It’s not easy being the youngest of seven sons in a family of notorious sorcerers, especially for Ayden Dracre. In a world where sorcerers practice only dark magic and wizards practice only light magic, Ayden has a problem: He is very bad at being bad. Try as he might, all of his spells to cause mayhem go awry. When he finds out that his family has had enough of his mistakes, he decides to take destiny into his own hands.

He's the seventh son of a seventh son and is supposed to be a badass sorcerer.Unfornunately,he is too kind and blonde to be a proper sorcerer.He knows his mother wants him dead,so he leaves and so his quest begins.This is an awesome first book in a promising series.

It is always an event when Tom publishes a new book and this one is definitely no exception. In this chilling volume of more than 30 chapters - with many chapters containing more than one story - you will meet the Faceless Bride of Lime Street and you will also be introduced to Anfield’s unknown ghostly woman before visiting the creepy establishment known as The Devil’s Arms, where everything is just too good to be true. You will not find the usual hackneyed stories of supernatural cliché in this volume.

How did Iran get to where it is today, at the forefront of global affairs? The history of Iran and the theme of Persian conflict with the West stretches back thousands of years, and it is a unique history of empire, culture, art, pride, and religious nationalism. The History of Iran from Ancient Persia to the Ayatollahs comprehensively and descriptively covers this history, progressing through a timeline dating back to antiquity and examining all of the different religious, political, foreign, and military issues that affect Iran and are affected by Iran today.
