From the moment Ovard woke him early in the morning, Jair knew that the time had come at last for them to run. Things were getting darker, most noticeably the sky itself. The time had come, and the prophecies foretold in Ovard’s books were coming to pass..... Brace knew nothing about any prophecies, and he hardly paid attention to the sky. He was, after all, usually out at night, when no one would notice him sneaking around. But the years he’d spent as a thief had made him careless. He’d been seen - caught in the act - and now he had to make a run for it. His plan was simple. Get out, and get out now! Little did Brace suspect that there was another plan at work, one that would involve him, in one of the greatest endeavors in the whole history of Dunya. The question he would need to ask himself now was, did he believe in any of it? Or did he even care?

In The Fallen Elves, book three of The Second Neoluzian War epic fantasy series, the wicked Orc dictator Arkan Spiritstrike, his wizards and military generals are on the verge of laying waste to the elven cities of Balenwood and Oakmantle after destroying the human settlements in the northern lands. This is a time of desperation for the good races because Darius has been lost to lower Neoluzia due to the Gathering of Replenishment spell cast upon him by members of the secretive wizard guild, the Veiled Institution. David Parr, a human from Earth summoned by Darius that reluctantly remains in Neoluzia to assist the Salon of Enlightenment against their Orc enemies, must find the great necromancer Termaplix if the land is to be saved. Finding Termaplix may be impossible however, for the hero from the War of Cleansing has been hidden in a secret place due to unknown circumstances one thousand years ago--a tomb long since forgotten to the current generations in the land. Perilously stifled in their shift away from the old magic and the forced elimination of history, those that Parr seeks to help against the enemy from the north must first learn to embrace the gift of magic again, an art banished in antiquity by the deception of peace and the deep wounds of the surviving populations in the first war.

I thought divine omegas were a myth ... until I met him. Dragons are on the verge of extinction and if we don't find the divine omegas we're doomed. In three hundred years I've never come across one. Until I meet ... him. Haiden is sweet and a little broken, and his fragile smiles make me yearn to claim him as my own. I never thought I'd find a divine omega in a tiny West Virginia town, but not only is Haiden an omega, he's my destined mate. Fate has led me to the young man, but the emotions he awakens in me blaze a fire in my heart and I cannot let him go. But once news of his existence breaks, I won't be the only one trying to claim Haiden. And when danger comes to our door, I'll do whatever it takes to keep him safe

In The Oath of the Necromancer, the tide of war rises against the good races of Neoluzia by the marauding armies of the Orcs from the north. The Orcs are led by Arkan Spiritstrike, a powerful Orc wizard who drives his forces to fulfill an Orc destiny designed over one thousand years ago. After the Veiled Institution restores Darius, David Parr is given the opportunity to return home to Earth, a place the Veiled Institution has declared a "forbidden world." Before he leaves, Parr is taken from his elven hosts by a disciple of the Veiled Institution so that he can be shown the true security danger in Neoluzia. Armed with this new information, Parr reluctantly decides to remain in Neoluzia so that he can find the great necromancer Termaplix, the last remaining hope for the salvation of the land. With his dark elven companions and a feisty dwarven paladin, David seeks to deliver this message tasked by Darius to the Salon of Enlightenment. Unknown to Parr however, the Orcs have planned to prevent his valiant party from leaving the elven forest of Frontentia alive and the stranger from Earth finds that he cannot escape The Second Neoluzian War.

The sequel to Through Wolf's Eyes and Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart Smart like a human. Smart like a wolf. Better yet, smart like both. With Through Wolf's Eyes and Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart, Jane Lindskold introduced us to young Firekeeper, one of the most appealing heroines in modern fantasy. Raised far from humans by smart, language-using wolves, then brought back to the court of Hawk Haven, Firekeeper has had to learn to cope with human society. And as it turns out, for one raised amidst intelligent social carnivores, the intrigues of the human pack aren't all that unfamiliar. Now Melina Shield, the beautiful, unscrupulous, and thoroughly discredited sorceress whose power-hungry intrigues have already made so much trouble for Firekeeper, is once again using her power to cloud men's minds. She has induced the ruler of New Kelvin to marry her. This is bad news all round. It's particularly bad news for Firekeeper. Melina has never abandoned her schemes to gain power through the use of forbidden ancient sorcery. And the leaders of the royal beasts who watch over this world have given Firekeeper -- and her intelligent wolf companion, Blind Seer -- the responsibility of stopping her.

In Parr Taken, the first book of The Second Neoluzian War epic fantasy series, one thousand years have passed since the end of Neoluzias most destructive war, the War of Cleansing. The War of Cleansing was so destructive that the good races of the land ordered the confiscation of all magical items and their components so that such a war could never be repeated. These instruments of war were buried in tombs, vaults and hidden throughout Neoluzia, forgotten by the races over the centuries. Restrictions on magic followed, ensuring the knowledge of the old magic was reduced. In time, the races lived together peacefully, their new history one of cooperation and mutual understanding. However, the drums of war are once again beating in Neoluzia, for the good races are unaware that their Orc neighbors to the north have been busy preparing, gathering and marching. Darius, a wizard that fought in the War of Cleansing and the most powerful spell caster to ever walk the land of Neoluzia, senses the danger. Darius helped cast down Antiluminous in the first war, defeating the Orcs, but that was one thousand years ago. Now old and deteriorating, Darius must demand the aid of a human from Earth, a stranger with no understanding of Neoluzia and its history.

New York Times bestselling author Robin Hobb returns to world of the Rain Wilds—called “one of the most gripping settings in modern fantasy” (Booklist)—in City of Dragons. Continuing the enthralling journey she began in her acclaimed Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven, Hobb rejoins a small group of weak, half-formed and unwanted dragons and their displaced human companions as they search for a legendary sanctuary. Now, as the misfit band approaches its final destination, dragons and keepers alike face a challenge so insurmountable that it threatens to render their long, difficult odyssey utterly meaningless. Touching, powerful, and dazzlingly inventive, Hobb’s City of Dragons is not to be missed—further proof that this author belongs alongside Raymond E. Feist, Terry Brooks, and Lois McMaster Bujold in the pantheon of fantasy fiction’s true greats.

What does the gift giver say about the gift He gave? This book will help you overcome the arguments, fears, and anxieties related to this gift. FEATURES AND BENEFITS Shares the author's personal testimony and spiritual journey with speaking in tongues Examines the history of this gift in the church for the past two thousand years Interacts with those who have denied that this gift is valid for today's church Speaks to the relationship between Spirit baptism, Spirit filling, and the gift of tongues Few other issues have separated the church more than the issue of tongues.

As a pastor, Storms knows the questions that the typical churchgoer is asking and provides clear and accessible answers to them all, including: Is the gift of tongues for every Christian or only some? How does the gift of tongues operate in the life of the believer individually in private practice? How does the gift of tongues operate in the corporate assembly of God's church? How is the Christian edified and strengthened by praying in tongues? How do I pray for the gift and prepare my heart to receive it? You can overcome the arguments, fears, and anxieties related to this spiritual gift. Remember, God gives only good gifts, and it is His intention that His church utilize all that He has provided so that we might experience all that He is.

In One Cycle of Darkness, book four of The Second Neoluzian War epic fantasy series, the Orc armies commanded by the wicked Orc dictator Arkan Spiritstrike have destroyed the dark elven city of Balenwood in Frontentia as their conquest of the lower lands continues unabated. The very dangerous 8th Orc legions commanded by the feared General Deathpox the Culler, now moves to cut off the dwarves of Carpallachia from providing assistance to the other endangered peoples of the land. At the salon castle, David Parr and his companions have unlocked the secret location of the great necromancer Termaplix using a combination of information that they have gathered in the land since the human stranger arrived in Neoluzia and a gift from Queen Tara in the Dagger of Sight. However, with the destruction of Balenwood and the pending Orc attack upon the light elven city of Oakmantle, David Parr's decision to remain in Neoluzia forces his widening involvement in the war and the demands placed upon him from those that face the darkness of the enemy from the north.
