Embers of War (2018)

Blackfish City (2018)
Sam J Miller
"Miller gives us an incisive and beautifully written story of love, revenge, and the power (and failure) of family in a scarily plausible future. Blackfish City simmers with menace and heartache, suspense and wonder. Plus, it has lots of action and a great cast of characters. Not to mention an orca and a polar bear!"
A Memory Called Empire (2019)
(Teixcalaan, book 1)
"A Memory Called Empire perfectly balances action and intrigue with matters of empire and identity. All around brilliant space opera, I absolutely love it."

(Mkalis Cycle, book 1)

This Is How You Lose the Time War (2019)
Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
"Lyrical and vivid and bittersweet. An absolutely lovely read from two talented writers."
A Song for a New Day (2019)
"A compelling book about the importance of music--and any sort of art--in a world where it seems like the least essential thing. This is an expertly drawn post-catastrophe world peopled by compassionately written characters."
Unconquerable Sun (2020)
(Sun Chronicles, book 1)
"Non-stop action! Space battles! Intrigue! This is the kind of space opera that I love best."
Winter's Orbit (2021)
"Delightful! Winter's Orbit is a chilling account of a dark past wrapped in the warm blanket of a promising future. It was such a pleasure to read."
January Fifteenth (2022)
"Rachel's stories are super-smart and gorgeously written. It's [a short blurb], but it has the virtue of being true."
