A stunning new fantasy adventure in the acclaimed Avaryan Chronicles Hailed as "a sweeping saga, spiced with exciting, unexpected plot twists" (Publishers Weekly), Judith Tarr's richly imagined Avaryan fantasy series has gained a broad and devoted following that eagerly awaits each new book. The first five volumes in the series chronicle the reign of a living Sun God and his descendants in an exotic realm torn by warring magical forces. Now, after more than five years, Judith Tarr at last offers her many fans a stunning new chapter in this majestic epic. A wild, spoiled princeling of the house of Han-Gilen, Indaros Karelios is handsome, arrogant, a seducer and tavern-crawler with little regard for the noble line that spawned him. But Daros is also a mage, unruly, untrained, and unbound by the constraints that block other workers of magic. Caught violating the mages' gravest prohibition, crossing through the forbidden gates between the worlds, Daros is brought to judgment before the Lady Merian, ruler of the Golden Empire, Mistress of the Gates, and heir of Avaryan. But in Daros' eyes, Merian sees something no one else has seen—a power that far exceeds any she has ever known, and a burning passion that kindles her own restive desires. Unable to take his life, Merian exiles Daros to serve the one person who might tame him, the Emperor Estarion, the near-immortal who relinquished his rule to live a simpler life in the lands to the north. As Daros learns to control his dawning powers under Estarion's discipline, he discovers a hideous truth: a vast, inexorable wave of darkness is approaching, devouring world after world. Recklessly seeking its limits, Daros vanishes into the chill night, and Estarion, too, is swept up by the shadow, landing on the shores of darkness, where he begins a new life in an ancient land plagued by demons of the night. Embattled and alone, Lady Merian calls upon her circle of mages to summon the power that will turn back the darkness, as Daros descends to the deepest heart of the darkness, risking his own life and soul to turn back the endless night.

"Mit der Erzählung »Herz der Finsternis« gelangte Joseph Conrad zu Weltruhm. Der ungewöhnlich symbolreiche Text wird seit Erscheinen immer wieder aufs Neue interpretiert. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Einheimischen. Die Reise auf dem Fluss entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes Unterbewusstsein, in ein finsteres Labyrinth von Lüge und Schuld. Marlow trifft auf den berüchtigten Elfenbeinhändler Kurtz. Dieser hat aus seinem Handelsposten ein Zentrum des Bösen gemacht und sich so eine machtvolle Position erschaffen, von der aus er scheinbar frei schalten und walten darf. »Herz der Finsternis« hat von Anfang an Leser und Interpreten fasziniert und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt. Der Stoff diente als Vorlage mehrerer Verfilmungen. Am bekanntesten: »Apocalypse Now« von Francis Ford Coppola mit Marlon Brando in der Rolle des charismatischen und geheimnisvollen Ausbeuters (diesmal) asiatischer Einheimischer während des Vietnamkrieges und »Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes« von Herzog mit Klaus Kinski als wahnsinnigen Eroberer und Vollstrecker eines ausbeuterischen, europäischen Kolonialismus in Süd-Amerika. 1.

A country girl, a sheltered life. Met and married a city boy, recently discharged after four years of naval duty in World War II. I was molded to another's perfection. Years passed, children grew, all the while my walls were cracking. I longed to be loved for who I was. Who was I? Would be more freedom than I had had. A test, an escape, maybe therapy of my own, searching for the correct words to match my entangled feelings. Now, 83 years old, a box of tattered, torn, scraps of yellowed pages I find. Penciled verses barely visible, some too faint to revive. Thus, the verses. Born and raised on a farm, in the soft, rolling hills of the countryside near the small country town of Rockville, Maryland. Four miles, as the crow flies, from the Potomac River and the cross roads of Potomac, Maryland-now a city. I graduated from high school, worked in one of two banks in town until I was married. Became a homemaker while married, then a personnel technician in an Adventist hospital in California until I retired. I feel blessed in having good health and three wonderful, intelligent children who are caring and only a call away.

Is a story about the humanity living with a natural mind that possess by endless needs, wants and desires. The book explains how we become so intimately connected with life through our mind and by which we are conscious of all of life’s pain, suffering and disappointments it brings. In the process, we become a problem-oriented world as we individually intertwine with a time perception world, construed with the notion of future, opportunities and hope for better tomorrows. As our living continue to revolve around our desires and perceptions, the least of all the choices we will make or want is to become free from fear, free from pain and sufferings and pursuit unhappiness. Fear that if we are not happy, this will mean we have lost ourselves in emptiness and eventually become hopeless. To be hopeful, is to feeding the never ending desire for a better future from the past. In clear, straightforward language, complemented by well-designed mental functioning desire for peace, love, joy and happiness every aspect of this integrative is systematically address the perception that life will get better. From strategies, to family conveys this powerful message of empathy, hope for individuals struggling with ongoing persistent to keep on working as a manager of time to facilitate history of endless expectation. All of us enthralled in this behavior, even with obsession trying to reverse what is perceived negative relationships life and time. Yet, history indicates that the very aspect of empathic is not hopeful beginning or ending, all that does it to continuous integrating toxic relationships while promoting positive attitude toward an unsuccessful outcome. Richard Hooker (1554? - 1600) English theologian, once say, “Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better”. Also another historian Alvin Toffler a U.S. writer (1928 - ) once says, “Even the best strategies seldom take into account more than a few of the consequences that flow from them. The book went on to explains how the appearance that time and the human mind are seemingly inseparable, but biologically speaking that is not entirely conclusive. Nonetheless, as far as being aware of existence is concerned, this is one of the inter-social complexities. This tragic interactive relation is evident in many different aspects for every person living today. While progressive technology has provided the contemporary world with countless time-saving devices and options to managing our time, most people complain and suffering with anxiety about not having enough time to do all the things they want or have to do.
