Cassiel’s Servant

While many parts of the story are familiar, Joscelin’s point of view will revitalize fans of the series and draw new readers to this lush epic fantasy. Libraries should prepare for requests for the original series.


Carey's evocative prose and skillful worldbuilding establishes a lushly detailed setting populated by memorable, well-drawn characters in a story that is deliberate and immersive. Exquisite action sequences will delight the many fans of her "Kushiel's Legacy" series. [See Prepub Alert, 12/11/17.]

Miranda and Caliban

In this stand-alone, Carey evokes the same stunning worldbuilding and imagery of her "Kushiel's Legacy" and "Sundering" series, as she stirs new emotions from an old story and reveals another side to Shakespeare's epic play. [See Prepub Alert, 8/22/16.]

Poison Fruit

This third urban fantasy series outing (after 2013's Autumn Bones) is the opposite of Carey's epic fantasies (Kushiel's Dart), but it is light and fun. With Daisy's romantic triangles, she will appeal to readers who miss Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse. The small-town setting and variety of inhuman creatures keep things lively.

Dark Currents: Agent of Hel

Carey’s first urban fantasy turn is as fun and fantastic as her previous efforts; fans will definitely want this, and pronto. [Previewed in Kristi Chadwick’s Genre Spotlight feature “Hungry for SF,” LJ 8/12.—Ed.]

Naamah's Blessing

The appeal here is for series fans alone. Without the backstory of the previous books, Moirin's current adventure lacks purpose. [See Prepub Alert, 12/6/10.]
