This is my favorite book right now. In Mirage, Somaiya Daud has crafted a beautiful fantasy (which seamlessly features some sci-fi concepts). The characters feel so alive. The setting and cultures, inspired by her Moroccan heritage, are intricate, beautiful, and refreshingly unique. The story is rich and engaging, but also succinct.

The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it. But when his father and three older sons in line for the throne are killed in an "accident," he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving heir. A compelling character in a fascinating fantasy world!

If you're into Lovecraft lore but aren't into bigotry and hate, this book is for you! Aphra Marsh doesn't like or trust the government after they raided her town and imprisoned her and her fellow Deep Ones, but helping her contact in the FBI is the only way to access the lost relics of her Innsmouth home, and possibly prevent a bigger disaster from befalling the entire country. Along the way, she learns she has more family than she knows. This book is beautifully weird.

Few books moved me as a young reader more than Sabriel. When few well rounded female characters were available for a twelve-year-old, Sabriel was a blessing. I stumbled across the book by accident and was immediately immersed in a world where one girl stands on the border of death and protects the living from its denizens. Sabriel must quickly come into her birthright and save her father from the final gateway of death and in the process, save her world.

You didn’t know you needed a Civil War era zombie book—but you do. In Dread Nation, Justina Ireland draws a compelling, tense, page turner that both makes your heart pound in suspense and makes you think about race with its nuanced writing. In short, it is genius, and you need to read it. (Even if you don't like zombie books.)
