Here are Virginie's Nominations for October's Book Club:

The Many-Coloured Land (Saga of Pliocene Exile, #1) by Julian May The Summer Dragon (The Evertide, #1) by Todd Lockwood City of Lies (Poison Wars #1) by Sam Hawke Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill The Golden Key by Melanie Rawn

The Many-Coloured Land by Julian May
This is the Science Fantasy novel that gave Mark Lawrence his taste for mixing fantasy and science-fiction! The concept intrigued me (time-travel, mammoths and psychic aliens?) and it won the Locus Award in 1982.

The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood
Because dragons.

City of Lies by Sam Hawke
My new release choice of the batch! Praised by one of my favorite author, Robin Hobb, this debut novel blends fantasy and murder mystery. The focus on poison and the art of proofing can make for a refreshing read for those tired of assassins.

Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill
Told through the perspective of a robot, the novel (according to the reviews) explores what it means to be human.

The Golden Key by Melanie Rawn, Jennifer Roberson & Kate Elliott
This door-stopper of a book is written by three authors. I was drawn to the magic system (via painting) and the court intrigues & political schemings that seem to be heavily featured in this book.

Vote here: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1...

May the best book win!!

Thanks for your awesome nominations, Virginie. :D

Miche | 2939 comments Great choices, Virginie!

I am torn between The Summer Dragon and The Golden Key.

For now I will go with The Golden Key, but my vote might change later on. ;)

I've read The Summer Dragon. It's good but I'd put it at a middle school level.

I haven't read the others so I have to do a bit of research.

Hailee | 2423 comments Great choices. I'm intending to read Sea of Rust in August but I've also had my eye on City of Lies so I think I'll vote for that!!

I am trying to stick to standalone books until the end of the year to clear my series a bit more. When I get under 5 I will be able to splurge again. ;)

oh, yeesh. Middle school?? That was one of my picks, but considering how much trouble I had with Starless being for a younger audience, you've frightened me.

Virginie | 5795 comments I didn't think this through when I signed up for the nominations... I don't know where to place my vote! I want to read 'em all!

I CAN'T CHOOSE HAAAAA 😂

Starless was 2.5*'s for me. This was 3*'s. It's a better story. Plus baby dragons. :P
