A Hunger of Thorns (2023)
Lili Wilkinson
"In this wonderful book, Wilkinson creates a whole new kind of magic - enchantments woven from family, from living things, and from the marrow of Story itself. Unlike anything else."
thumb
Monkey Around (2021)
Jadie Jang
"As delightful, nimble, and unpredictable as its namesake, Monkey Around is phantasmagoric in every sense of the word."

The Black God's Drums (2018)
P Djèlí Clark
"A sinewy mosaic of Haitian sky pirates, wily street urchins, and orisha magic."
