Speculative fiction — fascinating sci-fi anthology Exhalation and the timey-wimey literary novel Before the Coffee Gets Cold — make up this month’s reads, warping reality as we know it. But before then, I’ll be starting off with two light reads that I am happy to recommend for YA fantasy fans.
The Aeriel Chronicles: A Flight of Broken Wings / A Call for Brighter Days (Nupur Chowdhury, 2019 – 2021)
Six centuries after a lost war against humanity, the Aeriels are back on Ragah to steal a powerful weapon that could prove deadly to their own race. Their return to Earth stirs painful memories for Aerial hunter Ruban Kinoh, who arms himself not just to protect his city but avenge his family.
