Sword of the Falcon

Sword of the Falcon

The war between the Brother Realms reaches its bloody climax as the Falcon kings race to secure allies and vie for dominance of the Northwest. As the Black Falcon's army pushes deeper into Fieran territory, Kelyn must learn to bear the weight of the War Commander's helm. Victory-and the lives of thousands-depend on his word alone. While he presses against the relentless tide of his enemies, he harbors a dark secret, one that may spell of the destruction of his family. Wounds of the flesh matter little when a man must battle his conscience and his own desires to reclaim his honor. Deep within Avidan Wood, Lothiar remembers a time when his people roamed free. Chafing inside the prison that his people call a refuge, he dreams of a new era, in which the Mother's First Children rise again to dominate the breadth of Dwinovia. In his loathing for the Sons of Ilswythe, he unleashes an ancient terror. But tampering with the forces of the Abyss brings about disastrous consequences he does not foresee. Meanwhile, Kieryn is torn between the woman he loves and his pursuit of the forces seething inside him. The secrets he is sworn to protect drive a wedge between him and his betrothed, and Rhoslyn turns to another. Shattered by betrayal and pursued by a soul-thirsty shadow, Kieryn must harness the fires of his rage and forge a new identity. One that will earn him a song in legend-or infamy as a madman.

Bushido

Bushido

Bushido, meaning "Way of the Warrior," is a Japanese code of conduct and a way of the samurai life, loosely analogous to the concept of chivalry. It originates from the samurai moral code and stresses frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor unto death. Born of two main influences, the violent existence of the samurai was tempered by the wisdom and serenity of Japanese Shinto and Buddhism. Bushido developed between the 9th and 12th centuries and numerous translated documents dating from the 12th to 16th centuries demonstrate its wide influence across the whole of Japan, although some scholars have noted "the term bushido itself is rarely attested in pre-modern literature." According to the Japanese dictionary Shogakukan Kokugo Daijiten, "Bushido is defined as a unique philosophy (ronri) that spread through the warrior class from the Muromachi (chusei) period." In Bushido: The Soul of Japan (1899), author Nitobe Inazo wrote: ..".Bushido, then, is the code of moral principles which the samurai were required or instructed to observe... More frequently it is a code unuttered and unwritten... It was an organic growth of decades and centuries of military career." Nitobe was not the first person to document Japanese chivalry in this way. In his text Feudal and Modern Japan, (1896) Historian Arthur May Knapp wrote: "The samurai of thirty years ago had behind him a thousand years of training in the law of honor, obedience, duty, and self-sacrifice..... It was not needed to create or establish them. As a child he had but to be instructed, as indeed he was from his earliest years, in the etiquette of self-immolation. The fine instinct of honor demanding it was in the very blood..."

The Vikings

The Vikings

The world of the Vikings is larger than life, filled with sagas of warriors who made fighting a career, but there's a lot more to Viking history than blood-letting and piracy. Their achievements, rich culture and craftsmanship contributed greatly to our world today, and their explorations helped make up the boundaries of nations. The Vikings: Raiders, Explorers, and Seafaring Warriors by author Lance Hightower will give you a glimpse of the battles that raged for more than 300 years, sparked by the cultural and religious differences that were the trigger for warring with the Franks, England and Ireland, and for trade and exploration into the Muslim empire, the Byzantine Empire, as far as Russia, Spain and North America. They came from Sweden, Norway and Denmark, not as one army, but as separate tribes who assaulted their way through Christendom as retaliation for the destruction of their holy icon. They came from the sea in a way that ingeniously allowed them to go where no conventional ship dared, and they were able to navigate waters without benefit of the sun to guide them. They used boats that made ship-building history - light, fast, and equally efficient in shallow rivers and mighty oceans. They terrorized, traded, bartered, took slaves, colonized, fought and died all in the name of Odin, god of the battle-slain. Perhaps in the end, they fought more for territory and riches than principle, but the history of the Vikings will always remain as one of the most enthralling of all Ages, where honor was crucial, death on the battlefield was preferred to idleness, and the stormy pantheon of their gods still held the greatest influence in their lives. The brilliant sagas come to life with snippets of modern translations, told like tales of old should be told, with dread, heroics and excitement. Lance Hightower combines his own expertise with the latest archeological findings and information given to us from ancient text to present a first-rate portrayal of the Viki...
