Kristin Cashore

Kristin Cashore is an exceptional new voice in the fantasy genre whose characterisation, beautifully realised world and compelling narratives set her apart. If you love to be swept up and away by a novel then these are must-read books, from a master storyteller. Cashore grew up in the northeast Pennsylvania countryside as the second of four daughters. She received a bachelor's degree from Williams College and a master's from the Center for the Study of Children's Literature at Simmons College, and she has worked as a dog runner, a packer in a candy factory, an editorial assistant, a legal assistant, and a freelance writer. She has lived in many places (including Sydney, New York City, Boston, London, Austin, and Jacksonville, Florida), and she currently lives in the Boston area. Graceling, her first book, was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, won the prestigious Mythopoeic Award, and is already a New York Times bestseller. Fire is her second novel, and a third is on the way.

After finishing Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series, it’s understandable if you have a bit of a listening hangover. This seven-book fantasy series features a fan favorite strong female lead in 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien, and Maas’s writing has been described as "scary good." After all of the build up to the conclusion, hearing the last word of the final audiobook probably felt bittersweet. These epic fantasy series will be your next best listen.
