The Pursuit of William Abbey

Recommended for fantasy fans with a penchant for darker story lines that investigate themes of colonialism and struggles for power. [See Prepub Alert, 5/5/19.]


North (The Sudden Appearance of Hope) has captured the horror of capitalism without empathy. Her prose style, dreamlike and full of unfinished thoughts and rambling sentences, is distracting enough that it might dissuade people from finishing the novel. But if readers can overcome the unusual style, the dense slow-to-start plot carries through to the end. [See Prepub Alert, 11/21/17.]

The End of the Day

This is a beautiful, if occasionally uncomfortable, read that resists being labeled with any particular genre. [See Prepub Alert, 10/31/16.]
