Short-listed for the 2015 Man Booker Prize The Guardian: The Best Novels of 2015 The Independent: Literary Fiction of the Year 2015 From one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists and Man Booker Prize nominee Sunjeev Sahota—a sweeping, urgent contemporary epic, set against a vast geographical and historical canvas, astonishing for its richness and texture and scope, and for the utter immersiveness of its reading experience. Three young men, and one unforgettable woman, come together in a journey from India to England, where they hope to begin something new—to support their families; to build their futures; to show their worth; to escape the past. They have almost no idea what awaits them. In a dilapidated shared house in Sheffield, Tarlochan, a former rickshaw driver, will say nothing about his life in Bihar. Avtar and Randeep are middle-class boys whose families are slowly sinking into financial ruin, bound together by Avtar’s secret. Randeep, in turn, has a visa wife across town, whose cupboards are full of her husband’s clothes in case the immigration agents surprise her with a visit. She is Narinder, and her story is the most surprising of them all. The Year of the Runaways unfolds over the course of one shattering year in which the destinies of these four characters become irreversibly entwined, a year in which they are forced to rely on one another in ways they never could have foreseen, and in which their hopes of breaking free of the past are decimated by the punishing realities of immigrant life. A novel of extraordinary ambition and authority, about what it means and what it costs to make a new life—about the capaciousness of the human spirit, and the resurrection of tenderness and humanity in the face of unspeakable suffering. From the Hardcover edition.

Shelley and Colin were young and in love. Running away to find meaning in their lives, they never expected to crash land on a blue-water planet known as earth. This is a story about damaged people and recovery. This is a story about earth and outer space. A young couple will seek a new life and adventure, only to be stranded on the earth planet during a time of war. A young man, beaten and humiliated by his family, will rise to repair the offworld spacecraft and allow the young couple to return home. During their travels, a young officer will be betrayed by his captain, simply for the sake of convenience. In some cases, absolute power does corrupt absolutely. And a machine race will find new life and purpose after the harsh manipulations of one single human. The characters may sound familiar, but new possibilities offer a new direction. Colin and Shelley’s two-week voyage will create a lifetime of memories. Written for all ages.

Bright Elves, men and dwarves, unite to defend Orthrund. Tall Sky, while helping a few runaways, is caught off guard by love with a feisty redhead named Melody and her little dragon, Daisy. They become involved with King Aryante's purge of slavery that has far-reaching effects on the country of Aksanda and beyond.
