i am still alive.jpg

I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall
Jess is a survivor. After an accident leaves her using a cane to get around after months of physical therapy, she is sent to live with a father who she hasn't seen in years and who is as physically distant as he is emotionally. It takes more than hiding out in the Canadian wilderness to escape his mysterious and dangerous past, a past that finds them and makes things take a turn for the worse, leaving scrambling to survive once again.
A novel that has spirit, I Am Still Alive shows the struggle of one girl and her determination to survive. With the very real threats of nature closing in around her, Jess finds her will to live in the possibility of revenge against the people who stranded her in the wilderness.

Book Review

there there.jpg

There There by Tommy Orange
There, There features a cast of characters set on a collision course. Set in Oakland with events that lead to a final and devastating conclusion at the Big Oakland Powwow. The book spans generations of people of varying Native American statuses, all of them affected by the near genocide and displacement of their people. Beautifully written from varying perspectives and characters that demand your attention. This was a story that needed to be told and, more importantly, one that needs to be read.

conartist.jpg

Con Artist by Tom Fowler
This clever mystery novel is fun with layers of self-reflective comedy cleverly woven in with references that are delightful and show just how reality bending Comic Con as an event is. The hustle and bustle of San Diego Comic Con is amplified by comic artist Mike Mason's 'murder investigation' to clear his name after a rival is found dead. The problems don't stop there as Mike is forced to face his creative block, the cause of it, and the plight of creators within the comic industry.

Art Walk June 2018 - Johna Strader and M.A. Cortez

Join us June 7th for the Art Walk where we will have two authors: Johna Strader signing her book, When Paths Are Crossed and M.A. Cortez with The Sister Sleuths and the Shadow Man.

Johna Strader, When Paths Are Crossed
 

 Shayna Harper is no stranger to the problems men can cause, so when she moves into a new apartment and Trey Monroe fails to respond in a timely manner to her maintenance concerns, it isn’t anything unusual. What is unusual is her reaction: not only forgiving him but letting her guard down enough to start dating him.  Trey isn’t looking for another girlfriend, but when he meets the pretty girl who called about problems in her apartment, he uses free hockey tickets from his best friend to score a date with her, not expecting it to turn into anything serious. When it does, even he doesn’t realize the long-term impact.  A relationship neither of them is looking for balloons around them, but the “hook-up high” wears off quickly, and Shayna finds that Trey’s problems with his kids and his ex-wife become her own. She hadn’t even wanted children; now, the instant family that came with Trey is threatening to overwhelm her, and she’s ready to throw in the towel and break it off with him.  A routine doctor’s appointment reveals she’s pregnant, however, and the path Shayna thinks she’s on suddenly seems quite different, with her normally sharp sense of direction dulled by the awesome responsibility and decisions facing her.  When Paths Are Crossed will remind you that we all have our individual journeys with their respective challenges, but sometimes, the roadblocks we encounter are ones we put there ourselves.

M.A. Cortez, The Sister Sleuths and the Shadow Man

 The thing about a secret is, it always comes back to haunt you…  Sandy and Samantha may be twins, but sharing the same birthday is where their similarities end. It seems like the girls will never find common ground, until they stumble upon another set of siblings hiding secrets, lies, and shadows of the past.

Book Review

outoftheblue.jpg

Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron

     Jaya's mother is dead, her best friend and lover have disappeared, and winged Beings are falling from the sky. For Jaya, the last handful of months have been a series of events she has no control over. To top it off, her father in a Wingding, obsessed with the winged Beings that fall to their deaths and he has decided to uproot his two daughters to get to the next location where he thinks another fall will happen. Jaya is opposed to this idea and has little faith in his calculations until she witnesses the fall of a Being and discovers she survived. Now Jaya must decide what to do in the best interest of the Being, including involving a pair of siblings, Allie and Calum, who can help. As these three are thrown together by the same goals, Jaya and Allie become close even while the shadows of Jaya's past take shape.
     Beautiful and flowing, the writing of this book creates full and kinetic scenes and characters that are hurt and courageous enough to change that.

Casper Art Walk Kickoff with Fred Jacquot

Casper_Art_Walk_Logo_2018_SEASON.png

We will have author Fred Jacquot with his book Wild Men on the North Fork: A Yellowstone Summer from 5-8 pm.
Come down, meet the author, get a book, and support local business!

Quote from Wild Men on the North Fork A Yellowstone Summer:
The Absaroka Mountains are, by land area, the largest range in Wyoming. Few Wyoming citizens could tell you this. As a range it lacks the spectacular peaks of the more famous Tetons. For vacationers, it is not nearly as popular as the Big Horns. One can count its lakes on two hands. This is an embarrassment when compared to the Wind River Range to its south. In the 'Winds' there is a lake over every hill, some ten thousand in all. But the Absarokas have their own special, rugged beauty and are probably host to as many wild animals as all the other Wyoming ranges combined. And they are rugged! Orrin and Lorraine Bonney, in their definitive book on the mountains of Wyoming, call the Absaroka Mountains the most rugged topographical area in the United States.

Book Review

unburycarol.jpg

Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman
Unbury Carol is a well paced novel that plays out like a film with characters that naturally move the story along. The characters are satisfied with who they are as people with exceptions made to the villainous and the deranged who attempt to destroy others to change themselves and their statuses. The story is fairly straightforward while masterfully hiding the plot changing information that is revealed at key points like a magic trick. This book is about legends, expectations, and sleight of hand all wrapped up in a western package.

daughtersofthestorm.jpg

Daughters of the Storm by Kim Wilkins
Sisters Bluebell, Willow, Ivy, Ash, and Rose all have the same goal of saving their father, the King of Thyrsland, from a mysterious illness that has befallen him. Each sister has her own motives and each are players in a greater political game. Reminiscent of a Nordic sagas, this book had plenty of lore, magic, familial intricacies, beautiful landscapes, and strong characters. These characters are perfect examples of 'good characters' that are capable of making bad choices, realistically rendering them.

Call or come in to Wind City Books to pick up a copy his books and join in on our book club where we are reading The Eyre Affair for February. Join in on our book club here.

Great Britain circa 1985: time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. Baconians are trying to convince the world that Francis Bacon really wrote Shakespeare, there are riots between the Surrealists and Impressionists, and thousands of men are named John Milton, an homage to the real Milton and a very confusing situation for the police. Amidst all this, Acheron Hades, Third Most Wanted Man In the World, steals the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and kills a minor character, who then disappears from every volume of the novel ever printed! But that's just a prelude . . .

Sam knows how lucky she is to be part of the elite Edwards Academy. As she dreams of getting into Harvard one day, she's willing to do anything to fit in and excel at the private high school. Even if that means enduring hazing, signing up for a sport she hates, and attending the school dance with an upperclassman she barely knows.

But when she learns the high cost of entry, will Sam be willing to bury the worst night of her life in order to "keep the community sacred"? As the line between truth and justice blurs, Sam must find out for herself what honor really means.

The Which Way Tree
Crook recounts the trials of Benjamin and Samantha "Sam" Shreve told via the letters and testament of Benjamin. Through his voice the reader is carried off on a fearsome adventure involving 14 yr old Benjamin, 12 yr old Sam, an aging Mexican who might or might not be a horse thief, an elderly preacher and his equally elderly dog, a murdering secessionist, and an invincible panther. Crook has created engaging characters the will remain in the reader's mind long after. Fabulous!

Reviews

Tom Miller's novel, The Philosopher's Flight, flings us into an American history altered by the special abilities of women.
America is fighting World War I with male soldiers on the front lines and female philosophers flying in for Rescue and Evacuation. Philosophers walk a fine line this world has between magic and science, allowing them to transform chemicals to their will or defy gravity and fly. Robert Weekes wants to walk that line, not march in ranks with a gun. 
Robert will have to prove himself in the art of flying and work harder still from there to convince the women at Radcliffe college that he is ready for Rescue and Evac. Robert and many of the women around him are also thrust into political and social challenges that leaves them all questioning what they are willing to do with the power given to them.
Robert is not naturally talented and his struggle is well documented to the point that as a reader you learn to understand the technical parts of philosophy. What you read is what you get and more often than not, the first image that pops into your head is what is happening. Magic and science intermingles to make wild imaginings of upside down cake full of helium or ink moving across a page to form a map possible. Despite heavy social content within this novel, it is a light read and much of it is spent within this wonderful world Tom Miller created.
