The Vagrant
by Peter Newman

The Vagrant is a literary work that is bold, dismal, groundbreaking, and genre defying all at once. It's worth a read for its uniqueness alone. Throw in a knight, a baby, and a goat as traveling companions and what are you waiting for?

Penric’s Mission
by Lois McMaster Bujold

Penric's Mission lifts the main character to new heights in terms of his confidence and maturity. This is the Penric I've been waiting for and the one which makes this fourth book in the series a must read.

Sly Mongoose
by Tobias Buckell

Sly Mongoose by Tobias Buckell is a fast-paced science fiction novel that centers around Pepper, an elite soldier whose primary duty is the preservation of the human race (kicking ass is his other priority). A fun read that I highly recommend.

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!

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.
