The Age of Witches by Louisa Morgan

I’ve been hooked on Louisa Morgan since I first picked up A Secret History of Witches last year. The Age of Witches is her third foray into magical historical fiction and, in my opinion, her best. Reconstruction-era New York and Victorian England are brought to vivid life as we weave our way through the social niceties (and not-so-niceties) of families and stepfamilies, marriage, and the social expectations of women of the era while expertly adding in a beautiful thread of magic and female companionship.

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire

From beginning to end Middlegame is the book you’ve been waiting for. I’ve been reading McGuire’s work for years and this is her best. The technical writing alone is masterful, then add in complex characters, and a plot that defies time and space, and you can see why it’s been nominated for a Hugo Award. Roger and Dodger, despite their ridiculous names, are characters to fall in love with even when they’re being their most exasperating.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Three paragraphs were all it took to pull me all the way into this intriguing portal fantasy. The entire book, Alix Harrow’s debut novel, lives up to the promise of its auspicious beginning. Set in the early 1900s, The Ten Thousand Doors of January transports the reader through secret magic openings to places of wonder and mystery. This is a book about books, a story about stories, a tale of courage, love, and family ties across time and space. Imaginative and enchanting!

Down Days by Ilze Hugo

Topical for the COVID-19 era, this magical realist novel is inspired by the 1962 Tanganyika Laughter Epidemic and set in a fictional version of Cape Town, Ilze Hugo’s hometown. This time, the laughter never stopped; seven years later, everyone is wearing a mask, laughing is forbidden, taxi drivers are death collectors, and a little girl is trying to find her brother—who may or may not be a ghost. But when even the truth is up for debate, what is one to do but laugh?
