THORNS AND FIRE
The shadows of the Sith have fallen upon the galaxy. With the destruction of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the dissolution of the Jedi Order, Palpatine’s plot to transform the Republic into the Galactic Empire is complete.
Even as the Emperor continues his campaign against the survivors of Order 66, Darth Sidious secretly fears the existence of a creation of his own making from the labs of NIMH—mice and rats that he has made attuned to the FORCE itself.
In the midst of the Emperor’s schemes to retrieve and corrupt the animals, a young field mouse, who has had previous dealings with the experiment, is about to stumble into the chaos and uncover terrible secrets that could tear her family apart...

Once the last of the Giger had mopped up in his sector, Commander Brody now had to get up to the task of reestablishing communications with the bridge.

There are all kinds of stories in the boy's bedroom that have been read; stories of knights battling dragons and saving entire kingdoms; silly and vain princesses who go through series of unfortunate events in order to learn sense; adventurers seeking ancient treasures and must evade his enemies to protect; or a farm boy who must travel to rescue a young girl and defeat a villain and his evil empire.
There is one problem; he has heard almost all of these stories and the parent cannot find a story the son has not heard of before- unless he wants to hear it again- he won't be happy and will reject the choice of book.
Searching frantically, the parent finally finds what she is l
I am an inexperienced artist in drawing. I know there are rules in art about perspective, color, shading, and lighting. But I need help in how to hold the pencil correctly, how to move it, just that.
