Words in Deep Blue (2017)
Cath Crowley

Blackheart Knights (2021)
Laure Eve
"The screaming neon of Bladerunner meets the medieval steel of Arthurian legend in a world that's dizzying in scope and imagination. The boldest, smartest, most adventurous fantasy I've read in ages - and it's really f**ing fun."
No Beauties or Monsters (2021)
Tara Goedjen
"Sears with uncanny malice from the very first page--and then quickly explodes into a blistering fever dream. Insidiously beautiful."

Tobias Madden
"In Anything But Fine, Tobias Madden delivers a stirring meditation on identity and grief. Sweet, warm and thoroughly delightful, it will quickly dance its way into your heart."
Our Crooked Hearts (2022)
Melissa Albert
"Nobody writes like Melissa Albert. Her words are electric, sizzling; they crash through the bloodstream with the same force as the magic she conjures in her stories. Our Crooked Hearts is Albert at her very best; a sharp explosion of a book that's taut, haunting, and potent as a witch's brew."
