Without Light or Guide
Without Light or Guide - Teresa Frohock

Picking up shortly after In Midnight’s Silence, Diago, a half angel and half diamon must prove his allegiance to the Nefilim, a group of angels that monitor demons.  With trouble brewing in both the supernatural realm and the mortal realm with the eve of the Spanish Civil War, Diago finds himself once again in the middle of a lot of trouble.  Everyone the Diago knows in Barcelona is being murdered; Diago, his partner Miquel and other Nefilim begin to investigate.  The issues that arise affect both the natural and supernatural realm and directly involve Diago and his son, Rafael.  Diago must figure out what is going on and how to stop it.

 

This book involved a lot more danger, intrigue and characterization.  The demons were more prolific in this book and the growing threat that not everyone is who they seem.  Diago and Miquel’s relationship grew even more for me, especially with the involvement of Rafael.  There was some truly touching moments as Rafael had figured out the relationship between the two.  The crime scenes and mystery built into this installment definitely amped up the excitement and led to more heart-pounding scenes as Diago tried to outsmart the daimons.  I’ll be looking forward to more Nefilim adventures.

 

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

Living in the Light: A Guide to Personal and Planetary Transformation
Living In The Light: A Guide To Personal And Planetary Transformation - Shakti Gawain,Laurel King I love Shakti Gawain's writing and many of her other books are on my favorite book list. But this particular book missed the boat on so many levels. My copy was published in 1986, and I know she has made some huge leaps and bounds since then, which is reflected in her later publications. This book is the WORST of the "Science of Mind" movement. It includes such gems as: People get cancer because they are emotionally unbalanced; the idea that women who have been raped have "asked for it" on a psychic level; and you can tell how "sick and unbalanced" someone is by the shape of their body (overweight = unresolved issues). It's pompous, high-handed, extremely privileged and ignorant. So why do I give it three stars? Because as far as writing about intuition, I think she is right on the money. She offers great ways to connect with that sacred source and exercises to deepen it. If this is the only book you've read by Shakti Gawain, please don't give up on her.

Peak Landscape and Light: A Photographer's Guide to the Peak District - Karen Frenkel In the best possible light

This book is packed with brilliant, almost perfect, images of the beautiful Peak District. It is obvious that Karen Frenkel has put a huge amount of effort into capturing all of the scenes, which include landscapes, flowers and rocks amongst many other subjects, in literally the best light possible. There must been a lot of planning and preparation and thought before she finally clicked the shutter on each exposure.

The results are stunning.

Descriptions of each subject accompany every photograph, and she has added a few notes about her approach and the equipment that she used at the end of the book.

Whether you are familiar with the Peak District or living on the other side of the planet, you cannot fail to be inspired by the beauty that Karen has managed to capture through her lens.
