Existence has a billion faces, each one an universe coexisting with our own. In one such universe, a man named Rafe has learned to walk between the worlds. Rafe can walk through the shadows of the worlds. Anything that he can imagine, he can find in the worlds that might be. During his wandering, he has met other Walkers. Some of these have been called gods by our ancestors. Odin, Zeus, or Enlil, Brahma or Kali, all of these awoke to the truth of infinite worlds, and learned to travel among the worlds with purpose. The world lines encompass all possibilities and all possible worlds. There are an infinite number of worlds in which humans, and some who are nearly human, live. Beyond these worlds are the ones that twist the mind into madness, worlds where the rules are not the familiar ones that we expect. Far from the places of humanity, there are places where, in all the universe, there are no places to stand, where even the stars have never formed, and some in which the hydrogen that fills our universe can never be. Far beyond these worlds are places so incomprehensible that the eye refuses to see there, and the ear cannot hear there, places that are beyond madness, where the mind dissolves with the merest experience. In this place which is neither dark nor light, where no rationality or order is possible, there are things that live beyond time and space, things that hunger for all things. The Scourge is from this darkest place, and it slowly intrudes into the shadows of order, bringing madness to both Man and world. It falls to the Walkers in Shadows to unite, and to seal the way against the Scourge, before the stain of the Scourge's touch can twist all worlds everywhere into madness.

Compromise isn't in Warrick's vocabulary and Xander won't abandon the hunt. As the line between instinct and intellect blurs, will they survive the fallout? A blonde, a brunette and a monster walk into a bar and all hell breaks loose. It should trigger a bad joke, but days from a full moon Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, finds nothing funny about confronting an enraged Shifter in a crowded Portland nightclub filled with unsuspecting humans. The resulting carnage frays an already thinning veil of secrecy shielding the supernatural Kyn community from public scrutiny and ensures she can't escape the one man she's determined to avoid, her Alpha and mate, Warrick Vidis. Dominating, protective and compelling, Warrick threatens her individuality like no other. As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn't in Warrick Vidis's vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander, refuses to abandon the hunt for a killer, he'll use whoever or whatever necessary to protect her and his pack. His normally steely ruthless control is strained by a series of anonymous threats and unusual deaths involving lone wolves. Add in Xander's continued reluctance to accept their Soul bond, and the line between intellect and instinct begins to blur, making him question if one woman's love and acceptance is enough to save both man and wolf. As the danger escalates, Warrick and Xander must learn to trust each other and accept their rare bond or risk losing everything--their pack, their friends and each other. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * They are the Kyn, supernatural beings who walk alongside the humans, their existence kept secret behind the thinnest of veils.

The Gift of Loving kindness

Loving-kindness, the English translation of the Pali word metta, is defined as unconditional well-wishing and openhearted nurturing of ourselves and others, just as we are. By practicing loving-kindness, you can learn to treat yourself and others-even strangers-like dear friends, putting aside criticism and judgment and choosing instead to open your heart to greater generosity, forgiveness, and compassion. While Buddha taught loving-kindness meditation as an antidote to fear, it can also quiet feelings of anger, judgment, and worry by helping you see the innate goodness within yourself and others. Whether used as part of a formal meditation practice or as daily mindfulness exercises, the 100 meditations in The Gift of Loving-Kindnessmake it easy to open your heart and share the seeds of loving-kindness with others. The Gift of Loving-Kindnessskillfully guides us to train our minds and hearts in the practice of loving-kindness meditation. The meditative exercises in this book can spark one's journey into greater love and compassion or enrich it anywhere along the path. Combining internal reflection and mindful exploration of our heart's capacity, these pragmatic exercises open us to genuine transformation. -Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness Keep The Gift of Loving-Kindnesson your bed table and let its wisdom guide you. This book offers a rich assortment of contemplations that will open and free your heart. -Tara Branch, Buddhist teacher and author of Radical Acceptance: Embracing your Life with the Heart of a Buddha Simply reading these words will awaken you. Actually doing even one of these practices could profoundly transform your life. I offer warm and deep thanks to the authors for blessing us with these hundred doorways to the deepest and best parts of ourselves as human beings. -Jeffrey Brantley, MD, author of Calming Your Anxious Mind Use this practical and heartfelt book to discover how to open your heart in any circumstance. New scientific evidence confirms that filling your heart with loving-kindness can broaden your mind and build your best possible future. -Barbara L. Fredrickson, Ph.D., recipient of the Templeton Positive Psychology Prize Perhaps the greatest power of loving-kindness meditation lies in its elegant simplicity. It is a gentle, easy-to-learn practice, yet its effects are profound, like a deep massage for the mind and soul. The authors present this ancient wisdom in a way that can soothe, deepen, and enrich our busy, modern lives. -Rebecca Elliott, Ph.D., psychologist
