 A lost world, abandoned for over a thousand years, all but forgotten, except to the young Clansman who wants to explore the mystery at the heart of his own Clan territory.

A boiling nebula full of fire and ice stops all travel through it, at it's heart lies a forgotten and lost world full of potential allies in an oncoming war.

For war is coming, sure as the suns rise and the moons make their orbits. The Clans will take sides and everything will change for the young Lord as he tries to weave politics and military tactics within a loose alliance ruled by a Half-Mad Emperor, known as the Confederacy.

Young Ryo Camelin, soon to be Lord of Clan Camelin, once his ageing father finally dies, does not want to be stuck ruling the Clan from the Central Tower of his Clan World. He wants to command the battlecruiser that has been his Clan's for more than four hundred cycles, and he has an urge to explore. A violent gas nebula in the heart of his own territory has been off limits for more than a thousand cycles. Deep within it lies a world long thought destroyed, a world surrounded by legend and wrapped in lies and betrayal. Clan World Desinlo. Once the heart of the Confederacy, now banished and abandoned.

There are too many questions that need answers, and too many answers that beg more questions, young Lord Camelin must seek out the truth for himself and his children and uncover a mystery that concerns the entire survival of The Center Worlds.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
This textbook is endorsed by OCR and supports the specification for A-Level Classical Civilisation (first teaching September 2017). It covers Components 31 and 34 from the 'Beliefs and Ideas' Component Group:

Greek Religion by Athina Mitropoulos and Julietta Steinhauer
Democracy and the Athenians by Tim Morrison and James Renshaw

Why was worshipping the gods so important to ancient Greek life? To what extent did Greeks question religious belief? How and why did the Athenians invent democracy? How does Athenian democracy compare with democracy today?

Drawing on modern scholarship and using a wide variety of illustrations, this book guides A-Level students to a greater understanding of these issues. It explores the fundamental features of Greek religion, as well as its major centres such as Delphi and Olympia. It then moves on to analyse the development and workings of Athenian democracy, as well as reflecting on ancient critiques of it, both celebratory and critical.

The ideal preparation for the final examinations, all content is presented by experts and experienced teachers in a clear and accessible narrative. Ancient literary and visual sources are described and analysed, with supporting images. Helpful student features include study questions, quotations from contemporary scholars, further reading, and boxes focusing in on key people, events and terms. Practice questions and exam guidance prepare students for assessment.
