Half-dead witch Geneviève Crowe makes her living beheading the dead—and spends her free time trying not to get too attached to her business partner, Eli Stonecroft, a faery prince in self-imposed exile in New Orleans. After a faery bargain gone wrong, a walking-dead relative and a deadly but well-paying job make juggling the holidays, romance, and work a lot more complicated than anyone needs. With a killer at her throat and a blood martini in her hand, Geneviève accepts what seems like a straight-forward faery bargain.
Women who opt not to be mothers are frequently warned that they will regret their decision later in life, yet we rarely talk about the possibility that the opposite might also be true - that women who have children might regret it. Drawing on years of research interviewing women from a variety of socioeconomic, educational, and professional backgrounds, sociologist Orna Donath treats regret as a feminist issue: as regret marks the road not taken, we need to consider whether alternative paths for women currently are blocked off.

Philosophy is the foundation of all of societies' thoughts, and notions of the famous thinkers percolate out to the masses. Most of philosophy has been detrimental to society because it is not thought through. War is stupid, regardless of how many great thinkers think it good. Poverty is a stupid scourge to our society, regardless of it being regarded as a necessary evil. This is a work of philosophy, but unlike historical philosophies, it does not give excuses for society as it is now, but gives plain and serious vision to how it can be.
Ephesians 4:10-13 tells us that as Jesus ascended to heaven, He gave various gifts to mankind for the perfecting and full equipping of the body of Christ.

It is written in a way that can be easily understood casually, or for in-depth study, as there are scriptural references that may be followed up on. It is illumination and enlightenment for anyone who has that desire. All glory be to God.

A degenerating macula is not a good thing. I didn’t know much about the disease then, but now I feel that I am almost an expert.
