Originally published individually as three books, this middle reader gem is a brilliant introduction for the young reader into Pratchett's subversive, clever and humorous fantasy.   Set in a department store and featuring a clan of nomes, it is part adventure, part satire and part parable and a whole lot of fun.   My tip of the hat to Terry Pratchett who is bravely facing the end of his writing career and will be sorely missed by fans of all ages.

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.
