Rebecca Roanhorse recommends
When Among Crows (2024)
Veronica Roth
"I give it all the stars. A novella that harbors inside it a wonderfully fleshed out world of Slavic myth living just under the surface of modern Chicago. There are moments of terror and violence. There are also moments of quiet intimacy. Roth accomplishes something magical in a very small number of pages and tells a heartbreaking and beautiful story. 5/5 would return to this world and these characters in a heartbeat."
Five Broken Blades (2024)
(Five Broken Blades, book 1)
Mai Corland
"I started this one and could not put it down. It's everything you want in a unlikely group of untrustworthy bad people getting together to pull of an impossible heist (or in this case, an assassination) story."
Godly Heathens (2023)
(Ouroboros , book 1)
H E Edgmon
"This is the kind of book that changes young lives. The kind readers will force into their friends' hands and shout, 'Read this now!'. The kind where readers will fall in love with every character who is messy and sexy and terrible in their own way. The worldbuilding is fun and creative, the twists are satisfying, and it is super queer in the best way. There is plenty here to love. If only all the villain stories in YA could be this good!"
