THE PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE by Samantha Shannon 
“Shannon (THE BONE SEASON) satisfyingly fills this massive standalone epic fantasy with court intrigue, travel through dangerous lands, fantastical religions, blood, love, and rhetoric…. a very capable epic fantasy.Publishers Weekly

IN AN ABSENT DREAM by Seanan McGuire 
“McGuire’s fourth in the ‘Wayward Children’ series takes the concepts of fairness and common sense and twists them through the doorways of a portal fantasy with an amazing landscape and characters. Lyrical prose cuts with an honesty of losing childhood innocence that eases the heartache that sometimes accompanies coming of age.”Library Journal, starred review

AN ANONYMOUS GIRL by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen 
Three starred reviews!
“For those who relished the creepy stalking in Hendricks and Pekkanen’s THE WIFE BETWEEN US, this unnerving tale will have them rethinking what secrets are safe to share and if morals and ethics really matter when protecting the ones you love.”           Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove
