Staff Reviews


A magical realist fantasy about a society where men of high class and social status have two wives: one that tends to his business and one that attends to his home. It comes from a legend about a king who married both the sun and the moon. The protagonist of the story gets paired with her arch-rival when she marries the president of the country, part of a long line of corrupt politicians, and she has to use her position to go undercover to facilitate a rebellion and uprising. Oh, she also falls in love with the arch-rival. So it really has it all: fantasy, magical lore, political unrest, gay, and lots of action. It's marketed as a YA novel, but it's good for anyone who is interested in fantasy or dystopian worlds!

Spring 2019 Kids Indie Next List


“There are only two outcomes when you finish at the Media School for Girls: a Primara, or First Wife, who is to act as the partner to her husband and run his household, or a Segunda, or Second Wife, who is in charge of being beautiful and bearing his children. Each man gets one of each. Dani is the school’s best student and the top Primara pick, so it’s no surprise when she’s chosen by the candidate favored to become their country’s next president. But Dani has a past that she will do everything in her power to protect. If you enjoy The Handmaid’s Tale, but are looking for a YA twist, this is the book for you. I definitely recommend this one.”
