Ruth Emmie Lang teaches us how to find magic in the ordinary
in her magical realism debut Beasts of Extraordinary
Orphaned, raised by wolves, and the proud owner of a horned
pig named Merlin, Weylyn Grey knew he wasnâ€™t like other
people. But when he single-handedly stopped that tornado on
a stormy Christmas day in Oklahoma, he realized just how
different he actually was.
As amazing as these powers may appear, they tend to manifest
themselves at inopportune times and places, jeopardizing not
only his own life, but the life of Mary, the woman he loves.
Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance tells the story
of Weylyn Greyâ€™s life from the perspectives of the people
who knew him, loved him, and even a few who thought he was
just plain weird. Although he doesnâ€™t stay in any of their
lives for long, he leaves each of them with a story to tell:
great storms that evaporate into thin air; fireflies that
make phosphorescent honey; a house filled with spider webs
and the strange man who inhabits it.
There is one story, however, that Weylyn wishes he could
change: his own. But first he has to muster enough courage
to knock on Maryâ€™s front door.
