@erik i have been obsessed with N K Jemison’s Broken Earth trilogy (the audible versions are particularly amazing) hope to dig into her other works soon.
as a lot of the fantasy world is dominated by straight white dudes (don’t get me wrong, i love me some Tolkien), it’s really refreshing to be immersed in a fantasy series by a woman of color. she is bad ass.

Rebecca Roanhorse's "Trail of Lightning" is great. It's the first in what will be a series. The second is coming out this year. I second N. K. Jemisin, of course. Her Inheritance Trilogy is also fantastic. On the urban fantasy front, two that I enjoy are Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series.
@riayngrey Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve been trying to fill out my reading list with more diverse voices.
@riayngrey Turns out that two of my friends on goodreads have already read that and gave it *rave* reviews. I’m excited to dive in!
