London, 1893, there is poisoner loose in the city, with deaths piling up, and private enquiry agents Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn are apparently his next target in Fierce Poison by Will Thomas. Private Enquiry agent Cyrus Barker has just about seen it all—he's been attacked by assassins, his office has been bombed, and evil-doers have even nearly killed his dog. But never before has a potential client dropped dead in his office. When Roland Fitzhugh, Member of Parliment arrives to consult Barker and his partner Thomas Llewelyn, he falls to the floor, dead, upon entering. As they soon learn, he's been poisoned with a cyanide laced raspberry tart, and the adulterated tarts also take out an entire family in the East End. Labelled the Mad Pie Man by the press, Barker and Llewelyn are hired by former Prime Minister William Gladstone to find out who has targeted the House of Commons's newest member. But before they can even begin, they find themselves the latest target of this mad poisoner—with Barker's butler poisoned with digitalis and dozens of diabolic traps discovered at their home. On the run from their unseen adversary, Barker and Llewelyn must uncover the threads that connect these seemingly random acts and stop the killer before they and their closest friends and family become the latest casualties.

The moment he opened his eyes, he became the cannon fodder in the book? Who said that she wouldn't beat him to death when she crossed worlds to eat, drink, and flirt with men!

A certain Savage King frowned, "Scram, there's no need." But then ... A certain woman angrily said, "You big liar!" What they said about losing power and disfigurement were all lies! The Savage King's eyes were full of affection for him. "Little Sing, This King was wrong."

Mother of Rome, delight of Gods and men, Dear Venus that beneath the gliding stars Makest to teem the many-voyaged main And fruitful lands—for all of living things Through thee alone are evermore conceived, Through thee are risen to visit the great sun— Before thee, Goddess, and thy coming on, Flee stormy wind and massy cloud away, For thee the daedal Earth bears scented flowers, For thee waters of the unvexed deep Smile, and the hollows of the serene sky Glow with diffused radiance for thee! For soon as comes the springtime face of day, And procreant gales blow from the West unbarred, First fowls of air, smit to the heart by thee, Foretoken thy approach, O thou Divine, And leap the wild herds round the happy fields Or swim the bounding torrents. Thus amain, Seized with the spell, all creatures follow thee Whithersoever thou walkest forth to lead, And thence through seas and mountains and swift streams, Through leafy homes of birds and greening plains, Kindling the lure of love in every breast, Thou bringest the eternal generations forth, Kind after kind. And since 'tis thou alone Guidest the Cosmos, and without thee naught Is risen to reach the shining shores of light, Nor aught of joyful or of lovely born, Thee do I crave co-partner in that verse Which I presume on Nature to compose For Memmius mine, whom thou hast willed to be Peerless in every grace at every hour— Wherefore indeed, Divine one, give my words Immortal charm. Lull to a timely rest O'er sea and land the savage works of war, For thou alone hast power with public peace To aid mortality; since he who rules The savage works of battle, puissant Mars, How often to thy bosom flings his strength O'ermastered by the eternal wound of love— And there, with eyes and full throat backward thrown, Gazing, my Goddess, open-mouthed at thee, Pastures on love his greedy sight, his breath Hanging upon thy lips. Him thus reclined Fill with thy holy body, round, above!

“Up-Country Swahili Exercises” is a guide to learning Swahili complete with exercises. Swahili, also known as Kiswahili, is a Bantu language and the first language of the Swahili people. It is a lingua franca of the African Great Lakes region and other parts of Southeast Africa, including Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This volume concentrates on rural dialects and the more commonly-spoken language rather than “Correct Swahili”, and it will be of considerable utility to those wishing to learn it. Contents include: “Adjectives”, “Adverbs”, “Comparison of Adjectives”, “Conjunctions”, “Demonstrations”, “English-Derived Words”. “Interrogative”, “Locative Case”, “Measure”, “Money”, “Na”, “Nouns”, “Numerals”, “Personal Prefixes”, “Pronunciation”, “Solutions to Exercises”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

Most people with chronic health complaints visit their doctors to be prescribed medications that are often taken for life. These have significant side effects and never address the reasons for the illness. Conventional medicine rarely looks into the causes of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. Its as if it doesnt really matter what caused it. But you know it does. You will find, by reading this treasury of information, answers to why illness develops and natural solutions to reversing eighty-eight chronic health concerns. There is one truism I have learned after thirty-eight years of medical practice: For whatever condition a drug is prescribed to treat an illness, there is always a natural remedy that will work just as well or better and with far fewer side effects. This is something you will also learn from this book. You can be your own doctor, and this book will show you how. Whatever health challenges are facing you, please read this book before resorting to a lifetime of dangerous drugs and other questionable conventional treatments (Zoltan P. Rona, MD, M.Sc., Holistic Medical Doctor)

It was said that there was a stream of sword Qi in the myriad realms of heaven and earth, which could be condensed into the most tyrannical sharp sword. As long as a person completely possessed of this sword, they would be able to sweep across the world, ignore the limitations of any realm, and become the strongest and most arrogant person in the world. The youth, Ling Jian, encountered a natural disaster during the Shaolin trial in his previous life. His soul transmigrated to another world and accidentally encountered this sword energy. He desired to step onto the peak of all worlds! I have one pupil that can accommodate all living things, but Na Baichuan can control all swords. If you give me a sword, I can break through the firmament. I can suppress all lands, and I can control the heavens. If you give me a single blade, I can bury the Heavens and the Earth, I can cut down outstanding individuals, and I can break through ten thousand worlds. If you shoot me, you can point to heaven, you can pass through hell, and you can stir up the winds and clouds. Close]
