Stars and Smoke (2023)
(Stars and Smoke, book 1)
Marie Lu
"A nail-biting thriller and a breathless romance, a keen character study and a wildly entertaining international caper . . with characters so charming and wounded and well-crafted that you'll want them to walk off the page."

As Long as the Lemon Trees Grow (2022)
Zoulfa Katouh
"A searing story of war, loss, family and love, of seeking grace in madness and hope in tragedy, AS LONG AS THE LEMON TREES GROW is a phenomenal tale, a piercing keen for the Syria that was and the Syria that is. An absolute must read."

Violet Made of Thorns (2022)
(Violet Made of Thorns, book 1)
Gina Chen
"An enchanting dark fantasy that turns tropes upside down while making us fall in love with the titular Violet, whose droll opinions and cunning self-protectiveness offer us a beautifully layered and endlessly fascinating narrator."
