Ken Liu

The Grace of Kings

For such a big book, this felt like a fast read. Liu’s deeply creative world-building elevates this fantasy to the stratosphere. You get a real sense of different cultures, kingdoms, myths and magic. And when these things start to clash, you’re hooked until the last page.

Félix J. Palma

The Map of Chaos

Parallel universes, killer androids, and H. G. Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle fighting the Invisible Man. You already know whether or not you will like this book (though if you're still on the fence for some reason, let me add dinosaurs, King Kong, a dragon, and Nazi bombers). Yes, it's slightly corny, but it's a fun metafictional story. It takes liberties with both history and science for the sake of adventure, and throws both into the blender for the climax, but remains internally consistent and believable. Palma's world-building is creative even while he draws from well-loved tropes and familiar personages. His old-fashioned narration is charming if a bit flowery. The story starts out rather slowly because, as in The Map of Time, the reader can't at first see how the different plot lines are related. But the book gains momentum and blends all the different story lines together for a satisfying climax.
