So far, every book that I read by Neil Gaiman; I truly enjoyed.
He is an amazingly unique, imaginative writer. Love his stuff.
The Wolf in Winter - John Connolly. Arguably the fastest paced, most action filled Charlie Parker novel in awhile. Easily one of the top five in Connolly's series.
The Keeper of Lost Causes - Jussi Adler-Olsen. Denmark's answer to Jo NesbÝ, Adler-Olsen's novel shares similarities, like a damaged/disgraced police detective who has cases no one else wants to deal with thrust upon him. However, unlike the Harry Hole series, this book, while having a dark central plot, has much more wry humor and has just the right amount of plot twists. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Alien - Out of the Shadows - Tim Lebbon. Generally, it was an enjoyable, action-packed story worthy of the Alien franchise. It definitely felt like it was, at the very least, a "what if" of the continuing adventures in the Alien universe. Had it been a stand-alone novel like that, I would have enjoyed it more. However, the fact that Ripley is in it and this is actually considered 'canon' to the Alienverse weakened it. While it's easy to see the story as something that could occur, the fact that this now legitimately part of the greater universe, it sadly has a reprehensibly contrived ending to wedge it in so it can take place between Alien and Aliens. And being that there's two more of these novels, I'm guessing they too will have lazy devices to force them into the overall story arc.
