Thousands of years ago the elves were enslaved by the Wytch Lords. Murdered in their thousands, worked to death in slave gangs and divided against themselves, the wounds inflicted by man run deep - and elves have very long memories. Two of them - Auum and Takaar - led the rise against their enslavers, and united their people against men in order to free their nation. Now Calaius is at peace ... but that doesn't mean their nation is safe. Men need their help. The Wytch Lords have rallied, men's magic has grown more powerful, and their politics have become altogether more dangerous. Especially now: one of the mages has created a spell, called Dawnthief, which has the potential to destroy all living things on the planet. All four magical colleges are fighting to seize it and, in the background, the Wytch Lords have schemes of their own. Schemes which involve crushing the elven nation for good. Whoever seizes the spell, it places the elves in tremendous danger. But can Auum and Takaar overcome their differences and work together to save Calaius? And even if they can, is it not already too late ... ? Find out more on his website, www.jamesbarclay.com, or you can follow @barculator on Twitter.

An elf living in Santa'¬"s Workshop'¬ ;recently retired from productive service at the venerable age of twelve to become a full-time sculptor'¬ ;lands a contract with Workshop'¬"s highest authority to create a statue honoring their long-absent founder and patron saint, Santa Claus.Unfortunately this elf, who wishes to remain anonymous, doesn'¬"t believe in Santa Claus. When X carves a controversial monument that ostensibly exalts but slyly defames both Claus and Workshop government she meets Tchotchke, a young orphan with a talent for finding whatever he looks for. Tchotchke'¬"s connections to a heretical underground organization, the Anti-Claus Movement, allow Movement members to persuade X to search throughout the arctic iceberg cavern for proof of Santa Claus'¬"s death in the hope of inspiring a popular uprising. What she uncovers with Tchotchke'¬"s assistance, however, is evidence of an even deeper conspiracy behind Claus'¬"s historical absence. With both Workshop authorities and the heretics at their heels, X and Tchotchke escape Workshop'¬"s floating confines and use Tchotchke'¬"s talent to gather evidence of Santa Claus'¬"s whereabouts at locations scattered across Europe and North America. On the way they face the dreaded Krampus in a bar, learn of Claus'¬"s origins as a young Catholic bishop, get worshipped by a tribe of elves posing as cats, and unwittingly foment an elfin revolution in an urban mall that threatens to tear apart not only an entire society, but also their friendship. Ultimately, the answers that X discovers in her search for the secret of Santa Claus only lead to even more difficult questions as her swiftly approaching demise forces her to choose between life or the one elf she can'¬"t imagine life without.

Tragic Shores A Memoir of Dark Travel

Tragic Shores  A Memoir of Dark Travel

'I have come to thank dark places for the light they bring to life.' Thomas Cook has always been drawn to dark places, for the powerful emotions they evoke and for what we can learn from them. These lessons are often unexpected and sometimes profoundly intimate, but they are never straightforward. With his wife and daughter, Cook travels across the globe in search of darkness - from Lourdes to Ghana, from San Francisco to Verdun, from the monumental, mechanised horror of Auschwitz to the intimate personal grief of a shrine to dead infants in Kamukura, Japan. Along the way he reflects on what these sites may teach us, not only about human history, but about our own personal histories. During the course of a lifetime of traveling to some of earth's most tragic shores, from the leper colony on Molokai to ground zero at Hiroshima, he finds not darkness alone, but a light that can illuminate the darkness within each of us. Written in vivid prose, this is at once a personal memoir of exploration (both external and internal), and a strangely heartening look at the radiance that may be found at the very heart of darkness. 'A fascinating, troubling memoir from a fine writer' Mick Herron

Will Corot succeed in his evil plan to annihilate the Faeltheon, or will the island sanctuary truly become the long-desired Elvenhome?

It began with Eragon . . . It ends with Inheritance, book four in the Inheritance Series. Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now, the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still the real battle lies ahead: they must confront King Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they can’t, no one can. There will be no second chances. The Rider and his dragon have come farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost? Featuring spectacular artwork by cult artist John Jude Palencar, this stunning book brings the bestselling Inheritance cycle to a breathtaking conclusion.

In this action-filled conclusion to the Elf Realm trilogy, Matt, Tuava-Li, and Tomtar must reach the fabled elfin city of Hunaland at the North Pole. There they will plant the seed that will cause the Tree of Adri to grow anew and strengthen the invisible walls that separate the elfin world from the human. Meanwhile, Jardaine and Nick the troll have tricked Becky into joining them to supposedly rescue Matt from danger. In reality they wish to plant the Seed of Adri themselves, sacrifice Becky, and claim the glory and rewards from the elfin gods. It is a fast-paced race to get to the North Pole first and plant the seed, but unexpected horrors await whoever journeys beyond the Gates of Vattar, where the fading tree grows and where the new seed must be relinquished. Who will get there first? Readers will eagerly seek to discover if Matt and Becky save the world from impending doom and destruction and forever separate the human world from the elf realm for the safety of them all.

More games, crafts and skills Forest School style, building on the success of Play the Forest School Way. This book is organized by season to encourage kids to get outdoors come rain, shine or snow! Following on from the bestselling Play the Forest School Way, here is a brilliant selection of brand-new games, crafts and activities to get kids developing new skills and exploring the natural world all year round. Structured around the four seasons of the year, each chapter is packed full of step-by-step Forest School games and activities that harmonize with the weather and what’s happening in nature at that time of year, with a nod to seasonal festivals such as Easter and Christmas. In spring, for example, you could make a mud birthday cake to celebrate Earth Day on 22 April, or (inspired by bird song) craft sistrums from sticks and bottle tops, or make a clay hare and enjoy dandelion tea and a chocolate egg hunt at a spring day out. At Forest School, children return to the same location again and again, building a lasting connection with a specific part of the natural world, and this book in its year-round approach will bring this aspect of Forest School play to the fore. Each of the four seasonal chapters includes a description of an extended session (combining active and quieter activities plus, for some, an idea for foraging/cooking) to guide Forest School leaders planning themed days and parents looking for party inspiration or nature days out. The Forest School ethos of nature-based play and learning that encourages children to develop confidence, self-esteem and emotional intelligence is exactly what’s needed in an era when childhood problems such as obesity and anxiety are on the rise. Woven through the year are stories from the authors’ own Forest School classes, as they make a passionate case for the importance of ensuring children’s access to nature and the incredible benefits they will gain from being outside, even in the heart of a city.
