Karen Lord recommends
thumb
Sorcerer to the Crown (2015)
(Sorcerer Royal, book 1)
Zen Cho
"A deliciously true tale of politics and power in a charming, cruel world—it demands and deserves to be read again and again. Cho has humor and flair to match Pratchett and Heyer plus her own marvelous style."

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."
