Books Robert Recommends
Rule Britannia has the beginnings of a classic Steampunk adventure. It captures the essence of the genre wonderfully and presents us with rich characters I'm already eager to follow.
A female airship Captain and her crew work to prevent a despotic Queen Victoria expanding her empire.
A powerful, chilling opening. In Seicha we find a strong, resourceful, and intelligent protagonist — a girl trying to survive in a harsh, engaging world. I'm looking forward to exploring that world in full when the book comes out.
In a war-torn tribal city inhabited by mystical spirits, a young woman named Seicha is ritually sacrificed to a demon and must navigate the dangers of the Underworld to protect the family she left behind from beyond the grave.
Who doesn't love a great fae story? Buckle up for a dark urban fantasy.
In a world where humans and faeries co-exist, the Fae Patriarch of Boston’s criminal underworld must choose between a role he never wanted, one that will change the Seelie Court forever, and the destruction of everything he loves.
