Persnickety Snark’s FIVE Challenge, Day 1: Great Debuts

Today, December 21, is the first day of Persnickety Snark’s FIVE Challenge, and today’s particular challenge is…Great Debuts!

Adele’s list may be YA only, but I’m including all age brackets. I read quite a few debuts, but not all of them were published this year, as I tend to read things by availability and my ordered lists. There are probably many awesome books published this year that I may not read until 2011 or beyond.

[REVIEW] Dark Oracle – Alayna Williams

Alayna Williams
Dark Oracle (Tara Sheridan, Book 1)
Simon & Schuster Pocket Juno (US & CA: 25th May 2010; AU: 1st July 2010)

There’s an explosion at a government lab in the New Mexico desert. The site of fascinating work, its lead scientist is missing, and former criminal profiler Tara Sheridan has joined the search for him. But she’s facing danger on two fronts: from someone she grew up with, and from the government peeps who want the scientist’s files.

Tarot, quantum physics, mines, botany, geology, divination, serial killers…if any of these interest you, purchasing Dark Oracle would be wise. A mix of The X-Files and Alex Kava’s Maggie O’Dell series, this novel has enlivened urban fantasy with a smack of science that grounds the story with realism. Plus, there are definite wow moments – the climax features a character who truly is one with the earth, in jaw-dropping imagery.

Unfortunately, the sequel, Rogue Oracle, won’t be released until March. Too bloody long away…
