Alec's Staff Picks
It's not escapism if you are escaping into your own world, so I enjoy a good science fiction or fantasy book. Science and nature are good, too, when I'm in the mood to expand my knowledge (which is quite often).
Title: A Confusion of Princes
Prince Khemri is effectively immortal, strongly psychic, and physically indomitable, so what has he to worry about? Considering the fact that this is the story of his first three deaths, he obviously has a lot to learn.
Reminiscent of Dune and Ender's Game, this book will appeal to anyone who appreciates a good, twisty coming-of-age story within a complex alien society.
