Dubray Staff Recommended Read... A detective from a distant future is tasked with investigating glitches in the timeline. Taking place in the years 1912, 2020 and 2203, the stories are woven together masterfully to create a time-travel mystery unlike any I’ve read before. The sense of roads not taken, and the consequences of the smallest twists of fate, add a real depth of feeling. There is no detail too small to matter in the end, which speaks wonders of Mandel’s writing style and creative mind. Recommended by Ryan Coughlan, Dubray Cork
Dubray Staff Recommended Read... Enter a world of shadow magic and those who can wield the shadows, the eerily named Gloamists, hoard all the power. In this dark and gritty urban fantasy, our heroine is Charlie Hall, a morally ambiguous con artist and thief drawn to bad decisions. Black’s first foray into adult fiction is a fast-paced heist with all her usual trademarks: wonderfully flawed, wise cracking characters and a twisting, turning plot that will keep you guessing until the end. Recommended by Réiltín Joyce, Dubray Galway
Dubray Staff Recommended Read......From the author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, this is just as thrillingly atmospheric as her bestseller. Lonely and mute, orphan Olivia is invited to live with an uncle she never knew she had. While the house fulfils her every yearning dream for a home, it is shrouded in mystery - her uncle is long dead and all that remains is her hostile cousin, a house full of ghosts and a forbidden dark garden that draws her ever closer. Spine-chillingly good. Recommended by, Susan Walsh Dubray Support Office.
