Eight Kingdoms &– the complete box set 1 - Dark Side of the Sun An ancient pact was once broken by the theft of Summer's Prince. Now, the Red King has found him. To live, to love, they seek the dark side of the sun... 2 - The Circle Unbroken A prince, a king, an oath to bind and an oath to break. Can something begun in darkness survive the light? Or does the shape of that oath define love...and the circle unbroken? 3 - The Burning Season Winter's love is blood and chaos...but fire isn't all that smolders at Summer's heart. 4 - The Shadow Road Spring is dead. Summer is divided. Autumn has its darkness...and Winter waits. 5 - A Harvest of Dreams and EmbersWhat the fire has learned, the ashes will remember...forever. Strange alliances are forged among the fae as Macsen Cadoc and his fae allies attempt to defeat the Milesians, Irish huntresses who bear a grudge against the sidhe. Failure will bring Macsen to his knees; success may do the same, unless he and Bran Fionnan, once a captive of the huntresses, can succeed in sowing seeds of peace. Yet even while some attempt to find a middle ground and forge a place where tolerance can flower, a new power rises, a threat to them all. The Church of Rome aims to win the earth from its immortal rivals, even if doing so comes at the price of magic itself. It will be up to Macsen to make a choice that might save the fae and all that sustains them...but only Bran has the power to convince him to do what is right. Can mortal and immortal overcome the conflicts that divide them when some must hunt others to survive? Is love stronger than anything—even a Fae King's pride?

A prince, a king, an oath to bind and an oath to break. Can something begun in darkness survive the light? Or does the shape of that oath define love...and the circle unbroken? Three months have passed since Macsen Cadoc's rescue of Bran Fionnan—three mortal months, three days in Macsen's Red Kingdom. Bran is seeking a place for himself as sidhe, as Summer's Prince and as Macsen's consort, and the Red King has started to balance the thirst of his own nature with the love that now moves him just as much. Yet when Bran is reminded of an oath that was made between them when he was just a child, that which has so far held them together may end up tearing them apart. While the strength of their love is tested, a mortal enemy is once more in motion. Focused only on their destruction, Dealla seeks to step into the place of her dead father—to rule over the Milesians and fulfill the oaths of crown and country. To do so, she must find a way to hurt two foes...one new and openly deadly, the other ancient and its enmity long asleep. Allies appear in unlikely places, armed by their own motives to seek the same destruction Dealla desires... But the price of success may be higher than the cost of failure—higher than any plot or plan allows. What is the price of an oath fulfilled? Is love born from nothing, or does it wear a path that can be traced?

When Tom Ryan stops his car late at night on a dark road for a man dressed as a Roman centurion, his first thought is that he's picked up one of those amateur re-enactors but the man, Marcus Appius Silvanus appears to speak only Latin. He insists the year is AD60 and that the British Queen is Boudicca - and that he and his men of the Fourteenth Gemina are in hot pursuit of her. Tom and his sister Mary shelter the Roman, but inadvertently attract the attention of an unscrupulous journalist. He's not the only one interested in the Ryans: an IRA terrorist who was once Mary's lover in Northern Ireland tracks her down to tell her the plane crash which killed her parents twenty years ago was caused by the British security services. Deep in the English countryside, those same servants of the state are busy exploiting the theories of a young prodigy to build 'Oracle', a probe that can view the past - and, they hope, the future, so that threats to national security can be stifled before they occur.

This volume aims to balance the traditional literature available on medieval feuding with an exploration of other aspects of vengeance and culture in the Middle Ages. A diverse assortment of interdisciplinary essays from scholars in Europe and North America contest or enlarge traditional approaches to and interpretations of vengeance in the Middle Ages. Each essay attempts to clarify the multifaceted experience of vengeance within a specific medieval context”a particular region, a particular text, a particular social movement. By asking what relationship a distinct factor like authorship or religion has with the concept of vengeance, each author points towards the breadth of meanings of medieval vengeance, and to the heart of the deeper and broader questions that spur scholarly interest in the subject. Geographically, the essays in the volume highlight Western Europe (particularly the Anglo-Norman world), Scotland, Ireland, Spain, and Portugal. Thematically, the essays are concerned with heroic cultures of vengeance, vengeance as a legal and political tool, Christian justification and expression of vengeance, literature and the distinction between discourse and reality, and the emotions of vengeance. Methodologically, these interdisciplinary studies incorporate tools borrowed from anthropology, the study of emotion, and modern social and literary theories. This volume is aimed at professional scholars and graduate students within the broad field of medieval studies, including the subfields of history, literature, and religious studies, and is intended to inspire further research on medieval vengeance. However, this collection will also prove interesting to non-medievalists interested in the history of emotion, the justification of human conflict, and the concept of feud and its applicability to specific historical periods.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Daheim's The Alpine Winter. Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the charming hamlet of Alpine is preparing for Thanksgiving, while Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, feels her spirits sink. There will be no family or friends to share the day, but a call from Sheriff Milo Dodge on the Monday after the holiday weekend leaves her no time to wallow. Three alarming letters, sent to the sheriff from an anonymous writer, assert that the murder conviction of Alpine resident Larry Petersen ten years earlier was the result of a wrongful arrest. Adding to the miscarriage of justice, Petersen recently died behind bars. Then a fourth letter arrives, threatening retribution in the form of another death—most likely Emma’s or Milo’s. Mary Daheim’s Emma Lord novel is a rich and authentic blend of small-town life and chilling menace.

Author: Kevin Hearne
Publisher: Del Rey
With a sly blend of fantasy, humor, and paranormal adventure, Kevin Hearne has established a reputation as the trickster god of action-packed mash-ups. His signature creation, Atticus O’Sullivan, is a folk hero for the twenty-first century, battling legendary beasts, shadowy mystics, and demonic demigods from around the world. Now this addictive eBook bundle brings together the first six novels of The Iron Druid Chronicles (with bonus novellas and short stories) in one supersized dose of genre-smashing mayhem: HOUNDED HEXED HAMMERED TRICKED TWO RAVENS AND ONE CROW (NOVELLA) TRAPPED HUNTED GRIMOIRE OF THE LAMB (NOVELLA) Also includes the short stories “Clan Rathskeller” and “Kaibab Unbound,” as well as a special preview of Kevin Hearne’s upcoming novel A Plague of Giants! Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

Author: John D Hartman
The sorceress, Morgana, had won. The death of King Arthur signified the end of Camelot and the age of chivalry casting the world into a dark time where evil had little constraint. Merlin, the magician, had failed in his effort to limit the black magic of the fairy witch and instead found himself captive in the cave of Druid Island where he would linger while the chaos flourished. Years later his wizard son, Thomas, would be given the opportunity to succeed where his father had failed. It was not something he could undertake on his own and, as his father had used the youngster Arthur to further his goals, so Thomas would mentor the young boy, David, knowing that soon he would have to face the evil sorceress. Their quest would take the two on a journey to the strange land of the Fantasian Forest to obtain the Druid’s Egg, a gem capable of destroying the witch. But it would be a journey fraught with danger and creatures not known to the modern world. Even if the Egg were to be obtained, it would still be necessary to face the witch and her followers and the wizard was unsure if the boy had the courage to do so.
