Book of the Day - Dispassionate Lies by Eileen Schuh

Although their birth had been violent, the years since had honed their peaks and softened their shoulders. Today, they towered above their people, massive and silent and unmoving. They controlled the rivers and the rainfall, the wind and weather for an entire continent. Basking in their shadows and breathing their air was intimidating.
