Fran Wilde recommends
thumb
The Drowning Eyes (2016)
Emily Foster
"The Drowning Eyes made me want to sail the coastline on a boat of my own and see if I could call up a storm."
thumb
Slightly Ruby (2016)
Patrick Swenson
"A tempting glimpse at the mysterious, dark underbelly of a human and alien conspiracy. A dangerous and compelling story."
thumb
River of Teeth (2017)
(River of Teeth, book 1)
Sarah Gailey
"This is a thing I now know about Sarah Gailey: she is a word-magician who can render searing touch on a flat page and suspend disbelief flawlessly. The world of River of Teeth feels vast, and navigable due to her skill. The characters within, deep and yet intimately knowable."
thumb
The Prey of Gods (2017)
Nicky Drayden
"The Prey of Gods delivers on every promise in beautifully unexpected ways that leave you breathless, a little dizzy, and wanting more...Exquisite, fast-paced, and excellent fun."
thumb
The Strange Case of the Alchemist's Daughter (2017)
(Mary Jekyll, book 1)
Theodora Goss
"As if Charlie's Angels, as written by Mary Shelley, took over the Bluestocking Society, with bonus well mannered explosions. An utterly delightful, transformative read."
thumb
An Oath of Dogs (2017)
Wendy N Wagner
"Rare and precious...compelling and true."
thumb
Strange Practice (2017)
(Dr. Greta Helsing, book 1)
Vivian Shaw
"In Vivian Shaw's Strange Practice, a charmingly unusual doctor and her charges keep the city of London from grave danger. In the process, they peel back the covers of familiar (and according to them, somewhat 'libelous') stories to find that reality - especially with the undead - is more poignant and complex than it seems at first glance. An excellent adventure."
thumb
An Unkindness of Magicians (2017)
Kat Howard
"This is an amazing book filled with magic, consequences, and what happens when you fight rather than turning away. This is Omelas, for magic. This is the price that must be paid. This is the story the others forgot to tell."
thumb
The City of Brass (2017)
(Daevabad Trilogy, book 1)
S A Chakraborty
"S. A. Chakraborty's debut novel is an adventure that sweeps readers through the streets of Cairo and out into a spellbinding landscape of magic, warring clans, sacrifice, and betrayal. Each page reveals a new wonder. Con-woman Nahri, djinn warrior Dara, and the enchanted city that they--and we--are only just beginning to understand, are captivating. What an exciting ride!"
thumb
Jade City (2017)
(Green Bone Saga, book 1)
Fonda Lee
"With a powerful family of complex characters -- including my favorite, Kaul Shaelinsan -- Jade City beckons readers to secret family meetings and public battles between warring clans. With magical jade at stake, winning the battle for control of a city has never been more important, or more dangerous. Fonda Lee's first adult novel is a fast-hitting, tantalizing, sometimes unsettling, and always insightful book with a wealth of power at its core. A modern-day epic."
thumb
Witchmark (2018)
(Kingston Cycle, book 1)
C L Polk
"Glowing with expertly handled magic, in a deeply-layered alternate world, Polk's Witchmark is a serious mystery and a steaming romance. I'm enchanted."
thumb
Implanted (2018)
Lauren C Teffeau
"Implanted takes readers to the bleeding edge of a hopeful future and dives headlong into the risks required to make that future real. Emery is a character I loved from the start for her skills and flaws both, and Teffeau takes this ultra-high-tech future to new heights and depths with incredible skill. Such a great adventure!"
thumb
In the Vanishers' Palace (2018)
Aliette de Bodard
"A transformative experience. With dragons."
thumb
City of Broken Magic (2018)
Mirah Bolender
"City of Broken Magic explores what happens after the familiar heroes have gone, and the importance of those who remain to begin again."
thumb
Empire of Sand (2018)
Tasha Suri
"Empire of Sand is astounding. The desert setting captured my imagination, the magic bound me up, and the epic story set my heart free."
thumb
Here and Now and Then (2019)

"A tight net of excitement and wonder."
