"Black Magic for Dark Times: Spells of Revenge and Protection" is for every good, decent person who has been the victim of violence, threats, fraud, official corruption or other crimes and is without a conventional form of redress. It is the first spell book especially for crime survivors. It was written to help you deal with situations in which every normal means of justice has been cut off. It is a black magic spell book for the times we live in - a time of pervasive injustice and rampant, unchecked crime and corruption. The terms "revenge" and justice" are both about bringing balance and harmony to a situation. Both words have similar meanings, but different connotations. Justice is balance and harmony brought about through the courts and the justice system. Revenge is balance and harmony brought about on an individual level. This book contains spells for both of these situations. When there is no justice, the conjurer can make it. When there is no way to identify the perpetrator by conventional means, he can be routed out using the often misunderstood science of magic. If you believe that all of the world is bent toward justice and karma will get the evil-doers in the end or they will be judged by God and burn in fire and brimstone forever, then this book is not for you. If you can reconcile living in a world with such people and the complete absence of justice by simply saying, "They'll get theirs someday," then put this book down and go back to sleep. Come back and read this book when you can face the truth, when you are filled with self-righteous anger and ready to invoke cosmic justice upon the perpetrators of evil acts with all the forces of Hell! Over 100 spells and formulas plus tips for making spells more effective. Includes spells to protect from and exact spiritual justice in cases of: Police brutality, judicial corruption, domestic violence, rape, stalking, harassment, unjust foreclosure and banking fraud, bullies at work and school, gossips, illegal checkpoints, airport security, government raids, home and travel protection, theft, bad neighbors, threats, creepy landlords, negative energies, unwanted house guests and - finally - how to heal from the trauma for survivors of violent crime. This is a unique spell book of practical magic especially for crime survivors and those dealing with official corruption, written in a conversational style. Part of the purpose of the book is to reawaken people to the idea that magic is a force for change in the real world.

Banished and raised in the barracks of Til-Garrion, Tannin is trained to lead armies, not rule a kingdom never meant to be his. Yet he is compelled to accept the royal mantle and join forces with the Elves—ancient enemies of his people. His life is solitary, he's not looking for a mate—that is until he meets Faëlwyn. Faëlwyn, a fierce elven princess, finds more than blood and war in the ancestral lands of her people. She finds a man who fascinates her with his attitude and tantalizes her with kisses. Now she must make an impossible choice. Take a chance on love with the human king or forever cling to the love she lost? As war creeps closer, Tannin and Fae hatch a cunning plan to strike at their enemies. Old ideals crumble and new alliances arise from ashes in a tale of love, war, and betrayal.
Pampered and hidden away from the world, Princess Desdemona Ravenmoore was taught to hate and fear the enemies of her mother, Queen Eranna. However, once striking out on her own, she unlocked the power burning deep within—the ability to create and control fire. With her newfound power and strength came the knowledge that her mother did not hide her away to protect her, but rather to prevent her from becoming the powerful being she was meant to transform into. One of the mightiest creatures in the universe. A Phoenix. Confronted with the truth of her mother’s treachery, Desmonda faces a choice: join the other princesses of Fallada to wage war against her mother, and reclaim their kingdom from the forces of darkness, or remain neutral and avoid being used for her power. Uncertain which path to follow, she fears that no matter what she decides, she will not be valued for the person she is, but for the weapon she can become if brought under someone’s control. Bear shapeshifter Malachi Voran lost everything when his mate and son were taken captive by the dark queen. Despite doing what was necessary to free them, his mate was lost to him forever. Since then, he has dedicated his life to the fight against Queen Eranna; an effort that includes helping Desdemona learn to harness and control her power. Yet, the more time he spends in her company, the more entranced he has become—not just by her power, but by the tempestuous feelings that being near her causes deep within him. With the battle lines drawn, Malachi is ready to fight for the liberation of the kingdom of Fallada. Whether or not he has the strength required to fight for the heart of a phoenix, is another matter entirely.
This book looks at explanations of the black arts as they existed during early medieval centuries in Western Europe. It objectively examines the historical development of magic and witchcraft and emphasizes the reality of these black arts. Stressing the historiographical significance of the modern literature of the occult, this book provides a solid display of the leading role of rationalism in modern literature. The author employs studies in anthropology and examinations of writings of medieval encyclopedists, code of pagan law, and the Church Fathers from the fourth to the eighth centuries. By remaining objective and employing such historiographical and theological details to his work, Duke creates a high quality and unique study which supports refutations of rationalist historians who see middle-age witchcraft as a delusion. His book will appeal to students and scholars of medieval history, as well as anyone interested in the black arts.

Black Mirror is a cultural phenomenon. It is a creative and sometimes shocking examination of modern society and the improbable consequences of technological progress. The episodes - typically set in an alternative present, or the near future - usually have a dark and satirical twist that provokes intense question both of the self and society at large. These kind of philosophical provocations are at the very heart of the show. Philosophical reflections on Black Mirror draws upon thinkers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Pierre Hadot and Michel Foucault to uncover how Black Mirror acts as 'philosophical television' questioning human morality and humanity's vulnerability when faced with the inexorable advance of technology.

In the year 1845, before the mystical land of Fallada was separated from the realm of men forever, the two worlds coexisted in harmony. Man could mingle freely in the world of the Elves and Faeries at will and peace reigned. In the hills of Shropshire, England, just miles from the gate separating the village of Ludlow from the world of mystical creatures, farmer’s daughter Zara Wells longs for answers. It is not only the golden hair that trail feet behind her, or the strange hue of her violet eyes that separates her from the other girls her village. There is something inside of her, something touched by magic that longs to know more about what lies on the other side of the gate. In Fallada, darkness has begun to spread. As the youngest and most beautiful girls of her village begin to disappear, Zara comes closer to discovering the true circumstances surrounding her birth. Little does she know, that the closer she comes to the answers she so desperately desires, the closer she will come to being ensnared in the dark queen’s web of growing treachery.

"The psychiatrist's insight and the storyteller's skill offer an absorbing tale."—Elie Wiesel "A book to read again and again with the same piety with which it has been written. A rare event in publishing: at once an accurate and documented historical study, and in the interpretation made by one of today's greatest psychologists of a strange and symbolic disease."—Primo Levi The Parnas recreates the final days of Giuseppe Pardo Roques, the lay leader, or parnas, of the Sephardic Jewish community of Pisa, Italy, who was killed in his home by the Nazis in August, 1944. Pardo was a mentor to the author, and, indeed, he was a figure adored and celebrated not only by the Jews of Pisa but by the Christians as well. He was learned and generous, but he was also profoundly phobic. Animals terrified him: so much so that he almost never left his house—except to go to the synagogue—for fear of encountering stray dogs or cats. At the outbreak of World War II, Arieti fled to America where he became a renown psychiatrist. But the parnas, despite a wealth of connections that could have helped him escape, was too phobic to flee Pisa. On the morning of August 1, 1944, Nazi soldiers, searching for Pardo's fabled riches, entered his home. The soldiers found neither gold nor silver, but they did find the parnas, along with six fellow Jews whom he was sheltering and five Christian neighbors. All were murdered. In The Parnas, Arieti imagines what took place in the home, and in the mind, of this devout, kindly, and tormented man in the last days of his life, providing, in the process, an overview of Italian Jewry. Arieti hopes to show "that tragic times have a perfume of their own, and smiles of hope, and traces of charm, and offer olive branches and late warnings that may not be too late." "This is one of the most extraordinary stories yet to reach us from the bitter ashes of Nazism…Dr. Arieti weaves his story so beautifully that to unravel it would mean losing its dramatic effect. Suffice it to say that God, Jews, Christians, fascism, cowardice, and bravery are discussed throughout the story in such a way that the reader is at once shaken and enlightened as the plot unfolds. It is like a parable, suffused with the dignity of both the parnas and the author…a work of art."—New York Times Book Review From the Foreword by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner: "In this brief, deceptively simple narrative, Arieti has told the story of Giuseppe Pardo, parnas (lay leader) of his native community of Pisa, and of his death at the hands of the Nazis. Pardo was the leading citizen of a small Jewish community that produced more that its share of distinguished Jews. He was a learned man, familiar with Bible, Talmud, and secular subjects. He was a wealthy man, and charitable to Jew and non-Jew alike. (He ultimately met his death together with six fellow Jews and five gentiles who had sought the protection of his home.) And he was a profoundly neurotic man, who had an irrational fear of animals, especially dogs. When he walked in the streets of Pisa—which was not often because of his fears—he would swing a cane from side to side behind him to drive away the imaginary animals. The distinguished psychiatrist tells of his strange life and equally strange death."
