Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.
Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.
Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.
From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.
Trauma is daunting. PTSD is daunting. Understanding PTSD is not daunting, or at least it doesn't have to be. In flipping through the pages of this book, you will find that it is not intimidating.
”The What and How of PTSD" strives to answer questions that arise when one faces this mysterious disorder, summarizing scientific research and clinically helpful theories using clear language, metaphors and pictures. It breaks down what happens in the brain after trauma. Those who battle PTSD can see how their minds got stuck in the past like a record that keeps skipping, and at the same time, how they can break the cycle and move on.
A young hero sets off on a journey of revenge to avenge the only family he has ever known; an adopted group of patriarchal, militant giants. Revenge is thrust aside when the hero's quest turns into a journey of self-discovery; unlocking his mysterious mental powers, and leading him into a strange life of adventure, with even stranger adventuring partners. A mysterious priestess who can heal others, but spends the mornings helpless in the sun, absorbing light like a plant; a muscular Amazon warrior with gills in her neck that she keeps hidden from the world; a bungling thief that is so lucky he can even cheat death itself; and a mage that is so greedy, he will go to any lengths to increase his wealth and power.
The young hero realizes he may be on the same path as a previous hero of a long-lost age when he discovers an intelligent weapon; a sword fashioned by an unknown god and made from an alien alloy, known only as living steel. The discovery of this strange and cursed artifact seems to coincide with a rising army of humanoid creatures and the dalliance of gods with mortals. The young hero finally ends up in a personal conflict with the mages guild that stubbornly refuses to grant audience or release information. A new age is dawning and powers that struggled ages ago will once again take up the gauntlet of conquest.
