#2 Urbantasm: The Dying City by Connor Coyne

No Title

No Description

Urbantasm: Book One The Dying City is a magical teen noir serial novel inspired by the author’s experiences growing up in and around Flint, MI. Thirteen-year-old John Bridge’s plans include hooking up with an eighth-grade girl and becoming one of the most popular kids at Radcliffe Junior High, but when he steals a pair of strange blue sunglasses from a homeless person, it drops him into the middle of a gang war overwhelming the once-great Rust Belt town of Akawe. 

John doesn’t understand why the sunglasses are such a big deal, but everything, it seems, is on the table. Perhaps he accidentally offended the Chalks, a white supremacist gang trying to expand across the city. Maybe the feud involves his friend Selby, whose father died under mysterious circumstances. It could even have something to do with O-Sugar, a homegrown drug with the seeming ability to distort space. 

On the night before school began, a group of teenagers took O-Sugar and leapt to their deaths from an abandoned hospital. John struggles to untangle these mysteries while adjusting to his new school, even as his parents confront looming unemployment and as his city fractures and burns.

Up-and-coming Mission County, Pennsylvania, prosecutor Kate Magda has been given the assignment of a lifetime: lead counsel on a string of murders rocking the community. As the privileged daughter of a powerful local judge, Kate views the case as her chance to show her boss, her family, and the public that she is more than just “the judge’s daughter.” 

As Kate delves into the case, she becomes convinced that she shares a personal link with the killer, who seems to know intimate details about a tragic childhood event from Kate’s past—an event she’d long been trying to forget. Paranoia sets in, the night terrors return, and Kate has a strong sense that she’s the killer’s next victim. She no longer feels assigned to the case . . . she is the case, and solving it is her only chance for survival.

#5 Where Triples Go to Die by Phil Hutcheon

No Title

No Description

From Manhattan Book Review: [F]illed with sex and scandal alongside the much more serious topics of suicide, alcoholism, and race, the quick-paced novel never loses momentum. Hutcheon's writing style is down to earth, and he has a way of making the reader feel a connection with each of the characters and wonder what could possibly happen next.... Hutcheon also uses the book as a way to explore African Americans' role in baseball, both past and present. Readers will also be impressed with the historical references and quotes throughout the novel.

#6 Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher

No Title

No Description

The plot is set in war torn England during World War II and features the adventures of a young woman named Judith who is coming of age and has joined the Women's Royal Naval Service. Judith is befriended and accepted into an incredibly kind and prominent family who adopts her as their own while her parents are abroad, and she's swept into a glitzy life filled with glamour and intrigue. 

There is a particularly beautiful, and pivotal, scene in which Judith spends Christmas in a festive and gorgeous mansion nestled in Rosemullion, Cornwall and it will draw the reader right in, wishing they were there. The novel is quite lengthy, a beautiful saga that is best read while curled up by a comforting fire with a soft blanket and a warm cup of tea. A wonderful holiday read for those looking to be swept away to a poignant and enchanting time.
