Fran Wilde recommends

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."

Slightly Ruby (2016)
Patrick Swenson
"A tempting glimpse at the mysterious, dark underbelly of a human and alien conspiracy. A dangerous and compelling story."

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."

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."

The Strange Case of the Alchemist's Daughter (2017)
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."

An Oath of Dogs (2017)
Wendy N Wagner
"Rare and precious...compelling and true."

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."
