Below are some novels that are solid reads that you may not have stumbled across but might consider reading. I limited myself to six:
The Zombie Driven Life by David Wood
My Take: A fast paced, humorous despite the zombie-Apocalypse, story about a teen nobody surviving and learning a bit about life and himself along the way. Overall a great story.
Hocus Focus by Stephen Hines
My Take: A creative story with depth (and freaky magical contact lenses) that's a bit YA gritty with fun turns in the plot.
Equilibrium by Dora P. Archer
My Take: Doesn't claim to be anything other than an epic fantasy adventure and delivers with a unique setting and characters.
Confessions of a D-List Supervillian by Jim Bernheimer
My Take: They don't write super-hero stories like this one. Witty and an nearly impossible not to smile, if not laugh, at and with Calvin Matthew Stringel, better known as Mechani-Cal. A D-List Supervillain who has to step up as a good guy and save the world--and that's just the beginning of his troubles.
Loose Cannons and other Weapons of Mass Political Destruction by J.D. Elder
My Take: Combines politicians and pro wrestling, for a zany adventure that has a solid political message as a backdrop.
Defenders of the Covenant by Angie Lofthouse
My Take: A little more than your average SF, retaking the world from alien conquerors. Has a strong faith/religious element.
