Favorite Summer Reads

I didn't get a ton of reading done this summer--too busy trying to keep up with writing on top of all the camping, jet-skiing, rock-climbing, and mudding that we did! :) Several books stand out to me as favorites this summer:

Rift Jump by Greg Mitchell
A sinister threat is growing in the void between realities, and Michael has been recruited to stop it. Ripped from his own violent life, he is sent rift jumping to other worlds seeking out the agents of the Dark and putting them to an end by any means necessary. The love of his life, Sara, joins him as he battles Civil War spaceships, sea serpents, superpowered humans, and even his own duplicate from a parallel timeline. But the darkness he fights is growing within him too, calling him to the same destiny as every other Michael from every other world. If he is to change his fate, he must learn to love, to forgive, to trust, and to let the man in the Stetson guide him to become the warrior of the Light he was always meant to be.

Night Train to Rigel by Timothy Zahn

It begins when a man delivers a message for former government agent Frank Compton--only to fall dead at his feet. The message is a summons from the Spiders, the exotic and mysterious creatures who run the Quadrail, an incredible transportation system connecting civilizations across the galaxy. The Spiders believe that someone or something is preparing to attack their entire network and the worlds it serves, by smuggling battleships through the Quadrail--something that should be impossible to do. Compton, with the aid of a beautiful but enigmatic agent of the Spiders, is their last hope.

Because nobody else has been able to find the elusive enemy who seeks to enslave the entire galaxy…and Earth is its next target.

And a couple that I've had the privilege to read before publication, either as a beta reader or as it has been written:

Monster by Mirriam Neal

Seeking Unseen by Kat Heckenbach

I've really enjoyed reading the steampunk trilogy by Westerfield, Leviathan/Behemoth/Goliath. :-)

Also, if you're going to moderate comments, can you turn off the capatcha? I have the hardest time seeing the words.
