The fantasy and science fiction genres are without a doubt my favorites to read. Full of detailed world-building, otherworldly components, and fantastical elements, the books in these classes transport you to incredibly unique worlds abundant with mythical creatures, magic, and unbelievable concepts of time and space.
From sequels in well-loved series to new sagas from established authors and outstanding debuts, these are a few fantasy and science fiction novels to look out for this month.

1. Semiosis, Sue Burke
Only mutual communication can forge an alliance with the planet’s sentient species and prove that mammals are more than tools.
Forced to land on a planet they aren’t prepared for, human colonists rely on their limited resources to survive. The planet provides a lush but inexplicable landscape–trees offer edible, addictive fruit one day and poison the next, while the ruins of an alien race are found entwined in the roots of a strange plant. Conflicts between generations arise as they struggle to understand one another and grapple with an unknowable alien intellect.
