THERON – Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly.
He's the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld. From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn't exist in real life–silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something.
She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron's duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn't strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body. As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
This is Gandhi's autobiography, first published in 1929. I'm fascinated by the mixed reviews, and how different people's opinions of his book are. Some find it inspiring, and some find it frustrating and overly pedantic. It's on sale digitally for 99c.
This is Gandhi's autobiography covering his life from early childhood to approximately 1921.
In Gandhi's own words: “I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments . . . I should certainly like to narrate my experiments in the spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I posses for working in the political field . . . If I had only to discuss academic principles. I should clearly not attempt an autobiography. But my purpose being to give an account of various practical applications of these principles, I have given the chapters I propose to write the title of The Story of My Experiments with Truth. These will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth.“
The DaVinci Code is free digitally on most platforms. I remember when I read it, I was completely absorbed into the puzzle of it, and went on to read all of Brown's other books in one big glom. I do not recommend you do the same.
