Beasts of Prey by Ayana Gray
Lkossa was once a city of magic and splendor. Now, a hundred years after the Rupture scarred the sky and devastated the land and its people, magic is no more than a myth.
Until one night when Koffi, an indentured beastkeeper at the infamous Night Zoo, unexpectedly unleashes a dangerous, untamed power that has been secretly brewing within her for years. She sets into motion a chilling sequence of events that no only upends her whole world but also links her to a complicated stranger with secrets of his own.
As a warrior-in-training for the elite Sons of the Six, Ekon's task is to stop Koffi in her attempt to flee the Night Zoo. Instead, she saves him from the Shetani--the monster that has plagued Lkossa for nearly a century and stalked Ekon's nightmares.
Following their chance encounter with the beast, Koffi and Ekon--each with a hidden agenda--strike a tentative bargain, teaming up to capture the Shetani as a hoped-for solution to their dire circumstances. To do so, they must enter the Greater Jungle, a world steeped in wild, frightening magic and untold dangers. But once the hunt begins, it quickly becomes unclear whether they are the hunters or the hunted.
The start of a stunning and sweeping fantasy series from debut author Ayana Gray, Beasts of Prey is an epic adventure where monsters hide in plain sight and two determined teens must decide whether to fight for what they've always dreamed of--or for each other.
Letters to a Young Athlete by Chris Bosh
Chris Bosh, an eleven-time All-Star, two-time NBA champion, Olympic gold medalist, and the league's Global Ambassador, had his playing days cut short at their prime by a freak medical condition. His extraordinary career ended not at a time of his choosing but "in a doctor's office in the middle of the afternoon." Forced to reckon with how to find meaning to carry forward, he found himself looking back over his path, from a teenager in Dallas who balanced basketball with the high school robotics club to the pinnacle of the NBA and beyond.
Reflecting on all he learned from a long list of basketball legends, from LeBron and Kobe to Pat Riley and Coach K, he saw that his important lessons weren't about basketball so much as the inner game of success--right attitude, right commitment, right flow within a team. Now he shares that journey, giving us a fascinating view from the inside of what greatness feels like and what it takes, formulated as a series of letters to younger people coming up and to all wisdom seekers. A timeless gift for anyone in pursuit of excellence, Letters to a Young Athlete offers a proven path for taming your inner voice and making it your ally, through the challenges of failure and the challenges of success alike.
