Even Greater Mistakes

This fascinating, emotional collection is a welcome addition showcasing Anders’s range and prose.

Empire in Black and Gold

Tchaikovsky’s “Shadows of the Apt” series brought this world to fascinating life in exquisite detail. The story may follow familiar fantasy tropes, but the characters make the story seem fresh and new. Highly recommended for fantasy and steampunk readers looking for a truly epic (and complete!) tale, fans of the author, and anyone looking for a great but different story about the rise and overthrow of fantastic empires. A good purchase for libraries that don’t own older editions of the series.

Inside Man

This book reads like a 21st-century version of C. S. Lewis’s Screwtape Letters, with a demon who’s disillusioned, disaffected, and just trying to keep his head down into Eternity. Parker (Prosper’s Demon) has written the ultimate mind game; recommended to readers who enjoy his particular brand of snarky, witty, fourth-wall-breaking storytelling.

Under the Whispering Door

The Exiled Fleet

Dewes’s follow up to The Last Watch keeps the action front and center, while presenting an expansive science fiction story that is both richly complex and accessible.

Immunity Index

This dystopian biothriller reads like a 21st-century version of Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain, crossed with George Orwell’s 1984. The clone sisters and their creator each provide alternating perspectives of a chaotic world and evince that individuals can make a difference. The story they tell is hopeful, heartbreaking, and compelling at every turn. Highly recommended for readers of dystopian science fiction or political technothrillers.

The Blacktongue Thief

Readers of epic fantasy novelists, like Tolkien or Brandon Sanderson, will enjoy this journey, which is by turns fun, magical, or terrifying for the travelers. Buehlman (The Lesser Dead) offers a departure from his horror novels in this fantasy with dark undertones. With fabulous examples of invented languages and dialects, this title is transporting.

She Who Became the Sun

Parker-Chan’s debut is forceful, immersive, and unforgettable. This inspired queer retelling of Chinese history is an exciting read.
