As the leader of The Seven of Power, Casey knew the only way to defeat the darkness her friends and her were destined to overthrow, was to follow what their Guardians had imparted, the magical book Norman had given her, and most importantly to stay together. Yet, as she had learned back on Earth, things never go according to plan. Now separated, Casey and her friends find themselves in a strange new world full of danger, beauty and magic. They will discover new friends and foes in the unlikeliest of places, meet their true parents and step into rolls they never dreamt were possible as they search for the answers to impossible questions and learn of their true natures and the destinies they were born to fulfill. Will they find the answers they seek before those who wish to destroy them end the game forever?

Beyond Southern Skies tells the story of the planning and construction of the Parkes Telescope in rural New South Wales, Australia and surveys its achievements over the past thirty years. Around this central theme Peter Robertson presents a broader history of radio astronomy, describing its rapid rise to become the respected partner of traditional optical astronomy. The opening up of the radio window on the universe has been one of the most exciting developments in modern science. The technical achievements of the telescope outlined in Peter Robertson's very readable book will be accessible to a general audience. Readers will be fascinated by the lively account of the personalities, politics and controversy that lay behind the decision to build the Parkes Telescope. Since its completion in 1961, the telescope has contributed much to our knowledge of quasars, pulsars, masers, supernova remnants and molecular clouds, as well as the other unusual objects discovered in recent years. During the 1990s the telescope will continue to play a part in our quest to understand the origin and nature of the universe, and our place in it.

A beautiful book dedicated to southern hemisphere astronomy Few books are devoted entirely to the rich skies of the southern hemisphere. Stars of the Southern Skies draws on the knowledge of South African experts to offer stargazers some unique insights into the night skies in their half of the world. A practical chapter is devoted to choosing an instrument - from binoculars to telescopes - with which to view the moon, the planets and the stars. The beauty and romance of the worlds around our world and the myths that have been created around them are described in one chapter; comets and meteors are detailed in another. A chapter is devoted to the Sun and Moon, a chapter to the planets. A useful appendix details observatories, societies and planetariums where star-lovers can pursue their interest. The text is complemented by superb illustrations - star charts, photographs and graphics - making it a visual delight. This is a book for anybody who has ever gazed in wonder at the glory of a star-filled sky, and a must for all budding amateur astronomers.
