Published: Del Rey - July 31st, 2012

Starting with Midnight Riot, Aaronovitch has created his own genre of supernatural crime novel, sort of grown up Harry Potter meets CSI: London, and it's really funny and really well done.  Whispers Underground is the third in the series and begins with the death of an American exchange student in the London Underground system. Quintessentially British in its self-deprecating humor and flamboyant one-liners, the narrative voice is fresh but cynical, and the recurring characters both magical and very human.   I for one, want more.

If you enjoy Gail Carson Levine or Shannon Hale, you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not pick up Enchanted. Alethea Kontis weaves dozens of fairy tale threads together to create a story that is at once cozily familiar and surprisingly original. Sunday Woodcutter's story is engaging, richly drawn, and utterly enchanting.

Let's face it, we're all sick of vampires. But there are vampires, and then there are vampires. The vampires in The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, for example, are twisted in the best of ways. Holly Black serves up one girl's quest for survival in the depths of a hedonistic world where the only thing worse than dying is going cold...and liking it. Rich language, morally ambigious characters, vampires who'd sooner slit your throat than have a conversation with you... What more could you want for your holiday season?

Curses and con men come together in this fast-paced whodunnit thriller. Cassel is the only member in his family not blessed with the ability to work curses with a hand's touch. Since curse working is illegal, this means Cassel's also the only one who isn't a criminal--or it would, except for one wrinkle: when he was fourteen, he killed his best friend. Three years later Cassel begins to suspect there's more to his friend's death than he knows. To get to the truth, he must go up against his family and the secrets they're determined to keep.
