June Reads

Ill Wind – Rachel Caine “…fresh ideas no one else seems to be writing about…melding physics with metaphysics to create the ultimate urban fantasy read.” Buy

The Séance – Heather Graham

Countdown – Michelle Maddox “…that very rare kind of book: a thriller that is genuinely thrilling. This is action-packed, non-stop adventure, combining the physiological, psychological and technological in a story that grabbed me immediately and didn’t let go.” Buy

Third Degree – Greg Iles “Greg Iles is a fantastic thriller writer, with complex characterisations, interesting information, and thought-provoking scenarios…An engrossing read set in the timeframe of just one day, Third Degree should not disappointment fans, and will hopefully bring in new readers.” Buy

Sliver of Truth – Lisa Unger: The author’s Beautiful Lies was an interesting novel of a life built on lies. However, this companion novel takes things too far. The FBI, CIA, going from America to the UK, involving the Albanian mafia…it just seemed over the top, and thus didn’t engage me as a reader.

Bound to Love Her – Esri Rose “…social commentary involving the environment and real estate…this novel has something to say – which a lot of stories don’t…Fans of Tate Hallaway’s novels should enjoy this.” Buy

Midnight Brunch at Casa Dracula – Marta Acosta “Mil is sparky, with a sense of adventure, humour and – most importantly – an affable personality…the Casa Dracula series is more than just another vampire tale…plenty of social commentary, with a smart but not toffy intelligence.” Buy

The Action Heroine’s Handbook – Jennifer Worick & Joe Borgenicht

Blood Price – Tanya Huff “Originally published in 1991, Blood Price holds up well 17 years later…the novel has an important role in the history of urban fantasy in fiction.” Buy

Oh My Goth – Gena Showalter “…interesting enough to read it in basically one sitting.” Buy

Red Handed – Gena Showalter “…focuses on what’s dearly missing in teen fiction…and showcases fabulous world-building that I can’t wait to read more about.” Buy

Blacklisted – Gena Showalter “For fabulous world-building, how power corrupts, and thoughtful issues, look no further than Blacklisted for a novel with surprising depth.” Buy
