Fantasy Fiction: Visit a Land of Magic
"Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."
~J. R. R. Tolkien~
Fantasy fiction keeps growing in popularity. Rebecca Yarros’ Fourth Wing took us by surprise when it flew out the door, but there have been other great fantastical stories that have recently arrived on our shelves. These seven novels will take you on a trip to lands of gods, monsters, werewolves and more.
From award-winning author R. F. Kuang comes Babel, a fantastical takedown of 19th-century imperialism that grapples with student revolutions, colonial resistance, and the use of language and translation as the dominating tool of the British empire.
