The Fall of Io by Wesley Chu
“I’m in awe of this book. Ella Patel is a fantastic, flawed, sympathetic protagonist who pops off the page from the moment you meet her and leads you on a breathtaking adventure that is at once poignant and wondrous.”
— Ken Liu, Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy winning author of The Grace of Kings
“The Rise of Io is great ride, and I desperately want a Quasing. The idea of a cosmic cheering section in my own head sounds delightful. Not to mention my Quasing would make me totally boss. Another hit by Wesley Chu.”
– Melinda Snodgrass, author of the Edge series
The Ingenious by Darius Hinks
“Visceral and intense, The Ingenious creates a world that is rich, vivid and enticing.”
– James Swallow, New York Times bestselling author of Nomad
“A deftly woven fantasy, rich in imagination and narrative flair and wrought in lyrical prose. Not to be missed.”
– George Mann, Sunday Times bestselling author
The Bayern Agenda by Dan Moren
“Hypercool. It’s like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain.”
– John Birmingham, author of the Axis of Time series
“Highly recommended, snarky sci-fi adventure.”
– Joe Zieja, author of Mechanical Failure
The Light Brigade by Kameron Hurley
“The Stars are Legion is a profoundly moving tale of self-discovery and self-construction in a world as wondrously layered as its unforgettable protagonist.”
– Ken Liu, author of Grace of Kings
“Epic in every sense of the word. Hurley has built a world – no, worlds – in which cosmology and magic, history and religion, politics and prejudice all play crucial roles. Forget all about tentative, conventional fantasy; there’s so much great material in here that Hurley needs more than one universe in order to fit it all in.”
– Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor’s Blades
Shadowblade by Anna Kashina
“Anna Kashina’s novels always provide fast action, treachery, and a rich world in which to immerse.”
– Gregory Frost, author of Shadowbridge
“Anna Kashina has a gift of blending political intrigue, fancy sword fights, assassins, and romance into enthralling fantasy epics. Fans of strong female characters, intricately built fantasy worlds, fast action, and exciting love stories would really enjoy her work!”
– Jeffe Kennedy, award-winning author of The Pages of the Mind
The Outside by Ada Hoffman
“The Outside is a beautiful, stark reclamation of unknowable horror. Hoffman layers thoughtful worldbuilding and rich prose to build a stunning story of power, ambition and personal agency. I couldn’t put The Outside down for fear of what might happen while I was looking away.”
– Sarah Gailey, Hugo Award-winning author of River of Teeth
“The Outside is a fresh and mind-bending mix of cosmic horror and space opera, a compelling story that spans from the deeply personal to the vast mysteries of time and space. Unsettling and gorgeous, this is like nothing I have read before and the book I have been longing for without knowing it.”
– Karin Tidbeck, award-winning author of Amatka and Jagannath
