Editor’s addition: Amber & The Hidden City
There’s a reason this book has appeared on BlackSci-Fi.com before. It’s good and should be checked out. Milton J. Davis’ story tells the tale of Amber Robinson and her quest to the magical world of Marai. As the summary for the story explains, “it’s a story of a girl who discovers her hidden abilities and heritage in a way that surprises and entertains.” This is a perfect addition to any young adult novel collection.
