I Must Betray You
If you enjoyed The Fountains of Silence, then you’ll love I Must Betray You.
“Sepetys is brilliant at bringing lesser known history alive! This story is set in Romania towards the end of the Ceausescu regime, and is a stark and relevant reminder that historical atrocities are often very recent (1989 is yesterday to me). A well researched, heartbreaking, eye-opening, and humbling story of 17 year old Cristian who is blackmailed into becoming an informer. This is marketed as a YA title but please, please don't let that stop you from reading an amazing book.”Polly, The Hickory Stick Bookshop

Daughter of the Moon Goddess
Celestial Kingdom: Book #1
If you enjoyed She Who Became the Sun, then you’ll love Daughter of the Moon Goddess.
“Where do I even begin with this book? The Daughter of the Moon Goddess is an enchanting, atmospheric, romantic fantasy that has captured my heart, mind, and soul. The story of Xingyin is one of sacrifice, determination, and love set in a rich world inspired by Chinese myths with fierce monsters, fiercer friends, and formidable immortals. Xingyin is the daughter of Chang'e, the goddess exiled to the moon - she will do anything to save her mother from the punishment placed upon her by the Immortal Emperor. Her quest finds her amid palace and soldier life, befriending the crown prince, the esteemed soldier of the Celestial Army, and making a name for herself through her skills in archery. This is one of the best books I have read in quite a long time!...As I closed the last few pages of this book, I left a part of myself between the lines, sitting with Xingyin in the palace on the moon, dreaming of what's to come.”Anna, The Well-Read Moose
