Cassandra Khaw recommends
No One Will Come Back For Us (2023)
Premee Mohamed
"Mesmeric, beautifully human, limned with a heart-broken tenderness even in its darkest moments."
The Twice-Drowned Saint (2023)
C S E Cooney
"Many have spoken about how angels can be both terrifying yet beautiful, but few have successfully captured the idea well-until The Twice-Drowned Saint, at least. A sumptuous, saw-toothed read, it is a jewel box of a novel, glittering with a thousand details and a bright longing we're all familiar with, this want for a place better than we're in now."
Leech (2022)
Hiron Ennes
"I didn't know a book could perfectly convey the concept of a distributed intelligence, alive and aware of each of its proxies, but Leech is proof anything is possible in good hands."
What Moves the Dead (2022)
(Sworn Soldier, book 1)
T Kingfisher
"A deeply, unsettling examination of what sometimes goes on behind polite smiles and courteous speech."
Glitterati (2022)
Oliver K Langmead
"Glitterati is a strange, bright wonder of a book that begins as a playful satirization of the world of couture and ends as a finely-cut lens into the habits of the modern world."
Manhunt (2022)
Gretchen Felker-Martin
"It's beautifully written, a barbed hook that will dig deep and split you open."
