STAFF READING SUGGESTIONS:
What We're Reading
Iced: A Dani O'Malley Novel
By Karen Marie Moning
After the wall crashes between the worlds of humans and fae, Dani O'Malley, a 14-year-old sidhe seer, is there to save humanity. No matter that her ex-best friend wants to kill her, an ex-cop wants her sword (one of two magical weapons that can actually kill fae) and one of the most dangerous men in Dublin wants her to work for him. The first in Moning's new series staring Dani O'Malley.
Amy KF., Hosmer Library
By Charles Portis
To me, this is the perfect book: memorable characters, a compelling historical setting, action, adventure, and straight-faced humor.
John K., Eden Prairie Library
A list of fantasy titles that center around an urban locale. Where the location or city plays a central role. Some call this "urban fantasy" but avoid that term since it has come to be defined as softcore erotica wrapped in teen angst.
Real Women in Fiction
by Kim B
Maybe you enjoyed The Paris Wife or Loving Frank... novels where the author researches a real person and writes a fictional account of her life. Lately there seems to be an increase in publication of these biographical novels. A few current titles are The Aviator's Wife and Z: a Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Enjoy entering their worlds!
