Riffem wasn´t a great wizard, at least not by the standards of the game. He couldn´t cast big fireballs or powerful lighting bolts to devastate his enemies. He wasn´t getting very far in his wizarding career and doubted he ever would. Then a chance encounter with a dragon at the local inn changed everything. Now Riffem is on a quest to find seven beautiful women for his new dragon lord, Thraxrax. Even with the help of Yth, an intensely cerebral mind melter, and the wanton dragonkin warrior Klaezarsta, he finds himself way out of his depth. Lacking sheer power, he´ll have to rely on his wits and luck to succeed. If he does, a life of luxury awaits him. If he fails, his new lord will turn him into a deep fried wizard kabob. An exotically beautiful centaur woman, a gregarious goo girl, a nefarious succubus, and a highly temperamental female fire elemental that just wants a hug wait within this story.

Mainstream health science has let you down. Weight loss is not the key to health, diet and exercise are not effective weight-loss strategies, and fatness is not a death sentence. You´ve heard it before: There´s a global health crisis, and unless we make some changes, we´re in trouble. That much is true - but the epidemic is not obesity. The real crisis lies in the toxic stigma placed on certain bodies and the impact of living with inequality - not the numbers on a scale. In a mad dash to shrink our bodies, many of us get so caught up in searching for the perfect diet, exercise program, or surgical technique that we lose sight of our original goal: improved health and well-being. Popular methods for weight loss don´t get us there and lead many people to feel like failures when they can´t match unattainable body standards. It´s time for a cease-fire in the war against obesity. Dr. Linda Bacon and Dr. Lucy Aphramor´s Body Respect debunks common myths about weight, including the misconceptions that BMI can accurately measure health, that fatness necessarily leads to disease, and that dieting will improve health. They also help make sense of how poverty and oppression - such as racism, homophobia, and classism - affect life opportunity, self-worth, and even influence metabolism. Body insecurity is rampant, and it doesn´t have to be. It´s time to overcome our culture´s shame and distress about weight, to get real about inequalities and health, and to show every body respect. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Celeste Oliva.

When the biggest villain in the country makes you an offer you can´t refuse, what should you do? In my case, I decided to accept that offer, made by Mr. Vincent Vanzetti. Vanzetti hired me to find his missing daughter, Vittoria, while threatening reprisals should I fail in my task. While searching for Vittoria, I had to deal with the other members of the Vanzetti clan: Sherri, Vanzetti´s second wife, at 22, the same age as Vittoria. Sherri was an ´´actress´´, a porn star with ambitions to appear on reality TV; Catrin, Vanzetti´s granite-hard ex-wife, the power behind his criminal empire; and V.J. Parks, Vittoria´s boyfriend, a boxer, a young man in his prime, in training for a shot at the world title. Meanwhile, closer to home, it was decision time for yours truly and my lover, Dr. Alan Storey. Alan was keen on marriage while I was still coming to terms with my past and years of physical abuse. Could I find the courage to finally lay the ghosts of my past and pledge my future to Alan? Family Honour, the story of a villain and his family, the story of a moral dilemma. Should I kill in the name of justice, or should I allow a villain to walk free? In answering that question I discovered a lot about myself and the person I longed to be. 1. Language: English.

From the African bush to the streets of London, from the souks of Tangier and the concrete jungle of Hong Kong to the bling of Dubai and back to mother Africa; this is a riveting true story of what happens when an entrepreneur tries, tries, and tries, and fails more times than he succeeds. This book is a soul searching narrative full of highs and lows, culminating in the creation of a pan-African consumer brand that eventually is sold to a multibillion-dollar company. This is not a rags to riches story. Alpesh is living proof that in life we lose more times than we win. He talks about the dark side of entrepreneurship and the challenges of maintaining the human spirit to keep going no matter what. His journey confirms to us that our lives only really begin once we step outside of our comfort zone. If you are looking to quietly tiptoe through life and hope to reach the grave safely then this book may not help you! However, if you are looking to thrive regardless of what life throws at you and keep getting stronger and wiser in the process, then this book will help you on your journey. 1. Language: English.
