Adara is the main character of this sci-fantasy sword and sorcery adventure with plenty of attitude and action. With sword in hand, our larger than life heroine of the pre-flood world is befriended by an Atlantean king whose once glorious kingdom is beseeched by a horde of invaders from across the eastern sea from the hostile land laying waste of this last salvation of hope in the decaying world controlled by the fallen watchers, whose Red Priests would stop at nothing to get control of mans last haven against the hordes of barbarians and dragons from the east. In this epic good vs. evil Adara and her friends fight the host of ships, weapons, Red Priests, giant orcs, dragons, seabeasts and invading hordes. She puts her famous black metal, ancient arts of war, Amazonian skills to an inhuman test in this action packed trilogy about the Nephilim and their secret plan to create a race of Nephilim born giants to take all of mans possessions and their daughters and to devour man himself. In her sandled feet and black sword the Amazon princess will meet her enemies head-on in the fight of her life using all the skill the dark jungles of the third age can muster. A female warrior as big as Hercules or Achilles, is a story of a forgotten age that needs to be told. The first two tales are put together so that the reader may enjoy her tales to the fullest and leaving the reader to wait for the last tale leaving the avid sci-fiction fantasy fan wanting more.

This book is the first to provide strategies for effective advocacy and placement within the foster care and kinship care systems. It also takes a rare look at the dynamics of the foster and kinship relationship, not just among children and the agency workers and service providers who intervene on their behalf, but also between children and those who take in and care for them as permanency develops. Drawing on their experience interacting with and writing about the institution of foster care, Mitchell Rosenwald and Beth N. Riley have composed a unique text that helps practitioners, foster parents, and relative caregivers realize successful transitions for youth, especially considering the traumas these children may suffer both before and after placement. Advocating for a child's best interests must begin early and remain consistent throughout assignment and adjustment. For practitioners, Rosenwald and Riley emphasize the best techniques for assessing a family's capabilities and for guiding families through the challenges of foster care. Part one details the steps potential foster parents and kinship caregivers must take, with the assistance of practitioners, to prepare themselves for placement. Part two describes tactics for successful advocacy within the court system, social service agencies, schools, and the medical and mental health establishments. Part three describes how to lobby for change at the agency and legislative levels, as well as within a given community. The authors illustrate recommendations through real-life scenarios and devote an entire chapter to brokering positive partnerships among practitioners, families, and other teams working to protect and transition children.
