Explanation of the Book:

Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you'd never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd – He's Just Not That Into You? The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn't heed their mother's advice or haven't read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter's best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul's brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers. Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure – of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul's story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp. They can't move on because they are stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are all forced by circumstances to change.Show More Show Less

On the borderlands of the Kingdom of Deran, a young forest scout named Dar Cabot fights off an attack by goblin warriors and finds the ruins of a village, its homes burned and people slain. Eager for justice for the townsfolk, he enlists the help of an unlikely combination of allies: a halfling spy with a hidden past, the adopted son of a famous wizard, two half-elven sisters from a enemy land, a widowed priestess of the Elven god and a seemingly laid-back warrior with secrets of his own. Together the new-found companions battle against the shadowy cult of the Ja'al and its inhuman allies in the dark caverns and green woodlands of the frontier. Their search leads them on a journey to powerful magic, long-lost ruins, and chilling discoveries of evils from a bygone age.

Raneous, is the young son of the great Palladon, the swiftest and strongest of the Heavenly Host winged horses. Full of youthful idealism, he is eager to begin his training against the Darkland demons. Finally, after many months of flight training, he accompanies an angelic scouting party on a short mission to the miserable realm of the Borderlands.

Utterly lost, seemingly abandoned, and unable to fly in the mortal world, Raneous begins his quest to return to the heavenly realm. Through his friendship with a troubled boy, Brian, Raneous learns to fight the demons lurking in the shadows, but also the darkness of the mind. Can he trust the goodness of what he has been taught? Has the High King abandoned him? Why has no one come for him? Join Raneous and Brian as they battle dark forces of evil, learn the true secrets for victory, and step into the power and freedom of becoming a true servant of the High King. Horse lovers, and warriors of all ages will love to take this coming-of-age journey with the beloved winged colt, Raneous.

Release: 2016-03-09
Editor: Routledge
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Central to the idea of a perfect society is the idea that communities must be strong and bound together with shared ideologies. However, while this may be true, rarely are the individuals that comprise a community given primacy of place as central to a strong communal theory. This volume moves away from the dominant, current macro-level theorising on the subject of identity and its relationship to and with globalising trends, focusing instead on the individual’s relationship with utopia so as to offer new interpretive approaches for engaging with and examining utopian individuality. Interdisciplinary in scope and bringing together work from around the world, The Individual and Utopia enquires after the nature of the utopian as citizen, demonstrating the inherent value of making the individual central to utopian theorizing and highlighting the methodologies necessary for examining the utopian individual. The various approaches employed reveal what it is to be an individual yoked by the idea of citizenship and challenge the ways that we have traditionally been taught to think of the individual as citizen. As such, it will appeal to scholars with interests in social theory, philosophy, literature, cultural studies, architecture, and feminist thought, whose work intersects with political thought, utopian theorizing, or the study of humanity or human nature.
