Mankell, Henning  
A Treacherous Paradise
1905: At nineteen, Hanna Renstrom leaves Sweden to seek a better life. But none of her hopes - or fears - prepares her for the life she will lead. Before long, she finds herself a widow twice over, and the owner of a bordello in Portuguese East Africa, where colonialism and white supremacy rule. She is isolated within society by her profession and her sex, and, among the bordello's black prostitutes, by her color. Over the next several years, she wrestles with loneliness, and with the racism she's meant to adopt unthinkingly. As her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the prostitutes, she will make a decision that defies every expectation society has of her, as well as those she has of herself.

McClellan, Brian  
Powder Mage #1: Promise of Blood
Field Marshal Tamas' coup against his king sent corrupt aristocrats to the guillotine and brought bread to the starving. But it also provoked war with the Nine Nations, internal attacks by royalist fanatics, and a scramble for money and power by his supposed allies: the Church, workers unions, and mercenary forces. Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail. As attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about old peasant legends, about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should.
