As Indra the Serpent of the Twelve Divine Generals closes in on the merfolk town, Eita is faced with the toughest decision of his life. Should he join the merfolk in their battle--a conflict which has nothing to do with him, and where the merfolk don't even want his help--or should he make a strategic retreat? As if this wasn't a difficult enough choice, Steela, the Witch of the Deep, informs Eita that he will soon be forced to make an even more fateful decision!
Eita's got a plan for taking out the invading army and their gigas--but that plan doesn't take into account the Divine General Vajra the Dog, or its driver, the sharp-shooting Hunter. When Hunter's counterstrike causes an ice wall to collapse, trapping Eita alone in a cave with the "lone wolf" Freki, things start to heat up... and the two of them discover an unexpected ally. The hunter becomes the hunted in Volume 5 of this monstrous fantasy adventure!
Boss Battle By The Sea! Sun, sand, and girls in bikinis playing volleyball...it's Eita's dream come true! Except for one little detail--these girls are half-animal.

All too soon, Eita, Aero, Jawea, and Asterio must leave their beach paradise to seek out Steela, the Witch of the Deep. But, first, Eita must face his murkiest opponent yet: the evil Angler!

In 1990, New City Press, in conjunction with the Augustinian Heritage Institute, began the project knows as: The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. The plan is to translate and publish all 132 works of Saint Augustine, his entire corpus into modern English. This represents the first time in which The Works of Saint Augustine will all be translated into English. Many existing translations were often archaic or faulty, and the scholarship was outdated. New City Press is proud to offer the best modern translations available. The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century will be translated into 49 published books. To date, 41 books have been published by NCP containing 93 of The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. Augustine's writings are useful to anyone interested in patristics, church history, theology and Western civilization. -- Publisher.

A New Zealand Book of Beasts is a groundbreaking examination of the interactions between humans and 'nonhuman animals' - both real and imagined - in New Zealand's arts and literature, popular culture, historiography, media and everyday life. Structured in four parts - Animal Icons, Animal Companions, Art Animals and Controversial Animals - the Book of Beasts touches on topics as diverse as moa-hunting and the SPCA, pest-control and pet-keeping, whaling and whale-watching; on species ranging from sheep to sperm whales and from pekapeka to possums; and on the works of authors and artists as various as Samuel Butler and Witi Ihimaera, Lady Mary Anne Barker and Janet Frame, Michael Parekowhai and Don Binney, Bill Hammond and Fiona Pardington. In examining through literature, art and culture the ways New Zealanders use and abuse, shape and are shaped by, glorify and co-opt, and describe and imagine animals, the authors tell us a great deal about our society and culture: how we understand our own identities and those of others; how we regard, inhabit and make use of the natural world; and how we think about what to buy, eat, wear, watch and read. This is an engaging, original and scholarly rigorous book of cultural criticism and a thoughtful addition to New Zealand literature.
