Hannah is a witch—a real Elemental witch who can control the four elements—but even though she lives in Salem, MA, she has to keep her magic a closely guarded secret. But her life is upended when it seems that a blood witch has come to town and is threatening her coven—and she'll have to team up with her ex-girlfriend to investigate it. As the threats to the coven grow, the story becomes a fast-paced mystery with a side of romance. This was the perfect blend of sweet romance (and queerness), complex friendships, and thrilling mystery. And the second one's out now, so you can keep reading as soon as you're done—I promise you'll want to.

First, I was arrested by the cover; seriously, what a beautiful cover. Then I was taken in by the story, a relatively simple plot of smuggling contraband from point A to point B, but the addition of the nun Guet Imm to the smuggling party led by Lau Fung Cheung (but really by his second, Tet Sang), unravels the simple plot spectacularly. Because then the novella sneaks up on you with commentary on gender, honor, religion, and, ultimately, love. A genuinely fun and immersive read.

This series is my biggest new obsession of quarantine. It's like grown-up Oliver Twist but in pseudo-Venice and with just the right amounts of fantasy elements. Locke, Jean, and their whole band of delightful con-artists are my new favorite bastards, and I can't get enough of their adventures!

A fun jaunt about a young witch who is continuously underestimated and saves the day (quite literally). Great for a smile and giving your mind a rest for a bit from…everything. Contains combustible, cat-like monsters who live under beds.
