Saint Death's Daughter by C.S.E.Cooney

Staff Pick

This coming-of-age tale follows the trials and troubles of Miscellaneous Stones, the powerful young scion of a family of necromancers with an allergy to violence. Cooney's writing is nothing less than poetry--a veritable feast of language set in a uniquely imagined world where the majority of people are gender fluid and magic is commonplace. The language is as funny as that of The Locked Tomb or Discworld, as well as reminiscent of the most depressed Jane Austen characters, only with more skeletons and macabre decor. Call it beautiful, absurd, vibrant, decadent, and the best--and weirdest--fantasy novel I've read this year.
