Joanne M Harris14,99 € 13,94 €
A perfect autumnal read, Orfeia by Joanne Harris is delicious, dark and dreamlike; a retelling of the Orpheus myth, subverted to reflect the depths of a mother’s love and grief.

Piranesi lives in the House, perhaps he always has. The House is comprised of hundreds of halls and statues, like a vast temple to ancient knowledge. It is filled with tidal waters and clouds, with fish and with birds. The House is Piranesi’s whole world and he is, with the exception of the Other, it’s lone human inhabitant. This is a cunning puzzle of a story, unconventional, enigmatic and quietly revelatory.

Fascinating and gripping, The Space Between Worlds has a great premise; multiverse travel which is only possible for a few. Of the 380 realities that have been unlocked, Cara is dead in all but 8. This is a multi-layered, gritty romp, dealing with elitism, power, family & abuse, with a f/f attraction for good measure. This is very much a non-stop, character driven, dystopian rollercoaster ride.
Neil Gaiman9,99 € 9,29 €
A gorgeous edition of this pitch-perfect fantasy and ode to childhood memories. Gaiman is a master storyteller, and if you haven't read this, then you really should!

Unique and magical, this is the perfect read if you've even dreamed of secret doorway to other lands, of love, adventure and danger.
Samantha Shannon10,99 € 10,22 €
Epic high fantasy of the culturally rich, historically inspired, densely plotted, sensuous, diverse & kick-ass variety. At 800+ pages it could drag, but instead this blend of wyrms, alchemy, legendary saints, mythic trees, secret female warriors, queens, pirates, dragonriders & witches is just a whole heap of fun.
S. A. Chakraborty8,99 € 8,36 €
A historical, ‘own voice’ Muslim, adult fantasy. Filled with complex histories inspired by the Islamic golden age and Ottoman Empire this is a story of ancestral grudges, family secrets, djinn warriors, blood purity, duty, justice and finding your own path. Absorbing and compelling.
Becky Chambers8,99 € 8,36 €
A deceptively simple tale of humanity living out among the stars; a story of what it means to be human, to live in community, to evolve & grow whilst still embracing our heritage, and how we relate to those who are different from ourselves. This is a quietly beautiful & profound novel full of warmth & wisdom, broad in scope yet intimate in detail. Utterly wonderful.
Christelle Dabos8,99 € 8,36 €
Translated from French. Atmospheric, fantastical worlds, manipulative villains, intrigue, secret plans, disguises, impossible situations, reluctant protagonists and endless twists & turns - what a wild, fun romp of a book.
N. K. Jemisin8,99 € 8,36 €
Complex, vivid world building and just astoundingly good. This is a fantasy to challenge the status quo and make you think. Absolutely brilliant.
Katherine Arden9,99 € 9,29 €
Atmospheric, fantastical, folklore inspired tale set in snowy, medieval Russia. A story of conflict between religion and old magic, house demons who protect the village and creatures who lurk in the woods. A perfect chilly fairytale for a winter's evening.
Erin Morgenstern8,99 € 8,36 €
Joyful and captivating, a tale of magic, puzzles and a hidden labyrinth filled with stories. Spellbinding!
