This book is for anyone on a romantasy kick who wants a break from Fae (you deserve it, you’ve put in the hours). Steeped in Norse mythology, the story introduces Freya, who is stuck in an unwanted marriage and dreams of more. When it is revealed that she is a part of a prophecy and can turn men into kings, she finally gets the adventure she yearned for--but not the control over her own fate. Bound by another unwanted marriage Freya must learn how to hone her magic to save both her people and herself.

Neuromancer by William Gibson

Staff Pick

One of the first and still the very best of the cyberpunk sci-fi novels, Neuromancer is an intelligent and inventive story of greed and corruption in a noir-ish world of big data, pervasive surveillance, virtual experience, and artificial intelligence.  Writing nearly 40 years ago, William Gibson not only anticipated the world in which we live but influenced it culturally and aesthetically.  The book has the first depiction in fiction of cyberspace--a word Gibson coined--and what that word now evokes is what he described. Most importantly, Neuromancer is a gripping, fast-paced story, a great read, and a genuine page-turner: a terrific, seminal work of science fiction.

The Unbroken by C.L. Clark

Staff Pick

Inspired by French colonial history in northern Africa, The Unbroken follows Touraine, who was conscripted as a child to fight for the Empire’s army.  But when, on returning to her homeland, she stops a near assassination attempt of Balladaire’s princess, she begins to question all she's stood for. This novel engenders what makes fantasy my favorite genre: how we can imagine radically revolutionary worlds superimposed on our very real histories. Any lover of military fantasy, sapphic tenderness, or rebellion needs to pick this up right now!
