The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep (2019)
H G Parry
"If you've ever checked the backs of your wardrobe for snow and lamp-light -- if you've ever longed to visit Pemberley House or 221B Baker Street, to battle the Jabberwock or wander through a fictional London fog -- this book belongs to you. It's a star-studded literary tour and a tangled mystery and a reflection on reading itself; it's a pure delight."

Unnatural Magic (2019)
C M Waggoner
"I didn't think you could fit so many things I loved into one book--tough-talking lady-trolls and cowardly captains, true love and found families, Holmesian hijinks and gender politics--but C.M. Waggoner made it look easy. Unnatural Magic is a raucous, indulgent delight."

The Unspoken Name (2020)
(Serpent Gates, book 1)
A K Larkwood
"Takes all the tropes of fantasy – orcs and epic quests, dead gods and undead souls, daring rescues and last-second escapes – and spins them into something wild and new. A dizzy, delicious debut."
thumb
You Let Me In (2020)
Camilla Bruce
"Haunting, and harrowing, You Let Me In is the kind of fairy tale that keeps you up at night because the monsters are real. I couldn't look away."
thumb
Mexican Gothic (2020)
Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"The subversive, seductive, satisfying haunted house story I didn’t know I needed . . . I genuinely couldn’t put it down."
thumb
Flyaway (2020)
Kathleen Jennings
"hirley Jackson Down Under: a brooding, bruising fairy tale about blood and history and sharp-toothed things waiting in the woods. I loved it."
thumb
Harrow the Ninth (2020)
(Locked Tomb, book 2)
Tamsyn Muir
"To read Harrow the Ninth is to enter a labyrinth haunted by loss and sacrifice and a truly top-tier selection of memes. But don't bother with breadcrumbs or red threads - you won't ever want to leave."
thumb
The Bone Shard Daughter (2020)
(Drowning Empire, book 1)
Andrea Stewart
"Epic fantasy at its most human and heartfelt."
thumb
The Midnight Bargain (2020)
C L Polk
"Smart, sexy, and sincere, The Midnight Bargain is an alter-Regency romance with fantastical magic and very real teeth."
thumb
A Master of Djinn (2021)
(Dead Djinn Universe, book 1)
P Djèlí Clark
"A Master of Djinn is everything you might expect from Clark: cinematic action, a radical reimagining of real history, and magic on every page. I loved it."
thumb
The Chosen and the Beautiful (2021)
Nghi Vo
"The Chosen and the Beautiful is a subversive, sexy, atmospheric, sweltering, gin-soaked, Hell-haunted vision of Gatsby's New York, with prose that will pull you under. I loved it."
thumb
For the Wolf (2021)
(Wilderwood, book 1)
Hannah Whitten
"Atmospheric, folkloric, and half-familiar. If you ever wished Beauty and the Beast had more eldritch forest monsters and political machinations, this is the romance for you."
thumb
The Jasmine Throne (2021)
(Burning Kingdoms, book 1)
Tasha Suri
"An intimate, complex, magical study of empire and the people caught in its bloody teeth. I loved it."
thumb
The Wolf and the Woodsman (2021)
Ava Reid
"Gorgeously written and grimly real, The Wolf and the Woodsman quite literally took my breath away. It has the unsettling-but-compelling gore of Henderson's The Year of the Witching, the folkloric lilt of The Bear and the Nightingale, and the moral complexity of Seeing Like a State. I'm obsessed."
thumb
She Who Became the Sun (2021)
(Radiant Emperor, book 1)
Shelley Parker-Chan
"She Who Became the Sun is epic, tragic, and gorgeous. It will wreck you, and you will be grateful."
