Chinese-American twins Milly and Billy have got it rough: bad relationships, professional failures, and a struggling restaurant. On top of that, their stern mother, Ipo is forcing them to take time to clear out the decrepit house next door, a house that was the site of a grisly murder. Inside the ruined home the twins are in for a night of nightmares as they discover that their parents are much more than they seem… and that they may possess the same supernatural gifts.

Book Description
A hardcover run-on repackage of New York Times bestseller V.E. Schwab's Vicious, a masterful tale of ambition, jealousy, and superpowers which will include: *A new cover by Wil Staehle, cover artist of the iconic Shades of Magic trilogy covers *Schwab's Tor.com short story set within the Vicious universe, "Warm Up" *A teaser for the upcoming sequel, Vengeful Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end? In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn't automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question. "A dynamic and original twist on what it means to be a hero and a villain. A killer from page one...highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Marvel Universe vs The Avengers and Patient Zero

Category : Juvenile Fiction
Languages : en
Pages : 60

Book Description
This is the story of Matt Murat, a boy who lives in the town named Rata-tat-tat. Matts best friends are his cat whom he calls Tit-For-Tat and Pat, a lovely velvet winged bat that lives in Matts barn on their farm in Rata-tat-tat. The three go on a mission to rescue the poor bats and gnats of Splazat! The village of Splazat is ruled by a sorcerer, a rat, and his frat! On the very night that Nat and his frat are celebrating the Rats Sabbat, Matt, Pat the bat and Tit-For-Tat arrive to settle the score with Nat and his frat of rats. Sheer terror and mayhem await the brave trio after their cover is exposed! Whinchat dispatches her minions of rats to attack the intruders but the tables abruptly turn on them in this unforgettable and surprise ending to the Villains of Splazat! The Villains of Splazat is, arguably, one of the most educationally stimulating and fun childrens adventure tales to come along since the writings of Maurice Sendaks, Where the Wild Things Are and the tongue twisting tomfoolery of the Dr. Seusss books. The Villains of Splazat is suitable for parents to read to preschool aged children, as well as for older children to read for themselves. The Villains of Splazat is written in metrical form with alliteration using words ending in at, if you have not already guessed. Initially, the words are very easy, but grow in complexity throughout the story, which is why it can be enjoyed by a wider age range. When read aloud, the alliteration and increasing complexity of the words, which become challenging tongue twisters at times, make the book humorous and enjoyable entertainment for parent and child. It is also; however, an educational tool for expanding the vocabulary of children, and a large glossary is included to help with definitions and correct pronunciation. Have fun reading!

The Ethics of Belief

The Ethics of Belief PDF Book Detail Author: Jonathan Matheson
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 019151005X
Category : Philosophy
Languages : en
Pages : 320

Book Description
How do people form beliefs, and how should they do so? This book presents seventeen new essays on these questions, drawing together perspectives from philosophy and psychology. The first section explores the ethics of belief from an individualistic framework. It begins by examining the question of doxastic voluntarism-i.e., the extent to which people have control over their beliefs. It then shifts to focusing on the kinds of character that epistemic agents should cultivate, what their epistemic ends ought to be, and the way in which these issues are related to other traditional questions in epistemology. The section concludes by examining questions of epistemic value, of whether knowledge is in some sense primary, and of whether the ethics of belief falls within the domain of epistemology or ethics. The second section extends this traditional debate to issues concerning the social dimensions of belief formation. It begins with essays by social psychologists discussing the past three decades of research in 'lay epistemics'. It continues by examining Humean, Kantian, and feminist insights into the social aspects of belief formation, as well as questions concerning the ethics of assertion. The section concludes with a series of essays examining a topic that is currently of great interest to epistemologists: namely, the significance of peer disagreement.
