great tribulation era shall then always live together with immortal resurrected people, that shall no longer be male or female. And all of our Lord's elect shall then live evermore upon a blessed remade world, that will never pass away.

The Pimlico Dictionary of Classical Mythologies is a unique work of reference which breaks new ground by treating for the first time the classical mythologies of the Old World as a whole. Never before have the mythologies of Greece, Rome, Persia, India and China been encompassed in a single volume, despite the fact that the first four have much in common through their Indo-European ancestry. Arthur Cotterell shows how much more can be understood about 'classical mythology' by comparison and contrast of its five major traditions. Another key aspect of The Pimlico Dictionary of Classical Mythologies is that the myths are not simply recounted; their least accessible features are helpfully interpreted by reference to the culture in which they arose. Thus, for example, the profound influence of the Iranian prophet Zoroaster's thinking on Persian mythology is made clear, along with the far-reaching consequences its adoption would later have for Christian thought. The Pimlico Dictionary of Classical Mythologies also includes over two hundred original illustrations, which have been specially commissioned in order to reveal how gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, sages, villains and demons were actually envisaged during the classical period. Taken together with the well-devised entries and the informative introduction, these unusual illustrations make The Pimlico Dictionary of Classical Mythologies an indispensable handbook for both students and the general reader.
