Free sample

It had been a thousand years since Yoden was at war with his once young apprentice, Arkham. Magic, it seemed for the poor sorcerer, had more power in his realm than he had anticipated. Yoden had not foreseen the creation of Dark Magic. Being the first of his kind, a sage of magic, how could he? From what part of the universe did he arise, it is a mystery: an unfamiliar piece in the puzzle called life. His life’s goal, however, was unmistakable. Companionship is craved in the enormity of the cosmos, companionship in the form of a new apprentice.

Deo Tinsley, a child from earth has been chosen by Yoden’s source of power, his precious hat. This holds the key to the earth’s salvation. Here, on our planet, we find ourselves in the middle of a secret war that has been going on before “Dinosaurs” overtook the planet. His story has been unheard of, his legacy, empty. But now Sorcerer Yoden must act and protect our world from those who dare take it from us. Yoden must find his next apprentice.

Deo Tinsley is now a teenager boldly heading off to the next chapter in his life, college. But behold, fate has chosen him as the next important sorcerer to save mankind from the tyranny of Arkham. Arkham, Yoden’s first apprentice, now nemesis, has been informed of the recent prodigy and will stop at nothing to obtain his source of power: for Deo wields Yoden’s prized possession, his hat. Arkham, unable to enter Earth after his banishment, sends his own apprentice, Nox, to fulfill his dark deed. But Nox has plans of his own. Faced with certain deadly encounters Deo is not alone on his quest. With the help of Sorcerer Goobert and his animal guardian Milo, Deo will have the power to choose his own fate, find the truth to his own destiny and in turn uncover facts about his past.

The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together—and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past—even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

A GAME OF THRONES
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE
 
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Unparalleled in scope and execution, A Game of Thrones is one of those rare reading experiences that catch you up from the opening pages, won’t let you go until the end, and leave you yearning for more.
A devastating crisis has the Jehovah's Witness religion facing extinction.

Chances are that you have never met a real “Jehovah’s Witness.” While those at your door may claim to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, their own publications plainly teach otherwise. So, who are the real Jehovah’s Witnesses?

The Watchtower Society teaches that they are members of the 144,000 who will be the only ones going to heaven. Membership in this group began with the early apostles. Over the centuries others have been added but the Watchtower declared that the number was completed in 1935. Anyone who claims to be one of Jehovah’s’ Witnesses has to be one of the 144,000 and must be very old now. However, the Watchtower Society teaches that these are the only ones who hear from God and are responsible for Watchtower teaching and leadership.

Because these people are dying, the Watchtower is facing a credibility crisis. So, the Watchtower is quietly manipulating these death figures to keep the Watchtower organization alive! And now, just last year, Watchtower literature quietly began to try to wiggle out of the 1935 closing date for the 144,000. But this only adds further opportunity for you to show the “JW” who comes to your door that he cannot trust the Watchtower with his precious eternal life.

The Watchtower representative at your door believes he will remain on “Paradise Earth” after the coming Armageddon, since only the original 144,000 have any hope of going to heaven. In fact, they are the only ones allowed to take communion. He does not believe he can understand Bible truths without the Watchtower. He is dependent on a publication that, one day soon, will be left without writers to reveal God’s truths. Who are those writers? Those who remain of the original 144,000 and they are dying!

Oddly enough, their founder, Charles Taze Russell, never taught the doctrine of the 144,000. In this book, you will learn the true history of this false Watchtower doctrine. You will be surprised to discover that this doctrine is not just a Bible issue. It is also a historical issue and a numbers game that the Watchtower Society has had to manipulate throughout the years to keep that organization alive!

With the information and witnessing strategies in this book, you will be able to plant seeds of doubt and undermine the authority of the Watchtower. The Watchtower knows it is essential that this cornerstone doctrine remain alive if it is going to continue to exist as the spiritual leader for its followers. Time is the enemy of this teaching and they know it.
