Book Summary:

A heart-stopping adventure that defies time and space--New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu calls it "an incredibly intricate, brilliantly paced, masterfully written journey." Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time traveler from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in ancient Rome, Far's very existence defies the laws of nature. All he's ever wanted was to explore history for himself, but after failing his entrance exam into the government program, Far will have to settle for a position on the black market-captaining a time-traveling crew to steal valuables from the past. During a routine heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl named Eliot who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Eliot has secrets-big ones-that will affect Far's life from beginning to end. Armed with the knowledge that history is not as steady as it seems, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to set things right before the clock runs out.

Book Summary:

Only a long dead and quarantined orb of darkness remains where the once miraculous sapphire called Earth orbited its home star, Sol. All of the sovereign nations perished alongside Terra, as interplanetary megaCorporations wrested control of the Solar System-reducing their employees to serfdom and slavery. The auspicious commoners serve one of the 512 Solaran megaCorporations, while the remainder becomes rejectamenta on the auction block. The corporatocracy now strictly enforces a revived caste system and individual freedoms no longer exist. The privilege of liberty lost its place-even its meaning--in the thousands of Extraterran colonies, from Mercurius to the Kuiper Belt. The University, once hailed as the savior of humanity and civilization, now viciously controls the Solaran populace at the behest of the avaricious megaCorporations. Manipulation via selective proscription, torture, and imprisonment never fail to effect the desired result. To this end, the University utilizes the cunning and deadly triOperativ assassins of SpecSci. Uriens, one of these agents skilled in the tradecraft of database hacking, interrogation, and assassination has lost the zealotry instilled in him since the impressionable age of eight orbits. Now driven by infinite remorse and sorrow, Uriens will make the only decision possible other than death-to find a new path. He will enter into an epic quest spanning Sol entire--in an attempt to rescue the ethos of humanity, return freedom to the Solar System, and restore his own battered mind, body, and soul. Will Uriens and his cohort succeed in their perilous ordeals, or merely worsen humanity’s plight--as well as their own?

Book Summary:

IF YOU DON'T KNOW SIMON SCARROW, YOU DON'T KNOW ROME! The Sunday Times bestseller. INVICTUS is a gripping, authentic and exciting novel of the Roman army from bestselling author Simon Scarrow. Not to be missed by readers of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell. It is AD 54. The soldiers of the Roman army patrol a growing Empire, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, from the Atlantic to the banks of the Nile. Rome brutally enforces its rule, and its legions are the most efficient and aggressive fighting force in the world. Two battle-scarred veterans of this army, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro, have survived years of campaigning in Britannia and have been recalled to Rome. Their time in the teeming, dangerously political city is short, and soon they are travelling with the Praetorian Guard to Spain, a restless colony where simmering tension in the face of Roman rule is aggravated by bitter rivalry amongst the natives. The challenges that face two old friends and their comrades in arms are unlike any they have seen before - in a land that declares itself unconquerable...

Book Summary:

Read the book that inspired the Academy Award and Golden Globe winning 2009 film INVICTUS featuring Morgan Freeman and Matt Daymon, directed by Clint Eastwood. Beginning in a jail cell and ending in a rugby tournament- the true story of how the most inspiring charm offensive in history brought South Africa together. After being released from prison and winning South Africa's first free election, Nelson Mandela presided over a country still deeply divided by fifty years of apartheid. His plan was ambitious if not far-fetched: use the national rugby team, the Springboks-long an embodiment of white-supremacist rule-to embody and engage a new South Africa as they prepared to host the 1995 World Cup. The string of wins that followed not only defied the odds, but capped Mandela's miraculous effort to bring South Africans together again in a hard-won, enduring bond.

Book Summary:

Hispaniát megszállták, de még nem hódították meg, és továbbra is veszélyes kihívást jelent Róma számára Kr. u. 54. A római hadsereg katonáinak egyre nagyobb, a Földközi-tengertől az Északi-tengerig, az Atlanti-óceántól a Nílusig kiterjedő birodalom határait kell megvédeniük. Róma könyörtelenül rákényszeríti a leigázott népekre az uralmát, legiói a világ leghatékonyabb és legagresszívabb haderejét alkotják. Ennek a seregnek két harcedzett veteránja Cato praefectus és Macro centurio, akiket többévi harc után rendelnek vissza Britanniából Rómába. Csak kevés időt tölthetnek a forrongó, veszélyesen átpolitizált városban: hamarosan útnak kell indulniuk a praetorianus gárdával a lázongó Hispaniába, ahol a római uralommal szembeni ellenszenvet csak tovább fokozza a helyi törzsek közötti keserű versengés. A két régi jó barát és bajtársaik soha nem kerültek még szembe ilyen kihívással – ráadásul olyan földön, amely meghódíthatatlannak tartja magát... Az Invictus a Sas-sorozat 15. része. Macro és Cato a római politikai elit legmagasabb köreiig terjedő hatalmi harc közepébe kerülve soha nem látott veszélyekkel kénytelen szembenézni.

Book Summary:

This early work by William Ernest Henley was originally published in 1903 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'In Hospital' is a collection of poetry he wrote during a three year stay at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and is notable as one of the earliest examples of free verse written in England. William Ernest Henley was born on 23rd August 1849, in Gloucester, England. In 1867, Henley passed the Oxford Local Schools Examination and set off to London to establish himself as a journalist. Unfortunately, his career was frequently interrupted by long stays in hospital due to a diseased right foot which he refused to have amputated. Henley's best-remembered work is his poem “Invictus”, written in 1888. It is a passionate and defiant poem, reportedly written as a demonstration of resilience following the amputation of his leg.

Book Summary:

Clint Eastwood (b. 1930) is the only popular American dramatic star to have shaped his own career almost entirely through films of his own producing, frequently under his own direction; no other dramatic star has directed himself so often. He is also one of the most prolific active directors, with thirty-three features to his credit since 1971. As a star, he is often recalled primarily for two early roles—the “Man with No Name” of three European-made Westerns, and the uncompromising cop “Dirty” Harry Callahan. But on his own as a director, Eastwood has steered a remarkable course. A film industry insider who works through the established Hollywood system and respects its traditions, he remains an outsider by steadfastly refusing to heed cultural and aesthetic trends in film production and film style. His films as director have examined an eclectic variety of themes, ranging from the artist's life to the nature of heroism, while frequently calling into question the ethos of masculinity and his own star image. Yet they have remained accessible to a popular audience worldwide. With two Best Director and two Best Picture Oscars to his credit, Eastwood now ranks among the most highly honored living filmmakers. These interviews range over the more than four decades of Eastwood's directorial career, with an emphasis on practical filmmaking issues and his philosophy as a filmmaker. Nearly a third are from European sources—several appearing here in English for the first time.

Her story begins on a train. The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, they host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The prize? An audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball in Tokyo. Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele's twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move. But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission? From the author of The Walled City comes a fast-paced and innovative novel that will leave you breathless.

Book Summary:

Paul 'Warlord' Warren was an Australian Muay Thai kick-boxing champion who was used to the physically punishing world of martial arts at its highest level. But nothing could prepare him for the torment he would face in the Australian army. One month after he arrived in Afghanistan as a soldier in the ADF, an IED exploded, tearing off his right leg and instantly killing his mate, Private Ben Ranaudo. It was 18 July 2009 and Ben was the campaign's eleventh fatality. Private Warren's life was saved by the quick work of his battalion, who got him a helicopter within 16 minutes for surgery. Paul was flown to Germany and then back to Australia, where he received treatment for his injuries in Brisbane. Although he had only known his partner, Dearne, for four months before his deployment, she moved to Brisbane to assist his recovery. There were many dark times as Paul struggled with the shattering effects of PTSD, and guilt and grief over the death of his mate Benny. At his lowest ebb, Paul thought about taking his own life, as so many other soldiers in similar circumstances continue to do. Recovery was a slow and at times desperately painful process, but the discipline and toughness he'd learned from his martial arts background and the fierce love of Dearne helped him mend. The Fighter is a story of courage, determination and love that will move all who read it.

As its membership was largely drawn from the ranks of the military, its spread, but not its popularity is attributable largely to military deployments and re-deployments. Although mithraists left behind no written archival evidence, there is an abundance of iconographic finds. The only characteristic common to all Mithraic temples were the fundamental architecture of their design, and the cult image of Mithras slaying a bull. How were these two features so faithfully transmitted through the Empire by a non-centralized, non-hierarchical religious movement? The Minds of Mithraists: Historical and Cognitive Studies in the Roman Cult of Mithras addresses these questions as well as the relationship of Mithraism to Christianity, explanations of the significance of the tauroctony and of the rituals enacted in the mithraea, and explanations for the spread of Mithraism (and for its resistance in a few places). The unifying theme throughout is an investigation of the 'mind' of those engaged in the cult practices of this widespread ancient religion. These investigations represent traditional historical methods as well as more recent studies employing the insights of the cognitive sciences, demonstrating that cognitive historiography is a valuable methodological tool.
