What it's about: In Yang's Silkpunk fantasy quartet, children aren't assigned a gender at birth; they come to choose their own when they're ready, eschewing all gendered pronouns and garments until then. Among the residents of this world are twins Akeha and Makoya, children of the Protector, birthed for political gain and sold to the Grand Monastery when they were barely out of the womb. They're thick as thieves, until they find they fall on opposite political lines, with Akeha joining in the rebellion and Mokoya dealing with personal loss by embarking on deadly hunts. Rife with danger, magic, politics, and power, the Tensorate series makes for a fascinating world to get lost in.
*While the four novellas that comprise the series won't be available as a single omnibus until September, if you can't wait, you can grab them individually now, starting with The Black Tides of Heaven or The Red Threads of Fortune. (Yes, either one!)
