2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Eighth Key

The Eighth Key by Laura Weyr

I loved the world building in this story, with its twists and turns, magic and mages. I liked the mystery behind who Lucian really is, and how he and Corwin complement each other in more ways than one. The characters pulled me in, and I thought the plot was an interesting take and weaving in of several genre tropes.

2020-2021 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Solstice Pudding (The Pudding Protocol Universe)

The Solstice Pudding (The Pudding Protocol Universe) by Angel Martinez

Absoluting charming and highly imaginative world building where humans join the various collective and cooperative space civilizations as the newcomers. The word (and world) building is amazing, giving readers a completely new way to assess how we humans, charming but clumsy, might fare if the aliens were our hosts and we were the guests of their societies. Brilliant juxtaposition of realities, really.
