For some men, walking the path of their destiny may take two thousand years. But for others, it may only be a journey of a single night. In the third book of the Age of Dragons series, the journey continues through the fantastical world of beloved fantasy, where dragons are real, and dreams—and nightmares—come true. On a September evening in 1931, John and Jack, two of the Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica, discover a plea for help on an ancient medieval parchment—which is not only addressed to them, but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson. Before they can discover the origin of this strange book, Hugo walks through a door in time and vanishes into the past. And just like that, the world begins to change. The only hope to restore the proper order of things lies in a forgotten island at the edge of the Archipelago, where a time travel device left by Jules Verne must be used to race through history. But even if all of the legendary Caretakers from past and present are able to answer the oldest mystery in the world and save Hugo, there may be darker forces gathering against them with a greater crisis at hand. The last stones are falling from the Keep of Time, and an old enemy in a new form has acquired a terrible weapon: the Spear of Destiny, which can be used to command the shadows of anything it touches—even the Dragons. The Shadow King, combined with forces of a new enemy, may be unstoppable now. The only hope is Rose Dyson, the Grail Child. She may be the only one to assist the companions on their desperate quest and find the only weapon capable of defeating their enemies.

Siew seeks to examine the events that will unfold within the three and a half years before the dawn of the kingdom of God on earth. He argues that John composed the textual unit of Rev 11:1--14:5 as a coherent and unified literary unit structured in a macro-chiasm. He pays special attention to the fusion of form and content and seeks to elucidate how the concentric and chiastic pattern informs the meaning of the literary units within 11:1--14:5, and proposes that the text of 11:1--14:5 is best analyzed using Hebraic literary conventions, devices, and compositional techniques such as chiasm, parallelism, parataxis, and structural parallelism. The macro-chiastic pattern provides the literary-structural framework for John to portray that the events of the last three and a half years unfold on earth as a result of what transpires in heaven. Specifically, the war in heaven between Michael and the dragon has earthly ramifications. The outcome of the heavenly war where Satan is defeated and thrown out of heaven to earth results in the war on earth between the two beasts of Rev 13 and the two witnesses of Rev 11. The narrative of the war in heaven (12:7-12) is seen as the pivot of the macro-chiastic structure. Siew pays close attention to the time-period of the three-and-a-half years as a temporal and structural marker which functions to unite the various units in 11:1--14:5 into a coherent and integral whole. The events of the last days will be centred in Jerusalem.

Preface “The deaf listens to words of the mute; For only the soul can underastand the unsaid and the unheard words. People were divided into seventy-two languages and borders arose.” These lines belong to a Turkish thinker who lived in the 13th century. UNESCO declared 2021 as ‘The Year of Yunus Emre’ for the 700th anniversary of his death. In this book, we have also a short story dedicated to Yunus Emre. The teachers and students collaborating to make real a mutual dream discovered the wordless language stronger than any borders. We have a mutual dream with the young authors from seven different countries: to create a multilingual book. We published our first book last year on 23rd April 2020. Printed books were delivered to the young authors studying in partner schools. In the second year of our project, we created short stories with children from Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Poland, Romania and Türkiye. Our students wrote many short stories and 65 of them were selected to be published in this book. We created an audiobook library with that stories. All the stories were narrated in their mother tongues, and we add English audio for selected stories. Also, stories are illustrated by the students from different countries. We also have a collaborative story this year, each part of the story was written by eTwinners studying in different schools. It consists of 13 parts. Nihal, the main character, needs to find an extinct plant, but it’s harder for her to find someone to rely on. We travelled with her in different countries and times to learn more about her adventure. It took seven months to complete that collaborative story. We used English as a common language during the meetings, but we created opportunities for our students to use their mother tongues too. We experienced multilingualism with our students and parents, they become familiar with different languages and cultures. Through our language-friendly project, we want to encourage students to develop an interest in different languages and cultures by welcoming and valuing all languages spoken. By creating a story, a child can channel their emotions and decide on how to behave in challenging situations they might encounter. While creating a story, the author shows empathy with the characters, expresses different emotions experienced by characters, or overcomes a difficult situation that a character encountered. This may help a child to express how they feel and understand how others feel. Storytelling is a way of self-discovery and self-expression, their feelings can be demonstrated throughout the child’s words. Creating a story can also develop language skills. The mother tongue education is a raison d’être for the schools. Because when learners develop their mother tongue, they are simultaneously fostering a whole host of other essential skills, such as critical thinking and literacy skills. Children with a strong mother tongue can easily pick up a second language and can transfer these skills to a second language. These children often display a deeper understanding of themselves and their environment. That affects every aspect of their lives, including their academic achievement. It has become a requirement to have language skills in addition to being a specialist within a particular field. I’d like to thank the teachers of Ali Tekinsoy Secondary School and my distinguished colleagues from partner schools for encouraging and inspiring their students to contribute to our second multilingual book named “Stories of Lights in the Sky-2”. More than a hundred students built this book with their words, lines and voices. They were brave enough to represent their schools by sending their stories to a book that has been read in more than fifty countries. We wish the best for them and hear their names again even years afters. Ahmet ARSLAN Editor Önsöz "Dilsizler haberini, kulaksız dinleyesi Dilsiz kulaksız sözün, can gerek anlayası Yetmiş iki dil saçtı, araya sınır düştü” Bu dizeler 13. yüzyılda yaşayan bir Türk düşünürüne aittir. UNESCO, 2021 yılını ölümünün 700. yıldönümü anısına ’Yunus Emre Yılı' olarak ilan etti. Bu kitapta Yunus Emre'ye adanmış bir kısa öykümüz de var. Şiirdeki gibi ortak hayalimiz için birlikte çalıştığımız öğretmen ve öğrencilerle, aradaki sınırları kaldıracak güçlü bir dil inşa ettik. Yedi farklı ülkeden genç yazarlarla paylaştığımız bir hayalimiz vardı; çok dilli bir kitap oluşturmak. İlk kitabımızı geçen yıl 23 Nisan'da yayımladık ve farklı ülkelerdeki genç yazarlarımıza basılı kitaplarını ulaştırdık. Projemizin ikinci yılında İrlanda, Portekiz, İspanya, Hırvatistan, Polonya, Romanya ve Türkiye'den çocuklarla kısa öyküler oluşturduk. Öğrencilerimiz birçok kısa öykü yazdılar ve 65 kısa öykü bu kitapta yayınlanmak üzere seçildi. Bu öykülerle faklı dillere öğrencilerimizin aşina olmasını sağlayacak bir sesli kitap kütüphanesi oluşturduk. Tüm öyküler ana dillerinde seslendirildi ve seçilen bazı öyküler için İngilizce seslendirme de ekledik. Ayrıca, öyküler farklı ülkelerdeki öğrenciler tarafından resmedildi. Proje boyunca etkileşimi artırmak adına mümkün olduğunca görevleri çapraz olarak dağıttık. Bu yıl geçen yıldan farklı olarak işbirlikçi bir öykümüz de var, öykünün her bölümü farklı okullarda okuyan öğrencilerce yazıldı. Bu öykü 13 bölümden oluşmaktadır. Öyküde kahramanımız Nihal, soyu tükenmiş bir bitkiyi bulmak için bir maceraya atılıyor, ancak güvenecek birini bulmak onun için daha zor. Macerasının devamını öğrenmek için birlikte farklı ülke ve zamanlarda yolculuk yaptık. 7 ayda yazılan öykümüzü beğenerek okuyacağınızı düşünüyorum. Bunun yanında öğrenci ve öğrenciler birçok toplantı yaptık, İngilizceyi ortak bir dil olarak kullandığımız toplantılarda öğrencilerimizin anadillerini de birbirinden öğrenmeleri için fırsatlar yarattık. Öğrencilerimiz ve velilerimiz çok dilliliği tecrübe etti, farklı dil ve kültürlere aşina oldular. Dil dostu projemizle, konuşulan tüm dilleri memnuniyetle karşılıyor ve değer vererek öğrencilerimizi farklı dillere ve kültürlere ilgi duymaya teşvik etmek istiyoruz. Kurgu oluşturmak çocuğun duygularını yönetebilmesine ve karşılaşabileceği zorlu durumlarda nasıl davranacağına karar verebilmesine olanak sağlar. Bir öykü oluştururken, yazar karakterleriyle empati kurar, karakterlerin yaşadığı farklı duyguları okuyucuya aktarır veya bir karakterin karşılaştığı zor bir durumun üstesinden birlikte gelir. Bu, bir çocuğun nasıl hissettiğini ifade etmesine ve başkalarının nasıl hissettiğini anlamasına yardımcı olabilecek bir çalışmadır. Öykü anlatımı, kendini keşfetme ve ifade etmenin emin bir yoludur, çocukların iç dünyası kelimeleri vasıtasıyla ortaya dökülür. Bir öykü kurgulamak dil becerilerini de geliştirebilir. Ana dil eğitimi okulların var oluş sebebidir. Çünkü öğrenciler anadillerini geliştirdiklerinde, aynı anda eleştirel düşünme ve okuryazarlık becerileri gibi bir dizi diğer temel becerileri geliştirirler. Güçlü bir ana dili olan çocuklar kolayca ikinci bir dil edinebilir ve bu becerileri ikinci bir dile aktarabilirler. Bu çocuklar genellikle kendileri ve çevreleri hakkında daha derin bir algılama düzeyine ulaşabilirler. Bu, akademik başarıları da dahil olmak üzere hayatlarının her yönünü etkiler. Belirli bir alanda uzman olmanın yanı sıra dil becerilerine sahip olmak bir gereklilik haline gelmiştir. Ali Tekinsoy Ortaokulu öğretmenlerine ve ortak okullardan seçkin meslektaşlarıma, öğrencilerini “Gökyüzündeki Işıkların Öyküsü-2” adlı ikinci çok dilli kitabımıza öğrencilerimizi katkıda bulunmaya teşvik ettikleri ve ilham verdikleri için teşekkür ediyorum. Yüzden fazla öğrenci bu kitabı kelimeleri, çizgileri ve sesleri ile inşa etti. Okullarını temsil etme özgüvenine sahip olan öğrencilerimiz, öykülerini elliden fazla ülkede okunan bir kitaba gönderdiler. Onların gelecekleri için en güzelini diliyoruz ve yıllar sonra isimlerini tekrar duymayı umut ediyoruz. Ahmet ARSLAN Editör 19.05.2021
