Finn Fancy Necromancy Finn Fancy Necromancy
by Randy Henderson

This was a great read and a romp of a good time! Primarily fantasy with the magic and such but some mystery and intrigue with a twist I did not see coming. I thought it was well written, had good character development and was imaginative....A great summer read or for whenever you want something a bit lighter. I'm looking forward to his next book.

The God of Small Things The God of Small Things
by Arundhati Roy

The topic is an important and painful one, but the writing is what really took my breath away. The rhythm of this book is unlike anything I've ever read -- the author tells us what will happen, then circles ever closer filling in details like a spirograph. If you care about Indian culture or classism in its many forms, read this book. But if you care about writing, let this book seep into your pores. (read more)

The Book of Strange New Things The Book of Strange New Things
by Michel Faber

This novel unfolds convincingly and quietly, affording the un-knowing reader all the delight of discovery, and the joy of learning 'strange new things' at a pace that's perfectly balanced between fast and slow, never forced, never weighty despite the weight of the concepts to be found, and never overwhelming in its internal or external musings. The author writes with a joyfully light touch, even in the depths of darkness. And this novel must surely be one of the best I've ever read. (read more)

Promise of Blood (Powder Mage Trilogy) Promise of Blood (Powder Mage Trilogy)
by Brian McClellan

As a lover of fantasy and an amateur French Revolution scholar I found 'Promise of Blood' to be fascinating. Author, Brian McClellan, combined 'sword and sorcery' with gunpowder and guillotines, thus creating powder mages; and the result was a layered magic system with lots of intrigue and action....Expect political intrigue, gripping characters, and lots and lots of action.
