Top Pearls 2015 - Great Beginnings and Endings

Just a few more days left of 2015, so it's time to tell you about my Top Pearls of this year.

This year I started on a couple of new series and had to say goodbye to others. Here are the first books in a series that made me eager to get my trotters on the other books, and two books that ended a series in a way that made me want to reread the series because I didn't want it to be over.


Fortune's Pawn by Rachel Bach is the first book in a really awesome SF trilogy. I was hooked from the start and I've already read the whole trilogy. Recommended for SF fans, but also for people who don't like their SF 'hard-boiled'.

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine is a beautiful Steampunk YA read about the Library of Alexandria. I loved this first book and will be getting hold of the second book once it releases.

Larcout by K.A. Krantz is the first book in really cool Fantasy series. I loved the heroine and the world building. I'm eagerly awaiting book 2.

Matched by Ally Condie is one of those books I thought I would find entertaining, but instead it turned out to be really beautiful and touching. I have the other two books in this trilogy in my TBR pile.

Partials by Dan Wells is another book that took me by surprise. The Dystopian world in this book is grim and very intriguing. I read two of the three books in this trilogy so far, and have the last one in my TBR pile.


Age of Blood by Shauna Granger is the last book in the awesome Ash and Ruin trilogy. This trilogy is a must for everyone who loves Post Apocalyptic YA.

Deadland Rising by Rachel Aukes is the conclusion of the Deadland Saga, a truly amazing Zombie Apocalypse Trilogy. If you like your zombies nasty, your bad guys even worse, and your heroes flawed, but likeable, this is the trilogy you should get!

More Pearls tomorrow!
