This is the story about a man that didn't straddle the fence of life. In everyone there is a combination of good and evil, that creates a tug of war within one's inner self. This is very normal and consistent from one person to the next. Therefore, some people tend to do more good than evil socially, and some tend to do more evil than good. All of this balance depends on the amount of good versus the amount of evil contained deep in the soul of a person's inner self. But this story tells of a man that possesses only one trait. This trait is 100% evil and inside this man there is no tug of war. He is everything that is left after all good has been stripped away. He has no conscience or moral values. There is nothing that this man won't do or say in his vicious chase for money and power. He can be best described as the total package for your worst nightmare. T.P. is the name that has been ordained to this man of evilness. T.P. carries within himself a deadly cheat and a vicious evil, which he conceals under a warm smile, a nice looking friendly face and breathtaking charm. He is king of predators and T.P. must be destroyed. The coldness and the evilness possessed by this man of darkness generate an atmosphere identical to a light breeze with cool chilling effects when first felt. This breeze can be best described as a Night Wind. Without further a do, prepare yourself for shocks and chills as the saga of Night Wind unfolds unto you.

A boy and a gorilla create an unbelievable bond in this powerful WWII tale for young readers, for fans of Alan Gratz and Michael Morpugo. “A wonderful story of hurt, kindness, and what it means to be human in an inhumane world.” -The Times of London, Children's Book of the Year In 1940, with his father off to war, Joseph is sent on a train out of his British town into the care of Mrs. F., a gruff woman with no great fondness for children. But he soon discovers her softer side when she takes him to the rundown city zoo and he learns she is the only one who ever checks in on it. Many of the animals have escaped, been released, or have sadly starved . . . but not Adonis, a huge silverback gorilla. Adonis is strong and ferocious-and a danger to the whole city if a bomb should fall and damage the fence that keeps him in. But as Joseph struggles in his new school and starts to spend more time at the zoo, he finds, unexpectedly, Adonis becoming a loyal new friend. From acclaimed author Phil Earle comes a touching historical fiction story of how a boy and a gorilla find redemption in each other amid the toughest of circumstances.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation, Emily Henry's A Song Below Water meets Stranger Things novel is a gripping story about a group of friends in a small town who find themselves dealing with unexpected powers after a cosmic event Almost everyone in the small town of Splendor, Ohio, was affected when the local steel mill exploded. If you weren't a casualty of the accident yourself, chances are a loved one was. That's the case for seventeen-year-old Franny, who, five years after the explosion, still has to stand by and do nothing as her brother lies in a coma. In the wake of the tragedy, Franny found solace in a group of friends whose experiences mirrored her own. The group calls themselves The Ordinary, and they spend their free time investigating local ghost stories and legends, filming their exploits for their small following of YouTube fans. It's silly, it's fun, and it keeps them from dwelling on the sadness that surrounds them. Until one evening, when the strange and dangerous thing they film isn't fiction--it's a bright light, something massive hurtling toward them from the sky. And when it crashes and the teens go to investigate...everything changes.

"This book is the first peer-reviewed collection of papers focusing on the potential of myth storylines to yield data and lessons that are of value to the geological sciences. Building on the nascent discipline of geomythology, scientists and scholars from a variety of disciplines have contributed to this volume. The geological hazards (such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and cosmic impacts) that have given rise to myths are considered, as are the sacred and cultural values associated with rocks, fossils, geological formations and landscapes. There are also discussions about the historical and literary perspectives of geomythology. Regional coverage includes Europe and the Mediterranean, Afghanistan, Cameroon, India, Australia, Japan, Pacific islands, South America and North America. Myth and Geology challenges the widespread notion that myths are fictitious or otherwise lacking in value for the physical sciences." -- BOOK JACKET.
