Demons crave to make mankind a meal, dark mages want to destroy the mage-hood that has been hunting them down for years, and ambitious unholy priests seek to supplement the holy god for an evil unholy one. They all get their chance when a rare double lunar eclipse covers the two moons and casts the lands of men into eerie darkness. Unbeknownst to the priests and mages, it also allows for the darkest of magic to be cast. The dark forces attempt to take advantage and cast evil magic that could bring the dead back to aid them. Racing against time and unholy creatures are a lone priest out of his depth, a couple of mages with young apprentices struggling to survive the dark mage attack, and a strange barbaric warrior who has been trying to die but now he has a reason to live. Together they have to try to convince people of the horrors coming their way and end the threat against their world.

The average value of fresh cut orchids and buds trade during 2007-2012 was US$ 483 million. In 2012, there are more than 40 countries exporting orchids and 60 countries importing orchids around the world, with the total size of the global trade equaling US$ 504 million. In India, about 1350 species belonging to 186 genera represent approximately 5.98% of the world orchid flora and 6.83% of the flowering plants in India.

The prize-winning history of the orchid: “an engaging and enlightening account of one of the Earth's most mythologized botanical wonders” (Richard Conniff, author of House of Lost Worlds). At once delicate, exotic, and elegant, orchids are beloved for their singular, instantly recognizable beauty. Found in nearly every climate, the many species of orchid have had varying forms of significance in countless cultures over time. Following the orchid’s journey from Ancient Greek medicine to twentieth century detective novels, science historian Jim Endersby explores the flower’s four recurring themes: science, empire, sex, and death. Orchids were a symbol of the exotic riches sought by 19th century Europeans in their plans for colonization. They became subjects of scientific scrutiny for Charles Darwin, who investigated their methods of cross-pollination. As Endersby shows, orchids—perhaps because of their extraordinarily diverse colors, shapes, and sizes—have also bloomed repeatedly in films, novels, plays, and poems, from Shakespeare to science fiction. Featuring many gorgeous illustrations from the collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Orchid: A Cultural History was awarded the Watson Davis and Helen Miles Davis Prize by the History of Science Society. It is an enchanting tale not only for gardeners and plant collectors, but anyone curious about the flower’s obsessive hold on the imagination in history, cinema, literature, and more.
