Young Midshipman Ichiro Sato joined the Terran Navy to escape a tyrannical father and find freedom among the stars. He had no idea when he boarded the survey starship Aurora for his first assignment that he and his crew would make humanity’s first contact with a sentient alien species. In an uncharted star system where Aurora’s crew discovers two planets inhabited by a non-human civilization, Aurora is disabled by gigantic alien starships before she can escape. Boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs, the aliens learn all there is to know about the ship, including all its stored information about humanity, before the crew is slaughtered in a series of ritual combats. Ichiro, the sole survivor, is returned to Earth as a messenger to warn of the aliens’ coming invasion of human space.

For that is the Way of the Kreelan Empire, an ancient and dying race that has waged war across the galaxy for a hundred thousand years, slaughtering every sentient species it has encountered in a desperate search for the One, a savior foretold in an ages-old prophecy who can rescue them from looming extinction. For the Kreelans, who will die out in a handful of generations, the conflict with humanity will be The Last War.

With Earth leading a fragile coalition of military forces to mount a defense against what many believe is nothing more than a hoax, Ichiro again finds himself at the sharp end of the spear aboard a Terran destroyer. Together with journalist Stephanie Guillaume, Legionnaire Roland Mills, and the irrepressible General James Sparks, Ichiro and the other men and women of the coalition put their lives on the line against an enemy none of them could ever have imagined.

Take a walk on the darkside. This chilling, high-octane thriller takes you to parts of Bangkok no tourist should ever go, a world where life is cheap and morality non-existent.
Hungry crocodiles, fast action, and strong characterizations make for a riveting read. The main character, Chance, is an enigma: family-orientated, loyal and loving… and a cold-blooded killer….

One of the greatest contributions you can make to society, no matter where you live, is to be healthy – both physically and mentally. It is one of the best ways to take pride in yourself. Learning how to have a six-pack can build confidence in all areas of life.

If you live in a bustling city or in the leafy suburbs, the one thing that everyone has in common is publicly available FREE fitness equipment. I’m not talking about dedicated weight machines, but instead an assortment of fences, staircases, ledges, park benches for workouts that involve nothing but your own body weight.

Why? It’s all about getting back to basics, and using the tools that the great outdoors provides us, to improve and enhance our lives and to become urban warriors of fitness! You owe it to yourself to expand your workout regimen, and utilize your urban environment to achieve optimum health and vitality.

It’s all about balance with nature, and using your body’s weight to get in shape. Using your own bodyweight can be challenging, but will help you realize your own potential. Remember those school days of playing football, basketball, baseball or field hockey? The workouts for training consisted of nothing but jumping jacks, push-ups, leg lifts and sit-ups. It worked – right?

No matter where you live, how old you are or what shape you are in, outdoor exercises using your own body weight is the answer. You can workout anytime and anywhere, because your workout equipment is always available and with you. It is resistance training at its best. Your body has its own built-in, natural limits to help you reach your fitness goals.

Lowcountry Shrimp Boil
by Hayden Momot
Rating: 5.0 Stars
Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine
Price: $0.00 Save $0.99

Lowcountry Shrimp Boil shares with the reader an authentic recipe for a Southern dish that hails from the State of South Carolina. The origins of this recipe are from the beautiful and charming City of Beaufort, South Carolina. This dish is sometimes referred to as Frogmore Stew (yet frogs are not part of the recipe). The name comes from Frogmore, a small community on Saint Helena Island, near Beaufort, South Carolina. You know it is authentic Frogmore Stew when it contains shrimp (not crab or crawfish), corn on the cob, and red potatoes.

The spice mix is a special blend of seasonings, a little different for each family, yet all have a similar taste that brings to the table a bite of the South. Tabasco sauce is splashed on at the table to bring a bit of heat to the palate. The boil is prepared outside, using a propane cooker and steaming pot. It is traditionally served, drained and then poured, onto a picnic table covered with newspaper. The shrimp boil is piled high in the center of the table and each guest picks out what they wish to eat.

This is a festive dish served with ice-cold beer and ice-cold sweet tea. It stands alone and does not need accompanying dishes. Lowcountry Shrimp Boil offers the recipe for an appetizer of hot boiled peanuts; this is a specialty from Charleston, South Carolina. Boiled peanuts can be served while the guests are waiting for the shrimp boil to be prepared.

The meal can be concluded with a delicious Southern dessert, peach pie. Lowcountry Shrimp Boil shares with the reader the recipe for homemade pie slab pie, which can be made a day or two ahead and served cold after the meal for the final touches of an authentic Southern treat.
