    From the rugged mudflats of the Northwestern frontier to a rusting strip mall, West of Here is a conversation between two epochs. In his eagerly awaited second novel, Jonathan Evison tells the stories of the people who first inhabited the mythical town of Port Bonita in Washington State from 1887-1891. Moving ahead more than a century to 2005-06, he introduces those who live there now and must deal with the damage done by their predecessors.

    This comes together slowly and is sometimes hard to keep up with the characters and their connection.

    Dark fantasy goes hardboiled in Book II of the hard-hitting Grimnoir Chronicles by the New York Times best-selling creator of Monster Hunter International. The Grimnoir Society’s mission is to protect people with magic, and they’ve done so—successfully and in secret—since the mysterious arrival of the Power in the 1850s, but when a magical assassin makes an attempt on the life of President Franklin Roosevelt, the crime is pinned on the Grimnoir.

    ...it can be done. Lots of action and characters that you get attached to and relate to due to Mr. Correia's development of each of those characters.

    Imagine you have a painting, a Madonna and Child, that has been in your family for years. It is beautiful, serene and spellbinding. For a long time you take it for granted, but your curiosity gradually grows, and you call in the experts. They get excited. What if that old family painting was thought to be by a pupil of Leonardo da Vinci - or even the master himself? You start researching, communicating with academics and institutions worldwide.

    Story

    Not a FANTASTIC story. She draws conclusions that seem far fetched - too far fetched. I am willing to be flexible and to see outside the box - but this was too much... Maybe if I would have had the photos and maps to refer to it would have been different.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Story

    This is a great start - hope the rest of the series continues on the same path! Tons of action, fun and just different enough to keep my attention. It moves along and the character development is detailed and interesting. Correia has done it again and Pinchot adds to the story and the characters. Good read!

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
