The world of Athera lives in eternal fog, its skies obscured by the malevolent Mistwraith. Only the combined powers of two half-brothers can challenge the Mistwraith's stranglehold: Arithon, Master of Shadow, and Lysaer, Lord of Light. Arithon and Lysaer soon find that they are inescapably bound to a series of events dictated by their own deepest convictions. Yet as the sorcerers of the Fellowship of Seven know well, there is more at stake than one battle with the Mistwraith: between them the half-brothers hold the balance of the world—its harmony and its future—in their hands.

Studio lighting offers portrait photographers unlimited creative control. Mastering its use requires a specific skill set, however. Fortunately, portrait photography legend Tony Corbell is up to the task of showing readers how to harness its full power. He sets a foundation for mastering the use of strobes and continuous lighting sources (LEDs, tungsten lights, and fluorescent sources), creating effective lighting setups (with the aid of detailed, yet simple-to-understand diagrams), metering and adjusting the light, correcting color imbalances, softening harsh shadows, and more. He also introduces readers to the proper use of standard photographic modifiers — softboxes, umbrellas, octoboxes, beauty dishes, and other tools — so that they can sculpt their every portrait subject with incredibly flattering light. This book is filled with over 150 inspiring and instructive images from a true master of the craft. In these pages, readers will learn step-by-step instructions for mastering the many critical concepts one must understand to gain mastery over light. Armed with simple strategies for studio lighting, readers can repeatedly re-create Corbell’s award-winning portrait lighting looks with their own clients.

A collection of essays by ten international experts on J. R. R. Tolkien’s Legendarium, focussed on Light and Shadow. Such leading threads of his literary production are here taken as universal themes to be interpreted in several different senses – ethical, philosophical, psychological, spiritual, historical and biographical – with further insights into their numberless nuances. The Professor’s main works (above all, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion) are explored in their multifacete aspects, in connection with his life’s events and bearing in mind his own opinion on them, through his Letters and his essay On Fairy Stories. Thanks to these sharp and compelling reflections, a wide range of viewpoints on his entire opus emerges, confirming its utmost relevance to the history of Literature, and offering some indeed new intuitions on the spirit of his creations.

She’s determined to break the rules so her sister can get married. However, she doesn’t expect to find a true love of her own. The only problem is he’s a vampire... Aina’s grandmother is old-school fae and pressuring her to get married. But it’s to the wrong guy—the one her sister loves. She travels to Raven’s Landing to meet with the elders to find a loophole. There, she unexpectedly spends an amazing day with a fun and handsome stranger. Nick ditches the royal summit to go incognito and be normal just for a day. He meets a lovely and enchanting fae and doesn’t want their time together to end when she inevitably discovers his identity. Unfortunately, the king’s brother harasses them both and reveals the truth. But nothing can come between their growing relationship: not a jerky prince, outdated magical customs, fire frogs, grandmothers, or the fact that vampires and fae aren’t supposed to be together. However, they didn’t know their love story would lead to war. This is the prequel story to the Court of Crown and Compass series. It’s fantasy romance that’s chock full of mystery, danger, romance, and sizzling kisses.
