Book excerpt: FROM THE DESK OF LUC DUMONT, HEAD OF SECURITY ST. MICHEL DAY 12 Still no sign of any missing heir. Must speak with Queen Simone about the longing looks her granddaughter, the beautiful Princess Marie-Claire, is giving that aristocratic Sebastian LeMarc. He seems too worldly for her innocence, but the protective and personal touches he gives her leads me to believe something is brewing between them…. I see how he watches her as she laughs with her sisters—and the way she looks at him as he dances with others. But is their budding relationship true enough to withstand rumors that Sebastian's ties to the royal family might be stronger than we think?

Book excerpt: Physicians, readers and scholars have long been fascinated by Shakespeare's medical language and the presence of healers, wise women and surgeons in his work. This dictionary includes entries about ailments, medical concepts, cures and, taking into account recent critical work on the early modern body, bodily functions, parts, and pathologies in Shakespeare. Shakespeare's Medical Language will provide a comprehensive guide for those needing to understand specific references in the plays, in particular, archaic diagnoses or therapies ('choleric', 'tub-fast') and words that have changed their meanings ('phlegmatic', 'urinal'); those who want to learn more about early modern medical concepts ('elements', 'humors'); and those who might have questions about the embodied experience of living in Shakespeare's England. Entries reveal what terms and concepts might mean in the context of Shakespeare's plays, and the significance that a particular disease, body part or function has in individual plays and the Shakespearean corpus at large.

From an undisclosed Kentucky medical office, Leia's blood was sent to the Mayo Clinic and later to Switzerland for testing. Leia herself denied having any kinship to royalty from the very beginning. It turned out to be a positive royal antigen, thus making her related to the bloodlines of England's Queen Victoria.

Download or read book The Golden Bough written by James George Frazer and published by Cosimo, Inc.. This book was released on 2005-12-01 with total page 732 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The notion of a man-god, or of a human being endowed with divine or supernatural powers, belongs essentially to that earlier period of religious history in which gods and men are still viewed as beings of much the same order, and before they are divided by the impassable gulf which, to later thought, opens out between them. Strange, therefore, as may seem to us the idea of a god incarnate in human form, it has nothing very startling for early man, who sees in a man-god or a god-man only a higher degree of the same supernatural powers which he arrogates in perfect good faith to himself. -from "Chapter VII: Incarnate Human Gods" In 1890, James George Frazer began publishing The Golden Bough, his monumental study of myth, ritual, and religion, which would, by 1936, run to 13 volumes and establish him as a pioneer in the study of religion as an aspect of culture. This abridged edition, assembled in 1922, condenses this fundamental work to one readable volume that is still a source for modern anthropology, thanks to its expansive discussions ancient cultish practices and their connections to the rites of modern Christianity. In eloquent prose, Frazer discusses legends of the woods, sympathetic magic, magicians as kings, the worship of trees, the concept of the sacred marriage, the links between priestly and royal power, ritual royal sacrifices, the concept of "eating the god," the myths of Osiris, Adonis, Isis, and other ancient deities, and much more. Lovers of mythology will be enraptured by this book, which draws all of human belief under one unifying umbrella, celebrating myth and ritual as part of the basis of all human culture. Scottish anthropologist SIR JAMES GEORGE FRAZER (1854-1941) also wrote Man, God, and Immortality (1927) and Creation and Evolution in Primitive Cosmogonies (1935).

The vampire is willing to break the law to pursue their forbidden love, and she is ready to give in to her desires. Before they get the chance, though, word of an invasion by the Sador Empire arrives. The young and untested king marches off to war, leaving Thana behind. However, Thana’s mother will do anything to stop her daughter’s relationship with the vampire, and with him gone, a plan is put into motion that will force Thana from the castle in fear for her life. Not knowing who else to trust, Thana flees to find Keiran, following him into the fray. Though she only sought sanctuary, she becomes the central prize of the war itself. A Sadori general realizes Thana is far more precious than Tordania’s coal. She will offer him a route to glory, and the painful truth of her very existence will be laid bare. She will have to choose between a life of luxury in the hands of her Sadori captors or risk her life in an escape to return to the vampire she loves.

Download or read book A River of Royal Blood written by Amanda Joy and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2019-10-29 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An enthralling debut perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone set in an ancient North African-inspired fantasy world where two sisters must fight to the death to win the crown. Sixteen-year-old Eva is a princess, born with the magick of blood and marrow--a dark and terrible magick that hasn't been seen for generations in the vibrant but fractured country of Myre. Its last known practitioner was Queen Raina, who toppled the native khimaer royalty and massacred thousands, including her own sister, eight generations ago, thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition. Living in Raina's long and dark shadow, Eva must now face her older sister, Isa, in a battle to the death if she hopes to ascend to the Ivory Throne--because in the Queendom of Myre only the strongest, most ruthless rulers survive. When Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before the battle with her sister, she discovers there is more to the attempt on her life than meets the eye--and it isn't just her sister who wants to see her dead. As tensions escalate, Eva is forced to turn to a fey instructor of mythic proportions and a mysterious and handsome khimaer prince for help in growing her magick into something to fear. Because despite the love she still has for her sister, Eva will have to choose: Isa's death or her own. A River of Royal Blood is an enthralling debut set in a lush, ancient North African inspired fantasy world that subtly but powerfully challenges our notions of power, history, and identity.
