As the Third Age came to a bloody close, one of the first victims of the brutal march of the Shadow's armies across Eredane was the city of Highwall. Since the First Age, the city and its Scholar's Academy stood as a beacon of hope and enlightenment in a darkening world. That shining beacon was shattered seemingly overnight as the fury of the Shadow in the North descended on the world. Now, a hundred years later, the city of Highwall lies in ruin. At the center of this desolation rises Theros Obsidia, a black tower of impossible size that was magicked from the earth and stone like a splinter drawn from flesh. This is the locus of Izrador's power in Eredane and the fortress of his legates, the Order of Shadow. Huddled around the tower are the camps and garrisons of the Shadow's hordes, along with the ruins and hovels of the city's survivors. Highwall has become a place of death and darkness, and only the bravest, most follhardy, or most desperate heroes dare to intrude into the heart of Shadow. City of Shadow offers detailed information on the ruined and occupied city of Highwall, a level-by-level description of Theros Obsidia complete with beautiful maps and illustrations, and in-depth information on the Order of Shadow. Requires the use of the Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook, published by Wizards of the Coast, Inc. This product utilizes updated material from the v.3.5 revision.
In this authoritative volume, race and ethnicity are themselves considered as central organizing principles in why, how, where and by whom crimes are committed and enforced. The contributors argue that dimensions of race and ethnicity condition the very laws that make certain behaviors criminal, the perception of crime and those who are criminalized, the determination of who becomes a victim of crime under which circumstances, the responses to laws and crime that make some more likely to be defined as criminal, and the ways that individuals and communities are positioned and empowered to respond to crime.

"Não escolhemos o amor, é ele quem nos escolhe. Mas, e se essa escolha estiver errada? A vida de Lucas já começou com problemas: foi abandonado em um orfanato quando tinha apenas dois anos. Sofreu a dor da rejeição e da solidão até que, em um magnífico natal, quando completava nove anos, Papai Noel lhe trouxe de presente pais maravilhosos: Levi e Heloísa. Ambos o adotaram, casaram-se e tiveram uma menina tão doce que fez Lucas escolher o seu nome: Mel. Uma família perfeita foi construída com bases sólidas. No entanto, depois de anos convivendo em um clima familiar acolhedor, o surgimento de um amor incomum abala o mundo de Lucas. Ele percebe que alguma coisa importante mudou a ponto de não conseguir ver sua irmã mais nova com os mesmos olhos. De menina doce, Mel se torna uma mulher interessante, fato que Lucas não consegue ignorar. Diante das variadas fases deste sentimento, entre elas a negação, a revolta e a culpa, Lucas tenta sobreviver em meio à dor do amor proibido e, o mais importante: tenta jamais prejudicar a sua família por causa dele." Polêmico, forte, sensível, surpreendente.
Palavras distintas para um único sentimento, amor. Uma história bem contada que vai te arrebatar do começo ao fim. (Paula Pilar) Um amor proibido e arrebatador, que me fez pensar em dois possíveis finais, mas claro que Mila me surpreendeu, como sempre. Um romance lindo, emocionante, que me arrancou lágrimas e massacrou meu coração de ansiedade. Sempre recomendo qualquer coisa que Wander escreva. (Josy Stoque)
