|From the back of the book: Kilgallan - a small, quiet community on Ireland s west coast. Things at Donovan s Bar get a little raucous sometimes and the people carry their share of Ireland s tragic history, but in Kilgallan, the fights are happy, the songs are sad and the days are as rich as slow-poured, peaty beer.|
It happens first to the children.
To little Mikey Boyle, whose auntie takes off all her clothes, takes his off too, and persuades him into the river...
To sweet Marie Lally, barely sixteen, when Mike O Hara ties the cord around her neck and slides up her nightgown...
Village tragedies. Casual eruptions of horror... but at the heart of a nearby hill, something turns in its sleep.
The Shee will put her fingers into your dreams and leave you crying for more.

|Exhibiting enormous power or inspiring incredible devotion, throughout history beauty has been women s chief asset. Each age has required its own standard - a gleaming white brow during the Renaissance, the black eyebrows considered charming in the early 18th century, or the thin lips thought desirable to the Victorians. For those naturally blessed, their beauty could ensure a good marriage, offer social mobility, fame or notoriety whereas those without such obvious gifts would resort to any ends to achieve an illusion of beauty.|
Ours is not the only age when beauty is celebrated but also judged and quantified. From the color of the ear to the transparency of the teeth the benchmark for every aspect of beauty has been set and women - and some men - have applied themselves wholeheartedly risking their lives using poisonous chemicals, their fortunes at the risk of blackmail, or the wrath of God, to reach the desired targets.
From Queen Elizabeth I who used dangerous quantities of white lead to give her complexion the illusion of a youthful lustre, to Marilyn Monroe who blended 4 shades of lipstick to emphasise her perfect pout this book will examine some of the more unusual cosmetic practices contemplated in beauty s name.

|Jason Freeman has gotten used to the fact that beneath its glamorous surface, DeVere Heights is full of unexpected secrets. And vampires. Then just when he thinks he s golden, he s attacked. With a crossbow.|
At first the attention Jason gets from his crush, Sienna, makes the wound almost worthwhile -- especially after she breaks up with Brad. But the crossbow-wielding lunatic isn t finished, and his next victim is found dead with a bolt through the heart.
As tensions rise at DeVere High, suspicions about the attacker point to pretty much anyone. There s something cold and hard in Brad s eyes-the look of a killer? Nah....

|Every man was once a boy. And every little has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.|
But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored.
John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, "Wild at Heart," and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer. John Eldredge is the director of Ransomed Heart.
