2012 Aurealis Award - Science Fiction Novel

The Rook by Daniel O'Malley

Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey

“Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.

Or you'll get what you wish for.”

Sheltered in underground silos to protect them from the toxic outside environment, people go their whole life without seeing the surface. Except for the cleaners, who mysteriously walk away after their task, to die.

Blood of Dragons (Rain Wilds Chronicles - Book 4)

Robin Hobb's final book in the Rain Wilds Chronicles finds the dragons and their keepers on a quest to locate the lost city of Kelsingra where they must uncover the mythical silver wells that the dragons need for survival.

Can Tintaglia and the Elderlings unlock the secrets of the ancient city, or are they doomed to extinction?

 

If you haven't read the rest of the series, here are the first three books:

JUMP RIGHT INTO A GOOD BOOK

Inkheart and its sequels     Did you ever read a book that was so good you wanted to step right into the story and become one of the characters? Did you ever wish that the hero or the heroine could leap out of the book and join you for a chat? Of course one of the nice things about reading a book is that you can always set it down and come back to it later. You can set it down and go get a snack or visit a friend, and come back to it later. Or if you’re reading late at night and the story gets too scary you can set it down and turn on some more lights or decide to do something else and go back to reading in the daytime when the villain doesn’t seem so threatening.
