Inside this Book – It was well known that the Universe, as well as life, revolves in a circle. On the rim of this circle, in pairs exactly opposite each other are eight magic points, which give a full rotation, the annual cycle. These points, lying along the rim of the circle in pairs opposite each other, are: Imbaelk that is, Germination, Lammas that is, Maturity, Belleteyn, that is Blossoming, Saovine that is, Withering. The rim of the circle is also marked by two solstices – winter or Midinvaerne and summer or Midaete. There are also two equinoxes – spring or Birke and autumn or Velen. These dates divide the circle into eight parts – and so the elven calendar year is divided. When Humans landed in the estuary of the Yaruga and the delta of the Pontar, they brought with them their own lunar calendar, dividing the year into twelve months – which cover the full annual cycle of work in the fields – from the beginning of January until the end – in which frost turned the earth into a hard lump. But although humans divided the year and counted the date differently, they accepted the elven circle and the eight points: Imbaelk, Lammas, Belleteyn, Saovine and both solstices and equinoxes and among the humans they became important holidays. Distinguishing themselves among other dates as much as a solitary tree standing out in a meadow.
Inside this book –The Tower of the Swallow PDF Book by Andrzej Sapkowski – The west wind ushered in a night-time thunderstorm. The purple-black sky cracked with lines of lightning and exploded with persistent rumbles of thunder. A downpour began, pelting the dusty road, roofs, and dirt smeared windows with drops as thick as oil. The strong wind continued and soon drove the rain and the storm somewhere far beyond the lightning blazing horizon. And then the dogs started barking. Hooves were drumming, weapons rattling. A wild hooting and whistling woke the sleeping villagers, making their hair stand on end. They jumped up hastily and locked doors and windows with iron bars. Sweaty hands clutched axes and pitchfork handles. They clasped them firmly. And yet helplessly. Terror, terror was flying through the village. Hunters or the hunted? Cruel and insane with rage or fear? Will they dash through without slowing the horses? Or will the night be illuminated with the light of burning thatch and fire? Hush, hush, child… Mama, are they demons? Is this the Wild Hunt? Spectres from hell? Mama, Mama! Peace, peace, children. These are not demons, not devils. Worse. They are people. The dogs barked. A gale was blowing. Horses whinnied and horseshoes pounded.
