S A Chakraborty recommends
The Rage of Dragons (2017)
(Burning , book 1)
Evan Winter
"The Rage of Dragons takes the best parts of epic fantasy and sets them in a refreshing and inventive new world, a gripping tale that makes clear the true cost of war and colonialism with one of the most enthralling hero's journeys I've read."
The Bloodprint (2017)
(Khorasan Archives, book 1)
Ausma Zehanat Khan
"Sweeping its readers up for a fantastical journey across a broken yet beautiful Silk Road, The Bloodprint is extraordinary. The book is wonderfully written; its poetic prose and mix of history, faith, and adventure reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic Odyssey… this time with a pair of women warriors at the helm."

(Ring-Sworn Trilogy, book 1)
Howard Andrew Jones
"A fantastic adventure! Wit and mystery abound in this fast-paced epic across a stunning new world."

Melissa Bashardoust

The Year of the Witching (2020)
Alexis Henderson
"A thrillingly brisk and bracing tale of magic and power, I loved this book. It takes the best tropes of horror and witchcraft and gives them a refreshingly feminist twist."
