Suzy McKee Charnas recommends
Sisters of the Raven (2002)
(Sisters of the Raven, book 1)
Barbara Hambly
"Smart, thoughtful ... keenly imagined ... vividly convincing."
The Fall of the Kings (2002)
(Swords of Riverside, book 3)
Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman
"Attractive characters, realistically enmeshed in social, political, and personal concerns... realized with a robust depth and realism."
Binding (2014)
(Moon Wolf, book 2)
Carol Wolf
"The story moves, like its protagonist, boldly, unhampered by any emo blithering, to an unusual and satisfying conclusion. I hope there's more coming!"
Roadsouls (2016)
Betsy James
"If you long for a fantasy world that your senses could live this book...vivid and earthy."
Can't Find My Way Home (2022)
Gwynne Garfinkle
"Writing a really good ghost story is a lot harder than it looks. But Garfinkle pulls it off with elan and produces a wonderful story about lives unlived, for one reason or another, shifting perspectives, what (if anything) we owe our dead, and how we reflect each other, hold each other back, and provide the take-off for others' sprints into maturity. There's also some tasty detail about the lives of working actors on a soap-opera gravy train, that as a film and theater enthusiast, I found delightful."
