Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

Flamecaster revisits the Seven Realms for the next generation of warfare, intrigue, magic, and romance. This breathtaking story follows Adrian “Ash” sul’Han, a young prince of the Fells. Ash has lost too much to the monstrous king of Arden and runs away to train as a wizard healer, devoting his spare time to the assassination. Meanwhile, Jenna Bandelow, a destitute Ardenine coal miner, also suffered maybe even more. She joins the guerrilla to overthrow the crown. Both characters’ paths collide, with one a slave and the other a prisoner. Ash’s deadly skill and Jenna’s magical magemark, together they might achieve the vengeance neither could accomplish alone. Flamecaster is the perfect starting point for Chima’s recent series. 

The Shadow of the Staff by M.A. Haddad

The Shadow of the Staff will show you the warrior you are. When Burton Brew, a hobbit-like protagonist, is taken to the Elf city of Fallquint, his life changes. Years after Burton’s ancestor defeated the evil wizard Porttia, an army of Orcs is again terrorizing the land. The celebratory journey takes Burton on a dangerous and unexpected turn for the worst. This adventure takes him into an adventure of knowing his greatest capability and making new allies. Burton, along with his new allies, must endure the dangers of the skirmishes with the orcs. History seems to be repeating itself, and Burton must do something to save the day. The Shadow of the Staff is an allegorical parody of the repetitive history of humanity. 

Along the Razor’s Edge by Rob J. Hayes

Along the Razor’s Edge is a rollercoaster ride experience that will make you hold your breath, pump your fist, and scream all at the same time. Eskara Helsene is quite the anti-heroine. She’s one of the world’s most powerful battle sorcerers. Unfortunately for her, she’s on the losing side of the great war. She was betrayed and lost access to her power sources. Eskara’s personality comes bleeding through the prose at every turn. Hayes will satisfy you with a fantastic story arc in Eskara’s life. Along the Razor’s Edge is a brilliant evolution of sheer storytelling of dark fantasy. 

The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood

The Unspoken Name is a warrior-maiden adventure in an imaginative universe. Larkwood’s narration is a creative, exciting, and brilliantly told epic fantasy. It is an immersive experience that grabs anyone’s attention. Csorwe serves the oracular shrine of a god-The Unspoken Name- but is destined to sacrifice herself soon. Then Sethennai, a wizard requesting a prophecy about the mysterious and powerful Reliquary of Pentravesse, offers her a life-changing choice: serve him and live, or marry the god and die. The Unspoken Name is Larkwood’s promising debut novel that female audiences will surely love. 

Legend Has It by Elliot James

Legend Has It is the fifth installment in the Pax Arcana series by Elliot James. While it’s easier to understand the plot if you’ve read the previous books, James brings you up to speed early on the pages. John Charming is a werewolf and monster hunter who was once a member of the Knights Templar. Charming finds himself dragged into a disastrous series of events after meeting the half-vampire Kashia. The people of New York City are transforming into mythical creatures and are wreaking havoc on innocent bystanders. Will Charming find the cause of this horrific transformation before the world is turned into chaos? Legend Has It is a near-catastrophic romp through a reality destabilized by fairy tales and myth.
