The art isn’t at its best with issues at times with perspective, but it’s still Butcher’s sharp, in-your-face prose. Set during the war with the Red Court vampires, it seems downright nostalgic if you’re caught up with the novels. The bonus is it’s another never-before published or adapted story. A satisfying read to tide you over till the next book. Graphics Novels, Graphic Novels, Jim Butcher, Comics Book, Butcher Dresden, Wars Cry, Dresden Files, File Graphics, Dynamite Entertainment
Mingle hits all the right beats fans of Austen love and expect. Love and family is pitted against the biggest struggle we often have: with ourselves. I admit I’ve always had a soft spot for Mary, the epitome of the neglected middle child, and was so glad to see a book that shines a light on her. Mingle doesn’t change how Mary is in Pride and Prejudice. She simply lets her grow up into a sharply witty woman worthy of her own love story.
In true high fantasy fashion, Martin’s third tome in his Song of Ice and Fire series will take some time to read, but it’s worth it. Storm of Swords is often hailed as the best of the books to date with lots of major plot twists and set up for events to come. Start priming for season 3 of the HBO adaptation, which will cover about half the book, and get ahead for season 4 which will adapt the second part.
Holmes has never been more alive than in the recent resurgence of his screen presence.

Of the 13 stories, notables include The Empty House, The Dancing Men, and The Second Stain.
Moriarty has fast become a reader favorite, and with good reason. In her latest, her characters once again jump off the page as she explores the idea of the cost of both secrets and truth. The epilogue feels a bit heavy-handed, but the story itself will keep you up long past bedtime.

London (the writing team of Lorraine Heath and her son) kicks off an engrossing story of love against a post-war backdrop of human/vampire prejudices, politics and family dysfunction. The first-person, present-tense narrative is a little jarring at first, but you’ll be flying through the pages before you know it. A less-bleak Hunger Games with a Black Dagger Brotherhood twist.
The stakes have never been higher in the Hollows, and it’s no coincidence since the author has announced this is the third to last book in the series. With the existence of the Ever After on the line, you know who had to be involved: the Worst Boyfriend Ever, Nick. Another rousing tale filled with heartache, humor and serious sass-mouthing witch at work. New to the neighborhood? The first book is Dead Witch Walking. While Black Magic Sanction sets up the current unfolding events.
