As the bloody French Revolution rages in Paris, the nuns dig it up and scatter its pieces across the globe because, when united, the set contains a secret power that could topple civilizations. To keep the set from falling into the wrong hands, two novices, Valentine and Mireille, embark on an adventure that begins in the streets of Paris and leads to Russia, Egypt, Corsica, and into the heart of the Algerian Sahara. Two hundred years later, while on assignment in Algeria, computer expert Catherine Velis finds herself drawn unwillingly into the deadly “Game” still swirling around the legendary chess set—a game that will require her to risk her life and match wits with diabolical forces. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Katherine Neville including rare images from her life and travels.

Despite the diversity of theories of human psychology, the majority shares a view of the personality as a collection of traits, ways of thinking and acting, that allow the observer to define, recognize, and understand people and their motivations. The Eight Crystal Alliances takes a more inclusive, holistic approach toward a personality typology that incorporates the physical body, the thoughts, the emotions, and the soul. The book is based on the study and application of eight magnetic groups of “geometric alliances,” eight types of human personality classified along energetic principles linking human nature with “mineral nature.” These types, according to the authors, range from Cubic (rational and organized) to Rhombic (sympathetic, empathetic, and serving others) to Buddhic (here-now, spontaneous, creative, non-conventional, freedom-loving, rebellious, but level-headed). Uncovering the hidden relationship between the human and mineral kingdoms, the book addresses the deep vibrational energies contained within stones that can influence our etheric bodies and, consequently, the other bodies we are made of—mental, emotional, and physical. With detailed lists of stone qualities and case histories, the book shows readers how to use the power of these everyday objects in their personal lives and careers as part of their journey of spirit.

"The recordings made by Marc-Andre Hamelin in recent years have cast new light on an extraordinary group of composers - Alkan, Busoni, Feinberg, Godowsky, Medtner, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, and Sorabji - whose works heralded a Golden Age of virtuosic writing for the piano." "The Eight, as author Robert Rimm has termed these composer-pianists, have much in common, traits shared in our own age with Marc-Andre Hamelin, their foremost interpreter. For all their evident differences of age, nationality, and philosophy, they each created music of unprecedented ingenuity - often complex and of immense scale - that stretched the limits of the piano's capabilities. And all were genuine virtuosos with the technical resources to play these demanding works in public." "The volume includes rare photographs and concludes with an extensive bibliography, listings of the complete solo piano works of The Eight, and discographies of their solo piano recordings. In exploring the art of those who knew their instrument both as composers and as pianists, this book serves, in the words of pianist Stephen Hough, "both as a fascinating, exhaustive study of the riches of the past and as a stimulating inspiration for the future.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
