Fantasy Spotlight (5/5/22)

Today we bring you a fantasy spotlight of new and upcoming bestsellers, from a world filled with shadow magicians and secret societies who will do anything for power, to Victorian London and Edinburgh, where gifted children must hide their talents from the rest of the world—all while combating the forces that threaten to end them all.

BOOK OF NIGHT BY HOLLY BLACK

A LibraryReads pick and Indie Next pick!

“Charlie Hall is every ‘bad luck and worse trouble’ protagonist to ever magic her way into urban fantasy. She’s desperate, she’s profane, she’s fascinating, and she kicks ass and takes names with the best antiheroes of the genre. Her world is gritty and mysterious, the stakes are always high, and the power is always tempting.”–Library Journal, starred review

ORDINARY MONSTERS BY J. M. Miro

An Indie Next pick!

“In Miro’s historical fantasy, set in 1880s London and Edinburgh, two children are hunted by a man made of smoke and learn to harness their mysterious powers… This grim but poignant debut showcases a bleak Victorian England, engaging characters, and the desire to belong.”–Library Journal, starred review
