What if you could possess impossible powers that defy every law known to man concerning time, space, and reality using only the raw fuel of your normal everyday emotions? Ellie Kaehill can. It's 2177. The Rurals of the N.U.S., a war ravaged and resource poor America that scrapes by every day on the meager charities of its government, is the only world Ellie and her family have ever known. But as her seventeenth birthday quickly approaches, Ellie dreams of a better life in the city of New Columbia by studying at the academies, a privilege that can only be obtained by passing the Trials, a mysterious set of tests designed to identify the most special and exceptional students to be allowed a chance at higher learning in the city beyond the Layer. It's only after arriving in New Columbia, at the Carivealli Academy for Psychosomatic Manifestation, that Ellie discovers the powerful psychic abilities that have existed inside of her this entire time. But that knowledge and power won't come without a price. While learning about her new found abilities, in a strange place where it's difficult to discern friend from foe, Ellie must now focus her efforts on the even greater tests of The Crucible and The Box. Navigating the politics of fear in a city where control is the only real law and keeping one step ahead of the people that never want her to graduate, Ellie will need all her wits, strength, and abilities if she ever wants to step out from the looming shadow of the "The Disappearing Girl" and leave New Columbia alive.

Britannia, 117 AD Primitive, cold, and a touch damp Welcome to the most remote corner of the Roman Empire For army doctor Gaius Petreius Ruso, this overseas posting is no picnic. He has vast debts, a slave girl too clever for her own good and an overbearing hospital administrator to cope with ... not to mention a serial killer stalking the local bar. Washed-out dancing girls are being washed-up with the tide and everyone expects Ruso to investigate, even though the breakthroughs of forensic science lie centuries in the future. Will the gods smile on him before he too falls prey to the murderer? If only it were possible to find a good Falernian wine in Britannia, life would seem so much rosier – and perhaps the locals might stop killing each other ...

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Best Books of 2018 Two-time Edgar Award-winning author Lori Roy spins a twisted, atmospheric tale about a small Southern town where girls disappear and boys run away. When Lane Fielding fled her isolated Florida hometown after high school for the anonymity of New York City, she swore she'd never return. But twenty years later, newly divorced and with two daughters in tow, she finds herself tending bar at the local dive and living with her parents on the historic Fielding Plantation. Here, the past haunts her and the sinister crimes of her father--the former director of an infamous boys' school--make her as unwelcome in town as she was the day she left. Ostracized by the people she was taught to trust, Lane's unsteady truce with the town is rattled when her older daughter suddenly vanishes. Ten days earlier, a college student went missing, and the two disappearances at first ignite fears that a serial killer who once preyed upon the town has returned. But when Lane's younger daughter admits to having made a new and unseemly friend, a desperate Lane attacks her hometown's façade to discover whether her daughter's disappearance is payback for her father's crimes--or for her own. With reporters descending upon the town, police combing through the swamp, and events taking increasingly disturbing turns, Lane fears she faces too many enemies and too little time to bring her daughter safely home. Powerful and heart-pounding, The Disappearing questions the endurance of family bonds, the dangers of dark rumors and small town gossip, and how sometimes home is the scariest place of all.

Drawing from the magical world of her iconic Sundance award-winning film, Julie Dash’s stand-alone novel tells another rich, historical tale of the Gullah-Geechee people: a multigenerational story about a Brooklyn College anthropology student who finds an unexpected homecoming when she heads to the South Carolina Sea Islands to study her ancestors. Set in the 1920s in the Sea Islands off the Carolina coast where the Gullah-Geechee people have preserved much of their African heritage and language, Daughters of the Dust chronicles the lives of the Peazants, a large, proud family who trace their origins to the Ibo, who were enslaved and brought to the islands more than one hundred years earlier. Native New Yorker and anthropology student Amelia Peazant has always known about her grandmother and mother’s homeland of Dawtuh Island, though she’s never understood why her family remains there, cut off from modern society. But when an opportunity arises for Amelia to head to the island to study her ancestry for her thesis, she is surprised by what she discovers. From her multigenerational clan she gathers colorful stories, learning about "the first man and woman," the slaves who walked across the water back home to Africa, the ways men and women need each other, and the intermingling of African and Native American cultures. The more she learns, the more Amelia comes to treasure her family and their traditions, discovering an especially strong kinship with her fiercely independent cousin, Elizabeth. Eyes opened to an entirely new world, Amelia must decide what’s next for her and find her role in the powerful legacy of her people. Daughters of the Dust is a vivid novel that blends folktales, history, and anthropology to tell a powerful and emotional story of homecoming, the reclamation of cultural heritage, and the enduring bonds of family.

Settler Romances and the Australian Girl argues that prevailing understandings of British colonialism need to be radically rethought. The book takes as its starting point anxieties about concepts of whiteness and femininity in settler Australia, and sets out highly original readings of turn-of-the-century adventure fictions and ethnographies. In so doing, Settler Romances and the Australian Girl provides insights into ideologies of race, class and gender in colonial and contemporary Australia, and demonstrates that current postcolonial theories are inadequate in their treatment of so-called settler or second world cultures.
