The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

One can only hope: Hassan Nasrallah is reportedly being treated for cancer. A fast-acting one, it seems. The “nonviolent” intifada, now with Grad rockets! A rocket landed on the outskirts of Ashkelon. Good to know that Mahmoud Abbas is heeding … Continue reading
I heard this on the Oscars last night and had to dig around until I found more than the few bars the orchestra played. I grew up on music like this as well as rock’n’roll. Adele is the closest we … Continue reading
I stopped watching Zero Hour (see title) because the creators seem to have missed the point of the J.J. Abrams crazy train: Yes, his shows are stupid and illogical, but they’re not usually broadly so, and they’re a ton of … Continue reading
