Tessa's book review: Defending Jacob by William Landay

    Wow. This is an awesome book. Not a happy read, mind you, but superb. I normally do not like legal thrillers (think John Grisham) but Defending Jacob is quite different.  This is almost a necessary read for all citizens, showing the extreme toll taken on the often innocent family of the accused. The horrible and unacceptable results for the family of the accused is so plainly shown it hurts.

Tessa reviews Michigan author's new book: Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

    Jacket cover After a rough start, Jim C. Hines' new book Libriomancer improves immensely. It reminds me somewhat of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden books. There are lots of fun allusions to favorite scifi or fantasy, such as the preference of the main character, Isaac, for brown coats (Firefly).
