Nikki Marmery recommends
The Unspeakable Acts of Zina Pavlou (2023)
Eleni Kyriacou
"Kyriacou writes so movingly of the diaspora Cypriot experience, without shying away from the dark, the seedy, the criminal.... It is an extraordinary achievement to humanise a woman accused of not one but two brutal murders of family members; that Kyriacou does so while honouring the fictional (and real-life) victims is remarkable. This is a haunting and intensely compassionate book with complex, compelling characters who will stay with me for a very long time."
Cities of Women (2023)
Kathleen B Jones
"Cities of Women is a vivid and absorbing dual-timeline novel following a 21st century historian as she uncovers the life of a forgotten medieval female artist. Illuminating and smart, it reads like a love letter to curiosity and creativity. This is an empowering tale of two women separated by the centuries, but united in their determination to pursue their passions at all costs."
Clytemnestra's Bind (2023)
(House of Atreus, book 1)
Susan C Wilson
"Clytemnestra's Bind is bold, brilliant and brutal. Rich with psychological insight, hypnotic characters and thrilling dialogue, Wilson's writing recalls the great Mary Renault...I was completely captivated by Wilson's propulsive, visceral storytelling and the unique horror of her haunting heroine's predicament. I cannot wait for the next instalment!"
