Explanation of the Book:

Award-winning author Duncan Tonatiuh reimagines one of Mexico’s cherished legends. Princess Izta had many wealthy suitors but dismissed them all. When a mere warrior, Popoca, promised to be true to her and stay always by her side, Izta fell in love. The emperor promised Popoca if he could defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw, then Popoca and Izta could wed. When Popoca was near to defeating Jaguar Claw, his opponent sent a messenger to Izta saying Popoca was dead. Izta fell into a deep sleep and, upon his return, even Popoca could not wake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side. So two volcanoes were formed: Iztaccíhuatl, who continues to sleep, and Popocatépetl, who spews ash and smoke, trying to wake his love.

Explanation of the Book:

Centuries have passed since the Great War of Kurukshetra, but her name is still uttered in hushed whispers – eunuch, hijra, neither man nor woman... But was this all there was to Shikhandini, Princess of Panchala? Was this her only identity? The firstborn of King Drupada, Shikhandini was trained to be a warrior from early childhood. She became a Rathi, and then an Athirathi, a warrior of unmatched valour and skill, who singlehandedly defeated the hundred Kaurava brothers in battle. All her life she strove to fulfil one goal – to slay the Maharathi of Hasthinapur, in a trans-generational act of vengeance. But was this her final destiny? At the Battle of Kurukshetra, when the Pandava brothers seem to have lost all hope and are facing defeat, it is Shikhandini who joins them and turns the battle in their favour. If not for her, history would have been written differently. But what was the price she paid? How far did she go in order to prove herself and accomplish her goal? What did she sacrifice along the way? Was she just a pawn in the game between the Kurus? Or was she a true hero, conveniently forgotten because she was not born a man? In this retelling of epochal events, Shikhandini’s transformation from woman to man, based on ancient medical science, is what makes this story both riveting and real in its validity, human intensity, driven purpose and ultimate sacrifice. In this new dawn, when the third gender is finally gaining acceptance and identity, it is perhaps time Shikhandini’s story was retold in all its tragic glory.

Explanation of the Book:

The Princess and the Peace was originally titled The Dark Dragons of Dozo, but many argued that this would fool readers into thinking the book was a fantasy. It is not. It is a romance, though my brother would argue that romances are fantasy. It is part of a series of novels that are set geographically at the crossroads of different cultures and religions; and roughly at the time when the different cultures and religions were venturing out of their domains and mingling, often with destructive results. The stories that take place in Viridian are not about destruction, but about finding commonalities, and, ultimately, because they are romances, about how love conquers all. The cultures in the Valley include kingdoms and patriarchy, queendoms and matriliny, gods, God, and the Goddess, Maya. It includes Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Goddess worshipers and atheists. It includes the white west, the Asian east, hints of Africa and the Middle East, and Hindustan. Woven through it all are women and men navigating their lives, like ships on stormy seas; seeking power, seeking happiness, and hoping that love does not ruin it all. Syrene Saladin began writing as a way to keep sane. Really. She is the mother of three and a public school teacher. She loves being a mother and a teacher, but face it - those are the most stressful jobs on the planet. Writing was meditation - like the wand and the pensieve in Harry Potter - it took the thoughts from her head and detangled them onto paper, focusing her mind and unleashing the creative force. She wrote non-stop for the next fifteen years: in between classes (during meetings - maybe ...), while waiting at practices, before doctor appointments ... and, all the while, staying sane - though some may argue that point. For the longest time, however, she did not think that the romance market was the most lucrative; nor did she think writing romances was serious business. Until she realized, it was. Serious business, that is. The romance hero, though too good to be true; is too good not to dream about. And, the romance heroine - needed a makeover. Our heroes are preserved: they remain amazing; but, our heroines are badass. They take on patriarchy, overbearing fathers, brothers and lovers, cultural constructs, societal concepts of a woman's place ... much like our own selves ... and they succeed. Read about it, and them, in the Valley of Viridian books.

The Kingdoms of Sand & Sky Trilogy Book 1: The Princess Will Save You Book 2: The Queen Will Betray You Book 3: The King Will Kill You (forthcoming) Praise for The Princess Will Save You “Everything we love about YA fantasy, complete with first love, sweeping adventure, and a fierce heroine who holds her own.

And yes, this is a kissing book.”—Ashley Poston, author of Heart of Iron “A breakneck fantasy adventure.... Swoony romance, sword fights, a great cast of characters and some clever parallels to a story about another princess who won’t be made a bride makes The Princess Will Save You a strong contender for my favorite novel of the year.”—Emily Hall Schroen, Main Street Books, St. Charles, Missouri At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Explanation of the Book:

Dear Primo covers the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of two very different childhoods, while also emphasizing how alike Charlie and Carlitos are at heart.

Inspired by the ancient art of the Mixtecs and other cultures of Mexico, Tonatiuh incorporates their stylized forms into his own artwork. F&P Level: M F&P Genre: RF

Explanation of the Book:

This charming book introduces one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century, Diego Rivera, to young readers. It tells the story of Diego as a young, mischievous boy who demonstrated a clear passion for art and then went on to become one of the most famous painters in the world. Duncan Tonatiuh also prompts readers to think about what Diego would paint today. Just as Diego's murals depicted great historical events in Mexican culture or celebrated native peoples, if Diego were painting today, what would his artwork depict? How would his paintings reflect today's culture? Diego Rivera: His World and Ours is a wonderful introduction to this great artist. Praise for Diego Rivera « “By establishing a link between modern readers and Rivera and challenging them to "make our own murals," the author makes art both aspiration and action. Both solid introduction and exhortation, this book will thrill budding artists.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review “Kids will want to talk about the great painter, and young artists will find inspiration for their own creations.” –Booklist

Explanation of the Book:

Ever get the feeling, when you read about all the "classic" categories of submissive, that there must be one missing? You know which one we're talking about. The missing submissive is the one that is the wicked-smart, strong-willed, uber-competent, ultra-competitive, synergistic, switchy, crusader. She's no one's doormat, never a victim. She is a kick-ass submissive for the 21st century. Think: Xena, the Warrior Princess, kneeling at the feet of Hercules. This definitely isn't a woman in a precarious predicament waiting helplessly for her White Knight to arrive and slay a dragon for her. This was a woman who, as she is kicking the dragon's ass, smiles at the White Knight standing on the sidelines and says, “Hey, buddy! Feel free to jump right in and lend your sword to this fight. Otherwise, stay the hell out of my way!” The Warrior Princess doesn't need or want a rescuer. The Warrior Princess needs an ally that she can rely upon in the chaos of battle. She seeks a warrior equal to the tasks that she has already chosen for herself, and is demonstrably capable of accomplishing with, or without, his help. She is willing and able to fight the good fight alone, but welcomes the notion of having a worthy partner, fighting by her side. And yet, when the day's fighting is done, she is perfectly at ease with considering herself entirely His - heart, might, mind, body, and soul. Why is she important? She is important because she just may be the hope and salvation of this lifestyle. There will come a day, in the not too distant future, when the Warrior Princess Submissive will be forced to become a combatant in a highly politicized war on the BDSM lifestyle. It will be a propaganda war that characterizes all Dominants as abusers and all submissives as victims of abusive and exploitative relationships. When she comes out of the shadows and chooses to fight for this lifestyle instead of against it - as many of her contemporaries will expect her to do - her strong moral compass will reassure those on the sidelines that she is doing what is right and just. Michael Makai is the author of the Amazon best-seller, Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook.
