On this, the last day of the year, I thought I'd reflect on the debuts that I read since I started Fantasy Debut. Rather than attempting to rank a list of favorites, I came up with some stand-outs in several areas. Several debuts appear more than once.
The creatures in Thief With no Shadow by Emily Gee
The Princes of the Golden Cage by Nathalie Mallet
Joby in The Book of Joby by Mark J. Ferrari
