Three Adult Fantasy Recommendations ----- Have you read any of these? ----- The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten is a darker fantasy novel with a magic system centered around necromancy. Lore was an interesting backstory and has to navigate the courtly world, where everyone wants to use her for something. Lore has some chemistry with more than one character, which provides some interesting interactions. The Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tann is based on Chinese mythology. Xingyin grew up isolated on the moon with her mother, The Moon Goddess. Events happen to where Xingyin has to leave her home and navigate the strict hierarchical waters of serving other Immortals in order to save her mother. Situations arise where she constantly has to choose between her heart or her duty. I cannot recommend Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik enough. It's a book that has really resonated with me. Spinning Silver is based upon Russian and Jewish mythology and follows the perspectives of three powerful women. Spinning Silver is an atmospheric read, with interesting characters, great character development, atmospheric settings, beautiful and engaging writing, fantastical and inspired elements, and with an ending that was both satisfying and comforting
