The Queen of the Night Summary:

This large Old Babylonian plaque, found in southern Iraq, was made between 1800 and 1750 B.C., and probably stood in a shrine. Named the 'Queen of the Night', the mysterious figure could be the demoness Lilitu, known in the Bible as Lilith, or a Mesopotamian goddess. She wears the horned headdress characteristic of a Mesopotamian deity and holds two symbols of her divinity - a rod and ring of justice. Her long multi-coloured wings hang downwards, indicating that she is a goddess of the Underworld, and her legs end in the talons of a bird of prey, similar to those of the two owls beside her. This book explores the symbolism and history behind this beautiful and highly unusual clay relief.

Queen of the Night Summary:

A night with the Big Bad Wolf never looked so good. In this dark reimagining of Red Riding Hood, Francis ‘Frankie’ Baxter knows what it means to lose everything. Because once upon a time, she did. And being the oldest daughter of a mafia Don means going nowhere unguarded. Unfortunately for her, even a night out with girlfriends requires she spend time in the vicinity of her former partner-in-crime, and current nemesis, Charlie Morrow. The only man on Earth who seems to delight in pushing every single one of her buttons. Sure, he’s handy in a fight, and yes, trouble seems to find her at every turn, but she barely tolerates him on the best of days. Not that any of it matters when a rival organization, hellbent on a hostile takeover of her father’s territory, comes for her, and she and Charlie are forced to head to the only place no one is brave enough to attack: her grandmother’s house. Five days. An impromptu road trip. Sexual tension so blistering it threatens to scar whoever makes the first move. And it all adds up to a recipe for disaster tastier than anything her Nona could whip up in the kitchen. And with Frankie on her own mission to get to the bottom of what went wrong with her and Charlie all those years ago, it’s a shock to approximately no one that the truth comes pouring out. But unlocking the vault of whispered conversations and previously classified family lore isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Not when her best friend, turned enemy, turned almost lover, is a werewolf who’s been keeping her at arm’s length for her own safety. Of course, when she ends up behind enemy lines, Charlie realizes he’ll burn the whole world down to save her. Absolutely nothing is off the table. Not even becoming the big bad wolf.

Queen of the Night Summary:

Queen of the Night helps readers understand the role and power of the moon in the ancient religions, folklore, and mythology of Ireland and the British isles and then discover how to tap that power in their daily lives. Queen of the Night is a journey into the world of Celtic cosmology, shamanism, and sacred animals, as well as Celtic language, art, and culture, to discover the power and centrality of the moon. Since the earliest times, from stone circles and passage graves to the rites and customs of Druids, the moon has been the symbol of the Goddess and has played a crucial role in worship and celebration. In 13 chapters representing the moon's monthly and annual cycles, NicMhacha tells the story of Celtic moon mythology, as well as touching upon Greek, Hindu, and Norse traditions. Each chapter sets forth the role of the moon in Celtic tradition and culture and includes poetry, quotes, or prayers honoring the moon. At the end of each chapter, she offers meditations, ceremonies, and exercises to help readers connect with the moon and apply its power to their lives. From the world of fairies to bards, seekers, and shamans; from the moon's role in the secret meetings of women spinners to the role of sacred animals and mythic beings, Queen of the Night is a lively, informative, and transformative book for anyone who wants to understand and experience the power of the moon.

Edinburgh Summary:

From the best-selling author of How To Write an Autobiographical Novel, Alexander Chee's award-winning debut is "One of the great queer novels . . . of our time."—Brandon Taylor, GQ Twelve-year-old Fee is a shy Korean-American boy growing up in Maine whose powerful soprano voice wins him a place as section leader of the first sopranos in his local boys choir. But when, on a retreat, Fee discovers how the director treats the boys he makes section leader, he is so ashamed, he says nothing of the abuse, not even when Peter, Fee’s best friend, is in line to be next. The director is eventually arrested, and Fee tries to forgive himself for his silence. But when Peter takes his own life, Fee blames only himself. Years later, after he has carefully pieced a new life together, Fee takes a job at a private school near his hometown. There he meets a young student, Arden, who, to his shock, is the picture of Peter—and the son of his old choir director. Told with “the force of a dream and the heft of a life” (Annie Dillard), this is a haunting, lyrically written debut novel that marked Chee “as a major talent whose career will bear watching” (Publisher’s Weekly).
