Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different--and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an outself. He grew up in the rambling old house, filled with dozens of cousins and aunts and uncles, all ruled by his father. Their home, isolated in the mountains of western Virginia, holds many secrets, and many rules. There is a secret library with only a few dozen books, and Danny and his cousins are expected to become fluent in their strange language. While Danny's cousins are always free to create magic, they must never do it where outsiders might see. Unfortunately, secrets are kept from Danny as well. And that will lead to disaster

13 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by veteran journalists, this is the inside story of how President Bush took the nation to war using faulty and fraudulent intelligence. It takes us behind the scenes at the Bush White House, the CIA, the Pentagon, the State Department, and Congress to answer all the vital questions about how the Bush administration came to invade Iraq. Filled with new revelations, Hubris is a narrative of intrigue that connects the dots between George W. Bush's expletive-laden outbursts at Saddam Hussein, the bitter battles between the CIA and the White House, the fights within the intelligence community over Saddam's weapons of mass destruction, the startling influence of an obscure academic on top government officials, the real reason Valerie Plame was outed, and a top reporter's ties to wily Iraqi exiles trying to start a war.--From publisher description
