Vampire, Werwölfe, Geister, Dämonen, Chimären und einer der gefährlichsten Teufel der Welt. Sie alle bewegen sich im Zwielicht der Sterblichen. Allerdings wissen diese nichts von ihrer gefährlichen Existenz. Wie können die Menschen auch weiterhin überleben, wenn es solche Wesen auf ihrem blauen Planeten gibt? Die Antwort ist einfach: Die legendären und unbesiegbaren Monsterjäger beschützen die Schwachen und die Unschuldigen im Auftrag des Vatikan und des Heiligen Vaters. Sie sind ungeschlagene Vampire und können alles töten, doch dann entsteigt ein uralter, schon vergessener Feind den Mauern des Vatikans. Der Vampir Angel, der Anführer der Monsterjäger, versucht alles, um ihn zu besiegen. Allerdings kommt auch für ein solches Wesen der Zeitpunkt, an dem er auf einen unüberwindbaren Feind stößt. Aber wenn diese Beschützer nicht helfen können, was wird dann aus ihren Schützlingen? Eine fesselnde, abenteuerliche, blutige und gefährliche Reisen in die Zukunft, Vergangenheit und in die Gegenwart beginnt. Sie führt uns vom traditionellen Japan, ins dunkle Rumänien über das heilige Italien bis hin in das stolze Deutschland und in das sagenumwobene Märchenschloss Neuschwanstein.

A vandalized burial in an abandoned pioneer cemetery brings 12-year-old Peggy Henderson and her elderly archaeologist friend Eddy to Golden, British Columbia, to excavate. The town dates back to the 1880s when most of the citizens were tough and rowdy miners and railway workers who rarely died of old age. Since the wooden burial markers disintegrated long ago, Peggy and Eddy have no way of knowing the dead mans identity. But when Eddy discovers the vertebrae at the base of the skull are crushed, a sure sign the cause of death was hanging, they have their first clue. Peggy’s tendency to make quick judgments about others leads her to the conclusion that only bad people are hanged, so the man in the burial must have gotten what he deserved. Hoping to learn more about him that proves her beliefs, she is soon digging through dusty old newspapers at the small-town museum. It’s there that Peggy learns that sometimes good people do bad things.

The editors, along with 15 outstanding contributors, comprehensively explore and provide an overview of the principles behind the interpretation of skeletal blunt force trauma. This expanded second edition provides a discussion on how to train for a career in forensic anthropology and offers guidance on how to complete a thorough trauma analysis. It also provides the labels given to different kinds of fractures and the biomechanical forces required to cause bone to fail and fracture. The text provides a theoretical framework for both evaluating published trauma studies and designing new ones. Experimental trauma research is an area ripe for research, and criteria to consider in choosing which non-human species to use in an actualistic study are offered. Common circumstances in which blunt force trauma is encountered are described. Information is provided on a variety of causes of death due to blunt force trauma. These causes range from accidental deaths to homicides due to blunt force from motor vehicle accidents, falls, strangulation, child and elder abuse, among others. Epidemiological information on whom is most likely affected by these various kinds of blunt force trauma is drawn from both the clinical and forensic literature. The most fundamental elements of the text are offered in four chapters where, bone by bone, fracture by fracture, the authors describe what to call each kind of fracture, what is known about how much force is required to break the bone that way, and fracture specific epidemiological information. This particular section of the text provides an invaluable reference source for forensic anthropologists and other osteologists to consult when looking at and trying to classify a bone fracture. Case studies are included to bring the book full circle back to considering the micro and macro bone changes that are seen when bone fails and fractures. The case studies are illustrative both of the concepts described through the book and of the high quality analyses forensic anthropologists contribute to medicolegal investigations of death every day. The text is further enhanced by 150 illustrations, some in color. This completely updated and expanded new volume is an essential reference for the forensic anthropology professional.

Dancing with Broken Bones provides a chilling portrait of what it is like to die while living in urban poverty. Via interviews with patients and their families as well as powerful photographs, the author demonstrates that a complex array of factors shape the experience of dying poor in the inner city: mistrust of physicians; inadequate communication among providers, patients, and families; a sense of alienation within the bureaucratic maze of the public hospital system; and indignities in care. By demystifying the stereotypes surrounding poverty, the book illuminates how faith and an unassailable spirit provide strength and courage throughout the end of life experience. Dancing with Broken Bones is a rallying call for compassionate individuals everywhere to understand and respond to the needs of the especially vulnerable people who comprise the world of inner-city dying poor.

Dancing with Broken Bones gives voice and face to a vulnerable and disempowered population whose stories often remain untold: the urban dying poor. Drawing on complex issues surrounding poverty, class, and race, Moller illuminates the unique sufferings that often remain unknown and hidden within a culture of broad invisibility. He demonstrates how a complex array of factors, such as mistrust of physicians, regrettable indignities in care, and inadequate communication among providers, patients, and families, shape the experience of the dying poor in the inner city. This book challenges readers to look at reality in a different way. Demystifying stereotypes that surround poverty, Moller illuminates how faith, remarkable optimism, and an unassailable spirit provide strength and courage to the dying poor. Dancing with Broken Bones serves as a rallying call for compassionate individuals everywhere to understand and respond to the needs of the especially vulnerable, yet inspiring, people who comprise the world of the inner city dying poor.

Broken Bones is the heartbreaking and ultimately inspiring tale of a young man’s battle with anorexia, of his fight with not only his own inner demons but with the inhumanity of the mental health system itself. With shades of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Baker brings the reader into the cold concrete of an eating disorder ward, ferrying him through a month of constant observation, brutal rigidity, and rationed showers, of drug-clouded nights and mornings of cold eggs and watered-down coffee. In such an oppressive environment, an institution where those tasked with making the inpatients whole don’t even see them as people; small victories evolve into epic celebrations and minor setbacks become soul-crushing defeats.

Dan Tolliver, the adopted son of Alpha pack leader Jeremiah Tolliver, has suffered his last moment of abuse by his lover Keith Mulligan and finds himself in the hospital. There he meets dark and sharp-tongued Dr. Aiden Kavanaugh, who believes Dan needs some of his straightforward kind of medicine. Still, there is something different about the doctor. Aiden is a sandman, a weaver of dreams, and has been on Earth far longer than even he knows. He's at the end of his time, ready to transition, and needs a human mate to keep him connected to the world he's grown to love. Only he hasn't found a special person who makes him want to stay. He doesn't despair, because not every Sandman has the chance to choose, but he knows if he doesn't find a partner, he will soon lose his physical form and exist only in dreams. When Aiden realizes Keith is a far greater monster than Dan has any idea, they grow and work together using the support of the pack―and Dan's inner strength―to overcome impossible odds.
