Tochi Onyebuchi recommends
(Mirage, book 1)
"Lush and dangerous, Mirage had me entranced. Amani's journey-from rural innocent to calculating young woman, from village girl to royal impersonator-is galactic. Daud's novel asks, 'what does it mean to impersonate your enemy?' And the answer she provides here is nothing short of thrilling. I was here for all of it, and I desperately need to know what happens next."
We Set the Dark On Fire (2019)
(We Set the Dark on Fire, book 1)
Tehlor Kay Mejia
"Tehlor Kay Mejia has fashioned a gripping tale of romance and rebellion. Dani captivated me and held my heart in a vice grip all the way to this book’s stunning conclusion."
The Perfect Assassin (2019)
(Chronicles of Ghadid, book 1)
K A Doore
"K. A. Doore has crafted a thrilling and poignant tale on the costs of loyalty. In the city of Ghadid, ideas of justice and family battle and braid themselves around each other in action-packed fashion. Part murder mystery, part family saga, part coming-of-age chronicle, The Perfect Assassin intrigues and excites in equal measure."
Queen of the Conquered (2019)
(Islands of Blood and Storm, book 1)
"From the very first paragraph, Callender's adult debut stuns. A complex and furious examination of colonialism, Queen of the Conquered is a storm of a novel as epic as Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo. I've been looking for this book half my life."
Black Sun (2020)
(Between Earth and Sky, book 1)
"Engrossing and vibrant. Black Sun left me with my jaw on the floor."
Ring Shout (2020)
P Djèlí Clark
"Set in a magical and magic-ridden Georgia of the 1920s, Ring Shout is a thrilling and provocative inferno of a story. One of the most powerful and propulsive pieces of speculative fiction I've read in years. Fearless. Utterly fearless."
Firekeeper's Daughter (2021)
"Intricate and moving. Boulley takes the reader on an incredible journey with the assurance of a veteran novelist."
Mercury Boys (2021)
"Mercury Boys is a thrilling journey into the perils of adolescent friendship and a touching commentary on love's timelessness."
