For six months, Madeline Granger has been overwhelmed by an almost magnetic pull that has kept her on the road, traveling all over the Midwest and erotically dreaming of two men...her lion kings. When she wakes up in Kansas, just outside the perimeter of a traveling carnival, it miraculously feels like coming home. But after she meets the two men who shouldn't exist outside her own mind, it's hard for her to reconcile that her dream lovers are two very real and sexy men, not imaginary. All she knows for certain is she wants them both. Adam Michael's and his brother Cage, both lion-shifters, not only run Pantheros and Co. Carnival, they are the stars. Making a home for his crew of misfits and outcasts was Adam's dream. Cage was his most desperate rescue, and after a profound loss, Adam worries that Cage's grief will drive him toward a brutality he can't come back from. The last thing either lion-shifter expected was Madeline Granger. She might be the answer to Adam's prayers, in more ways than one, if he can get Cage to look past his pain. But, can Adam and Cage see Madeline as more than a substitute Clary? And can Madeline rescue two Kings drowning in their own sorrow? Maddie might want The Lion Kings to rule her body, but is she strong enough to rule their hearts. This audiobook was previously published as a five part serial novel.

Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure. Its main character is God, its conflict is sin, and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story. As the conflict of sin enters the world in Genesis 3, so is it finally and definitively resolved in Revelation 20. Then, in Revelation 21 and 22 our linear narrative bends back around on itself and we have a new beginning: We are back in the Garden of Eden—the New Jerusalem—where there is “no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” In the New Jerusalem “God’s dwelling place is among people, and he will dwell with them.” In the New Jerusalem God will walk with his people in the cool of the day, just as he did with Adam and Eve at the start in the Garden of Eden. In Revelation 21-22 we come full circle. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as together we bring down the curtain on the story of fallen humanity and celebrate a new beginning, redeemed by God! 1. Language: English.

Please note: This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book.Striking and poignant, this searing exposé unravels the untold stories behind the Soviet nuclear disaster of 1986. Midnight in Chernobyl captures the truth below the molten core which irradiated the tangled web of bureaucracy determined to erase it and ended an era.What does this ZIP Reads Summary include?Synopsis of the original bookKey takeaways from each chapterKey players involved in the meltdown and cover-upA detailed timeline of events leading up to the disaster and following itEditorial reviewBackground on Adam HigginbothamAbout the original book:It’s the flip side of the 1986 Chernobyl saga told with an objective candor lacking in historical accounts corroded by the clandestine. A nauseating tale of pain and denial, it tumbles down to the core and back again, more gruesome than any dystopian fairy tale whispered under blanket forts before torchlight shadow monsters. The nuclear nightmare nearly destroyed the world as we know it with a swift and silent drift of radionuclides, and nothing but controversy to combat its advance. The indiscriminate terror was barely averted despite the infuriating bureaucracy that plagued the Party responsible. It’s a miracle we survived.Disclaimer: This audiobook is intended as a companion to, not a replacement for, Midnight in Chernobyl.

From a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, a ferociously intimate story of a family facing the ultimate question: How far will we go to save the people we love the most? When Margaret's fiancé, John, is hospitalized for depression in 1960s London, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans despite what she now knows of his condition, or back away from the suffering it may bring her. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith. At the heart of it is their eldest son, Michael, a brilliant, anxious music fanatic who makes sense of the world through parody. Over the span of decades, his younger siblings - the savvy and responsible Celia and the ambitious and tightly controlled Alec - struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existence. Told in alternating points of view by all five members of the family, this searing, gut-wrenching, yet frequently hilarious novel brings alive with remarkable depth and poignancy the love of a mother for her children, the often inescapable devotion siblings feel toward one another, and the legacy of a father's pain in the life of a family. With his striking emotional precision and lively, inventive language, Adam Haslett has given us something rare: a novel with the power to change how we see the most important people in our lives. 1.

Eve’s Memoirs, a work of her-storical fiction, offers Eve’s secret diary written in the 100th year of the Dawn. Eve entrusts her witty words of wisdom, her deepest desires and innermost thoughts, to her daughters and sons, regarding the pleasures and pains of being a woman on planet Earth. Eve’s Memoirs will cradle you, rock you, and profoundly nurture you with a mystical sense of God’s love for you, as well as help you experience the Garden and find a garden of your own.Note from the author:Sometime, back in my early 30s, when I was buried deep in marriage and having children, I realized - face it - being a woman is different than being a man, especially when it comes to childbearing. I reflected on the fact that I could read about history, but not often...herstory.It was here I met Eve, yes, the Eve of Genesis, the Eve of the Garden. Eve came alive to me from the Garden where there were no religious walls, no racial separations, no caste systems, no language barriers, no pain in childbirth - just Eve with her perfect Adam and God in the Garden, and the talking animals, of course!This encounter with Eve changed my life and view as a woman forever.As Eve spoke to me of the Garden - her life in the Garden and her life outside the Garden - the words were like a melody of a quiet revolution that transformed my life.I hope you find wisdom from Eve’s Memoirs to live a happier life in the Garden, outside the Garden, or in your own garden. I believe the words of Eve are universal, sharing a commonality that transcends national, religious, and racial borders, to reach any woman who has ever struggled with being a woman and hopefully help a few men understand, too! 1.
