Here are the New Arrivals In March 2022 At Chapters Online Bookstore In Pakistan:
1. The Girl Who Drank The Moon
Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.
One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna's thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge--with dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth's surface. And the woman with the Tiger's heart is on the prowl . . .

A mujahid's child with his Christian lover is being brought up by a Hindu vegetable vendor.

The first and second wives of a businessman hatch a diabolic plot to prevent their husband from taking a new wife. A painter's unusual bond with his dead mother plays havoc with his personal life.
The characters in this collection of stories range from feudal landowners and a conscience-stricken talib to metropolitan beggars, frustrated housewives and women defiantly striking out on their own.
