Croesus, once the wealthiest man of the ancient world, is to be burned alive.
Enchantment | Helix Waltz Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
As he watches the flames catch, Croesus thinks back over his life. He remembers the time he asked the old Athenian philosopher, Solon, who was the happiest man in the world. Croesus used to think it was him. But then all his riches could not remove the spear from his dying elder son's chest; could not bring his mute younger son to speak; could not make him as wise as his own chief slave; could not bring his wife's love back; could not prevent his army from being torn apart and his kingdom lost.
As the old philosopher had replied, a man's happiness can only be measured when he is dead.

The first coils of smoke wrap around Croesus' neck like a noose War and Peace Leo Tolstoy 0 13 0 Hailed as one of the greatest novels of all time and a classic of world literature, War and Peace is a tale of strivers in a world fraught with conflict, social and political change, and spiritual confusion, Tolstoy's magnificent work continues to entertain, enlighten, and inspire readers around the world. Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, 'War and Peace' is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory.
Badly wounded at Austerlitz, he begins to discover the emptiness of everything to which he has devoted himself. His death scene is considered one of the greatest passages in Russian literature. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon's army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants, to soldiers and Napoleon himself. In War and Peace , Tolstoy entwines grand themes—conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate.

Her new position is nursemaid to Ella, an otherworldly infant. The story of their relationship reveals that nothing is what it seems, that beauty is not always desirable, and that love can take on many guises. This time, Adrian, Tara and her fey brothers get to save the world, not just themselves as they did in book one. Spoiler alert; Dan falls in love with a dancer in a club similar to the Moulin Rouge. Whether she can love him back is the question as she has many admirers! The next book in the series will send Adrian and Tara back in time to 16th Century England, where they will meet Shakespeare and inspire him to write about fairies in his next play.
