Ned Beauman recommends

The Last Kings of Sark (2013)
Rosa Rankin-Gee
"Funny, vivid, bittersweet."

Daughters of the Wild (2020)
Natalka Burian
"With utter believability Daughters of the Wild brings to life a whole kingdom of grimy, shamanist Virginia Gothic that exists just a short hitchhike away from our contemporary world. Keep your wits about you as you step across the border - but don't delay too long, because revolution is already stirring in Natalka Burian's spellbinding debut."
