April 2019 reading:

38. Play with Fire & Midnight at the Oasis, by Justin Gustainis (496 pages)
When places of worship in different parts of the country start burning, with a hint of ritualism, it turns out a group intends to open the gates of hell. Later, a sleeper cell with a djinn at their disposal plan an attack, but their djinn desires lion hearts. Overall interesting books.

39. In an Absent Dream, by Seanan McGuire (204 pages)
Lundy stumbles upon a doorway to a world based in the sort of logic she is used to, a doorway her father stumbled through as a child. There she feels she belongs, but her father wishes to keep her out of there. Dark, and super good.

40. Indexing, by Seanan McGuire (404 pages)
Harry has grown up knowing she has the potential to be pulled into the narrative and become Snow White, and so she instead fights against it, trying to save reality from being sucked into stories when the narrative activates unwitting victims. In her team is a Wicked Stepsister, a Shoe Elf, a normal, and a newbie... And the narrative is starting to act up...

41. The Rising of the Shield Hero: Volume 1, by Aneko Yusagi (336 pages)
Naofumi is shocked when a book pulls him into a magical world where he's expected to be a hero--but it's a delighted kind of shocked. The positives quickly wear off when his roll is considered lesser, and they turn dark when he's betrayed, robbed, and cast out, with no one to trust. He decides to survive, if only to leave this accursed world, no matter what it takes. I wasn't sure about this one at first, but it's really good.
