Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit.

Required reading for nursing school, because it is amazing!!!

Make sure you have some punchable object near by so you can dish out your inevitable frustration at the injustices we continue to perpetuate.l. Yet, don’t lose hope because hopelessness is the enemy of justice.

Also this is not a mind blowing philosophically stimulating sci fi.

I loved the descriptive battle scenes in the first book. this one I find myself more interested in the politics then the action.

Finally, I am getting frustrated with how many characters survive chaotic battles. I like them all but more of them need to die to keep me believing in the intensity of the endless mirage of perilous situations.

The legendary battle-carrier UFS Phoenix is on the run in Outer Neutral Space. Lieutenant Commander Erik Debogande and Major Trace Thakur are determined to use neutral territory to broker a peace between humanity's warring factions, away from Fleet's strong arm. But as machinations in Fleet Command send a legendary warrior from Trace's past on a sworn path to kill her, there arises in the territory of an insectoid foe an ancient enemy from the nightmares of Spiral history, bent on Phoenix's destruction….

still fun. a bit unbelievable how many of the characters survive. but thus isn't game of thrones.

As far as a future reality, however, the story arc fits right in line with all the best prophetic sci-fi.

The demon Lailoken, as old as time, is tricked by angelic powers, the Fire Lords, and trapped in a human body. He becomes Merlinus, a wandering wise man expert in magic, destined to work for good among humans, opposed by the Furor, Odin. An encounter with the unicorn - a spirit similarly earthbound - brings him to Ygrane, queen of the Celts, and she sets him a task to find her king, a man seen in vision and fated to be her love-match.

A beautiful journey. Don't give up on it. It often seems like it is going to get boring, but just wait five minutes or have a glass of wine, it will soon pull you back in with awe inspiring force. Lastly, if all religions could adopt the perspectives illustrated in this epic, we would have no foolish fundamentalism.... yet extremely devoted worshippers....

Following up on his well-received first book, Andy Thompson provides another captivating, thought-provoking, and at times intense glimpse into the daily life of a paramedic working in the UK's National Health Service. In the style of his first book, Andy recalls each event from the detailed documentation recorded at the time. Each account is written in a way that puts the listener right there next to him, so you live the events in real time.

If you are a paramedic you should enjoy this but if you are an EMT student this is invaluable information and a great way to remember some of the basic terminology of EMS 105 and 106. I am currently getting my cert in America but everything mentioned in this book is completely relevant.

Thank you Andy and great job Pete I can hardly wait for the next edition of The Dark Side
