Set in Mexico amidst the monarch butterflies' annual migration and during the Days of the Dead, Ghost Wings, written by Barbara M. Joosse, author of the best-selling Mama, Do You Love Me?, and illustrated with the luminescent artwork of Giselle Potter, is the touching story of a little girl whose very best friend is her grandmother. But one spring, Grandmother becomes thin as smoke. When she dies, Papa says, "When you love someone they never really leave." But to the little girl, Grandmother seems impossibly far away. Who will sing to her? Who will chase the monsters from under her bed? Then, during the Days of the Dead, something extraordinary happens that brings Papa's words vividly to life. Ideal for one-on-one sharing as well as a group discussion, Ghost Wings' poignant message of the endurance of love and the power of memory is sure to linger long after the book is closed. A discussion guide is included.

Those who love both Nature and Technology and are looking for an extraordinary but still believable Adventure, will be attracted by this book. Many people believe that very special events do only occur far away. This is so because we are not really aware of our environment and the forces that dwell in it. Be ready to open your eyes and change your mind and you will see that different realities converge here, very close to us! Maybe you cannot see them at the first glance. But, eventually, fate will make them cross your way. If this happens, the world won't be the same for you any longer. Have the courage to join Master Engineer Carrás and his Specialists Team on this fantastic experience! Preview: In the 24th century we were used to consider any possible threat to our planet as coming from space, very likely from one of those terrorist groups from far-away worlds that did not accept the spreading of the Human culture. The idea that we may have a potential enemy in our own planet had not crossed the minds of the generals at the Pentagon, until Major Jenkins detected a huge object advancing in the depths of the Indic Ocean during a routine Navy drill. Soon, another encounter of similar kind, but in the air, will show us that our homeland security is unable to assess the presence of other beings who are apparently sharing our pretty planet. Master Engineer Carrás, Technical Director of the EACS Aerospace Consortium in Getafe, and his collaborators, have been involved in a search mission under the supervision of the pretty Elke Zimmermann, a high Government representative who insists on the peaceful nature of their task. What the Carrás people cannot tell Ms Zimmermann is that they have found a mole in their organization.

Nothing in their world is more revered than the birds of prey and no one more honored than the falconers who call them to their fists. Brysen strives to be a great falconer—while his twin sister, Kylee, rejects her ancient gifts for the sport and wishes to be free of falconry. She’s nearly made it out, too, but a war is rolling toward their home in the Six Villages, and no bird or falconer will be safe. Together the twins must journey into the treacherous mountains to trap the Ghost Eagle, the greatest of the Uztari birds and a solitary killer. Brysen goes for the boy he loves and the glory he's long craved, and Kylee to atone for her past and to protect her brother's future. But both are hunted by those who seek one thing: power. In this first young-adult fantasy novel in a trilogy, Alex London launches a soaring saga about the memories that haunt us, the histories that hunt us, and the bonds of blood between us.

In a reservation where magic has been unrestrained for entirely too long, there is no rest from the wicked… After dealing with the fallout of a shape-shifting, fire-throwing demon, Lizzie, Belle, and Aiden are hoping the reservation will finally catch a break from the constant influx of evil. Those hopes are quickly dashed when Lizzie comes across the scent of evil and tracks it back to the clean-picked bones of a man. As it quickly becomes obvious that this is not a one-off situation and there’s now a demon with a taste for human flesh on the reservation, another problem arises in the form of a White Lady—a ghost not only seeking bloody revenge, but demanding Belle’s assistance to get it. And she won’t take no for an answer. But the greatest threat of all might be the witch who is a magical bloodhound. A witch who’s been sent to the reservation to by one Clayton Marlowe… Lizzie’s husband. What everyone is saying about Keri Arthur’s novels: I do enjoy this series. Arthur has created a cozy set of characters who settle into this initially hostile setting and has kept me coming back. Kathy Davie from Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! on Wicked Wings Hoo, boy. Deadly Vows is action packed (and humor-filled). Kathy Davie from Books, Movies, Reviews, Oh My! for Deadly Vows If you are looking for something fresh, fun, with a twist on witches and werewolves, then get your hands on BLOOD KISSED by author Keri Arthur and enjoy! Annetta Sweetko, Fresh Fiction. The paranormal Australia that Arthur concocts works perfectly, and the plot speeds along at a breakneck pace. Publisher’s Weekly for The Darkest Kiss Kick-ass women, strong, smart characters, mysteries, plot, action, a touch of humor and romance. Totally my kind of read.
