7 Queer Fantasy Books I Love

One of my favourite series of all time. I still can't believe I read The Dream Thieves years ago and was so conditioned not to expect queer characters from big authors and big publishers, that I didn't realise it was gay. And it is SO gay. Plus the story is moving and magical and will burrow into your bones. Read these books.

Everything about this book is so good - the POC, the relationships between the Crows, the world, the tension, the HEIST, not to mention Kaz/Inej is the best - but I was so happy to find out there were queer characters and a slow burning m/m romance. Plus Jesper is badass and I'm SO here for gays who are awesome shooters.

I think everyone who's read The Diviners will agree that Henry is adorable as heck. That he's gay just makes him an even better character. There's a lot of commendable stuff about The Diviners & Lair of Dreams, but the queer rep and the POC are just as important as the lyrical, immersive storytelling and the intricate world building.
