Sometimes in the onslaught of shiny new books, incredible backlist titles that didn’t have a huge marketing push get forgotten…which is a crying shame. Today I’m celebrating those books and rounding up a list of some of my favourite underrated fantasy and sci-fi tales!
Katherine Arden’s debut THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE is a lush, haunting story inspired by Russian folklore that tells of a girl determined to live life by her own rules.
Alison Goodman has outdone herself with THE DARK DAYS PACT, an action-packed sequel that’s full of magic, manners, and the ill use of both.
A slow-to-start but ultimately satisfying story, Sarah Beth Durst’s novel THE QUEEN OF BLOOD is a solid introduction to a promising new fantasy series.
