Summary:

In 1358, over a century after its foundation in Cambridge, the college of Michaelhouse is facing a serious shortfall of funds and competition from upstarts rivals such as Zachary Hostel. Their problems are made no easier by the hostility of the town's inhabitants who favour the university moving away to the Fens. This simmering tension threatens to break into violence when a well-known tradesman is found dead in one of the colleges. Matthew Bartholomew knows he was poisoned but cannot identify the actual substance, never mind the killer. He also worries that other illnesses and deaths may have been caused by the effluent from his sister's dye works. Torn between loyalties to his kin and to his college, he fears the truth may destroy both his personal and professional life, but he knows he must use his skills as a physician to discover the truth before many more lose their lives entirely.

In and through their sordid and possibly criminal marital story, in which Mary is accused of poisoning Benedict, Crane sheds light on the liabilities and possibilities for women under couverture, the complex social and economic networks that bound together the elite and laboring classes of Newport, and the trans-oceanic cultures of trade, consumption, and sociability that came to shape expectations for marital satisfaction on both sides of the Atlantic"--

In a thrilling race against time to save Aggy from the hangman's noose, Mold faces hideous, deadly monsters like the Yurg and the Purple Narlo Frog. He finds true friendship in the most unusual - and smelly - of places and must pit his wits and his clever nose against the evil witch Hexaba. This is an exciting fantasy story with an array of wonderful characters, including the inimitable Mold, told in a fresh and distinctive voice by a promising new writer.

Summary:

Her mother dying in a poisonous plot of power. An instrument of peace threatening destruction. A warrior determined to uncover her secrets. Piper Akins has lived her entire life in the clutches of an evil cult and yearns to run away. But with her mother's life at stake, she is forced to follow the leaders' demands to search for the supposed magical trumpet of King Tut--knowing the power it will give them once it is in their possession. Math might be the smartest warrior in the force, but the only way to prove himself is to work with Piper to find the missing trumpet of peace and defeat the evil cult before they can destroy the world. However, Piper has secrets, and the fulfillment of her quest means the failure of his. While she and Math circle around each other, pretending one thing, believing another, Piper finds herself falling for the brave warrior. But her mother will die if Piper doesn't betray him. And Math must offer more than muscles and brains to win Piper over. He must offer his heart. Can both learn to trust each other in time to stop mankind's annihilation? "The characters are fun, flirty and mysterious. The storyline is engaging and wonderfully paced. Oh yes, I am digging these Warriors and their history. 5 Magical Stars!"--I Read Indie Review (Originally published as Peace Piper) Other books in the series: Warrior's Destiny, Warrior's Chaos, Warrior's Curse

Summary:

"In this book, Ian Burney embeds discussions about the relationship between medico-legal expertise and its wider cultural context in an account of several celebrated poisoning trials, focusing in particular on the 1856 case of William Palmer. A rogue doctor, gambler, forger, adulterer and serial murderer, Palmer served as the apogee of the Victorian poisoner, and ultimately called into question the capacity of the poison detective to satisfy the demands of his public." "Burney has produced an exemplary work of interdisciplinary history, mixing a keen understanding of the social and cultural landscape of the period with the histories of science, medicine and the law. Blending rigorous scholarship with riveting stories from the annals of crime, Poison, Detection, and the Victorian Imagination will appeal to an interdisciplinary professional audience, and to all those interested in the darker side of Victorian society." --Book Jacket.
