Have no fear! Help is...nowhere near. Terror reigns here, casting a gloom upon the once bright metropolitan of Elko, Nevada. Hundreds are missing, the city's superheroes are MIA, and it's all thanks to the "Listeners", a millennia-old faction bent on world reconstruction. They are everywhere, they are many, and they are nigh unstoppable. But there just may be someone who can stop them against all odds - if he dares to fight.   To the citizens of Elko, Waterman is the water-wielding superhero who disappeared after nearly purging the city of the diabolical Listeners. To his two surviving friends, he is Eric Atl, once a comrade and hero, now a man derelict by inconsolable grief and the Listeners' looming threat: We will kill everyone you love.  So, it is up to his friends to liberate Eric from his misery and convince him to wrestle with the darkness again. Only then can a long-lost Aztec relic be uncovered and the Listeners silenced. Only then can loved ones be avenged and the good guy win. Only then can Water return. 1. Language: English.

Where blessings and curses collide, even the moon holds secrets of its own.... Seventeen-year-old Lorileen Masters is cursed. To undo the damage, she must travel all the way to the vindictive witch Rhiannyn's lair and bargain for a reversal, even as demon shades stalk her. That is, until she's rescued by a highwayman hunter on a golden horse. Archer Cross seems to possess a remarkable - if not mysterious - shielding effect against Lori's shades, so much that she insists he chaperone her to the witch's woods. Neither expected the love of a lifetime; yet, that is exactly what Lori and Archer find in each other. But if Lori succeeds in reversing her curse, then she'll retain no memory since its casting - including every moment with Archer. Will she abandon her quest to vanquish the darkness that haunts her, or can the heart's true love prevail even apart from the mind's memory? Author C.K. Brooke delivers an exciting mini-tale of valor and romance, fraught with humor and magic. Fans of romantic fantasy won't want to miss out on her latest adventure and first novella for teens. 1.

How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don''t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions. Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today''s so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms.
