Deb and Keller have only felt truly at peace in an ice covered research tent at the bottom of the world, Antarctica. Perfection is the few weeks a year they can spend doing research together, falling in love, and escaping the "real world". But this year, Keller doesn't board the boat south. When they receive a distress signal from a cruise ship venturing too far, the research tour must attempt a rescue. Deb's worst fear is realized when she hears Keller is on that ship. My Last Continent is a story of adventure, exploration, love, and passion in Antarctica. It is one of those reads that you pick up when you can't find a book to fit your mood, and becomes an instant favorite. ~ Reviewed by Jess Elder

An amazing debut! This story follows four very different people as their stories interweave throughout the tenements of lower Manhattan, the sideshows of Coney Island, and a lunatic asylum in 1895. The characters, the setting and the mysteries are incredible in this novel. I could not put it down. ~ Reviewed by Jess Elder
