A bundle of the first two books in Morgan Rice’s new number-one best-selling epic fantasy series Of Crowns and Glory (Slave, Warrior, Queen and Rogue, Prisoner, Princess). Here are two bestselling novels, all in one convenient file, which offer a great introduction to the Of Crowns and Glory series. In Slave, Warrior, Queen, 17-year-old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Delos, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate. Eighteen-year-old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition - The Killings - that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out. In Rogue, Prisoner, Princess, 17-year-old Ceres, finds herself forced, by royal decree, to fight in the Stade, the brutal arena where warriors from all corners of the world come to kill each other. Pitted against ferocious opponents, her chances of survival are slim. Her only chance lies in drawing on her innermost powers, and making the transition, once and for all, from slave to warrior. Eighteen-year-old Prince Thanos wakes on the isle of Haylon to discover he has been stabbed in the back by his own people, left for dead on the blood-soaked beach. Captured by the rebels, he must crawl his way back to life, find who tried to assassinate him, and seek his revenge. Ceres and Thanos, a world apart, have not lost their love for each other; yet the Empire court teems with lies, betrayal and duplicity, and as jealous royals weave intricate lies, they each, in a tragic misunderstanding, are led to believe the other is... 1.

Prince Baldair is summoned to lead, but the untested royal harbors secret reservations about his ability to inspire confidence in troops his senior in both age and experience. The memory of his first kills the summer prior still weigh heavy on his shoulders, and he flees to his friend Erion´s home near the Crossroads to wait for the army before marching north. Raylynn Westwind had never held a responsibility in her life. After losing her mother years ago, she wanders from town to town in search of a challenge, honoring the sacred song of the sword her mother taught her. She never backs down from a fight, not when her opponents are the deadly Knights of Jadar, mysteriously insistent upon her death. And certainly not when the opponent is the Empire´s young playboy prince. Baldair has never met another person as gifted with the sword as he, and is insistent on seeing a golden bracer grace Raylynn´s forearm. But the woman lives a mercenary´s life, and Baldair quickly learns that her loyalty comes at a high price. When he discovers the bounty on her head, the prince must choose between his responsibilities to his father´s Empire and the woman who has captured his heart as a soldier, and as a man. 1.

In this hour, we needed a working definition of the word ´´scoundrel”. For that, we headed to lexicographer Erin McKean. She’s the founder and CEO of the online dictionary Wordnik. She was also the Principal Editor of The New Oxford American Dictionary. Steve Paulson sat down with her.Next, we might not have the perfect definition of the word ´´scoundrel” but we can certainly agree on one thing – Civil War General and US Congressman Daniel Sickles was the epitome of a scoundrel. Seriously. Check out this list: murder, political corruption, affairs with queens and prostitutes… and there’s more than meets the eye about that leg he lost at Gettysburg. Then, ´´Scoundrel” is such an old-fashioned word. I mean, who uses it anymore? Aren’t there any scoundrels today? We looked no further then the world of political opposition research. Shadowy political operatives who dig up the muck on a candidate’s opponents. those running for office. Adultery, back taxes, DUIs, illegitimate children… you name it and they find it.After that, where are the female scalawags? The lady rogue? Well, Anne Strainchamps set out to find out. She called up Elizabeth Mahon, author of the blog and the book of the same name: Scandalous Women. And finally, we found a modern-day huckster. His name is Rev. Ivan Stang and he’s the co-founder of a cult called The Church of the SubGenius. Its members worship a pipe smoking man god named Bob Dobbs and claim to be a superior race descended from the Yeti. Their theology is summed up in one word; ´´Slack.” [Broadcast Date: January 11, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.

In Ben Coes´ latest, Eye for an Eye, Dewey Andreas faces the toughest odds of his life as one of China´s most powerful men has decided to do whatever he must to take down Dewey - and inflicts a horrifying loss. When Dewey uncovers the identity of a mole embedded at a high level in Israel’s Mossad, it triggers a larger, more dangerous plot. The mole was the most important asset of Chinese Intelligence, and Fao Bhang, head of China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), responds to the discovery and brutal elimination of the mole, by immediately placing a kill order on the man responsible - Dewey Andreas. Once he learns who is probably behind the attack - and why they are after him - Dewey goes rogue, using all of his assets and skills to launch a counterattack. Andreas must now face the full weight and might of the MSS, Chinese Intelligence, and the formidable Fao Bhang, if he’s to achieve his one last goal: revenge on a biblical scale, no matter the odds or the armies that he will have to fight his way through. Andreas - former Army Ranger and Delta - is a man of great skills and cunning. His opponent, Fao Bhang, is ruthless, determined, and with no limit to the assets at his disposal. In this conflict, there are only two possible outcomes. And only one Dewey Andreas. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Hermann.
