BOOK EXCERPT:

Longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction July, 1830. On the ten-hour sail west from the Hebrides to the islands of St. Kilda, everything lies ahead for Lizzie and Neil McKenzie. Neil is to become the minister to the small community of islanders, and Lizzie, his new wife, is pregnant with their first child. As the two adjust to life on an exposed archipelago on the edge of civilization, where the natives live in squalor and subsist on a diet of seabirds, and babies perish mysteriously in their first week, their marriage -- and their sanity -- is threatened. Is Lizzie a wilful temptress drawing him away from his faith? Is Neil’s zealous Christianity unhinging into madness? And who, or what, is haunting the moors and cliff-tops? Exquisitely written and profoundly moving, Island of Wings is a richly imagined novel about two people struggling to keep their love, and their family, alive in a place of terrible hardship and tumultuous beauty.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In this riveting, keenly emotional debut fantasy, a Black teen from Houston has her world upended when she learns about her godly ancestry and must save both the human and god worlds. Perfect for fans of Angie Thomas, Tomi Adeyemi, and The Hunger Games! “Make a way out of no way” is just the way of life for Rue. But when her mother is shot dead on her doorstep, life for her and her younger sister changes forever. Rue's taken from her neighborhood by the father she never knew, forced to leave her little sister behind, and whisked away to Ghizon—a hidden island of magic wielders. Rue is the only half-god, half-human there, where leaders protect their magical powers at all costs and thrive on human suffering. Miserable and desperate to see her sister on the anniversary of their mother’s death, Rue breaks Ghizon’s sacred Do Not Leave Law and returns to Houston, only to discover that Black kids are being forced into crime and violence. And her sister, Tasha, is in danger of falling sway to the very forces that claimed their mother’s life. Worse still, evidence mounts that the evil plaguing East Row is the same one that lurks in Ghizon—an evil that will stop at nothing until it has stolen everything from her and everyone she loves. Rue must embrace her true identity and wield the full magnitude of her ancestors’ power to save her neighborhood before the gods burn it to the ground.

BOOK EXCERPT:

GRACE’S GRANDMOTHER HAS died, and she and her mother must travel back to the Cambodian community to give her a proper Cambodian funeral. But Grace wants to use the trip to solve a few mysteries, like who her father was, why her mother and grandmother moved from St. Petersburg to Pennsylvania, where they’re the only Cambodians Grace has ever seen, and what Cambodian culture is really about. Embraced by her mother’s old friends, Grace feels both at home and lost, fascinated by the traditions she’s never known, but strangely judged by some members of the community. Can she make sense of, and honor, the life of the grandmother she barely knew? And will revelations about the past bring Grace closer to her mother, or push them even further apart? From the Hardcover edition.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Despite our vast knowledge of the world, still no atlas or globe is complete. Not every island has been mapped. A young man takes to the skies on Flight 1726 on a day unlike every other, little anticipating the experiences that for him lay in wait. After surviving a plane crash in the ocean, Cygnus is marooned on an unknown island populated by a contemptuous race of horses that enslaves a tribe of feral humans. Then a draconian decision leads to subsequent encounters with the immortals of Loogenage, the magicians of Glubdubdrib, the anti-intellectuals of Balnibarbi, the giants of Brobadingog, and the tiny emulous nations of Blafusecho, Sinrovia, and Lilliput. His diverse experiences gift him with enlightenment and culminate in a heart-wrenching conclusion. Based on the world created by Jonathan Swift three hundred years ago, On Swift Wings is a modern satire that lampoons contemporary life and dogma in the same sardonic style as the original Swift masterpiece. Swathed in stunningly painted worlds, it is a study of current society that contains within it both the truth and the hope we so desperately need.
