Caribbean beaches. Relationship sagas. Mysterious intentions. Super-advanced aliens. The perfect summer read. From debut sci-fi novelist Cadwell Turnbull – named by The Verge as “a rising star in the science fiction and fantasy world,” comes The Lesson – and we want to send you a copy!
An alien ship rests over Water Island. For five years the people of the US Virgin Islands have lived with the Ynaa, a race of superadvanced aliens on a research mission they will not fully disclose.
They are benevolent in many ways but meet any act of aggression with disproportional wrath. This has led to a strained relationship between the Ynaa and the local Virgin Islanders and a peace that cannot last.
A year after the death of a young boy at the hands of an Ynaa, three families find themselves at the center of the inevitable conflict, witness and victim to events that will touch everyone and teach a terrible lesson.
