Outpost
by W. Michael Gear

Outpost earns a solid four rockets from me. I liked the characters, the story, the planet, and the direction the author is going with all of it. It’s a good science fiction series you should add to your reading list.

Lord of the Fire Lands
by Dave Duncan

Lord of the Fire Lands by Dave Duncan continues the story begun in The Gilded Chain and ends with a twist that so surprised me I didn't wait long to pick up the next in the series. Duncan continues to impress!

The Gilded Chain

A fun adventure full of colorful characters, intrigue, magic, and, of course, the King's Blades.

Legacy
by Lois McMaster Bujold

This second novel in Bujold's Sharing Knife series brings to a close events set in motion in Beguilement. A slow and steady pace (much like a Robin Hobb novel) ensures a long, enjoyable read as Bujold always impresses.

The Collapsing Empire
by John Scalzi

The Collapsing Empire begins a galaxy spanning story full of political backstabbing and shaky alliances. Scalzi's always colorful cast of characters and punchy writing kept me engaged throughout the reading experience. Needless to say, this one doesn't disappoint.

The Deep and Snowy Wood

The Deep and Snowy Wood by Elwyn Tate is a beautifully illustrated picture book made especially it seems for a setting where the fire is blazing and the kids are gathered round.

The Alchemist's Pursuit
by Dave Duncan

The third installment in Dave Duncan's Venetian fantasy/mystery series finds Nostradamus and his apprentice, Alfeo, attempting to solve a string of murders that may result in the death of the woman Alfeo loves if they fail. Duncan delivers another gripping tale!

Krampus the Yule Lord
by Brom

Krampus is as much a story about the traditions of Christmas and Yule as it is a tale of discovery, as the titular character struggles to find his place in a world that has moved on without him.

Boneshaker
by Cherie Priest

Boneshaker is full of goodness: zombies, airships, polarized goggles, gas masks, steampunk weapons, a particularly mad and devious scientist/inventor, and a strong female lead who doesn't know when to quit. Great read!
