Marie Brennan recommends
The Queen's Bastard (2008)
(Inheritors' Cycle, book 1)
C E Murphy
"C. E. Murphy vividly reimagines Renaissance Europe as a world both familiar and strange. Filled with intrigue and betrayal, her story is a chess game with six of seven sides, and I look forward to seeing what the next moves are."
The Dragons of Heaven (2015)
(Missy Masters, book 1)
Alyc Helms
"A hell of a lot of fun."
Lady of Magick (2015)
(Noctis Magicae, book 2)
Sylvia Izzo Hunter
"The history of her world is not the usual stuff."
A Daughter of No Nation (2015)
(Stormwrack, book 2)
A M Dellamonica
"Dellamonica's tale in one of intrigue and power struggles, jealousy and competition, culture shock and the alienation of discovering you family is not what you thought."
The Absconded Ambassador (2016)
(Genrenauts, book 2)
Michael R Underwood
"Catnip for genre geeks."
Weave a Circle Round (2017)
Kari Maaren
"Reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones, what starts out as the simple tale of some wacky neighbors soon takes a far more epic turn, as Maaren leads you deep into the heart of her own fascinating mythology. Maaren understands the power of stories and the danger of them, too."
The Priory of the Orange Tree (2019)
Samantha Shannon
"An astonishing achievement. The roots of Shannon's world lie in real history, but its branches stretch far into the imagination. Many authors can paint different names onto familiar concepts; Shannon goes further, building new religions and histories and conflicts, with all the rich detail necessary to bring them to life."
