Tim Pratt recommends
Creatures of Want & Ruin (2018)
(Creatures , book 2)
Molly Tanzer
"Creatures of Will and Temper was my favorite fantasy of 2017, and sequel Creatures of Want and Ruin is even better--a perfect Prohibition-Era cocktail of bootleggers, demons, and high society that will leave you shaken and stirred."
Bluebird (2022)
Ciel Pierlot
"Bluebird is a stunningly assured debut novel, and a rollicking space adventure with a lot of heart... not to mention panache and pizzazz."
The Circus Infinite (2022)
Khan Wong
"This dazzling space opera debut is a real delight, set in a vivid, inclusive future full of lively characters and showy set pieces. Running away to join the circus has never been more fun!"
