Summary

This beautifully illustrated, expanded and updated new edition of the 2019 Diving & Snorkeling Guide to Bali tells you all you need to know if you are planning diving or snorkeling trips around Bali. Do you want to know where the coolest critters live? Where and when to go to have the best chance of seeing big fish? How to avoid the crowds? Look no further - it's all here!
 
Deep lushly covered walls; black sand slopes crawling with rare, bizarre and wonderful creatures; impossibly gorgeous, multi-colored coral reefs; exotic white sand beaches and coves; heart-pumping drift dives past other-worldly undersea cliffs and legendary big fish dives. Bali is truly one of the finest places in the world to dive. The sheer diversity of underwater seascapes is breathtaking.
 
And because any trip to Bali would not be complete without experiencing the topside wonders of this magical island, this new edition introduces you to some of the less well-known yet completely unmissable sites on land too.
 
Visit and marvel at wonders such as ancient monuments that predate Borobudur and Angkor Wat; Formula 1 buffalo racing; a cemetery inside a crater which dates back 1,000 years; and a spectacular mountain temple that only the locals know.This book is your backstage pass to parts of the island seen by very few outsiders.

It is illustrated with over 180 gorgeous full color images and contains maps, dive safety tips, advice on how to get around, the very best of Bali's cultural icons and landscapes and a list of useful words in the Indonesian language, including diving terms.

    Unstoppable and lethal, they move across the battlefields like ghosts. They are the soldiers of the Legio Occulta. 
     
    Nola, Roman Italy, 19 August 14 A.D. 
     
    History does not acknowledge them, but the Roman Empire knows the debt they owe to this secret legion. Trained not to fight but to read and interpret the messages of the gods, they pave the way for Roman swords, intervening when earthly weapons must give way to the power of the transcendent. With the Legio Occulta, no battle is impossible. 
     
    Clad in snow-white armour and tunics as black as night, they are seers, fortune-tellers, necromancers and haruspies selected when they were children from arenas, slave markets and burning villages. Led by a general who speaks only in sign language, their motto is Vigiles in tenebris: watchers of the night. 
     
    Iron blades clash with magic. Rome will never be the same.

    Cast away from the Society (sort of) and out on our own, we've got a big problem on our hands - and an exciting prospect, too.
     
    They call it time travel on TV.
     
    Is this the big, fat secret the Hidden Ministry's been keeping? What's the real truth behind that wandering tower?
     
    Answers must be found — in the face of severe opposition from the Ministry, from Ancestria Magicka, and from every Fae Court in existence. Simple.
     
    If only everything wouldn’t keep going wrong. If only a house hadn’t walked off with Jay. If only there wasn’t still a traitor on the loose, and if only Ancestria Magicka wasn’t always up to no good. 
     
    With our trusty trio down to two, Zareen and I are going to need some help. Handsome, aristocratic, troll-shaped help, to be precise.
     
    Our mission: track down a vanishing island, save the Striding Spire, and find the way back to 1789.
     
    Oh — and find out what exactly has become of Jay...?
