HOPE & RED makes its first list!

From a Barnes & Noble post titled "2016 Books SF/F Editors Want You to Read"

Hope and Red is hands down one of the most exciting fantasy debuts I have read in years. Author Jon Skovron takes the usual fantasy tropes and makes them feel new and wonderfully fresh again. Reading Hope & Red for the first time reminded me of when I first fell in love with authors like Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson and Scott Lynch. The main characters – Hope and Red – are a trained warrior and a thief, who will do anything it takes to survive the corrupt underworld they were born into, even taking a risk and working together. You’re going to love spending time with them in this world, and when you’re done, you’ll be dying for the second book, Bane and Shadow. —Devi Pillai, Editor
