Arthas: Rise of the Lich King
By Christie Golden

Fiction 2009

This book is based on the lore from the game World of Warcraft. Being an avid reader of fantasy, I was pleasantly surprised to find the book an intriguing look at a character's fall into darkness. While I've only a passing familiarity with World of Warcraft, it's a good companion to the online game. The author is noted for writing Star Wars novels, so her leap into more epic fantasy provides for some great writing.

Gerald's game
By Stephen King

Fiction 1992

A psychological horror where a woman ends up handcuffed to a bed after a bedroom escapade goes awry. This is a book to read alone on a dark night that will genuinely give you shivers. There are some passages of gore, but then again, it is Stephen King - master of horror and the macabre.
