<b>Book one of the <i>New York Times</i>-bestselling All Souls trilogy—"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of <i>Harry Potter</i> and <i>Twilight</i>” (<i>People</i>). </b><br /> <b> </b><br /><b>Now “[a] hot show that’s like <i>Twilight</i> meets <i>Outlander</i>” (<i>Thrillist</i>) <b>airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, as well as streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.</b></b><br /><br /> Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, <i>Ashmole 782</i>, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.<br /><br /> Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, <i>Shadow of Night</i>, and concludes with <i>The Book of Life</i>.

<p>Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed or ineffectively treated—or that medical communities can’t resolve. And he’s done it all by listening to a divine voice that literally speaks into his ear, telling him what is at the root of people’s pain or illness and what they need to do to be restored to health.In his first book, the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Medical Medium</i>, Anthony revealed how to treat dozens of illnesses with targeted healing regimens in which nutrition played a major role. <i>Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods</i> delves deeper into the healing power of over 50 fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods that can have an extraordinary effect on health. Anthony explains each food's properties, the symptoms and conditions it can help relieve or heal, and the emotional and spiritual benefits it brings. And for each food, he offers a delicious recipe to help you enjoy its maximum benefit, from sweet potatoes with braised cabbage stuffing to honey-coconut ice cream and chewy apricot bars.</p><p>You’ll discover:</p><p>• Why wild blueberries are the “resurrection food,” asparagus is the fountain of youth, and lemons can lift your spirits when you’ve had bad news</p><p>• The best foods to eat if you have gallstones, hypertension, brain fog, thyroid issues, or migraines—plus hundreds more symptoms and conditions that may be holding you back</p><p>• The particular healing powers of kiwis, cucumbers, cat’s claw, coconut, and much more</p><p>• Insight into cravings, how to use stress to your advantage, and the key role fruit plays in fertility</p><p>Much of Anthony’s information is dramatically different from the conventional wisdom of medical communities, and much of it has never appeared anywhere before. So don’t expect to hear the same old food facts rehashed here. Instead, expect to get a whole new understanding of why oranges offer more than just vitamin C—and a powerful set of tools for healing from illness and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe and well.</p>

<p>Magick is easier and safer than many people believe, and pathworking is a method that takes you to the essence of power.</p><p>There are many ways of working with demons. The spirits of <em>Goetia</em> can bring knowledge, manipulate reality, produce changes within yourself, or attract conditions and events that you desire. This is widely known. Demons are famed for their speed, dignity, and willingness to cooperate with you.</p><p>What is less well known is that incredibly simple pathworking rituals enable you to make easy contact with these demons safely and reliably.</p><p><strong>Advantages of The Pathworking Method</strong></p><p>• No difficult words of power to learn or speak.<br />• Nothing to burn, collect, or make.<br />• No sacrifice, reward, or offering is required.<br />• No sigils need to be drawn, and you only need to look at the sigils in this book.<br />• No angels or divine names are used, which makes the magick feel more reliable for some people.<br />• The method automatically creates the correct state of mind and summons elemental energy.<br />• Pathworking can be performed in complete privacy.<br />• The method is extremely safe and easy to learn.</p><p>You will never have to learn difficult visualisation methods or train in demanding mental techniques. Based on a system of Elemental Imagery, this is a unique way to perform magick. You ask for something, and you get it, without any repercussion or payment.</p><p>People say you never get something for nothing. Here, you get something because you’ve performed magick and filled it with your desire. That is enough to get the results you seek, from love and lust, to cursing, influence, illusion, and wealth.</p>

<b>From<i> New York Times </i>bestselling author Rachel Held Evans comes a book that is both a heartfelt ode to the past and hopeful gaze into the future of what it means to be a part of the Church.</b><br /><b></b><br /><b></b><br />Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn't want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals--church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet, despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back to Church. And so she set out on a journey to understand Church and to find her place in it.<br /><br />Centered around seven sacraments, Evans' quest takes readers through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest.<br /><br />A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, <i>Searching for Sunday</i> is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church.

<b><b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. </b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don’t miss the hourlong Netflix special <i>Brené Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><br /><br />From thought leader Brené Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br /> <br /> <i>“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>”—</i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Brené Brown PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: “When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.”<br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena—whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

<p><em><strong>The only hope to keep her newborn baby alive is to reach the safety of her Indian people… This mountain man is the last person she should trust to get her there.</strong></em><br /></p><p>As a half-Indian raised among her Peigan tribe, Moriah Clark knows better than to trust white people. The tragedy that resulted in her birth is proof enough. But when her trusted grandfather marries her to a white man, she has no choice but to obey and hope this new life isn’t her downfall. Her white husband turns out to be a decent sort, but his unexpected death left her to birth a newborn baby among hostile mountain men. She wants nothing more than to retreat to the safe haven of her tribal upbringing. When a mysterious frontiersman arrives on her doorstep seeking her deceased husband, his offer to escort her and the babe to her people seems like the opportunity she’s been praying to find. But can she trust him?</p><p>Samuel Grant has been sent to retrieve Henry Clark for his sister’s wedding, but the sight that greets him at the little cabin in the woods is not what he expected. Not only has the man died, but Henry’s wife is fighting off an aggressive gang of men at gunpoint—while trying to conceal a newborn. He can’t leave the pair unattended, so helping her travel into the mountain country to reach her family seems like the only option. If he can win her trust, that is.</p><p>Such a grueling journey with a three-week-old baby will be risky, but the challenges that arise test them far more than either expected. When a devastating surprise increases the danger ten-fold, Moriah focuses all her efforts on keeping her newborn daughter alive. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t realize how much of her heart belongs to the mountain man—until it’s too late.</p>
