Yeine Darr wants only to mourn her mother's death, but her estranged grandfather Dekarta, ruler of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, has other plans. Summoned to the city of Sky and named one of Dekarta's heirs, Yeine must master the politics of the cruel Arameri society if she is to have any chance of winning the throne...and staying alive. Read if you like your fantasy non-Euro-centric, dark, and sexy.
First-time author and illustrator Gemma Mernio makes it hard to decide which is more charming, her drawings or her text. This book is fun right from the start, and ends with a delightful surprise!
This is one of the best books I read all winter. A haunting tale of family secrets, it will keep you up nights, and stay with you long after you’ve finished.
Reminiscent of Jeanette Haien’s The All of It in its simple beauty and lasing power, Stones for Ibarra is a portrait gallery of the inhabitants of an isolated Mexican town named Ibarra. Sara and Richard Everton have left behind established lives in California to reopen an abandoned copper mine in Ibarra, a place they have never been and about which they know very little. Initially the villagers seem as remote and foreign as the landscape, but as the mine prospers and Richard’s health fails, Sara comes to appreciate the bonds she has forged and the ways in which even the most trivial seeming incidents are imbued with the extraordinary.
