Helen Marshall recommends
The City of Lost Fortunes (2018)
(Crescent City , book 1)
Bryan Camp
"In The City of Lost Fortunes, Bryan Camp delivers a high-octane tale of myth and magic, serving up the best of Neil Gaiman and Richard Kadrey. Here is New Orleans in all its gritty, grudging glory, the haunt of sinners and saints, gods and mischief-makers. Once you pay a visit, you won't want to leave!"
The Book of Hidden Things (2018)
Francesco Dimitri
"What a glorious read! This sun-drenched fantasy is a feast for the senses, reflecting on the value of friendship and what it means to finally grow up. If you loved the Neil Gaiman's Ocean at the End of the Lane, this book is for you."
The Golden Key (2020)
Marian Womack
"A fantastic new talent."
