David Anthony Durham recommends
No Return (2013)
(Jeroun, book 1)
Zachary Jernigan
"A visionary, violent, sexually charged, mystical novel."
Stolen Beauty (2017)
Laurie Lico Albanese
"Stolen Beauty is one of those rare, captivating novels that flies us through time, transports us across continents and oceans and challenges us to imagine the unimaginable, to reckon with the cruel forces of history and to marvel at the perseverance of the human spirit in the face of it."
The Rage of Dragons (2017)
(Burning , book 1)
Evan Winter
"Wow. This book hits the ground with stunning action and danger, and it barely lets up as the pages fly by. I loved the African-influence culture, the unique use of dragons and demons, the complex martial and class hierarchy, and it has a magic system unlike anything I've seen before. What a terrific set up for a series!"
Nazare (2021)
JJ Amaworo Wilson
"Nazaré brings to mind the work of Jorge Amado, Louis de Bernieres, Alejo Carpentier, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Ngugi wa Thiong'o. But it's no imitation. JJ Amaworo Wilson is a topnotch novelist in his own right. I fell in love with his troubled city, its eclectic characters with their unlikely alliances, comedic turns, bursts of magic, and with the depth and nuance of a community rising against tyranny and corruption."
The Bruising of Qilwa (2022)
Naseem Jamnia
"Naseem Jamnia is a bold, visionary writer, and The Bruising of Qilwa makes for a superb introduction to their nuanced and evocative Persian-inspired fantasy. The good news is that there are many more brilliant novels already in this writer's literary quiver. Get ready for them; they're coming! Naseem is fierce and dangerous--in all the best ways."
