In New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s stunning novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest adventure of her life. MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master’s spell. He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought—and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust. As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister’s diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge. It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits.

This book is the result of a research project begun by the author in 1958 with the aim of answering two questions: First, what is the rationality of the economic systems that appear and disappear throughout history—in other words, what is their hidden logic and the underlying necessity for them to exist, or to have existed? Second, what are the conditions for a rational understanding of these systems—in other words, for a fully developed comparative economic science? The field of investigation opened up by these two questions is vast, touching on the foundations of social reality and on how to understand them. The author, being a Marxist, sought the answers, as he writes, ‘not in philosophy or by philosophical means, but in and through examining the knowledge accumulated by the sciences.’ The stages of his journey from philosophy to economics and then to anthropology are indicated by the divisions of his book. Godelier rejects, at the outset, any attempt to tackle the question of rationality or irrationality of economic science and of economic realities from the angle of an a priori idea, a speculative definition of what is rational. Such an approach can yield only, he feels, an ideological result. Rather, he treats the appearance and disappearance of social and economic systems in history as being governed by a necessity ‘wholly internal to the concrete structures of social life.

Sheba and Ophir, King Solomon’s mines, Timbuktu—for centuries the “Dark Continent” of Africa was a land of fabulous, golden legend. The European imagination invested it with great kingdoms and great wealth—a land ruled by a mysterious Christian king, Prester John. In the past two hundred years, however, these glittering legends have been replaced by a far different belief—that Africa is a land without a past, without history; that its peoples have always lived in savagery, in what has been described as “centuries-long stagnation.” The numerous and impressive archeological traces of earlier African civilizations have been ignored or attributed to a lost people. However, the truth is being found in the archeological record. There was a civilization, both highly developed and of purely African origin and character. In reality the great, unknown kingdoms of Punt, and later Kush with its splendid capitol city of Meroë, were advanced African cultures of the upper Nile more than one thousand years before Christ. But the great flowering of African civilization south of the Sahara was medieval: the great kingdoms of Ghana, Mali, and Songhay; the merchant cities of the East African coast, with a thriving Africa-India trade; and the mysterious city-states of the interior, like Zimbabwe and Mapungubwe. THE LOST CITIES OF AFRICA, by Basil Davidson, is a much-needed survey of what is presently known of the African past. It won the 1960 Anisfield-Wolf Award for best book, exposing the ills of racism in creative literature. “This is the first book in any language to provide a survey of Africa in the light of recent archeological discoveries. It is admirably constructed, vivid and compelling.”—Dr. Gervase Mathew
