Speak of the Devil (2023)
Rose Wilding
"One of the most assured and compelling debuts I've read in a long while. Rose Wilding's evocation of the Newcastle setting and pitch-perfect ear for dialogue make every one of her characters live and breathe. I love the way she can unpick their lives before our eyes, exposing every secret. It's such a clever, multi-layered story."

The Sisterhood (2023)
Katherine Bradley
"A dazzling retelling of the classic dystopian novel, which raises profound questions about how society works, and whether or not woman have political agency. I found it memorable, deeply moving, and at times, terrifying."

When The Lights Go Out (2022)
Chris Curran
"I loved it! It's such an immersive read - the story hurtles towards its compelling climax. Brilliant stuff!"
