And when her traveling companion, young prince Connor Shaltar, begins to meddle with magic as well—things get entirely out of hand—meanwhile, back in Cantirmoor, Wren's best friend, Princess Teressa, is trying to get accustomed to living in court. Not so easy after all those years in an orphanage. Especially when someone is causing trouble in Cantirmoor, not just between courtiers, but magical trouble. And Tyron, her friend, is involved.

    Synopsis
    In this first volume of his magisterial study of the foundations of Mormon thought and practice, Terryl L. Givens offers a sweeping account of Mormon belief from its founding to the present day. Situating the relatively new movement in the context of the Christian tradition, he reveals that Mormonism continues to change and grow. Givens shows that despite Mormonism's origins in a biblical culture strongly influenced by 19th-century Restorationist thought, which advocated a return to the Christianity of the early Church, the new movement diverges radically from the Christianity of the creeds. Mormonism proposes its own cosmology and metaphysics, in which human identity is rooted in a premortal world as eternal as God. Mormons view mortal life as an enlightening ascent rather than a catastrophic fall, and reject traditional Christian concepts of human depravity and destiny. Popular fascination with Mormonism's social innovations, such as polygamy and communalism, and its supernatural and esoteric elements—angels, gold plates, seer stones, a New World Garden of Eden, and sacred undergarments—have long overshadowed the fact that it is the most enduring and even thriving product of the 19th century's religious upheavals and innovations. Wrestling the Angel traces the essential contours of Mormon thought from the time of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young to the contemporary LDS church, illuminating both the seminal influence of the founding generation of Mormon thinkers and the significant developments in the church over almost 200 years. The most comprehensive account of the development of Mormon thought ever written, Wrestling the Angel will be essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the Mormon faith.

    Synopsis
    A Kirkus Reviews best nonfiction book of 2016. A remarkable true story of adventure, betrayal, and survival set in one of the world's most inhospitable places. In 1906, from atop a snow-swept hill in the ice fields northwest of Greenland, hundreds of miles from another human being, Commander Robert E. Peary spotted a line of mysterious peaks looming in the distance. He called this unexplored realm 'Crocker Land'. Scientists and explorers agreed that the world-famous explorer had discovered a new continent rising from the frozen Arctic Ocean. Several years later, two of Peary's disciples, George Borup and Donald MacMillan, assembled a team of amateur adventurers to investigate Crocker Land. Before them lay a chance at the kind of lasting fame enjoyed by Magellan, Columbus, and Captain Cook. While filling in the last blank space on the globe, they might find new species of plants or animals, or even men; in the era of Jules Verne and HG Wells, anything seemed possible. Renowned scientific institutions, and even former president Theodore Roosevelt, rushed to endorse the expedition. What followed was a sequence of events that none of the explorers could have imagined. Trapped in a true-life adventure story, the men endured howling blizzards, unearthly cold, food shortages, isolation, a fatal boating accident, a drunken sea captain, disease, dissension, and a horrific crime. But the team pushed on through every obstacle, driven forward by the mystery of Crocker Land and faint hopes that they someday would make it home. Populated with a cast of memorable characters, and based on years of research in previously untapped sources, A Wretched and Precarious Situation is a harrowing Arctic narrative unlike any other.

    Orville lived to see the airplane transform the world and change people’s lives.He saw the first regular airmail service introduced in 1918, the first nonstop transcontinental flight in 1923, the first round-the-world flight in 1924, the first polar flight in 1926, and the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic in 1927. He witnessed two world wars in which the airplane played a critical role. He saw the earth shrink as the jet engine replaced propellers. He lived to see airplanes that flew faster than the speed of sound, and planes whose wings stretched farther than the distance of his first flight at Kitty Hawk.There were moments when he looked back wistfully to those long-ago days when flying was still a dream that he shared with his brother. He once said, “I got more thrill out of flying before I had ever been in the air at all—while lying in bed thinking how exciting it would be to fly.”

    Synopsis
    Named president and CEO of NBC at the age of 43, he faced a two-headed dragon: on one hand, distrust from the network people deeply skeptical of the 'suit' from GE, their new corporate parent; and on the other, fiscal oversight demands from a cautious, conservative institution reluctant to invest heavily in a media business they didn't understand. For the next 20 years, he managed to navigate the fine line between the two and in the process completely reinvent - and save - the network. His name is Bob Wright. Under his leadership a traditional network, struggling to survive a changing landscape, was transformed into a $45 billion cable and Internet giant. Frequently flying under the GE corporate radar, Wright and his handpicked team spearheaded what amounts to a revolution in broadcast television: Embracing rather than resisting cable Launching alternative news channels CNBC and MSNBC along with MSNBC.com, NBC's powerful springboard to the Internet Creating strategic partnerships with other media companies formerly considered competitors A string of acquisitions that solidified NBC's leadership in multiple US and international markets, culminating in the lucrative merger into NBC Universal What does someone like that do when he retires? If he's Bob Wright, he starts all over again. At almost the exact same time as Bob's NBC reign was winding down, his grandson, Christian, was diagnosed with autism, a condition then poorly understood. Baffled by a lack of medical knowledge and community support, Bob and his wife, Suzanne, founded Autism Speaks, which in short order became the leading advocacy and research funding organization for this mysterious condition that so devastates families. They make a powerful team - the compassionate, charismatic, indefatigable Suzanne who won't take no for an answer and the analytic, efficient executive who poured all his business acumen into building an organization...

    Synopsis
    A brilliantly original examination of the many aspects that make up a life - from birth, up and over the hill, and into the wilderness of old age A truly astonishing and original work of fiction, Wrinkles is the story of a life lived 44 times, from childhood to adulthood to old age. It is a story of one man, a writer, who is born, who grows, who loves, who stops loving; who eats, sleeps, smokes, lies, boozes, cheats, regrets, has sex, has dreams, and lives. In short yet intimately detailed chapters, each covering a single aspect of his life from youth through old age, we get to know this person fully through the small yet telling incidents that make him who he is. He remembers the taste of a cigarette, the feel of his army uniform, the scent of a lover, the strange and unexpected touch of a college professor's hand, and so many more small experiences that can never be shaken off. At once poignant, funny, and troubling, Charles Simmons's Wrinkles is a dissection of an ordinary existence made extraordinary through reflection - a brilliant celebration of the not-so-simple act of being alive.
