Is it his imagination or does there seem to be a clearing of the stale breath blowing from below? Its breeze, somehow, suddenly comes clean without the sound of its wheezing. Without sight he can only speculate, can only wrestle with the growing fear of what might be going on about him. A restless anger gnaws at him and his hand tightens upon the blade.There is that which has slumbered deep in the heart of this world called Thrae-and for more than five thousand years, it has dreamt. Of all that was, only the barest portion has survived in the ashes of a thousand wars fought amongst the races of men for dominion over her lands. Yet there still remain those who remember the day the ancient city of Urn fell, when the hordes of the Aunsidhlien first came into being in the aftermath of Delserite's war. Those powers, hidden yet silent, await the day when they can return.Now, as the great worm Oborean is roused from the mountain's heart, the long plains shiver again with emerging life. Meanwhile, from the river fold lands to the forests of Ty, the hordes of the Aunsidhlien gather for war. Once more, the ancient feud is stirring.

From bestselling author Katherine Kingsley. “Touching and tender…filled with the strong spirituality that has become a hallmark of Ms. Kingsley’s romances. The powerful love story of IN THE PRESENCE OF ANGELS will certainly take you out of the ordinary.” – Romantic Times Louisa Merriem is in danger of losing her farm after her husband dies in the war at Waterloo.

The first book to help you understand the mysteries and secret histories within the plot of Dan Brown's bestselling ANGELS AND DEMONS. SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS provides the curious reader with concise, authoritative explorations of the major themes that help propel the plot of Dan Brown's new bestseller, ANGELS AND DEMONS. Taking the same detailed approach as SECRETS OF THE CODE, Burstein and de Keijzer examine the provocative issues raised in the novel: the existence and scope of the Illuminati and their relationship to other 'secret societies'; the ongoing, centuries-old debate between science and religion; the history and practices of the Vatican and pagan symbolism and its place within the Church. They also explore the world of Bernini, master artist of the Baroque era, and the secret meanings behind his symbolism; what really happened in the trial of Galileo; and the real state-of-the-art of anti-matter technology. This book will delight and engage everyone who finished ANGELS AND DEMONS thinking, 'I need to know more about this book'.

What if you possessed the power to heal everyone in the world, except those you loved the most? What if your pastor revealed his darkest secret: you held in your healing hands the proof he was desperate for--the proof that God existed? Twelve-year-old Damaris Callahan has a secret the voices in her head forbid her from sharing, but when she finds a mortally injured kitten she disobeys the voices and her secret is out: Damaris has the power to heal. Damaris is not alone; with her awakening comes the attention of the Strange Angels and their Protectors--as well as the Adversary's Intruders--and the race for control of Damaris is on. But what is her true purpose? What do the Strange Angels AND the Intruders know that she doesn't? What will she do once she is grown? Even God is afraid.
