Sixteen-year-old Lia Johansen arrives on New Sol Space Station a refuge and war orphan, but she is not exactly what she seems. She remembers little of her past, nor if she is entirely human. All she knows is her mission. Lia Johansen is bomb, engineered to go Nova in 36 hours, and the clock is ticking. Then it is not. Malfunction. Now she needs some answers, and a reason to go on … before she goes off. Even a dud can be dangerous if it’s rattled too much.
Exploring what it means to be human through the unlikely eyes of a piece of unexploded ordnance, Nova is the truly remarkable first volume in a series of five interconnected novels of interstellar war that will appeal to adults young and old … a novel quite worthy of Heinlein and PKD … and your time. Trust me, don’t miss this one. Glorious.

Check out what we (MG staff and friends) have recently read and enjoyed.
Though he may have done a few good things with his presidency, most people remember Richard Nixon as a crook, not a hero. In Crooked, Grossman reimagines Nixon as an unlikeable, but ultimately compelling, antihero trying to save the U.S. (and the world) from a secret war of unknowable horrors. Though clearly researched, the novel glosses over much of the real world Nixon’s actions, making it much more accessible to anyone interested in supernatural spy thrillers, not just Nixonian scholars. The action is sometimes slow, but the nature of the mysteries and the authentic cast will keep readers going to the end. – David
