As a child, Kissen's family were killed by zealots of a fire god. Now, she makes a living killing gods, and enjoys it. That is until she finds a god she cannot kill: Skedi, a god of white lies, has somehow bound himself to a young noble, and they are both on the run from unknown assassins.

Pursued by demons, and in the midst of burgeoning civil war, they will all face a reckoning - something is rotting at the heart of their world, and only they can be the ones to stop it.

But now Val McDermid drags the truth out of the shadows, exposing the patriarchal prejudices of history. Expect the unexpected. A thousand years ago in an ancient Scottish landscape, a woman is on the run with her three companions - a healer, a weaver and a seer. The men hunting her will kill her - because she is the only one who stands between them and their violent ambition. She is no lady: she is the first queen of Scotland, married to a king called Macbeth.

The place is thick with security cameras and there's a strict nine o'clock curfew, because Glenfarach is the final sanctuary for people who've served their sentences but can't be safely released into the general population. Edward's new boss, DI Victoria Montgomery-Porter, insists they head back to Aberdeen before the approaching blizzards shut everything down, but when an ex-cop-turned-gangster is discovered tortured to death in his bungalow, someone needs to take charge.

Health and fitness are not the same as aesthetics and photogenics. Instead of prioritising how a body looks we need to focus on how it feels and functions. How it works. When we listen to the body, embrace it and nurture it, health and fitness will follow. Merging the expertise of sports research scientist Dr Emma Ross, athletic coach Baz Moffat and NHS doctor Bella Smith, this book champions the non-negotiables when it comes to understanding our health and wellbeing as women, throughout all stages of our lives.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Ross, Dr Emma<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>London : Bantam, 2023.<br />376 pages : illustrations (black and white) ; 24 cm<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Average rating: </span><span style="vertical-align: middle;"><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /></span> (1 review)<br /><br />Ardler Library - (Dundee) - Adult Non-fiction - 613.0424 - Available - C01303475X<br /> The square / Celia Walden. https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=3416535&CF=BIB&ISGLB=0 Addison Square is one of the most desirable addresses in London.

I've been transitioning for 12 years now after realising I was trans (by accident!) at sixteen years old. I knew I was a boy since the age of four, but realised whilst growing up that I was different. It was only in my teens that I found the words to express who I was and what I needed to do. Since then, I've been on testosterone for more than a decade - I know, I can't believe it either - I've also had top and bottom surgery and legally changed my sex, so I know a few things about the transitioning process and being trans! I want to welcome you to 'The T in LGBT' where you can explore and learn about so many topics surrounding gender identity: realising you're trans, starting hormones, considering surgery, and everything in between.

Railing against the vice and avarice of the ruling Medici family, he was instrumental in their removal from power, and for a time became the puritanical leader of the city. After turning his attention to corruption in the entire Catholic Church, he was first excommunicated and then executed by a combination of hanging and being burnt at the stake.<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Author: </span>Mina, Denise<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Published: </span>Edinburgh : Polygon, 2023.<br />128 pages ; 20 cm<br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Average rating: </span><span style="vertical-align: middle;"><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-star.gif" alt="★" /><img style="margin:0;" src="https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/gifs/small-blankstar.gif" alt="☆" /></span> (1 review)<br /><br />Broughty Ferry Library - (Dundee) - Adult Fiction - Scottish Collection - Onloan - Due: 24 Jul 2024 - C01105777X<br />Leisure Reading Centre - (Dundee) - Adult Fiction - Scottish Collection - Available - C01105133X<br /> The figurine / Victoria Hislop. https://dundee.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/WPAC/BIBENQ?SETLVL=&BRN=3574363&CF=BIB&ISGLB=0 Of all the ancient art that captures the imagination, none is more appealing than the Cycladic figurine. An air of mystery swirls around these statuettes from the Bronze Age and they are highly sought after by collectors - and looters - alike. When Helena inherits her grandparents' apartment in Athens, she is overwhelmed with memories of the summers she spent there as a child, when Greece was under a brutal military dictatorship. Her remote, cruel grandfather was one of the regime's generals and as she sifts through the dusty rooms, Helena discovers an array of valuable objects and antiquities. How did her grandfather amass such a trove? What human price was paid for them? Her desire to find answers about her heritage dovetails with a growing curiosity for archaeology, ignited by a summer spent with volunteers on a dig on an Aegean island.

The Farrow women are known for their thriving flower farm - and the mysterious curse that has haunted them for generations. The madness that led to Susanna Farrow's disappearance left her daughter, June, to be raised by her grandmother. Everyone in Jasper is certain it's only a matter of time before she finds the same end, but June has kept secret that her unravelling has already begun. After her grandmother's death, June follows a series of clues that link her mother's disappearance to the town's dark history, leading finally to a mysterious door. Behind it may lay the answer to the mysteries that have always lingered like a dark shadow. Upon crossing the threshold, June embarks on a journey that will not only change both the past and the future, but entangle her fate and her heart in a star-crossed love.
