The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Year One and Of Blood and Bone concludes her stunning new trilogy praised as "A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King's The Stand." After the sickness known as the Doom destroyed civilization, magick has become commonplace, and Fallon Swift has spent her young years learning its ways. Fallon cannot live in peace until she frees those who have been preyed upon by the government or the fanatical Purity Warriors, endlessly hunted or locked up in laboratories, brutalized for years on end. She is determined to save even those who have been complicit with this evil out of fear or weakness--if, indeed, they can be saved. Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal--and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy's stronghold, and pursues her destiny--to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all--she will need an army behind her...

The Dawn of Magick is the first story of Donothor. The tragic fantasy chronicles the lives and deeds of many ilks of the world Sagain. Threads of fate and Magick intertwine the doomed world of sorcery with three other worlds. When the story begins, Sagain is a pastoral mundane world dominated by preternatural beings called Old Ones. Nature's most powerful forces foment a cataclysm and kindle the flicker of Magick. The flicker grows into a blaze and creates great artifacts. The power of Magick descends along family lines. As sorcerers live longer and grow more powerful, greed and competition lead to conflict. Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery choose leaders and allies, create citadels and seven fantastic wonders, and rip Sagain and its people through their ageless conflict. Spells cast by avaricious sorcerers bring forces of evil to Sagain. This begins a conflict that stretches across space and time. Powerful spells enable the imprisonment of consummate evil and facilitate the escape of a fortunate few from the doomed world. What is the source of Magick? What are the powers of the thirteen and two staves? What roles have the mysterious Old Ones, the old wanderer Confusious, Iyaca Vassi, and the Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery in the story? Does only evil lurk behind the dark walls of Koorlost, the citadel of Dark Sorcery? Does only good reside within the alabaster walls of the Laurels and its Tower of Radiance, the citadel of Light Sorcery? Are dragons, the great wyrms of the skies, good or evil? What threads connect four worlds? Ripples that began long ago in a doomed world create great waves in Donothor, Parallan, and...a blue world. The story continues in Deathquest to Parallan, the Orb of Chalar, the Death of Magick, and the Chalice of Mystery.

Contending that early modern fictional portrayals of sexual violence identify the position of the author with that of the chaste woman threatened with rape, Amy Greenstadt challenges the prevalent scholarly view that this period's concept of 'The Author' was inherently masculine. Instead, she argues, the analogy between rape and writing centrally informed ideas of literary intention that emerged during the English Renaissance. Analyzing works by Milton, Sidney, Shakespeare and Cavendish, Greenstadt shows how the figure of 'The Author' - and by extension ideas of the modern individual--derived from a paradigm of female virtue and vulnerability. This volume supplements the growing body of studies that address the relationship between early modern textual representation and notions of gender and sexuality; it also adds a new dimension in considering the wider origins of modern concepts of selfhood and individual rights.

From their haunts in the shadowy corner of a bar, front and center at a convenience store, or reigning over a massive mall installation bursting with light, sound, and action, arcade games have been thrilling and addicting quarter-bearers of all ages ever since Pong first lit up its paddles. Whether you wanted a few minutes’ quick-twitch exhilaration or the taste of three-initial immortality that came with topping the high score screen, you could get it from the diverse range of space shooters, dot-eating extravaganzas, quirky beat-’em-ups, and more that have helped define pop culture for more than four decades. In Attract Mode: The Rise and Fall of Coin-Op Arcade Games, author Jamie Lendino celebrates both the biggest blockbusters (Pac-Man, Star Wars: The Arcade Game) and the forgotten gems (Phoenix, Star Castle) of the Golden Age of coin-op gaming, and pulls back the curtain on the personalities and the groundbreaking technologies that brought them to glitzy, color-drenched life in the U.S., Japan, and all over the world. You’ll start your journey exploring the electromechanical attractions and pinball games of the early 20th century. Next, you’ll meet the earliest innovators, who used college computers and untested electronics to outline the possibilities of the emerging form, and discover the surprising history behind the towering megahits from Nintendo, Sega, and others that still inform gaming today. Then you’ll witness the devastating crash that almost ended it all—and the rebirth no one expected. Whether you prefer the white-knuckle gameplay of Robotron: 2084, the barrel-jumping whimsy of Donkey Kong, or the stunning graphics and animation of Dragon’s Lair, Attract Mode will transport you back to the heyday of arcade games and let you relive—or experience for the first time—the unique magic that transformed entertainment forever.
