2018-2019 Rainbow Awards: Best LGBTA Contemporary General Fiction, Fantasy & Sci-Fi / Futuristic

And the Rainbow Award goes to...



1.
Anna Butler - Day of Wrath (Taking Shield #5)


Day of Wrath (Taking Shield Book 5)

"Coming into a series with the 5th book is always a challenge, especially with high tech space opera, but I still found myself drawn into this almost from the start. So much drama, tension, and mystery, with a covert romance that was actually more intense for being restricted to stolen moments in the shadows."

"This is the last book in an impressive scifi/space opera series, and it ticks all the boxes for a great book: Plot, Emotional Investment (Conflict, Angst, Romance), Character, Resolution and wonderful writing. One point off for a difficult, opening sequence that was hard to follow as it crammed too much information into an already complex story. Otherwise exceptional!"

"Wow, that one blew me away. Not a comfortable story, and one that is still resonating with me days after finishing it, but well worth your time as long as you're not just in it for the HEA. Excellent bi main characters and complex family and friend relationships in a realistic, exciting, devastating, and thoughtful SciFi space saga. Start with book 1 and read in order."


2.
Dorian Graves - Bones and Bourbon


Bones and Bourbon

"This is a great story that wraps you up in its story. The author does a wonderful job in creating a world that we know, but is completely new. The characters are charming, relatable and intelligent. If you are looking for a fun read this is it."

"Graves takes the reader on an unimaginable and creative quest with killer unicorns, huldras and furaribis. The story's landscape is surreal and otherworldly just like Alice's tumble through the rabbit hole. If you're looking for action, adventure and a story about the Fae that is completely different, you have to put this on your reading list. Remarkable!"

E.J. Runyon - Good People


Good People

"This was about as close to a perfect story as you can get. The characters were so beautifully drawn, I hated to put the book down, and always looked forward to when I could pick it back up again. The plot was filled with anchors and familiar elements, and yet surprised me at several turns. And, like every excellent story, this one will leave me thinking about it for a long time to come."
