I am Levy Michaels. Once my kind were the hunters-now we are the hunted. Supernaturals are out of the closet but I have to stay hidden because of the type of magic I possess. I'm a Legacy. It sounds like the title should come with reverence, a trust fund, or at the very least a cool backstory-instead it comes with a death sentence. I have to hide in plain sight and pretend to be just human. I'm pretty good at it. I live a simple and somewhat normal life, and I work in antique acquisitions. Everything's going fine until a dangerous and enchanted dagger that was once in my possession is stolen. I didn't think things could get any worse until I woke up next to a dead shifter, fae, and mage, without any memory of the past twenty-four hours. Considered guilty of murder by most of the magical community and humans, I must work with Gareth, the sexy and dangerous leader of the Supernatural Guild. If he's as good as rumored, it's only a matter of time until he discovers the truth about me-then being found guilty of murder is the least of my worries.
No one said life was going to be easy, but mine just keeps getting harder. My best friend has been abducted by a madman who seems to have returned from the dead with the sole goal of seeking revenge against me. She's my friend, but she's also essential in finding a cure for a virus that has the potential to destroy the supernatural world. Did I mention there's a war brewing between supernaturals and humans? My people, the Legacy, were responsible for the first supernatural war, and now I'm tasked with preventing the second.

The only thing standing between me and death is my secret. I'm a Legacy-a secret I'd planned on taking to my grave. Gareth, the enigmatic leader of the Supernatural Guild, knows it, but can I trust him to keep it? When mysterious deaths occur as a result of magic that mimics my own, I no longer have to worry about Gareth exposing me - it will be one of my own that does. Another Legacy is causing the chaos, and I'm forced to hunt my own kind. It seems simple, but we've existed for as long as we have because we're better hunters than prey. I'm forced to work with Gareth to clear my name and find the Legacy responsible. Not only is my secret about to be revealed-so is his. Gareth is much more dangerous than I expected. Is he my friend or my enemy?
Secrets have consequences-and so do truths. I've been outed as a Legacy and there's nothing I can do but deal with the aftermath. I thought I could handle it-I was wrong. The city is in chaos, and I have more enemies than allies. Some that I once called allies have quickly become my betrayers. Just when I didn't think things could get any worse, Conner resurfaces and he's ready to make everyone pay. Especially me. He's the least of my worries: a supernatural assassin has been brought in to kill all the Legacy-and he's good at his job. One by one we are being killed off. Gareth, my only true ally, has his own problems dealing with another group that is set on ridding the world of supernaturals. Unless I can get the assassin before he gets me and Gareth can stop an organization bent on xenophobic destruction, we don't stand a chance in hell of surviving this.

In Lee Kelly’s “electric” (Publishers Weekly) fantasy novel, two young sorcerers experiment with magic and mobsters in 1920s Prohibition when a new elixir is created that turns their lives upside down. Washington, DC, 1926. Sorcery opponents have succeeded in passing the 18th Amendment, but the Prohibition of magic has only invigorated the city’s underworld. Smuggling rings carry magic contraband in from the coast. Sorcerers cast illusions to aid mobsters’ crime sprees. Gangs have even established “magic havens,” secret venues where the public can lose themselves in immersive magic and consume a mind-bending, highly addictive elixir known as “the sorcerer’s shine.” Joan Kendrick, a young sorcerer from the backwoods of Norfolk County, accepts an offer to work for DC’s most notorious crime syndicate, The Shaw Gang, when her family’s home is repossessed. Alex Danfrey, first-year Federal Prohibition Unit trainee with a complicated past and talents of his own, becomes tapped to go undercover and infiltrate the Shaws. When Joan meets Alex at the Shaws’ magic haven, she discovers a confidante in her fellow partner and he begins to fall under her spell. But when a new breed of the addictive sorcerer’s shine is created within the walls of the magic haven, Joan and Alex are forced to question their allegiances as they become pitted against one another in a dangerous, heady game of cat-and-mouse.
Miri is the non-twin child in a family with two sets of them--older brothers and younger sisters. The family has just moved to an old farmhouse in a new town, where the only good thing seems to be Miri's ten-sided attic bedroom. But when Miri gets sent to her room after accidentally bashing her big brother on the head with a shovel, she finds herself in the same room . . . only not quite. Without meaning to, she has found a way to travel back in time to 1935 where she discovers Molly, a girl her own age very much in need of a loving family. A highly satisfying classic-in-the-making full of spine-tingling moments, this is a delightful time-travel novel for the whole family.

This compelling volume explores how war magic and warrior religion unleash the power of the gods, demons, ghosts, and the dead. Documenting war magic and warrior religion as they are performed in diverse cultures and across historical time periods, this volume foregrounds embodiment, practice, and performance in anthropological approaches to magic, sorcery, shamanism, and religion. The authors go beyond what magic ‘represents’ to consider what magic does. From Chinese exorcists, Javanese spirit siblings, and black magic in Sumatra to Tamil Tiger suicide bombers, Chamorro spiritual re-enchantment, tantric Buddhist war magic, and Yanomami dark shamans, religion and magic are re-evaluated not just from the practitioner’s perspective but through the victim’s lived experience. These original investigations reveal a nuanced approach to understanding social action, innovation, and the revitalization of tradition in colonial and post-colonial societies undergoing rapid social transformation.
The definitive text on microwave ring circuits-now better than ever For the past three decades, the ring resonator has been widely used in such applications as measurements, filters, oscillators, mixers, couplers, power dividers/combiners, antennas, and frequency-selective surfaces, to name just a few. The field has continued to expand, with many new analyses, models, and applications recently reported. Microwave Ring Circuits and Related Structures has long been the only text fully dedicated to the treatment of ring resonators. The second edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the most current developments in the field. In addition to updating all the original material, the authors have added extensive new coverage on: * A universal model for both rectangular and circular ring configurations * Applications of ring structures for all types of planar circuits * A new transmission line analysis * An abundance of new applications in bandpass and bandstop filters, couplers, oscillators, and antennas While retaining all the features that made the original text so useful to both students and teachers in the field, the second edition seeks to introduce the analysis and models of ring resonators and to apply them to both the old and the new applications, including microstrip, slotline, coplanar waveguide, and waveguide transmission lines. Based on dissertations and papers published by graduate students, scholars, and research associates at A&M University, Microwave Ring Circuits and Related Structures, Second Edition is sure to be a valuable addition to both engineering classrooms and research libraries in the field.
