Enclave (2011)
(Razorland, book 1)
Ann Aguirre

Elisha Mancer (2017)
(Dark Apostle, book 4)
E C Ambrose
"A vivid, violent, and marvelously detailed historical fantasy set in the perilous world that is medieval England in the middle of a war. Elisha Barber wades through blood and battle in his pursuit of arcane knowledge - forbidden love - and dangerous magic."
At the Table of Wolves (2017)
(Dark Talents, book 1)
Kay Kenyon
"I kept thinking about the book long after I read the last page, and I can't wait to see where Kenyon's own Talents take us next."
A Secret History of Witches (2017)
Louisa Morgan
"A grand family saga rich with historical detail and threaded through with magic. Like the women at the heart of the story, the book gains its power from the unfolding of generations, each one building on the wisdom and the mistakes of the past. I loved each new story just a little more than the one before it, and I kept hoping to read even one more tale of the Orchiere women!"
The Sisters Mederos (2018)
Patrice Sarath
"An exciting and absorbing read."
