The deliciously intricate prose of Master of Poisons will swirl around you like a swarm of bees, minutely detailed but still moving as one, pulling you into a world of magical young girls, pirate wives, and complicated families.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

While this one may not be entirely traditional fantastical fare, Schwab’s latest novel is utterly magical. Addie is given as much time to experience life as she wants but in exchange, she has become forgettable...until hundreds of years later, she meets a man who, against all odds, remembers her name. Immersive and transportive, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue makes you think about what price you would pay to keep what you want, and what deals with devils are worth making. — Jax

The Future of Another Timeline by Annalee Newitz

The best science fiction transforms us into actors in their world and in ours. It makes us invest in a future that we have the potential to (un)make. In this cyber-feminist, totally punk, time-travelling tale, Newitz uses her quick-paced storyline and captivating characters to introduce us to a world that could be ours. Not only will this book make you want to wear fishnets and mosh to Grape Ape, it’ll make you lucidly see your own role in revolution. — Citlalli

Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark

White supremacists are monsters. No really, watch out! There’s a monster behind you! Only some people can see them, and they have formed a motley group of Black resistance fighters, including our heroine, who is armed with a sword embodied by spirits of her ancestors. This book is a mixing pot of Deep South folk tales and fantasy set in the post–WWI Jim Crow South. — Celeste

Revenge, intrigue, and unexpected magic live at the heart of this stunning debut. In an Asian-inspired fantasy world, rebellion foments against the mysterious and harsh Emperor who demands a literal part of every citizen to keep them safe from a nebulous threat. One young woman must seek out the secrets to her father’s magic, but the answers are much darker than she can imagine. Rich and truly surprising, this book stayed with me long after I put it down. —Ivy

Strap in, kids, this one is a wild ride. With a slow-burn horror, Lovecraftian beginning, you won't be able to put this one down. Part family drama, part spine tingling spookiness, the Turner family and their woes will make any horror fan happy. —Jae

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.
