The Dying of the Light (Skulduggery Pleasant, Book 9) by Derek Landy (28-Aug-2014) Hardcover - Derek Landy

Landy is good at taking the plot to completely unexpected places.

The Complete Stories (Penguin Modern Classics) - Truman Capote

These stories show a great capacity for capturing time, place and character. Highly evocative. On the whole I think I prefered the Depression era Alabama childhood stories to the more recently set ones, but the one set in a cemetary was great. This volume has made me take a wider interest in Capote's work.

Diamonds and Doom, Marcus Sedgwick

Diamonds and Doom. Marcus Sedgwick - Marcus Sedgwick

The final book in the Raven Mysteries reaches almost as high as the first book and higher than any of the middle ones, mainly due to the introduction of Rob the Rival Raven and a level of insanity that renders the events of previous books almost normal seeming...
