After the storm, a community comes together Framed by the stories of Hurricane Maria evacuees, Tossed to the Wind is the gripping account of the wreckage, despair, and displacement left in the wake of one of the deadliest natural disasters on U.S. soil. It is also a story of hope and endurance as Puerto Ricans on the island shared what little they had and the diaspora in Florida offered refuge. Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico as a high-end Category 4, and the storm surge, flash flooding, and countless landslides created widespread devastation. One hundred percent of the island lost drinking water and electricity. More than 3 million U.S. citizens lived for months without power, making it the worst blackout in American history. The slow recovery led to a mass evacuation. Thousands gathered what they had left and traveled to central Florida--already home to 1 million Puerto Ricans. In Tossed to the Wind, María Padilla and Nancy Rosado interview Puerto Ricans from all walks of life who now live in Orlando and Kissimmee, who fight every day to pick up the pieces of their world after Hurricane Maria. In their own words, evacuees describe families living temporarily out of motels, parents anxious about providing for their children, children starting new schools, and everyone worried about the families and friends they left behind. Told from the midst of chaos and incomprehensible loss, these are the stories--filled with pain and wisdom, sadness and laughter--that showcase the strength and resolve of Puerto Ricans.

In N.L. Katzuk's Tallie, the Guardian of Fire, an undeveloped country known as The Territories is a haven for demons who roam the land freely. Humans are in danger, but not all the demons are evil-some are half human and half demon and some are seeking justice. Tallie is a beautiful half demon-part woman and part panther demon. Tallie learns she has six brothers and sisters during her quest to revenge her mother's death. She embarks on a journey with her long lost love, Blaze and her childhood best friend, Shinya to the Northern Territory to save her baby sister and brother from their father. Unforeseen incidents cause Tallie to lose control of her newly found power over fire and now she must prove that she is worthy to become the next Guardian of Fire and Queen of the Demon Hunters. When Tallie discovers the real truth about her mother's fate, she will stop at nothing to seek vengeance and keep the balance of the known world. Who murdered Tallie's mother? Will she be able to realize her destiny or will her mother's murderer destroy that as well? Katzuk's masterful debut novel is filled with bloodthirsty demons, a beautiful heroine and the universal theme of good and evil. Once you begin reading, you won't be able to put it down until its dramatic climax.
