1) Erica Lawson – Soulwalker ()

I have never heard of this author before but I have to tell you this book was fricken awesome. I will be looking for more of Erica’s work for sure. –Norma

A loner. An outcast. A killer. A hundred years into the future, in a near-totalitarian state, there exists a group of feared Government assassins called The Black Shadow Corps. They are albinos, able to send their inner shadow to kill in the name of the law. Tarris Waite is leader of The Black Shadow Corps. But she is different from them, visibly marked by her pale blue eyes. Her teammates consider her a half-breed, to be feared and despised. A childhood accident left Tarris a paraplegic, yet she has never given up looking for a cure. Asher Hyrea is a medical researcher investigating nerve regeneration, and Tarris believes she may hold the key to her walking again. But Tarris soon learns that nothing is as it seems. Suddenly, even the most trusted members of her Shadow Corps team are suspect. Could her meeting with Asher be more than mere coincidence? When her loyalty is questioned, Tarris is left with no choice but to run. She is driven underground, where she discovers a horrifying secret that threatens the very fabric of society. Now Tarris is in a desperate fight to save her life and, more importantly, to save those who turned their back on her. But no one ever leaves the Corps alive.

2) Gun Brooke - Pirate's Fortune

I enjoyed the story quite a bit. Loved the main characters. Amazing. First time they actually touched in an even semi-romantic way had me holding my breath. Wish that had been showcased rather than wandering all over a side-plot. –Heidi C.

As war rages in the Realm, Weiss longs to escape from both the pirates and SC forces, but her growing affection for Madisyn makes her delay her plans. With thousands of lives in the balance as the final endgame approaches, will her delay cost them their lives? Book Four in the Supreme Constellations romantic sci-fi adventure series.

3) Q. Kelly – Third

As a person who loves history this novel certainly satisfies that love, with its accurate, detailed settings. To go from the past to the present as often as the author does and do it so fluidly was fantastic to read. The plot pulls the reader along nicely. Part of the reason this book is hard to put down was the characters were so well written and showed growth throughout the length of the novel. –April O.

Honorable Mention:



4) Dayna Ingram - Eat Your Heart Out

Funny, engaging and oh yeah... zombies. –Julie W.

Fast paced, action packed story with a different spin on the zombie genre. I really liked the chemistry between the MC's. –Tammy

Short romantic novella, nicely written. I would have enjoyed a much longer version of this story to get a better feel for the setting and characters, but it was still a good story. –Julie W.
