Jamie Pacton recommends
The Final Curse of Ophelia Cray (2024)
Christine Calella
"I absolutely adored this book for its brave heroines and cheered for them as they fought pirates, scoundrels, and their own deepest fears. Perfect for fans of Our Flag Means Death, Pirates of the Caribbean, and feminist takes on history that put swords in girls' hands and let them fight fiercely for what and who they love."
A Fragile Enchantment (2024)
Allison Saft
"Full of gorgeous prose, a captivating magic system, and lovable yet deeply flawed characters...Come for a romantic Bridgerton-esque escape into a beautiful fantasy world, but be prepared for danger, intrigue, and incisive political commentary at every turn."
By Any Other Name (2023)
Erin Cotter
"Elizabethan London-- complete with Shakespeare's plays, Kit Marlowe's murder, dazzling court masques, and deadly intrigue-- comes to life in this thrilling, high stakes, beautifully written story. Part galloping, bloody mystery and part tender, queer love story, By Any Other Name is all heart and will have readers up late into the night cheering for the characters and the many twists of their fates."
