Summary : On March 10th, when Athena paid a study visit in Turkey, Sakarya University, after the morning conference she sent the last message to Sanny: "Happy birthday. Let the magic combination of three colour your existence and space. " He continued on calling her, but she had no wish to answer the calls. She was so grateful to him for all the perception of the world he helped her to experience. She loved him so much for this shake, conversion, awakening. No malice towards him she ever felt. Even pain in her heart seemed to have such a value and spirit. She just blessed him for finding her... That he donated a little time to her. That he shared. Gave her this suffering. That he raised her and led. Holding her hands tight like babys... It was 23rd March, the day, when Sanny wrote his first message on that dating site. It was the same next years March 23rd when Athena said goodbye to Sanny... But only mentally she got apart from him, never in her heart. She hoped them to meet in some deeper space some time... Book also has a Lithuanian version.

Maas called "everything I look for in a fantasy novel." A RUNAWAY WITH A HIDDEN PAST Lydia is a scholar, but books are her downfall when she meddles in the plots of the most powerful man in the Celendor Empire. Her life in danger, she flees west to the far side of the Endless Seas and finds herself entangled in a foreign war where her burgeoning powers are sought by both sides. A COMMANDER IN DISGRACE Killian is Marked by the God of War, but his gifts fail him when the realm under the dominion of the Corrupter invades Mudamora.

Summary : When you look up at a midnight sky, what do you see—mottled stars and a full Moon trying hard to compete with the street lamps for your attention? You might be situated in a city, or its sprawling suburbs, where the ever-present urban glow tends to keep your gaze horizontal, missing out on the beckoning mysteries of the Universe. This Skywriters anthology will change all that. Through the eyes and creativity of people who write about south-eastern inland Australia, we’ll redirect your vision upwards to a brighter Moon, the subtle presence of nearby planets, the cosmic spectacular of our Milky Way galaxy and those celestial bodies even further away. You’ll find inspiring stories, poems and essays by a great diversity of Australians responding to what some have called the ‘Inland Astro-Trail’, which connects rural and remote communities with world-class astronomical observatories such as those at Parkes, Siding Springs and Narrabri. Some skystories are “literary”, others intensely personal, but all are guaranteed to widen your horizons—upwards!

Summary : Max Bowman is a hero for today’s America—mostly because he has absolutely no idea what he’s doing. Years after being tossed on the trash heap by the CIA, Max is just getting by—and fine with it. Who cares if his future is in the rearview mirror? As long as he’s got a Jack Daniels in his hand and his creatively-foul-mouthed singer girlfriend on his arm, why shake things up? Then his old Agency boss shows up with a job that’s way above his paygrade—tracking down the truth about a war hero who was killed in Afghanistan. Because some people think this dead man isn’t so dead. Max treats it as a paycheck and a big fat waste of time. Until that house explodes. And a guy who looks a lot like the hero of a popular ‘60s TV Western puts a target on his forehead. Oh, and then there’s that secret para-military outfit in Montana, which wants to end his assignment in the most unpleasant way possible. It all happens in DARK SKY, a sardonic spin on the traditional thriller and the beginning of Max Bowman’s hilarious and harrowing misadventures.

Summary : Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Steven G. Smith showcases the picturesque Thames River basin, which extends from southern Massachusetts through Connecticut to the Long Island Sound. The river and its watershed help define the borders of a valley that is unique among its East Coast neighbors, considered to be the last place where dark night sky can be viewed between Washington, D.C. and the Boston metro area. Locals like to call the area the “Quiet Corner” or the “Last Green Valley.” In 1994, the U.S. Congress designated parts of the area as a Natural Heritage Corridor because it is one of the last remaining stretches of green in the area and boasts some of the largest unbroken forests in southern New England. This full-color documentary photo essay explores this Atlantic gem, through the faces of the people and the landscapes. An excellent gift and an educational resource, the book includes a foreword by noted outdoor writer Steve Grant.

Summary : In the aftermath of a devastating clash between gods and men, two unlikely allies―one immortal and one human―must band together to survive in the sequel to the epic fantasy debut The Song of All. The war between men and immortals that raged across the frozen Northland of Davvieana has ended. For men, the balance of power between Believer and Brethren, between honoring the gods and honoring the sword, has shifted to favor priests over Hunters. But it is the legacy of one man’s love for his son that shapes the lives of all who survived. While Irjan, the once-legendary immortal hunter, has saved his son’s life, he cannot save Marnej from the men who will make him a killer, nor can he save the immortal girl he’d promised to protect from the secret of her birth. Raised by Irjan among the immortals, Dárja has been trained to fight by a man who once hunted her kind. Prisoner among the humans, her hatred for them is challenged by the chance to give Irjan what he has always wanted?his son Marnej returned to him. Together, Marnej and Dárja, human and immortal, must find a way to trust one another if they are to live long enough to learn the truth behind the secrets and lies that have forged their lives.

Summary : The conflict between aircraft and U-boat in the Second World War was a desperate one, fought nowhere near as fiercely as over the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic. It was no easy matter finding U-boats and if they then decided to remain on the surface and fight back, the on-coming aircraft was a large target to determined gunners. The numerous first hand accounts from both sides in this book, accompanied by photos, give an insight into how Allied airmen and German submarines fought each other in the hostile skies above a deep cold sea.

Summary : One of the aviator's greatest challenges - and fears - is flying from an aircraft carrier in foul weather. With only instruments to guide them, pilots are under constant pressure to keep their aircraft under control. The author of this book knows all about those challenges. A veteran naval aviator, Charles Brown participated in many of the operations he writes about, and he helped develop the tactics that made the operations possible. His book addresses a significant but frequently overlooked part of carrier history: the ability of carrier combat units to fly and fight at night and in any weather condition.

Summary : The way mankind has responded to the dark sky throughout history has determined humanity's scientific - and cultural - progress. In this way, astronomy is in some way connected to everything. This fascinating theme is explored in Dark Sky Legacy.George Reed examines the powerful influence of the cosmos on cultural and societal development, reviewing mankind's historical propensity for projecting human experience into a cosmic framework and the centuries-old relationship between astronomy and astrology, the result of which is the emergence of the age of science. Since then, he writes, the purpose of astronomy has been to observe celestial objects for the advancement of scientific knowledge, while astrology deals only in the possibility that celestial bodies influence events on Earth.Reed asserts that the movement away from an inward-looking, meaningful cosmos toward an outward-gazing, impersonal one is a shift that has had enormous repercussions in every aspect of human life. He points out that astrology provides a scheme in which the believer is an integral component of an animistic, cyclical universe. Conversely, the pursuit of science and astronomy is a mechanistic, linear activity, which seeks extrinsic answers in terms of precise relationships between sense perceptions.Dark Sky Legacy probes the divergent approaches to the universe that compel individuals and cultures to pursue astrology or astronomy, the intuitive or the analytical. Blending modern science, ancient science, mythology, history, literature, and naked-eye astronomy, and spiced with fascinating detail about astronomy, astrology, celestial mythology, and calendar development, the book is an engrossing study of the profound impact of mankind's relationship with the universe.
