An amnesiac writer's life of lies and false memories reaches a breaking point in this stunning English-language debut from an award-winning Croatian author. As a novelist, Matija makes things up for a living. Not yet thirty, he's written two well-received books. It's his third that is as big a failure as his private life. Unable to confine his fabrications to fiction, he's been abandoned by his girlfriend over his lies. But all Matija has is invention. Especially when it comes to his childhood and the death of his father. Whatever happened to Matija as a young boy, he can't remember. He feels frightened, angry, and responsible... Now, after years of burying and reinventing his past, Matija must confront it. Longing for connection, he might even win back the love of his life. But discovering the profound fears he has suppressed has its risks. Finally seeing the real world he emerged from could upend it all over again.

In Volume I, of Sons of the Dark Mother, The Fallen One, Book 2, Once an ancient race brought forth her children to be the Children of the Earth. Yet, some became dissatisfied with sharing the power of the stone--and the Dark Cloth was born. Now, the four princes of the earth must stop those who would destroy the mother in their greed and quest to own the power of all. Justice is the dark prince of fire--and Jess is his mate...and so the story continues.... In Volume 1 of 4 of Season 1, of this dark urban novella, Jes grew up that fateful day, eight years before, when her father told her to stay in the car. Having her father's love for investigating, she got out of the car for just one peek--and what she saw that day changed the course of her life. Jes always knew about her people, the Jaguar People who were one of the ancient races. After all, she was born Jaguar. The Jaguar People were only one of the many ancient races who swore a duty to safeguard Mother Earth--even if, sometimes, that meant protecting her from the humans themselves Yet because the People are her guardians--there to preserve the Mother--nothing prepared Jes for that day, as a child, when she saw what could happen when one of her People went rogue. After all, they were here to look after the Mother--and that included the humans. They were not there to hunt--and take lives. That day put Jes on his path, and she did everything in her power to bring him down. Yet, in doing so, even Jes hasn't prepared to face the prophecy. And even though she knows the prophecy foretells of four princes, the sons of the dark mother, who rise up with a nation of old vamps to stop the rogue factions from ruling over mankind--she is in no way prepared for the man who challenges everything she believes--to face her own destiny.... In the hidden realms of this world lies a secret that could destroy the human race… Jess refuses to give up her search for the boy she once loved, who destroyed her dreams and betrayed the Jaguar People when he killed one fateful day seven years before. It's a hunt that brings her face-to-face with the secrets of her past…and brings her back to the Alliance and the hidden palace that holds her people. But can she let go of the past and embrace this chance they've been given to begin again? (Sister Series to Cat People, Jaguar Witch and Daughters of the Circle) Review "I'm a big fan of the paranormal /dark fantasy genre but that's not why I liked this book so much. From the very beginning The Fallen One has an eerie gothic atmosphere and as the plot moves forward the tale becomes even spookier. The characters are deep and described in such vivid detail that I had no trouble imagining them. The setting is unique, and the background story is something that hasn't been done before. What impressed me the most, however, was the writing. ..."by Best Selling Author Jayde Scott vampire romance, witch and vampire romance, young adult vampires and shifters, new adult vampire and witch magic, witch fantasy, paranormal witch fantasy, paranormal vampire dark urban fantasy

Bringing a feminist perspective to contemporary findings of geneticists and archeologists, Lucia Chiavola Birnbaum, cultural historian, points out that the oldest veneration we know is of a dark mother of central and south Africa, whose signs-ochre red and the pubic V-were taken by african migrants after 50,000 BCE to caves and cliffs of all continents. The oldest sanctuary in the world was created in 40,000 BCE by african migrants in Har Karkom, later called Mt. Sinai, foundation place of judaism, christianity, and islam.Lucia documents the continuing memory of the dark mother and her values in prehistoric images of the dark mother, in historic black madonnas and in other dark women divinities whose sanctuaries are on african paths. She tracks the memory in rituals and stories of her sicilian grandmothers, in persecution of dark others in patriarchal Europe and the United States, in the rise of nonviolent dark others since the 1960s,in the banners of the 1995 world conference of women at Beijing, and in art. She finds the dark mother's values-justice with compassion, equality, and transformation-in everyday and celebratory rituals of the world's subaltern cultures-and suggests that the image and values are in the submerged memories of everyone.

Far distant from the world that Che-Avana knew as home, Medea, Mother Earth, rages. Every bite of flame and pick axe is a torture to her, every man and woman who walks upon her is an abomination. She wreaks her hatred on those who struggle to survive, unwittingly condemning them to the hardest of lives. Amongst the turmoil two lives entwine unwillingly together, at first driven by the need to survive, but eventually with the understanding that they hold the key to unlocking the greatest secret in the world. And of Che-Avana? He has his own battles to fight against an evil that stalks him through the Everdark.

There are eight seasonal festivals (referred to as sabbats) that make up the ""Wheel of the Year"". ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" draws on the author's own personal experience of following a traditional Pagan spiritual path and creating ritual over 20 years in southern Australia. Combining traditional Pagan lore with history in order to develop a relationship with her local environment, the author also offers invaluable pointers as to how to incorporate the localised elements into something that also provides a ?traditional? feel. ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" not only provides an in-depth look the folklore and myth associated with each sabbat, but also discusses ways of creating specific rituals and observances that acknowledge each seasonal ?gateway? when the local environment is reflecting something completely different. ""Dancing the Sacred Wheel"" challenges the reader, regardless of which hemisphere they reside, to draw inspiration from their environment, and to create their own unique Wheel of the Year.
