3 Books for Late Summer Reading

by Susan Roberts

Summer is almost over and it's time for the kids to go back to school.  The weather is still hot but we know that fall is getting close. Here are three books publishing in late August that I enjoyed.  One is psychological suspense, one is dystopian and one is historical fiction so there should be a book for everyone to enjoy!

The Enchanted by @KBHoyle_author ~ a Review #TheGatewayChronicles

by Donna Huber

When I started re-reading this series, for the 3rd time, I couldn't wait to get to The Enchanted as it has always been my favorite book in the series. I didn't want to race through it, but I just can't put any of the books in this series down once I start. If I had this book in hand when I finished The White Thread I would've been a chain reader and picked it up as soon as I read the last word of The White Thread.

After Nightfall by A.J. Banner ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

This is a fantastically well-written suspense novel that had me guessing until the last chapter. There were clues and false clues all through the books and I was sure knew who the 'bad guy' was several times and then found out a few pages later that I was totally wrong.

Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett ~ a Review

by MK French

In the city of Tevanne, the four Guild Houses own approximately 80% of the city property and function almost like city-states. The remaining 20% are the Commons, where those that don't belong to a Guild House live. There are no laws to protect the people, and it is in this place where Sancia Grado lives as a thief with extraordinary abilities. She stole an item from the docks, and it turns out to be more than an ordinary magical technological item. This one isn't scrived with the usual magical languages and is able to overwrite the magic the Guild Houses use. That would allow it to control all of reality if Sancia hands it over. When she decides not to fulfill the job, she has to collect allies and figure out a way to survive in Tevanne.

The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal ~ an @Audible_com Review

by Donna Huber

I was a bit apprehensive when I chose The Calculating Stars as it is an alternate history novel set in the 1950s, but, wow, it was so much better than I had expected.
