Two families are united—and torn apart—by the Civil War in these three dramatic novels by the #1 New York Times–bestselling master of the historical epic. In North and South, the first volume of John Jakes’s acclaimed and sweeping saga, a friendship is threatened by the divisions of the Civil War. In the years leading up to the Civil War, one enduring friendship embodies the tensions of a nation. Orry Main from South Carolina and George Hazard from Pennsylvania forge a lasting bond while training at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Together they fight in the Mexican-American War, but their closeness is tested as their regional politics diverge. As the first rounds are fired at Fort Sumter, Orry and George find themselves on different sides of the coming struggle. In John Jakes’s unmatched style, North and South launches a trilogy that captures the fierce passions of a country at the precipice of disaster. In Love and War, the Main and Hazard families clash on and off the Civil War’s battlefields as they grapple with the violent realities of a divided nation. With the Confederate and Union armies furiously fighting, the once-steadfast bond between the Main and Hazard families continues to be tested. From opposite sides of the conflict, they face heartache and triumph on the frontlines as they fight for the future of the nation and their loved ones. With his impeccable research and unfailing devotion to the historical record, John Jakes offers his most enthralling and enduring tale yet. In Heaven and Hell, the battle between the Mains and Hazards—and Confederate and Union armies—comes to a brilliant end. The last days of the Civil War bring no peace for the Main and Hazard families. As the Mains’ South smolders in the ruins of defeat, the Hazards’ North pushes blindly for relentless industrial progress. Both the nation and the families’ long-standing bond hover on the brink of destruction. In the series’ epic conclusion, Jakes expertly blends personal conflict with historical events, crafting a haunting page-turner about America’s constant change and unyielding hope. This “entertaining [and] authentic dramatization” (The New York Times) is a thrilling tale of shifting loyalties, set during one of the darkest moments in American history.

The Storm Lord Trilogy Box Set (The Complete Series Books 1-3): An Epic Paranormal Romance "When it is time for two souls to meet, there's not one single thing on earth which can prevent them from getting together, no matter where each are located, even if it comes in the form of a black panther that's 200 years old!" Book 1: The Flaming Blue Sword Angelica Thompson, an award-winning romance novelist, decides to end her turbulent relationship back home in Denver and heads to a secluded spot on the shores of Black Rock Cove in Oregon. Writer's block is preventing her from finishing her last novel in her paranormal romance series and is being pressured by her publisher, BeeBop Publishing, to finish by the end of the summer. She discovered the first night of her arrival how vividly her mind's thoughts and dreams came alive. Her imagination of a dead sea captain, a black panther pouncing on her for his evening meal, and falling to her death in a cove hundreds of feet below are only the beginning. Janie, a local real estate agent, awakens the young woman in her cottage. Was she awakened during a dream or… could it be real? Book 2: Nine Months Will Tell Continuation of the Storm Lord Trilogy in Chapter Two finds Angelica Thompson and Sheriff Kevin Connors expecting their first child. Her pregnancy comes as a surprise to her and Kevin because it is precisely nine months after their defeat of Ethan Knight in Chapter One of the Storm Lord Trilogy series. The question now that arises for the two love-birds is whether the Storm Lord lost his life in their final battle in the first of the series or did he, somehow, survive the epic encounter. Throughout the book, significant events taking place appear to threaten the life of Angel's first child. Is she too old, past the age of 39, to give birth? She wonders if it's just her age. Is there a problem with her child? Book 3: The Three Keys to Armageddon For this final chapter in the Storm Lord Trilogy Series, love must begin between a human and a supernatural being. This happens. The hero, the human character in this novel, is put into some kind of danger, where they come to realize they can overcome this danger either on their own or with the assistance of the supernatural love interest! Using the rich background of the spiritual world of Archangels Michael and his Sword of Angels and Gabriel with his trumpet of victory as the background, Sidney St. James' Storm Lord Trilogy Series pursues the return of Satan himself with a paranormal world of evil versus good filled with fascinating characters. The ever-moving series' sharp dialogue, highly original plotlines, and a stylistic flair are as rhythmic and vibrant as his earlier works. Through James' fertile imagination, these three novels in the series are provocative, confrontational, and contain highly ingenious twists and turn into the unexpected, but always with a healthy dose of humor, not to mention romance.

This digital boxset includes all three books in The Blood Dagger Series and contains over 1,400 pages of magic, heroism, and strong protagonists-perfect for fans of Mortal Instruments and the CW's Supernatural. THE OUTCASTS (Volume 1) Mystical relics. Powerful vampires. Strange allies. It's hell being a teenager, especially if you're being hunted by vampires. Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father. But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father's journal from under a floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England. The entries drew her to this quaint village, which Larna discovers isn't as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn't the only one trying to track her father down. Could this explain her father's disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad's master plan all along? THE WATCHERS (Volume 2) An upstart slayer. A clan of vampires. A world of trouble. Eighteen-year-old Corinth Taylor didn't sign up to become a Watcher—an elite warrior destined to restore balance to the human race—he was chosen. Corinth can barely control his own hormones . . . much less the deadly blade. And to make matters worse, his best friend, Larna, just so happens to be the very thing he's supposed to eliminate. But when vampires and slayer find a common enemy, Corinth knows it's his innate calling to hunt evil down. And evil has a name: Gabriel Stanton. The enigmatic vampire who escaped their capture, has plans for Corinth, Larna, and Alastair . . . and it's a threat they'll never see coming. When the line between good and evil gets crossed, devastating consequences start to happen. As Watcher and vampire worlds collide, Corinth must decide where to place his trust: with his old allies or his killer instincts. An upstart slayer. A clan of vampires. What could go wrong? It's only the end of the world. TREE OF SOULS (Volume 3) The first vampire. The last Nephilim. The end of a saga. Ever since his meeting with a group of all-powerful angels calling themselves the Grigori went awry, things aren't looking up for Corinth Taylor or for his best friend, Larna Collins. After Corinth was almost stabbed to death, Alastair Iszler, Corinth's brother-in-arms, heroically stepped in to save Corinth's life. Larna, still reeling after losing the love of her life, has only one mission in mind: kill the vampire who tortured Corinth. Sarah. But things aren't so cut and dry anymore when friends turn into enemies and enemies turn into friends. Trusting Gabriel Stanton, the leader of one of the most powerful vampire clans in the world, might just be enough to cause his downfall by her hands. Especially since she has the worst kind of history with him—the killing-your-father kind. Will Corinth make it through his transition to become a vampire? Will the Grigori's plan at world domination come into fruition? Can they pull together in time to stop the threat? Find out in the last and most action-packed novel in The Blood Dagger Series. It will not disappoint. A must-read from start to finish. Sink your teeth into a fun, fierce vampire series today.

Moving the Mountain is the first book in Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman's well known trilogy. Moving Mountain delivers Gilman's program for reforming society. She concentrates on measures of rationality and efficiency that could be instituted in her own time, largely with greater social cooperation - equal education and treatment for girls and boys, day-care centers for working women, and other issues still relevant a century later. Herland is a utopian novel. The book describes an isolated society composed entirely of women who reproduce via parthenogenesis. The result is an ideal social order, free of war, conflict and domination. The story is told from the perspective of Van Jennings, a student of sociology who, along with two friends, Terry O. Nicholson and Jeff Margrave, forms an expedition party to explore an area of unchartered land where it is rumored lives a society consisting entirely of women. The three friends do not really believe the rumors as they are unable to conceive of how human reproduction could occur without males. The men speculate about what a society of women would be like, each guessing differently based on the stereotype of women which he holds most dear ... With Her in Ourland is the third book in Charlotte Perkins Gilman's utopian trilogy which begins where Moving the Mountain and Herland left off. Gilman masterfully compares our real modern male dominated WORLD with an imaginary perfect society comprised of only woman.

Showing its development from Beowulf to Blake, the author describes English fantasy's modern growth through secondary world, metaphysical, emotive, comic, subversive, and children's fantasy. In them all England has led the world, with authors as different as Chaucer, Lewis Carroll, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Salman Rushdie.

The artist Francis Bacon (1909-1992) and the writer Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) both convey in their work a sense of foreboding and confinement in bleak, ritualistic spaces. This book identifies many similarities between the spaces and activities they evoke and the initiatory practices of fraternal orders and secret societies that were an integral part of the social landscape of the Ireland experienced by both men during childhood. Many of these Irish societies modelled their ritual structures and symbolism on the Masonic Order. Freemasons use the term 'spurious Freemasonry' to designate those rituals not sanctioned by the Grand Lodge. The Masonic author Albert Mackey argues that the spurious forms were those derived from the various cult practices of the classical world and describes these initiatory practices as 'a course of severe and arduous trials'. This reading of Bacon's and Beckett's work draws on theories of trauma to suggest that there may be a disturbing link between Bacon's stark imagery, Beckett's obscure performances and the unofficial use of Masonic rites.
