In the wake
of a lost messiah, an oppressed religious sect known as ‘the singers of Oros’
are targeted by those in power. A lone singer calling himself Runo works
tirelessly to revive the faith of his people by any means necessary. Even if it
leads to bloody experiments, and cold-hearted manipulation. A young slave named
Cai is called on by a philosopher to aid in a catalogue of the wealthiest
families in Grecuria, starting with the owner of the library where he works. On
his journey he must confront a past that isn’t his own. Lastly, Sailing on a
sky ship surrounded by merchants, Mele Amahki was given passage to begin a new
life. However, everything changes when their pink sky turns blue, and they find
themselves in a new, unexpected world where things are much the same as back
home, except her people do not exist. She finds herself thrust into positions
of power, entirely unsure of what is best for her crew. Knowledge, religion,
power, and blood run through the veins of the Grecurian islands. But through
three headstrong individuals, the veins will be cut, and darkness will stain

Mele bristled, but tempered herself with a glance to
Akamai, finding his eyes staring dead into hers. To her surprise, he tapped his
lips. A gesture on a list he wrote. It meant she was allowed to speak freely.
Mele burst from her seat and pressed her hands into the table. “Lili Mele? I am not the one who sold
myself to the council of nobles in exchange for a good word with the emperor.
Don’t fool yourself, Lili Takaahae,
this is not the world we used to live in, and I am the most valuable asset you
sniveling council of cowards has. What choice is there but to wait for now? Min

drained his stores far lower than any of ours. Now I’m begging to return to our
plans for when the search parties return. My brain has been decaying with every
syllable that exits your mouth.”
About Paul Carver Williams:
An LGBTQ, Black-Latino young adult with an eclectic taste in
music, Paul Williams has struggled with his identity, eventually leading to
mental illness. However, with support from his siblings, he gained new
confidence to express his inner emotions through art and writing. At age
seventeen, he published his first book. In 2018, along with his friend, Icesis
Street, Paul won the technology Student Association (TSA) 1st place State award
for Children's storybooks. He is now working endlessly to carve a place for himself
among the creative professionals and pave the way for other talented ‘students’
of art and literature.
In his newest book, Shadow of Hades, Williams reveals themes of grief, often what we commonly associate with death. He hopes readers are moved to examine their lives on a smaller scale, feel invited to empathize with all aspects of the world and see the magical playground that is our shared universe. The world seemed uniquely grim at the time Williams wrote Shadow of Hades, and that darkness is nuanced in the characters, however, he still provides a glimmer of hope to the readers for a world that desperately needs it and that we should all keep close to our hearts.
