There are audio excerpts and then there are awesome audio excerpts. Both are good, but only one can be served up on Unbound Worlds On Air and this Ice Song sample from author Kirsten Imani Kasai is nothing short of sweet!
Kirsten and her brother recorded the parts and put this sample chapter together and we think you’re really going to like this!
Not familiar with Ice Song? Prepare to be transported to a world where environmental degradation and genetic mutation run amok; humans have been distorted into animals and animal bodies cloak a wild humanity. But it is also a world of unexpected beauty and wonder, where kindness and love endure amid the ruins. Alluring, intense, and gorgeously rendered, Ice Song is a remarkable debut by a fiercely original new writer.
By the way, Kirsten wants you to swing by and say hello sometime. Going to be in San Fran in September? Why not hang out with Kirsten Imani Kasai and a few of her author-friends for a good cause? Here are the details:

About Ice Song
Sorykah Minuit is a scholar, an engineer, and the sole woman aboard an ice-drilling submarine in the frozen land of the Sigue. What no one knows is that she is also a Trader: one who can switch genders suddenly, a rare corporeal deviance universally met with fascination and superstition and all too often punished by harassment or death.
Sorykah’s infant twins, Leander and Ayeda, have inherited their mother’s Trader genes. When a wealthy, reclusive madman known as the Collector abducts the babies to use in his dreadful experiments, Sorykah and her male alter-ego, Soryk, must cross icy wastes and a primeval forest to get them back. Complicating the dangerous journey is the fact that Sorykah and Soryk do not share memories: Each disorienting transformation is like awakening with a jolt from a deep and dreamless sleep.Source: Ice Song | RandomHouse.com
