Shotgun Falls Shifters Mega Box Set Books 1-6 by Ava Benton,Libby Bernard Pdf

Mismatched Charlotte Perkins loves Shotgun Falls. Always has. Loves the town. Loves the people. So when shop owner Sylvia Redferne asks her to help her test a new dating app, she doesn’t think twice about spearheading the operation. What Charlotte hadn’t counted on? Logan Fourier. Logan’s a wolf shifter that’s damned good on computers. He doesn’t mind doing Sylvia Redferne a favor and building a dating app. Who would, considering how much Sylvia’s offering to pay him for his services. What Logan hadn’t counted on? Charlotte’s a spitfire with a tough shell. How’s he supposed to crack that shell when she thinks he’s an alphahole instead of an alpha. Things don’t go so well when he decides to create a dummy account and fools her into falling for his alter ego. Things really go to hell in a handbasket when the secret he’s been harboring resurfaces. Can busybody Sylvia Redferne help this couple find their way back to each other or have Logan’s bullheadedness and Charlotte’s defenses put up more obstacles than a witch stripped of her powers can handle? Misguided One of Charlotte Perkins’ besties has told Charlotte not to include her in the dating app that Logan Fourier created. The same app that more or less gave Charlotte and Logan their HEA. Why not? Why wouldn’t Charlotte want her own happily ever after with a hunky shifter? Well, for starters, Charlotte hasn’t told any of her besties that the guys on the dating app, the guys from Shotgun Falls aren’t regular guys. How’s Charlotte supposed to even bring that up? Of course that’s not what concerns Hope Lawrence. She has no online presence. She can’t afford to. She’s a girl on the run from her mafia father’s cronies. Once, long ago, Hope Delmonico—not Lawrence—was the apple of her daddy’s eye. She found a secret place to hide in his study. He never knew that Hope was busy pretending to be a spy. No one did. The men who snuck in and killed her father’s right hand man certainly had no idea. Her father standing aside and watching Uncle Vito bleeding out on his floor certainly didn’t know. Hope’s belief in goodness was shattered that day. She never told anyone. Until she did. And that was the wrong man. Her former boyfriend—former because he betrayed her and told his father—more or less set the mafia after her. And her own father, well, she doesn’t know if she can trust him or not, so Hope did what any mafia princess would do. She took the money and ran. And hid. Until now. Mistaken Micah’s a shifter. More like a shifter with a problem. There’s a curse on a rival pack of wolf shifters. Shouldn’t be his problem should it? Or so he thought. Well, he was quite mistaken. Sometimes, what affects one can affect all. Esme Redferne’s a witch. A witch with a grudge. In her attempt to seek vengeance—no, justice—she’s found herself at the mercy of a ruthless wolfpack with a fierce leader who has a grudge. Micah is unsure of his reaction around Esme. He should’ve dragged her out of her cabin and turned her in he didn’t. Why the heck not? He questions his own motives. Questions his emotions. He’s giving her a chance. He’s wondering why she’d cast a curse that’ll only end up with all the witches probably getting hurt from the fallout. He tries to tell himself it’s not his problem. Except, now it seems it is. Misjudged Someone’s killing shifters. Who? Why? Wolf shifter Nico’s hellbent on finding out who is slaughtering and dismembering shifters. If only he could escape the guilt he feels. He’s unforgivable. How can he expect to be forgiven when he can’t even forgive himself. Megan works at a wolf sanctuary. Wolves. Plain ol’ everyday wolves. What happens when she hits a wolf with her vehicle? What about when she discovers the injured wolf is actually a wolf shifter? Shift happens. That’s what. Mischief Drake’s returned to his home in Pine Cove. He’s back but his heart is heavy. There are too many memories here, and some of them are heartbreaking. He bucks up and decides he’s got to do what’s right, even if it’s hard as hell. Audra doesn’t need saving. At least, she doesn’t think she does. But she is running. She’s on the run and hiding and luckily, Sylvia Redferne has a solution. A job tending bar in Pine Cove. There’s something about this town, though. Pine Cove’s citizens are… she can’t put her finger on it, but she won’t stop being inquisitive about the matter. Things go a little off course for both Audra and Drake when they meet and sparks fly. Good sparks. Until a figure from her past shows up. How will Drake and his wolf handle this? Misbehave Xavier, part of Drake's old team has a condition. One set of inoculations for overseas missions has left his wolf ferocious and has made Xavier prone to random rages that result in unpredictable and unplanned shifting. He doesn't trust himself around anyone and isn't too happy that Drake has asked him to serve as a bodyguard to a fiery daughter of a millionaire. Olivia has no clue that her best friends have all become the mates of shifters. Nope, she lives in a blissful ignorance. Well, until her father's murder. And then there are attempts made on her own life. When her friend's fiancé offers her a bodyguard, she reluctantly agrees. Who knew bodyguards could be so sexy. And fanged. With fur. Oh, boy. Someone’s bitten off more than they could chew.

Religion and the Decline of Magic by Keith Thomas Pdf

Witchcraft, astrology, divination and every kind of popular magic flourished in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, from the belief that a blessed amulet could prevent the assaults of the Devil to the use of the same charms to recover stolen goods. At the same time the Protestant Reformation attempted to take the magic out of religion, and scientists were developing new explanations of the universe. Keith Thomas's classic analysis of beliefs held on every level of English society begins with the collapse of the medieval Church and ends with the changing intellectual atmosphere around 1700, when science and rationalism began to challenge the older systems of belief.

The Lancashire Witches by Philip C. Almond Pdf

In the febrile religious and political climate of late sixteenth-century England, when the grip of the Reformation was as yet fragile and insecure, and underground papism still perceived to be rife, Lancashire was felt by the Protestant authorities to be a sinister corner of superstition, lawlessness and popery. And it was around Pendle Hill, a sombre ridge that looms over the intersecting pastures, meadows and moorland of the Ribble Valley, that their suspicions took infamous shape. The arraignment of the Lancashire witches in the assizes of Lancaster during 1612 is England's most notorious witch-trial. The women who lived in the vicinity of Pendle, who were accused, convicted and hanged alongside the so-called 'Salmesbury Witches', were more than just wicked sorcerers whose malign incantations caused others harm. They were reputed to be part of a dense network of devilry and mischief that revealed itself as much in hidden celebration of the Mass as in malevolent magic. They had to be eliminated to set an example to others. In this remarkable and authoritative treatment, published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the case of the Lancashire witches, Philip C Almond evokes all the fear, drama and paranoia of those volatile times: the bleak story of the storm over Pendle.

Reading Witchcraft by Marion Gibson Pdf

In this original study of witchcraft, Gibson explores the stories told by and about witches and their 'victims' through trial records, early news books, pamphlets and fascinating personal accounts. The author discusses the issues surrounding the interpretation of original historical sources and demonstrates that their representations of witchcraft are far from straight forward or reliable. Innovative and thought-provoking, this book sheds new light on early modern people's responses to witches and on the sometimes bizarre flexibility of the human imagination.

Divine Horror by Cynthia J. Miller,A. Bowdoin Van Riper Pdf

From Rosemary’s Baby (1968) to The Witch (2015), horror films use religious entities to both inspire and combat fear and to call into question or affirm the moral order. Churches provide sanctuary, clergy cast out evil, religious icons become weapons, holy ground becomes battleground—but all of these may be turned from their original purpose. This collection of new essays explores fifty years of genre horror in which manifestations of the sacred or profane play a material role. The contributors explore portrayals of the war between good and evil and their archetypes in such classics as The Omen (1976), The Exorcist (1973) and Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968), as well as in popular franchises like Hellraiser and Hellboy and cult films such as God Told Me To (1976), Thirst (2009) and Frailty (2001).

Moral Power by Koen Stroeken Pdf

Neither power nor morality but both. Moral power is what Sukuma farmers in Tanzania in times of crisis attribute to an unknown figure they call their witch. A universal process is involved, as much bodily as social, which obstructs the patient's recovery. Healers turn the table on the witch through rituals showing that the community and the ancestral spirits side with the victim. In contrast to biomedicine, their magic and divination introduce moral values that assess the state of the system and that remove the obstacles to what is taken as key: self-healing. The implied 'sensory shifts' and therapeutic effectiveness have largely eluded the literature on witchcraft. This book shows how to comprehend culture other than through the prism of identity politics. It offers a framework to comprehend the rise of witch killings and human sacrifice, just as ritual initiation disappears.
