The epic Vampire Empire trilogy rushes to a heart-wrenching conclusion of honor and love, hatred and vengeance, sacrifice and loss. A war to the death. Empress Adele has launched a grand crusade against the vampire clans of the north. Prince Gareth, the vampire lord of Scotland, serves the Equatorian cause, fighting in the bloody trenches of France in his guise as the dashing Greyfriar. But the human armies are pinned down, battered by harsh weather and merciless attacks from vampire packs. To even the odds, Adele unleashes the power of her geomancy, a fearsome weapon capable of slaughtering vampires in vast numbers. However, the power she expends threatens her own life even as she questions the morality of such a weapon. As the war turns ever bloodier and Adele is threatened by betrayal, Gareth faces a terrible choice. Their only hope is a desperate strike against the lord of the vampire clans--Gareth's brother, Cesare. It is a gamble that could win the war or signal the final days of the Greyfriar. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A brilliant narrative history tracing today’s troubles back to the grandiose imperial overreach of Great Britain and the United States. Kingmakers is the gripping story of how the modern Middle East came to be, as told through the lives of the Britons and Americans who shaped it. Some are famous (Lawrence of Arabia and Gertrude Bell); others infamous (Harry St. John Philby, father of Kim); some forgotten (Sir Mark Sykes, Israel’s godfather, and A. T. Wilson, the territorial creator of Iraq). All helped enthrone rulers in a region whose very name is an Anglo-American invention. The aim of this engrossing character-driven narrative is to restore to life the colorful figures who gave us the Middle East in which Americans are enmeshed today.

Their vast empire was legendary-land holdings, film interests, untold wealth and the clout of Los Angeles' mightiest newspaper. But it wasn't enough for the Collingsworths. Now, the same restless passion for power that conquered California threatens to tear the family apart Thomas Collingsworth, the patriarch, stopped at nothing to build an empire from his humble origins until a specter from the past nearly destroyed it all. Hollis, his son, learned early that every man had his price and no price was too great if it would expand the family's power and crush its enemies. Deborah, the ravishing international star, shared Hollis' darkest secret and plotted her own revenge. Andrew, the grandson, was carefully groomed to lead the dynasty to the throne of national politics until an unknown assailant brought him down. And Peter Russell. His relentless search for the parents he never knew threatened to topple even the magnificent Collingsworths. Arelo Sederberg, a veteran newspaper writer and editor, is the author of six novels. He also spent six years as a public relations executive for Howard Hughes, and was sole spokesman for the reclusive billionaire at the time of Hughes death in 1976.

Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games, and they grow up to be influential players in their own right. At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Married at age fourteen, she is soon left widowed and fatherless, her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. Anne manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.

In Women Are Kingmakers Bishop Wellington Boone declares that women are God's Great Idea, created to fulfill the destiny of God through their unique power of influence. In every area of society, some women stand out from the crowd. Author Wellington Boone calls them Kingmakers. He writes, "They're the women that people remember. They're the women that people should listen to. They're the wives, mothers, teachers, and managers who helped others become what they are today. You don't see the mom behind a person who becomes great, but she's a Kingmaker, whether you see her or not. She's under acknowledged and under-appreciated, but she's a Kingmaker just the same. "A Kingmaker is the wife that every man wants. She's the woman you want to manage your company. She's the team player who helps you to win. For a Kingmaker, no task is too difficult; no sacrifice too great. She has an inner substance that makes a difference in the lives of others. She's a Kingmaker." Who are the Kingmakers? A Kingmaker has the power of influence over another person's life and the ability from God to make that person great. They're the Wives men love to come home to. They're the Mommas kids look for in the stands. They're the Managers who rebuild underperforming companies.
