Anna Stephens recommends
The Surviving Sky (2023)
(Rages Trilogy, book 1)
Kritika H Rao
"The Surviving Sky has some of the most intricate and inventive worldbuilding I've ever had the pleasure to lose myself in, coupled with a story that both examines exactly what it means to be human while daring to ask: what if we were more?"
A Strange and Stubborn Endurance (2022)
(Tithenai Chronicles, book 1)
Foz Meadows
"A very human story, and an unabashed love story, it nonetheless deals with issues around power, parental neglect (or at least ignorance), cruelty, and ambition in a way that never feels forced or supplemental to the main characters as they navigate arranged marriage and a traumatic past."
Man Down (2022)
James Goodhand
"An excellent look at what it means to 'be a man' amid a culture of peer pressure and toxic masculinity while navigating desire and friendship. Loved it."
