Is your D&D class a Fighter with an attitude? Try Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
Perfect for fans of action-packed, snarky, science fantasy
Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time for undead bullshit.
Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers, and countless skeletons, she is ready to abandon a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If Harrowhark succeeds she will become an immortal, all-powerful servant of the Resurrection. Without Gideon’s sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.
Of course, some things are better left dead. Muir’s Gideon the Ninth unveils a solar system of swordplay, cutthroat politics, and lesbian necromancers. Her characters leap off the page, as skillfully animated as arcane revenants. The result is a heart-pounding epic science fantasy.
Is your D&D class a Sorcerer with a sidekick? Try Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of graphic novels alike
Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta.
As a sidekick and a supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are.
But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona’s powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit
Is your D&D class a Bard starting a campaign? Try Sunny Rolls the Dice by Jennifer L. Holm
Perfect for readers looking for a diverse cast of characters navigating adolescence
Sunny’s just made it to middle school . . . and it’s making her life very confusing.
All her best friend Deb wants to talk about is fashion, boys, makeup, and being cool. Sunny’s not against any of these things, but she also doesn’t understand why suddenly everything revolves around them.
She’s much more comfortable when she’s in her basement, playing Dungeons & Dragons with a bunch of new friends. Because when you’re sword-fighting and spider-slaying, it’s hard to worry about whether you look cool or not. Especially when it’s your turn to roll the 20-sided die.
