The Crane Husband (2023)
Kelly Barnhill
"The incomparable Barnhill delivers this sly, confrontational retelling with masterful ease and crystalline prose, revealing, feather by feather, the very real generational threat that has always burned at the core of this ancient story."
thumb
Saint Death's Daughter (2022)
(Saint Death, book 1)
C S E Cooney
"C. S. E. Cooney is one of the most moving, daring, and plainly beautiful voices to come out of recent fantasy. She's a powerhouse."
thumb
Road of Bones (2022)
Christopher Golden
"I don't know how else to say it. This book is scary as f***. Do not read alone in the dark."
