"e;. . . grows more addicting with each chapter."e; -Kirkus Reviews In adversity lies strength beyond imagining.Abandoned as a baby, young Emelyn's life as a housemaid in the quiet village of Fallow is unremarkable-and empty. That is, until a host of magical creatures arrives and inflicts terrible misdeeds on the townsfolk. Inexplicably immune to their enchantments, Emelyn joins a pair of Magi intent on stopping the cause of the trouble-and who claim to know of her parents, promising Emelyn answers to a lifetime of questions.But the answers Emelyn seeks prove to be more elusive than she hoped, and the world outside Fallow more perilous than she imagined. Magical creatures roam the land over, attacking yet another town before coming after Emelyn. The key to her survival-and finding her family-lies deep within her, if only she can conquer her doubts and believe she is more powerful than she ever dreamed.In a journey that explores facing one's fears amidst the uncertainties of an unknown world, The Thirteenth Tower is a magical tale of discovery, growth, and of love's enduring strength.

The Thirteenth Greatest of Centuries

It is a curious reflection on modern architecture , that some of the modern high
business buildings are saved from being hideous just in as much as they
approach the character of some of these tower - like structures of the Thirteenth
Century .

Settlement and Crusade in the Thirteenth Century sheds new light on formerly less explored aspects of the crusading movement and the Latin East during the thirteenth century. In commemoration of the 800th anniversary of the construction of 'Atlit Castle, a significant section of this volume is dedicated to the castle, which was one of the most impressive built in the Latin East. Scholarly debate has centred on the reasons behind the construction of the castle, its role in the defence of the Kingdom of Jerusalem during the thirteenth century, and its significance for the Templar order. The studies in this volume shed new light on diverse aspects of the site, including its cemetery and the surveys conducted there. Further chapters examine Cyprus during the thirteenth century, which under the Lusignan dynasty was an important centre of Latin settlement in the East, and a major trade centre. These chapters present new contributions regarding the complex visual culture which developed on the island, the relation between different social groups, and settlement patterns. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, this book will be of interest to scholars and students of the medieval period, as well as those interested in the Crusades, archaeology, material culture, and art history.

The purpose of this book is to give visitors to the medieval castles of Wales a concise but informative description of the main publicly accessible sites in a convenient format. An introductory chapter outlines the development of castle architecture in Britain, drawing on welsh examples, with a number of box features that elaborate more fully on particular aspects, for instance gatehouses, or key personalities, such as Llywelyn Fawr. Five chapters from a regionally based gazetteer of the castles described, and each entry is prefaced with a key to arrangements at each castle, for example whether there is an entry charge. The known history of any given site is summarized and this is followed by the core of each entry, namely the description of the visible remains, to enable visitors to navigate their way around. A final chpater provides a brief overview of castle-like buildings dating from the seventeenth century onwards, which is followed by a guide to further reading. --Book Jacket.
