Summary

“For the modeller and wargamer . . . looking for something more when recreating their battles in a table-top game or exhibiting their work.” —José Manuél Rico Cortés (“Mister JM”), Miniaturas JM   Like a good general, a good wargamer should have an eye for the ground. Just as the nature of the battlefield plays a central role in real warfare, so miniature wargames are greatly enhanced by realistic terrain. Besides, when you’ve spent hundreds of hours collecting and painting your miniature armies, they surely deserve ground worth fighting for.   Master terrain modeler Paul Davies takes the reader through the process of creating a visually appealing yet practical terrain system. First the techniques of making the basic landscape are explained, then a series of projects show how this can be adapted to suit different periods or geographic locations, from European farmland to Sudanese desert. There are then detailed chapters on adding vegetation, buildings, roadways, trench systems, and more. The clear, step-by-step instructions are clearly illustrated by numerous specially-taken photographs of the work in progress and Paul’s inspirational finished pieces.   “Takes the reader through the process of creating a visually appealing yet practical terrain over which miniature battles may be fought . . . The book should be well received by wargamers and diorama builders alike. Recommended.” —Military Modelling   “Inspiring . . . It’s the detailed ‘build projects’ and the huge number of images that really serve to make this book such a valuable resource for those who don’t quite know where to start, or those who would like some inspiration and guidance to serve as a catalyst for their own research and modelling projects.” —Tabletop Gaming

    With only weeks away from her eighteenth birthday and the fulfillment of her curse, Rose, the Princess of Rhone, faces more obstacles than ever. The kingdom, anxious over her fate, is destabilizing under her father's rule; her mother is imprisoned, and her uncle is holding a silent coup against the crown. With Theo's absence, she is unable to do more than brood over her fate as she attempts to solve the problems around her. 
    When Theo returns with surprising information, Rose knows the time has come to risk everything. Along with her friends, she prepares to face Magdalina, the wicked ruler of the fairies, and fight the battle of her life - the battle for her freedom, her kingdom, and her heart. 
    From the book: 
    “I don’t want to talk about it, Mary.” She measured her words out carefully, keeping her tone light. “I told you, he had to go and take care of something for his grandfather. It was important.” 
    “It was more than that.” 
    “It doesn’t matter.” 
    “Obviously, it does, or you wouldn’t be acting like this.” Mary came up beside her. “He told you that he loved you, didn’t he?” 
    The blush on her cheeks burned hotter. “Please stop, Mary,” she said. “Isn’t it bad enough that he said it?” 
    “But Rose, you love him, too.” Mary arched her brow at Rose’s silence. “Don’t you?” 
    “Of course I do,” Rose snapped. “But he doesn’t deserve to be stuck with me and my curse. That’s why it’s better that he left.” 
    “Oh, Rose.” Mary came up and leaned against her, stroking her hair in a mothering manner. “I’m so sorry.” 
    “Don’t be.” 
    Enjoy the conclusion to this historical fantasy fairy tale series, a fun retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale. "Beauty's Gift" is a tale full of true love, adventure, revenge, and betrayal that will have you guessing until the very end!

    This isn’t a book with lots of violence, war or death in it. There’s enough of that in real life, and if you’re into that kind of thing, then there’s plenty of other books out there for you. 
    This is a story about the stuff that we don’t have enough of in real life. Love, tolerance, bravery and leadership. And its a story about humanity’s first attempt to live in space, and how two young women save us all from our own stupidity. 
    Oh, it also features zero gravity, inter-racial, lesbian lovemaking. 
    (Because there isn’t enough of that in real life either)

    " 
    A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they get from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn young man with a unique talent. 
    Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: When he touches any object, his awareness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him. It is a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands.
     
    Despite being exploited as a child and tormented by the unpleasant experiences imprinted on him from the various items he has ""read"", Matthew agrees to travel from New York to the forests of Kenya. There, threatened by unknown enemies and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, he journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history."
