Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Synopsis:

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets.

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune--and remarkable power--to whoever can unlock them.

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that Halliday's riddles are based in the pop culture he loved--that of the late twentieth century. And for years, millions have found in this quest another means of escape, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday's icons. Like many of his contemporaries, Wade is as comfortable debating the finer points of John Hughes's oeuvre, playing Pac-Man, or reciting Devo lyrics as he is scrounging power to run his OASIS rig.

And then Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle.

Suddenly the whole world is watching, and thousands of competitors join the hunt--among them certain powerful players who are willing to commit very real murder to beat Wade to this prize. Now the only way for Wade to survive and preserve everything he knows is to win. But to do so, he may have to leave behind his oh-so-perfect virtual existence and face up to life--and love--in the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

A world at stake.
A quest for the ultimate prize.
Are you ready?

Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1) by Richelle Mead
Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Synopsis:
Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny...

The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma
The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma

Synopsis:
Set in Victorian London with characters real and imagined, The Map of Time boasts a triple play of intertwined plots in which a skeptical H.G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including Dracula and The Time Machine, from being wiped from existence.

What happens if we change history? The author explores this question in the novel, weaving an historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting—a story full of love and adventure that transports readers to a haunting setting in Victorian London for their own taste of time travel.

Firelight (Darkest London, #1) by Kristen Callihan
Firelight by Kristen Callihan

Synopsis:

Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.

They will burn for eternity . . .

Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1) by Orson Scott Card
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

Synopsis:
In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.
Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones

Synopsis:

Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.

In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans. Night Myst

Enchanted, Inc. (Enchanted, Inc. #1) by Shanna Swendson
Enchanted, Inc. by Shanna Swendson

Synopsis:

DON’T MESS WITH HEXES

Katie Chandler had always heard that New York is a weird and wonderful place, but this small-town Texas gal had no idea how weird until she moved there. Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she’s a little too normal to make a splash in the big city. Working for an ogre of a boss doesn’t help.

Then, seemingly out of the blue, Katie gets a job offer from Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., a company that tricks of the trade to the magic community. For MSI, Katie’s ordinariness is an asset. Lacking any bit of magic, she can easily spot a fake spell, catch hidden clauses in competitor’s contracts, and detect magically disguised intruders. Suddenly, average Katie is very special indeed.

She quickly learns that office politics are even more complicated when your new boss is a real ogre, and you have a crush on the sexy, shy, ultra powerful head of the R&D department, who is so busy fighting an evil competitor threatening to sell black magic on the street that he seems barely to notice Katie. Now it’s up to Katie to pull off the impossible: save the world and–hopefully–live happily ever after.

Archangel (Samaria, #1) by Sharon Shinn
Archangel by Sharon Shinn

Synopsis:
And so it came to pass...

Through science, faith and force of will, the Harmonics carved out for themselves a society that they conceived of as perfect. Diverse peoples held together by respect for each other and the prospect of swift punishment if they disobeyed their laws. Fertile land that embraced a variety of climates and seasons. Angels to guard the mortals and mystics to guard the forbidden knowledge. Jehovah to watch over them all...

But an age of corruption has come to the land, threatening their peace and placing the Samarians in grave danger. Their only hope lies in the crowning of a new Archangel. The oracles have chosen for this honor the angel named Gabriel, and further decreed that he must first wed a mortal woman named Rachel.

It is his destiny and hers. And Gabriel is certain that she will greet the news of her betrothal with enthusiasm, and a devotion to duty equal to his own.

Rachel, however, has other ideas...

God Save the Queen by Kate Locke

Synopsis:
Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist.

The undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark.

And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns.

Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But when her sister goes missing, Xandra will set out on a path that undermines everything she believed in and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire. And she is the key-the prize in a very dangerous struggle.

Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn

Synopsis:
Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they imagined. Now Myst, the Vampiric Fae Queen of the Indigo Court, has enough power to begin a long prophesied supernatural war. And Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, may be the only one who can stop her-and save her beloved Fae prince from the Queen's enslavement.

Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, has returned home to New Forest, Washington, after learning that her family is in danger. The Indigo Court holds the city in fear. People are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. And when she is swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover.

But Greive has been enslaved in Myst's court, and now, caught betwen two evils, the lovers must survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae queen, even as Cicely untangles the hidden secrets to her own heritage.

message 121: by Carter

Carter Hm, I see there are plenty of fan comments down there. Lot's of them are some pretty good messages, and lot's of people have been reading your books since you started writing, which is an impressive feat.

Anyways, just thought I'd drop by to go ahead and let you know I'm psyched to read the fourth Charley Davidson book. I actually only started the series two days ago, and I'll be honest. I finished all three . .. couldn't put them down. But that's okay, because apparently I have a lot of free time, or something like that. But yeah, gotta give you props, that's for sure. This was the first adult series I've ever read, and it's one of the best series I've ever read. So I'm hoping that the next book comes out quicker than I have a feeling it will seem. (A month is a long time to wait . . . )

Oh yeah, and one more thing. Givin' a shout out to the Land of Enchantment! I really miss the weather there . . . Ohio's weather sucks . . .

*is pathetic*

I'm freakin out myself a bit, I think I'm passing out again :D


message 117: by Lori

Lori I'm suffering from Charley Davidson withdrawal (^_^;)
I think I'll have to do a re-read of the series to help me through. BTW, love, love, love the series. I bought my sister and my sister-in-law "First Grave On the Right" and made them promise to read it. They don't have the same taste in books as I do, but I don't hold it against them.

Thank you, Samantha! The shoes are real, but they are VERY expensive and are sold out everywhere. (I tried, lol.) They are designer Alexander McQueens. I would kill to have a pair!

CrimsonTyd I was wondering (and you have probably answered this a trillion times) if the sandals depicted on the cover of the first book are available retail...I would LOVE to get a pair of those! Aside from that I have to say I adore your books and that my sister is starting book 1 on audio this week- she will be thanking me for that little nudge. :-) Thanks for the add and have a good one!

Ruvinika Hey Darynda,

Okay, so I read all 4 released books of your Charley Davidson series and I am in LOVE. 8->

So umm... why don't you go ahead and release the next book of the series a bit sooner cuz..:-s OMG 2013 is like light-years away and my parents used to call me an impatient brat when I was little and now they are complaining that I'll never grow up. But I assure you ma'am it's not my fault that I can't wait for the next book, it's entirely yours and Charlie's only.

The main fact that keeps me enthralled in your books is that they are awfully funny. No soul can pour laughter into books like that without being humorous-to-no-end themselves. (I think I'm going to move in next to you in your neighbourhood, you know being the friendly-stalking-neighbour-chick and all....cuz I can use as much as hilarious chitchat right about now.)



You know how to maintain the standard of the book - always better than the previous - without disappointing the readers.
Sadly enough it is a fact where most writers go wrong. They start with a spark and a story full of potential only to let it die a shameful death in the sequel.
But 'Charley Davidson' is a story started with a flame and going on full swing in becoming an inferno throughout the whole series. I have nothing but elevated expectations for the next book.

The fact that your books are extremely hard to predict is official now. They keep me constantly observant and calculating odds to foresee what comes next only to jump into skewed conclusions ending up flabbergasted. (Oh man.. I so wanted to use that word in a review or a letter or in any written format.. :D). Because I believe I am really good at predicting ends (Don’t take me lightly cuz I truly am and nope I am not bragging… :D …okay maybe a little bit…) and you leave me out of breath in each and every ending of your stories.
Even if endings of some books of certain writers are hard to foretell at first, when you get attuned to their way of thinking after couple of books or so, you can easily guess what comes next. But the way your mind works my dear lady is still a mystery to me...which is quite refreshing actually; cuz too much perception on how a story is going to end only after reading halfway through a book, leaves me utterly bored and when they become too conventional I stop reading further all together.

So anyway...by leaving you this short message (ahem!), I wanted to let you know that I am so impressed in your writing skills. So I decided to become your eternal fan which is short for I-will-read-whatever-you-write. So hurry up and write some more.

Sincere stalking eternal fan,
Suki

Oh thank you soooo much, Suki!!!!!! I love writing Charley and am thrilled that you like reading about her. LOL.

HUGS! ~D~


Ruvinika Hey Ms.Darynda,

Thanks for accepting my friend request. Today I started reading the first book of your 'Charley Davidson' series and already in love with the story!!!
It is different than the other paranormal romance/ urban fantasy books I've read, in a refreshing way.

Also the book is hilarious I sometimes read the same phrase few times just so I can laugh again and again.
There are fantastic writers out there but not everyone can make the readers laugh like you do.
You are a brilliant writer so I'm planning to read every series you write. (I'm totally looking forward for the 'Darklight' series.)

Please write more and more.
Sincere brand new fan,
Suki
