Sneak Peek: December 2017 Indie Next List

Ho ho ho! These four Macmillan titles made the December 2017 Indie Next list!

YEAR ONE: Chronicles of the One by Nora Roberts
Two starred reviews! In the stunning beginning to an epic hardcover trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts weaves an enthralling saga of suspense, survival, and the journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives. “Roberts’ new direction is electric and ground-breaking. A fast-paced, mesmerizing, and thought-provoking novel that will no doubt add to Roberts’ legions of fans.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THREE DAUGHTERS OF EVE by Elif Shafak
Peri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrests it back, a photograph falls to the ground: an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. This relic from a past unearths a love that Peri has tried desperately to forget and the scandal that tore the three women apart. “Shafak’s…portrait of a woman in existential crisis feels universal, shining clarifying light on Islam—and religious spirituality in general—within the frame of today’s world.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE VANISHING SEASON by Joanna Schaffhausen
In the 2016 Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award winner, Ellery Hathaway is the only one who knows the real reason a person goes missing around her birthday each year in her small Massachussets town. “Powerful… [T]he complex plot and affecting characters—especially gritty survivor Ellie and her basset hound, Bump—make for some nail-bitingly tense thrills.” — Publishers Weekly

ULTRALUMINOUS by Katherine Faw
Girlfriend. Prostitute. Addict. Terrorist? Who is K? “Faw’s writing is raw and not for all tastes, but this incisive character study, featuring an exceptionally clear and memorable prose style, should find its audience.” — Publishers Weekly
