Blood on the Tide

Lizzie and Maeve’s story is sure to satisfy new and return readerss, especially for romance fans who enjoy morally gray protagonists with “touch her and you die” vibes.

The Gilded Crown

A beautiful fantasy full of quests, court intrigue, and star-crossed lovers, Gordon’s debut is the first of a duology, recommended for fans of Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree.

Welcome to Forever

Tavares’s (A Fractured Infinity) worldbuilding is complex and fascinating in this kaleidoscope of a novel. The high-stakes science fiction is sharp and tragic, hopeful and thrilling.

The Emperor and the Endless Palace

Huang’s opulent debut novel is a queer m/m reimagining of Chinese folklore that tells a mystical story of star-crossed lovers who chase true love and atonement across thousands of lifetimes.

The Lady in Glass and Other Stories

Recommended for fans who are curious about Bishop’s journey as a writer and are interested in reading about the inspiration and motivation behind her stories.


Evocative and a little mysterious, this literary fantasy is immersive and full of Nigerian mythology. Recommend this lustrous coming-of-age story to those who like to read across genres.

Hunt on Dark Waters

A clever-witch-meets-stern-pirate, open-door, one-bed delight.

The Witches at the End of the World

The Hanging City

For fans of T. Kingfisher, this sweet story of belonging is a romantic twist on the classic bridge-troll fairy tale.
