The action starts immediately after the events in Pacific Fire (so stop here if you’re not caught up). Sam’s an out-of-control dragon and Daniel will move Heaven and Earth (almost literally) to get him back … with the willing help of his loyal friends and the only-partially willing help of a certain water mage with designs of his own. So it’s off to the Northern realm to steal the dragon, or more accurately, to rescue Sam. Simple. (To say more would be spoilery.)

Friends, family, golems, lend me your ears/eyes/bones … and enjoy a little masquerade, a stylish caper, and a brief game of thrones (win, or die). Dragon Coast is quite the apt ending to the trilogy, but I spy with my little eye an open door or two, so we might (if we’re lucky and the Earth don’t crack) see more of our favorite osteomancer and his band of merry cohorts in some future incarnation. Can’t wait to feast on that. – Guest Reviewer Patrick Heffernan

Belsky has created yet another entertaining Gil Malloy thriller in Shooting for the Stars, a gripping story of a thirty year-old closed murder case that is resurrected with the discovery of new evidence. Abbie Kincaid, a New York City talk show celebrity, reveals just a bit of what she has uncovered about actress Laura Marlowe’s decades-old murder to Gil Malloy; days later she is found dead. Now it is up to Gil to investigate the secrets and mistakes of the past in order to solve the current crime. Gil Malloy is a stubborn, very funny reporter for the New York Daily News who will stop at nothing to get his story. Belsky, a reporter himself, uniquely captures the politics and sensationalism that social media has brought to today’s newsrooms. Malloy’s personality makes for a comical, shrewd and engaging story; a truly enjoyable read. – Bunny
