On the heels of the wildly popular "The Darkest Powers" series comes the first in another supernatural YA trilogy from New York Times bestelling author Kelley Armstrong. Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can't find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students — for every grade from kindergarten to twelve. Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won't go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret — and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark. From the Hardcover edition.

A USA Today bestselling novel Leda Stowe loves living on her tiny island off the California coast, taking care of rescued exotic animals. But her peaceful existence is interrupted one night when a gorgeous man with a sword appears out of nowhere in her lion's enclosure. Instead of fearing for his life, the man has a conversation with the lion and casually walks out to face Leda—all six foot and change of him, wearing nothing but jeans riding low on his hips. He exudes more life magic than Leda has ever seen, easily erasing the wards she's put on her island home and imposing his own. He is Hunter, one of the Immortal brothers, jerked away from his snug bed by the Calling spell, thrown here when the spell was broken. He knows there's something wrong with the world, but he'd rather hole up on this quiet island with the beautiful Leda, and let the world deal with it. But too soon Leda and Hunter, and the lion Mukasa, must journey to the mainland to join Hunter's brothers for the final battle against evil, to rescue the trapped Tain, which will call for Hunter to make a sacrifice that threatens to break him. This is a full-length novel (95,000 words).

Rethinking the Irish Diaspora

After The Gathering

This book provides scholarly perspectives on a range of timely concerns in Irish diaspora studies. It offers a focal point for fresh interchanges and theoretical insights on questions of identity, Irishness, historiography and the academy’s role in all of these. In doing so, it chimes with the significant public debates on Irish and Irish emigrant identities that have emerged from Ireland’s The Gathering initiative (2013) and that continue to reverberate throughout the Decade of Centenaries (2012-2023) in Ireland, North and South. In ten chapters of new research on key areas of concern in this field, the book sustains a conversation centred on three core questions: what is diaspora in the Irish context and who does it include/exclude? What is the view of Ireland and Northern Ireland from the diaspora? How can new perspectives in the academy engage with a more rigorous and probing theorisation of these concerns? This thought-provoking work will appeal to students and scholars of history, geography, literature, sociology, tourism studies and Irish studies.

Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It

In recent years, Americans have woken up to the reality that human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. But what most still do not understand is that neither is it something that just happens to "other people" such as runaways or the disenfranchised. The human trafficker is no respecter of faith, education, or socioeconomic status, and even kids who are raised in solid families in middle and upper class suburbs can fall victim. Likewise, labor trafficking happens in our cities, neighborhoods, and rural areas. Through true stories and years of boots-on-the-ground experience, including at the Super Bowl, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches readers everything they need to know about human trafficking in the United States and what they can do to join the fight against it. She helps concerned parents, friends, teachers, law enforcement, government officials, and other leaders understand all forms of trafficking, identify risk factors, and take practical steps to keep their loved ones and neighbors safe from predators.

Meetings in Higher Space

Bill Gammill remembers what happened that quiet spring night: he remembers watching a colossal spaceship descend on a field where hundreds of people were waiting, and suddenly finding himself engaged in a baffling, exciting, otherworldly meeting, an off-world gathering of humans in "higher space." But was this just a wild dream, a hallucination, or does he remember because he truly was part of a fantastic, but very real, experience? This is what he remembers: On that wild night, that astonishing night, extraterrestrials related the fantastic but no less true history and destiny of the Earth and its inhabitants: the origins of human life on Earth, the existence of nonhuman life in the Pleiades and Sirius star systems, and the work of the legendary "Great White Brotherhood." To this day, Gammill still feels "on board" perpetually linked with this mysterious but exalted gathering of humans and aliens, a kind of galactic summit. It took him months to make some sense of his experience--the words, pictures, teachings, and the nature of the beings he encountered. The Gathering contains Gammill's original account of that experience and the revelations given to the gathering about humankind, its origins, its current possibilities and likely future--including the end times, the apocalypse, and our interaction with celestial beings. The information in this book is a wake-up call to our planet: The gathering is assembling and the future is now.
