City on the Currents, Brian S. Matthews. Sequel to the first novel New Wilderness. Again, fast-paced and "un-put-downable"!! The characters and plot are fleshed out, it's just what you imagine would happen in an apocalypse - but it's not finished yet!! third installment still to come, and not to be missed.
Brilliant 11-year-old Flavia de Luce lives in a beautiful English country home in the 1950s with her widowed father, the spacey stamp collector, and two reliably nasty older sisters, Ophelia and Daphne. An ancestor of her family—an accomplished chemist—left a fully equipped laboratory in the mansion's attic. Flavia spends the majority of her time there, nurturing a deep fascination with, of all things, poison.
A Game of Thrones-- an insanely complex political thriller set in a fantasy world that finds itself with one throne and five contenders. You never know which of your favorite characters is going to die or which new favorite you might meet on the next page. It really is suspenseful in that way.
