The Web of Humanity by Maria Turchin
Genre – historical fiction, women’s fiction, contemporary fiction
Anna Venu of Arizona can be very cunning, perceptive, and witty. She’s going to need every one of those traits to survive the journey she is about to embark on after the accidental discovery of a surprising family secret. Anna departs on a thrilling adventure across Vienna, Paris, and Berlin to unravel a mystery that takes her back to the final blood-soaked days of WWII.
Anna quickly finds herself in over her head when her quest unexpectedly throws her into a modern-day European political conspiracy. When Anna becomes the target, she needs to use all her skills and determination to uncover the truth and stay alive.
Told in a unique storytelling style, this book stretches across several generations and time periods with unexpected turns and events throughout.
Alongside Anna, readers are forced to question the psychological need for aggression, racism, the abuse of power, and the unstoppable human drive for war. This book urges readers to discover the stories of their own lineage while echoing that we are all connected through the Web of Humanity, our only hope for survival.

Page Count – 302 pages
Dhani Karim was a ruthless assassin with only one purpose in life: to eliminate the crime lords, child slavers and insurgents lurking on the Empire’s far-flung edges. Until the night she was betrayed and framed for a murder she didn’t commit…
Expelled from the Imperial Assassins for her alleged crimes, Dhani is granted one chance at redemption – spend two years as a lowly covert operative and earn her right to rejoin the Assassins. Exiled to a remote desert city, Dhani is partnered with Parvan Gorshayik, a short-tempered, difficult man struggling with his own demons.
Given just three days to locate a person known only as Scythe, Dhani knows their handler is setting them up to fail. And failure carries a high price…
Death.
Battling against magic-wielding foes, sinister cults, and their own bitter differences, Dhani and Parvan’s mission uncovers a web of secrets and lies, and they soon face an impossible decision: defy their orders, risking court-martial and execution…
Or gamble with thousands of innocent lives by turning their back on a deadly conspiracy.

Mina’s family told her to write her own bio, something about how she doesn’t like dark gritty superhero movies (she doesn’t) or tales of the dystopian future, but really, there isn’t very much more to say. She’s a profoundly boring young adult, and a good Scottish girl who wants to do a job that won’t suck out her soul, help her parents to retire, and one day buy her mother a smart car like she always wanted.
