Sherwood Smith recommends
Lords of Rainbow (2003)
(Lords of Rainbow)
Vera Nazarian
"Vera Nazarian's second novel, Lords of Rainbow, is a delight, full of the rich imagery, the humor, lyricism, adventure, insight, and delicious eastern fairy tale flavor that readers first met in Dreams of the Compass Rose. Nazarian gives us a tale wove out of color - unpredictable, funny, wise, and always entertaining. She's a talent to watch."
The Way into Magic (2015)
(Great Way, book 2)
Harry Connolly
"Complex world, tight action, awesome women as well as men, Connolly was good right out the gate and just keeps getting better."
Starlings (2018)
Jo Walton
"One of the things I love about Walton’s work is her range of human possibility, from laughter to horror, but above all a reveling in profligate beauty. This collection celebrates the best in the human spirit."
