Quand Games of Thrones rencontre Hunger Games ! Dans un monde où l'armée a pris le pouvoir, l'obscurantisme domine, mais deux adolescents vont s'unir pour tenter de renverser ceux qui ont imposé ce règne de la force. Autrefois le royaume était savant et cultivé. Il était partagé entre les Scholars (ceux qui détiennent le savoir) et les Martials (les soldats qui tirent leur puissance de la force brute). Jusqu'au jour où les Martials ont pris violemment le dessus et écrasé les Scholars. Désormais, quiconque est trouvé avec un livre ou en train d'écrire risque la prison ou la mort. Le royaume a sombré dans l'obscurantisme et les Scholars ont peu à peu oublié leurs connaissances... Laia, une Scholar de 16 ans, voit sa famille assassinée car son frère, qui détenait un carnet mystérieux, est accusé de trahison. Pour venger sa famille et empêcher que son frère ne soit exécuté, Laia rejoint la résistance. Celle-ci l'envoie en mission d'espionnage dans l'école militaire de Blackcliff qui forme l'élite de l'armée, où elle devient vite l'esclave de la terrible directrice. De son côté, Elias, jeune Martial de 20 ans, fils de la directrice et possible futur empereur, rêve d'échapper à son destin tant il hait les exactions du pouvoir en place... et sa mère despotique. Dans cette école-prison, les chemins de Laia et d'Elias se croisent. Ensemble, ils vont tenter de gagner leur liberté... et rejoindre la rébellion.

As one of the leading figures in New Testament studies, Robert W. Wall has continually focused on the function of the New Testament as a "canonical” or authoritative collection of writings, reflecting not only the content and essence of the Church's emerging faith, but also the life to that community of followers of Jesus who eventually became widely known as “Christians.” In the vein of his defining work, The New Testament as Canon: A Reader in Canonical Criticism, Wall now reflects upon his more recent body of study. Always emphasizing 'canonical conversation', Wall had collected and revised some of his most important essays of the last two decades, including Unity of Luke and Acts (2010), The Unifying Theology of the Catholic Epistles (2003-13) and Images of Church in John's Revelation (2015). Completed by a new essay on the canonical approach to the Paratext of Hebrews, and with vital "introductory notes" for each chapter that highlight both Wall's revisions and his response to critical reception, this book is yet one more asset in Wall's continuing pursuit of the canonical function of the church's Scriptures.

This is the high-octane, no-holds-barred, true story of a bad guy turned good who busted open one of the most violent outlaw motorcycle gangs in history. George Rowe’s gritty and harrowing story offers not only a glimpse into the violent world of the motorcycle outlaw, but a gripping tale of self-sacrifice and human redemption that would be the stuff of great fiction—if it weren’t all true. Rowe had been a drug dealer, crystal meth addict, barroom brawler, and convicted felon, but when he witnessed the Vagos brutally and senselessly beat his friend over a pool game, everything changed. Rowe decided to pay back his Southern California hometown for the sins of his past by taking down the gang that was terrorizing it. He volunteered himself as an undercover informant for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and vowed to dismantle the brotherhood from the inside out, becoming history’s first private citizen to voluntarily infiltrate an outlaw motorcycle gang for the U.S. government. As “Big George,” a full-patched member of the Vagos, Rowe spent three brutal years juggling a double life—riding, fighting, and nearly dying alongside the brothers who he secretly hoped to put away for good. During this time, Rowe also became entwined in a tumultuous relationship with a struggling addict named Jenna, never once revealing that he was actually working for the Feds. The road to redemption was not an easy ride. Rowe lost everything: his family, his business, his home—even his identity. To this day, under protection by the U.S. government, Rowe still looks over his shoulder, keeping watch for the brothers he put behind bars. They’ve vowed to search for him until the day they die.

“A thrilling action ride of a book” (The New York Times Book Review)—from Jerry Bruckheimer in theaters everywhere January 19, 2018—the New York Times bestselling, true-life account of a US Special Forces team deployed to dangerous, war-ridden Afghanistan in the weeks following 9/11. Previously published as Horse Soldiers, 12 Strong is the dramatic account of a small band of Special Forces soldiers who secretly entered Afghanistan following 9/11 and rode to war on horses against the Taliban. Outnumbered forty to one, they pursued the enemy army across the mountainous Afghanistan terrain and, after a series of intense battles, captured the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The bone-weary American soldiers were welcomed as liberators as they rode into the city. Then the action took a wholly unexpected turn. During a surrender of six hundred Taliban troops, the Horse Soldiers were ambushed by the would-be POWs. Dangerously overpowered, they fought for their lives in the city’s immense fortress, Qala-i-Janghi, or the House of War. At risk were the military gains of the entire campaign: if the soldiers perished or were captured, the entire effort to outmaneuver the Taliban was likely doomed. “A riveting story of the brave and resourceful American warriors who rode into Afghanistan after 9/11 and waged war against Al Qaeda” (Tom Brokaw), Doug Stanton’s account touches the mythic. The soldiers on horses combined ancient strategies of cavalry warfare with twenty-first-century aerial bombardment technology to perform a seemingly impossible feat. Moreover, their careful effort to win the hearts of local townspeople proved a valuable lesson for America’s ongoing efforts in Afghanistan. With “spellbinding...action packed prose...The book reads more like a novel than a military history...the Horse Soldier’s secret mission remains the US military’s finest moment in what has since arguably been a muddled war” (USA TODAY).

After three years of planning, Kirkland College opened in 1968 as a small, liberal arts college for women, coordinate to Hamilton College in upstate New York. The author was the first, last and only President. Planners envisioned a female counterpart of Hamilton which could introduce women without distressing alumni, and allow needed curricular expansion. But Kirklands advisors and administrators wanted innovation. Its openness, inclusiveness and curricular choices affronted many Hamiltonians. When, at last, Kirkland sought further support to undertake a necessary endowment campaign, Hamilton let the young college go under in a contentious and wasteful way. It closed in 1978.

This is a complete, comprehensive Texas Hold'em book. It is far, far more analytical of the subtleties of a specific form of Poker, Texas Hold'em than the usual poker books. It doesn't just claim you can win at poker, it provides the skills needed to dominate the game. Any table, any opponent. Pros don't play with a game plan, they understand the game better than amateurs. Reading this book is like playing 500,000 hands of Texas Hold'em because it explains it all. Well worth the investment at ten times the price. Read and profit from it. NOTE: There was a card corruption in the latest version with the new custom cards (the ones with skulls) in the PDF starting at page 60ish. It did not raise alarms when uploaded. I'm sorry Google didn't catch it and neither did I. If you paid for a pdf book with corrupted cards please show me your receipt and I will personally send you one with the old cards until I can get the latest SNAFU corrected. The current PDF has the old cards. You can get the epub version, which works on lean pub but for some reason Google won't approve, elsewhere... NOTE2: I resolved the problem no help from Google. The current version has correct cards. ISBN: 9780993819704

A master manipulator loses his heart. A reformed bad guy falls hard for the “good” girl. And a desperate genius will do anything to win back the woman of his dreams…Wilde adventures are waiting in the Wilde Ways, Volume 4 box set. The set includes the following full-length titles: SAY I DO, ROMAN WILL FALL, and THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY. In the mood for romance, danger, humor, fun times, and thrills? Then it’s time to cozy up with these books. SAY I DO (Wilde Ways, Book 10) Dexter Ryan is smug. Arrogant. Manipulative. And he is also…Lacey Amari’s new partner. Well, her partner on one case. A case she doesn’t even want to take, but when Dex—CIA super operative and all around puppet-master—basically blackmails her, she has no choice. Then he asks her the big question…Will you marry me? The proposal isn’t real. It’s just an undercover assignment. Dex doesn’t work well with others and handling a case with a partner in close proximity—as in 24/7 close—isn’t his normal style. He’s pulled Lacey into the investigation because she is smart and resourceful, and maybe because he knows a secret about her that could prove to be very useful to him. After all, Dex uses people all the time. It’s his thing. Yet the more he is around her, the idea of using Lacey suddenly doesn’t seem like such a good plan. But getting her into his bed? Stellar idea. ROMAN WILL FALL (Wilde Ways, Book 11) They’ve been partners for barely a week, and Roman Smith (if that even was his real last name!) is already driving Harper Crane absolutely insane. His list of faults is a mile long. Roman is secretive, controlling, and far too sexy. Okay, the sexiness doesn’t matter. It can’t matter. What matters is that Roman never listens to orders, he is far too quiet and intense, and Harper is pretty sure that he is up to some seriously shady side business. Roman has spent his life in the darkness. He is far too well acquainted with evil, and working at Wilde? Well, joining the security and protection firm is supposed to be the first step to turning things around in his world. The first step to becoming someone new. But some habits are hard to shake. And Roman knows that his way too beautiful trainer, Harper, is already suspicious of him. Yeah, so…she is right to be suspicious. Until recently, he has been the bad guy in the story. His list of past deeds could give anyone nightmares. Too bad he only wants to give Harper sweet dreams. THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY (Wilde Ways, Book 12) Antony Kyle can’t believe what’s happening to him. First, Ella Webb—the head of security at his gaming company—quits on him. Then…she kisses him as if she’s never wanted anyone more. They spend one incredible night together—a night that brands him to his core—and he wakes to find her gone. Gone. No, not happening. Antony is not about to lose her now. Not when he’s been obsessed with her for years. He can’t have a taste and then lose…everything. Antony can’t lose Ella—not when he’s finally had the woman he’s wanted so desperately. But she’s got a new job at Wilde—an elite protection and security firm—and he has to figure out a way to woo her back. So, he hires Wilde. Says that he needs protection. He pulls some strings (because the owner of Wilde happens to owe him about a dozen favors), and Antony gets Ella assigned as his bodyguard. He thinks his plan is brilliant. He’ll have Ella in close proximity again, and Antony is sure that he’ll be able to convince her that they belong together. Except his brilliant plan soon goes to hell when a real threat emerges from the darkness. Now he and Ella have to unmask the enemy they never saw coming, before it’s too late. As they fight to track the bad guy, Antony has to prove to Ella that he can be honest with her, and, if she gives him a shot…he just might be a man she can love. Because if he loses her again, Antony knows there will be no second chances.
