Fonda Lee recommends
Rosewater (2016)
(Wormwood Trilogy, book 1)
Tade Thompson
"A strange and unsettling story of psychics, conspiracy, and alien invasion unlike anything I've read before. Masterfully constructed, brimming with ideas and slowly unfolding mystery, Rosewater hurt my brain in the best of ways."
Nyxia (2017)
(Nyxia Triad, book 1)
Scott Reintgen
"With a vivid cast of characters, relentless pacing, and layers ofmystery, Reintgen hits all the right buttons to craft an addictive pageturner."
The Poppy War (2018)
(Poppy War, book 1)
R F Kuang
"In THE POPPY WAR, R.F. Kuang draws on history and myth to tell a relentlessly unforgiving story of war, vengeance, power and madness, with larger-than-life characters that evoke sympathy and rouse terror. Brace yourself."
Annex (2018)
(Violet Wars, book 1)
Rich Larson
"A thrilling and imaginative entry into the alien invasion genre with two fierce and desperate young protagonists you won't be able to stop rooting for."
Steel Crow Saga (2019)
Paul Krueger
"Pokémon combined with Avatar: The Last Airbender . . . clever, stylish, and gloriously fun."
The Year of the Witching (2020)
(Bethel, book 1)
Alexis Henderson
"Creepy, compelling, and compulsively readable, The Year of the Witching blends the terror of the supernatural with the all-too-recognizable human evils of power and dogma."
Black Water Sister (2021)
Zen Cho
"Ghosts, gods, and supernatural vengeance collide in vividly-depicted modern day Malaysia to create a contemporary fantasy story that's full of voice and heart. At turns suspenseful, poignant and hilarious, Black Water Sister is an addictive tale of personal identity, family secrets, and culture clash."
The All-Consuming World (2021)
Cassandra Khaw
"Cassandra Khaw wields words like a butcher’s knife—with expert grace and blunt violence. The All-Consuming World is a lean story of traumatized near-immortal ex-mercenaries, ancient AI warships, and mind-bending biotech. It’s relentless, profane, and weird—and I mean that in a good way."
In the Shadow of Lightning (2022)
(Glass Immortals, book 1)
Brian McClellan
"Powerful rival families, murderous conspiracies, epic battles, larger-than-life characters, and magic."
The Sleepless (2022)
Victor Manibo
"Move over, Minority Report. Victor Manibo's The Sleepless has everything I want in a near-future whodunit: an irresistible 'what if' premise, a twisty and desperate murder investigation, and a razor-sharp examination of the chillingly recognizable dark side of a seemingly bright future. The Sleepless delivers on its promise; I could not close my eyes."
