It all begins in Bacon's Corner, a tiny farming community far from the interstate.... An attempted murder, a case of mistaken - or is it covered up? - identity, and a ruthless lawsuit against a struggling Christian school. Sally Beth Roe, a young loner, a burnout, a kind of "leftover hippie", finds herself caught in the middle of these bizarre events, fleeing for her life while trying to recall her dark past. Across a vast panorama of heart-stopping action, Sally Roe's journey is a penetrating portrayal of our times, a reflection of our wanderings, and a vivid reminder of the redemptive power of the Cross. The intensity of this best-selling novel comes alive when read by author Frank Peretti.

The Shadow Lord has the Philosopher’s Stone and, therefore, an army of invincible penumbra. He also possesses the fragments of Excalibur, the legendary sword prophesied to be the instrument of either his own destruction, or that of the Child of the Prophecy. The sword, he knows, requires blood to be reforged...and he knows exactly whose blood he wants.Meanwhile, the Watchers are desperate to steal back the fragments of Excalibur and find out how to reforge them before the Shadow Lord does. Isdemus places Peter and Lily in Carlion’s sister cities for safe-keeping until the war begins. But Peter and Lily have an idea that might enable the Watchers to steal back the fragments, in spite of the Shadow Lord’s invincible army.Their plan requires them to travel halfway across the world, to an island largely believed to exist only in Greek mythology. Along the way, however, the Shadow Lord uses a pawn to convince Peter and Lily that they are powerless. Without their gifts of the Ancient Tongue, will either one of them stand a chance?In this gripping conclusion of the Piercing the Veil trilogy, the Watchers and the Shadow Lord both amass their ranks, the battle begins, and the true identity of the Child of the Prophecy is revealed - to the shock of all. 1.

Peter Stewart grew up on a unique version of the Arthurian legends taught him by his father, a harebrained quantum physicist who asserts that anything is possible. But Peter disbelieves anything which cannot be scientifically explained, despite a nagging sense that there is more to the world than meets the eye. Lily Portman is an orphan with a secret: she can see creatures that are invisible to everyone else. These creatures control every human being she has ever met to varying degrees...until she meets Peter and his father. When a mysterious stranger stages an accident which nearly costs Peter and Lily their lives, suddenly Lily learns that she is not crazy after all, and Peter discovers the truth of his father’s stories...including the existence of Arthur’s ancient nemesis, one who calls himself the Shadow Lord, and a prophecy with implications so profound that it will alter not only the course of their lives, but potentially the fate of the world. 1.

Vorgespielte Höhepunkte ist ein wahnwitziges Comedy Inferno über den jugen Mann ab 30, irgendwo in der bewegten Grauzone zwischen Hennes & Mauritz, Zungen-Piercing und nachlassender Gliedsteife. Auch Männer haben dann die ersten Diätorgien hinter sich und denken gelassen: "Warum soll ich verhungern, nur um ein paar Jahre länger zu leben? Red` ich mir halt ein, der Fettsack im Spiegel ist jemand anders !" Es gibt ja auch wichtigere Fragen: "Wie viele Freunde verdienen eigentlich mehr als du - ... aber hast du überhaupt Freunde ? 1.

The unruly world of rivalries during the middle ages was their perfect prey. With a fierce ambition to set their sails to distant shores, the Vikings had many truths to their realities. Dying of cowardice or from a shameful end was a fate worse than death. The Frankish world was expanding, and their gains from the losses of the greatest maritime powers was profound but prepared them for offensive battles. Thor and Odin strengthened them inside. But what drove them was the understanding that they would have to rise above their circumstances before they missed a chance to make history and demonstrate their battle fury and power: relentlessly puncturing the fight for control over Europe, wickedly guarding the Byzantine Empire, and prosperously trading furs building forts in "the land of forts". Their brutal raids, pricey Danegeld, and trade routes would enhance their reputations as the bloody Vikings in a medieval formation that stood to rule over men and master over slaves. 1.
