Sam is a collector whose job is to bring damned souls to hell. Going about his daily routine he discovers a soul on his list is innocent and an innocent soul in hell means the end of the world. But some powerful forces want just that.. What follows is a well-written, action-packed, horror noir adventure across New York City as Sam jumps bodies, fights demons, and avoids all powerful angels and NYPD SWAT Teams, making Dead Harvest, the first in a series, the best kind of entertainment.

This is the perfect book for readers waiting for the next book in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Fire and Ice series. Politics and magic.  Assassination and scholarship.  Old ways in conflict with a changing world. Sanderson may be best known for completing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, but if The Way of Kings is any indication, his own Stormlight Light Archive might be the next great fantasy epic.

When Lena sets out to learn the truth about her long lost father, she wonders if she, too, is violent, wild, peculiar.  Drawing heavily from the gothic tradition and set in an alternative version of the late 1800's, McQuerry's exceptional novel is both bildungsroman and roaring steampunk adventure--flying machines and goggles included.  It's also a thought-provoking examination of difference, criminality, science, and faith which features a strong protagonist trying to navigate a culture of genetic prejudice and enforced femininity.  Don't judge by the cover--you don't want to miss this gorgeous ride.
