With the release of Morning Star, the third and climactic volume of the Red Rising trilogy, Pierce Brown has completed what will likely go down in history as one of the most successful sci-fi series of the 21st century, and not just in terms of its chart-topping sales. This thing is a bloodydamn art
Book 1 in Jo Walton's Alternate Universe trio. What if America had never entered WWII ad Britain negotiated peace with Hitler and Mussolini instead? Find out what Britain and Europe might look like from the perspective of an unlikely upper class heroine and a police detective investigating her husband for murder. The book is easy to read, suspenseful and sometimes really fun as it juxtaposes almost real history with the "could have been."
Another of Michelle Moran's strong female leads gives us a wonderful look at Paris at the end of the Revolution. Typical of Moran, she shows us how determined young women develop the skills and knowledge it takes to not only shape history but become the icons of their time. Moran breathes life into her women and you will never think of Madame Tussaud the same way again.
