Tamsyn Muir recommends
Shadow Frost (2019)
(Shadow Frost Trilogy, book 1)
"Shadow Frost is a fresh, confident and remarkably self-assured book. Asterin Faelenhart is a heroine of a type I wish had been more common when I'd been a teenager -- capable and imperfect, tender and sharp, with both sword and magic readied in the face of overwhelming odds. If Ma was this good at fifteen, the future of the genre is extremely bright."
The Unspoken Name (2020)
(Serpent Gates, book 1)
A K Larkwood
"An unexpected and new take on classic orcs 'n' swords fantasy. Stylish, classy, and timeless - but with racing stripes and an inbuilt camera. I cannot recommend it enough."
