The force of a soulful love is a constant reminder that you should never give up, nor let go, if there is even the slightest hope that someone who you have been told is dead, is very much alive. It all just relies on a link, a touch, a ray of hope that will entwine it all together. Do you go against everything you know to find the truth about a syndicate of criminals even if it means breaking the oath that you have stood by since you can remember? Ultimately, it all comes down to one small question that can change your life forever. Do you hold on, or do you let go, of the one person who really matters? Sometimes, what's left behind... will be impossible to forget. I realised that I had to be in a similar hospital to the one they had taken me too before, and in a storage room or something that had been emptied. I wanted to scream, but the cloth around my mouth left me unable. As far as that man outside my door would think, I was still out of it. I tried to move the chair by thrusting my whole body, but it didn't move so I guessed it was attached to the bench that looked as though it skirted the whole room. There was more to life than this, surely. There had to be answers to the questions hiding deep within me. I had always been able to find my answers. I just needed to work out how to put my finger on the clues and let them lead the way. Why was I there? Why was I so important? Why was Zavier? I had to think hard, because I know better than anyone that the answers rely on a link, a touch, a ray of hope that will entwine everything together. I just need those answers to become me, like they had always done in the past. I needed to be able to put the pieces of this sick puzzle together so I could understand what I was facing. Would I die trying? I wanted to be able to breathe again, freely, like I used to when I was a child. I wanted this weight of the unknown or whatever it was holding me down to lift from me and disappear into thin air... just the way all my hopes and dreams had done. I just wanted my life to be safe.

Only a few months after embracing her magical powers, defeating a dark witch at her high school, and banishing a faerie prince back to his realm, sixteen-year-old Madison Riley is back in book three of the Embrace series—and doing the bidding of a demon. She has no choice but to do so if she wants him to honor the deal they made at his crossroads territory to save the life of someone she loves. Twenty years of service to a creature of hell is a big price, but it sure beats the alternative: selling her soul. But life gets complicated when you’re the beck-and-call witch of a crossroad demon. Caden, the demon she serves, wants to become master of Death Himself, and he has the means to do it as long as Madison helps him find all the pieces of an enchanted “binding” necklace. It’s up to Madison and her coven to foil his plans, but Caden’s intentions aren't entirely evil—and the kisses he seals his deals with aren’t too bad either. As Caden's motives test Madison’s trust, his shameful flirting tries her boyfriend Isaac’s patience. But being caught in a love triangle with two supernatural hotties is perhaps the least of her concerns when the coven’s interference in Caden’s plot might just cost Madison her life and unleash hell on earth.

Music and Painting in the Nineteenth Century
Author: Marsha Morton,Peter L. Schmunk
This collection of essays by musicologists and art historians explores the reciprocal influences between music and painting during the nineteenth century, a critical period of gestation when instrumental music was identified as the paradigmatic expressive art and theoretically aligned with painting in the formulation ut pictura musica (as with music, so with painting). Under music's influence, painting approached the threshold of abstraction; concurrently many composers cultivated pictorial effects in their music. Individual essays address such themes as visualization in music, the literary vs. pictorial basis of the symphonic poem, musical pictorialism in painting and lithography, and the influence of Wagner on the visual arts. In these and other ways, both composers and painters actively participated in interarts discourses in seeking to redefine the very identity and aims of their art. Also includes 17 musical examples.
