Shortlisted for the 2014 Gemmell Morningstar Award--Best Debut Novel An uneasy peace has existed since the fall of the Awakened Empire centuries ago. Now the hybrid Avān share the land with the people they once conquered: the star-born humans; the spectral, undead Nomads; and what remains of the Elemental Masters. With the Empress-in-Shadows an estranged ghost, it is the ancient dynasties of the Great Houses and the Hundred Families that rule. But now civil war threatens to draw all of Shrīan into a vicious struggle sparked by one man's lust for power, and his drive to cheat death. Visions have foretold that Corajidin, dying ruler of House Erebus, will not only survive, but rise to rule his people. The wily nobleman seeks to make his destiny certain--by plundering the ruins of his civilization's past for the arcane science needed to ensure his survival, and by mercilessly eliminating his rivals. But mercenary warrior-mage Indris, scion of the rival House Näsarat, stands most powerfully in the usurper's bloody path. For it is Indris who reluctantly accepts the task of finding a missing man, the only one able to steer the teetering nation towards peace.

Gardening is a wonderful activity for any age and gender. Gardening can be a hobby or a profession. It can be a source of income and a source of joy. A young child will delight to watch a seed grow producing a beautiful flower and a senior gardener will cherish a tree they have watched grow over the years. To provide a space for these activities whether it is a window box or a small plot of land or a grand estate with many gardens, is to encourage the simple enjoyment of watching a plant grow.

The Art of Setting Stones

The Art of Setting Stones

Yet the circle drawn in my studio this morning did not suggest a limitless world,
too vast and powerful to comprehend, but an ephemeral one, clinging to the
surface of the globe with no more tenacity than the moss on these garden stones.

In Japanese gardens, composition follows from placement of the first stone; all elements and plantings become interconnected. These eight essays on Kyoto gardens similarly begin with keen description and build into richly meditative excursions into art, Buddhism, nature, and science. Landscape architect Marc Keane shows how Japanese gardens are both a microcosm of the natural universe and a clear expression of our humanity, mirroring how we think, worship, and organize our lives and communities. Filled with passages of alluring beauty, this is a truly transcendent book about "experiencing" Japanese design. Marc Peter Keane has lived in Kyoto for 17 years and is author of Japanese Garden Design. He designs residential, company, and temple gardens.

In addition to the rocks placed for their symbolism, there will be others used as
stepping-stones, tea-garden stones, and so on. Under this head, too may be
mentioned the water-basins, each with its simple wooden ladle, for rinsing the
