Kathleen O'Neal Gear recommends

Extinction (2024)
Douglas Preston
"As with all of Preston's work, Extinction is clever, fast, and one hell of a good read. But most of all, it's smart. As anthropologists who write in this this genre, we consider Extinction outstanding. We raced through it and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next! Extinction takes the anthropological thriller to the next level!"
thumb
The Companions (2020)
Katie M Flynn
"The Companions is one of those rare novels that leave you feeling euphoric and hollow, filled with questions about the loss and loneliness that shape life after a loved one is gone…and comes back. A stunning debut novel. We can’t wait to read Katie M. Flynn’s next book."
thumb
Poacher's Moon (2008)
John D Nesbitt
"John Nesbitt's Poacher's Moon is a fresh new voice in the genre."
thumb
Long River (1995)
Joseph Bruchac
"Proves once again that Joseph Bruchac is the master of Native American mythic voice."
