Set in Victorian London, J.M. Miro‘s Ordinary Monsters: A Novel follows two children with paranormal powers. Charlie Ovid’s body heals itself, erasing the scars of a brutal childhood. Foundling Marlowe glows with a strange bluish light and can melt or mend flesh. As they discover the truth about their abilities – and find other children with supernatural gifts – a new question arises: What truly defines a monster? In her debut novel, Thistlefoot, GennaRose Nethercott offers a modern reinterpretation of the myth of Baba Yaga. The Yaga siblings, Bellatine and Isaac, reunite after years apart to receive a mysterious inheritance: Thistlefoot, a sentient hut on chicken legs. But with it also comes a sinister figure, the Longshadow Man, bearing violent secrets from the past. And in Yaffa S. SantosA Touch of Moonlight: A Novel, what unfolds is the story of Larimar Cintrón, who works hard at three things: her job as brand manager for a corporate bakery chain, taking care of her parents and her “abuela,” and hiding that she’s a “ciguapa” – a mythical creature of Dominican folklore. Now she must navigate her family’s expectations, the demands of her job, and her magical identity to embrace her new love.
