<div><div>*Awarded the IndieBRAG Medallion for excellence in Independent Publishing.*<br /><br /></div><div><i>"A nail-biting page turner. The characters are compelling and real, the setting devastatingly dystopian, and the action-packed story, as original as anything I've read in a very long time. This is a big event series that should be a Hollywood franchise."-</i>-Jim Thompson, Original Content.</div><br /><b>THE END HAS COME AND THERE'S NOWHERE TO HIDE.</b><br />America is a wasteland, trapped in a suffocating volcanic winter. In sixteen-year-old Sera Donner's isolated Pacific Northwest town, thousands are dead and hundreds are missing, including her own mother. With precious resources running low, neighbor turns against neighbor, sparking a brutal civil war, and when the new survivalist regime decides Sera's disabled brother isn't fit to live, she picks up the rifle she's vowed never to touch, and fights to defend those she loves.<br />Mysterious Micah Abrams is Sera's only comfort in the chaos; Micah clings to an inexplicable hope that Sera finds hard to resist but difficult to understand. She longs to let down her guard and reveal to him a secret that's tearing her apart. But with the stakes higher than ever, can Sera really trust a schoolyard bully suddenly turned prophet?<br />As the battle over control of the community reaches a fevered pitch, a powerful military leader marches into town with an imposing force, offering food, water, and promises of salvation. Everyone thinks the worst is finally over.<br />They're wrong.<br /><div><br /><div></div><div><i>"A great story that happens to be set at the end of the world."</i>--Les Sillars, author of Intended For Evil<br /><br /></div></div></div><div><i></i></div><div><i></i></div><div></div><div><b>What readers are saying about The Goliath Code:</b></div><div><div><i>"Crazy good!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Captivating and Engaging!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Original and compelling." ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Great story!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"If you only read one book, this is the one!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Yes, read it!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"An epic franchise in the making." ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Could not put this book down!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"A must read!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Fascinating take on the apocalypse." ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Loved it!" ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭</i></div><div><i>"Great characters.

<b>The <i>New York Times </i>bestseller!<br /><br />Discover Aly Raisman's inspiring story of dedication, perseverance, and learning to think positive even in the toughest times on her path to gold medal success in two Olympic Games--and beyond.</b><br /> <br />Aly Raisman first stepped onto a gymnastics mat as a toddler in a "mommy & me" gymnastics class. No one could have predicted then that sixteen years later, she'd be standing on an Olympic podium, having achieved her dreams.<br /> <br />Aly's road to success was full of hard work, perseverance, and victories, but not without its hardships. Aly faced many obstacles, from naysayers who said she'd never make it in gymnastics to classmates who shamed her for her athletic body to a devastating betrayal of trust. Through it all, Aly surrounded herself with supportive family, friends, and teammates and found the inner strength to remain positive and believe in herself. Now, in her own words, Aly shows what it takes to be a champion on and off the floor, and takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey before, during, and after her remarkable achievements in two Olympic Games--through her highest highs, lowest lows, and all the moments in between. <br /> <br />Honest and heartfelt, frank and funny, Aly's story is enhanced with never-before-published photos, excerpts from the personal journals she's kept since childhood that chronicle memorable moments with her teammates, and hard-won advice for readers striving to rise above challenges, learn to love themselves, and make their own dreams come true. <br />

<b>Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget. </b><br /><br />Janner Igiby, his brother Tink, their crippled sister Leeli are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice and pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.<br /><br /> Andrew Peterson spins a quirky and riveting tale of the Igibys’ extraordinary journey from Glipwood’s Dragon Day Festival and a secret hidden in the Books and Crannies Bookstore, past the terrifying Black Carriage, clutches of the horned hounds and loathsome toothy cows surrounding AnkleJelly Manor, through the Glipwood Forest and mysterious treehouse of Peet the Sock Man (known for a little softshoe and wearing tattered socks on his hands and arms), to the very edge of the Ice Prairies. <br /><br /> Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, <i>On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness</i> presents a world of wonder and a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers’ groups are sure to discuss for its layers of meaning about life’s true treasure and tangle of the beautiful and horrible, temporal and eternal, and good and bad.

<p><strong>My name is Jaquelle, and I'm a teenager.</strong></p> <p>I like football movies, sushi, and dark chocolate. But the biggest, most crucial, most significant thing about me is that my life’s task is to follow Jesus. He is the One who changed my life.</p> <p>That’s what this book is about.</p> <p>It’s for teenagers eager to reject the status quo and low standards our culture sets for us. It’s for those of us who don’t want to spend the adolescent years slacking off, but rather standing out and digging deep into what Jesus says about following him. This book will help you see how the truth about God changes everything—our relationships, our time, our sin, our habits, and more—freeing us to live joyful, obedient, and Christ-exalting lives, even while we’re young.</p>

<B><I>Jesús te llama</I></B><B> es un devocional lleno de tesoros excepcionalmente inspirados del cielo para cada día del año.</B><BR>Después de muchos años de escribir en su diario de oración, la misionera Sarah Young decidió "escuchar" a Dios con pluma en mano, poniendo por escrito cualquier cosa que creyó que Él le decía. Fue embarazoso al principio, pero poco a poco sus encuentros diarios cambiaron de monólogo a diálogo. Ella sabía que sus escritos no eran inspirados como lo son las Sagradas Escrituras, pero estos encuentros escritos le ayudaron a crecer en su acercamiento a Dios. Otras personas han sido bendecidas al ella compartir sus escritos, de tal manera que personas en todo el mundo están usando sus mensajes. Estos están escritos desde el punto de vista de Jesucristo, de ahí el título <I>Jesús te llama.</I> Es la oración ferviente de Sarah que nuestro Salvador bendiga a los lectores en abundancia con su presencia y su paz.
