Science Fiction and Fantasy

From award-winning author G. Willow Wilson, The Bird King is an epic journey set during the reign of the last sultan in the Iberian peninsula at the height of the Spanish Inquisition. “I loved this book so much...The Bird King is ostensibly the story of a journey, of the limits to escape―but it is also a journey into story, and faith, and refuge, the family we choose and the friends we find. It’s deeply beautiful and wondrously sad, and I can't tell if it ended too quickly or if I just needed it not to―if I just wanted to dwell in a home built out of story for a little longer yet.” -NPR From $9.99 SHOP NOW
