Trumpery Resistance by J. Steven Young

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “Through animated allegory, Trumpery Resistance tackles the overwhelming feeling of helplessness that many have experienced after viewing the current administration’s actions these past few years.”

 

Travelers by V. S. Holmes

Rating: ★★★★★

RCR Says: “Holmes has certainly struck gold with [character] Dr. Nel Bently. With answers—and, of course, more questions—served up later in the novel, the series can now take off in whichever direction it chooses.”

 

Out of Time by Abigail Dobbs

Rating: ★★★★★

RCR Says:Dobbs works her magic to create well-rounded characters, places, and a plot that is so propulsive it’s difficult to put the novel down.”

Keep You Cold: Chilling Tales by A. J. Franks

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “It might seem counterintuitive that a collection of stories, most of which contain murder, suicide, or other forms of sinister fate, could be considered fun, but Franks’ writing carries a frisson of voyeuristic pleasure that is undeniably entertaining—and somehow uplifting—for the reader.”
