Uber Books With That Certain Kick

One of my favorite books of all time is Katherine Neville's THE EIGHT. It was an extraordinary blend of suspense, historical, alternative history, super secret society stuff, and even a bit of romance. I've reread this book many times.

Well, it's been 20 (?!) years and Neville has finally penned a sequel! Squuuueeeee. It's called THE FIRE.



It picks up 30 years after The Eight and the protagonist is the daughter of The Eight's heroine. The Fire is coming out sometime in October and I'm already saving my pennies so I can get my hands on this book ASAP.

If you've never read The Eight and enjoy stories with conspiracy/secret society type elements, I highly recommend it. It starts out reading like a suspense, about the main character working for some very, very important law company (there are eight powerful ones) and from there, becomes a treasure hunt story as she looks for a missing chess set that every powerful figure in history seemed to have owned at one point or another. Then the story morphs into a historical with a parallel storyline and here are where the paranormal and romantic elements emerge and before you can even catch your breath, the story turns into a conspiracy/alternative history story. There is just no way to describe the ride ;-), except that it's an unforgettable tale, masterfully told.

So, that's why I'm saving my pennies this month (besides the electric bill, which seems to have doubled....)

Have any of you read The Eight?

What story still holds your attention even though it's been years? It doesn't have to be 20 years old. I still reread Dodd's Candle In The Window (late 90s?), all of Anne Stuart's Onyx releases (also late 90s), and a few others written in the early 2000s. I don't just mean comfort reads. These books are just as fresh as when I first read them, groundbreaking at that time because I've never read that kind of twist/character/emotional impact before. I'm curious to see what books gave you that kind of kick!

I have The Eight but haven't read it yet. I didn't know it was so multi-layered. I'll have to drag it closer to the top of my TBR pile.

I love Lisa Kleypas' Suddenly You and Dreaming of You. The hero's are just yummy and the stories take a different turn for the historical genre. I also love-love-love all things Jude Deveraux. Although her more recent workss are not my favorites, my loyalty for her is absolute. Oh, and Sandra Brown's books Envy and Slow Heat in Heaven. If you can listen to the Audiobook you will fall in love with the hero Cash Boudreaux.

Those are all great books, Deb. I must try to listen to the Sandra Brown one. I love the book--one of my keepers--but I never listen to audio because I tend to fall asleep and miss sections. But if the guy has a nice voice, maybe I'll try again this time ;-).
