SILENCE FALLEN proves that time and again, Mercy Thompson is a delight to tag along with. Even after all these years, Briggs manages to surprise and enthrall with every page.

A few self-pubs made the cut this week, did any of them make it into your Best or Worst?
The Rainbow Toots strike again, smiting the cover of a Thea Harrison book that we’re all so excited to read anyway.
Other than our first cover, High Fantasy won the cover coverage this week.
THE TURN takes Hollows fans back to where it all began, a world where witches, vampires, and all sorts of magic are hidden away behind the sexism, racism, and revolution of the 60’s.
Great books don’t always have great covers…
Dark and light, detailed objects and Urban Fantasy heroes, this week’s covers span the gamut.
The Jane Yellowrock books have the distinction of being a long running series that I can’t keep track of at all but enjoy from book to book. I don’t know what makes details slide away, the similarity of Jane’s nicknames for people? The complexity of mythologies that always underpin the “big reveal” at the end? I know Ricky is gone (in a rather unsatisfying way), Jane and Beast are partners, and vampires are dangerous. Additional details are refreshed in the opening chapters.
MONSTRESS is a dark, dark breed of fantasy, where the magic and monsters in the world are more likely to prey upon children’s bones than protect them. Wade into the horror and cruelty, plunge into this war, and even the hope hidden within carries betrayal and sadness.
There are some great covers this week, but nothing captures the devil-may-care badassery of the Price family than barefoot trapeeze work with dynamite.
