The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher cover

The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher sets up a new sci-fi world with a dystopian twist, as humanity has created artificial intelligence with its own conscious thought. The book begins with heroine Asha waking up with Pax and his sister Iris, although she cannot remember how she got there, or why they would want to take her onto their ship.

Box Office Poison by Phillipa Bornikova cover

The second in Phillipa Bornikova’s Linnet Ellery series, Box Office Poison, opens with Linnet facing a brand new case, this time more connected to the supernatural than before. With the emergence of ‘The Powers’ (vampires, werewolves and Álfar), humans were introduced to what goes on behind-the-scenes in the world, with the major players pulling the strings. This effect has been felt most heavily in the movie industry, as the beautiful Álfar, or elves, have been winning the most coveted parts in Hollywood, regardless of any acting talent. As a result,…

Watcher of the Dark by Joseph Nassise cover

He finds himself escaping into L.A., lying low in a hotel, where he is suddenly found and captured by the notorious Carlos Fuentes and his supernatural gang.

Fair Game starts off with a bang, opening with a pretty shocking prologue. From here we follow River and her brother Jake underground, to…

Two Serpents Rise by Max Gladstone cover

A fantasy series unlike any other continues with Two Serpents Rise by Max Gladstone, the second instalment in a series that mixes Gods, magic and high-powered action scenes. Although set in the same universe as book one, this book is very much separate and I think it could be understood without prior knowledge of the series. This time around, the series focuses on Caleb Altemoc, a risk manager and gambler who lives in the city of Dresediel Lex. He works for the Red King Consolidated, a prestige company which provides…
