A fantastical adventure about the bonds of sisterhood set against the ambiguous morality of the high seas.
THE FINAL CURSE OF OPHELIA CRAY

With an explicitly asexual protagonist in Ophelia and positive fat representation in Betsy, this book also combines the queer inclusion and body diversity that made Our Flag Means Death resonate with so many.
Perfect for fans of lush fantasy like The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, the world-building scope of All the Stars and Teeth, and the curses and the sisterly bonds of House of Salt and Sorrow.
