The Regional Office is Under Attack by Manuel Gonzales

When people need help of an extraordinary, possibly otherworldly, and impossibly expensive nature, The Regional Office is the place to go. The Regional Office helps in any way it can, at any time. Except today. Today, the regional office is under attack. The leader of the attack? A seventeen-year-old self-proclaimed supergirl named Rose who’s been put in charge of a group of highly trained, grunting mercenaries and is just realizing management isn’t really her thing. Trained as an assassin, she’s just following orders until she encounters the Regional Office’s most devoted defender, Sarah. Fast-paced, hilarious, and entirely unexpected, this story’s not to be missed! -Justus


The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee

I can’t get over this novel. Alexander Chee’s masterpiece has crawled into my mind and is living there, like a beautiful parasite—or, in the language of this novel, like a kept woman. Set in Paris in the 1800s, when opera was king and scandal was queen, the story follows a young woman who keeps so many secrets from so many people that you almost can’t believe you get to learn them all. The novel, like an opera, swings from tragedy to victory and back again, and the prose is beautiful enough to be the decadent decoration on the theater. A truly stunning book. -Hilary
