A new epic saga begins... Jael Furyck has had a sword in her hand since she was 10-years-old. Her freedom was assured by her father, King Ranuf of Brekka, but he is dead, his crown stolen by his ambitious brother, Lothar, who has married her off and taken her away from everything she loves: her home, her family, and Aleksander Lehr, her childhood friend and lover. Married her off to the King of Oss’ drunken son and heir, Eadmund Skalleson. Eadmund is a ruined shell of a man, broken since the death of his wife seven years before, but now he must find a way to regain his father’s trust, and quickly, before he brings back his dangerous and vengeful brother, Ivaar, to replace him. To do that Eadmund is going to need Jael’s help, but helping him is the last thing on her mind. Jael is furious and determined to ignore her new husband, and instead fight and claw her way back to Brekka, and the life that once belonged to her. But she has a habit of making enemies, and there is more than one person on the island of Oss plotting to destroy her. Jael’s grandmother, Edela, a Tuuran dreamer, sees another threat to her safety; an old, evil darkness that is stalking her on Oss. A girl with a scorched face and an ominous voice haunts her dreams, warning her of horrors to come. She must race to Tuura with Aleksander’s help, to uncover the answers to her mysterious visions, to thread together all the clues, before it’s too late. But in Tuura, they like to keep their secrets hidden, and Jael Furyck and her importance to all the kingdoms of Osterland is their most closely guarded secret of all. The Tuuran elders will stop at nothing to protect the prophecy... Winter’s Fury weaves together a rich tapestry of characters and kingdoms, swords and warriors, dark magic and mystery, which will leave you wanting more.

The Northmenâe(tm)s Fury tells the Viking story, from the first pinprick raids of the eighth century to the great armies that left their Scandinavian homelands to conquer larger parts of France, Britain and Ireland. It recounts the epic voyages that took them across the Atlantic to the icy fjords of Greenland and to North America over four centuries before Columbus and east to the great rivers of Russia and the riches of the Byzantine empire. One summerâe(tm)s day in 793, death arrived from the sea. The raiders who sacked the island monastery of Lindisfarne were the first Vikings, sea-borne attackers who brought two centuries of terror to northern Europe. Before long the sight of their dragon-prowed longships and the very name of Viking gave rise to fear and dread, so much so that monks were reputed to pray each night for delivery from âe~the Northmenâe(tm)s Furyâe(tm). Yet for all their reputation as bloodthirsty warriors, the Vikings possessed a sophisticated culture that produced art of great beauty, literature of abiding power and kingdoms of surprising endurance. The Northmenâe(tm)s Fury describes how and why a region at the edge of Europe came to dominate and to terrorise much of the rest of the continent for nearly three centuries and how, in the end, the coming of Christianity and the growing power of kings tempered the Viking ferocity and stemmed the tide of raids. It relates the astonishing achievement of the Vikings in forging far-flung empires whose sinews were the sea and whose arteries were not roads but maritime trading routes. The blood of the Vikings runs in millions of veins in Europe and the Americas and the tale of their conquests, explorations and achievements continues to inspire people around the world.

This devastating book illuminates America's gun culture -- its manufacturers, dealers, buffs, and propagandists -- but also offers concrete solutions to our national epidemic of death by firearm. It begins with an account of a crime that is by now almost commonplace: on December 16, 1988, sixteen-year-old Nicholas Elliot walked into his Virginia high school with a Cobray M-11/9 and several hundred rounds of ammunition tucked in his backpack. By day's end, he had killed one teacher and severely wounded another. In Lethal Passage Erik Larson shows us how a disturbed teenager was able to buy a weapon advertised as "the gun that made the eighties roar." The result is a book that can -- and should -- save lives, and that has already become an essential text in the gun-control debate. With a new afterword. "Touches on all aspects of the gun issue in this country. Gives great voice to that feeling...that something real must be done." --San Diego Union-Tribune "One of the most readable anti-gun treatises in years." --Washington Post Book World

Are there really laws governing the universe? Or is the order we see a mere artifact of the way evolution wired the brain? And is what we call science only a set of myths in which quarks, DNA, and information fill the role once occupied by gods? These questions lie at the heart of George Johnson's audacious exploration of the border between science and religion, cosmic accident and timeless law. Northern New Mexico is home both to the most provocative new enterprises in quantum physics, information science, and the evolution of complexity and to the cosmologies of the Tewa Indians and the Catholic Penitentes. As it draws the reader into this landscape, juxtaposing the systems of belief that have taken root there, Fire in the Mind into a gripping intellectual adventure story that compels us to ask where science ends and religion begins. "A must for all those seriously interested in the key ideas at the frontier of scientific discourse."--Paul Davies From the Trade Paperback edition.
