Ava Reid recommends
A Dark and Drowning Tide (2024)
Allison Saft
"Richly imagined and as bewitching as a naiad's song, A Dark and Drowning Tide deftly weaves romance with powerful indictments of the fetid, nationalistic roots of our favorite fairy tales. But for each prick of a prejudicial thorn, Saft offers her readers a balm - at its core, this is a story about the healing capacity of love. Clever, emotional, and gorgeous."
The Warm Hands of Ghosts (2024)
Katherine Arden
"Darkly beautiful and deeply humane, this is a story of love that reaches across borders and across oceans, and even penetrates the veil of death. It will stir your heart and settle into your bones."
The Bad Ones (2024)
Melissa Albert
"Melissa Albert writes the kind of horror that doesn't just make you check under your bed-it makes you check your own reflection in the mirror. A black-veined, spectral howl of a novel, The Bad Ones cements Albert as the contemporary queen of suburban fantasy."
