The Harry Potter series of books and movies are wildly popular. Many Christians see the books as largely if not entirely harmless. Others regard them as dangerous and misleading. In his book A Landscape with Dragons, Harry Potter critic Michael O'Brien examines contemporary children's literature and finds it spiritually and morally wanting. His analysis, written before the rise of the popular Potter books and films, anticipates many of the problems Harry Potter critics point to. A Landscape with Dragons is a controversial, yet thoughtful study of what millions of young people are reading and the possible impact such reading may have on them. In this study of the pagan invasion of children's culture, O'Brien, the father of six, describes his own coming to terms with the effect it has had on his family and on most families in Western society. His analysis of the degeneration of books, films, and videos for the young is incisive and detailed. Yet his approach is not simply critical, for he suggests a number of remedies, including several tools of discernment for parents and teachers in assessing the moral content and spiritual impact of this insidious revolution. In doing so, he points the way to rediscovery of time-tested sources, and to new developments in Christian culture. If you have ever wondered why a certain children's book or film made you feel uneasy, but you couldn't figure out why, this book is just what you need. This completely revised, much expanded second edition also includes a very substantial recommended reading list of over 1,000 books for kindergarten through highschool.

Dare to enter the HOUSE OF NIGHT, the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestselling young adult series by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, with this complete collection of all four novellas! DRAGON'S OATH: In the early 19th century, Dragon Lankford is a troublesome, yet talented human teen. When he is Marked onboard a ship to America, he is saved from sure death by a Son of Erebus who sees his potential. At the Kansas City House of Night, Dragon commences his own journey towards becoming a fierce fencing master—but when a threat emerges for the House of Night, Dragon is pulled into the middle. His uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, but is he strong enough to ward off this new darkness? Will his choices save the woman he cares for—or destroy them all? LENOBIA'S VOW: In a small southern town at the turn of the century, young Lenobia is developing into a beautiful young woman with ideas of her own. But when she is Marked as a fledgling vampyre, her world turns upside down, and she is drawn to the musical streets of New Orleans. There, she learns of the city's dark underbelly, ruled by powerful black magic. As Lenobia experiences her first love—and loss—and discovers a passion for horses to sustain her, she must come face-to-face with Darkness itself...and she may not escape without scars. NEFERET'S CURSE: Neferet, the Tulsa House of Night's darkly seductive High Priestess, wasn't always a powerful vampyre, but she has always been beautiful. Raised in turn-of-the-century Chicago in a motherless home, her beauty makes her the prey of unwanted attention and abuse, leaving her with wounds that will never heal—and a Darkness that will eventually need to find its way out. When she's Marked and gains strength, both physical and magickal, she turns her anger into power and looks for a way to wreak vengeance. KALONA'S FALL: From the Sun and from the Moon, two winged brothers are born: golden Erebus, playmate and friend, and mysterious Kalona, Warrior and lover, companions of the Goddess Nyx. From the first, Nyx loves them both deeply, though differently; but for Kalona, Nyx's nights are not enough. Ruled by anger and jealousy of his brother, and consumed by his love for his Goddess, Kalona seeks the power to prove his worth, and to claim once and for all that Nyx eternally belongs to him—all while Darkness stirs, waiting for its chance...

Destiny; that was what his name meant in the ancient language of Talany, spoken primarily by telepaths, as the partly mental language helped them reach their audience on a deeper level. But such knowledge has been lost to the inhabitants of the mining-planet Evion for more than two thousand years. Numak Teorenn is unaware that he is anything but an ordinary young telepath, one of the few remaining after the Great Counsel banned them from procreating. Only when he leaves home to study at the Tarei Waystation in the mountains of Suli, does he learn differently. All Numak wants, aside from becoming one of the revered Dragonriders, is to find answers regarding the mysterious death of his twin sister. But he soon learns that his life has a pre-planned purpose, and nothing could have prepared him for the reasons behind it. He knows he has a destiny; in a way, he has always known... and when he discovers its true nature, should he fight it or embrace it? Will he have any choice at all?

It's not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear--a lot--or else salute. It's true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother's soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer. Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly, and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe--a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fills her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn't get any stranger. She's wrong. . . And just wait until you meet the rest of the family. . .

Following directly in the wake of The Temple of Yellow Skulls, our heroes face the totality of the destructive and pestilent forces presented by the Abyssal Plague. The disease of the liquid crystal Voidharrow spreads throughout the land, transforming unsuspecting creatures into plague demons. Shara, Uldane, and the unlikely drow hero Valmaggar join forces with Tempest and Rohgar from The Mark Of Nerath, and together they set out in search of the green dragon Vestapalk, or the creature Vestapalk has become--the patient zero of this abyssal plague. Meanwhile, Albanon and the mysterious cleric Kri Redshal--the last remaining member of the Order of Vigilance, an order dedicated to guarding the Voidharrow--go in search of answers to the disease that sweeps the land. While their search takes them deep into the heart of the darkness that is enveloping the land, the answers they find are truly in need of new questions. As they become aware of the true scale of the tragedy at hand, they see the forces behind them are more powerful than they had ever dreamed, and perhaps more seductive. From the Paperback edition.
