Siren and soulmate to the King of Night, Callypso Lillis survived the clutches of Karnon, the mad king, and his twisted prison. But the nightmare isn't over. Callie wears the physical reminders of her time as a captive, and mounting evidence suggests the Thief of Souls is still out there.When a fae celebration thrusts Callie and her mate, Desmond Flynn, into the Kingdom of Flora, they take their investigation with them. But under the bright lights and striking blooms of the realm, they find there are more immediate issues to deal with. No place is more uniquely savage than the great fae halls, and no amount of bargains can save Callie from royal intrigues.Fairies play dangerous games. Some want love, some want vengeance, some want flesh, and some want things too unspeakable to utter. One thing is for sure: no one is who they appear to be. Not even Des, who only grows more enigmatic with every passing secret.But the Kingdom of Flora has its own secrets, from bleeding trees to branded slaves and missing guards. Something is stirring in the land of all that grows, and if Callie isn't careful, it will claim everything and everyone she loves-and her along with it.

For the last seven years she's been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she's received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear.Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He's a man who can get you anything you want ... at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects. So when Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows he's finally here to collect. At first, all he asks for is a chaste kiss-a single bead's worth-and a promise for more. But Callie has a wrist full of debt, and the Bargainer has many, many demands.

The latest scholarship on the role of hymns in American evangelicalism. Music and song are important parts of worship, and hymns have long played a central role in Protestant cultural history. This book explores the ways in which Protestants have used and continue to use hymns to clarify their identity and define their relationship with America and to Christianity. Representing seven groups--Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Mennonites, Holiness, Hispanics, and Evangelicals--the nine essays reveal how hymns have helped immigrants to establish new identities, contributed to the body of worship resources, and sustained ethnic identity. Individual essays address the music of the Old-Fashioned Revival Hour, America's longest running and most successful independent radio program; singing among Swedish evangelicals in America; the German hymn tradition as transformed by Mennonite immigrants; the ways hymnody reinforces themes of the Wesleyan holiness movement; the history of Mercer's Cluster (1810), a southern hymnal that gave voice to slaves, women, and native Americans; and the Presbyterian hymnal tradition in Canada formed by Scottish immigrants. "This anthology is most original in reaching beyond . . . familiar lines of analysis to approach hymnody from various oblique angles rooted in religious history, sociology, theology, and evangelical studies." --Mel Piehl, Dean, Christ College, and Professor of Humanities and History, Valparaiso University Edith L. Blumhofer is Director of the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, Professor of History at Wheaton College, and author of Aimee Semple McPherson: Everybody's Sister. Mark A. Noll is McManis Chair of Christian Thought at Wheaton College. Stephen Marini is Elisabeth Luce Moore Professor of Christian Studies at Wellesley College.

This book is dedicated to Jan Kerouac, the late daughter of Jack Kerouac who I knew well in the 60's in Yelapa, Mexico, with the hippies, 30 miles from any road. She lived in a thatched hut next to mine there. I remember seeing later, in the English, Mexico City News, "Jack Kerouac's Daughter, Jan Kerouac, has disappeared, whereabouts unknown." The first poem in the book is a poem I wrote to the spirit of Jan. Here is a small quote from that poem: "We know the significance of us being a piece of the big puzzle but we don't see all the pieces together melded as one demur picture...we seem so separate, but so cock-sure. "Things slip by," don't they Jan? My memory is flashing...this wheel is on fire!" The first chapter of her Memoirs, "Baby Driver," is like a recording tape of everything she had echoed to me in casual conversation. I think she thought things out in plots from the very beginning.

Historically accurate Hymn To The Sun traces three lives through some of ancient Egypt's most turbulent and transitional years:The Pharaoh Akhenaten, the world's first monotheist, whose belief in one God in Egypt's polytheistic society caused a revolution over three thousand years ago and produced his world-classic literary masterpiece Hymn To The Sun that formed the basis for his worship ceremonies to the Aten;Queen Nefertiti, Akhenaten's beautiful and beloved wife who grew up with him and, until the very last, stood by her beleaguered husband;And Aye, the power behind the thrones of four Pharaohs and who helped develop what museums today exhibit as treasured reminders of that era. Successful in various arts, war, politics and power struggles, Aye marched in youth from a poor stonecutter's home in Athribis to become Pharaoh of Egypt and custodian of Akhenaten's and Tutankhamon's treasures.This novel answers questions historians have been asking for centuries: What happened to the Pharaoh Akhenaten? How did he die? And why? What happened after his death to the one-God religion Akhenaten founded? What happened to Nefertiti? And their daughters? Why was the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamon so full of treasure when it was discovered?

Across the United States, Jews come together every week to sing and pray in a wide variety of worship communities. Through this music, made by and for ordinary folk, these worshippers define and re-define their relationship to the continuity of Jewish tradition and the realities of American life. Combining oral history with an analysis of recordings, The Lord's Song in a Strange Land examines this tradition incontemporary Jewish worship and explores the diverse links between the music and both spiritual and cultural identities. Alive with detail, the book focuses on metropolitan Boston and covers the full range of Jewish communities there, from Hasidim to Jewish college students in a transdenominational setting. It documents a remarkably fluid musical tradition, where melodies are often shared, where sources can be as diverse as Sufi chant, Christmas carols, rock and roll, and Israeli popular music, and where the meaning of a song can change from one block to the next.
