Frostfire (The Kanin Chronicles # 1 ) Paperback – January 6, 2015
by Amanda Hocking. St. Martin's First

Hidden deep in the heart of a snow-covered wilderness lies the secret kingdom of the Kanin―a magical realm as beautiful as it is treacherous…
Bryn Aven has never fit into Kanin society. Her blond hair and blue eyes set her apart as an outsider―a half-blood unable to hold a respectable rank. But she's determined to prove herself as a loyal protector of the kingdom she loves. Her dream is to become a member of the King's elite guard, and she's not going to let anything stand in her way…not even her growing feelings for her boss, Ridley Dresden. A relationship between them is strictly forbidden, but Bryn can't fight her attraction to him. And she's beginning to think he feels it too.
Meanwhile, there's an attack on the kingdom―one that will test Bryn's strength like never before. Finally, she has the chance to confront Konstantin Black, the traitor who tried to kill her father years ago. It's up to Bryn to put a stop to him before he strikes again. But is she willing to risk everything to protect a kingdom that doesn't accept her for who she really is? And when her mission brings her closer to Ridley, will she be able to deny her heart?

Druids
Their Mystical Rites Ruled The Celtic World. Morgan Llywelyn. 1st Ballantine 1993

Below copied comments regarding this edition.

The story follows young Ainvar from his intrusion into a sacrifice (which is also not what it seems-- the human sacrifices come willingly, and drink a tonic the night before, so that the knife is just a ritual) to bring spring on-- his adoption by the aging chief Druid, his "man-making" in which he meets his soul-friend, Rix-- Vercengetorix-- and ultimately his involvement in the dream of forming a great alliance among the Celtic tribes to resist the incursion of Caesar.

On the whole this is an engrossing story with a sense of historical accuracy, and a must read for anyone interested in Celts and ancient Rome. Llewelyn's prose is a treat and she writes engaging characters throughout.

At the end of this book, Llewelyn includes a brief bibliography-- complete with ancient sources as well as contemporary accounts-- and the attention to detail shows in the book.

Very good with slight bumped corners and edgewear.

Even when read to oneself, a good story can be entertainment that stirs the mind and perhaps makes being alone a richer experience. This collection of stories is offered in that spirit. As a fireside reading companion, its mysterious flavor of the north woods might help one appreciate the warmth and security of an evening fire just a bit more.The stories impart a deeper appreciation of the very special, very beautiful land of the North Country. They express a profound respect for this vast and lonely place which is as harsh as it is fragile and unique in character and history Richly illustrated with the author's drawings.

Very good to excellent.

THEIR LOVE WAS CHAINED BYA LEGACY OF BITTERNESS Veterinarian Kit Shannon was struggling to build her dream: a game reserve on the African land she'd inherited. But opposing her was Devin Michaels, as bold and rugged as magnificent Mount Kenya. Devin had immediately branded Kit as a beautiful manipulator--just like her mother, whose seductive ways had destroyed his father. Haunted by her mother's betrayal, Devin regarded Kit through a haze of stormy mistrust. Yet between them flared a passion so intense that it rocked Kit to the core. She hoped they could amend the mistakes of the past, but feared they were only repeating them.

Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle

Summary

The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

Animal Farm by George Orwell
A Fairy Story

Penquin Books 1979

When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless élite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another.

'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,' wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote the novel at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished; its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain's ally, led to the book being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell's simple, tragic fable has since become a world-famous classic.
