The Mirror Empire: Worldbreaker Saga 1 by Kameron Hurley
The Mirror Empire: Worldbreaker Saga 1

Bev Melven, November 18, 2014

This is the kind of book you pick up when you are really hungry for story, not when you just need a snack. Epic fantasy for those who love the length and world-building and are tired of Tolkien-inspired worlds and stories and characters. Nothing here is familiar and all of it is fascinating. Get it!

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N. K. Jemisin
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1)

Bev Melven, November 10, 2014

This book made me an instant Jemisin fan - I seriously love this book. Powerful story, fascinating characters you love (or hate, or can't figure out how to feel about - just like people!), an intriguing world and ideas that make you thing. It was nominated for all the major fantasy fiction awards, and deserved it. The rest of the trilogy is just as great.

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
Shades of Milk and Honey

Bev Melven, November 6, 2014

I can't believe more people haven't read this book - it is wonderful! It is a perfect blend of Jane Austen homage and creative use of magic in fiction. If you are a fan of romance, fantasy, historical fiction or just a good romp, this book is perfect. There are four books in this series now, and they just get better.

A Day and a Night and a Day (P.S.) by Glen Duncan
A Day and a Night and a Day (P.S.)

Bev Melven, July 24, 2011

10 pages in and I was already blown away. His writing reminds me of William Gibson, somehow - impressively unique and spot-on descriptions of familiar places and objects. I'm thinking I'll need to read everything he's written...

The Girl with No Shadow (P.S.) by Joanne Harris
The Girl with No Shadow (P.S.)

Bev Melven, July 21, 2011

This book is more of Joanne Harris at her best. It was wonderful to revisit Vianne and Anouk five years after Chocolat, complete with magic and the truths we all ignore. Harris never disappoints!
