De stem van de zee: Eiland in de mist 1

 Ik ben in de zee geboren.

In de nacht dat mama moest bevallen, rolden de golven als reuzen naar het strand en krijste mijn moeder als de meeuwen. Ze riep net zo lang om de zee tot mijn vader er gehoor aan gaf en haar zwoegende lichaam in zijn armen naar buiten droeg. Daar lag ze in een witte jurk op haar rug in de modder, haar benen wijd in de branding. De golven trokken me naar buiten. Voordat mijn vader me vast kon grijpen, had ik al kennis gemaakt met het zilte water.

Nimue kent haar moeder slechts uit verhalen. Na een allesverwoestende storm verlaat ze haar vissersdorp om samen met haar broertje Arthur naar haar op zoek te gaan. In een continent waar de Zwarte Griep steeds meer mensen het leven kost, reist Nimue haar familiegeschiedenis achterna in de hoop dat het zal leiden naar hun moeder. Tijdens haar tocht vertoont een in flarden mist gehulde gestalte zich steeds weer aan haar. Waarom wordt ze door hem achtervolgd? En welke connectie hebben Nimue en Arthur met de Andere Wereld, de sfeer van de geesten?

 What can you do when your whole life turns out to be based on lies? When the society you live in isn’t as good and grand as people want you to believe? For Emma, Leia, and Justa, there is only one way to survive – by being defiant.

Three young adult authors from the Netherlands (Mara Li, Jen Minkman, and Lis Lucassen) use their storytelling talents to explore worlds where nothing is as it seems and no one is truly safe.

The Red Messenger

Some things are better left unsaid – or unquestioned.

When Emma Petrova finds a mysterious note in the pocket of a coat that once belonged to her twin sister Sophia, the words written on it won’t leave her alone: “The Angel has come”. But angels are a part of forbidden folklore, remnants of the old Jewish religion that was banned by the all-powerful Realm long ago. Sophia had secrets she never shared with Emma, and those secrets demand to be unraveled. Now, Emma’s quest will change her world forever.

The Island

Leia lives on the Island, where children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are only ten years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. No one wants to – because the Fools living in the west, behind the wall, are deluded and believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors.

But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true?

Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool?

The Tribunal

When Justa is summoned for jury duty in the Tribunal, she is sure of one thing: she needs to stick to the rules in order to get her best friend’s murderer convicted. In her society, jurisdiction is infallible. The choice ahead of her seems clear – but soon, Justa is forced to choose between justice and lies, between knowledge and trust. Will she use her head over her heart, or will Aron, the accused who dares to look at her with such disdain in his eyes, change her world for good?
