Alix E Harrow recommends
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."
You Let Me In (2020)
"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."
Mexican Gothic (2020)
"The subversive, seductive, satisfying haunted house story I didn’t know I needed . . . I genuinely couldn’t put it down."
"hirley Jackson Down Under: a brooding, bruising fairy tale about blood and history and sharp-toothed things waiting in the woods. I loved it."
Harrow the Ninth (2020)
(Locked Tomb, book 2)
"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."
The Bone Shard Daughter (2020)
(Drowning Empire, book 1)
"Epic fantasy at its most human and heartfelt."
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."
The Jasmine Throne (2021)
(Burning Kingdoms, book 1)
"An intimate, complex, magical study of empire and the people caught in its bloody teeth. I loved it."
