Wicked: Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (Wicked Years Book 1)

By Gregory Maguire / Genre: Contemporary Fiction / Rating: 3.6 out of 5 stars (2,560 reviews)

Wicked: Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (Wicked Years Book 1)

This is the book that started it all! The basis for the smash hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Gregory Maguire’s breathtaking New York Times bestseller Wicked views the land of Oz, its inhabitants, its Wizard, and the Emerald City, through a darker and greener (not rosier) lens. Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers us a radical new evaluation of one of the most feared and hated characters in all of literature: the much maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, as Maguire tells us, wasn’t nearly as Wicked as we imagined.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger – and the sinful promises – in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions – and sizzling attraction – keep drawing them closer together. Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?

Telekinetic (a Hyllis family story #1)

By Laurence Dahners / Genre: Hard Science Fiction, Science Fiction / Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (119 reviews)

Telekinetic (a Hyllis family story #1)

“Telekinetic” is the first of a series of stories featuring the Hyllis family, who tend to inherit telekinetic “talents.” The story is set after a plague induced apocalypse. The resulting collapse of civilization has reduced mankind back to iron and horsepower.

Tarc Hyllis’s mother (and his grandfather before her) could “feel” things with their talent. They became healers because of their ability to feel inside their patients. This frequently lets them diagnose the underlying causes of an illness. Having made a diagnosis, unfortunately, there is all too often very little they can do to treat the problem.

Tarc’s father can “push” objects with his mind, but because he can’t feel inside of anything, he doesn’t know where to push in order to help to treat his wife’s patients.

Tarc is just gaining the ability to do both of these things. The combination of these two powers will let him both diagnose a physical problem such as bleeding and also stop that bleeding by applying pressure inside the patient. This is a very exciting development for his mother, who so often has had to watch her patients die for lack of effective treatment.

Then some strangers show up to scout the town where the Hyllises live. They plan and initiate a violent takeover. Can Tarc’s powers, weak as they are, play a role in resisting this invasion?
