Blog Hop #6
Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?
I would have to say my new favorite author would be Stacia Kane, author of the Downside Ghosts series. Last week I started her first two books, with the third installment releasing this past Tuesday, and I cannot stop thinking about Chess and Terrible. The series absolutely vibrates with energy and presents two protagonists who have haunted my thoughts even though I've finished reading. The series is gritty, dark, sometimes emotionally overwhelming, but absolutely worth it.
In the young adult realm, I was thoroughly impressed with Jennifer Lynn Barnes and her werewolf novel Raised by Wolves. The paranormal world is dominated by werewolves and vampires at the moment, but she manages to bring a fresh perspective and a unique mythology to the table and I can't wait for the second book next year!
A big thanks to Crazy for Books for hosting the blog hop!
