The Plover
Kirkus Reviews : The Plover (April 23, 2014)

A rare and unusual book and a brilliant, mystical exploration of the human spirit.


The Plover
Bookreporter : The Plover (April 20, 2014)

Touching, soul-searching and uplifting, while hilariously profane at the same time, Declan’s creative epithets are eloquent and frequent. The Plover touches that seeker of truth and redemption that lives within each of us.


Under a Silent Moon

Under a Silent Moon is a wonderful surprise. Your reading group will have lots of fun with this one, which leaves just enough characters standing at the end to promise more great things to come with successive volumes. And the ending will leave you breathless.


High Crime Area: Tales of Darkness and Dread

Horrific and creepy, HIGH CRIME AREA still manages to smartly critique American society and its uneasy feelings on race, sexuality, gender, academia and family dynamics.


Northanger Abbey

"If you happen to be an Austen fan, I highly recommend McDermid’s latest. Find a quiet place to sit and go for it. It’s a fun reward.


Now You See Me: How I Forgave the Unforgivable

Kathy’s story is a remarkable one, given the fact that she lost her two grandchildren in the bombing yet reached out to the perpetrators in love and forgiveness. Readers likely will have the same questions that Kathy herself asked following the bombing that took so many lives.


A Broken Hallelujah: Rock and Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen

This slender volume has very specific concerns, which are rendered deftly through a number of haunting episodes.


The Girl Who Came Home

If you’re a historical fiction fan, and/or interested in a romantic story about survival, love and self-discovery, then definitely take a chance with The Girl Who Came Home.


The Furies

This is a violent story, but it fits the plot and makes things edgier and frightening.


From the Charred Remains

There could definitely be tighter or more emotional prose at times and certain characters feel flat and underdeveloped. But for a light summer read, From the Charred Remains is a quick diversion.


Don't Ever Look Back

Friedman has created a great character here and this book is a terrific follow up to his debut novel, Don’t Ever Get Old.


Honor's Knight

Another great book in the Paradox trilogy that leaves you desperate to learn all the answers.


The Fell Sword

Miles Cameron is steadily building up toward something amazing and I eagerly await the next book in this series.


Afterparty

This is some of the best of what science fiction is doing in terms of exploring the neurological frontiers of consciousness.


The Goblin Emperor

There are certain novels or works of fiction in general that you as the reader/consumer can acknowledge have merit and things that work for others, but don’t work for you. Such is the case with The Goblin Emperor.


The Burning Dark

There are some wonderfully sinister moments in this well-paced tale, which often makes it uncomfortable reading, such is the atmosphere that Christopher evokes.


Zom-B Mission

All things considered, this is an improvement on the last book.


The Winner's Curse

The Winner’s Curse has intrigue and tension with political maneuvering without needing a chart to keep everything straight.


The Split Worlds

For this Austen fan this is the perfect blend of Regency and fantasy and I hope to be able to travel to this magical realm of Fae and manners and tea and cake again.


The Lost

Come for the setting and the crime, stay for the characters—you won’t regret it.
