An Australian gothic that's just as wonderfully strange as you'd hope. You'll read it in an hour and it will show you a good creepy time. Jennings is a master of balance: the confusion that her characters wade through and the stickiness of her unreliable narrator slowly becoming aware of her own unreliability are kept from feeling too muddled by the razor-sharp imagery that jumps out from each page. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky

The Empire of Gold is the last in S.A.Chakraborty's Daevebad Trilogy. This trilogy is highly engrossing, wide in scope, emotionally compelling and complex in a way that reflects on our real world problems around power and class and race. Mostly, it is a great story full of plot twists and new characters elevating the foundation of the first two books. Enjoy the escape! ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow

If you are looking for a light-hearted, standalone fantasy novel, this is the book for you! It is laugh-out-loud funny, magical, and unique.

Rage of Dragons is unputdownable with nonstop action the whole way through. I can see why people compare it to both Game of Thrones and Gladiator, because that is exactly what you get. Epic battles, rulers vying for power, and a spectacular magic system. Definitely one you won’t want to miss! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

The monstrous Ku Kluxers of the Klan have deadly aims in 1922 Georgia, but a band of fearless, well-armed black women have them in their sights. Rich fantasy elements and sharp historical observations of the Klan's power in the 1920s merge to showcase the endless, but sometimes successful, fight against racism. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

A powerful young sorceress trying desperately not to turn evil is trapped inside a magical boarding school that would very much like to kill her. The darkness in this riveting page turner is both stunning and shockingly timely. Naomi Novik's writing is always full of surprises - and both fans and those new to her work will be swept away in this opening book of a planned trilogy. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person
