On Our Shelves Now
The Witch King is funny and anti-fascist and has some of my favorite world-building. Self-proclaimed chaos gremlin Wyatt is a trans witch, making him a target in a world where faeries hold all the power. Rising fascism in the faerie kingdom drags him back after he escaped to the human realm, forcing him to choose between his own freedom and freedom for all witches.
A New York Public Library Best Book for Teens 2021
To save a fae kingdom, a trans witch must face his traumatic past and the royal fianc he left behind.
In Asalin, fae rule and witches like Wyatt Croft...don't. Wyatt's betrothal to fae prince Emyr North was supposed to change that. But when Wyatt lost control of his magic one devastating night, he fled to the human world.
Now a coldly distant Emyr has hunted him down. Despite transgender Wyatt's newfound identity and troubling past, Emyr claims they must marry now or risk losing the throne. Jaded, Wyatt strikes a deal with the enemy, hoping to escape Asalin forever. But as he gets to know Emyr again, Wyatt realizes the boy he once loved may still exist. And as the witches face worsening conditions, he must decide what's more important--his people or his freedom.
