September 2015 reading:

42. The Power of Six, by Pitticus Lore (406 pages)
John, Sam, and Six have managed to escape the Mogs, but have been labelled terrorists and are on the run. They need to try to find Six's chest, which has been taken by the Mogs. Meanwhile, half a world away, Seven is struggling to pull her Capan out of the fugue she's been in for years. They sheltered in a convent shortly after arriving on Earth, and never moved on, and her Capan has turned to earthly religion and lost faith in Lorien. If she doesn't manage to get her back, they're both in grave danger. Good, quick read.

43. Sapphique, by Catherine Fisher (470 pages)
Claudia thought helping Finn escape would solve everything, and Finn thought escaping would be the end of his troubles. Not so, as the Queen hopes to rid herself of both of them with the Warden gone. But Incarceron has plans, as well, and Attia and Keiro are mixed up in them, finding Sapphique's glove. And Incerceron's plans and capabilities may just trump the Queen's. Will any of them survive this? I liked it, but I also wanted to know more about the world itself and how the Protocol worked, so I felt a bit unfulfilled.

44. Spice & Wolf: Volume 1, by Isuna Hasekura (234 pages)
I was told I should read the light novels in addition to the manga, and I'm so glad I did. There's so much detail in the writing style, and I really found the story to be even more compelling the second time as a novel. Good book.
