SATURN RUN by John Sandford
Released: Oct. 6, 2015

"James Bond meets Tom Swift, with the last word reserved not for extraterrestrial encounters but for international piracy, state secrets, and a spot of satisfyingly underhanded political pressure."
Quite a departure for Sandford, who sets aside his Lucas Davenport crime franchise (Gathering Prey, 2015, etc.) and partners with photographer and sci-fi buff Ctein to leave Earth's gravitational field for the rings of Saturn. Read full book review >
PAYBACK by Jonnie Jacobs
Released: Oct. 7, 2015

"The latest from Jacobs (Lying With Strangers, 2013, etc.) is long on suspense but short on surprise as it plunges toward its creepy but entirely predictable conclusion."
A single indiscretion threatens a businesswoman's family and friends. Read full book review >

Released: Oct. 13, 2015

HOST by Robin Cook

Released: Oct. 27, 2015

"Apart from all the big names tossed in to cow Casselli, Woods mostly soft-pedals the usual gratuitous inflation and extraneous subplots, keeping things simple, straightforward, and pleasantly predictable."
A former New York Mafioso who's fled home to Italy kidnaps the latest inamorata of the redoubtable Stone Barrington (Hot Pursuit, 2015, etc.). Big mistake.Read full book review >

SUNFAIL by Steven Savile
Released: Nov. 3, 2015

"A hip style exercise that should satisfy his followers, the prolific Savile's latest apocalyptic thriller is too thinly drawn to make many new fans."

Marie Lu
September 29, 2015

In the second installment of Marie Lu’s Young Elites series, The Rose Society, Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her. But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness? “The direction of this trilogy's conclusion is left refreshingly difficult to predict,” our reviewer writes. View video >
