They’re not traditional, they’re alt history, but Sarah Gailey’s American Hippo duology features LGBT characters.

I just picked this up from the bookstore the other day and now I'm even more excited to read it!

I really liked them. It’s quite an interesting idea and I thought very well done.
I will expand your TBR pile.

My top 5:

Rawblood - Catriona Ward
The Last Namsara - Kristen Ciccarelli
The Ember Blade - Chris Wooding
Age of Assassins - RJ Barker
Priest of Bones - Peter Mclean

I don't have any least satisfying as I just stop reading if I'm not invested. Some books just aren't written for me.
I write about swords and birds and wizards and stuff.
