Q&A

WITH SARAH DASS What was the driver behind writing a novel based on Jane Austen's Persuasion? Persuasion is one of my all-time favourite books. I have a huge soft spot for the second-chance romance trope. I think there’s something hopeful and wildly romantic about two people who’ve drifted apart falling in love all over again. The novel is set in Trinidad and Tobago. How important is this location to you in your writing? Trinidad and Tobago is my home. It’s a beautiful place, rich in culture, but it rarely appears in popular media. Growing up in a small country, I sometimes felt isolated from the rest of the world, so when I didn’t see representation in the media I loved, it sometimes felt like wait – do we exist? That’s why it was so important for me to set my debut novel there. In a way, I was writing the book I wish I had when I was younger. What is the key theme and/or message you want readers to take away from this book? Where the Rhythm Takes You is about second chances. It deals with grief and regret, but also moving forward and following your dreams. I hope it’s ultimately an uplifting experience for readers, especially young adults who are still figuring out what they want from life. Can you share with us something about the book that isn’t in the blurb? Music plays a huge part in Where the Rhythm Takes You. There’s a playlist at the back of the book. For anyone interested in soca music, they can check it out. It has some of my all-time favourite songs on it.

Luminous chapter 1 extract

M

y father once described magic as an invisible beast, an unseen enemy that could snatch our lives away at any moment. As a small, impressionable child, I had imagined a lupine creature lurking outside among the whispering pines, breathing over my shoulder in our garden. For years, I didn’t even leave the house; it was magic that had killed my mother, after all. I was old enough now to understand that magic didn’t work that way. But as I hurried down the dark road, past the woods that had become my haven during daylight hours, my childhood fears didn’t feel so foolish. I glanced behind me, sure I’d find Belle Sabine, the fabled witch of every young woman’s nightmares, swooping down as silent as an owl, ready to steal my youth and leave an empty husk behind. Instead, I saw only an empty sky. But in my brief distraction, I tripped over a rock in the road, falling hard onto my knees as punishment for worrying about a fairytale. Cursing myself for my clumsiness, I dusted off my hands, wincing as a sharp pebble dislodged from my palm. I couldn’t afford this kind of delay. It was close to midnight, and there was no moon to speak of, which made my situation even more precarious; my exposed skin glowed so brightly that moths circled me like a flame. But my little sister, Mina, was missing. I had to tell Father. As I rose to my feet, I heard the sound of footsteps up the road. I glanced around for a place to hide, but there was no time and nothing that could extinguish my light anyway. A moment later, a figure loomed at the margins of my glow. Some said Belle Sabine had died, others that she was biding her time until the townspeople became complacent once again. But I was convinced she had come to kill me on the one night I had dared to venture past our threshold. I shrank back as skirts and slippered feet came into view, followed by a woman’s arms cradling a basket, and finally, the face of Margana, the weaver who lived next door. Not here to kill me, then. But a witch, nevertheless. And one arguably as dangerous as Belle Sabine, given who she worked for.

“What are you doing out here?” she demanded. “It’s the middle of the night.” “Mina is gone,” I blurted. “Father is still at work, and I didn’t know what else to do.” Margana scrutinized me for a moment. “You’re a witch.” A chill that had nothing to do with the cool night air crept over my scalp. No one had ever called me a witch to my face before, though of course I knew what I was. My entire life revolved around my glowing skin and the fear that the kingdom’s most powerful warlock would discover it. Lord Darius was employed by the king himself, gathering mages and torturing them if they didn’t do his bidding. Margana might not be his servant by choice, but he was dangerous enough that no mage dared cross him. No mage who had lived to tell about it, anyway. I pulled Father’s cloak tighter around myself, but it was futile. She already knew. I had wasted too much time getting up the nerve to leave the house after I found Mina’s bed empty, wringing my hands at the window, wondering if she’d been kidnapped by drifters or lured into the forest by a ghost lantern. Then, once I was on the road, I had foolishly stopped to look at the devil’s footprints, little white mushrooms that grew in pairs of two, resembling the cloven hooves of a demon. I’d seen them in daylight plenty of times, but never at night. They had caught my eye because their glow was so similar to my own. Oddly, Margana’s basket was full of the mushrooms. Her cornflower-blue eyes were pale and otherworldly in their light. As if sensing my curiosity, she shifted the basket to her other hip. Margana was one of the few people who lived outside the gates of the ancient village of Sylvan, like us. She was also my best friend Evran’s mother—and the only other witch I knew. “I always wondered why your father moved you girls out here after your mother died,” she said. “Now it all makes sense. But something tells me your father wouldn’t be pleased to know you’re outside, exposing yourself.” She grabbed one of my hands and turned it over, examining it like a bruised apple at market. Against Margana’s dull skin, mine looked false, as if I wasn’t a real person at all. “I have to go,” I said, pulling free. 13


She sighed. “Keep your head down, and pray you don’t meet anyone on the road. Darius’s spies are everywhere.” My eyes widened in fear, and she chuckled quietly. “Not me, silly girl.” I swallowed audibly. If there really were spies in Sylvan, Margana was the most likely suspect. She already worked for Darius, after all. I was about to step around her when my eyes drifted to the basket once again. “I thought the devil’s footprints were poisonous.” Her lips curved in a smile that didn’t reach her eyes. “Oh, they are. Highly. Fortunately, I don’t plan on eating them. Good luck, Liora.” I nodded and hurried to the stone steps leading down to Sylvan. Above me, a heavy iron chain was suspended between the cliffs. As far as I knew, Sylvan was the only village in Antalla—maybe the world—that could boast having attracted not one, but two falling stars. A fragment of the first had been melted into the shape of a five-pointed star and hung from the chain. At night, it was glimmered overhead. The second star—my star—had disintegrated amid the flames when it landed. I wound my way silently through Sylvan’s narrow streets, toward Father’s shop. He and Adelle, my older, more responsible sister, were likely the only ones working at this hour. Just as I quickened my pace, I heard a high-pitched shriek from somewhere above me. I looked up to where a lamp winked on in an apartment window, illuminating two silhouettes, then down to the shop on my left. The tailor’s shop. Mina. Without thinking, I grabbed the cast iron boot scraper sitting by the front door of the store and hurled it through the window. Glass shattered, leaving a jagged hole that gaped like a mouth mid-scream. Heart racing, I flattened myself against the alcove by the door as a man shouted and a window screeched open. The tailor, a young man nearly as alluring as the fabrics he sold, poked his head out for a moment, then disappeared, likely heading downstairs to look for the culprit. I scurried to the alcove in front of the butcher’s, hoping my light would be hidden there. “Get behind me,” Luc said from somewhere inside the shop. “The thief could still be here.” “You’re so brave.” I sighed in relief at the sound of Mina’s voice, before fury shot through me like an arrow. I should have known Mina would come here; she had flirted

with Luc relentlessly today, which was how we’d acquired three yards of the champagne-coloured silk she wanted for the dress I’d spent all evening working on. A moment later, they emerged onto the street, Mina clutching at Luc’s sleeve as he lifted his lamp and peered into the darkness. He tossed his black hair out of his eyes and frowned. “It doesn’t look like they stole anything. Just vandals, I suppose.” “Or an enemy,” Mina breathed, dramatic as ever. “Do you have any nemeses?” When he turned his dark gaze on her, something tugged at my heart. She was wearing a dress I’d made for myself when I was her age. It hung loose on her thin frame, but the hem grazed her calves, a sure sign she had altered it. She had nothing but a shawl pulled around her shoulders, and from where I stood, it was painfully clear that the tailor was not interested in her the way she no doubt hoped. “I have to find a member of the night guard and report this. You shouldn’t be here. If your father catches you, he’ll have me hanged. You’re a sweet girl, Mina, but this is inappropriate.” “But the silk…” “That was for your sister. Now, please, go home.” Mina caught her lip in her teeth to keep from crying. With a nod, she hurried away, tears already streaming down her cheeks. I waited for the tailor to start up the street before I ran out of the alcove to catch her. She squealed in alarm when I placed my hand on her shoulder, and I quickly clapped my other hand over her mouth. “It’s me,” I whispered, lowering my hand slowly when I was confident she wouldn’t scream. She swiped at her tears. “Liora? What are you doing out here? What if someone sees you?” My anger softened at her concern, until I remembered that she was the reason I was out in the first place. “I might ask you the same questions. If Father had come home and found you missing, he’d have killed you.” “And what if he goes home and finds both of us missing? Have you considered that?” I opened my mouth to scold her, but she was right. “You can explain what you were doing once we get home,” I said. In typical Mina fashion, she stuck her tongue out at me and ran. 14

onths have passed since the violent coup that upended Princess Karina’s life. She is now a fugitive racing across the desert to sanctuary in the Arkwasian Jungle, where she hopes to find allies to help her reclaim her kingdom from her adopted brother's clutches. Meanwhile, Malik's illusion magic is flourishing under Farid's tutelage, but the bonds keeping the Faceless King trapped in his mind are weakening. His quest to best the spirit once and for all leads him deep into the dark history of his own ancestors. An unlikely ally by his side, Princess Hanane, Karina's resurrected sister, hides more secrets than even she realizes. As the fabric holding Sonande together begins to tear, Malik and Karina once again find themselves on opposite sides of an ever-worsening conflict, even as their connection flares to a breaking point. And when the fate of the world hangs on a single, horrifying choice, they each must decide what they value most: a power that could transform the world, or a love that could transform their lives.

Until she meets Griffin, the king’s champion infamous for hunting down the draignochs that plague their kingdom. Neither has any idea of the destiny that they both carry, or that their meeting will set off a chain of events that will alter every aspect of the life they know—and all of history thereafter.

high-stakes, pacy reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood. For as long as sixteenyear-old Adele can remember, the village of Oakvale has been surrounded by the dark wood - a forest filled with terrible monsters. A forest that light cannot penetrate. Like her fellow villagers, she knows to steer clear of the woods unless absolutely necessary. But unlike her neighbours, Adele has a very good reason for going into the dark wood. Adele is one of a long line of guardians: women who secretly take on the form of a wolf, in order to protect their village. Her life - and the lives of every villager she watches over, depends upon her secret being kept. But when accepting her fate means giving up the boy she loves, abandoning the future she imagined for herself, and breaking her own moral code, she must decide how far she is willing to go to keep her neighbours safe.

fter solving the case of Truly Devious, Stevie Bell investigates her first mystery outside of Ellingham Academy in this spine-chilling and hilarious stand-alone mystery. Amateur sleuth Stevie Bell needs a good murder. After catching a killer at her high school, she’s back at home for a normal (that means boring) summer. But then she gets a message from the owner of Sunny Pines, formerly known as Camp Wonder Falls—the site of the notorious unsolved case, the Box in the Woods Murders. Back in 1978, four camp counsellors were killed in the woods outside of the town of Barlow Corners, their bodies left in a gruesome display. The new owner offers Stevie an invitation: Come to the camp and help him work on a true crime podcast about the case. Stevie agrees, as long as she can bring along her friends from Ellingham Academy. Nothing sounds better than a summer spent together, investigating old murders. But something evil still lurks in Barlow Corners. When Stevie opens the lid on this long-dormant case, she gets much more than she bargained for. The Box in the Woods will make room for more victims. This time, Stevie may not make it out alive. 28

When the Sterling Foundation offers Marigold’s mum free housing for a year, her newly blended family moves to the embattled city of Cedarville, along with Mari’s bratty stepsister, Piper. Mari wants to be back in sunny California, not this oddly renovated home in a decaying town—but it’s not like the house wants her there, either. It starts off slow. The perma-locked basement. Doors opening and closing when no one’s there. Mari’s stuff getting moved around her room. Piper makes a new friend, Ms. Suga, except no one else has seen her. But ghosts aren’t real, right? Mari and her brother, Sammy, set up cameras to investigate. The house doesn’t like that. When a fire starts across the street, Marigold becomes suspicious of Piper. After Sammy needs to be taken to the hospital when he almost dies, Mari decides they need to leave this house. Now.

EVERYTHING WITHIN AND IN BETWEEN NIKKI BARTHELMESS

I

Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter meets Color Me In. Ri Fernández struggles to reclaim a heritage and a mother from her strict grandmother who has kept Ri away from both. For Ri Fernández’s entire life, she’s been told, “We live in America and we speak English.” Raised by her strict Mexican grandma, Ri has never been allowed to learn Spanish. What’s more, her grandma has always pushed Ri away from the neighbourhood they call home and toward her best friend’s world of mansions and country clubs in the hopes that it’ll bring Ri closer to achieving the “American Dream." In her most private thoughts, Ri has always believed that her mother, who disappeared when she was young, would accept her exactly how she is. So, when Ri finds a secret unanswered letter from her mum begging for a visit, Ri decides to reclaim what her grandma kept from her: a language and a mother. But nothing goes as planned. Her mum isn’t who Ri imagined she would be. And Ri’s struggling to navigate the different interweaving threads of her mixed heritage that make her who she is. Nobody has any idea of who Ri really is, not even Ri herself.

aylon Russell Brewer is a fat, openly gay boy stuck in the small West Texas town of Clover City. His plan is to bide his time until he can graduate, move to Austin with his twin sister, Clementine, and finally go Full Waylon, so that he can live his Julie-the-hills-are-alive-with-the-sound-of-musicAndrews truth. So when Clementine deviates from their master plan right after Waylon gets dumped, he throws caution to the wind and creates an audition tape for his favourite TV drag show, Fiercest of Them All. What he doesn’t count on is the tape accidentally getting shared with the entire school... As a result, Waylon is nominated for prom queen as a joke. Clem’s girlfriend, Hannah Perez, also receives a joke nomination for prom king. Waylon and Hannah decide there’s only one thing to do: run—and leave high school with a bang. A very glittery bang. Along the way, Waylon discovers that there is a PUM PKIN lot more to running for prom court than campaign 9780062880451 posters and plastic crowns, especially when he 27/05/2021 has to spend so much time with the very cute and HB £12.99 infuriating prom king nominee Tucker Watson.

ears after the events of The Gentleman’s Guide and The Lady’s Guide, Monty and Felicity’s younger brother, Adrian Montague, who stands to inherit his family’s estate - sets out on his own adventure to find his disowned siblings after discovering he’s not an only child. The sole heir to his family’s fortune, Adrian Montague desperately wants to be free—from his father’s high expectations; the grief of losing his beloved mother; and the constant war being waged inside his mind. Adrian was diagnosed with hysteria at a young age and it’s always been kept a secret. But when he has a breakdown at his engagement party, the public learns Adrian’s worst fear: he might not be fit to run the Montague estate. Thankfully, Adrian is given an opportunity to avoid the impending scandal: a trip to the Caribbean to claim the last of his mother’s possessions. But along the way, Adrian discovers another secret lurking in his family tree. He is actually the youngest of three children—his sister Felicity and brother “Monty” went missing over a decade ago. Now Adrian has the chance to find them and offer to pass the estate back to the rightful heirs.

MELANIE DICKERSON Castle of Refuge

E

ver since she was a child, Audrey wanted her life to be extraordinary. But as the daughter of a viscount born in late fourteenth-century England, the only thing expected of her was to marry—until an act of malice by her sister, Maris, four years ago damaged her face and her prospects. Though Maris was sent away, twenty-year-old Audrey is still suffering the scars of her sister’s cruelty. When her father announces his plans to marry off his damaged daughter and bring Maris home, Audrey decides to flee in search of her true destiny. However, life outside her home is dangerous, and she soon finds herself attacked, sick, and in desperate need of help. She is taken in at Dericott Castle to be nursed back to health. While there, she decides to keep her identity a secret and work as a servant in the castle. But she doesn’t count on falling in love with the young and handsome Lord Dericott, who lost his arm several months earlier and bears scars of his own. Meanwhile, Edwin—Lord Dericott—is curious about the new, well-educated servant’s identity. All he knows is that he’s quickly becoming smitten with her. When the man Audrey’s father wanted her to marry comes looking for her, she and Edwin must make lifechanging decisions about what to believe and whether or not love is truly worth trusting.
