Read an excerpt from Kumasagi, Part 1: Destin

The barge lurched as the oarsmen pushed off from the dock. Najat’s stomach lurched with it, instantly knocking him out of his trance. It was only momentary—he slid back into it easily, as he would a slipped sandal. But the abstract lump in his stomach seemed larger now, more insistent. An odd tingling sensation spiked the fingers of both hands.

Suddenly he Felt the unmistakable, velvety touch of Amala Tebbe’s mind. She hovered around him curiously, having noticed a blip among the divers when the barge launched. It was very unusual for the Kumasagi to be distracted out of such a deep meditative state—Tebbe had trained him herself. Najat ignored her as he ignored his hands and ignored his stomach. If he did not acknowledge them, the pain and Amala Tebbe would surely go away.

In Solgaran’s house, Padir sat with crossed legs while Bal applied extra tari oil to his scarred shoulders and back. Sopan was eager to help, so they let him rub the oil over his father’s arm.

“I want to bring Sopan down there this time,” Padir said.

“No,” Bal said gruffly behind him.

“I want him to see the first flight.”

“I want to go!” Sopan said.

“He can see the second flight, and many more of ‘em after,” Bal said to Padir. “Let’s make sure you survive the first one, right?”

“What does ‘survive’ mean?” Sopan said.

Bal grumbled to himself for letting that slip.

Read an excerpt from Kumasagi, Part 3: Wife

Asta’s consciousness came crashing back to her body on earth. The heat of her own rushing blood and living flesh was so great that melding back with it caused her a moment of pleasure bordering on ecstasy, right there on the Shakti Lake Park bench—no matter that it came on the heels of such terror.

The moment faded, but left her trembling again, this time among the happy chirping of birds and lovely scents of the park’s trees and flowers.

Asta stared down at the sketchbook where it had landed on the path at her feet. She couldn’t move. She couldn’t reach or bend to pick it up.

A distant splashing came to her ears. Suddenly the splashing wasn’t so distant, but quite distinct. She heard a grunt, a thud, and the crashing branches of shrubbery—and then Najat Gampoban stood gasping for breath between her and the sun, dripping water all over her and gripping her shoulders.

“Asta-la! Are you alright?!
