Good books (2.5 to 3.5)

Bleed More, Bodymore, by Ian Kilpatrick

3.5 out of 5. Tense atmosphere, interesting ideas about blending in mythology; but the female lead acts kinda stupid, making it hard to identify with her.

Top Tier (4 to 5 stars)

The Liar of Red Valley, by Walter Goodwater

5 out of 5 stars. Fascinating world and one of the finest plot twists I’ve read for quite some time.
