Prince Philip: The Turbulent Early Life of the Man Who Married Queen Elizabeth II by Philip EadeBefore he met the young girl who became Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip had a tumultuous upbringing in Greece, France, Nazi Germany, and Britain. His mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, was born deaf; she was committed to a psychiatric clinic when Philip was eight. His father, Prince Andrew of Greece, already traumatized by his exile from his home country, promptly shut up the family home and went off to live with his mistress, effectively leaving his young son an orphan.
Remarkably, Philip emerged from his difficult childhood a character of singular vitality and dash—self-confident, opinionated, and devastatingly handsome. Girls fell at his feet, and the princess who would become his wife was smitten from the age of thirteen. Yet alongside his considerable charm and intelligence, the young prince was also prone to volcanic outbursts, which would have profound consequences for his family and the future of the monarchy.
In this authoritative and wonderfully compelling book, acclaimed biographer Philip Eade brings to vivid life the storm-tossed early years of one of the most fascinating and mysterious members of the royal family.
A Court of Wings and Ruin
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all. What a fabulous series! There's plenty of action along the way as Feyre and Rhys battle and scheme to use every advantage against the evil king's magic and greater forces. Many of the characters from the first two books reappear here, some to reap their rewards and some to sacrifice for the greater good.
Not just for what he'd done for Rhys, but On feeling it and putting it into the world. So I wished him well -- I truly did, and hoped that one day One day, perhaps he would face those insidious fears, that destructive rage rotting away inside him.
