Amber Magic (Haven Series #1)

Amber Magic (Haven Series #1)

Product Description

The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming....

The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers. Over time, these foul dragons were hunted down and slain by heroes of old. When each body rotted away, nothing remained save for nine Jewels--each the lens of a dragon's left eye. These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.

The Haven Series is a fantasy epic about the Nine Jewels of Power, each of which represents a different form of magic. The Red Jewel, known as Sang, gives the wielder power over Blood Magic. The Blue, named Lavatis, can call the Rainbow and rules the Sky.

Amber Magic is a short introductory book in this epic series of fantasy novels by bestselling author B. V. Larson.

Product Description

City of Darkness takes place in 1888 London, where Jack the Ripper roams the streets with impunity and Scotland Yard seems helpless to stop him. The science of forensics is in its infancy but a few detectives – Trevor Welles among them – recognize that they are dealing with a different sort of killer, a “modern criminal” who chooses his victims at random. If Jack is to be caught, he won’t be caught with Scotland Yard’s normal methods of deduction for there is no logic to this madness. The question is no longer “Why was the victim killed?” but rather “How was the victim killed?” For the first time in the history of detection, science is trumping deductive reasoning. When a twist of fate puts Trevor in charge of the case, he hastily assembles Scotland Yard’s first forensics team: Davy Mabrey, the first bobby on the scene of the grisliest of the murders, whose working class common sense proves an invaluable asset, Rayley Abrams, a cautious intellectual whose future at the Yard is marginalized due to his Jewish heritage, Tom Bainbridge, a medical student with aristocratic connections and a secret drinking problem, Emma Kelly, sister of the Ripper’s last victim who has a troubled past and a gift for linguistics. and Geraldine Bainbridge, a wealthy and eccentric heiress and Trevor's closest friend. The team finds an unlikely ally in the form of Queen Victoria herself, who takes an unusual level of interest in the Ripper case and secretly funds the unit. But will they stop Jack in time to spare Leanna Bainbridge, the young heiress with whom Trevor has fallen madly and improbably in love? While City of Darkness takes place in London, its sequel, City of Light, will travel to Paris on the eve of the Exposition Universalle, the ultimate World’s Fair which debuted Edison’s phonograph, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, and the Eiffel Tower The third book, City of Silence, will take place in St. Petersburg where Victoria’s beloved granddaughter Alexandra is on the verge of marrying the young czar Nicolas, much to her grandmother’s dismay.

Throughout the series the Scotland Yard forensics team, which serves as a sort of Victorian-era CSI, will circle the world to investigate high-profile cases, most often at the urging of the Queen.

THE DOOR IS OPEN: The 7 Steps of Spiritual Awakening that Western Mythology and Scripture Have Been Trying to Tell Us All Along

THE DOOR IS OPEN: The 7 Steps of Spiritual Awakening that Western Mythology and Scripture Have Been Trying to Tell Us All Along

Product Description

What are Readers saying about THE DOOR IS OPEN?

●  "Fresh and insightful. A new perspective."

●  "Vivid examples drawn from popular culture and his own experiences make traditionally incomprehensible territory completely relatable."

What do the wonderful myths of ancient Greece, the beautiful stories in the Bible and Qur'an, and all the sacred stories from traditions around the world, have in common? They open our hearts to wonder, mystery, passion, and joy.

●  "One particularly moving passage details his heart-wrenching conversation with an AIDS patient, whose overwhelming positivity can teach us all a lesson."

On the outside, these stories seem very different, confusing, conflicting, and often violent and divisive. But when read symbolically and internally, they are all telling the same story. They show us the path of spiritual awakening and enlightenment. Sometimes the story is called "Returning to the Promised Land". Sometimes it's called "Seeking the Holy Grail". Sometimes it's called "Persephone's Return to Olympus."

But whatever it's called, the inner meaning and purpose is always the same. The stories are all a call to awaken.

●  "Transitions smoothly from Socrates to 'An Officer and a Gentleman' to the Prodigal Son."

 ●  "Zoroastrianism, Plato, Moses, Carl Jung, and the Grecian Demeter and Persephone--they're all here!"

●  "Seamlessly melds scripture, myth, history and philosophy for enlightenment without the characteristic preachiness."

The door is always open. The light is always ready to receive us. But we have to learn how to tread the path!  Fortunately, that's what all the sacred stories are really about.

THE DOOR IS OPEN uncovers the 7 Universal Steps that are found within the symbols and allegories of all great mythology and scripture. Each chapter ends with a series of practical and enjoyable spiritual exercises and activities. You can do this work on your own, or together with a group. It could be a church or synagogue group, a book club, a classroom, or any group of friends who want to get together and expand their spiritual horizons.

●  "A truly enjoyable read."
