Facing aliens, demons, curses and armies, twelve unstoppable heroes must find the strength to defeat their enemies with wit, weapons and a warrior’s heart.
WARRIOR is a short-story collection consisting of 12 science-fiction and fantasy stories. They all feature exciting plots, dangerous monsters, unexpected twists and – above all else – fierce heroes.
These heroes all happen to identify within the LGBTQIA spectrum, but that is not the main focus of their stories. It’s simply part of their lives and personalities – just like it is in real life.
So why is this book important? Because it’s hard to grow up with questions about your identity and part of the challenge is struggling to find heroes that are “just like you”. We believe that all children, teenagers and young adults deserve to find characters they can identify with.
Genre: Science Fiction / Fantasy
As this is a collection, a wide range of genders, sexualities, romantic orientations, ethnicities and abilities are included. The vast majority of the stories are #ownvoices, and each story has a trigger warning listed at the front of the collection, so you can check individual stories for their content.
Ending: All stories have happy endings! The collection was very conscious of harmful tropes like bury your gays, and made sure this collection contains inspirational, happy and satisfying endings only.
