The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel (Mistborn) by Brandon Sanderson
The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel (Mistborn)

Heather Sturgill, August 6, 2012

Absolutely fantastic. A different flavor than the the earlier Mistborn novels, this new book in the mistborn world has a western gun-slinger feel that creates a unique fantasy experience.

Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math
Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math

Heather Sturgill, August 6, 2012

A wonderfully accessible book about mathematics. You don't need to have a degree in mathematics to enjoy this book, but neither will you be bored if you do. It is a very interesting look at how knowledge and development of mathematics has occurred throughout civilization.

Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal
Glamour in Glass

Heather Sturgill, August 6, 2012

Mary Robinette Kowal has developed her charming characters from Shades of Milk and Honey beyond their quaint Jane Austen-style existence to continue their story and build upon the remarkable magic-system that Kowal has created. The characters are lovable and fallible and the magic is interesting, diffuse and different from other fantasies. It is a wonderful bridge for lovers of Austin-esque books and fantasy books.

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder
Poison Study

Heather Sturgill, August 6, 2012

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Maria V. Snyder has created strong characters that you can love and fight for. This book is a must read for anyone out-growing young-adult fantasy, or anyone that just loves a good and easily accessible fantasy novel.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Graveyard Book

Heather Sturgill, August 6, 2012

This is a wonderful book of death, intrigue, love and life. Neil Gaiman writes like a watercolor, the edges of murder and horrors sit at the edge of the story, just out of focus rather than bludgeoning the reader in the way of so many horror writers. Though much of this story is sad, it is truly about being loved and growing up to face your demons.
