Transporting and vivid, this is a tale of adventure, magic, self-acceptance, and friendship that will stay with you. Set in a world where technology is built from plants and flower petals are currency, thirteen-year-old Zahrah just wants to be normal, but her dadalocks - vines that grow in her hair and grant her powers she wishes she could ignore - mark her as different. When her best friend Dari goes missing, Zahrah must enter a mysterious forest and embrace her abilities to save him. From the author of the Binti trilogy and writer of Marvel’s Black Panther comics!

The Prydain Chronicles are a fantasy classic equally worth re-visiting or discovering for the first time. Whether you're new to fantasy (hello, Rick Riordan fans!) or a weathered veteran, this series provides all the magic and fellowship of Lord of the Rings as it deftly crafts its story from the bones of Welsh mythology. For bonus points: I'm pretty sure Princess Eilonwy is the original Hermione Granger.

The Mythic Dream

If you read science fiction and fantasy, you should pick up this book. Every anthology Parisien & Wolfe edit is excellent, and The Mythic Dream is no exception.

The inside of this book is as beautiful as the outside! I quickly found myself drawn head over heels into the rich world of Margaret Owen's debut; it's so lived-in that it's hard not to be! There's not much better than finding such a fresh, magical fantasy to sink your teeth into.

I wish I could live in the world Rebecca Kim Wells has built in SHATTER THE SKY. This book has it all: adventure; intrigue; a culture that accepts queerness without question; a protagonist who is clever, practical, determined, and impossible not to love. And, of course, DRAGONS!

The only thing that would make me love this book more is if it had been published 15 years ago so I could have read it over and over again as a teenager.

An Ember in the Ashes is one of my all time favorite books. From the first chapter to the last, you will be consumed by Sabaa Tahir's fantastic writing. Right from the start, you enter the Martial Empire and the story sets off, pulling you with it.  Laia and Elias happen to be the main characters, but Helene will surprise you. And Helene is who I'm rooting for to win it all. Who will you root for?
