Imperial Command (Royce Ree #5)

Super. Really super.

This is an exciting, humorous and highly entertaining tale.

Archangel's Legion (Guild Hunter, #6)

Drivepolitik (Royce Ree #2)

On Thin Ice (Ariel Estates #1)

The Affair of the Porcelain Dog (The Porcelain Dog #1)
Very well done mystery set in Victorian times. Gritty and not romanticized, with good pacing. The stakes are high and there are no easy answers.

Madman's Rue (Royce Ree #4)
If you've read the first three installments, you're not gonna stop now.

L.A. Heat (L.A., #1)
