Gardens of the Moongardensifthemoon by Steven Erickson — $3.99

The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations with the formidable Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii, ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen’s rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

Too Like the Lightningmacmillan-2 by Ada Palmer — $3.99

Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required, as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster is a sensayer—a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away. In this world, Mycroft and Carlyle have stumbled on the wild card that may destabilize the system: the boy Bridger, who can effortlessly make his wishes come true. Who can, it would seem, bring inanimate objects to life…

The Traitor Baru Cormorantmacmillan-3 by Seth Dickinson — $3.99

Baru Cormorant believes any price is worth paying to liberate her people-even her soul. When the Empire of Masks conquers her island home, overwrites her culture, criminalizes her customs, and murders one of her fathers, Baru vows to swallow her hate, join the Empire’s civil service, and claw her way high enough to set her people free. Sent as an Imperial agent to distant Aurdwynn, another conquered country, Baru discovers it’s on the brink of rebellion. Drawn by the intriguing duchess Tain Hu into a circle of seditious dukes, Baru may be able to use her position to help. But the cost of winning the long game of saving her people may be far greater than Baru imagines.

The Helm of Midnightmacmillan-4 by Marina Lostetter — $2.99

In a daring and deadly heist, thieves have made away with an artifact of terrible power—the death mask of Louis Charbon. Made by a master craftsman, it is imbued with the spirit of a monster from history, a serial murderer who terrorized the city. Now Charbon is loose once more, killing from beyond the grave. But these murders are different from before, not simply random but the work of a deliberate mind probing for answers to a sinister question. It is up to Krona Hirvath and her fellow Regulators to enter the mind of madness to stop this insatiable killer while facing the terrible truths left in his wake.

Luna: New Moonmacmillan-5 by Ian McDonald — $2.99

The Moon wants to kill you. Maybe it will kill you when the per diem for your allotted food, water, and air runs out, just before you hit paydirt. Maybe it will kill you when you are trapped between the reigning corporations-the Five Dragons-in a foolish gamble against a futuristic feudal society. On the Moon, you must fight for every inch you want to gain. And that is just what Adriana Corta did. As the leader of the Moon’s newest “dragon,” Adriana has wrested control of the Moon’s Helium-3 industry from the Mackenzie Metal corporation and fought to earn her family’s new status. Now, in the twilight of her life, Adriana finds her corporation confronted by the many enemies she made during her meteoric rise.

Andrew “Ender” Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this new book, card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean—the one who became Ender’s right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers.

Cover of The God is Not Willing by Steven EricksonThe God is Not Willing by Steven Erikson

From 1999’s Gardens of the Moon to 2011’s The Crippled God, Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series took readers across both continents and millenia, cataloging the history of the Malazan Empire. Now, ten years later, Erikson returns to this expansive universe in the Witness Trilogy, a sequel series, starting with The God is Not Willing

Cover of Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonaldDaughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald

Ed McDonald’s trilogy of high fantasy, The Raven’s Mark, delivered to readers a world of dark immortals, ancient wizards, twisted creations, and ghost-filled wasteland. Now, he’s turning his pen to a new epic fantasy series: The Redwinter Chronicles. In this series about how one choice can change the universe, you’ll encounter: the spirits of the recent and ancient deceased, a young girl who can see them, a world that would kill her if it knew, and an order of warrior-magicians housed in a fortress-monastery containing all kinds of cursed artifacts. 

Cover of The City We Became by N. K. JemisinThe City We Became by N.K. Jemisin

In The Broken Earth Trilogy from Hugo Award winning (three consecutive times) author N.K. Jemisin introduced us to a world of geologic magic and apocalyptic seismic activity. Jemisin’s new Great Cities series introduces us to a fantastic world much closer to home: New York City. In the contemporary fantasy world of The City We Became, every city has a soul, and New York has five. Which is good. They’ll be needed to stop the ancient evil that’s waking beneath the earth. 

Cover of The Starless Crown by James RollinsThe Starless Crown by James Rollins

Whether he’s scuba diving, spelunking, or writing at a literary athlete’s pace, James Rollins stays busy. His previous work includes the SIGMA Force series, Tucker Wayne series, and more, but with his forthcoming epic fantasy The Starless Crown, Rollins is returning to his fantasy roots in a BIG way. This book has pretty much anything you can ask for, and by that I mean a scary moon, ancient ruins, conspiracy, friendship forged on the dangerous road, and bat people!

Cover of The Jasmine Throne by Tasha SuriThe Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri

Tasha Suri’s The Books of Ambha Duology was met with critical acclaim, many awards, and a Locus nomination. With The Jasmine Throne, she has begun a new epic fantasy trilogy about an exiled princess with a despotic brother and a priestess in hiding. They’ve got each other, forbidden magic, and an empire to take on. If you like your fantasy epic and your fantastical worlds evocative and expansively immersive, check out the Burning Kingdom trilogy now. 

Cover of In the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellanIn the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellan

Brian McClellan is an epic fantasist whose tales of military magic and adventure frightened, thrilled, and inspired many, many readers (including me. Hi Brian! The Power Mage trilogy got me in trouble in school because I’d pay literally no attention in class and just read, so thanks. But literally, thank you—it rocked). Long parenthetical aside, Brian McClellan is back with an all new epic fantasy series where magic is a finite resource, and it’s running out. Check out the Glass Immortals series, starting with book one, In the Shadow of Lightning

Cover of Black Sun by Rebecca RoanhorseBlack Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse

Rebecca Roanhorses’s new Between Earth and Sky series explores a fantasy world inspired by the civilizations of the pre-Columbian Americas. Political maneuvering, old and dangerous magic, and ominous prophecies haunt the holy city of Tova. And this year’s winter solstice just happens to fall on the same day as a rare solar eclipse. The Sun Priest says this event marks an unbalancing of the world. A prophecy says a god will return under a black sun. Uh oh. 

Cover of Isolate by L. E. Modesitt, Jr. Isolate by L. E. Modesitt, Jr. 

In his famous The Saga of the Recluse series, L. E. Modesitt, Jr. explored a world of high fantasy and diverging technology. With his new series, The Grand Illusion, he has taken on gaslamp political fantasy. Isolate and its forthcoming sequel Councilor introduce a new world where empaths have the ability to sense and manipulate the emotions of others. Only those categorized as Isolates are invulnerable to their influence and surveillance. If you love both fantasy and political thrillers, this blend of the two is the next series for you.
