Is it too late to wish you a Happy New Year?

If you’re anything like me your new year resolutions may have already fallen by the wayside. In fact, is it just me, or is there an end of January slump in the air?

But chin up! All the signs suggests they’ll be plenty of excellent fantasy literature in the year ahead. Here are the books we can’t wait for in 2017.

Hover over the covers to see what our reviewers said about each book.

No cover yet: Saladin Ahmed‘s The Thousand And One. Kevin says: Saladin Ahmed’s Hugo-nominated Throne of the Crescent Moon had some great worldbuilding and political intrigue, so I’m dying to see what comes in this sequel.
