Summary : From the acclaimed author of Defy, Sara B. Larson, Sisters of Shadow and Light is a timeless and fantastical tale of sisterly love and powerful magic The night my sister was born, the stars died and were reborn in her eyes.... Zuhra and Inara have grown up in the Citadel of the Paladins, an abandoned fortress where legendary, magical warriors once lived before disappearing from the world—including their Paladin father the night Inara was born. On that same night, a massive, magical hedge grew and imprisoned them within the citadel. Inara inherited their father’s Paladin power; her eyes glow blue and she is able to make plants grow at unbelievable rates, but she has been trapped in her own mind because of a “roar” that drowns everything else out—leaving Zuhra virtually alone with their emotionally broken human mother. For fifteen years they have lived, trapped in the citadel, with little contact from the outside world...until the day a stranger passes through the hedge, and everything changes.

Summary : A warrior woman and her dark twin are destined to remake the world in this “powerful” tale, the first in a trilogy by a World Fantasy Award winner (Newsweek). Legend foretold the child named Jenna, who was three-times orphaned before she could crawl, a fate that would leave her in the hands of women who worshipped the benevolent goddess Great Alta. In this world without men, Jenna comes of age, learning quickly the skills of close combat. But her most powerful gift lies elsewhere: a mirror sister who emerges only in the darkness—a twin named Skada—and shares the soul of the young, white-haired warrior who might well be the goddess reborn. But if Jenna is, in truth, the one whose coming is awaited, there is cause for great alarm among those who rule the Dales, for the prophecy speaks of upheaval and change, and a devastating end of all things. An incomparable world-builder and one of America’s premier fantasists, the remarkable Jane Yolen begins a three-part saga as inventive, intelligent, and exciting as anything that has ever been produced in the literature of the fantastic. Brilliantly contrasting the “true” story of Jenna with the later myths, poetry, and so-called scholarship that her coming engendered, Yolen creates a culture as richly imagined as those found in the acclaimed novels of Ursula K. Le Guin. A truly magnificent work, Sister Light, Sister Dark takes fantasy fiction to wondrous places it has never gone before.

But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn into the throne much sooner than she expected. In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shapeshift, and rely on the alluring Lord Tanvir.

Summary : Sisters of Light is the first book of the beginning trilogy of the epic fantasy series Dancers of Light and Darkness. The story, which spans millennia, is set in the contemporary Southwest, and follows the journey of a young Sister of Light, Iya-Ko-Naya, and her promise-bound Brother of Light--an Outsider named Shatwa Hei--whom all except Iya's closest friends and allies innately distrust but are forced to acknowledge as one of their own. With support from her Warrior friends and Medicine-skilled relations, Iya obligingly submits to her Legacy-given task as Keeper of the Ways. It is now her challenge to discover a way to overcome the difficulties that have plagued her maternal lineage for hundreds of generations. In assuming her Grandmother's role as Daughter of the Mountain, Iya acquires the responsibility of reawakening the children of their people to the long-forgotten memories of their ancestors, the Ancient Ones, who once lived among the stars. It is only through the re-Awakening of those ancient memories--which include skills of warfare and healing and stepping into Shadow--that Iya's Sisters and Brothers will be able to defeat the Darkness that has returned to plague them. The journey begins as Iya and her tiny Sister-cousin, Sweet-Star, are led by an ancient, sentient being to discover the skills of their own maternal legacy. Unprotected, and willfully disregarding all rules of safety, the two tiny girls obsessively pursue the ancient mysteries that are revealed to them in dreamtime. Always at risk of being confronted by Dark Wolves, the two girls clandestinely search for hidden secrets they believe lie hidden deep in the canyons of the Mountain of the Ancestors. Under the watchful tutelage of their Grandmother, the two little girls eventually rediscover their ancient, legacy-bequeathed, up-Mountain Paths and ardently recommit to being Sister-Healers and Warriors of Light. They also find their own, personal guardian--a light-filled Warrior from beyond the stars--who has returned after countless lifetimes of searching for his long-lost Sisters of Light. As the young Warrior begins to fulfill the ancient prophecies passed down in Legend, the fact that he is an Outsider upsets more than the taboo-obsessed traditions--not to mention the prejudices--of the Elder Sisters of the Clan of the Mountain. As a consequence to the recovery of his ancient memories, now not only his own life, but the lives of all the re-Awakening Children of Light, are suddenly and unexpectedly threatened by the minions of Darkness who return because of the reawakening of those ancient gifts. The trilogy reunites Warriors from all clans of Iya's people in a classic struggle for dominion over the ancestral territories on the heights of the Mountain of the Ancestors, where Darkness takes the physical form of Great Dark Beasts--shaggy and black, with menacing, Shadow-filled eyes that shine blood-red with the color of their home-world. Only the Guardians of the Mountain and the Guardians of the Wasteland--Shadow-Fighters, Warriors of Light, and Seekers of Medicine--can ever hope to drive Darkness, and its heinous, child-devouring minions, back into the Otherworld realm from which they have come. It is with single-minded purpose and the strengths that they have gained from millennia of fighting against Darkness that the Warriors and Seekers of Light continue their struggle to release their haunted land--and their very dreams--from the ancient memories and Dark Beings that inhabit them.

Summary : From the breathtaking beaches of Thailand to the barely tamed wilds of colonial Australia, The Pearl Sister is the fourth “brilliantly written” (Historical Novel Society) novel in New York Times bestselling author Lucinda Riley’s epic Seven Sisters series. “Fans of Kristin Hannah, Kate Morton, and Riley’s previous novels will adore” (Booklist) this adventurous and moving story about two women searching for a place to call home. CeCe D’Aplièse has always felt like an outcast. But following the death of her father—the reclusive billionaire affectionately called Pa Salt by the six daughters he adopted from around the globe—she finds herself more alone than ever. With nothing left to lose, CeCe delves into the mystery of her origins. The only clues she holds are a black and white photograph and the name of a female pioneer who once lived in Australia. One hundred years earlier, Kitty McBride, a Scottish clergyman’s daughter, abandons her conservative upbringing to serve as the companion to a wealthy woman traveling from Edinburgh to Adelaide. Her ticket to a new land brings the adventure she dreamed of and a love that she had never imagined. When CeCe herself finally reaches the searing heat and dusty plains of the Red Centre of Australia, something deep within her responds to the energy of the area and the ancient culture of the Aboriginal people. As she comes closer to finding the truth of her ancestry, CeCe begins to believe that this untamed, vast continent could offer her what she never thought possible: a sense of belonging, and a home. With Lucinda Riley’s signature “meticulous research and attention to detail” (Booklist), The Pearl Sister is an immersive saga that “will keep readers glued to the page” (RT Book Reviews).

Electra d’Aplièse is a top model who seems to have it all: beauty, fame, and wealth. But beneath the glittery veneer, she’s cracking under all the pressure. When her father dies, she turns to alcohol and drugs to ease the pain. As friends and colleagues fear for her health, Electra receives a shocking letter from a stranger who claims to be her grandmother. In 1939, New Yorker Cecily Huntley-Morgan arrives in Kenya’s Lake Naivasha region for the exciting chance to stay with her godmother, the famous socialite Kiki Preston. But after a sheltered upbringing, she’s astounded by the hedonistic antics of the other ex-pats in the infamous Happy Valley set. Cecily soon grows to love her stunning but complicated new home, and she even accepts a proposal of marriage from an enigmatic older cattle farmer. After a shocking discovery and with war looming, Cecily feels isolated and alone. Until she meets a young woman in the woods and makes her a promise that will change the course of her life forever. Featuring Lucinda Riley’s “engaging and mesmerizing” (Library Journal, starred review) storytelling and filled with unforgettable and moving characters, The Sun Sister explores how love can cross seemingly impossible boundaries.
