Allison Saft recommends
The City Beautiful (2021)
Aden Polydoros
"Sinister and alluring, The City Beautiful will utterly transport you. With a keen eye for historical details, Polydoros deftly weaves together a gruesome murder mystery, a beautiful romance, and a rich depiction of Jewish life in the 19th century. I absolutely adored Alter, a boy on a quest for closure, love, and belonging in a hostile world."
What We Harvest (2022)
Ann Fraistat
"Clever, grotesque, and oozing with atmosphere, What We Harvest is a delightful, page-turning debut. Fraistat masterfully blends horror, fantasy, and science into a tale brimming with slow-creeping dread and explosive, long-buried secrets. I devoured it in one sitting."
This Vicious Grace (2022)
(Last Finestra, book 1)
Emily Thiede
"The perfect blend of humor and heart, This Vicious Grace is a high-stakes romp that brims with deadly magic, sparkling chemistry, and the deep yearning for connection in an alienating world. Prepare to fall head-over-heels with Alessa and Dante!"
Wake the Bones (2022)
Elizabeth Kilcoyne
"With atmosphere as close and thick as summer heat, Wake the Bones is an unflinchingly gruesome delight. Kilcoyne's lush, spellbinding prose kept me racing through the pages--and examines the ways small-town horrors soak into the very earth."
One Dark Window (2022)
(Shepherd King, book 1)
Rachel Gillig
"An enchanting tale with sharp claws and teeth - Gillig's prose will pull you in and won't let you sleep. Pulse-pounding, darkly whimsical and aglow with treacherous magic, One Dark Window is everything I love in fantasy and more."
The Whispering Dark (2022)
Kelly Andrew
"A masterclass in dark academia. Andrew dazzles with exquisite prose, sizzling romantic tension, and a clever, twisting plot."
Revelle (2023)
Lyssa Mia Smith
"Revelle is a jewel of a debut, as glittering and gritty as its Roaring Twenties setting. Lyssa Mia Smith has written a real showstopper, with a romance that's both sizzling and sweet, wildly imaginative worldbuilding, and twists that crescendo to a thrilling finale. I couldn't read it fast enough!"
Lies We Sing to the Sea (2023)
Sarah Underwood
"Lies We Sing to the Sea is a lyrical, elegant debut bursting with imagination and heart. Underwood expertly weaves a tale about the inevitability of fate - and the love that makes us rail against it anyway. Bittersweet and wholly cathartic."
