Solstice from the Author: P. J. Hoover. Piper's world is dying. Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles which threaten to destroy the Earth. Amid this Global Heating Crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom. Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper's life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth—her very identity.... An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Celebrate The Solstice from the Author: Richard Heinberg. This book is an accessible, engaging tool to help people enrich their lives through the observance of ancient, astronomically determined Earth festivals. It assists us to recover an experience that had deep meaning for the ancients and that is now increasingly relevant to a world facing environmental challenges. Seasonal festivals are not meant to be cultural relics. They are joyous, fun, mischievous, profound, life-affirming events that connect us deeply with the Earth, the heavens, and the wellspring of being within us. This book encourages us to undertake full-bodied, ecstatic seasonal renewal by providing information on the history and meaning of the solstices with practical suggestions on how to celebrate them now.

Solstice from the Author: Joyce Carol Oates. Monica Jensen surprises everyone who knows her - including her husband - when she accepts an offer to teach at a boys' school in Pennsylvania. As she moves into her new rambling house, Sheila Trask arrives, a wild-looking figure in jodhpurs, and invites herself in. Sheila, a painter, has long baffled the neighbours with her strange habits and eccentric demeanour. Monica can't decide if she likes the woman, if she wishes her gone or if she feels a tug of powerful attraction. Week by week, as Monica settles into the community and her teaching role, Sheila's exhausting attentions gradually become a source of energising insight: into Monica's own golden girl past, and into the dark Neitzschean insolence of Sheila's artistic vision. As the solstice approaches and the evenings lengthen, together the women make a journey of intense friendship and sometimes frightening consequences.

More than his own will to survive, it's his fellow Stonewylders who must save him. But will they, when Magus has done so much to undermine Yul and turn the people against him? Yet there are cracks in Magus' following. When he confesses a secret that shocks the community, the Stonewylde folk begin to understand his true nature. Magus' spiral into obsession and darkness continues, his kindness and charm now vanished. The cruelty that lies beneath is becoming clear ... as is the deadly web of deceit and betrayal in which Yul and Sylvie are trapped.

As the darkness draws in around them, the wise woman on the hill makes a chilling prophecy. There is no escape and no compromise when death comes knocking: five will die at Stonewylde. The only question is who ...
