I'm a little uncomfortable being at odds with so many of the other opinions about this book and wonder, frankly, if I haven't missed something. As a preliminary matter, let me say that I truly enjoyed BIRD BOX. Josh Malerman came up with one of the o ...more

The Mona Lisa Sacrifice by Peter Roman
Rate this book
Clear rating
Peter Roman must have pissed someone off. Seriously.

First of all, the title of his book is the cringe-worthy, "The Mona Lisa Sacrifice: Book One of the Book of Cross." Is it a cheap rip off of THE DAVINCI CODE? Or the first installment of a "chronicl

With NAPIER'S BONES, Derryl Murphy has managed a truly impressive feat. In one stroke he has created a work of literature which is both tremendously exhilarating in its originality and bitterly disappointing in the execution.

I've been diligently reading the Dexter books all along, hoping that Jeff Lindsay would recapture that delightful macabre quirkiness of DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER. Sadly, with each successive novel, I felt more like I was slogging up hill, first through ...more

"Cain's Blood" is a fascinating first novel about genetic manipulation by an intriguing new author, Geoffrey Girard. In the current literary environment of "copy cat" novels, Girard manages to do something truly remarkable by creating an entirely inn ...more

I'll preface by saying that Kate Jonez is a very promising new writer. She's got a definite facility for language and a wonderful aptitude for creating mood, both the atmospheric mood of her story as well as instilling a particular mood resulting fro ...more
