Freya Marske recommends
Lady Macbeth (2024)
Ava Reid
"Ava Reid takes one of Shakespeare's most interesting antiheroes and endows her with vulnerability, power, and depth in this darkly gorgeous feast of a book. I was spellbound from the very first page."
The Sky on Fire (2024)
Jenn Lyons
"Nobody does dragons like Jenn Lyons! All the ingredients here add up to a spectacular and sexy fantasy heist story: sky ships hunting leviathans, revenge plots, secrets, family drama, and an ensemble that sparkles like a hoard full of diamonds."
Running Close to the Wind (2024)
Alexandra Rowland
"Come for the irrepressible gremlin of a narrator, stay for the plot-relevant cake competitions! A whip-smart, hilarious and exuberant high seas romp."
