Debut Authors to Check Out This Month

  • Gretchen Berg, The Operator:  A Novel

Give These Authors a Try

  • Katherine Addison, The Angel of the Crows
    • In an alternate 1880s London, angels inhabit every public building, and vampires and werewolves walk the streets with human beings in a well-regulated truce. A fantastic utopia, except for a few things: Angels can Fall, and that Fall is like a nuclear bomb in both the physical and metaphysical worlds. And human beings remain human, with all their kindness and greed and passions and murderous intent.  Jack the Ripper stalks the streets of this London too. But this London has an Angel. The Angel of the Crows.
  • D. J. (Daniel) Palmer, The New Husband
    • The New Husband is a riveting thriller about the lies we tell ourselves from D. J. Palmer, the author of Saving Meghan.  Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you know them.
