Guy Fawkes’s son must join his father’s plot to kill the king if he’s to survive the plague overtaking his body in this reimagined fantastical history of the Gunpowder Plot. Remember, remember the fifth of November.
In 17th-century London, two forces rule the people: the color powers and the Stone Plague. Brown masks can manipulate wood. Black masks control the night. And red masks . . . well, red is the color of blood.
Thomas Fawkes needs a gray mask so he can remove the stone that has invaded his body and will ultimately take his life. But when he fails his color test, his only hope is to track down his father, the infamous Guy Fawkes, and demand his color mask.
But his father has other plans: to kill the king.
Thomas must join forces with his father if he wants to save his own life. When his errands for the cause bring him time and again to Emma Areben, a former classmate, he is exposed to a whole new brand of magic.
Emma doesn’t control just one color—she controls them all.
And she wants to show Thomas the full power of color magic, but it goes against everything his father is fighting for.
If Thomas sides with his father, he could save his own life. But it would destroy Emma and her family. To save one, he must sacrifice the other
No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.

Naomi is the central character in the book of Ruth, but few books focus on her and retell her story from start to finish.
This book is different.
Her husband died, then her two sons. She is in shock. What she endures after that is worse than anyone can imagine. But can she recover and experience restoration? A kind and loving mother-in-law, she inspired great loyalty in her two daughters-in-law, both of whom she cared for, yet were not from Naomi’s birth land of Israel.
If we miss Naomi’s part in this remarkable account, then we overlook something of immense importance, for she played a major role in bringing about one of the greatest and most unlikely love stories of all time – the union between an Israelite called Boaz and a Moabitess named Ruth.
A must-read for anyone who has suffered significant loss and desires to recover all.
