I had to add the extra claps for Children of Blood and Bone. Fantasy and sci-fi are my guilty pleasure, but the genres are utterly over-saturated with stories written by white men, usually from North America or the UK.
If you’re looking for more fantasy that packs a political statement, you might enjoy The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang. I’m a little biased because I read a lot of Chinese- and diaspora-authored books, but it is utterly incredible. The vast majority of the political events she includes are also real, drawn from China’s turbulent 20th century.
