The Infinity Courts (2021)
(Infinity Courts, book 1)
Akemi Dawn Bowman
"The Infinity Courts walks that glorious knife's edge between science fiction and fantasy, balanced at all times by Akemi Dawn Bowman's deep understanding of characters and relationships. The layered conflicts between humanity and technology and reality and perception kept me up at night. A fascinating story about survival in the afterlife."

Blood Like Magic (2021)
Liselle Sambury
"Liselle Sambury builds a world not far from our own, where blood is both weapon and salvation. Blood Like Magic is an intoxicating, skillful blend of science fiction and fantasy that reads like an enthralling dream. Poignant, smart, and wholly unique. An ode to the spirits of Black women, this novel demands that the future never forget the enduring power of family or the long, sharp blade of history. A bold, magical debut full of heart, and an author to watch!"

So Many Beginnings (2021)
(Remixed Classics, book 2)
Bethany C Morrow
"Bethany C. Morrow's prose is a sharpened blade in a practiced hand, cutting to the core of our nation's history. So Many Beginnings' reckonings with race reverberate across time to challenge not just the stories we've been told, but the voices who have told them. A devastatingly precise reimagining and a joyful celebration of sisterhood. A narrative about four young women who unreservedly deserve the world, and a balm for wounds to Black lives and liberty."
