And that time is very close. Nimia is forced to attend shocking lessons in the erotic arts; lessons that leave her body aroused and her mind conflicted. Because while she's attracted to Sygarius's power and eroticism, her spirit rebels at being his slave. Then one of Sygarius's allies comes to visit. Smart and ambitious, Clovis burns to take over Sygarius's kingdom--and the beautiful Nimia. And though her virginity is meant for Sygarius, Clovis takes it with her enthusiastic consent. When Sygarius learns that she is no longer a virgin, Nimia flees for her life. But can she find Clovis before the wrath of Sygarius--and imminent death--finds her first?

And when Clovis rescues her from Sygarius, she steals the chalice to take with her.A Christian priest suspects it's the Holy Grail, but Nimia has a strong feeling it's a remnant of her lost tribe, the Phanne.

1,001 Facts that Will Scare the S#*t Out of You

by Cary Mcneal

Fact: Chocolate contains the alkaloid theobromine, which in high doses can be toxic to humans, and in even small amounts can kill dogs, parrots, horses, and cats.

I wonder how many cats have died because of this confusion.Fact: The most germ-laden place on your toilet isn't the seat or even the bowl: It's the handle. The solution: Don't flush. Let the next guy worry about it.There are "just the facts"--and then there are just the facts that will frighten the bejeezus out of you. And thanks to this little gem of a bathroom book, you'll never look at the world the same way again, without, er, dry heaving a little bit.From the sneaky fish that can swim up our genitals to the e coli bacteria lurking in the very water we drink, disturbing phenomena are everywhere we turn. Educational, entertaining, and undeniably horrifying, this book isn't guaranteed to help you, um, go to the bathroom, but it's certain to make your time there more . . . informed.
