For years I’ve been encouraged by many without any connections to each other to tell my story. The time is now right to tell my truth, my perspective, and my experience. I’ve been labeled an avid learner, a work in progress, and a truth seeker for myself and about myself. As part of my spiritual journey, this book serves as a resource to heal and to be better than my best. In tarot the Major Arcana card Queen of Fire means confident, warm, intelligent, and graceful. She encourages you to stretch your wings and fly, to assert your independence and creativity, and to avoid underestimating yourself. The Queen of Fire is me. It is my hope that this book will inspire you to live without fear, persevere despite what life hands you, and take those moments in your life and turn them into positive learning moments.

Im riesigen Gebiet von Mandinorien gilt Drachenblut als das wertvollste Gut. Rote, grüne, blaue und schwarze Drachen werden gejagt, um an ihr Blut zu kommen. Das daraus gewonnene Elixier verleiht den wenigen Gesegneten übernatürliche Kräfte. Doch das letzte Zeitalter der Drachen neigt sich seinem Ende zu. Kaum jemand kennt die Wahrheit: Die Drachen werden immer weniger und schwächer. Sollten sie aussterben, wäre ein Krieg Mandinoriens mit dem benachbarten Corvantinischen Kaiserreich unausweichlich. Alle Hoffnung des Drachenblut-Syndikats beruht auf einem Gerücht, nach dem es eine weitere Drachenart gibt, die weitaus mächtiger ist als alle anderen. Claydon Torcreek, ein Dieb und unregistrierter Blutgesegneter, wird von der obersten Herrschergilde in das wilde, unerforschte Inland geschickt, um einem Geschöpf nachzuspüren, das er selbst für reine Legende hält: dem weißen Drachen. »Mühelos verbindet Ryan Drachen- Fantasy mit Spionageroman und Seeabenteuer, meisterhaft und glaubwürdig.« Publishers Weekly

Welcome to the new age where the human race is now extinct and the plant is inhabited by downworlders. "The Queen of Fire" is a story that follows a former CIA agent Missy Lynn Black when her life was spared by the death angel during the apocalypse. Trying to leave her former life behind, she now goes by the name of Cash, as she battles her way through the darkness that stands in her path of establishing some sort of order and peace in this new world. When she returns back to the New Americas, she finds herself in the arms of not one but two former flings, one whom she had known since she was a small child and the other one who was held captive with her during the first year of the new world. Which one will win her heart back? As the tension builds and the castle is attacked, Cash must help defend it and team up with a mixed group of downworlders, which exposes her abilities to her new acquaintances. That could either help or hurt her in the long run, but don't worry, since her longtime friend Angi is there to help hide her powers and lighten the mood with her snarky comments. New and past friendships are put to the test when the friends come to her aid, as her past comes back to haunt her. Everyone's life is put on the line and no one is safe. Who will go up in flames and who will be turned to ash?

There are different interpretations of the biblical book, Song of Solomon. This is understandable because interpretations of the book roots are in faith traditions and interpreters experiences of the Holy Spirit. The different interpretations of the book of Song of Solomon give insight that affirms God at work in the interpreters when the message of God is heard anew through each approach. Some interpret Song of Solomon as allegorical biblical text. This interpretation asserts the book of Song of Solomon, as a love story between God and the church, or Christ and the Church. Another allegorical interpretation of the book asserts the book, Song of Solomon, as a love story between Christ and the soul. Others interpret the book, Song of Solomon, as literal biblical text, read in a normal way. One literal interpretation of the book, Song of Solomon, asserts the book a love story between a young woman and a youth, who is a shepherd. In this interpretation the young woman rejects the love of the most powerful man on earth, Solomon, to embrace the love of a young shepherd. She marries the shepherd, and their marriage blooms in nature.

Oh, one more thing. Admiral Sam wants to know, if you need back-up. Great! The more, the merrier. A minute later, Sam appeared next to Debbie, clad in his long cloak and wide brimmed hat and asked, When does the fun, begin? Debbie instantly snapped to attention and saluted. Hold on there, cadet. Dont go military, on me. Relax, were in the field. Calistus explained, We have to stop, about two dozen men and two gun boats, before sunup. Su should be sending a large tank of flammable solvent, through a portal, any moment now. But, I havent seen any guards as of yet. A horizontal portal opened twenty, feet above the water and a large metal tank slipped through unnoticed, and hovered just above the water to close to their position. Calistus sighed and said, I cant ignite it there, itll fry us all. I'm on it, whispered Debbie, eager to show off, for the admiral. As she dove in the water and pushed the container into position. Just then, a pirate poked his head out of one of the gun ships, spotted something moving and hollered, Whos there? And began to fire at the tank of flammable solvent, igniting it into a ball of fire. That swiftly spread over the water turning, the inlet into a river of fire. Debbie quickly dove underwater, to avoid getting hit. But she was struck in the side, before she could react. She struggled desperately to stay afloat, and managed to make it to shore, where she collapsed. Calistus hollered, Sam, lets try and get them in a crossfire! In minutes, the camp was swarming with pirates, firing at anything that moved. After a ten-minute gun battle, the pirates strapped Debbies limp body, to a tree and the leader hollered, Drop your weapons and surrender, or the woman dies! Sam, theyve got Debbie! Hold your fire! The two men approached the pirates, with their hands and guns over their heads, Sam whispered, Protective shields on, weapons on stun, once we reach Debbie, we position ourselves in front of her, to protect her, then, we let 'em have it. As they reached Debbie, the men quickly spun around, Calistus hollered, as he leveled his rifle at the pirates, I think its you, who should surrender! Laughter suddenly broke out, amongst the crowd, mocking Calistuss bold statement. Sam shouted, Fire! Blasts of energy streaked through the night rapidly finding their marks as bullets ricocheted off their shields. Once silence reined, Calistus glanced at Sam and inquired, What's wrong? I was hoping for a knockdown, drag out, gun fight. Instead, all we got, was a bunch of wimps! Whatever, Sam. Why dont you round them up, before they come to, while I take care of Debbie. Carefully untying her and lying her on the ground, Calistus contacted Moon Base One, Su, I need you here and fast, cadet Debbies been injured. Seconds later, Su appeared, then, hollered, as she dove for the ground, firing her pistol Look out! A blast of energy struck the would-be assassin, liquefying his body into a yellow-brown ooze, which swiftly seeped into the sand. Su quickly returned, with Debbie. Sam bellowed A little help, here, if you dont mind! Having the prisoners tied up, Sam surveyed the pirates and commented What a motley crew they are. Do you think well get any information, out of 'em, Cal? Nope! None of them, look like, they have the brains to come up with a strategy, as complex as this. Deb did mention about Norm, who tried to waste her. Hes probably their contact. How are we going to locate one person, in this jungle? questioned a frustrated Sam. Sam, youre slipping in your old age. Deb mentioned that she was washed up on the beach after the ship was destroyed. That should be on the other side of the island. Calistus contacted Su and inquired, Can you contact the nearest coast guard, and inform them about the bunch of pirates, we have tied up. Then, see if you can bounce a signal off one of Earths satelli

Don Quixote and the Brilliant Name of Fire reveals for the first time the true extent of the esoteric dimension of the classic Spanish work. References to cards of the Tarot deck, a means of progression on the inner journey, have long been noted in it; but Don Quixote and the Brilliant Name of Fire will show their full extent, as well as demonstrating spectacular visual representations of Hebrew letters of the Qabalah, and the strict allegory of psychic transformationin the way of the Shakespeare playsin which these symbols have their place. The close kinship of Don Quixote and the Shakespeare First Folio becomes plain, and their origin in a common author, neither Will Shakespeare nor Cervantes. www.thegreatpesher.com
