Captain Nelson is a little man who cannot boast of being handsome, but who will, in my view, one day astonish the world. So said Sir William Hamilton to his wife Emma, when Captain Nelson first sailed into Naples Bay in 1793. Even that shrewd Ambassador could hardly have guessed how great the ´´little man´´ would become. Superb seaman and strategist, born leader of men, savior of Britain from the menace of invasion by Napoleon, he won glory at the price of disfigurement, mutilation, and death at the moment of his crowning glory at the glorious Battle of Trafalgar. Brave as a lion in battle, his private character was of gentleness and charm that captivated all who knew him; a rare quality in a fighting man. His love for his mistress, the beautiful Emma Hamilton, was as passionate as his devotion to his country, and is an unforgettable part of his heroic story. The part of Horatio Nelson is played by Edmund Pegge and the part of Emma Hamilton is played by Joanna Wake. Other parts are played by Michael Sheard and Robert Rietty. 1. Language: English.

Blood Slave Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows that she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires do not know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know. Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family; the same royal family that started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves. Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding. 1.

**THIS IS A REVISED, ENHANCED AUDIO VERSION OF THIS BOOK (06/16/14)** ´´Clearing Away a Mass of Eschatological Debris´´ —Dr. John Evans, Ph.D. University Professor of Alabama and Author Just as the title implies, this book reveals how you have been deceived on a MASSIVE scale that scripture actually prophesied (Rev 12:9, 20:7-8), we have researched the numerous ´´prophetic understandings´´ being widely taught, and they are wrong. This, seven years later, when I began learning, still astonishes me. That is the mythbusting aspect of the book or 1st argument presented, the 2nd argument is the replacement offered. So, even if you disagree with the replacement, that is only the second argument and you are still freed from the myth! The primary reason this deception is possible is because our priorities have not been in verifying what we think we know from the Word of God, but have been steeped in tradition. It has always been the same - when illumination, light has come to a people, the people scoffed. If our understanding is built upon a foundation of sand (false traditions,) our house will sink. However, if built upon a rock (i.e. because we have a good understanding of the Old & NT) it will stand, and we will grow in the grace and knowledge (2 Pe 3:18) Christ brought, and we will be free (Jo 8:32). People deceived, do not know they are deceived—nevertheless, help has arrived! We should never fear, but be excited to understand in new ways as God’s Word corrects us. If you’re tired of wishy-washy stances, and want to be freed from all the cleverly devised, far-fetched fables being taught as Bible prophecy enslaving the many—you need to hear this important book! If the truth sets us free—then deception is bondage. The redemptive, end time message known as ´´the Mystery of the Gospel” when not distorted, is the greatest theological thriller and love story ever tol... 1. Language: English. Narrator: E.J. Smith.

By the age of 60, most of us will have been sleeping for a total of roughly 20 years. That’s how we spend about a third of our lives. Yet, few of us are aware of the oddities which tend to trespass through our slumbers - or of the strange somnambulism that can erupt when we’ve drifted into restful oblivion. This audiobook, the second in the series, delves deep into the darker corners of the realm we call sleep, when our brains are active but we have no control and strange things happen. It goes further exploring real-life cases which entertain, sometimes frighten, astonish, and often baffle parasomnia and slow-wave sleep experts. Like the mysterious case of a renowned French detective who arrested himself for murder and the case of the bank robber who shot two people dead and walked free, while a man practiced in the art of hypnotism, who was miles from the scene of the crime, was convicted. A real-life nightmare of auto-suggestion and hypnosis. These and other less extreme cases, like the mystery behind Nuff the guinea-pig´s disappearance from his cage, are compelling insights into what goes on in our heads while we sleep. 1.

Bringing to life the world of the Old and New Testaments, the acclaimed creator of the best-selling Don’t Know Much About® series transforms dry, difficult reading into colorful and realistic accounts. Relying on new research and improved translations, Kenneth C. Davis uncovers some amazing questions and contradictions about what the Bible really says: Jericho’s walls may have tumbled down because the city lies on a fault line. Moses never parted the Red Sea. There was a Jesus, but he wasn’t born on Christmas and he probably wasn’t an only child. Don’t Know Much About® the Bible entertains and astonishes, but more important, provides a much better understanding of the world’s most-owned but least-understood anthology, with much more fun along the way. 1.
