The worst has come and one man must rise to lead the fight against it. He thought he´d seen the worst. No one knew about the Strangers from beyond Noreela, and it was the Core´s job to make sure it stayed that way. Kel Boon was once an agent of the land´s most secret organization, tracking, observing, and eliminating the Strangers as part of an elite Core team. But then one horrifying encounter left his superior officer - and lover - dead, along with many innocents. And Kel has been running ever since. But the worst was still to come. Forsaking magic, living as a simple wood-carver, Kel came to the fishing village of Pavmouth Breaks to hide. But when a mysterious island appears out to sea during a cataclysmic storm, sending tidal waves to smash the village, his Core training tells him to expect the worst. How can he warn the surviving villagers - especially the beautiful young witch Namior - that the visitors sailing in from the island may not be the peace-loving pilgrims they claim to be? That this might be the invasion the Core has feared all along and that he, Kel Boon, may be Noreela´s last chance? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Panting.

Stormtroopers are the armored fist of the Empire, and are universally feared on Imperial planets. Naturally, Stormtroopers are one of the most common foes faced by the Rebellion, but their intensive training and seemingly-limitless numbers make them a danger to even the best prepared Rebel operatives. Of course, the Stormtroopers were first introduced in the Imperial Assault Core Set, but the Stormtroopers Villain Pack brings deadly new tactics and abilities to these most loyal servants of the Empire, as well as three new Stormtrooper figures that feature an alternate figure sculpt.In your campaigns, this expansion offers the new Vaders Fist Agenda set. You may goad the Rebel heroes into an attempt to sabotage the training facility of the renowned 501st Legion. On another mission, you might use the To the Last Man card to massively increase the attack and defensive power of the last Stormtrooper figure remaining in a unit, making this lone survivor a formidable opponent for any hero.Youll also find new skirmish game content in the Stormtroopers Villain Pack. A brand-new skirmish upgrade represents the training of the 501st Legion, offering two potent new abilities to any Stormtrooper squad enhanced with this card. At the same time, new Command cards reinforce figures after they die or invite your figures to engage in stealth tactics. Whether you play a campaign or a skirmish, this Villain Pack easily expands the ranks of your Stormtrooper armies.
God is moving in the hearts of powerful leaders in all the Colombian fighting factions, and peaceful meetings are now taking place in Havana, Cuba. Marxists guerillas, right-wing paramilitary, and the Colombian government each have their own agenda. Who would have guessed a meeting of the minds would take place under the helpful auspices of communist Cuba? And that these battle-scarred leaders would give reporters and missionaries the opportunity to challenge some of their core philosophies and even pray with them? During the often intense negotiations, it becomes obvious that even the most hardened individuals can have a change of heart. Previously seen only as men to be feared, these powerful leaders are now turning to the only one who can provide lasting peace - the Lord. The Stendals have witnessed Army generals having daily prayer and distributing Bibles to their troops, guerrilla commanders requesting and receiving prayer for healing, paramilitary commanders asking their many victims, one by one, to forgive them, and many other powerful demonstrations of what the Lord does through those willing to love their enemies. God´s agenda is winning, and we watch in awe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Christensen. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/071408/bk_acx0_071408_sample.mp3.

A fight to the end... The Confederation and the Union have fought each other to a standstill. Battered, exhausted fleets eye each other warily across a border that has been a battlefield for three bloody years. Neither side has the strength to attack, and both wait for reinforcements that will allow them to resume the fight. On the worlds of the Iron Belt, the heavily industrialized sector near the Confederation´s Core, massive shipyards operate around the clock, producing the great vessels that can end the war. The Union knows it cannot win the economic struggle with its wealthier, more productive enemy, and Sector Nine, its feared spy agency, is not idle. Their focus is not on the front lines, the ravaged border between the two nations, but far off, beyond the Rim, in the strange, militaristic realm known as the Alliance. Sector Nine´s intrigues are targeted at nothing less than instigating a coup and bringing to power a regime that favors war against the Confederation, a change in government that will bring the fresh fleets of the Alliance into the war, striking at the Confederation´s unguarded flank. Once again Captain Tyler Barron and his battleship Dauntless must go back to the Rim and on to the Alliance itself to somehow thwart the Union´s plan...and prevent a two-front war the Confederation cannot win. 1.

Death is a sweet release this blood mage will never be given. Nina Rodriguez would rather die than submit, but that choice isn´t hers. Because whoever kills her will take her death curse, a fate worse than death, and no one is willing to risk that. When she saved the lives of the vampire king and his mother, she didn’t do it for glory, but she’d be a liar if she didn’t think it would mean freedom. Instead, all it did was reveal her for who she is - a blood mage, the most feared creature in the world. Now, the vampires who rule the world have taken her as a slave to use her as a weapon. With her under their thumb, there’s nothing they can’t do. But it isn’t the pain they threaten or the dungeons they’ll throw her back into, that keeps her in line. It’s the vampire king who stands to change everything she’s ever believed in that is the key to her captivity. She knows she can’t have him, they’re enemies to the core, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting him. Death doesn’t scare her. It’s a cage she fears. But some cages are made out of more than just iron. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Dexter, Natalie Duke. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/112172/bk_acx0_112172_sample.mp3.
