  • Rook: Allie's War Episodes 1-4 on July 22, 2011

    A sprawling epic fantasy, Rook introduces the reader to Allie, a young woman who learns that not only is she a member of the mysterious race of seers that populate the earth, she is special - a "bridge" that will somehow bring about war and the end of the world as we know it. Weaving an alternate history into the narritive, J. C. Andrijeski spins a tale that's hard to put down. I'm looking forward to the next book!
  • The Society of Secret Cats on Aug. 02, 2011

    Well-written short story that will make you look at your cat differently. De Kenyon spins a tale of fun and imagination that any young person should enjoy.
  • Skin and Bone on Aug. 05, 2011

  • Afterburn on Sep. 08, 2011

    Karen Abrahamson's "Afterburn" is an urban fantasy with an original premise: There are people out there who can reshape our world simply with vellum and ink. Many of these "Gifted" work for the GSA and keep the nation's borders in their proper place. The world and the characters are well drawn, especially the heroine, Vallon Drake. Vallon finds herself in the center of a power struggle in the Department of Homeland Security (which wants to control the GSA)and a murder suspect to boot. Along the way, she uncovers a plot to destroy Seattle and must find a way to put a stop to it while dodging those who want to arrest or detain her. The book is fast paced and while the romance was "spicier" then I like, overall the writing is fantastic. I hope this is not the last we see of Vallon Drake!

  • The Hands of God on Dec. 15, 2011

    It is said that God gives us gifts to use for His glory. There are times, however, that we look with longing at what we cannot do and ignore the abilities we’ve been given. And what if we’re dealt a devastating handicap? Could we possibly look past it and make use of the gifts we have been granted? One answer to this question is found in Gerald Weinberg’s excellent book, “The Hands of God.” Pamela Ruka is a teenage girl who lost her hands in a horrific accident years before. She lives with her alcoholic grandfather, who sees her as little more than a ticket to a big monetary win in court. She spends her days at home, locked inside when she is alone. But Pamela has a unique gift. She can see patterns where no one else can. She first uses this ability to pick winning horses in races, which brings her to the attention of her grandfather’s bookie, West, one of several interesting characters that populate this novel. But Weinberg doesn’t leave us in a simple story about gambling on the ponies. He shows us that Pamela’s gift has a number of applications – some more life-changing than others. Throw in some speculative technology and some unexpected twists and turns and you have a page-turner of a tale that explores what we do with the gifts God gives to us. I found myself rooting for Pamela as she struggled to chart her own path in a world where everyone else had a plan for her. For a great story with a Christian message that will keep you engaged from beginning to end, I recommend “The Hands of God.”
