Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Shards of Earth has the politics, usurping madness, power grabs, cultists—all the things you want in a space opera. You follow Idris, a war hero, make a discovery that sets the anticipation and fear for the rest of the book. It’s intellectually challenging, but the payoff is fulfilling and philosophical. I crossed into dark places reading this. I wondered if people deserve the chance to save their world from destruction! —Morgan

Grievers by adrienne maree brown

Grievers depicts an unyielding virus, H-8, which attacks only the Black citizens of Detroit, and sends its hosts into a catatonic state of mourning. Dune is our sharp-witted and brooding protagonist, who is determined to find answers after her mother becomes patient zero. It’s no surprise that adrienne maree brown is a dedicated student of Octavia Butler—this novel reads with the same level of intensity, grief, and hope found in Parable of the Sower. —Holly
