Vivian Shaw recommends
The Tethered Mage (2017)
(Swords and Fire, book 1)
"The Tethered Mage is gorgeous, intricate fantasy. Caruso creates a world in which magic is interwoven with politics, the fate of city-states and noble houses balancing on the daring and initiative of two compelling and vastly different heroines, supported with a rich and vivid cast of characters. One of the best new books I've read in years. I can't wait for the sequel!"
