I don't know if anyone already recommended martin's "a song of ice and fire". it's really worth it. I only read 4 books so far, but it's the best I've come across...

I reccomend Offa: Rise of the Englisc Warrior, a true story on a common ancestor between the volks of germany and England. It is very different and unique, with great UK reviews.

Thirty British troops a week are seeking medical help, toll of combat in Afghanistan.
A total of 3,021were diagnosed with `Adjustment disorder' between May 2010 and April 2012.
In places such as the US it is significantly higher.
Symptoms include self harming, drug abuse and anxiety attacks.
This is an account of a man, who to the detriment of his family and personal security refuses point blank to acknowledge these symptoms.

The Dancing Boy
Blinded by the heat, Tom Gillet, a British soldier is dragged back from an IED by Shafiq, a small Afghan boy. Luckily he lost a foot and not his life.
Shafiq wasn't so fortunate. His family was murdered by the Taliban as a warning to those who helped the coalition forces, and he was sold into a child trafficking ring as a dancing boy.
Discharged from the army and on the threshold of PTSD Gillet feels forced to return to Afghanistan to search for the boy in the hope of finding him a better life.
But what he encounters is a world full of shock, betrayal and lies.
Returning home to the UK he finds himself drawn into the horrors of something he never knew existed behind the closed doors of immigrant Britain.

The Dancing Boy

After losing a foot in Afghanistan, ex-soldier, Tom Gillet, returns to search for the young boy Shafiq, who saved his life by pulling him back from an IED. Aware Shafiq has been sold into child sex slavery as a dancing boy he plans to get the boy out of the country to safety. Close to achieving his aim Gillet is captured by Al Qaeda, taken to the Tora Bora caves on the Afghan/Pakistan border and forced under the threat of death to appear on video discrediting the coalition. Managing to escape, he begins a one man battle against the human trafficking of children into the UK with stunning results.
This book unashamedly gives an insight into just one country's guilt. A crime against humanity it exists in most other so called civilised countries and flourishes. It is a story of events from which people turn away as if it never existed.
Labelled a dark story, it serves to throw a light on the evil men do if left unchecked.
Available on Smashwords.

Chris Conquer meint:
have a look at The Birthday Party by Chris Conquer. A tragic story. It will make you laugh, cringe and cry. It will also upset you. There is a jewish part that brings out the horror of what happened in simple terms. There's love, hate and murder. Please read it.

I can recommend you a good book. The author is really new I just heard about her, but her book "Let him go" is really good! Her name is Kaitlyn Felt. The book is based on true events of her own life which makes it really authentic!

My new novel, Pyramid of the Dead: A Zombie Novel tells another version of how a few hundred Spanish Conquistadors brought down the Incan Empire. Even to this day no one is sure what happened. Using real names, battles and locations my story is a tale of greed and vengeance, black magic and demons with an army raised from the underworld.

I would like to recommend my own, recently published mystery/suspense novel, Aphrodesia. It centers on the world of perfumes and tells the story of a perfume student who creates a powerful aphrodisiac, only to become the prime suspect when a knockoff of his creation surfaces as the sole link in a series of passion-driven homicides.

Aphrodesia has received excellent reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Amazon customers (all 5-star). I invite you to read the reviews here: Aphrodesia: A Novel of Suspense

PTSD can do bad things to a mind. It sent Tom Gillet back to Afghanistan to search for the boy who saved his life. Trouble is, Al Qaeda was waiting for him, and for Gillet things were never the same again.

Jane Doe meint:
I loved 'How to be good' from Nick Hornby. He writes from the perspective of a woman who decides to leave her husband because she's fed up. As it turns out she's not an angel (all her thoughts written out reminded my of so many spats in my house) and doesn't completely give up on him, and he keeps trying 'to be good' as well. In quite surprising ways! Being written by (the man) Nick Hornby it's amazing to discover all his insights into a woman's psyche.
I also like everything by T.C. Boyle, one crazier than the next but all draw you in and don't let you go again.

If you haven't read it yet, I'd highly recommend my book "Through the Dark Wood" Book one in the Treasures of Darkness - Treasures of Light series. It's fantasy adventure fiction with a hint of supernatural added in. I've gotten good response from those who pre-read my novel prior to publishing... and the two reviews I have received are very positive. If you choose my book... Thanks! if you don't... I hope you find a good book you enjoy :o)
