I may be a little biased because Jack Campbell is my favorite living author, but I loved THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR. This book picks up about two weeks after THE DRAGONS OF DORCASTLE ended, and you’re thrown right into the action. The intense battle and action scenes are one of the places where Campbell’s writing really shines. There are a lot of urban and epic fantasy novels that make me cringe when I read their battles, but Campbell’s years of military experience help him write realistic battles.

OUTPOST is a very different book from ENCLAVE. Instead of a group of teens governing themselves a la THE LORD OF THE FLIES, Deuce, Fade, Stalker, and Tegan find themselves literally adopted into the town of Salvation.

Aguirre still writes well and the characters have maintained believable consistency in their new circumstances, but the dramatic departure from the debut was jarring to say the least.
Lorelei King, the actress who also narrates Janet Evanovich and Patricia Briggs books, brings Charley to life in the most vibrant and hilarious way possible in FORTH GRAVE BENEATH MY FEET. It’s doubly fitting that this is the same actress who voices both Stephanie Plum and Mercy Thompson since Charley Davidson since she’s pretty much a blend of those two characters.
