One of the Good Ones is a timely book long overdue, questioning how society views the worth of Black lives and their legacy.
The Shadow in the Glass by J.J.A. Harwood
Harwood's chilling debut infuses the classic Cinderella story with a layered, sensual, and embittered flavour — and transforms it into a more humane story where passion, desperation, and desires run high and happily-ever-after is not without cost.

The Kingdom of Liars by Nick Martell (The Legacy of Mercenary Kings #1)
