    I’m sorry to say I haven’t read a single one of these. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do in 2011.

    OMG, yay for the Jez Morrow book. It’s on my list too. Love it!

    Three and a quarter of these titles are on my list too, LOL. But maybe I should keep some suspense going and not say which ones.

    @Sarah Frantz: I really, really wanted to read that Jez Morrow book (your review was so enticing) but it was one of the books I somehow didn’t get to. The curse of being a slow reader…

    Bayou Moon – Illona Andrews (reviews by Shuzluva)

    I reviewed Bayou Moon as well — I think that’s what Jane means by “reviews by,” LOL.

    I’ve read 6 of these! I imagine my top 10 will bear a close resemblance. I read another Jez Morrow book I enjoyed. ‘Touch a Wolf’ from Torquere.

    I heartily recommend The Iron Duke. I bought it solely on the great things people were saying about it, and it’s earned. Excellent, different kind of book.
