The Dairne-Reih haven't been seen in Dionia for generations-their kind and their king, Morgui, banished long ago from haunting paradise. But when creation shows signs of deterioration, the kings of the seven realms converge in the sacred Gvindollion gathering to arrive at one inexplicable conclusion: Morgui has returned. In the hopes of entrusting Dionia's brave history and perilous future to a generation that has never known war, the kings decide to raise up their young sons as an elite group of warriors, known only as the Dibor. Gorn, legendary hero of the First Battle, is commissioned to teach the Dibor the art of war, leading them on a four-year adventure on the Isle of Kirstell. It is Luik, son of Lair, who soon emerges as the warband's spirited front man. But he is not the only one of his peers to grow in power; his dear friend Fane discovers hidden abilities among the Mosfar under the mentorship of Li-Saide of Ot, while Princess Anorra finds that her lifelong tutor knows as much about combat as he does about etiquette. There is little time for the Dibor to enjoy the satisfaction of graduation, however, as a sinister plot is discovered to dethrone Dionia's kings and flatten the capital city of Adriel. The Dibor are summoned to war, along with the rest of Dionia's fighting men. It is before the gates of Adriel Palace that Luik and his army face Morgui's prince, Valdenil, as well as the unending ranks of the Dairne-Reih.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Art Savvy is a systematic approach to understanding art. It gives you methods to assess a design and really see what the artist was doing. Unlike chaotic art writings, terms are clearly defined, categorized, organized and illustrated. It is designed to answer questions like: What things will allow me to understand art? What are the basic elements? What is concept art? Can you "read" a work of abstract art? Visual literacy is the ability to interpret, negotiate, and make meaning from information presented in art work. Art Savvy gives you this. Defining Terms: Often art terms are not clearly defined, are used interchangeably or get mixed up with other types of analysis. For a thorough exploration of all aspects of art, photos of great works are referenced with color keyed notations to illustrate the 5 easy pieces: 1. Design Elements- Visual grammar, line, shape, form, mass etc. - definitions & how to see them. 2. Organization Principles- How elements are arranged and how this effects the concept. 3. Style- Relation to other groups of work and formulas for design. 4. Technique- How methods and materials are used to impact the concept. 5. Concept- What this piece about. What major themes and elements were used. Assessment techniques in each section of Art Savvy will train your eye to always see these 5 aspects of any artwork. It is not attempting judgments of relevance, philosophy, spiritual meanings and other ethereal aspects that a work may convey. This text poses the question: "What is the basic concept here?" but sticks to pure analysis and leaves all judgment to you and the experts. This field guide is a mini textbook on design principles that will let you understand art!

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Simcha Guterman's, Leaves from Fire, is a firsthand account written with the deep sense of comprehension he was documenting the fate of his people. Knowing full well that his life was in danger, Simcha chronicled the occurrences of the Holocaust on long scraps of paper, as they happened right before his eyes. The events described take place in Poland, during the first years of World War II. The author stuffed long paper scraps, written in Yiddish, into bottles and hid in them in different places. One of these bottles was discovered after the war. Simcha Guterman's work has been published and translated into eight different languages, receiving high praise from critics. The book's evocative illustrations were drawn by Yaakov Guterman, the author's son.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"There are only two kinds of people who can tell you the truth about yourself. An enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly."-- Antisthenis, 445-365 B.C.Forever is the first part of the two-book Your Enemy, Your Friend series.It is about the relationship that you have with your life-partner today, despite aiming for something a little different all those years ago.This is not a romance novel or an erotic escapade, and may not be easily digestible at times. It is neither safe nor is it politically symmetrical, but that is exactly how it must be - if it is going to make a difference.Your Enemy, Your Friend - Forever, is an impetuous and unashamed departure from conventional belief frameworks, insubstantial value systems and counter-productive behavioural doctrines that systematically rob us of the two things most of us are constantly trying to acquire:Personal happiness & Relationship MadnessUnfortunately, most of us remain buried under deeply engrained, artificial, erroneous, and even obsolete 'way of being' constraints that covertly prevent us from ever obtaining those goals and will continue to do so until we can see them for what they really are. But, to see them we must shift our perspective - and for most of us that does not occur easily.It will require a firm nudge in our awareness by way of a compelling jolt that provokes us into action. That is exactly what this book Forever and the Your Enemy, Your Friend series - actually are; a compelling jolt consisting of thought provoking behavioural insights that expose antiquated 'way of life' notions and frameworks so that you can see them. What you do with that information is then entirely up to you.Personal happiness and relationship madness are just around the corner; but to acquire these precious commodities:We must unlearn who we think we are - so that we can relearn who we can become.
