Wicked As You Wish (A Hundred Names for Magic, #1)
This was such an ambitious fairytale and mythology mashup! Like welcome to a whole NEW WORLD (literally) as we enter the Royal States, where magic is normal and Ice Queens freeze whole countries, a kiss can turn you into a frog, princes go missing, and girls can cancel out magic to save their best friends. It's packed with plot and details too, and layers of history and world building. If you're into books that focus on the action, the journey, and the world, THIS is for you. Also I'm so here for books where diversity is celebrated, not tucked into a forgotten corner. Tala is Filipino, Prince Alex is queer, and we have so many side characters who are POC and queer (and an enby Loki!). Also I appreciated that it wasn't just fairy tales, but we had Robin Hood, Norse mythology, and Firebirds and Baba Yaga in there too.
