The Inked by Kristina Streva sympathizes with the minority.
Victorian by Jordan Elizabet is almost as dark and brooding as it is spooky.
Christmas Magic by Catherine Kean shows love can go comically wrong once a spell is invoked.
Where the Magic Lies by Hermione Lee demonstrates all is not well in Fairyland.
The First Buds of Spring also by Hermione Lee brings magic into the classroom and draws a mortal into the other realm.https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/the-first-buds-of-spring?fbclid=IwAR2CKjF3W0binw6mqD-YT3vs_gvRFHbv8l-Mcx_CpRO0Swh3_fKIBYuyza4#
A SouthWestern Adventure: In the Footsteps of First Peoples: Mogollon, Hohokam, Salado and Sinagua by Michael Royea was non-fiction, but it set the background beautifully.
A Perfect Storm of Injustice by Jack A. Saarela was like a docu-drama in that it presented a fictionalized, but realistic account of a falsely accused man. It also dealt with real social issues.

I wasn’t sure what to think when I saw the cover and read the blurb. I wondered what sort of LitRPG would use cooking – and the talk of scoring points - was the heroine participating in a reality television show like Master Chef?
However, when I got past the uniqueness of the concept, I found Cookmancer Online was an absorbing read. Genuine gaming fiction, with a few twists. Apparently, Earth ought to have become uninhabitable, but it was saved by an artificial intelligence. The opposite of the TERMINATOR plot – but a certain amount of cyber paranoia remains. Is the artificial intelligence truly neutralised – and is it genuinely benign?
The villain is an ex-boyfriend, creating drama and tension. I immensely enjoyed my review copy accessed through Book Sirens.
