Ferrett Steinmetz recommends
The Circus Infinite (2022)
Khan Wong
"The Circus Infinite is both elegiac and majestic, with vibrant characters and a real sense of art at its heart. It soars like a trapeze artist."
The Last Sun (2018)
(Tarot Sequence, book 1)
K D Edwards
"Sharp dialogue, plus characters you want to follow around just to see what happens next . . . What’s not to love?"
An Oath of Dogs (2017)
Wendy N Wagner
"An Oath of Dogs nails the rough-hewn feel of a frontier town, then mixes it up with intergalactic corporate intrigue and alien biology. It's like Lake Wobegon mashed up with a Michael Crichton thriller, as unlikely a melding of cultures as the world of Huginn itself, creating a story that mashes massive questions of religion and ethics together with the joy of science and discovery."
