City of Hooks and Scars is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of City of Hooks and Scars
THE PARK AROUND MIRACLE LAKE IS transformed. Legacy, those descended from a magical lineage and carry the Seed mark on their wrists, are everywhere, in satin coats, leather jackets studded with sequins and silver and gold-colored beads, decked out in heeled boots and bright hair.

No one has ever seen anything like it.The spectators cuddle into each other, watching as buildings are set aflame, as officers scatter trying to take cove
