"The third and final book in the Deepgate Codex. Strong beginning, but fades near the end with a somewhat disappointing conclusion. Despite some flaws,still an excellent scifi fantasy novel and must read if you've read the first two books in the series."
"Mild horror tale from writer Stewart O'Nan. The story is told from the viewpoint of four ghosts, spirits of teenagers killed on Halloween in a car crash. The events of the story take place a year later as the ghosts observe the lives of their friends, family, and the policeman who pursued them on the night they died."
"Compelling tale of the final night of a Red Lobster restaurant being shut down for economic reasons. The story is told from the viewpoint of Manny, the manager. His girlfriend is expecting, but also on his mind is the waitress he had an affair with. Simply great storytelling."
"The 3rd entry in Parker's Virgil Cole/Everett Hitch series, this book finds Cole and Hitch acting as deputies in the town of Brimstone. Back on the scene is Cole's would be lover, Allie, who continues to complicate the two gunfighters' lives. Add in an outlaw turned saloon owner, an Indian with a grudge, and a preacher with questionable morals/sanity and you have the recipe for trouble."
"Another entry in Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series, Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs investigate a criminal who not only commits crimes, but uses identity theft to set innocent people to take the fall. Another complex thriller from Deaver with his trademark twists and turns."
"In this dark fantasy novel, wizards use magic to conceal a young girl destined to be queen by transforming her into a boy. She grows up as a boy, not knowing her true identity and haunted by the malevolent spirit of her dead twin brother who died in order to make the magic possible. Full of magic, madness, and swordplay, this was a great read."
"Sequel to The Bone Doll's Twin, this novel follows Prince Tobin (who is really a girl) as he struggles to become a warrior like his father while trying to hide his true identity as the girl destined to be queen. Compelling characters and a unique story make this worth a look."
"Strong conclusion of The Tamir Trilogy. Tobin's true nature is revealed when he breaks the enchantment concealing his true gender. He becomes Tamir and must fight to claim the throne of Skala as destiny has foretold. To do so, she must defeat her cousin, who has his own claim to the throne."

"Richard Wolffe's inside look at Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. Goes behind the scenes to examine strategy, both successful as well as some of the mistakes the campaign made. Wolffe isn't afraid to let some of Obama's rough edges show, painting a more human view of the candidate and his reasons for running."
"Ted Kennedy's autobiography. Kennedy writes in a conversational style, and succeeds in bringing the reader inside the Kennedy family. His awe and love for his older brothers really comes through, as does his desire to serve the American people, especially those less fortunate than himself. His historical memories may be biased, but this is a great read regardless."
"After watching the new Star Trek movie, I felt like revisiting this novel, which also tells the tale of Captain Kirk's first mission as captain of the Enterprise. McIntyre has created a wonderful story and her side characters are as interesting as the characters from the television show."
