THE LAST DARK by Stephen R. Donaldson

VERDICT: BORROW IT
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Oct. 15, 2013
It goes without saying that a reader who enters the series without the benefit of the preceding volumes will be utterly lost. Definitively of a piece with what has come before; if you're a fan of Donaldson, this is indispensable. If not, of course, not. Read full book review >

THE LUMINARIES by Eleanor Catton
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 15, 2013

George's fans will be glad to see Havers back in action, even though, as ever, she's quick to land in trouble. And as for Lynley—well, he's as cool as ever, in more than one sense of the word. Read full book review >
SILENT NIGHT by Robert B. Parker
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: Oct. 22, 2013
The mystery is even less robust than Parker's own final cases for the peerless PI, but Spenser lets nothing him dismay. If this adventure lights the tree, expect Christmas tales starring Jack Reacher, Alex Cross and Hannibal Lecter. Read full book review >

Kirkus Interview
Jude Deveraux
author of EVER AFTER
July 1, 2015

New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux's eagerly awaited Ever After, the third novel in her blockbuster Nantucket Brides trilogy, continues the saga of the Montgomery-Taggerts, set on an island steeped in beauty and unforgettable romance. Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything—even her love life—for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly's acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants—which all too often means Hallie's boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down. "This sexy, lighthearted romp brings the series to a satisfying close," our reviewer writes. View video >
