Parable of the Sower, Octavia Butler. In a time of urban squalor, rampant violence, and deadly decay, anarchy rules. But for Lauren Olamina, a new hope is dawning when she leaves the chaos of L.A. and flees north with a tiny band of followers. (Amazon| Goodreads)
The Killing Moon (Dreamblood #1), NK Jemisin. In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law, and the Gatherers, the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe ... and kill those judged corrupt. (Amazon| Goodreads)
