Spellslinger (Spellslinger #1) 12, Jan

Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell is a little bit like an Old West spin on Harry Potter. It’s got the thrills of a Marvel movie, the intrigue of a Brent Weeks novel, and a pinch of paradoxical post modern sincerity to make it all mean something. It’s a dang good time to boot. 

Chasing Graves (Chasing Graves Trilogy #1) 10, Jan

 

Chasing Graves masterfully combines gallows humor, deep word building, and compelling character centric narratives into a surprising and intriguing story. It dares to answer the question: How valuable is your life when you’re already dead? 

Where Oblivion Lives (Los Nefilim #1) 05, Jan

Where Oblivion Lives resonates off the page with a song like no other. Teresa Frohock’s paper symphony plays this visually captivating, pulse-quickening story with the deepest feeling. It strikes upon the heart like a bow on a violin.
