Tessa Gratton recommends
A Taste of Gold and Iron (2022)
Alexandra Rowland
"A Taste of Gold and Iron is a slow-burn romance flush with sexy, complicated relationships, founded on the ethics of duty and love. As indulgent and satisfying as your favourite fan fiction."
Kiss & Tell (2022)
Adib Khorram
"For queer readers of every age who've been made to feel like nothing but a dirty word, Kiss & Tell is a brilliant takedown of exploitations of queerness and the policing of teens, filled with heartache, hilarity, friends-for-life, and stadium-sized queer joy."
She Who Became the Sun (2021)
(Radiant Emperor, book 1)
Shelley Parker-Chan
"She Who Became the Sun is an intense and sweeping epic that blurs the lines between rebellion and revenge, between fate and ambition, exposing the inherent violence of gendered ideologies and the traumas they create in ourselves and the world."
These Violent Delights (2020)
(Violent Ends, book 1)
Chloe Gong
"Heady, smart, and vicious, These Violent Delights strikes every note with precision, layering romance and politics into a roaring 20s Shanghai of both monsters and monstrous imperialism."
Crownchasers (2020)
(Crownchasers, book 1)
Rebecca Coffindaffer
"Crownchasers is a sharp, smart, and exhilarating space adventure, filled with intrigue and romance, unique tech and all the cool alien worlds you could wish for!"
The Merciful Crow (2019)
(Merciful Crow, book 1)
Margaret Owen
"The Merciful Crow is an intense, romantic adventure with unforgettable magic and a ferocious heroine I'd gladly follow down a long, dark road."
