Warcross

If you are ready for stories for the next generation, then Warcross is your novel. Warcross brings readers to a near-future world where virtual reality (VR) is literally everywhere.

Scythe

I wasn’t sure what to think about a book with an image of a reaper in red on the front cover. Yes, the artwork was glorious, but I tend to shy away from anything too horrific, especially anything graphic, and I didn’t know what to expect (Shusterman always leaves me guessing–an exceptional quality in any author!).

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles)

I have to say, I love a good retelling. Of course, the Cinderella concept is always popular, and this one, complete with cyborg, is definitely an intriguing and gripping read. Besides, I love futuristic, speculative fiction–especially if it throws in a little romance.
