"It was far too large for a newborn. Its head was covered with coarse black hair, and its body was red and blotchy. And on each hand there were six perfectly formed fingers. The baby peered down at her with cruel, intelligent eyes, and when it smiled she saw two rows of tiny teeth." So this was how the god had answered my prayers, "Myrfel thought. This child he had given her was to be the instrument of her revenge." The second book in the Invisible War series, "The Day of the Others" chronicles the in-between years of the Creation account and the Flood. When Tubal Cain discovers metalworking, human society begins to change, creating new opportunities for the ranks of demons who masquerade as humankind's gods to prey on humanity's growing depravity. Through the stories of Tubal Cain, Enoch, and other fascinating characters, "The Day of the Others" describes the societal advances that lead to the evolution of a unique civilization marked by material progress and spiritual decline. But when demons mate with human women and produce giants known as Nephilim, angels intervene, and the whole world rushes toward a cataclysmic judgment that will change the face of the planet.

In this first of six novels about the Invisible War, Dr. Larry Richards reveals the origins of the war and the roots of the continuing struggle involving spirit beings and humans. While this warfare is invisible to mortal eyes, it has a deadly impact on human history as well as on our lives today. Led by the powerful angel Lucifer a third of the angels rebel against the Creator. Satan and his followers are transformed into demons and given control of Earth. Eons later the Creator decimates the planet and the living creatures Satan has corrupted. The Creator reshapes Earth and places the first humans in Eden, where Satan's throne had once pierced the heavens. Convinced that the Creator intends to use the humans against him in the war, Satan sets events in motion that have a deadly impact on the human race. But when demons mate with human women and produce giants called Nephelim, they cross a line established by the Creator. The guilty demons are hunted down, and a corrupt human society rushes toward a devastating judgment.

After the conquest of Mexico, colonial authorities attempted to enforce Christian beliefs among indigenous peoples—a project they envisioned as spiritual warfare. The Invisible War assesses this immense but dislocated project by examining all known efforts in Central Mexico to obliterate native devotions of Mesoamerican origin between the 1530s and the late eighteenth century. The author's innovative interpretation of these efforts is punctuated by three events: the creation of an Inquisition tribunal in Mexico in 1571; the native rebellion of Tehuantepec in 1660; and the emergence of eerily modern strategies for isolating idolaters, teaching Spanish to natives, and obtaining medical proof of sorcery from the 1720s onwards. Rather than depicting native devotions solely from the viewpoint of their colonial codifiers, this book rescues indigenous perspectives on their own beliefs. This is achieved by an analysis of previously unknown or rare ritual texts that circulated in secrecy in Nahua and Zapotec communities through an astute appropriation of European literacy. Tavárez contends that native responses gave rise to a colonial archipelago of faith in which local cosmologies merged insights from Mesoamerican and European beliefs. In the end, idolatry eradication inspired distinct reactions: while Nahua responses focused on epistemological dissent against Christianity, Zapotec strategies privileged confrontations in defense of native cosmologies.

Librarian spy Irene and her apprentice Kai return for another “tremendously fun, rip-roaring adventure,” (A Fantastical Librarian) third in the bibliophilic fantasy series from the author of The Masked City. Never judge a book by its cover... Due to her involvement in an unfortunate set of mishaps between the dragons and the Fae, Librarian spy Irene is stuck on probation, doing what should be simple fetch-and-retrieve projects for the mysterious Library. But trouble has a tendency to find both Irene and her apprentice, Kai—a dragon prince—and, before they know it, they are entangled in more danger than they can handle... Irene’s longtime nemesis, Alberich, has once again been making waves across multiple worlds, and, this time, his goals are much larger than obtaining a single book or wreaking vengeance upon a single Librarian. He aims to destroy the entire Library—and make sure Irene goes down with it. With so much at stake, Irene will need every tool at her disposal to stay alive. But even as she draws her allies close around her, the greatest danger might be lurking from somewhere close—someone she never expected to betray her... From the Trade Paperback edition.
