Some Weather Wardens control fire, others control earth, water, or wind – and the most powerful can control more than one element. Without Wardens, Mother Nature would wipe humanity off the face of the earth... Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather.

Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful Warden. Unfortunately, he’s also on the run having stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn – making him the most wanted man on earth.

This Xanth villain is full of hot air. “Anthony’s unflagging sparkle, verve and wordplay spin everyday trials of Mundane life into storytelling gold” (Publishers Weekly). A fickle flux in the fabric of space has allowed a horrendous hurricane to blast into Xanth, stirring up mischief and madness wherever she goes. Trapped in a preposterous form by a cosmic wager, the Demon X(A/N)th must join forces with a vexatious vixen named Chlorine to save Xanth from this terrifying and tempestuous threat. Their companions on this haphazard quest are a hapless human family—Jim and Karen Baldwin and their two teenage sons, David and Sean—gusted into Xanth from the mundane world beyond. Together they encounter a host of turbulent misadventures as they struggle to keep Xanth from being blown off the map forever. “Just the thing for pun-happy funsters.” —Kirkus Reviews

To find a dangerous grimoire, they'll have to break a few rules...and maybe their hearts. When warlock Tony Castillo picks up Cassandra Sandoval at the airport, the copper-haired witch brings his restless, aimless life into razor-sharp focus...and triggers a wince-inducing case of foot-in-mouth disease. Luckily, her cool, hazel-green gaze betrays not a flicker of answering attraction. Nope, Cassandra is all business. Which Tony can understand, given the magnitude of her task. Cassandra has one job: retrieve the de la Paz grimoires from the heavily warded hiding place at Tony's family home, conceal them with her unique shielding power, and immediately return them to her clan's territory. Easy. Quick. No time for anything to go wrong, to give in to the temptation of a too-handsome warlock. They find Tony's mother unconscious and the grimoires missing, the only clue a slimy residue reeking of Escobar magic. As they race to get the dangerous books out of the wrong hands, Cassandra and Tony cross a few boundaries, break a few more rules, and find something neither expected - love. But if they fail, nothing will shield them, or the world as they know it, from unrelenting evil. Note: An Ill Wind is a standalone, no-cliffhangers romance in the Witches of Canyon Road series. It takes place approximately four months after the events of book 5, Demon Born.

To convey a synopsis of the subject matter is not a simple thing to achieve,at least for me.The theme of commission in itself is a topic that implies authority and a chain of command.A commission is a mandate,a task,an authorization,or even a permit to accomplish a specific job on behalf of a higher authority. The commission of the church is a mission that has been given to God's people to attain as an individual body as well as a corporate body.God's people must understand what the purpose for their existence really is. This book embarks on a quest to simplify every aspect of the purpose and the mission of the body of Christ,answering such questions as:(1)What is your reasonable service as an individual in the corporate body of Christ? (2)What does it really mean to be part of the Church? (3)What is the relationship between the Head and the body? All of these questions and more will be broken down to its simplest expression. The human body consist of literally millions of cells and many organs,the great commission revealed is on a quest to disclose how as individuals in the body of Christ you and me make up cells and organs in the body of the anointed.

Gabriella Berryngton is an unhappy and oppressed fourteen-year-old girl living in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1683. She dreams of escaping her bitter, ambitious stepfather and sailing off into the unknown. Her dreams come true when her stepfather sells her into marriage. Aboard the Freyja, she is hopeful that her new life in the Dutch West Indies will be an improvement - a hope that dies when she is given a slave, Klara, and a whip. She discovers that her soon-to-be father-in-law is a ruthless slave trader in league with pirates, and her fiance is cold, unfriendly and disinterested in Gabriella. She is little more than a vessel to provide the next generation of van Eckens. Largely ignored and desperately unhappy, she and Klara develop a friendship which makes life bearable - at first. Once married, Gabriella's life takes a turn for the worse and she descends into a world of horror and abuse until tensions finally explode. Life will never be the same and she has no choice but to take fate into her own hands.

Television journalist, Ava Barby's news scripts write themselves: Add X and Y, and any Z can be predicted. But while covering Egypt in 1983 during khamsin, the country's 50-day annual windstorm, her formula for predicting events fails. Reporting the discovery of a tomb, she is astounded that its pharaoh left this life without any treasure for the next. The desert yields her next surprise: A reclining megalith and its stone-faced guardian, half-seen through swirling sand. Epic unrest overtakes Egypt as khamsin continues, and Ava's astonishment grows apace with the upheaval. The murder, spying and mayhem that were just words in her news scripts become part of her life . . . and the turmoil masks a plot that changes Egypt's destiny as relentlessly as it changes Ava's.

After a freak storm, a long buried body is discovered in the grounds of a Jacobean mansion run by the National Trust. Detective Inspector Hambley needs to find out the identity of the deceased as well as the manner of his death. Progress in the case is not helped by the un-cooperative attitude of the aristocratic family who once owned Chelford Manor. It is only when a murder takes place in a London flat that links another member of the family, a world famous violinist, to this case, that Hambley begins to unravel the first mystery. He puts his career on the line by involving himself in the second case even though it is not in his area. He is greatly assisted by a fiercely feminist, ambitious, and astute female detective constable whose intuitions lead to the linking of the two cases and an eventual solution.

Hard-hitting veteran reporter Deuce Mora is awakened in the pre-dawn hours and called to the scene of a gruesome hanging to identify the body of a dear friend, an FBI agent on the verge of taking down one of Chicago's biggest Mob operations. Deuce knows it's murder, but the authorities have no choice but to call it a suicide - the death scene was triple-locked from the inside. And with that, author Heller, a former journalist and frequent Pulitzer nominee, takes her place with Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, and the great Edgar Allan Poe himself as one of the few authors ever to pull off a locked-room murder. In this one, half the fun is trying to figure out the locked-room puzzle. And the delight of finding one in a contemporary mob mystery. The other half, of course, is the tenacious Deuce herself, the tough, hard-boiled, and ever-human reporter who goes places the cops don't even know about. And Heller's intricate, action-packed mystery story. The ill wind sweeping the Windy City has also whipped up two more unexplainable deaths - of perfectly healthy, able-bodied young mobsters, key witnesses about to flip on the top leaders of the Mob operation. Neither the Chicago police nor the FBI can come up with a cause of death - and they've looked at every kind of toxin - but our meticulous investigator, whose stock-in-trade is death-defying leaps of logic, fits together a couple of impossible puzzle pieces. The downside is that the bad guys figure out where their greatest exposure lies - and Deuce quickly becomes their new target. Enter a Washington reporter who has been following the organized crime investigation for months at its source, in D.C. He and Deuce share a dark secret and he knows exactly where to apply pressure on her demons to keep her on the trail of her friend's murderers. But as the Windy City begins to look more and more like the Chicago of Al Capone days, with bodies turning up in the river and shoot-outs in public places, Deuce discovers she couldn't walk away even if she wanted to. Whoever is at the top - and this is Chicago, so the top is always way up - will stop at nothing to shut down this investigation.
