    The Magpie Lord – K J Charles
    THink/Stuff – Jo Myles
    Pressure Head/Relief Valve – J L Merrow

    I know that’s five books but I can’t choose a favourite from the last two series. And I suspect the only reason the other Magpie book isn’t there is because I haven’t read it yet.

  25. Kaje Harper

    Not possible to pick the best three so I’ll go for three that stood out as both good and uncommon:

    Shaking the Sugar Tree by Nick Wilgus
    Bone Rider by J. Fally
    Forget Me Not by Jordan Castillo Price
    (Honorable Mention = Mark Cooper versus America by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock)

    There were other books I adored (including all of K.J. Charles) but those stories made me take notice because they felt fresh as I read them – they didn’t remind me of any other books I’d read.
