Charlie N Holmberg recommends
The Hundredth Queen (2016)
(Hundredth Queen, book 1)
Emily R King
"The Hundredth Queen is a culturally rich tale of both self-discovery and self-mastery."
Daughter of the Siren Queen (2018)
(Daughter of the Pirate King, book 2)
Tricia Levenseller
"[Levenseller's] words will pull you in, and there's no escaping them."
Dark of the West (2018)
(Glass Alliance, book 1)
Joanna Hathaway
"Captivating . . . The prose is elegant, the characters intricate, and the worldbuilding enrapturing."
Foundryside (2018)
(Founders Trilogy, book 1)
Robert Jackson Bennett
"Bennett spins a marvelous tale reminiscent of Sanderson. Foundryside is a gripping story with clever characters, intriguing plot, and spectacular worldbuilding."
Navigating The Stars (2018)
(Sentinels of the Galaxy, book 1)
Maria V Snyder
"I LOVED this book [Navigating the Stars]! Normally sci-fi isn't my first choice of tea, but I got sucked into this one really quickly. Snyder foreshadows things SO well, and I was routing for just about every character I met...I think this is Snyder's most clever book to date and I can't wait to continue the series!"
Lord of Secrets (2019)
(Empty Gods, book 1)
Breanna Teintze
"I loved it! It surprised me many times . . . Gray is relatable, sympathetic, and wholly likeable, and the rest of the cast was endearing. And the magic! It was a perfect mix of traditional and new. A fascinating take, really."
Ink & Sigil (2020)
(Ink & Sigil, book 1)
Kevin Hearne
"Kevin Hearne’s Ink & Sigil is a novel that will transport you right into the Scottish realm of fey and fairies and have you thinking the ‘other’ is real. The magic is both familiar and new, believable and extraordinary. I especially liked the curse on the main character. Between the worldbuilding and the clever prose, this one is worth a read."
Song of the Forever Rains (2021)
(Mousai, book 1)
E J Mellow
"It’s so easy to lose yourself in Mellow’s evocative and engaging prose. Song of the Forever Rains blends excellent world building, wonderful character dynamics, and slow burn romance. I’m already looking forward to the sequel."
