this may have been more what i had in mind when i started the favorite authors thread, now that i think about it. what good is a thread without at least a few book recommendations?
unlimited favorite authors, but only 1 or 2 books by them. the kind of book that you would give to someone who hadn't read either the genre or the author before and say "this is the best example of this author."
note: i haven't read a lot of books by some authors whom i consider to be new favorites, so i can only pick what i've read by that author. there may be better ones out there and i will get to them. * indicates that. also, i no longer buy some of my favorite authors, because i don't like the direction that they went, but i still have books that i think are wonderful.

hopefully the skin crawling/hair pulling won't be as bad for this one!

Oh, shouldn't have looked at this thread. I want to go over your list carefully to get suggestions, but it is long, and I must now bake pies! Will check back next week after the holiday is over. But, bep, just a heads up, in case you are not celebrating Thanksgiving, if you liked Courtney Milan's Unlocked, you will really like the trilogy, Unveiled, Unclaimed and Unraveled.
