Suyi Davies Okungbowa recommends
The Spear Cuts Through Water (2022)
"Drawing on staples of traditional fantasy such as reluctant, mismatched heroes on a quest, The Spear Cuts Through Water subverts expectations with its language, point of view, and narrative choices. Readers looking for self-aware fantasy with folkloric overtones and the sensibilities of an epic poem--look no further. Jimenez's novel is an intricate, multilayered story speaking in multiple tongues at once. Fans of diverse, nuanced epics like Black Sun and the Broken Earth series will find this worth their while."
The Lies of the Ajungo (2023)
(Forever Desert, book 1)
Moses Ose Utomi
"Utomi is on the brink of something exceptional."
The Surviving Sky (2023)
(Rages Trilogy, book 1)
Kritika H Rao
"The Surviving Sky is a prodigious gift best slowly unwrapped. Nakshar is an enigma of a city, as rooted and protective as its people; its stakes feel cosmic yet intimate. With two headstrong characters, Ahilya and Iravan, at its helm, the story bristles, charges headlong toward its fate, keeps readers on their feet. Rao has offered us a world like no other."
