Karen Lord recommends

Black Water Sister (2021)
Zen Cho
"Told with love and humour, Black Water Sister is both ode and accusation to all the ties that bind—to family, duty and home. Thrilling and terrifying, honest and hopeful, this may be Zen Cho's best work yet."

The Queens of Innis Lear (2018)
(Queens of Innis Lear, book 1)
Tessa Gratton
"A gloriously symphonic, thematically rich variation on the story of the daughters of Lear. The danger of seeking certainty makes this a tale for our time; the power of truth and mercy makes it a tale for all times. Prepare to devour every word, for Innis Lear will consume you."
