Sometimes there isn’t always time to sit down and crack open a tome of fantasy. Sometimes there isn’t even time for a medium sized book. So how awesome is it that there are bite sized and single serve books. Fantasy books to read in an hour or less. Which is what we are giving you a top 5 for on this Wyrd and Wonder Sunday.
The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy
An interesting group of people come together in an utopian and squatter town. The summoning and effects of a guardian spirit however do not quite go according to plan.
The Wayward Children by Seanan McGuire
The Wayward Children are a collection of short stories about the future and past of children who go to the Eleanor’s West Home for Wayward Children. Children who have slipped through a doorway, portal to another dimension or world. But after a while they are returned to us but are not the same. They can’t adjust back to our world and in some cases don’t want to be here.
The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo
A young noble is sent from the far north for a political marriage where she befriends Rabbit, a handmaiden.
A bandit walks into a coffeehouse, and it all goes downhill from there. Guet Imm, a young votary of the Order of the Pure Moon, joins up with an eclectic group of thieves (whether they like it or not) in order to protect a sacred object, and finds herself in a far more complicated situation than she could have ever imagined.
Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh
