[FireHeart - Exploring Worlds of Fantasy] The Emerald Atlas by JohnStephens



The Emerald Atlas is the story of three children who set out to save their family, and end up having to save the world!

Meet Gabriel:
When he was fifteen, Gabriel tracked a seven-hundred-pound black bear that had been terrorizing his village. Using only a knife and wooden spear, he fought the beast in the narrow confines of its cave. The bear left a deep scar down the boy's face-but the boy killed the bear.

Since the Countess's arrival, Gabriel's one goal has been to convince his village they must free the people of Cambridge Falls. He says he will fight the witch's demons alone if necessary. No one doubts him.

He is terrible at small talk. He has no close friends. He does his best not to scare people.

The Dark and Hollow Places
by Carrie Ryan

There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. Now it's all up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

The Hunt of the Unicorn
by C.C. Humphreys

Elayne thinks the old family story that one of her ancestors stepped through a tapestry into a world of mythical beasts makes a great fireside tale. But she lives in the real world—New York City. And she's outgrown that kind of fantasy. Until she finds herself in front of a unicorn tapestry at the Cloisters museum and sees her initials woven into the fabric; hears a unicorn calling to her, and slips and falls into that other world. Suddenly the line between fantasy and reality isn't so clear. But the danger is real enough.

The Door in the Forest
by Roderick Townley

At the mid point of three towns, in the center of three streams, in the heart of a forest, lies a mysterious island. Encircled by quicksand and sewn shut by vines, it is impenetrable to everyone except the poisonous snakes patrolling its waters. But Daniel and Emily are determined to get there. Roderick Townley spins a magical tale of lies and truths, of secrets kept and secrets revealed. Sooner or later, we all must step through the door in the forest.

[vadisworld - my way, my world] Singapore Travel Guide - BJ Vadis'Diary

http://www.yoursingapore.com/content/traveller/id/plan-your-trip/your-singapore-guide.html?userid=294470

Mission: Singapore All-Possible - Don't Wanna Miss a Thing!

As you set your feet in Singapore soil, your adventure begins. Three days, and you got a mission: Get the most out of Singapore and don't miss a thing. With SG Tourist Pass and without a tour guide, enjoy best attracions, sample all Singapore culinary specials and shop 'till you drop!

Day 1: Back to the Future
Take a walk and bus from City Hall to Marina Bay Sands.
Objectives: Raffles Statue (White), Merlion, SkyPark.

Take the bus from your hotel to the city hall and walk all the way of Singapore's proud history from Queen Elizabeth's Walk - Merlion - Esplanade all the way past Fullerton Hotel, get blended in the rush hour, take MRT to Marina Bay & bus to Marina Bay Sands and enjoy the grandeur of the SkyPark. After that, you can go to Orchard Road to Tang's or Lucky Plaza to sample some SG street food, take a walk and then to ION Orchard and take MRT back to your hotel (unless you want to go to ZOUK first).

Day 2: The Pilgrim in Fantasy Lands
Sentosa Resort World & Universal Studios.
Objectives: Alien Cylon Blue Rollercoaster, Crane Dance.

With a public bus or MRT, you'll arrive at VivoCity. Get a spare cash and take the bus to Sentosa Island. In Universal Studios, there are 2 ways to enjoy ALL attractions there:
1. Counter-Clockwise Walk: Take the most exciting ride: Battlestar Galactica rollercoaster first before it gets too crowded.
2. Clockwise Walk: Enjoy all rides and take Battlestar Galactica rollercoaster as finale. It's all up to you.

After enjoying the rides, you can rest in FestiveWalk or go back to VivoCity and back again by bus to Sentosa to watch either Voyage de la Vie, RWS Crane Dance or both in Sentosa Resorts World.

Day 3: Get Wild!
Either Singapore Zoo or Jurong Bird Park, then Chinatown Food Street to Orchard Road & Zouk.
Objectives: 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals (SG Zoo), SG Street Food.

Now there are four "wild things" to get today, seeing animals from the wild, devouring wildly into various kinds of Singapore Street Food: Carrot Cakes, Prawn Hokkien Mee, Katong Blacan and all, shop like wild in Orchard Road and finally get wild in Zouk. What a wild finale of this 3-day mission adventure!

Note that you can use the first day to visit more historical places if you arrive in SG before 1 PM. And if you depart from SG on the third day, you probably want to cut out on the nightly "wild stuff" or move all Orchard and Zouk to the night of the first day.

Well, we can say it was "mission accomplished", you can really enjoy your 3-day visit in Singapore and getting all the best of the city and come back home with fond memories plus a sense of fulfillment from all the objectives you finished - and a longing for another visit to the Fair Singapore.

Additional Tip:


- Plan your journey carefully. Study the city map, MRT and bus route and plan your route according to the areas you want to explore. Example in this guide:
Day 1: Center - South
Day 2: South (Sentosa)
Day 3: North (Northwest or Northeast) - Center

- As soon as you arrive in Singapore and you don't want to hire a local guide, GET A TOURIST PASS! Just buy the 3-day pass in Changi Airport and you will save lots and lots of money and your journey will be most convenient with all the MRTs and buses you can use freely.

- Make sure you visit Universal Studios SG at regular days, not weekends (Sat-Sun) first thing in the morning and you'll know why.
