In this twist-filled fantasy adventure set in the world of Take Back the Skies and The Almost King, a young man must choose between two faces: dangerous master of shadows or beloved of the future queen. Noah is the finest mask-maker in all of Erova. He is responsible and loyal, and has won the heart and hand of the future queen. Daniel is dangerous and daring. Infamous. He prowls the filthy rooftops of the maze-like lower city in search of secrets and crime. Its people, hungry and forgotten, have come to need him. Noah and Daniel are the same person, and Daniel's life is beginning to tangle with Noah's, ensnaring the people he loves in a complex web of deception and heartbreak that will become deadly unless Noah can decide once and for all who he really wants to be.

The second book in a much loved Italian travel memoir trilogy which also includes the delightful When in Rome and Girl by Sea. After three years living and working in Italy, Australian journalist Penelope Green needs a reason to stick around - true love or gainful employment. When a job comes up in Naples - crime capital of Italy, home of pizza and the Camorra, and crouched at the foot of a volcano - Penny launches herself into the unknown. With her innate curiosity and eye for detail, Penny prises Naples open to show us the real city, in all its splendour... and all its depravity. She uncovers a chaotic metropolis when crime and poverty blur with abundant natural beauty, and where the shadow of Mount Vesuvius is a daily reminder that life must be lived for the moment. And when Penny meets a bass player in a local band, she thinks she might have found that other reason to stick around. 'This is a bewitching, true tale of a tantalising city. Magnifico!' - Marie Claire 'frank, funny and honest' - Notebook 'Her down to earth tone and genuine curiosity make for an interesting and insightful read' - Sun-Herald Author Biography Penelope Green was born in Sydney and worked as a print journalist around Australia for a decade before moving to Rome in 2002. Her first book, When in Rome, recounts her early experiences in the Eternal City. In 2005 she moved to Naples to work for ANSAmed, a Mediterranean news service. She found an apartment in the city's colourful Spanish Quarter, worked hard at mastering the Neapolitan dialect, and writing her second travel memoir, See Naples and Die. Girl by Sea completes Penny's Italian experience as she moves to the idyllic island of Procida, across the bay from Capri, with her Italian partner, Alfonso. The couple have now returned to Australia, where they are making a new life for themselves back in the Southern hemisphere. For more information visit penelopegreen.com.au

When archaeologist Carrie Norton discovers the remains of a murder victim from the Civil War era at an historic New York site, Detective Max Slattery begins to piece together parallels to a much more modern string of vicious slayings.

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire is Edward Gibbon's magnum opus, written and published over a 13-year period beginning in 1776. It not only chronicles the events of the downfall starting with the end of the rule of Marcus Aurelius, but proposes a theory as to why Rome collapsed: the populace, Gibbon theorizes, lost its moral fortitude, its militaristic will, and its sense of civic duty. History is considered a classic in world literature, and Gibbon is sometimes called the first "modern historian" for his insistence upon using primary sources for his research. Many scholars today still use his highly regarded work as reference. In this sixth of seven volumes, readers will find Chapter 52 ("More Conquests by the Arabs") through Chapter 63 ("Civil Wars and the Ruin of the Greek Empire"), which cover the continued wars between Constantinople and the Arabs; the rise of Harun al Rashid; Islamic advances in the sciences; the invasion of Rome by the Saracens; the state of the Byzantine Empire in the 10th century; the rise of Greek power and influence in the Eastern Roman Empire; the Paulicans; the establishment of a Bulgarian kingdom; the origin of the Russian monarchy; the rise of the Normans in Italy; the life of Robert Guiscard; the many conquests of Sicily; the origin of the Seljuk Turks and their empire; the Turkish conquest of Jerusalem; the First, Second, and Third Crusades; the break between the Greeks and Latins in Constantinople; the rule of Emperor Baldwin I; the resurgence of Greek power in Constantinople; the origins of the family of Courtenay; and the establishment of the Greek Empire. English parliamentarian and historian EDWARD GIBBON (1737-1794) attendedMagdelan College, Oxford for 14 months before his father sent him to Lausanne, Switzerland, where he continued his education. He published Essai sur l'tude de la Littrature (1761) and other autobiographical works, including Mmoire Justificatif pour servir de Rponse l'Expos, etc. de la Cour de France (1779).

The book is the true story of one pioneer families' journey to Oregon and the establishment of a homestead ranch near Auburn, Oregon; site of the famed 1861 Gold Strike by Henry Griffin. This novel details the actual accounts of the Haskell family in their struggle to survive their new life in Eastern Oregon. This narrative details a long running feud between the patriarch, Monroe Galusha Haskell, and his oldest son, Charlie Haskell. Monroe was secure in his supreme wisdom that ranching was Charlie's destiny. But he locked horns endlessly with his son whose independent spirit and high roller faith convinced him that he'd find his destiny in becoming the owner of a Gold Mine. Historic accounts of cattle rustling, crippling droughts, hard drinking, deadly blizzards, murders and lynchings, the sudden deaths of five family members, a traumatic accident that leaves a daughter with bouts of temporary insanity and a grudge against chickens, and finally two grandsons who enlist in World War One. The youngest sees action in the biggest battles with American General Blackjack Pershing and pays dearly for it. At times sad and then humorous these tales define what it is about us as people that makes us most interesting; our virtues and flaws; in short, our humanity.

In April of 1849 a group of settlers from Marion County Iowa pulled up roots and joined thousands of other Americans in traveling across the western American continent in the hope of staking a claim to newly found California gold. Very few had their dreams fulfilled. For George E. Jewett, who had left behind his wife and two young boys in the pursuit of his El Dorado, it meant never returning home, being divorced by his wife and starting a new life in California. What most distinguishes Jewett from the tens of thousands who made that long trek is that he kept a journal of his odyssey and it survived. With this publication that record is being made easily accessible to all who wish to read a first-hand account of those amazing gold rush emigrants of 1849.This book was revised in 2008.
