Coming Sept. 1: “Natural Selection,” an ADAPTATION companion novella
I have exciting news for you! I’ve written an addition to the Adaptation series: a companion digital exclusive novella titled “Natural Selection,” and it’s entirely from Amber Gray’s perspective. It’s coming out on Sept. 1, 2013! Want to know more?
[Spoiler warning for Adaptation!]
Here’s the description:
I was born on Earth, not Kurra. I’m not human, even though I try to be. My people, the Imria, think I’m a little unusual because of that. They call me an Earthsider: as if I’ve crossed a line, chosen a side. Gone native.
Before she met her girlfriend Reese, before she knew the role she would play in the fate of two worlds, Amber was a fifteen-year-old Imrian torn between two identities. Imrian by blood, Amber was forced to hide her true self to pass as human during the time she spent on earth. And even when she returns to Kurra, her human experiences, including first love and heartache, still separate her from her fellow Imrians. But when Amber undergoes kibila, a traditional Imrian coming-of-age ceremony during which Amber will choose her name and identity for the next fifteen years, she will be forced to either accept her role in both worlds or forge her own path.
Malinda Lo’s digital exclusive novella companion to Adaptation and Inheritance takes readers on a journey through Amber’s past, giving fans a glimpse into her life on Kurra and a deeper understanding of one of Adaptation‘s most compelling characters.
This was such an interesting thing to write, because it’s in first person from Amber’s perspective. You can already pre-order it online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iBooks. (It will be ebook only, and not available in print.)
I can’t wait for you to read it!
