NEW RELEASE REVIEW!

After the Fire 

By Will Hill

The things I've seen are burned into me, like scars that refuse to fade.

Before, she lived inside the fence. Before, she was never allowed to leave the property, never allowed to talk to Outsiders, never allowed to speak her mind. Because Father John controlled everything—and Father John liked rules. Disobeying Father John came with terrible consequences.

But there are lies behind Father John's words. Outside, there are different truths.

Then came the fire.

The Philosopher's Flight

By Tom Miller

Half Science, Half Magic - Entirely Fantastic

In the tradition of Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness, Tom Miller writes with unrivaled imagination, ambition, and wit. The Philosopher's Flight is both a fantastical reinvention of the 1910s America and a beautifully composed coming-of-age tale for anyone who has ever felt like an outcast.
