The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson
The Homelander Series by Andrew Klavan
The River of Times Series by Lisa Tawn Bergren
These books are written more for gals than guys, and I’m not generally a huge romance fan, but there was plenty of action, intrigue, and plot twists in these books to keep my interest piqued. Politics in fourteenth century Italy could be dangerous – read wars, feuds, lots of sword fighting, assassins, etc. Pretty exciting, huh?
Some more all time favorites. These books have a sort of classic feel to them, a timeless quality, a beauty and a depth that reaches beyond the story into the heart of the reader.
Fin’s Revolution tells the story of orphan Fin Button during the tumultuous times of the American War for Independence. Fin’s restless spirit and dark secrets lead her on a dangerous journey through a series of tragic events from the orphanage in Georgia, to a privateer ship, to the threat of a noose about her neck. Definitely a must read.
Failstate by John W. Otte
Superheroes… A reality TV show… A government vigilante licence… A murder… Sounds like a recipe for a great story.
Another great one for guys or girls, Failstate offers a fun blend of superheroes, mystery, action, and awesome characters. I finished this book in one sitting and look forward to the promised release of more Failstate books in the near future!
