A chilling and captivating book, THE MERCIES is a story of resilience. Taking place in a Norwegian village in the 1670's, it follows Maren, who watched as all the village men died in a storm, and has had to find a way to survive with those losses, as well as the grief that comes with it; as well as Ursa, the daughter of a merchant who was married off to a witchhunter before being brought north. When their paths cross both women's lives are changed forever, and they must find a way to survive the perils around them.
Beautifully written, this story left me chilled. It is not often that I have to put down a book, but there were several times I had to walk away from this one to just sit and think about it. A must read!
HIGHFIRE is a thrilling read, filled with the same humor and fast pace that made me fall in love with the Artemis Fowl series as a kid. Vern is the last dragon (that he knows of), so he spends his days hiding in the Louisiana swamp watching Flashdance and drinking vodka. A series of less than savory events lead to Everett "Squib" Moreau becoming Vern's personal assistant, and this mismatched duo ends up taking the swamp by storm. Featuring a crooked cop that makes the Joker look like a good guy, several less than sanitary swims in the swamp, and a whole lot of fire power, you won't want to miss this book!

I feel like nothing I say could convey truly how wonderful this book is. Reading it felt a little bit like a gift that I gave myself; It's fairly short, so from the first chapter you feel like you're already so deep in that if you only read a little longer you'll be able to finish it, and this, combined with the fantastic story , makes it a book you won't be able to put down. It's the story of two immensely powerful siblings; Kev, born during the 1992 LA riot spends most of his twenties in jail on Rikers Island, and Ella, who left home to get a hold on her powers face off against the systematic racism that has shaped their lives. An incredibly passionate and angry novella, this book is a must read for all fans of afrofuturism, of sci-fi, or honestly, of great stories in general

"I have been eagerly awaiting this installment of Dani and Carmen's story and was so excited from page one. There is action, political intrigue, forbidden romance, thrills, and SO MUCH girl power that I was practically pumping my fist in the air as I read. A beautiful companion to We Set the Dark on Fire, this might already be one of my favorite books for 2020."

"With ethereal language and swift plot, Emily St. John Mandel has created another masterpiece novel. She reimagines the Bernie Madoff scandal, creating a familiar but nuanced cast of characters who are both totally relatable and utterly abhorrent. This book will hook you from the get go, and sweep you up with its characters, plot, and dash of surrealism."
