The Lost City of the Monkey God--EXTENDED FREE PREVIEW (first 6 chapters): A True Story

It is hard to feel anything but sympathy for Preston, however, given that he ended up suffering so grievously for the sake of this book.


Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis: The Vampire Chronicles

After twelve books, Rice has done something new with the vampire genre. She’s made them boring.


The Guns of Empire

The Shadow Campaigns has consistently been an impressive series for how well it delivers on so many levels of entertainment, as well balancing tropes and upsetting expectations.


Empire Games

Empire Games is a challenge, but a worthwhile one. It won’t be for everyone, but there’s a lot to enjoy if you’re up to it.


The Heart of What Was Lost: A Novel of Osten Ard

It is an excellent piece of fiction from that standpoint and from the standpoint of a fan of both Tad Williams and Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m even more excited to read The Witchwood Crown, the first volume of The Last King of Osten Ard in the spring.


The Burning Page

If you’ve read the first two and liked them, you’ll certainly enjoy The Burning Page.


Masks and Shadows

Masks and Shadows is an elegant literary symphony in which the author displays mastery of nuanced characterisation, romance, opera, intrigue and dark alchemy.


Seriously Shifted

Seriously Shifted was another hilarious read from Tina Connolly, dealing with some heavier themes with a very light touch.


A City Dreaming: A Novel

Is A City Dreaming Polansky’s most accessible work? No, probably not. Is it his most ambitious book to date? It just might be.


The Wicked City

Even for a series launch, too much is left dangling.


The Believer
Kirkus Reviews : The Believer (January 17, 2017)

Suspenseful and primed for Hollywood adaptation, this is escapist fiction at its best.


My Life, My Love, My Legacy

A touching memoir from an important figure in the civil rights movement.


A Puzzle to Be Named Later

The Puzzle Lady, who seems to improve with each new adventure (Presumed Puzzled, 2016, etc.), spreads red herrings with reckless abandon this time out.


Carve the Mark
Kirkus Reviews : Carve the Mark (January 17, 2017)

Brimming with plot twists and highly likely to please Roth’s fans.


Little Deaths: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Little Deaths (January 17, 2017)

Sharply rendered literary noir, compelling enough to forgive a slightly left-field resolution.


The Road Ahead: Stories of the Forever War

These stories provide plenty of revelation on the nature of the war and the soldiers who continue to fight it.


Tears We Cannot Stop

The readership Dyson addresses may not fully be convinced, but it can hardly remain unmoved by his fiery prose.
