The Bedlam Stacks by Natasha Pulley is an imaginative leap back to colonial British and Peruvian times. She brings together believable historical fiction, with just a small element of magic, to once again create a world with just a little extra wonder.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson is a dark read, parading under the guise of popular culture. Which, perhaps, is appropriate, given its underlying themes.
