Every Monday I highlight two books being published this week. I try, whenever possible, to focus on one young adult and one middle grade book. I also briefy share what "new" book I've started reading this week.
Dr. Sigmundus: The Resurrection Fields
By: Brian Keaney
Beginning where Book 2, The Cracked Mirror, left off, this finale to the Promises of Dr. Sigmundus trilogy takes readers into bizarre realms with fanciful creatures, continuing its signature exploration of the price of freedom and self-determination. Focusing on the ongoing struggles of its teenaged protagonists, Dante and Bea, it is a journey at once thrilling and thoughtful, with plenty to offer for pure reading enjoyment and book discussion. This trilogy is satisfying for fantasy fans but also accessible to the less-than-hardcore genre enthusiast.
For fans of the Alex Rider graphic novels Stormbreaker and Point Blank, the wait is finally over. Alex is back! Featuring the same actionpacked, manga-esque style as the previous installments, Skeleton Key brings all the thrills and gadgetry to life in colorful, page-turning form.
