  1. Great list! The Edge of the Abyss made my list this week, too, and I need to read Under the Pendulum Sun soon because it’s right up my street.

  2. Surprisingly enough, I’ve actually heard of one of these authors, despite the ‘hidden gems’ nature of the topic–I’ve read Intisar Khanani’s Thorn, which seems to be her most well-known work. You’ve written some really interesting pitches for most of your list. Will have to check them out.

  3. The Haunted Yarn Shop series was amusing, I might have to go back and read more of those. And What Kitty Did Next is on my TBR! (I need to read it soon so I can vet it as a possible gift for this holiday season.)

    1. Hah! Gift vetting is a brilliant excuse ๐Ÿ™‚ Personally, I thought it was completely brilliant, but I can’t speak for how die hard P&P fans react to these type of sequels.


  4. The only one I’ve heard of before is The Edge of the Abyss. I’m surprised it has so few reviews! I read some real rave reviews about that one too.
