The Chainbreakers' War freed the norren. Won independence for Narashtovik. And drove a rift between Dante and Blays that may never be mended. After three years of wandering, Blays has returned to Gask. Blaming its king for the loss of his love, Lira, he poses as a merchant and infiltrates the enemy nobility. His goal is to bankrupt the kingdom and force its ruler from the throne. But his scheme is ruined when Dante arrives and outs him to the king. In desperation, Blays flees to the one place Dante can't follow: the forbidden Pocket Cove. There, he intends to learn whatever secrets have kept its people hidden for centuries. Meanwhile, Dante is called back to Narashtovik. Strange lights have been seen in the nearby Wodun Mountains. His investigation reveals the lights herald the return of the Black Star, a long-lost item capable of making wishes real. With it, Dante plans to make himself immortal. To find it, he must cross the Woduns into the mysterious country of Weslee. But there are others vying for the Black Star—and if they find it first, they will use it to scour Narashtovik from the earth. THE BLACK STAR is the final book in an epic fantasy trilogy.

“The same rebellion, the same impatience, the same anger that exists in the hearts of the dark people in Africa and Asia,” Malcolm X declared in a 1962 speech, “is existing in the hearts and minds of 20 million black people in this country who have been just as thoroughly colonized as the people in Africa and Asia.” Four decades later, the hip-hop artist Talib Kweli gave voice to a similar Pan-African sentiment in the song “K.O.S. (Determination)”: “The African diaspora represents strength in numbers, a giant can't slumber forever.” Linking discontent and unrest in Harlem and Los Angeles to anticolonial revolution in Algeria, Egypt, and elsewhere, Black leaders in the United States have frequently looked to the anti-imperialist movements and antiracist rhetoric of the Muslim Third World for inspiration. In Black Star, Crescent Moon, Sohail Daulatzai maps the rich, shared history between Black Muslims, Black radicals, and the Muslim Third World, showing how Black artists and activists imagined themselves not as national minorities but as part of a global majority, connected to larger communities of resistance. Daulatzai traces these interactions and alliances from the Civil Rights movement and the Black Power era to the “War on Terror,” placing them within a broader framework of American imperialism, Black identity, and the global nature of white oppression. From Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali to contemporary artists and activists like Rakim and Mos Def,Black Star, Crescent Moon reveals how Muslim resistance to imperialism came to occupy a central position within the Black radical imagination, offering a new perspective on the political and cultural history of Black internationalism from the 1950s to the present.

"These short poems boldly combine words and images with extraordinary power, drawing on Samoan language and myth, on dreams and memories, and on the daily life of the poet. The density, complexity, variety, and movement of the lines perfectly express the central motif of the black star, a mysterious force that drives the collection."

Westbrook Washington is a bright 14-year-old African-American boy from Mississippi. He is not worried when his 19-year-old brother, Corey, is shipped off to Iraq with the local National Guard unit "because the war is pretty much over anyway." But West is surprised when he begins receiving letters from Corey who details his experiences in Iraq and his disillusionment with the war. When Corey is killed by a roadside bomb, West is tasked with writing Corey's obituary for the local newspaper. In the meantime, he teams up with Corey's best friend Ray Ray to find the local Army recruiter who talked Corey into joining the Army so they can beat him up. Along the way, swept up in the anger and confusion over his brother's death, Westbrook steals every American flag in town and burns them at an abandoned train yard. When a WWII veteran who lives near the train yard is critically injured by the fire, both boys realize the potential consequences of their actions and come to understand that childhood is behind them. I'm a librarian and wrote this book because I could not find contemporary, meaningful books for young adult boys. I wanted to write a book that dealt with the experience many boys are facing - an older brother who joins the Army and is then immediately sent to war. One day you are a high school kid, the next day you are being shot at in a foreign country for no reason.

In the tradition of Star Wars, a galaxy-hopping space adventure about a galactic kingdom bent on control and the young misfit who must find the power within before it’s too late. Cade Sura holds the future of the galaxy in his hands: the ultimate weapon that will bring total peace. He didn’t ask for it, he doesn’t want it, and there’s no worse choice to wield it in all of space, but if he doesn’t, everyone’s totally screwed. The evil Praxis kingdom is on the cusp of having every star system under its control, and if that happens, there’ll be no contesting their cruel reign. Especially if its fanatical overlord, Ga Halle, manages to capture Cade and snag the all-powerful weapon for herself. Cade can’t hide from Praxis, and he can’t run from the destiny that’s been shoved into his hands. So he only has one option: He has to fight. Cade’s not going to let destiny send him on a suicide run, though. With some help from his friends—rebels and scoundrels alike—Cade’s going to use this weapon to chart a new destiny for the galaxy, and for himself. He just has to do so before everyone around him discovers that he’s a complete and total fraud. Blending the space operatics of Star Wars and the swagger of Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Star Renegades is a galaxy-hopping adventure that blasts its way from seedy spacer bars to sacred temples guarded by deadly creatures—all with a cast of misfit characters who have nowhere to go and nothing to lose.
