Ride: Kit Meets Covington by , Summary

When American teen Kit Bridges moves to England to attend an elite equestrian boarding school, neither she nor her new home will ever be quite the same. Trying to move on from her mother’s death and afraid of riding after a bad fall, plucky fourteen-year-old Kit Bridges doesn’t quite know what to expect when her father takes a position at the prestigious Covington Academy. A fancy new boarding school in England where she and her dad can make a new start sounds promising. But in addition to her cool, possibly secretly royal new roommate and the boys with charming accents . . . well, she hadn’t accounted for the strict headmistress, Lady Covington. Or the expectation that every student be a rider. Or the wild horse that she seems to have a strange and special bond with. While navigating new friendships, romances, and an alarmingly austere new environment, Kit needs to figure out whether she’s ready to get back in the saddle. And at the end of the day, it’s hard to tell who will be more changed by her arrival — Covington Academy or Kit herself.

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf: The Tribe, Book One by Ambelin Kwaymullina Summary

A compelling debut novel asks what happens when children develop inexplicable abilities—and the government sees them as a threat. They’re known as Firestarters. Boomers. Skychangers. The government calls them Illegals — children with inexplicable abilities — and detains them in menacing facilities so that society is kept out of harm’s way. Ashala Wolf and her Tribe of fellow Illegals have taken refuge in the Firstwood, a forest eerily conscious of its inhabitants, where they do their best to survive and where they are free to practice their abilities. But when Ashala is compelled to venture outside her territory, she is betrayed by a friend and captured by an enemy. Injured and vulnerable, with her own Sleepwalker ability blocked, Ashala is forced to succumb to a machine that will pull secrets from her mind. It’s only a matter of time before the machine ferrets out the location of the Tribe. Her betrayer, Justin Connor, is ever-present, saving her life when she wishes to die and watching her every move. Will the Tribe survive the interrogation of Ashala Wolf?

Carnal Alchemy by Stephen E. Flowers,Crystal Dawn Flowers Summary

BDSM sexuality as a powerful tool for self-transformation and the realization of magical and spiritual aims • Details how to combine the 6 major types of S&M stimulation with sexual stimulation for magical and transformative purposes • Explores sado-magical workings from both submissive and dominant perspectives • Traces the roots of the BDSM tradition from ancient pagan and shamanic rituals to historical figures such as the Marquis de Sade, Aleister Crowley, and Anton LaVey Sex magic allows us to tap in to the most abundant power source available: sexual energy. Magicians, shamans, and fakirs throughout history have used physical stimulation and ritual to harness sexual energy, unlock inner states of consciousness, and activate the ability to influence their surroundings. While pleasure is often the focus of this stimulation, pain is just as effective, if not more so. Combining both pleasure and pain, the sadomasochistic practice of Carnal Alchemy offers a powerful tool for self-transformation and the realization of magical and spiritual aims. Authors Stephen and Crystal Dawn Flowers explain the sado-magical workings of Carnal Alchemy from both the perspective of the submissive partner as well as the dominant. They detail the 6 major techniques of sadomasochistic stimulation--bondage, flagellation, piercing, penetration, clamping, and heat/cold--and how they can be combined with sexual stimulation for magical purposes. They trace the roots of the BDSM tradition in ancient pagan rites of passage, in indigenous shamanic rituals, and through historical figures who used this form of sexuality in their magic and philosophy, from the Marquis de Sade to more modern exemplars such as Aleister Crowley, Ernst Schertel, and Anton LaVey. This guide also covers specialized furniture and tools and the decor of “the Chamber” to trigger states of consciousness in which the Sado-Magician can effectively express his or her will.

The Greenstone Grail by Amanda Hemingway Summary

A desperate mother spirits away her infant son, seemingly drawn (chased, perhaps?) to the small English village of Thornyhill. She ends up on the doorstep of old Bartlemy, a curious man who has lived on the forested land for as long as anyone can remember–and who comes to believe that the child is destined for great things. . . . While growing up under Bartlemy’s protective eye, Nathan Ward senses something else watching him, a shift of shadows in the surrounding Darkwood. Then pieces of his dreams begin to come to life. A man he saved from the ocean washes ashore on the television news. A greenish stone cup set with jewels that has haunted his visions sounds eerily like one lost by the Thorn family centuries ago–a cup that has recently made its way back into the hands of the village’s last living ancestor. Yet when Nathan learns the chalice may have come from another world, a land with bloodstained moons and a toxic sun, he knows he is destined to play a part in something beyond his most vivid imagination. But why is the cup here, and what could it possibly want with a teenage boy and a sleepy town of villagers full of tall tales? With the help of his best friend, Hazel, Nathan must figure out why he’s been chosen–and for what purpose. Even if it means traveling deeper each night into dreams, into lands, into legends that both terrify and mesmerize him. The Greenthorn Grail is the first novel of a thrilling new trilogy, tracing a boy’s journey–a quest rife with magic, wonder, and forces as dark as midnight.

The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman Summary

Kicking off a riveting sci-fi trilogy, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman plunges us into a world where time is a tool — and the question is, who will control it? The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished — only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear. Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing — one right on top of the roof — hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he’s launched on a time-twisting journey — from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker’s actions alter the past and future, changing his world forever.

At the same time, killed in the same way, a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. And this grisly event eerily echoes the murder of two other women, stabbed to death months before on the same day. It is DI Tom Thorne who sees the link and comes to the horrifying conclusion.

Algernon Hent: My Life, Your Dimes by D. W. Chong Summary

Who killed Dr. Laurel Hent? Algernon Hent wants to know, and he's been asking the only survivor and witness of the brutal murder to spill the beans for the last thirty-two years. Just one little problem: that witness is Algernon Hent, and he isn't talking. The doctors call it 'hysterical amnesia'. Real Problem: Algernon is about to get his answer. With Congress threatening to cut NASA's funding for their Manned Mars Mission, the Into Known Space Group kicks into high gear and buys a salvage yard single stage to orbit shuttle all their own. Now all they need is a hundred sixty million dollars to refit it. Enter Algernon Hent. A fervid pro-space advocate and professional Science Fiction writer who has been roving the continent in his thirty foot RV, Wally the Wonder Wagon, for the last eighteen years, Algernon arrives at the 77th annual World Science Fiction Convention, currently in progress at the Orange County Convention Center in Anaheim, Ca. to host an auction of items to benefit the Into Known Space Group, with the aim of getting their shuttle off the ground. The two flies in this ointment labelled 'blissful weekend spent among friends and fans' are 1)Trish Mulhouse, a reporter who blows the lid off Algernon's decades-long disavowal of bloodties to Dr. Hadleigh Hent, renowned genetic research scientist and founder and former head of Hent Laboratories, one of the foremost gene therapy clinics in the world, and 2)Alger's middle sister, Honoria, current head and chief researcher at Hent Labs, who has had it in for Alger ever since a youthful indiscretion with his older sister, Lenore, resulted in an unplanned addition to the family tree and Alger's own attempted suicide. After two years in a Rehabilitation clinic, Alger left home, only to have Honoria hire a pack of goons to track him down for the sole purpose of putting a powerful hurt on him, which has landed him in the hospital five times to date. He has tried, for that reason, to keep his whereabouts a secret from his family ever since, but, like a deer caught in Trish's headlights, things go from bad to worse when Honoria spots him on Trish's live broadcast and calls to put in her two cents worth on global TV. Alger has no choice but to bolt and run. But Honoria and her goons aren't the only ones who have been chasing Alger. His High School sweetie, Sydney St. Croix, and her current husband, Avery Norris, owner and chief researcher for Gene-tech, Hent Laboratories's biggest and most vicious competitor, and Laurel Hent's former paramour, are also after him. When they catch him, they send him on a drug-assisted journey back in time to reconstruct his repressed memory, which reveals, at long last, the identity of his mother's murderer plus a whole raft of Hent family secrets. When the skeltons start rattling, Honoria takes lethal steps to throw them back into the closet where they belong. And as the body count rises, Algernon has to think fast to save his life and bring his mother's killer to justice!

Greenie’s Path by Greenie Summary

Greenie’s Path: The Search for Christopher Hiltaychuk presents a unique look at an adopted child’s life told from the child’s perspective. It is also a testament to the people who chose to take the challenge of raising another’s child as their own and loving that child as much as any birth parent could, if not more. Author Greenie is grateful for the loving care that his adoptive parents gave him, but he is also naturally very curious about the people who gave him up for adoption. Greenie is intrigued by the knowledge that there are people in this world with the same genetic history as his—people with whom he shares an unspoken bond. He describes his life, thoughts, and feelings for his birth parents, the people who felt their own world and circumstances were not ideal for raising a child at that time. He considers whether they ever wondered what happened to one of their own, one of their brothers, uncles, or grandchildren. Greenie’s Path is the true story of the path his life has taken—the man he has become. No matter what paths lay ahead, Greenie’s Path captures that need for a sense of belonging to a family is such an integral foundation to their success in the world.

Irwin Allen Television Productions, 1964–1970 by Jon Abbott Summary

Before establishing himself as the “master of disaster” with the 1970s films The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, Irwin Allen created four of television’s most exciting and enduring science-fiction series: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants. These 1960s series were full of Allen’s favorite tricks, techniques and characteristic touches, and influenced other productions from the original Star Trek forward. Every science-fiction show owes something to Allen, yet none has equaled his series’ pace, excitement, or originality. This detailed examination and documentation of the premise and origin of the four shows offers an objective evaluation of every episode—and demonstrates that when Irwin Allen’s television episodes were good, they were great, and when they were bad, they were still terrific fun.
