Claudia Gray has been one of the best Star Wars writers since the debut of the new canon and her win streak continues here. I am so excited about the High Republic launch and you will be too after Into The Dark, which will be both familiar and fresh to Star Wars fans new or old!

I loved this book! It's witty and sharp, and probably exactly what Maine would look like in an apocalypse. The main character, Journeyman, is a wayward soul who found himself in Maine at the time that all technology died. His life is interrupted when a person from his past arrives in a "supercar", and chaos ensues.

The Incredibles meets...data analytics. Anna works as a data cruncher for supervillains, an exceptionally boring occupation until she's injured on the job by a superhero. When the police decline to investigate, she takes matters into her own hands to uncover the true cost of "heroics," and discovers that the difference between villains and heroes may be more a question of good PR than morality. Thoughtful and extremely funny.

At times baffling, at times exuberant, at times your curmudgeonly profession uncle who doesn’t like smart phones, at times breathtaking, The Dreamed Part is less a book and more a mind-altering substance. Fresan writes about and towards that pliable mental state between waking & dreaming. A tremendous literary accomplishment with some of the most amazing prose about books & reading I’ve ever seen in a novel.

Ashlords is one you won't be able to put down!

You'll be frantically turning the pages in this total adrenaline rush!
