The best books you never read

I am both a reader and a writer. I find that the best writers are in fact avid readers. I love books of all kinds but I really adore reading new authors who are just getting their feet wet. Some of the very best writers are now found in the indie set. These reviews will be of books I have devoured in my never ending quest for good fiction. Some will be up and comers who have hit the top of the chart, but most will be struggling new writers who deserve a second look.

Jinx High by Mercedes Lackey

Jinx High - Mercedes Lackey

This is the third book of one of Ms Lackey's earlier series. An urban fantasy with vampires, witches who kick butt and teenagers from a rich suburb. This book came out back in 1991 and is a fun read all around.


Sadly this series was put on the shelf after a fanatical fan threatened the author.


Dealing with themes like teen sex and drugs, it could be written now and work just as well.


One of my favorite parts was the introduction of a younger version of a character who ended up with two books of his own. Like she has done so many times, Ms Lackey she gives us back story and more while giving us a rollicking fun read.


If you are prepared for a book that is a little dated with the technology used you will enjoy this read
