The Chronicle of Secret Riven: Keeper of Tales Trilogy: Book Two

Secret Riven’s tale will charm patient lovers of fantasy but likely frustrate readers looking for a thrilling adventure.


The Severed Streets

Gripping enough if insufficiently original to be a major standout.


D-Day: Minute by Minute
Kirkus Reviews : D-Day (May 21, 2014)

An accessible history that conveys the havoc and vast international spread of D-Day.


Reborn
Kirkus Reviews : Reborn (May 21, 2014)

This is great for readers wanting to return to Shadow Falls, but it won’t attract new audience members.


Dangerous Creatures

Prickly yet endearing Ridley makes a sturdy anchor for this expansion of the Caster world; fans will be pleased.


The Severed Streets

The plot is well paced and the stakes greatly raised; the mood is good and grim.


My Real Children

My Real Children is a beautiful novel about life, love, and loss, and—no pun intended—a truly memorable reading experience.


The Devil's Ark

It is a nicely written and surprisingly scary tale that might just get you looking in those dark corners of the room whilst you’re reading.


The Adjacent

I highly recommend this book to all fans of Christopher Priest as well as someone looking for a book that offers the sense of shifting realities as real as our own while offering you a different view of what we could have been and may become.


Another Great Day at Sea: Life Aboard the USS George H.W. Bush

For all the snap and snark in his prose, Dyer can't tamp down his generosity of spirit forever.


Skin Game

Epic, simply epic is the adjective I would use to describe Skin Game.


The Temporary Gentleman

The novel is a long lament, as heartbreaking as an Irish ballad. Alas, alas oh! But the words are what you hang on to. As Kipling knew, one must stay buoyant on a very dark sea.


Tibetan Peach Pie

There are many nice moments in “Tibetan Peach Pie.” (Explaining the title is not worth the effort.) But it’s mostly a string of anecdotes; the author doesn’t reach deep for genuine self-examination.


The Secret Woman

This is a wonderfully complex novel filled with plenty of secrets, a strong gothic atmosphere, a mystery involving a ship and missing diamonds, mind altering potions, a poignant love story, and fascinating characters that kept me entertained and guessing until the end.


Lost for Words

It’s simply an entertaining cartwheel of a book with a glittering razor’s edge.


Closed Doors

It is an impressive novel about an always controversial topic that perfectly executes the plot device of a child narrator.


Team Seven: A Novel

What saves these characters from dispiriting stereotype is Burke’s ability to endow each with real and palpable humanity.


The Three

Comparisons could be made with the structure of World War Z, but this is an altogether more insidious work. You’re presented with evidence and expected to put the pieces together yourself.


The Three

The Three is a gripping, deeply unsettling thriller that have you reading deep into the night and will stay with you long after the final page.


My Real Children

Science fiction elements add an eerie complexity to these deeply felt portraits.
