I got hit yesterday with the worst cold in the WORLD. It actually was pretty average with classic symptoms of stuffy head, sniffling, and sneezing. Pretty boring really, but super convenient. I know I got it from my oldest son, and his was only really bad for one day. By the second day it was completely tolerable. I say it’s convenient because we are very busy this weekend and I need to be over it all by Friday afternoon at the latest. Since the timing is so perfect I really don’t mind that my head feels like it is about to explode at any moment. I knew I was going to get sick the first time my oldest sneezed. I could have avoided the whole thing if I just didn’t hug him and give him snuggles. As you can see by the use of the word snuggles, there was no way I was going to avoid it. I am positive I am going to be one of those moms that still uses all the pet names when my children are fifty years old. Today I am looking forward to being on the better end of this cold, so I can get to work packing for the weekend. C’mon cold…stick to the timeline. I got things to do.

Sometimes the world isn’t ready for the truth…
Will Leonhardt, a solitary ex-Air Force pilot and combat veteran, receives a mysterious letter and a prepaid plane ticket summoning him to an obscure observatory in Hawaii. So begins a journey that will lead him to a shadowy group of rogue scientists known as the Terra Program. Desperate for a distraction from his own past and future, Will agrees to pilot the program’s flight to the moon. The groundbreaking scientific experiment he and the other astronauts will perform there could change humanity’s understanding of itself and the planet forever, but first they must undergo months of intense training at the program’s secret facility.

As Will gets to know the program’s personnel — from the arthritic, chess-playing astronomer, Doctor Whitfield, to the beautiful young botanist, Sage Galloway — he begins reluctantly to experience what he has never known before: friendship… and even love. But as launch day draws near, it becomes increasingly clear that all is not as it seems and a hidden enemy threatens the mission and the lives of everyone involved. Now, Will must utilize all his training and stoic courage to save the lives of the people he has come to care for and uncover the secret at the heart of the Terra Program… and at the heart of the universe itself.

The Skystillers is a literary conspiracy thriller that combines elements of science fiction with action, mystery, and philosophical inquiry. A compelling story of danger, intrigue, and cosmology conspiracy, the novel also explores the implications of what we believe about ourselves and our place in the universe and how scientific questions can impact human life.

The Knights Templar: The True and Surprising Story Of Histories Most Secretive Order
by Patrick Auerbach
4.1 Stars (61 Reviews)
Genre: History

FREE for a limited time

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown.

The order of the Knights Templar was founded by Hugh de Payens, a French nobleman from the Champagne region, along with eight of his companions, in Jerusalem around 1119.

They originally consisted of a group of knights who protected Christian pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land against attack from brigands and Saracen pirates, after the crusaders captured Jerusalem in 1099.

The order’s full name was the “Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon”.

They were given quarters next to the temple and adopted their distinctive uniform – white tunics with an eight-pointed blood-red cross.

In 1129 they took monastic vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and pledged themselves ready to die for their faith.

They were gradually transformed into a chivalric order of warrior-monks who fought with distinction in the Crusades.
