Victoria Aveyard recommends
Illuminae (2015)
(Illuminae Files, book 1)
Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
"Not only is ILLUMINAE a twisting, heart-pounding story moving at the speed of light, but it is a truly beautiful novel that redefines the form. I have never read anything like it. And it certainly filled the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA shaped hole in my heart."
Passenger (2016)
(Passenger, book 1)
Alexandra Bracken
"I was truly transported through this novel, a willing passenger pulled through its pages alongside riveting, romantic characters and an immense world with no end in sight. Fans of Outlander will see so much of Claire in Etta, who holds a smart and headstrong lens to history. I can't wait to voyage through the next volume."
The Darkest Corners (2016)
Kara Thomas
"Gripping from start to finish, The Darkest Corners took me into an underbelly I didn't know existed, with twists that left me shocked and racing forward to get to the end."
A Shadow Bright and Burning (2016)
(Kingdom On Fire, book 1)
Jessica Cluess
"Vivid characters, terrifying monsters, and world building as deep and dark as the ocean."
Replica (2016)
(Replica , book 1)
Lauren Oliver
"Electric, heartbreaking, pulse-pounding, and timely, REPLICA is a riveting two-for-one. Two complex heroines, two puzzling mysteries, two weaving adventures, all in one astounding novel."
Nemesis (2017)
(Project Nemesis, book 1)
Brendan Reichs
"Addictive as a puzzle, moving with breakneck speed, Nemesis had me guessing until the very end. Try to predict what Nemesis is. I dare you."
The Cruel Prince (2018)
(Folk of the Air, book 1)
Holly Black
"I require book two immediately. Holly Black is the Faerie Queen."
Bloodwitch (2019)
(Witchlands, book 3)
Susan Dennard
"Worldbuilding after my own heart. It's so good it's intimidating."
The Priory of the Orange Tree (2019)
(Roots of Chaos, book 1)
Samantha Shannon
"The Priory of the Orange Tree is a brilliant, daring, and devastating jewel. Samantha Shannon has crafted an incredible world full of depth and danger, with characters I would follow to the ends of the earth. It was a privilege to read, and I'm in awe of her talent. I can't wait for the rest of the world to experience this book."
