Deeper Than Need
by Shiloh Walker

           

This is a novel full of tension: There is lots of sexual tension, which makes the romance more real, and there is the tension of a slowly revealed evil, which lurks beneath, bubbling under the entire plotline. The characters lack some of the crystallized focus that is so lovely in many of Walker’s works, but this is book one in a series, so we can expect more details later.

Cover Breakdown: The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

BY DJ DeSmyter, AUGUST 27, 2014 | PERMALINK

The moment I saw the cover for The Miniaturist, I knew it would be perfect for our Cover Breakdown series, and as soon as you see it, you'll know why. I'm not usually big on Historical Fiction, but Jessie Burton's novel sounds like a mesmerizing read that may satisfy my need for a book as enchanting as Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus. Let's get started!

On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office–leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella's life changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist–an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways ...

Outlander Recap: Episode 1.3 — "The Way Out"

BY Regina Small, AUGUST 25, 2014 | PERMALINK

Previously: Claire didn't make the best first impression on Colum MacKenzie, laird of Castle Leoch, and now she's being kept quasi-prisoner as the castle healer. Jamie kept his shirt on.

We open on a flashback: World War II is still raging and Frank is escorting Claire to the train station. She's headed to the front lines, which Frank notes is a bit of bitter irony: He'll sit behind a desk in London, sending men on covert operations, while his wife is in the thick of battle. In a way, it's a refreshing, progressive dynamic, but it also makes me wonder if a man who's been In The Mess would "get" Claire more. Not that I'm thinking of anyone specific. Ahem.

Before Claire boards, Frank reminds her that he can have her orders changed. Claire refuses. In what will emerge as the episode's theme, Claire values her personal security less than the opportunity to help others. It's stubborn, reckless, a little short-sighted — and totally admirable. Frank agrees.

As Claire leans through the train window to kiss her husband goodbye, she promises that she will return to him. I dab my eyes because it's suddenly gotten very dusty in my bedroom.
