FRACTURE

by Susan Cummins Miller

The Frankie MacFarlane Mysteries

“You don’t have to be a geologist to enjoy a mystery based on geology, but chances are good that after finishing HOODOO, you might just hustle out to the nearest rock pile and begin poking around. The enthusiam that Miller, herself a geologist, has for her subject is infectious.”- Mystery Scene

“Well-developed characters, a lyrically drawn sense of place, a budding romance, and the importance of family and friends distinguish this mystery series.”- Booklist

“A rollicking pentimento of fieldwork gone afoul!”- Geotimes

“Assured and erudite.”- Publishers Weekly

“A gripping thriller, exciting and eager to lure the reader into a labyrinth of human deceit…Attention Hollywood- this is the stuff from which blockbuster movies can be made!” Midwest Book Review

Patrick Rothfuss Author- THE WISE MAN’S FEAR

THE WISE MAN’S FEAR

by Patrick Rothfuss

“For most of you this review is in no way necessary. A simple “The release date is March 1!” is more than enough. But THE WISE MAN’S FEAR deserves all the praise it gets, so here goes…

The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two. The story continues. Our hero Kyothe is still at the Univesity, still up to his eyeballs in debt, and still on many a shit list. Trouble is his middle name. Kyothe Trouble Bloodless. Herein is told more of his education, of his continuing pursuit of a certain young lady leagues out of his league, and of his search for the truth behind the mythic powers that be and the reasons behind his family’s death. Along the way he faces many a trial, by fire and mercenary and Fae, oh my! And a bit of court blood of even the most jaded among us boiling…and freezing, o yes. It ain’t easy being a legend, oh no.

Meanwhile, back at the bar, in present day (two), things set in motion in Kvothe’s youth are coming back to haunt him…and those around him…and the rest of the lands.

The story is long and involved, but it is neither as long, nor as involved as it could have been. What others might explain, and explain, and explain some more…in a hundred pages…our friend Rothfuss does in just a few (see chapter fifty-two for example). The story’s all there, yes, but we move quickly to the good parts…we cut to the chase. And what a chase it is.

For those of you who worried that Day Two couldn’t possibly live up to Day One, you now put those fears aside, wise or not. The promise made by THE NAME OF THE WIND is more than honored in THE WISE MAN’S FEAR. Oh, yes. Can’t wait for Day Three.” DAW, $29.95

Boyd Morrison Author- THE ARK

THE ARK

by Boyd Morrison

“There a theories abounding about the Ark (no, not the Covenant)- that huge wooden boat that some people think sits on a mountain called Ararat on the border of Turkey and Iran. Archaeologist Dilar Kenner’s father is missing and she doesn’t if he’s still alive. His life’s work was to find Noah’s Ark. An old friend calls her and tells her he knows something very, very important regarding her father, that she is in danger and so are billions of other people. She meets him in an airport lounge and as he’s trying to tell that she’s not safe, he is murdered- right in front of her. Thus begins a frantic pace to keep from getting killed and find the answers to this puzzle. The action carries you along while you hold your breath to find out what’s going to happen next. It’s a fabulous adventure chock full of interesting places in the world and curious information and ideas about Noah’s Ark. It’s meticulously researched and has a chilling conclusion that you don’t want to miss. Pocket Star pap, $7.99.” – BD

Madeline Roux Author- ALLISON HEWITT IS TRAPPED

ALLISON HEWITT IS TRAPPED

by Madeline Roux

The Review was taken from THE PLOT TIMES, a publication of Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore

“Ok, are we burned out yet on zombie apocalypse stories? Well, my surprising answer is a hearty NO! Madeline Roux has written a unique, funny, and thrilling adventure with a twist. Her heroine, Allison is trapped, just like the title suggests, facing a zombie outbreak. She works in a chain bookstore, Brooks and Peabody, and is trapped along with her manager and four others in the break room. These back rooms, for those not in the know, are usually depressing enough already. But being trapped with nothing Mountain Dew and nacho flavored Doritos to consume is a real challenge. Allison turns to her laptop and uses the military emergency wireless network to start a blog. While she and her companions face orange lips and fingers, along with a caffeine high, Allison reaches out to others, finding comfort and much needed information about the world outside the stifling break room, which by the way, lacks adequate reading material for being in a bookstore. Allison is desperate to find information about her mother, and soon realizes that she and her companions will have to venture out to face the ravenous, but slow moving zombiies and the sometimes even more dangerous humans. Luckily Allison’s axe wielding skills improve with time and practice. I higly recommend this unique take on the popular zombie genre. St. Martin’s Griffin, tpo, $14.99”- LNT
