In Strangely Wonderful, along with his pirate crew, captain Tomaj Balashazy rules the Madagascar coast from his tropical plantation--a fortress built to defend against the enemies he's made cruising the Indian Ocean. But when the American naturalist Dagny Ravenhurst falls into Balashazy's lagoon during an expedition seeking a dreaded and mystical species of lemur, it spells the end of the temporary peace on the island. Ravenhurst is beholden to the French industrialist Paul Boneaux--who enjoys a monopoly over the island's manufacturing and commerce--and needs his patronage to survive. When the two adversaries, Balashazy and Boneaux, are pitted against each other, the island boils with blood, and only one will emerge triumphant. In The Four Quarters of the World, Abyssinia, 1866. The crazed (some say) but dynamic Christian King of Kings has taken power as Tewodros II. His vision: to reunite Ethiopia under one crown, one God. To that end he moves his massive, gorgeously arrayed army from province to province.But rebellion is continuous and, in the end, he is Emperor of only the remote and inaccessible rock Magdala, where he holds political prisoners, spouses, and relations he's tired of and fifty Europeans. Into the barbaric and breathtaking kingdom comes American adventurer, linguist, and ethnologist, Captain Ravinger Howland. Becoming Tewodros' right-hand man, Ravi is allowed all the privileges of a royal son: concubines, armory, all the raw beef he can eat but not the returned Queen of Sheba. American doctor Delphine Chambliss, Tewodros believes, is the reincarnation of Makeda from who all Abyssinian kings are descended. But even as Ravi begins to question Tewodros' sanity, he falls for the bitterly bereaved Dr. Chambliss. And now, as the kingdom crumbles, Ravi and Tewodros lock horns over the woman in a battle to the death.

From a land you've never heard of comes a story you'll never forget. 1896. In the vast network of the Niger Delta waterways, where palm oil and blood flow from the hinterlands, the ancient kingdom of Benin is under siege. Legendary trader and leopard hunter Brendan Donivan battles to protect his adopted homeland's sacred civilization from the colonial expansion of the British while balancing his commerce with the whiteman's world.

It’s 1828, and life is good for the pirates of Madagascar… Their Captain is the Hungarian Count Tomaj Balashazy, a refugee from the U.S. Navy. Count Balashazy rules the coast from his tropical mansion Barataria, a fortress built against enemies he’s made cruising the Indian Ocean. Bitterly cruel, Tomaj feels guilt at the loss of his family in New Orleans, and he wallows in clouds of opium. When the American naturalist Dagny Ravenhurst falls into Tomaj’s lagoon, it’s the beginning of the end of arcadian bliss on the island. French industrialist Paul Boneaux commands his empire of factories in the central highlands. As the special pet of the psychotic Malagasy Queen Ranavalona, Boneaux enjoys a monopoly over all manufacturing, commerce, and his mistress. Beholden to Boneaux, Dagny and her two brothers need his patronage to survive. Zeke, fiercely protective of Dagny, yearns to start a legitimate trading post. The gentle and guileless geologist Salvatore believes he can make their fortune mining, and falls for the exotic charms of the Pirate Count. Quartermaster Youx struggles to earn the same love Balashazy had for his first quartermaster, killed in battle with Chinese pirates. And sinister ship’s cook Slushy reveals why he was run out of his job as a bootblack boy in New York. Dagny’s joyless scientific heart melts for the poetic nature of the Count, who has promised to deliver her the rare aye-aye monkey. The King dies—or is he murdered?—and the Queen gives free rein to her merciless anti-European impulses. The island runs with blood, and only one world can emerge triumphant. In Madagascar’s utopian paradise, all is… Strangely Wonderful

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017
