Three full-length paranormal romances by Maree Anderson. The Crystal Warriors Series Bundle is approximately 234,000 words and contains: The Crystal Warrior (Book One, Chalcedony & Wulf's story), Ruby’s Dream (Book Two, Ruby and Kyan's story), Jade’s Choice (Book Three, Jade and Malach's story). THE CRYSTAL WARRIOR, Book One: When career-focused dancer Chalcedony (Chalcey) accidentally breaks a wulfenite crystal, she’s confronted by a man dressed like an ad for We Love Leather. Wulf has finally escaped from a centuries-long hell and he wants Chalcedony more than anything he’s wanted in his entire life. Before either of them realize what’s at stake, Chalcey is bonded to Wulf and his life is in her hands. And when the Crystal Guardian’s curse threatens everything she’s worked for, Chalcey must figure out how to save Wulf before it’s too late. (Winner: Romance Writers of New Zealand Clendon Award for full-length romantic manuscript) RUBY'S DREAM, Book Two: Ruby’s plus-sized, boyfriend-less, and turning thirty. But things are looking up when her BFF gives her a piece of kyanite crystal, and Ruby encounters the most beautiful man she’s ever seen. Wow, best birthday present ever! Pity a veritable Adonis like Kyan couldn’t possibly be attracted to someone like her. Kyan can’t figure what makes Ruby tick and seducing her proves to be a big mistake because now he wants more than Ruby’s prepared to give. They both think they’ve got plenty of time to sort through this mess… and then the Crystal Guardian intervenes, and time runs out for them both. JADE'S CHOICE, Book Three: Jade’s so desperate to provide for her chronically ill sister that she decides to sell herself. Her first “client” turns out to be the Crystal Guardian, who promptly locks Jade in a motel room with Malach, the Crystal Warrior destined to be her life-mate. Malach is a complex, compelling man, and he soon captures Jade’s heart. But Malach has a dark secret: he plans to kill himself rather than risk being imprisoned in his cursed crystal a third time. And saving him could be a losing battle… because he’s still in love with the woman who refused to bond with him decades ago. Also available in The Crystal Warriors Series: OPAL'S WISH (Book 4, Opal & Danbur's story)

"An inside view of the Lakota world-of the meaning of Lakota song and dance, of their history, of what it is to be Lakota in America today. . . . A lasting personal tribute to the Lakota way of living."-Whole Earth Review. "A unique, in-depth presentation on Lakota music and the profession of singer, a useful contemporary Oglala representation of the core of their culture, and a version of the involvement of the American Indian Movement on Pine Ridge Reservation, told by a man who was affiliated but not a principal leader. . . . This is a subjective statement, well and persuasively written."-Choice. Severt Young Bear stood in the light-in the center ring at powwows and other gatherings of Lakota people. As founder and, for many years, lead singer of the Porcupine Singers, a traditional singing and drumming group, he also stood, figuratively, in the light of understanding the cherished Lakota heritage. Young Bear's own life in Brotherhood Community, Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation, is the linchpin of this narrative, which ranges across the landscape of Dakota culture, from the significance of names to the search for modern Lakota identity, from Lakota oral traditions to powwows and giveaways, from child-rearing practices to humor and leadership. "Music is at the center of Lakota life, " says Young Bear; he describes in rich detail the origins and varieties of Lakota song and dance. Severt Young Bear performed with the Porcupine Singers throughout North America, taught at Oglala Lakota College, and served on the Oglala Sioux tribal council. He was music and dance consultant for the films Dances with Wolves and Thunder Heart. This book is the fruit of his longfriendship and collaboration with R. D. Theisz, a fellow Porcupine Singer and professor of communications and education at Black Hills State University.

The tea ceremony also had overtones of Taoism, where the emphasis was on 'the way' of doing things, a concept also paramount in understanding the martial arts and their later expression as bushido-, the 'Way of the Warrior'.

Combines material previously published as Warrior 29: Ashigaru 1467-1649, Warrior 64: Ninja AD 1460-1650, Warrior 70: Japanese Warrior Monks AD 949-1603, with a new section on Samurai, new images, and a new introduction and conclusion. Driven by strict codes of honour and bound by deep allegiances of rank, family or religion, the elite warriors of medieval Japan were bold fighters, loyal comrades and deadly enemies, With rare material from Japanese sources and lavish artwork and photography, this book examines the military lives, beliefs and battle experience of four formidable warrior types – samurai, ninja, warrior monk and ashigaru foot soldier – resulting in a highly authoritative account of Japan's warrior elite.

Much of our everyday environment affects us subconsciously and recent research showing how the brain processes information. The difference between the large amount of sensory input that the brain receives and what little our minds perceive is huge. This book deals with various aspects of “The Unconscious Zone ”, which gives an unconscious influence of experiences and non-conscious decision that is often called intuition. In the movie "in the mind of John Malkovich" pressed the main character on the elevator button 7 1/2 and ended up in a completely different world, where he through a hidden door could see into and check John Malkovich's brain. Recent research has shown that magnetic resonance (fMRI) can map the brain's internal functions and create a library that can be interpreted and the person's thoughts can be followed. Using Transcranial Magnetic stimulation (TMS), one with a magnetic field can control the behavior of the different centers of the brain and also get a hand to perform movements or blocking mental functions. A companion piece to this is a journey into the "The Unconscious Zone" as the book conveys.
