Elizabeth Haydon recommends
The God is Not Willing (2021)
(Witness , book 1)
Steven Erikson
"Gripping, fast-moving, delightfully dark, with a masterful and unapologetic brutality reminiscent of George R. R. Martin… Utterly engrossing."
Weave a Circle Round (2017)
Kari Maaren
"Kari Maaren's Weave a Circle Round is a delightful debut sure to enchant young adults and older ones who appreciate their literature. It rings many of the same chimes as The Phantom Tollbooth and A Wrinkle in Time, with a few notes charmingly reminiscent of Monty Python, while singing its own intriguing song. Maaren demonstrates impressive respect for both her characters and her readers, weaving challenging concepts (Kublai Khan?!] into accessible, fun dialogue and narration. I found myself feeling the same excitement I first experienced upon reading time-travel tales long ago, which is a magical thing indeed."
The Darkling Fields of Arvon (2010)
(Legacy of the Stone Harp, book 2)
James G Anderson and Mark Sebanc
"A genuinely thrilling beginning to what is sure to be a resounding epic... a wonderful read..."
