Top Tier (4 to 5 stars)

Against The Wind [Broken Leyweaver Cycle #1], by Darren Askins

4 out of 5 stars. A dystopian blend between high and dark fantasy that needs a while to get its hooks into the reader.

Good books (2.5 to 3.5)

One must tell the Bees, by J. Lawrence Matthews

3.5 out of 5 stars. A great Holmes novel with a really bad pacing problem. And way too much details.
