Not only is the not-entirely-bereaved widow out for a take, but also local authorities find themselves overrun by those willing to kill for a chance to find the gold. Speaking of killing, who bashed in the victims skull? Obese Sergeant Gillings is on the case with the help of his officers and trackers. The roguish Bob and his lover, Chaenee, are on the hunt as well. Australian Aborigines in the Dead Heart are on a rampage because strangers enter their forbidden territory. These gold-hungry adventurers have to fight each other, wild natives, and the unforgiving terrain itself on the perilous path to striking it rich.

The seven shards of the Shattered Star have been recovered, and the Pathfinders prepare a grand festival on Magnimar's Irespan to celebrate this incredible achievement. The culmination of this celebration is to be the reassembly of the seven shards into the legendary Sihedron itself, rebuilt for the first time in over ten thousand years. But a lot can change in that amount of time, and as the ritual to reforge the artifact finishes, ancient contingencies rumble to life, and as the dead heart of Thassilon begins to beat once again, all of Magnimar is put in terrible danger. With the power of the Sihedron on their side, the heroes take a stance against this risen evil - but will the aid of an ancient artifact be enough to save them all? The final chapter in the Shattered Star Adventure Path, The Dead Heart of Xin is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 15th-level characters. This volume also includes an essay on the ancient Runelords of Thassilon, complete with threads that reach to the modern day, plus new monsters fill the Pathfinder Bestiary and Bill Ward's Pathfinder Journal fiction concludes its exploration of the seedy underbelly of the scoundrel haven of Riddleport.

“You’d better start believing in fairy tales. They’re starting to believe in you.” Adrienne Arden lives a haunting life. The daughter of a wealthy hotel chain mogul, she prefers to hide behind the camera- even if she is a forensic photographer, taking pictures of dead people for a living. So what if she’s unsuccessful in love? What does she care if her colleagues think she’s cold and unapproachable? She quite likes her life, thank you very much. She certainly doesn’t have the time to listen to the local town gossips whispering about the Fallen One’s. Gods who fell to Earth aeons ago; who live quietly among mortals? Please. She’s far too logical to fall for that kind of clap trap. It’s a perfect life- until a fatal incident one cold night tears her foundations out from under her, leaving Adrienne bereft. Following the advice of her therapist, Adrienne travels to Greece to take in the sights, and rediscover why she fell in love with photography in the first place. Sun, sea and sand... It would be heaven- if only she could escape her various brushes with death, or the blue eyes of a man that melts into the shadows every time she gets close. How’s a girl supposed to catch her breath? Fearing her sanity is unravelling at the seams, and unsure of who exactly is friend or foe, Adrienne will need to find the logic in the illogical, seek answers to what really happened that fateful night; get a tan and go home to her cat… Before it’s too late… Dead Heart is a full length, debut novel in E V Mason's Fallen Ones series, with NO cliff-hanger ending. If you like a dash of romance, mysterious men, and headstrong women in a world where the Deities of Greek Myth are dragged kicking and screaming into the modern age, then order your copy today!

In America, we live in a fast-paced, self-indulgent society of pleasure-seeking people who predicate their lifestyles on consumer-oriented and materialistic notions. Influenced by this world around us, our hearts may become faithless, dishonest, deceptive, distressed, and, at times, evil. Hence, our hearts become damaged. However, in the quiet of our solitude, we can deeply reflect on how to become devout and pious as we awaken the pure heart. In Awaken the Pure Heart, author Tallal Alie Turfe explains that while the heart pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins called the cardiovascular system, it is also the spiritual control center of lifethe very center of our existence, and the very essence of who we are. The heart is the center of the soul. It is the seat of our emotional intelligence, intention, and desires, and it is the point of our personal contact with God as He judges. By looking to the Quran as a healing source and by slowing down and reflecting in solitude through prayer and supplication, we too can restore our hearts and the hearts of others. The heart is more than the most important organ in the human body. It is also the quintessence of our spiritual and emotional well-being. Acceptance causes the heart to be elated or jubilant, while rejection causes the heart to be saddened or troubled. Thus, by listening to our hearts, we can discover how to embrace its purity and live with virtue in the modern world.
