Description :


The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil -- and the struggle for wealth power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the twentieth century as of the oil industry itself. The canvas of this history is enormous -- from the drilling of the first well in Pennsylvania through two great world wars to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and Operation Desert Storm. The cast extends from wildcatters and rogues to oil tycoons, and from Winston Churchill and Ibn Saud to George Bush and Saddam Hussein. The definitive work on the subject of oil and a major contribution to understanding our century, The Prize is a book of extraordinary breadth, riveting excitement -- and great importance.

Description :


When a friendly competition leads to the death of a beloved horse and incurs the wrath of the Horse Goddess, the kingdoms of the island of Tir Isarnagiri are doomed to suffer. As the goddess' curse chases them down the years, four friends destined for kingship-Conal, Emer, Darag, and Ferdia-are forced into conflict as their countries build towards war. Matters are complicated when Emer and Conal fall in love, and dream of escaping together from the machinations of their respective families. But Conal and Ferdia are rivals for the High Kingship of the island, and Conal cannot simply leave. The contest between them will lead to a visionary quest on a mountain sacred to the gods-and terrifying to men. Yet Emer faces an even greater struggle. For when war finally comes, Emer has two choices: perform her duty to the homeland to which she owes everything, or protect the one she loves and be branded a traitor forever. The path she takes will become the stuff of legend, and forever alter the destiny of Tir Isarnagiri. Set in the world of Jo Walton's previous novels, The King's Peace and The King's Name, this book takes us to a shining era of dark powers, legendary heroes and passionate loves-all of them ruled by the hand of Fate.

Sydney Schuster was an easy target growing up; the bullies beat him up every day. Now, he's a millionaire with bullies for sons. He was willing to accept that fate (albeit with bitterness), but an opportunity arises. Syd's former tormentor, now a priest, hits him up for the money to save his school. Sydney hits back with an offer the priest could not refuse. With Syd's financial backing, Father John will run a new boarding school for ten inner-city teenagers. The kids, however, aren't just there to study. They?re the guinea pigs in a social experiment. Their mission: to break the bully/victim cycle, without breaking a few simple rules. If they succeed, they win five million dollars?half a million per student. But if even one rule is broken, no one gets a cent. By the end of the school year, few rules remain intact. The question is, how much will the judges find out? And how much will they tolerate?

Written by USA Today Bestselling Author K.L. Middleton Adam Knight wasn't just my first kiss. He was the cruel, heartless jerk who lived to torment me after I bruised his ego in front of his friends. He hated me for it and made my high school years intolerable. But... I survived and we eventually went our separate ways. Until I bought a stupid raffle ticket. I’m not going to lie – I was a dick to Chloe Maverick and she has every right not to forgive me. But I’m no longer the immature prick I used to be. I’m a man now and she’s… she’s all woman. She might not be able to let the past go But... I refuse to let that stop us from having a future. When Chloe Maverick transfers to Diamond Lake University, she is talked into attending a fundraiser and finds herself winning the main raffle. The prize? An all inclusive weekend vacation with a local web celebrity - an arrogant, bullheaded jerk she knew in high school. Unfortunately, she can't get out of the date and Adam hasn't changed much, except for maybe getting irritatingly more handsome. After getting injured in the Daytona 500, Adam Knight thought he'd never experience the kind of rush he'd lived for on the track. That is until he started chasing after ghosts. Now he finds himself face-to-face with the girl who shamed him in high school. She's still as feisty, untouchable, and beautiful as ever. She's also his date for an entire weekend at the resort of his choice - a luxurious hotel in California... that's said to be haunted. Unfortunately, Chloe can't seem to let go of the past, but Adam is determined to win her over, catch himself a ghost, and lay their demons to rest.
