Not the Killing Type

Barrett continues her winning ways with another mystery chock full of interesting suspects and a surprising denouement.


Unseen: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Unseen (July 02, 2013)

As lurid and sanguinary as any of Lena and Will’s earlier cases but a lot more distractingly kaleidoscopic, as generic professional criminals battle for attention with the far more compelling histrionics of series regulars.


You

Our lives are the ultimate game, but this doesn’t devalue those lives. It gives us the opportunity to realize we’re often playing to someone else’s script, someone else’s idea of the world.


Viral Nation

Viral Nation is at times rather twisting, but there’s always Clover’s tenacity and West’s giving nature to make the ride worthwhile.


Orkney

Sackville’s rare gift is for rendering the ordinary so distinctly that it becomes fantastic.


Crazy Rich Asians

Mr. Kwan knows how to deliver guilty pleasures. He keeps the repartee nicely outrageous, the excess wretched and the details wickedly delectable.


American Savage: Insights, Slights, and Fights on Faith, Sex, Love, and Politics

Beneath its often caustic wit, American Savage is on a healing mission. It’s about unification. That effort starts immediately.


Sisterland: A Novel

Sisterland is a reasonably engrossing if less-than-stellar effort from an author who can do better — and we don’t need psychic powers to know this.


Bad Monkey

Rare and irreplaceable — just like Hiaasen.


Red Moon: A Novel

There are enemies among us, Percy cautions, and sometimes the enemy is us.


The Riddle of Solomon: Book 2 in the Sarah Weston Chronicles

This book was fantastic. It clipped along at a fast pace but was dense enough that you got a lot out of the characters and the story.


Abaddon's Gate

Caliban’s War was one of our SFFWorld SF Books of 2011. Is Abaddon’s Gate a book for 2013’s list? On the strength of this: very likely.


King of Thorns

A fantastic middle book to the Broken Empire trilogy.


Behind the Night Bazaar: Jayne Keeney Pi in Chiang Mai

Jayne is a character you want to spend time with, she's clever and resourceful and though there are now several other series set in Thailand, few have a woman as the lead character.


Death of the Demon

[T]here are passages that I doubt I will ever forget, especially those involving Olav as he is first introduced, and as he makes his way across the city, utilizing urban foraging as the police force searches desperately for him.


Lexicon
Bookreporter : Lexicon (July 01, 2013)

If you’re looking for a futuristic novel with an edge, a lot of drama, and a fast-paced narrative, Lexicon should suit you just fine.


My Isl@m

Cleverly titled MY ISL@M with the “at” sign in place of the “a,” Nasr’s book contains the information that many non-Muslims have wanted to find but have been afraid to even ask about.


Out of Range
Bookreporter : Out of Range (July 01, 2013)

It’s no wonder that Out of Range is nearly impossible to put down. Pulse-racing cliffhangers end every chapter.


Second Honeymoon

...a true potboiler --- and I use that term with the utmost love and respect --- with enough action, twists and turns to fill two books, with more left over.


The Shadow Tracer

Gardiner lifts the suspense to an almost unbearable level as the reader is flying right along with Sarah and Zoe as they fly into uncertainty while constantly pursued by those with ill intent.
