Eve and Leah are identical twins—but beyond that, they’re polar opposites. Struggling journalist Leah envies Eve’s seemingly perfect life—the loyal husband, the beautiful twin daughters, the stellar career—little knowing that what Eve longs for most is Leah’s independence.

When a shocking event upends their world, one woman seizes a split-second chance to change everything and follow her sister down a different life path. It’s a spontaneous choice, but there’s no going back. How will she deal with the fallout when covering up one untruth means lying to everyone—about everything?

One thing is clear: both twins have secrets, and both just want to be happy. But what price will they pay to live the life they’ve always wanted?

In Dovren, even the angels sin.

Most nights, I dance and laugh with friends till the morning birds start to sing. But then disaster strikes.

A sinfully sexy angel strides in to my favorite dance hall and compels me to work for him--in Hades Castle. Sure, I always wanted to see the inside of the ancient fortress that looms over the city. But the fallen angel is a brutal tyrant--and I think he killed my sister.

Now, he wants me to pretend to be his wife. Instead, I plan to assassinate him. Too bad the only way to kill an angel is to seduce him. And the sensual charms of the fallen will make it hard to stay on task.

But this is a battle, and he’s my beautiful enemy. We are fighting with weapons of desire, and we're both at risk of losing ourselves in this war.

A god will return
When the earth and sky converge
Under the black sun

In the holy city of Tova, the winter solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse, a rare celestial event proscribed by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world.

Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distant city bound for Tova and set to arrive on the solstice. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. Her ship carries one passenger. Described as harmless, the passenger, Serapio, is a young man, blind, scarred, and cloaked in destiny. As Xiala well knows, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain.

Crafted with unforgettable characters, Rebecca Roanhorse has created an epic adventure exploring the decadence of power amidst the weight of history and the struggle of individuals swimming against the confines of society and their broken pasts in the most original series debut of the decade.

Giving Up Whiteness by Jeff James

Giving Up Whiteness by Jeff  JamesEnter to win one of 10 copies of Giving Up Whiteness: One Man's Journey by Jeff James.

If you're one of the millions who have read books such as How to Be an Antiracist, White Fragility, Caste, or similar books, Giving Up Whiteness may be a logical and satisfying next step on your journey. The book explores how one man discovered the history of race and whiteness, how it affected every aspect of his life, and how he attempted to "unwhiten" a worldview that immersed him from birth in Appalachia.

With a blend of honest storytelling and incisive critique, James guides readers through the questions he encountered:

* How and why were race and, specifically, whiteness invented?
* What privileges and protections accrue to people categorized as white—and why has it been so difficult to expand them to everyone?
* How has the white Christian church bolstered white supremacy?
* If whiteness was made up, Is it even possible to give it up as an identity -- and if so, what would that look like?

The things we can't see yield the most power, so it's time to take a hard look at whiteness.

"With the spirit of an explorer, James invites us into his quest to discover what divesting from whiteness looks like and whether or not it's even possible. Personal storytelling at its best!" ---- Debby Irving, author of Waking Up White
