October is ghost story time - The Revenant

The Revenant is a mystery wrapped in a ghost story with local Oklahoma history, too!  The author, Gensler is a romantic as well and it comes through strong in her writing! Revenant, french origin - one that returns after death or a long absence. October is a great time to read "The Revenant!"

Beautiful Darkness

 

In a small southern town with a secret world hidden in plain sight, sixteen-year-old Lena, who possesses supernatural powers and faces a life-altering decision, draws away from her true love, Ethan, a mortal with frightening visions.

  Beautiful Darkness is the second book in the Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  As the direct sequel to Beautiful Creatures the narrative picks up shortly after the conclusion of that book, with flashbacks to Macon Ravenwood’s funeral.

Ashfall, another Sequoyah nominee!

Mullin's Ashfall is a page turner. If you have ever been to Yellowstone, you will want to read this book.  If you have ever taken Karate lessons, you will want to read this book! Alex begins a journey to find his family, he meets up with a survivor, Darla and their comradery sets the pace for this story.  Volcano ash sets the tone of the story, much like C. McCarthy's The road, a tale of survival and social regression.
