Za kraj godine; najbolji naslovi po mom izboru

Evo nam i ove godine pri samom kraju. Što nam je ovu učinilo posebnom i boljom od prethodne pitanje je sad.

Pa kao vječiti pesimist mogla bih napisati kratko i jednostavno ništa, ali ipak neću.

Overload Flux by Carol Van Natta #review

The Central Galactic Concordance has been stable for two centuries, but trouble is brewing. A pandemic is affecting hundreds of civilized planets, and someone is stealing the vaccine...

Brilliant investigator Luka Foxe's hidden mental talent is out of control, making him barely able to function in the aftermath of violence, and the body count is rising. The convoluted trail leads to a corrupt pharma industry and the possibility of an illegal, planet-sized laboratory. In the face of increasing threats, he must rely on an enigmatic, lethal woman he just met, but she has deep secrets of her own.

Mairwen Morganthur hides extraordinary skills under the guise of a dull night-shift guard. The last thing she wants is to provide personal security for a hot-shot investigator, or to be plunged into a murky case involving sabotage, treachery, and the military covert operations division that would love to discover she’s still alive.
