Simon Bolivar, who fought to free South America from Spanish rule from 1810 to 1826, was one of the most influential figures in Latin American history. His life contained all the makings of an epic war hero: repeated comebacks from defeat, flashes of military genius, a near-manic quest for glory, and fall from political grace. Here, the authors bring forth his story and show how it set the political pattern for the next century.

"Quincy Harker - demon killer, monster hunter, & kin to Dracula, yeah, THIS is who i want protecting the world! I love these books." - Academy Award Winner Whoopi Goldberg She gave up her divinity to save the world. Now Quincy Harker has to track down a bunch of missing Archangels to find Glory's wings. If only getting her wings back were as easy as ringing a bell. Also included - the Harker weird Western Short Story, Redemption Song, originally published in The Weird Wild West Anthology. They are humanity's defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are The Shadow Council. Damnation: Quest for Glory Book I collects the four novellas from Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter Year Three. The story concludes next year in Salvation: Quest for Glory Book II. Calling All Angels - This Shadow Council Case Files Novella features Jo Henry, great-granddaughter or legendary steel-driving man John Henry, as she searches for an angel in an underground cage fighting ring. Jo finds more than she bargained for when she stumbles across a fighter who is more than meets the eye. A "strong, in your face, woman of color. She pulls no punches and speaks her mind. What could be better than that?" Devil Inside - Quincy Harker takes center stage to battle a demon in the City of Churches. Harker hunts an angel in Charleston, but finds much more as he fends off attacks from local magic-users and a vengeful demon summoner determined to do to Charleston what General Sherman didn't - destroy it. "Another leg in this amazing journey. I have read every one of these books and I look forward to each one." Angel Dance - What brings Victor Frankenstein's most famous creation to New Orleans? Well, it ain't the cajun food, so it must be the jazz! Adam Franks searches the bayou and the back streets for an angel, but finds fire, murder, and blood instead in this Shadow Council Case Files novella. "Mr. Hartness has managed the seemingly impossible: he's made Frankenstein's monster almost human--relatable, vulnerable and caring--while still being able to kick some serious paranormal ass." Running with the Devil - We all have our quirks, but Quincy Harker gets downright fetishist in the finale to Book I. He descends into Purgatory, not the dimension, but the long-running roving party run by a man that might just be a lot more holy than his job would evidence. Then he's thwarted by a troupe of men (or more) dedicated to "bringing light." Harker learns a lot about the Original Lightbringer in this climactic cliffhanger of a season finale!

A musical tale of collegiate a cappella filled of high notes, high drama, and high jinks that inspired the hit films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Get ready to be pitch slapped. The roots of unaccompanied vocal music stretch all the way back to Gregorian chants of the Middle Ages, and collegiate a cappella is over a century old. But what was once largely an Ivy League phenomenon has, in the past twenty years, exploded. And it’s not what you think. Though the blue blazers and khakis may remain, a cappella groups at colleges across the country have become downright funky. In Pitch Perfect, journalist Mickey Rapkin follows a season in a cappella through all its twists and turns, covering the breathtaking displays of vocal talent, the groupies (yes, there are a cappella groupies), the rock-star partying, and all the bitter rivalries. Rapkin brings you into the world of collegiate a cappella characters—from movie-star looks and celebrity-size egos to a troubled new singer with the megawatt voice. Including encounters with a cappella alums like John Legend and Diane Sawyer and fans from Prince to presidents, Rapkin shows that a cappella isn’t for the faint of heart—or lungs. Sure to strike a chord with fans of Glee and The Sing-Off, this raucous story of a cappella rock stars shows that sometimes, to get that perfect harmony, you have to embrace a little discord. From the Trade Paperback edition.
