Eternal Fate

Sarah Kenney

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Sarah Kenney combines all the great emotions of young adult drama and family drama in Eternal Fate!  Ashleigh Valentine’s family is a bit of a mess, but together with her two friends she discovers that her family’s secrets run deep.  This was a fun mystery and I really enjoyed the characters.  Check out Eternal Fate if you love the burst of emotion that YA conveys so well!

Tales of Deserts and Demons

Faiz Kermani

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Faiz Kermani offers a great Arabian Nights inspired set of stories in Tales of Deserts and Demons.  This collection of short stories involves monsters and mayhem and sultans with plenty of action and mystery.  It was a lot of fun and I’d definitely recommend it to the younger reader in all of us!

Moon Dreams

Mark Kloss

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Mark Kloss throws down some gorgeous prose in Moon Dreams!  Each poem flows beautifully and follows someone battling one type of adversity or another (the rider was my personal favorite).  Kloss knows how to grab you by the heart so check out Moon Dreams if you’re looking for some moving poetry!

The Guardian Angel

Aneil Komal

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Sixteen year old Aries is in for a wild adventure in Aneil Komal’s The Guardian Angel!  Aries is your typical nerdy high school kid who dreams of becoming a professional wrestler someday.  But when Aries gets sucked into an alternate realm filled with mystical creatures, he must summon his courage to defeat a terrible evil.  The Guardian Angel was a lot of fun and Komal’s angsty writing and fantastic world-building brought it all to life beautifully!  If you love Percy or Chronicles of Narnia, this one’s for you!

Cosmic Love

Jill Kramer

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Jill Kramer builds and destroys a cult in her fascinating psychological thriller Cosmic Love!  The 70s brought about a time of free thinking, something Malkeeya is happy to exploit.  She builds a cult following, but things quickly begin to unravel.  I loved Kramer’s moral argument witnessed from the badguy’s perspective.  This book is tense and deep and well worth your time!

Other Endings

Cody Lakin

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Cody Lakin lets us explore the mysterious ghost-filled town of Margaret’s Mourning in Other Endings!  Lester Halley has had a rough and sad life.  He eventually finds his way to Margaret’s Mourning, a town filled with ghosts that’s also mysteriously connected to Lester’s past.  This novel is beautiful and thought-provoking and Lester’s emotions are very artfully crafted.  Check out Other Endings if you’re in for a great emotional heart punch!

The Deepest Cut

D.G. Lamb

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

D.G. Lamb creates a dark and compelling adventure on an alien world in The Deepest Cut!  When Joshua’s father dies, he sees it as his responsibility to get him and his mom out of the colony’s gang-run slums.  In a roundabout way, this leads him into the world’s alien jungles, forced to survive the elements and deadly creatures as he strives to hang onto his humanity.  I really liked Joshua (maybe because we share a name) and the emotion built into The Deepest Cut was excellent!  If you love YA, blast off into Lamb’s shadowy sci fi universe!

Martha and Mitch

Helen Laycock

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Two social worlds collide in Helen Laycock’s Martha and Mitch!  Martha lives in luxury in a mansion.  Mitch scrapes out a living in a destitute orphanage.  But when Mitch meets Martha after escaping a group of wild boys, they’ll find that they have more in common as they work to solve each other’s problems.  This was a fun adventure full of great characters!  If you love middle grade or the works of Roald Dahl, check out Martha and Mitch!
