Dr. Mikhail "Misha" Budnikov takes one look at fellow fencer Ryan O'Connor and instantly knows his type. The undisciplined hothead is all ego with no finesse and even less control. In short, Misha's pet peeves personified. To put the arrogant kid in check, Misha challenges him to a sparring match, which he predictably wins. Not so predictably, Ryan asks him to be a mentor and show him how to fence. Startled by the moment of humility, Misha agrees. What begins as fencing lessons becomes something much hotter, and before they know it, Misha is giving Ryan an entirely different kind of education. Dominance, submission, pain, pleasure-at the hands of an older, experienced man, a whole new world is opening up for Ryan. As the trust deepens and their bond strengthens, though, Ryan retreats because that sham called love left him jaded long ago. Cynical beyond his years, he's not letting his guard down, least of all for a thrice-divorced man twice his age. Now Misha has to find a way to crack through those defenses...or accept defeat and walk away from the submissive who might just be the love of his life.

In this fascinating book William G. Gray, the renowned English Kabbalist and Ceremonial Magician, delineated some of the lessons he learned from the letters which passed between himself and the Martinist, Emil Napoleon Hauenstein, his Austrian mentor and friend, whom he affectionately referred to as "E.N.H.," and who classified himself a "mystic." Hauenstein was an "Initiate" of the well-known French Occultist Papus (Gerard Encausse). He addressed important psycho-spiritual occult principles and doctrines in his letters, and since "Occultism is the study and practice of subjects and laws which are beyond the bounds and limitations of ordinary physical or even mental experience," he directed his young protegé in unfolding a well-regulated "Self," who is in full control of all his personal faculties. This is of particular importance in understanding, as William Gray noted, that "Occultism is not a pastime, it is a Power, a Purpose, a Progress, and a Path"-a Way of Life!

This book contains a comprehensive collection of quotations to stimulate thought and increase our understanding of service and its vital importance at the present time.
Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

In a new and major novel, the creator of fantastic universes o vampires and witches takes us now into the world of Isaiah and Jeremiah, and the destruction of Solomon's Temple, to tell the story of Azriel, Servant of the Bones. He is ghost, genii, demon, angel--pure spirit made visible. He pours his heart out to us as he journeys from an ancient Babylon of royal plottings and religious upheavals to Europe of the Black Death and on to the modern world. There he finds himself, amidst the towers of Manhattan, in confrontation with his own human origins and the dark forces that have sought to condemn him to a life of evil and destruction. From the Hardcover edition.
The Master List Uncovered is based upon Michael Dewar's pastoral preaching and teachings over the years; it is an encouragement to believers, to be steadfast in their faith. But it is primarily a trumpet call to people everywhere Christians, Gentiles, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and especially those without a religious faith to urgently contemplate their end-of-life destination, and make the necessary change now by accepting God's redemptive offer of eternal life. The compelling message of the book is that every human being will spend his or her eternity in one of two destinations and that destination choice must be made before physical death occurs or it will be made by default. The default choice guarantees eternal death but the conscious, deliberate choice of redemption guarantees eternal life in a hilariously happy place. A person without a chosen end-of life destination is a candidate for the eternal Lake of Burning Sulfur by default. You are listed in one of God's two record books: the book of life or the book of wrath. Your listing determines your eternal destination. The good news is, you can change your listing and destination but the time to act is now.

This novel is the sequel to Of Such Is The Kingdom Parts I & II: A Novel of the Christ and the Roman Empire. It employs those characters who were still alive at the end of Part II and adds some new ones. Did Claressa embrace Manaheem's new-found faith? What happened to the bereaved family of Benjamin? Did Joseph, the oldest son get to go to Rabbi school? Did Barabbas continue to follow the master and did his wife and children join him? Was Pontius Pilate able to forget about his decision to crucify Jesus and did he become the strong ruler his wife wanted him to be? These and other questions are answered in this volume. The new characters added include Saul, who becomes Paul, Herod Agrippa, the nephew of Herod Antipas, who wants to take over the latter's territory, and Caligula, the crazy son of Emperor Tiberius and friend of Agrippa. Against the background of suspicion and treachery within the empire and disdain for and persecution of the new faith, the Church continues to grow and flourish. Follow the travels of Manaheem as he tries in vain to convert the two Herods. Follow the machinations of Herod Agrippa in his aim to take over his uncle's territory. Follow the foibles of Pilate as he seeks to become a stronger ruler, while still regretting his decision to crucify Jesus. Follow the new life of Barabbas and his family. Follow the lives of Benjamin's family as they cope and deal with their loss and the now seeming impossibility of Joseph's schooling. Will he get to go to Rabbi school and what will it mean for their future? But mainly follow the early church as it grows in spite of persecution.
