Queer SciFi and Fantasy: The Forgotten L in LGBT!

So someone recently questioned the availability of F/F (female-female) books in the Queer SciFi facebook group I am a member of. Seriously! In a queer group?

Now admittedly, there is not as much as M/F or even M/M but it is out there. According to my Goodreads account I have personally read 160 F/F books in the last year, not all scifi and fantasy admittedly, but even so. Here is the list of the 30 or so that were:

Doira’Liim (Beautiful Whisper of the Goddess Saga Book 1) by Krystal Orr

Doira'Liim (The Beautiful Whisper of the Goddess Saga, #1)Doira’Liim by Krystal Orr

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a story of two women from different tribes/races who are destined to meet, fall in love and change the future. The women’s love story is set against the backdrop of a developing war between their peoples.

Talliea Aldis, is from the diurnal, patriarchal Esu clan and desperate to escape an arranged marriage and Arizira Ahmanae is a huntress for the nocturnal Arnirans who consist of women only. The Esu and the Arnira peoples have not met for many generations and each believe the others to be a myth.

I really enjoyed this book as it is so much more than just a romance. It’s an adventure with fantastic world building and great characters. The Machiavellian plotting by the Moon Goddess and her acolytes, who include a wolf, is breath-taking.

I can’t wait to read the sequel.
