Set deep in the Russian wilderness, history and fairy-tale intertwine brilliantly in this tale of monsters, magic, and family. Not only is the story deeply compelling, but this novel’s colorful cast of mythical beasts and gods will surely send you deep into a Russian-folklore themed Wikipedia rabbit hole. Think of this as Medieval Russian Percy Jackson for grownups...what more can I say?! ~ Reviewed by Patrick Molluso

Mexican Gothic is a suspenseful, gothic horror novel that will leave you questioning reality itself.

Just when you think you know what is going to happen, you’re thrown off course by even more information. It is a book that will keep you reading long into the night, but read with caution, as you might just get nightmares! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

I just have one question... who gave Alexis Henderson permission to write such a fabulous debut novel!? The Year of the Witching is a dark feminist fantasy that follows a young woman named Immanuelle as she learns of her mother's past and the forces that conspire against her. As Immanuelle discovers the truth of her settlement's history and the Church that runs it, she soon realizes that the biggest threat may just lie in their own past sins. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

The Forgotten Kingdom is the second volume in the The Lost Queen Trilogy and it picks up right where The Lost Queen ended. Get a cup of tea and a scone and a comfy chair and be prepared to get lost in the dark, peaty Scottish mists of the 6th century British Isles and ancient poetry. Based on years of research and scholarly material that has been largely ignored or forgotten, this is for anyone who loves The Mists of Avalon. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Pullman’s second volume in The Book of Dust series, which expands on His Dark Materials. Lovers of this series will dive right into Lyra and Pan’s continuing saga, picking up when Lyra is 20. Lyra and Pan find themselves drifting apart, literally and figuratively, and at a loss as to how to put things right. When Pan witnesses a murder, they find themselves drawn back into the dark and sinister world of the Magisterium and its evil ways trying to find and vanquish the source of Dust. Along with Malcolm Polstead, but following separate paths, they seek to find the cause of the murder and the source of the Magesterium’s focus. Does not disappoint. It was a joy to read, and I look forward to the final book in this series. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
