Rebelwing
Rebelwing is the first book in the Rebelwing series. The series features Prudence Wu, a black-market smuggler and a student at New Columbia Preparatory Academy. This high school student is on a lucky streak, and business is currently booming. In between classes, Prudence and her friend Anabel sell banned media to the United-Continental Confederacy citizen. While smuggling gig makes the teenagers some good money, they are happy to do it for the good of the people. One day, a drop-off goes wrong, and Prudence comes close to being nabbed by UCC enforcers. Fortunately, Prudence is rescued before the enforcers get to her.

The black-market media queen is shocked to find that her rescuer is a cybernetic dragon. While Prudence is happy that she doesn’t go to jail, she is shocked to learn that the dragon has imprinted on her. This can only mean that she will have to be the dragon’s pilot. Prudence’s encounter with the dragon sets in motion a revolution that she will have no choice but to take part in. Anabel, Cat, and Alex are also going to find themselves at the center of this gruesome revolution. Things are going to get quite thick at some point, and advanced technology will terrify these friends who had no idea the troubles they were getting themselves into.

Rebelwing is one of a kind stories where the queer characters get to be heroes and save the world. Sure, the main characters come with faults, just like the rest of us, but they are fighting for the good side. The story is action-packed, and the suspense that keeps on rising as the story continues will keep you turning the pages. Some of the issues highlighted here include capitalism, censorship, and greed. Set in a world where bad politics and media censorship are the order of the day, it is quite fascinating seeing young people who are willing to do something good for their community. Prudence is a great character, and even though she is unsure of what to do in the beginning, she rises to become a perfect Rebelwing pilot. The young girl also witnesses tremendous growth throughout the story.

Rebelwing is a perfect read if you are a science fiction fan. Even though this book is designed with young readers in mind, the author touches on real issues and the effects they have on people. Join Prudence and her friends as they work to fight for the greater good. There is also a bit of unlikely romance that sheds some light when things get terrifying. The author is quite talented, given the way the story develops. From a well thought out world to nuanced yet flawed characters, this story has it all and so much more. It is safe to say that this is among the funniest, most thought-provoking books you will find in the market today.

Hungry Demigods
Hungry Demigods features Isabel, a blind tri-lingual who’s funny as hell and a bit salty. She understands her way through the kitchen, and her salty nature makes it easy for people to relax around her. One day, Isabel’s brother comes home with a friend from school. Isabel can tell that her brother’s friend is cursed with immortality, and she resolves to help him. Her experiment starts with magical pork buns that Isabel uses to ply him before going on a search for a cure for his strange condition.

One of the themes that come out clear in this story is consent. Isabel is clear about her and Elias’s interactions right from the beginning, and this helps built trust between these two. The immortality experiences are also juxtaposed. For Isabela, her immortality is mirrored by the painful and complicated relationship she has with her father. In her innocence, Isabel tries to build bridges to fix her family. In the case of Elias, something is taken away from him, thanks to his short-sighted parents. Fortunately, the duo works to find solutions that deliver the desired results in the end.
This is one of those stories that will leave you in stitches and still move you to tears. The author’s descriptions of the downtown community, among other areas, are so vivid, making this a nostalgic read if you have visited any of them. The story touches on the effect of parental relationships to their children. The relationships between parents somehow shape the children, and this can be a positive or negative thing. Sadly, Isabel had to deal with abandonment issues, and the person concerned gave such flimsy reasons for the same. Elias’s parents, on the other hand, are trying to reach out, but their actions in the past continue to push their son away.

Though short, this book comes with many lessons. It is easy to see how some parents think that they love while in the real sense, they’re abusive to their children. However, this doesn’t mean the story is all gloom, far from it. There is a lot of sunshine here and many moments to have a good laugh. Isabel is an easy character to love, and so is Elias. You can expect to share in their happy and challenging moments and wish them nothing but the best.

Hungry Demigods is a perfect choice if you are looking for something that will cheer you up. The story flows perfectly, and this is one of those books that you can enjoy in one sitting. It is refreshing to see Isabel and Elias overcome the challenges that life throws at them even without much help from others.
