The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers another winner in the acclaimed avian-themed series that mystery readers have come to love. The nineteenth book in her New York Times best-selling series continues to surprise and delight in this next knee-slapping adventure featuring Meg Langslow and all the eccentric characters that make up her world. Meg is Team Mom and Michael is coach of their twin sons' youth baseball team, the Caerphilly Eagles. Meg tangles with Biff Brown, the petty, vindictive league head. On opening day, Biff's lookalike brother is found dead in the porta-potty at the ball field. So many people think Biff's scum that it would be easy to blame him, but he has an alibi--and Meg suspects he may actually have been the intended victim. With Die Like an Eagle, readers can look forward to another zany Meg Langslow mystery--this one filled with the spirit of America's pastime and Donna's eagle eye. Like Meg Langslow, the blacksmith heroine of her series, Donna Andrews was born and raised in Yorktown, Virginia. She introduced Meg to readers in her Malice Domestic Contest-winning first mystery, Murder with Peacocks, and readers are still laughing. This novel swept up the Agatha, Anthony, Barry, and a Romantic Times award for best first novel, and a Lefty for funniest mystery.

“Stand up, old man!”, Agon said to himself. “Go to your grave for you are not dead yet… You have lived like an eagle, so die like an eagle! Don’t let those coward sparrows make fun of you…” The Old Agon’s wings were weaker, feathers shed and talons blunted. He could neither fly nor eat. He was either going to die or be reborn out of the ashes. It wouldn’t be appropriate for the lord of the sky to cry in despair. Even his death should have been legendary. Because an eagle would never hunt flies! Agon neither let sparrows make fun of him nor hunted flies…
Nine thousand years ago, the horses died, leaving the band of people called the Shahala hungry. Their Moonkeeper, Ashan, led them across the Tabu land, but ahead waited a woman with secrets that would destroy the love between Ashan and her mate.
The most dangerous mission of their military careers awaits two heroes of the Roman army in Britain. In The Eagle and the Wolves, the epic fourth novel of Simon Scarrow's series, it's A.D. 44 and Vespasian and the Roman Army's Second Legion are forging ahead in their campaign to seize the southwest. Centurion Macro and newly appointed Centurion Cato are ordered by Vespasian to provide Verica, aged ruler of the Atrebates, with an army. They must train his tribal levies into a force that can protect him, enforce his rule, and take on the increasingly ambitious raids that the enemy is launching. But open revolt is brewing. Despite the Atrebates' official allegiance to Rome, many are wary of the legions and want to resist the Roman invaders, and Macro and Cato must first win the loyalty of the disgruntled levies before tackling the enemy without. Can they succeed while surviving a deadly plot to destroy both them and their comrades serving with the eagles? In the midst of this highly volatile situation, Macro and Cato face the greatest test of their army careers. Theirs is a brazen tale of military adventure, political intrigue, and heroism, as only they stand between the destiny of Rome and bloody defeat. "A relatively new master of the genre."---Booklist
This story is about a man called Rhymes Ramose and the way he tried to destroy the world after a man called King Hovercraft killed his sister Hanneck Ramose. It also tells the story about how people tried to stop him from destroying the world for Rhymes Ramose holds the rest of us responsible for his sisters death. This is the second book in the series the way the last story began. The story begins when a plane crashes in a desert. The pilot asks a man called Captain John Coiners why a ship is left in the desert. The pilots name is Keith Black. John tells him that he was the captain of the ship and that the ship is called the Red Dragon. He also tells him the history about how they found the Fiddle of Doom and that his son Michael burnt a Golden Eagle and that Michael was put into prison. He tells Keith that he would do anything for his son. He tells Keith Black about a man called Treeon Littlewood and the story that he told him and the crew of the Red Dragon. The way the first book ended and the way the second book begins. Thousand Boil meets The Black Knight and everyone from the Underworld heads off to Africa to try and find the weapons that are buried in a Mountain called Mount Kina. Rhymes Ramose and his army have come to earth and are starting to take out the human race. They also meet a prince called Prince Indiana Jones who is the son of King Dave Jones. King Dave Jones has gone with Thousand Boil and his army to Africa. When they get there they meet up with two giants, their names are Big-foot and Horses-ash. They are the keepers of the gates and the protectors of weapons. They are standing outside Mount Kina and they are there to stop people from taking the weapons out of Mount Kina. However when they hear that the Black Knight is with Thousand Boil they let some of Thousand Boils army walk into the mountain. As soon as Thousand Boil sees the weapons he and his men take them out of the mountain and the story begins. You might be wondering where this story came from. Well I will tell you. It came into my head after I was watching a program called Horizons. On the program I heard them talking about a desert that turns into a sea every now and again. So I thought to myself if a desert can turn into a sea then why not have a sea turn into a desert? Then I thought to myself, why would anyone want to go to a place like that? So I thought what if someone had burnt a rare bird like a golden eagle and was put into prison and the only way that they could get out was for someone else to find one to replace the one that was burnt. So I started to write the story then I thought it would be really boring telling a story like that. Then the Lord of the Rings came out and I got my thinking cap on and thought instead of having a ring with power why not have a fiddle with the power to take an immortals soul. Then I started thinking what would be the best way to start to tell the story of the history of the fiddle of Doom so I decided to have it placed in a cave and for one of the crew of the Red Dragon to play it. Then I thought, why not have an immortal to tell the history behind the fiddle of Doom? Then along came Treeon Littlewood to tell the story. So I hope you like the story for if you do I will write another one for I am hoping to write three books on this subject. It has taken me about two years to write this story so I would like for someone to buy it so that my work will not be in vain. I would also like people to tell me what they think of it.

What is God really like? In religion, like science, we need to know the truth! What started the war in heaven? Does God care for me? Is faith really all we need to be saved? Why did Jesus have to die? This bold study addresses these vital spiritual questions with a biblically solid, inspiring, and fresh perspective. Conrad reveals a magnificent God who prefers that we consider ourselves his trusted friends and not just obeying servants-a caring God who wants us to be willing to ask him even the hardest and most personal questions. He describes a great controversy in which God has been accused by Satan of lying and shows how God has demonstrated his truthfulness. He focuses on the question of why Jesus needed to die and gives a surprising, clear, and reasonable explanation. He tells of a gracious God that loves us more than life itself and prepares us for a time of trouble soon to come. Most of all, it introduces an alternate theology-the Great Controversy-Demonstration Model-that may shake the Earth.
