Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself--and Hugh d'Ambray might qualify"--Back cover.

Iron and Steel. Ceramics. Dyes. Glass. Gold. All are important materials that have impacted civilization. In Ruth G. Kassinger's five-book Material World series, she traces the history and science of these important materials and tells how they are being used today. Ancient people of the Near East were the first to discover how to turn iron ore into wrought iron and then to fashion this sturdy metal into tools, weapons, and other implements. Later, blacksmiths learned to make iron into steel. In Iron and Steel: from Thor's Hammer to the Space Shuttle, Kassinger covers the history of iron and steel from early times to the present. She also relates some of the myths associated with these materials and explains the science behind their production and use. Book jacket.

Simon Forman (1552-1611) is one of London's most infamous astrologers. He stood apart from the medical elite because he was not formally educated and because he represented, and boldly asserted, medical ideas that were antithetical to those held by most learned physicians. He survived the plague, was consulted thousands of times a year for medical and other questions, distilled strong waters made from beer, herbs, and sometimes chemical ingredients, pursued the philosopher's stonein experiments and ancient texts, and when he was fortunate spoke with angels. He wrote compulsively, documenting his life and protesting his expertise in thousands of pages of notes and treatises. This highly readable book provides the first full account of Forman's papers, makes sense of hisnotorious reputation, and vividly recovers the world of medicine and magic in Elizabethan London.
