A Letter to the Luminous Deep (2024)
(Sunken Archive, book 1)
Sylvie Cathrall
"A Letter to the Luminous Deep is like nothing I've read before. The heartfelt intimacy of the epistolary narrative, juxtaposed with the magnificent oceanic world-building, results in a novel that is at once deeply human and mind-bogglingly imaginative. Both the setting and the story are exquisite, but it was the lovingly crafted voices of the characters that kept me hooked from beginning to end."
Happy Medium (2024)
Sarah Adler
"With voicey narration and whip-smart humor, Sarah Adler has concocted a delightfully original screwball romcom. This book had me at 'fake medium helps a goat farmer with a ghost problem' - yes, please, and thank you."
Of Light and Shadow (2023)
Tanaz Bhathena
"With its deep-dive world-building, complex characters, and energetic storyline, Of Light and Shadow delivers a ragingly good read. Come for the luscious, historically-inspired setting and stay for the pitch-perfect emotional journey of Roshan and Navin."
