Iron Widow By Xiran Jay Zhao Cover Image
ISBN: 9780735269958
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Tundra Books - February 28th, 2023

"Iron Widow is the Chinese feminist mecha book that I didn’t realize I needed in my life. Inspired by the only female emperor in China, Xiran Jay Zhao crafts an enthralling story about giant monster invaders and the monsters that were created to defend against them called Chrysalises. Iron Widow is the tale of the male pilots who are treated like celebrities and the female concubine “co-pilots” who are sacrificed due to the strain on their minds during the battles. Of a female, Wu Zetian, who is not content with playing the role of a subservient sacrifice and fights to overthrow the system even as she is attacked and threatened by the men in power. With fascinating characters who overcome their limits and the societal codes around them, impressive action-packed battles, and ample surprises; Iron Widow is a raw and empowering book that will stay with me for a long time." -Rebecca, Atlanta

The Many Daughters of Afong Moy: A Novel By Jamie Ford Cover Image

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Atria Books - May 2nd, 2023

"My favorite author, Jamie Ford, who wrote Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, has outdone himself! The Many Daughters of Afong Moy spans the years between 1834 and 2045, and is a very emotional examination of epigenetics. The trauma inflicted on Afong seems to manifest itself throughout several generations, however, Dorothy is determined to break the cycle and learns that her past is the key to the future." -Sandra, Seattle
