This science-fiction adventure is a 2022 Aurora Best YA Novel nominee. I liked the characters and enjoyed the story, though the editing was somewhat sloppy. It feels a bit like the Heinlein juveniles I enjoyed when I was young, without the 1940's stereotypes. #auroraawards

Nominated for the Aurora YA and Lodestar (Hugo YA) awards this year, this novel is a hard-hitting, fast-paced story that plays around with the usual YA fantasy tropes. I really enjoyed it and I love the gorgeous cover too.

This sequel to Beneath the Rising is one of this year's Aurora Best Novel nominees. The premise is interesting (especially if you like Lovecraftian cosmic horror), but I couldn't get excited about the plot or characters.

Time for another #20in4 readathon hosted by @Andrew65! I managed an hour already before work this morning. I'm hoping to spend most of the readathon reading from my Aurora Awards Voter Packet. #auroraawards

Andrew65 A good start, and looks like you have plenty of motivation to read. 1mo

A brilliant conclusion to an outstanding series! This saga of rival clans in an Asian-inspired fantasy world is a moving story of family, loyalty and forgiveness but also features great martial arts sequences and a suspenseful plot.

Nominated for a 2022 Aurora Best Novel award and a 2022 Hugo Best Series award.

This novel was nominated for the 2022 Aurora Best Novel award and the entire series was nominated for a 2022 Hugo award.

I liked this final book very much but it didn't amaze me the way Witchmark, the first book, did.

Finished my first book for the #MarvellousMay readathon, one of the 2022 Aurora Best Graphic Novel/Comic nominees. The story is lighthearted and fun, and I loved the cheerful colours of the artwork. I'm sure the story would resonate with anyone who has had to live with an annoying sibling! 😄
