It’s 1782 in New Mexico and slavers are operating ruthlessly throughout the colony. Apaches and Comanches battle with Spanish militias to protect their homelands. Governor Anza, at his wits’ end, commandeers the help of Nando, a naïve but wily young half-breed, embedding him in his network of spies. Fast-paced and true to the realities of the time, The King’s Lizard catapults the reader into the fierce and demanding life of colonial Santa Fe. Did you ever wish you could roam the American west in early days? See the land as it once was and experience life on a frontier that is gone forever? Pamela Christie, an award-winning author of the historic Southwest, has created a mystery series set in old Santa Fe when Spain has already occupied New Mexico for almost 200 years. In The King’s Lizard, the first of the Lizard Tales, the reader rides with Nando Aguilar, a young man with a light heart and a pleasingly competent hand. Lost between the culture of his Ute mother who is a slave, and his upper class Spanish father, Nando struggles to find himself, discovers love and gains stature as a member of Governor Anza’s spy network

After the loss of her stepmother to cancer, Ada Limón chose to quit her job with a major travel magazine in New York, move to the mountains of Kentucky, and disappear. Yet, in the wake of death and massive transition, she found unexpected love, both for a man and for a place, all the while uncovering the core unity between death and beauty that drives our world. I am beautiful. I am full of love. I am dying,” the author writes. It's this narrative of transformation and acceptance that suffuses these poems. Unflinching and unafraid, Limón takes her reader on a journey into the most complex and dynamic realms of existence and identity, all while tracing a clear narrative of renewal. Throughout, the poet lulls us into the security of her lines, only to cut into us where we least expect it. This is not New York and I am not important,” she writes midway through a poem about her new home. A poem opens with the revelation that Six horses died in a tractor-trailer fire. / There, that's the hard part. I wanted / to tell you straight away so we could / grieve together.”Bright Dead Things examines the chaos that is life, the dangerous thrill of living in a world you know you have to leave one day, and the search to find something that is ultimately disorderly, and marvelous, and ours.”
