Book Summary:

"Kingdom of Lies is a brilliant and bold debut, as full of suspense as the best crime thrillers.” —Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Oath In the tradition of Michael Lewis and Tom Wolfe, a fascinating and frightening behind-the-scenes look at the interconnected cultures of hackers, security specialists, and law enforcement A 19-year-old Romanian student stumbles into a criminal ransomware ring in her village. Soon she is extorting Silicon Valley billionaires for millions--without knowing the first thing about computers. A veteran cybersecurity specialist has built a deep network of top notch hackers in one of the world’s largest banks. But then the bank brings in a cadre of ex-military personnel to “help.” A cynical Russian only leaves his tiny New Jersey apartment to hack sports cars at a high performance shop in Newark. But he opens his door to a consultant who needs his help. A hotel doorman in China once served in the People’s Army, stealing intellectual property from American companies. Now he uses his skills to build up a private side-business selling the data he takes from travelers to Shanghai’s commercial center. Kingdom of Lies follows the intertwined stories of cybercriminals and ethical hackers as they jump from criminal trend to criminal trend, crisis to crisis. A cybersecurity professional turned journalist, Kate Fazzini illuminates the many lies companies and governments tell us about our security, the lies criminals tell to get ahead, and the lies security leaders tell to make us think they are better at their jobs than they are. Like Traffic set in the cybercrime world, Kingdom of Lies is as entertaining as it is eye opening.

Book Summary:

In this “excellent fantasy debut, with engaging world-building and a good mix between action and character” (Brandon Sanders, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Stormlight Archive series), a story of secrets, rebellion, and murder are shattering the Hollows, where magic costs memory to use, and only the son of the kingdom’s despised traitor holds the truth. Michael is branded a traitor as a child because of the murder of the king’s nine-year-old son, by his father David Kingman. Ten years later on Michael lives a hardscrabble life, with his sister Gwen, performing crimes with his friends against minor royals in a weak attempt at striking back at the world that rejects him and his family. In a world where memory is the coin that pays for magic, Michael knows something is there in the hot white emptiness of his mind. So when the opportunity arrives to get folded back into court, via the most politically dangerous member of the kingdom’s royal council, Michael takes it, desperate to find a way back to his past. He discovers a royal family that is spiraling into a self-serving dictatorship as gun-wielding rebels clash magically trained militia. What the truth holds is a set of shocking revelations that will completely change the Hollows, if Michael and his friends and family can survive long enough to see it. In a “symphony of loyalty, greed, family, and betrayal” (Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Tempests and Slaughter) this spellbinding novel “creates a solid foundation for (hopefully) a much longer narrative to come” (Kirkus Reviews).

Book Summary:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new novel in her Blood and Ash series… Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance? A Betrayal… Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her. A Choice…. Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation. A Secret… But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

Book Summary:

Longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize In February 1940, the Nazis established what would become the second-largest Jewish ghetto in the Polish city of Lódz. Its chosen leader: Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, a sixty-three-year-old Jewish businessman and orphanage director -- and the elusive, authoritarian power sustaining the ghetto’s very existence. From one of Sweden's most critically acclaimed and bestselling authors, The Emperor of Lies chronicles the tale of Rumkowski's monarchical rule over a quarter-million Jews for the next four years. Driven by a titanic ambition, he sought to transform the ghetto into a productive industrial complex and strove to make it --and himself -- indispensable to the Nazi regime. Drawing on the detailed records of life in the Lódz ghetto, Steve Sem-Sandberg captures the full panorama of human resilience and probes deeply into the nature of evil. He asks the most difficult questions: Was Rumkowski a ruthless opportunist, an accessory to the Nazi regime driven by a lust for power? Or was he a pragmatic strategist who managed to save Jewish lives through his collaboration policies? Winner of the August Prize, Sweden’s most important literary award, The Emperor of Lies is a haunting, profoundly challenging novel.

Brad Meltzer--author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Fate--returns with his most thrilling and emotionally powerful novel to date. In Chapter Four of the Bible, Cain kills Abel. It is the world's most famous murder. But the Bible is silent about one key detail: the weapon Cain used to kill his brother. That weapon is still lost to history. In 1932, Mitchell Siegel was killed by three gunshots to his chest. While mourning, his son dreamed of a bulletproof man and created the world's greatest hero: Superman. And like Cain's murder weapon, the gun used in this unsolved murder has never been found. Until now. Today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Cal Harper comes face-to-face with his family's greatest secret: his long-lost father, who's been shot with a gun that traces back to Mitchell Siegel's 1932 murder. But before Cal can ask a single question, he and his father are attacked by a ruthless killer tattooed with the anicent markings of Cain. And so begins the chase for the world's first murder weapon. What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller

Book Summary:

This unique novel represents a collaboration between two greats of science fantasy writing, published for the first time on the SF Gateway. Between 1956 and 1962, John Brunner wrote three novellas that blurred the boundaries between science fiction and fantasy. Following Brunner's untimely death, Damien Broderick was given permission to develop these works into a full-length novel, expanding on the ideas and concepts that had captured his imagination when he first read them. The result is a story that blends the technological with the magical, and travels to different worlds and undiscovered parts of our own. Weaving together ideas from No Other Gods But Me, The Kingdom of the world and Father of Lies, Broderick takes us from the modern day Earth, across dimensions and into battle with cults, dragons, ogres and people with psychokinetic powers. This is a fantastic read for both fans of Brunner's original works and readers looking to be swept away on a new adventure.

Book Summary:

Inside the land of Miradel lies the Kingdom of Petroset, where a little boy tried to hide a horrible secret from everyone. Yet even as Tyson endures an unjust nightmare in the king’s court, he is strangely comforted by the warm eyes of the king’s daughter, Annaliessa. Tyson realizes that he and the beautiful girl share something in common— a father that never loved them. More than a decade later, Miradel is a land steeped in a witch’s curse that binds Princess Annaliessa to five princes. Forced to choose one to marry even though she is not in love with any of them, Annaliessa knows she must produce an heir to the throne soon or be forever bound to her father’s violent tendencies. As all five princes compete for her affection, Annaliessa secretly hopes for a miracle that will carry her away forever. When an earthquake strikes Petroset, Annaliessa thinks her wish is coming true as she escapes in the arms of her hero, Tyson, who saves her from certain death. Oblivious to what is happening around her, Annaliessa is about to become trapped in revenge’s web of lies and betrayal. Is one man’s love enough to save her from the scars revenge leaves behind? In this fantasy tale, temptation, sacrifice, and the power of unconditional love fuel a journey of self-discovery for a young woman who only wants one thing—true happiness.

Book Summary:

Even though there are many, many people that read the Scriptures and there are different interpretations of what the Scriptures mean, there is only one truth. The religions of the world are fooling the people of the world by trying to get money for teaching a false understanding of the Scriptures. This is the reason for this book. I wrote this book for the graduation of mankind into true spiritual wisdom and for the soul of those who live in righteousness. I didn’t write this book from inside any religion of any kind. I wrote this book for all people who desire to be with the Lord and understand his word. The power of this book is to understand the glory of human intelligence and to understand the Scriptures in spiritual value. In order to come to the understanding of spiritual value, you must translate the word of God into spiritual value. And I believe this book is the introduction of all mankind to the understanding of the Scriptures...not in the physical way but in the spiritual way.

The Hollows is on the brink of civil war as brother and sister vie for the throne in the second novel of the trilogy which Brandon Sanderson called “excellent.” “Simply put, this series is a master class in grand-scale storytelling. The future of epic fantasy is here—and this saga is it.” —Kirkus Review (starred review) Michael Kingman thought he was going to die by the executioner’s axe, forever labeled as a traitor. Still alive, and under the protection of the Orbis Mercenary company, Michael and his family and friends are deeply involved in the seemingly rival conspiracies that are tearing The Hollows apart. With the death of the King, both the Corrupt Prince and his sister Serena are vying for the throne, while the Rebel Emperor is spreading lies amongst the people, and all of them want Michael dead. This is a story of betrayal, murder, and rebellion, and in this direct sequel to the debut novel The Kingdom of Liars, also some hope for justice. For readers who love the intrigue and widening scope of epic fantasy like Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn and Brent Weeks’s The Black Prism, you will find your next must-read fantasy series in The Legacy of the Mercenary King.

Book Summary:

In the aftermath of Jesus' resurrection, the testimonies of those who had followed him were so bold and powerful that they turned the world upside down. What would happen if we lived with that same kind of faith today? In the first century, believer didn’t just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the faith of these new believers, they declared “they turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). In this follow-up to What If It's True? Charles Martin, a New York Times bestselling novelist, blends storytelling and teaching to explore the lives of the disciples in the aftermath of the Resurrection and as they spread the message of the Gospel and “turn the world upside down”, leading up to Paul’s ministry in Thessalonica. In his beloved lyrical style, Martin illuminates key moments from Scripture and shares stories from his own life as a disciple. Learn to become a believer who: Understands how the truth of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection so powerfully reshaped history Uses the lives of the disciples as inspiration to be the light in a dark world Lives every moment with the disciples’ same world-changing faith today Filled with supporting Scripture and beautiful examples of prayers to offer as supplications before the throne of grace, this book will show you what our world could look like if we lived as the disciples did: with an unwavering confidence in the power and presence of God.

Book Summary:

The New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs series turns her prodigious talents to this World War I standalone novel, a lyrical drama of love struggling to survive in a damaged, fractured world. By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained—by Thea’s passionate embrace of women’s suffrage, and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea’s brother, Tom, who runs the family farm. When Kezia and Tom wed just a month before war is declared between Britain and Germany, Thea’s gift to Kezia is a book on household management—a veiled criticism of the bride’s prosaic life to come. Yet when Tom enlists to fight for his country and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia’s responsibility. Each must find a way to endure the ensuing cataclysm and turmoil. As Tom marches to the front lines, and Kezia battles to keep her ordered life from unraveling, they hide their despair in letters and cards filled with stories woven to bring comfort. Even Tom’s fellow soldiers in the trenches enter and find solace in the dream world of Kezia’s mouth-watering, albeit imaginary meals. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy? Published to coincide with the centennial of the Great War, The Care and Management of Lies paints a poignant picture of love and friendship strained by the pain of separation and the brutal chaos of battle. Ultimately, it raises profound questions about conflict, belief, and love that echo in our own time.

Ranging from the mundane to the ethereal, the themes of Brock-Broido's first collection are interesting and sometimes startling. The poems range from those concerned with time, especially the conjunction of the past and the future; those influenced by things or places specifically American, poems that appear vaguely autobiographical; and those based on actual historical or contemporary events, usually involving, and often narrated by, a child.

Book Summary:

The Kingdom of God Come Upon You By: Richard Charles Carlson Author Richard Charles Carlson wrote this book for you to understand why things happen in this world whether it is good or bad. He wants other people to be happy and to accept others for who they are with love. You should have no room in your heart to hate anyone. Carlson’s main focus is to try to have a better understanding of what the Bible is all about from the beginning to the end. He uses scripture to show proof of his belief through faith of why people exist and our purpose. In the book, Carlson writes about the events before and after this universe was created. His main focus is on Jesus Christ and the war with Satan for people to understand good and evil and to then know good and evil by examining themselves. Carlson finds that everything in the Bible is very important, from the beginning to the end. He refers to it as “Jesus’ Book.” He discovers more about God’s kingdom by revelations through visage, dreams, and even through other people. Carlson sees the power of God’s kingdom through the peace in his heart that can only come from Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Carlson desires to bless his Father in the Highest of Heaven and gain more born-again children in His house. His Father wants all His children to have the knowledge of the wisdom of God, to join with Him in eternal life in Paradise forever. Carlson explains what kind of choice you want in life to be happy and how to rejoice forever. Within this book, Carlson keeps a humble state of mind while writing about his testimonies of confessions, to live without guilt and shame, and to continually praise the Lord Jesus Christ with a clean mind. He wants you to live your life to the Most High God Almighty and to be happy as well.

What would it be like to chat with one of the most influential theologians in history? Martin Luther’s Table Talk is a collection of over 900 statements Luther made during personal conversation with his friends and colleagues. The collection is organized into 48 topical sections and covers Luther’s thoughts on a wide variety of theological, personal and social issues. The original Table Talk manuscript was discovered by accident during a house renovation, after having been buried in the ground for safekeeping during the time of the book burning edict of Rudolphus II, who called for the destruction of all 80,000 copies of the book (at that time entitled Divine Discourses) and the death penalty for anyone in possession of it. It is a truly indispensable resource for anyone interested in the reformation and its founder.

Book Summary:

Every believer in Messiah Jesus Christ, indeed all his followers deserve to walk in the fullness of His truth. My primary purpose of writing this book ‘Babel of Lies” was to awaken every Christian who reads this book to the truth of his calling. This book will not only journey with you to unveil the influence the lies in the church but also guide the reader with divine wisdom on discerning and escaping these lies and also living above the dominion of Satan’s lies. 1. Jesus speaking to Pharisees, the religious leaders of his days, emphasized on the devils cunning ability to tell a lie so well because it stems from his inbuilt nature. We all need to ask ourselves, how many lies has the enemy deposited in our memory bank? Chances are these lies have become the new truth we believe in. Jesus speaking to the religious leaders said; “You are of your father the devil and your will is to do your fathers desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has nothing to do with the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he talks from his own character, for he is a liar and father of lies. (John.8:44) A lie is the expression of Satan’s nature. In the garden of Aden, he twisted the mind of Adam so so well that when he posed the question to Adam; did God say?? And followed it up with a bold lie, DIE? You shall not surely die! In other words, the all mighty is the one who is a liar and He is falsely threatening you with death By the time the devil was done with Adam, reality and truth in Adams mind had taken a paradigm shift to fantasy and deception. THE 4 PRINCIPLES OF LIES 1 Every lie a person believes in is associated with a corresponding fear projected into the mindset. 2 The lies a person believes in makes the devil larger in their lives than he is. 3 Every lie we believe in give the devil a foothold in the lives of the people lied to. 4 Through deception, the lies one believes becomes their standard of what is true. You will never know the truth until the truth becomes your life and your life becomes His. The truth requires absolute total surrender to the Son of the living Yahweh. It is an exchange of life in the most intimate way and also in a covenant setting. Jesus describes this intimacy in John.14:20 as “you in me and I in you as I am in my Father. In other words; you Jesus and our Father in heaven become “Eshad” or “one”. At that point you are the truth and the truth is you. THE BABEL OF LIES will take you step by step in unveiling the lies that have influenced the church history so that you can make a conscious choice of becoming the truth in Him who is the truth.
