John Grant recommends
The Duke in His Castle (2008)
Vera Nazarian
"Vera Nazarian is a writer seemingly so full of story that it just comes bubbling uncontrollably out of her... The Duke in his Castle shows her at the peak of her form in a deceptively simple tale that probes the nature of life and death, of power and succumbing, and ultimately of good and both the evils-active evil and the evil born from apathy."
The Stonecutter (2014)
(Company of Heroes, book 1)
Ron Miller
"The tale as a whole is one that Robert Jordan might well have told at five times the length and with only one fifth of the wit and fun."
