Rebecca Roanhorse recommends
Song of Blood & Stone (2015)
(Earthsinger Chronicles, book 1)
L Penelope
"Set against a backdrop of myth and magic, Song of Blood and Stone is a sweeping tale of love, duty and destiny that feels as urgent as it does timeless."
The Light Brigade (2019)
Kameron Hurley
"Starship Troopers meets Edge of Tomorrow. A call for us all to be the light in dark times."
Gods of Jade and Shadow (2019)
Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"An evocative and moving fairy-tale about a downtrodden girl and the Mayan God of Death and how they both find each other and their humanity together . . . Loved it. Highly recommend."
Bonds of Brass (2020)
(Bloodright Trilogy, book 1)
Emily Skrutskie
"An exciting space opera full of action and adventure that explores the bonds of loyalty and love, and what happens when they are stretched to their limits."
A Song Below Water (2020)
(Song Below Water, book 1)
Bethany C Morrow
"Morrow masterfully blends the real lives of Black girls in contemporary Portland with a mythic world of sirens, gargoyles and other supernatural creatures to create a compelling coming-of-age story in which two sisters, bound by love and fate, find their voices and their power."
Harrow the Ninth (2020)
(Locked Tomb, book 2)
Tamsyn Muir
"The patient reader will be rewarded tenfold with brilliant original characters and magic, heartbreaking intimacy, laugh out loud humor and the best damn soup in the galaxy."
She Who Became the Sun (2021)
(Radiant Emperor, book 1)
Shelley Parker-Chan
"An absolute stunner... The story, much like the characters, is ambitious and clever and the depth of emotion Parker-Chan is able to tap into without ever becoming maudlin is astounding... There's war and violence and betrayal (oh the betrayal) and destiny both embraced and defied. Incredible work. Cannot wait for the next one."
Scorpica (2022)
(Five Queendoms, book 1)
G R Macallister
"Ambitious and engaging... A sprawling epic fantasy that spans the lives of warriors, queens and the fate of a continent."
Last Exit (2022)
Max Gladstone
"It's strange and wondrous and chilling and creepy and beautiful all at once. A book fit for our end-of-times times."
The Dawnhounds (2022)
(Endsong, book 1)
Sascha Stronach
"Fiercely queer. A strange and wondrous re-imagining of noir that takes its cues from biopunk and SE Asian mythos to create something wholly different. There's real imagination at work here - I loved it."
Even Though I Knew the End (2022)
C L Polk
"Vivid and charming with a touch of noir edge, but way more heart."
White Horse (2022)
Erika T Wurth
"An unapologetic world of dive bars, dark secrets, and true life horrors. I became completely enthralled. . . . Wurth [is] an exciting new voice in literary horror."
