The sixth son bears a curse as certain as the seventh son bears a blessing. When Tadhg MacNaughton’s betrothed is ripped from his arms and married to another, he believes the legend is true. Tisa O'Brien's life slams into a downward spiral at the news she is no longer betrothed to the love of her life but to the tanist of a warring, prideful clan with dangerous political aspirations, the Meic Lochlainn. She faces her destiny with all the strength and dignity of her Irish heritage despite dealing with a husband who resents her, fighting off the lustful advances of her father-in-law, Aodh, and longing for the husband of her heart. Tadhg MacNaughton makes a deal with the devil to ensure the survival of his clan as he is commanded to fight with Aodh who envisions himself the new Brian Boru, High King of Eire. Up close and personal, Tadhg must witness his true love's marriage and remain silent even as it rips him apart. When a sinister plot to over throw King William of England led by the exiled Leofrid Godwin and Clan Meic Lochlainn comes to light, Tadhg is faced with saving his clan or endangering his sister and her Norman husband.
Download or read book The Seventh Son PDF or another Format written by Reay Tannahill and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-02-28 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A superb historical novel about Richard III, the notorious hunchback king whose burial site was recently uncovered, which will appeal to fans of Josephine Tey's THE DAUGHTER OF TIME, Philippa Gregory's THE KINGMAKER'S DAUGHTER, and readers of Hilary Mantel. At the heart of this stunning novel is the complex human being known to history as Richard III, a king whose reign is darkened by the murder of the young Princes in the Tower, but who also found a touching love with the woman he married, and possessed immense courage. As goes the old adage 'history is written by the victors', so Richard III's own story was corrupted by the spokesman of the Tudor regime, William Shakespeare. And yet here is a man who inspired loyalty and hatred in almost equal measure, until at last the implacable enmity of one woman brought about his downfall. In this classic novel, the paradox of England's most enigmatic king is vividly brought to life. It is a family drama in the grand tradition, a tale of brother against brother, cousin against cousin, of love, hate and intrigue, of women inescapably entangled in the fates of their men, and of a mystery that has exercised people's minds for more than five hundred years.

This book was released on 2021-12-08 with total page 146 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Madelina is the youngest daughter of a Norman conqueror and a woman of power. Her own power is insignificant enough in her eyes that she trains to be a healer under the expert tutelage of her mother. When a child is brought to the castle where she lives, she knows she doesn’t have the skills to heal him, and her mother’s powers—and her own—will need to be revealed to a handsome knight. Alexander Lain is the seventh son of a seventh son, and as such he has luck on his side in everything he does. When he finds a peasant child burning with fever, her parents burning in a hovel nearby, he takes the child, hoping to find someone who can heal her. He’s pointed toward the castle and Lady Lina, and he takes the child there, finding it convenient that his errand was taking him to the same place. What he sees in his first hour in the castle astounds him, but it doesn’t keep him from an attraction for the young lady there. Will he be able to convince her—and her father—she’s meant to be his bride? Or will his luck finally run out? *Note this romance contains a mild sex scene*

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ghanbandra is a supernatural suspense thriller, foretelling the doomsday prophesies. Centering on a very wealthy satellite business company, the story tells of the owner's quest for women and power on a global scale. Murder, rape, and domination his goal in life. Tormented by dreams of the past, future, and present. Never knowing which will occur and when? His wife's early departure leaves him in the company of his beautiful secretary. She has her own fashion house, and is wanted desperately by one of her male models. A beautiful nineteen-year nanny looks after his twelve-year old son. The businessman wanting to bed her at his first opportunity. A seventh son of a seventh son, so too is his youngest son, who has constant visitations from his dead mother. All of his other six sons left him to work abroad, believing he murdered his wife for insurance money to keep the ailing company afloat. The superpowers gather together to try and find out why a star in the heavens, millions of miles from earth, is pulling on the axis of the earth causing massive gravitational destabilization. The Star continues to vibrate sending out massive magnetic force fields, that are pulling more and more on the magnetic core of our planet. The subterranean plates two thousand miles under the oceans are distorting and overheating from the magnetic pull from the star, which can unleash millions and millions of tons of molten lava into the oceans, thus burning our planet if the plates cannot be stopped from magnetically turning on themselves. Two rogue nuclear submarines under the poles, threaten to overheat from the intensity of the oceans water temperature, melting the polar caps and flooding the world. The super powers consult the Vatican having heard of the doomsday prophesies from the valley of the king recently unearthed. The codes of the prophecies cannot be broken in full. The prophecies tell of the doomsday Armageddon, three thousand years old, written in old Arabic and mathematical codes not seen on this earth before. Decoders and mathematicians work day and night in the deep Vatican crepts trying desperately to find answers of what lies ahead for mankind. What has been decoded tells of twelve girls, all over the globe who may be hosts to the coming of the antichrist child. The world will end in twelve days, if the codes cannot be broken, and the host child found together with the man who will carry the antichrist seed. Twelve days tick by slowly as the Vatican desperately try and find each girl in turn. Terrible exorcisms are conducted, as Cardinal after Cardinal is butchered. One girl's supernatural powers are attempted to be harnessed by one superpower, leading to a vengeful bloodbath. Once the codes are broken, a seventh son of a seventh son, is the only one who can do battle against the forces of evil, with the ancient rites and texts of the prophet David, and above all the final rite of exorcism used three thousand years ago, still undecoded, still intact, still in the casket of the visionaries handed down through the generations from pope to pope. Realizing all is lost, and believing the doomsday prophesy, the superpowers agree to help the Vatican and do all in their power to find out why the star is pulling on our axis, and why it is vibrating, so as to pinpoint where on earth this deed of insemination will be committed. All communications systems around the globe are shut down, so as the magnetic effects of the star will not turn nations against nation with the release of nuclear weapons from failed computer systems. The world will be pulled from it's axis by the Star, if the magnetic pull cannot be stabilized, sending the earth into outer space in a freezing ball of ice, or the world will incinerate by the overheating of the subterranean plates, or the world will be flooded by the melting of the ice caps. Day by day the Catholics do battle against the forces of evil, in their quest for the one host girl. Day by day t
Download or read book Men and Bears PDF or another Format written by AA.VV. and published by Accademia University Press. This book was released on 2020-01-23 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The time of Carnival represents a “wild” time at the end of winter and pointing to the beginning of a new season. It is characterized by the irruption of border figures, animal masks, characters which recall the world of the dead and which bring within themselves the germ of a vital force, of the energy that produces the reawakening of nature and announces the growth and fertility of the new crops. This wild domain shows itself under the shapes of a contiguity between human and animal: the costumes, the masks, refer to a world in which the characteristics of the human and those of the animal are fused and intertwined. Among these figures, in particular, emerge those of the Wild Man, the human being who takes on animal-like attributes and aspects, and of the Bear, the animal that, more than all the others, gets as close as possible to the human and seems to reflect a deformed image of it. Such symbolic images come from far off times and places to tell a story that belongs to our common origins. The bear assumes attributes and functions alike in very different cultural contexts, such as the Sámi of Finland or North-American hunter-gatherers, and represents a boundary between the world of nature and the human world, between the domain of animals and the difficult construction of humanity: a process continued for centuries, perhaps millennia, and which cannot still be said complete.
