Beyond Dunharrow and the Dimholt Vale lies the Dark Door, entrance to the perilous Paths of the Dead. No mortal feet dare walk this road, for the way beneath the mountains is guarded by an army of lifeless spectres ruled by the treacherous King of the Dead.

For eight years, I've hunted any monster that the College is willing to pay me for. They've pitted me against vampires, werewolves, fairies, and rogue wizards. After all that, it seems that I've finally earned a bit of trust. Now the College has a problem. A mummy named Ptah has managed to secure a stranglehold on real quicksilver, a rare alchemical reagent. I don't do magic, but that's exactly why they called me - wizards aren't welcome in Egypt. So the High Magus is sending me in alone. First I need to get permission from the djinni to enter their lands and then try to negotiate with an immortal alchemist on behalf of the entire Merlinic order for a resource no longer obtainable anywhere else on Earth. No pressure. But I have some ideas on how to get them on my side. I can be very persuasive… This and all Lily Quinn stories contain graphic depictions of sexual acts. Lots of them. There's other stuff, too, like fun stories and crazy adventures, but these books are definitely for adults only. You have been warned. Enjoy!

Umfang: 360 Seiten Dieses Buch beinhaltet folgende Romane: Im Schatten des Sonnengottes Mein Freund Tutenchamun Band 1: Falsche Mumien Mein Freund Tutenchamun Band 2: Grabräuber IM SCHATTEN DES SONNENGOTTES: Der junge Echnaton ist von auffälliger Hässlichkeit und wird deshalb am Hof seines Vaters, des Pharao Amenophis, von der Priesterschaft geächtet. Als sein Vertrauter und Lehrer Ptah-Koram ermordet wird, setzt er alles daran, gemeinsam mit Nofretete den Verantwortlichen zu finden. Aber er kann nichts gegen die Täter und Auftraggeber tun. Doch als Echnatons Bruder stirbt, wird er, der vor den Augen der Götter bisher verborgen werden musste, plötzlich Pharao &#8230; MEIN FREUND TUTENCHAMUN 1 und 2: Die Abenteuer des zehnjährigen Herkos am Hof des jungen Pharao Tutenchamun. Staub wirbelte hoch. Pferde wieherten laut auf, und Herkos sah den Streitwagen auf sich zu rasen. Die Pferde schienen vollkommen ausser Kontrolle geraten zu sein. Der zehnjährige Junge stand da und für einen kurzen Moment war er wie erstarrt. Ein Schrei schrillte ihm entgegen. In der dichten Staubwolke, die den dahin rasenden Streitwagen umgab, war so gut wie nichts vom Wagenlenker zu sehen, ausser einem Schatten. Der Wagen hob sich dunkel gegen die im Osten aufgehende Sonne ab und raste Richtung Westen. Der Westen - das war für die Bewohner Ägyptens ein anderes Wort für Totenreich. Denn im Westen ging die Sonne unter. Sie starb ebenso wie der Mensch, verschwand am Abend hinter dem Horizont und weilte dann in der Nacht im Totenreich, ehe sie am Morgen im Osten wieder aufging. Die Westlichen nannte man deshalb auch die Toten - und obwohl der zehnjährige Herkos kein Ägypter war und auch nicht an die Götter dieses Landes glaubte, wurde ihm nun, beim Anblick des Streitwagens doch ganz anders. Mit der aufgehenden Morgensonne im Rücken sah es nämlich fast so aus, als würde Osiris, der Herr des Totenreichs selbst, auf ihn zufahren. Herkos war schon lange genug in Ägypten, um all die Geschichten über Osiris gehört zu haben. Aber bisher hatte er immer an den Göttern seiner eigenen, fernen Heimat festgehalten und in den Legenden der Ägypter nur spannende Erzählungen gesehen. Osiris war ermordet worden und später wieder auferstanden - und nur durch diesen Mord war das Totenreich überhaupt entstanden, dessen Herr er seitdem war. Konnte es vielleicht sein, dass der Totengott gekommen war, ihn zu holen?
THEY’RE IN FOR THE FIGHT OF THEIR LIVES! Prepare to sink your claws into Catfight, a brutal and darkly hilarious film that combines the violence of Fight Club and the poignant comedy of Arrested Development, all mashed into one of the most original and funniest movies of recent years. Struggling artist Ashley (Anne Heche) and wealthy housewife Veronica (Sandra Oh) were friends at college, but their paths have not crossed since. When they find themselves attending the same event (Ashley working as a waiter at Veronica’s rich husband’s party), their initial thinly-veiled verbal pleasantries soon take a turn, leading to an all-out brawl and all-consuming rivalry that will keep these two locked in combat for years. With supporting appearances from Alicia Silverstone as Ashley’s lesbian love interest, and Dylan Baker playing an overworked coma doctor, Catfight turns the portrayal of women’s fights in movies on its head in the most violent of ways possible, landing a killer satirical blow at modern day society.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Women have contributed to science from its earliest days, but as contributors they have generally not been acknowledged. Historians with an interest in gender and science have illuminated the contributions women have made, the barriers they have faced, and the strategies implemented to have their work accepted. The involvement of women in the field of medicine has been recorded in several early civilizations. An Egyptian, Merit Ptah (2700 BC), described in an inscription as "chief physician", is the earliest woman named in the history of science. Agamede was cited by Homer as a healer in Greece before the Trojan War. Agnodike was the first female physician to practice legally in 4th century BC Athens.
