|Assassin's apprentice |
by Hobb, Robin.
Assassin's Apprentice is the story of FitzChivalry's tragic yet wholly exceptional life. As an illegitimate child, this character always remained on the fringe of society's focus. Still, throughout Fitz's flaw-filled life, he leaves indelible marks on the politically important characters that surround him. I recommend this book for readers looking for characters that aren't perfect but who still try to do the best they are able. posted Aug 7, 2010 at 10:15PM
|The lies of Locke Lamora |
by Lynch, Scott, 1978-
Smartly written with clever dialogue, a bustling new world, and a level of violence that never lets you forget the stakes of Locke Lamora's game. posted Aug 7, 2010 at 10:06PM
|Luck in the shadows |
by Flewelling, Lynn.
This story is full of brisk action, good humor, and lovable characters. Undoubtedly, you will be eager to read the next tale in this series about two wickedly good nightrunners! posted Aug 7, 2010 at 10:02PM
|Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone |
by Rowling, J. K.
Harry Potter is for a multi-generational audience. The series is ultimately about the power of love and friendship. While "The Sorcerer's Stone" introduces readers to the world of Hogwarts, later books become progressively darker but never lose their optimism or sense of adventure. I recommend this book as a good, if rather obvious, starting point for your journey into Harry's world. posted Aug 7, 2010 at 9:53PM
|Across the nightingale floor |
by Hearn, Lian.
This is a delightful novel that moves quickly, buoyed by the author's deft writing style and swift pace of plot. It also sets fantasy fiction in a non-Western environment, a quality that sometimes seems like a rarity when perusing titles at the bookstore. posted Aug 7, 2010 at 9:47PM
