Even though Shyla is sun-kissed - an outcast, considered cursed by the Sun Goddess - she is still renowned for uncovering innumerable archaic facts, lost artefacts, ancient maps, and obscure historical documents. Her quiet life is about to change when Banqui, an archaeologist, enlists her services to find The Eyes of Tamburah: legendary gemstones that bestow great magic on their wielder. These ancient objects can tip the balance of power and give whoever possesses them complete control of the city. But chaos erupts when The Eyes are stolen soon after they're found - and Shyla is blamed for the theft. Forced to flee, with the Prince's soldiers and the Priestess' deacons on her trail, Shyla must recover the jewels and clear her name.

One fateful afternoon, as he's picking the pockets of townspeople enraptured by a travelling haberdasher, he "discovers" (steals) a box of magical eyes. When he tries on the first pair, he is instantly transported to the island at the top of the world, where he meets the maker of the eyes, Professor Cake.

Peter chooses wisely, and together with Sir Tode, a knight errant who has been turned into a rather unfortunate combination of human, horse and cat by a grumpy witch, he embarks on an unforgettable adventure in a book destined to become a classic.

But I’d suffer anything to give my kid sister a better life—the minute I turn eighteen, I’m getting us the hell out of here. And some hot stranger telling me I am the key to stopping a war between Heaven and Hell isn’t going to change that. Let the world crumble and burn, for all I care. Draven is relentless, though. And very much a liar. Every time his sexy lips are moving, I can see it—in the dip of his head, the grit of his jaw—even if my heart begs me to ignore the signs. So what does he want? I need to figure it out fast, because now everyone is gunning for me. And damn if I don’t want to show them what happens when you let weeds thrive in the cracks of the pavement... We can grow powerful enough to shatter the whole foundation.

Book Summary: Is Lent about my devotion to Christ the crucified? Is Easter about my celebrating Christ risen from the dead? Do I measure my Christian life by some standard of piety and say I’m following Christ’s example? Lent...Easter...the whole Church year proclaims Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. Faith is trust in His blood-won forgiveness of the world’s sin. Through faith we fix our eyes on Jesus in our daily devotions, gathering in worship, and constancy in prayer. FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS walks you, the reader, through daily devotions from Ash Wednesday through Pentecost. See your need for repentance. Follow Jesus as He defeats Satan in the wilderness. Rejoice in the cross He leads you to bear as His disciple. For He has died once for you on the cross and shed His blood for you. He rose to daily proclaim you forgiven, washed, made alive in His Name. The crucifix shines Christ Jesus’ ongoing love for us. Yes, Jesus is risen, never to die again. Now, He who once bled and died sympathizes with us who daily walk through death’s dark shadow. I pray these devotions will encourage your Lent and Easter seasons. Heb. 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
