The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean

If you are looking for a book that scores high for originality, this is your book. Sunyi Dean’s debut novel, The Book Eaters, is a morally complex contemporary gothic fantasy novel that feels like a fresh twist on the vampire story.

Beloved Reading Rainbow host and Star Trek alum Levar Burton makes his novel debut with a prescient speculative gander at a near future United States that is embroiled in a civil war set off by the racially motivated assassination of the POTUS. Burton deftly twists three character arcs into a razor sharp examination of American life in these dark modern times. Part The Road, part Lucifer's Hammer. —Ed

The Art of Prophecy by Wesley Chu

Jian, child of Prophecy, is destined to save the realm from the evil Khan. I loved this book. I appreciated that it’s concerned with the disillusionment of blind faith. It asks one fundamental question: what instead happens if the prophecy is wrong? Imagine believing you are effectively life’s main character, humbled, then forced to decide what kind of person you have to be. —Morgan
