With the bravura storytelling and pungent authenticity of detail she brought to her acclaimed Lymond Chronicles, Dorothy Dunnett, grande dame of the historical novel, presents The House of Niccolo series. The time is the 15th century, when intrepid merchants became the new knighthood of Europe. Among them, none is bolder or more cunning than Nicholas vander Poele of Bruges, the good-natured dyer's apprentice who schemes and swashbuckles his way to the helm of a mercantile empire. Scotland, 1468: a nation at the edge of Europe, a civilization on the threshold of the Modern Age. Merchants, musicians, politicians, and pageantry fill the court of King James III. In its midst, Nicholas seeks to avenge his bride's claim that she carries the bastard of his archenemy, Simon St. Pol. When she flees before Nicholas can determine whether or not the rumored child is his own—or exists at all—Nicholas gives chase. So begins the deadly game of cat and mouse that will lead him from the infested cisterns of Cairo to the misted canals of Venice at carnival. Breathlessly paced, sparkling with wit. The Unicorn Hunt confirms Dorothy Dunnett as the genre's finest practitioner.

This is an investigation into the science of spirituality and the phenomenon at its foundation, sound vibrations. It details hows the phenomenon of acoustic figures known as Chladni patterns are at the root of what some call Sacred Geometry and how this phenomenon relates directly to the idea of chakras in the body. The book also shows how not only Hindu and Buddhist traditions are based upon this phenomenon, but Jewish, Christian, and Moslem, as well. The culmination of its assertion is that key religious figures whose births are claimed to be special or from a virgin, were actually a product of ancient artificial insemination rituals that were mystically based upon this phenomenon.
