First, I have to tell you that I am a huge fan of Tess Gerristen and that I have read all of her work. I think that she is one of the best mystery suspense thriller authors of this decade.
Juliet Dark is a pseudonym for Carol Goodman. Goodman writes historical gothic fiction and literary mysteries. This is her first romantic paranormal fantasy and she succeeds beautifully. The imaginary she creates is vivid and her attention to detail has you immediately loving the small college town of Fairwick in upstate New York and the characters residing there. “The Demon Lover” is the type of book you want to savior, like that perfect cup of coffee on a cold fall morning.

The Passage has to be one of the most beautiful, horrifying, page turning, heart stopping books I have ever had the pleasure to read. It brings to mind Stephen King’s The Stand.

A Discovery of Witches is the first in an exciting trilogy about witches, vampires and dameon. It is a mystery, a love story and an adventure laced with history. One of the best books I’ve ever read.
The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer, fed my love of conspiracy theories as he took me on one heck of a ride in Washington D.C.

As a 16 yr old, Jacob no longer believes his grandfather’s tales, until something terrible happens to his grandfather and he is forced to view things differently. Jacob sets out on a journey to discovery …
For those of you who don’t know, Mira Grant is actually Seanan McGuire author of the popular October Daye Series. I loved Feed her first book in this zombie trilogy, and I totally flipped for Deadline.
This series gets better with every book. Downpour has to be my favorite in the series so far.
