Endpoint Series:
The Kardashev scale describes a Type-II species as 'one capable of harnessing the power of an entire solar system'. In the not-so-distant future, the peoples of Earth make first contact with just such a species.
Humanity does not survive.

In a handful of minutes, the planet is annihilated and the Sun harvested. All of humanity is lost—save one already damaged soul: Ryan McBain.

The Endpoint series follows Ryan as he forges a new life among the stars and encounters other powerful life forms. With a small cadre of friends and reluctant allies, he works from the fringes to unravel the truth behind a relentless force that is slowly consuming the entire Milky Way, system by system. Covert insurrection is rarely clear-cut or clean. To survive and advance the cause, Ryan must offer up his body, his mind, and possibly even his life. As the last human in the universe, he must embrace his own shadows and harness his inner chaos to fight the encroaching darkness. Only then will he have any hope of navigating through to the Endpoint.

The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall

Charles has his life path planned. A brilliant young man, heir to a hefty Boston fortune, son of a Harvard professor, his destiny is to be a professor of history. But he eschews that career to pursue divinity studies. When he meets Lily in the Radcliffe library, she is quick to inform him she doesn’t believe in God. But Charles can’t let her go. Their marriage is predicated on a deep love – and a deep understanding of the chasm between them.

James grew up in a hardscrabble Irish Catholic family in Chicago – and spent much of his youth attending to his alcoholic father and fearful mother. He sees his future change when a relative leaves him enough money to attend college. Here he develops his moral outrage, and civic-mindedness. When he meets Nan, he knows she is too good for him. The devout and beloved daughter of a minister and a debutante from Mississippi, Nan’s life was supposed to be predictable: Ole Miss and a hometown husband. But then her father insists she leave Mississippi for college. And then she meets James.

In THE DEARLY BELOVED, we follow these two couples through courtship and marriage, to their inevitable connection in New York City in 1963. When Charles and James are appointed co-pastors at the storied Third Presbyterian Church, the couples’ fates become entwined – uncomfortably.

Your Blue Is Not My Blue by Aspen Matis

From Aspen Matis, author of the acclaimed true story Girl in the Woods, comes a bold and atmospheric memoir of a woman who—in searching for her vanished husband—discovers deeper purpose.

Aspen’s and Justin’s paths serendipitously aligned on the Pacific Crest Trail when both were walking from Mexico to Canada, separately and alone—both using thru-hiking in hopes of escaping their pasts. Both sought to redefine themselves beneath the stars. By the time they made it to the snowy Cascade Range of British Columbia—the trail’s end—Aspen and Justin were in love.

Embarking on a new pilgrimage the next summer, they returned to those same mossy mountains where they’d met, and they married. They built a world together, three years of a happy marriage. Until a cold November morning, when, after kissing Aspen goodbye, Justin left to attend the funeral of a close friend.

He never came back. As days became weeks, her husband’s inexplicable absence left Aspen unmoored. Shock, grief, fear, and anger battled for control—but nothing prepared her for the disarming truth. A revelation that would lead Aspen to reassess not only her own life but that of the disappeared as well.

The result is a brave and inspiring memoir of secrets kept and unearthed, of a vanishing that became a gift: a woman’s empowering reclamation of unmitigated purpose in the surreal wake of mystifying loss.

Having escaped crumbling, socialist Venezuela, Yola Palacio hopes she and her family can finally settle into a peaceful new life in Trinidad. And so what if they’re there illegally – them and half the island! But life for the Palacios is never quiet, and when Yola’s formidable Aunt Celia dies, the family once again find themselves living on the edge. For Celia had been keeping a very big secret – a local criminal called Ugly to whom Celia owes an awful lot of money. Without the funds to pay him off, Ugly forces the entire family to do his bidding until Celia’s debt is settled. What Ugly says, the Palacios do, otherwise death could lurk on the other side.

What follows is a year that turns the Palacios’ lives upside down. But in the midst of the turmoil strolls Roman – Ugly’s distractingly gorgeous right-hand man. And although she knows it’s a terrible idea and a dangerous betrayal of her family’s predicament, Yola just can’t help herself... Where, though, does Roman’s loyalty lie?

I Keep My Worries in My Teeth by Anna Cox

A dazzling, sublimely funny debut that follows three unforgettable women who fight back after life kicks them in the teeth.

Esther, Frankie, and Ruth live in a small Ohio town anchored by the thriving Juliet Pencils factory. After a freak accident at the plant, these women have to re-create their lives using the only tools they’ve got: wits, molars, and a new pair of shoes.

Esther is an anxious person with a very specific prowess: she bites pencils. Her skill pays her bills but more importantly keeps her many worries in check. When the accident leaves her suddenly unemployed, she searches for new ways to manage her anxiety, but nothing works. She must discover a solution before her teeth mutiny and her worries take over.

Frankie, the teenage daughter of the pencil factory owner, is full of contradictions. She wages a campaign to become the only girl in an all-boys club and listens exclusively to punk music, but she also watches soap operas in secret. After the accident damages Frankie’s ability to speak, she is forced to step out of her powerful mother’s shadow so she can discover who she is and what she wants to say.

Ruth owns the local photography lab. She spends her days processing people’s happy memories but spends her nights alone, talking to her dead husband. As the town unravels, Ruth spearheads a massive campaign to refocus on its future, but nothing will succeed until Ruth lets go of her past.

This hilarious and redemptive story explores three women’s liberation

Passing Fancies by Marlowe Benn

Julia Kydd returns in a new mystery set in the beguiling world of the Harlem Renaissance, where reckless revelry leads to devastating crimes.

When stylish young bibliophile Julia Kydd returns to 1920s New York, she’s determined to launch her own private press. Julia’s aspirations take her into the heart of the Harlem Renaissance, a literary movement unlike any she’s known—where notions of race, sexuality, and power are slippery, and identities can be deceptively fluid.

At a risqué soiree, Julia befriends singer Eva Pruitt, whose new book is rumored to reveal lurid details about the Harlem nightlife. But Leonard Timson, a local nightclub owner, is furious when he suspects he’s the inspiration for a violent character in the book. By morning, Timson is dead, and both Eva and her manuscript are missing.

Julia finds herself immersed in a case as troubling as Jazz Age race relations. More questions than answers surface about Eva’s mysterious world, and powerful interests conspire to protect dangerous secrets. Still, no man can stand between Julia and the truth: appalled by violent injustice, she must use her wit and guile to find the killer.
