The Last Moon Boat


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Last Moonboat A small village in a valley reluctantly welcomes a solitary man who wishes to spread love and happiness among the local children; with rather unexpected results. And what about dabbling with the Great Magic in your attic? It can be done obviously...but....There again we have all been students trying to make a little extra money for minimum work haven't we? It's lucky we did not end up in this 'highly des. Res ' perhaps! And the power of the Moon – still working her timeless power it seems in this modern tale.....while other ancient forces are at work in Russia after a trip to the ballet no less. While in a cultural mood – maybe a trip to a Cathedral would prove less than boring. And remember not to waste time – the hero of this next tale was an expert on that topic; for a while at least. And, finally, back to the Mother Moon's influence for the book's title story. More memories for you, more mysteries to intrigue you!

One day, the Abbot who is the head of the Brothers gives him some instructions and a little money. The man is then sent on a journey which leads him to Brazil There he takes a river boat up the Amazon to the city of Manaus where he obtains supplies, and continues by canoe, up the river. One horrible night, he becomes sick and spits his teeth out, one by one. However, over the next month, he grows new, meat tearing teeth as he also grows even stronger, along with fur all over his face. These changes force him to continue his trip at night. As per the directions the Abbot gave him, he paddles up the Amazon until he finds a waterfall. There he climbs the waterfall cliff until he meets an individual who looks like him. The meeting triggers memories and the man suddenly realizes that he's Vekor, the King of the Voren. The Voren are a wolf like group of people living in a hidden part of the Amazon basin. The Voren don't believe that the newcomer is actually Vekor and he must fight the strongest of the Voren warriors in a death match. Vekor wins and becomes the King of the Voren. Vekor finds himself also mated with Avera. From Avera, he learns that he must prove that he's truly Vekor. In order to do this he must engage in a series of tests, which if he fails any of them, will result in his death. If he passes the testing, he'll then lead the Voren back through the Gate of Exile and away from their jungle home of more than a thousand years. Unfortunately, Vekor has no idea where to find the gate of exile. As he passes each test, the objects that he takes give him information about who he really is and what he must do. As he lives among the Voren, Vekor participates in the hunts that the males conduct to feed the village and also in the Moon Dances that are a vital ceremonial part of the Voren life. He is better than any of the males at the warrior tasks and also better than any of the males at the ritual Moon Dances. He learns that a group of people called Avarra exiled the Voren, many years before, and he must lead the Voren back to face the Avarra, who are a tall, handsome, nearly hairless people with a hidden secret that only the Avarra Science Alklar and Vekor know. The Voren have a temple in the jungle and the temple contains a time line. The time line ends after the next Moon Dance and the Voren must follow Vekor back through the Gate of Exile, their religion demands it. Vekor must lead the Voren warriors against the science of the Avarra and then he and his wolf men will breed with the Avarra!

The Last Moon


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

On May 8, 1902, Mt. Pelée on the West Indies island of Martinique near the seaport town of St. Pierre erupted in a cloud of gas and fire in one of the most awesome and destructive pyrotechnic displays ever offered by nature. Four minutes later, thirty thousand citizens lay dead or dying, and the town engulfed in flames. Mother Nature was not entirely to blame for this disaster. In truth, the real culprits were the rather more deplorable traits found in Human Nature. If not for the dishonesty and corruption of officials who placed politics, greed, and racial intolerance above the welfare of the people, this devastating catastrophe did not have to happen. The Last Moon remains true to historical facts and personal testimonies. The main characters presented in this novel are either composites of real individuals who lived in Martinique prior to the eruption or actual people who influenced the turn of events. Also historically genuine are the Creole language, clothing, mix of races, diversified lifestyles, corrupt politics, racial discrimination, whorehouses, blackmagic, clergy, plantations, waterfront, plagues, floods, earthquakes, tidal-waves, lava and mud flows, volcanic eruptions, foreign ships, deadly snakes, mutant insects, lush topography, and the before-and-after sequence of the 1902 tragedy. Dramatically captured in this exotic saga are acts of friendship, forbidden love, lust, pride, gluttony, cruelty, corruption, mass murder, bravery, sacrifice, survival, faith, and hope. Book Review Very highly recommended for community library historical fiction collections. A riveting read from first page to last, "The Last Moon" is a novel set against the 1902 eruption of Mount Pelee on the West Indies island of Martinique that resulted in the death of some thirty thousand people and the seaport town of St. Pierre consumed by fire. An impressive historical novel, author DeAnn Lubell has paid careful attention to detail and accuracy with respect to historical facts including the Creole language spoken there, the culture, lifestyles, geography, and the geological phenomena that occur with respect to the eruption of a volcano. Against this superbly presented background is an engaging story of lust, greed, corruption, and murder, as well as friendship, love, sacrifice, faith, hope -- and survival. Deftly written from beginning to end, and available in both a hardcover and a softcover edition, "The Last Moon" is very highly recommended for community library historical fiction collections.

The Last Boat is the second novel by author John Hanley, and the follow up to Against the Tide The book opens in the middle of the greatest naval disaster in British history when the Luftwaffe bombs and sinks the hastily converted Cunard liner, HMT Lancastria. In the ten minutes of bombing and strafing, over 5,000 troops and civilians are blown apart by the high explosive bombs. These losses represent more than one third of all members of the British Expeditionary Force killed in the nine months of war so far. The news is so shocking that Churchill suppresses it and the report into the loss will remain sealed until 2040. But this is only a beginning for Jack, Saul, Miko and Lt Commander Brewster who survive the attack and must fight their way back to Jersey through the German advance. During this journey they encounter a cargo so important that only Miko, the refugee physicist, really understands what could happen should the Germans intercept it. The Last Boat will appeal to readers of historical fiction who appreciate the complexities and uncertainties facing young adults as their world is forever shattered by war.

In 1970, during the war in Viet Nam, Marchant became one of the first Marine officers ever to be honorably discharged as a conscientious objector. In the poems contained in Full Moon Boat, Marchant explores the concept of violence: What are its origins and consequences? What actions of the heart and mind resist it?

The Last Stand Of The Tin Can Sailors


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

“This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can.” With these words, Lieutenant Commander Robert W. Copeland addressed the crew of the destroyer escort USS Samuel B. Roberts on the morning of October 25, 1944, off the Philippine Island of Samar. On the horizon loomed the mightiest ships of the Japanese navy, a massive fleet that represented the last hope of a staggering empire. All that stood between it and Douglas MacArthur’ s vulnerable invasion force were the Roberts and the other small ships of a tiny American flotilla poised to charge into history. In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers, James D. Hornfischer paints an unprecedented portrait of the Battle of Samar, a naval engagement unlike any other in U.S. history—and captures with unforgettable intensity the men, the strategies, and the sacrifices that turned certain defeat into a legendary victory. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James D. Hornfischer's Neptune's Inferno. Praise for The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors “One of the finest WWII naval action narratives in recent years, this book follows in the footsteps of Flags of Our Fathers. . . . Exalting American sailors and pilots as they richly deserve. . . . Reads like a very good action novel.”—Publishers Weekly “Reads as fresh as tomorrow's headlines. . . . Hornfischer's captivating narrative uses previously classified documents to reconstruct the epic battle and eyewitness accounts to bring the officers and sailors to life.”—Texas Monthly “Hornfischer is a powerful stylist whose explanations are clear as well as memorable. . . . A dire survival-at-sea saga.”—Denver Post “In The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors, James Hornfischer drops you right into the middle of this raging battle, with 5-inch guns blazing, torpedoes detonating and Navy fliers dive-bombing. . . . The overall story of the battle is one of American guts, glory and heroic sacrifice.”—Omaha World Herald
