March books

I read, and reread, some wonderful books in March. Evidently though, I'm in a sci-fi/fantasy mood because I didn't read a single mystery last month.

Every time David Weber has a new Honor Harrington book come out, I reread the whole series again! Like Dido's music, they never get old to me. I read the first six books in the series this month:
On Basilisk Station, The Honor of the Queen, A Short Victorious War, Field of Dishonor, Flag in Exile, Honor Among Enemies

Rachel Caine starts a sequel series to her Weather Warden series with Undone.
Cassiel is stripped of her Djinn status and forced to become human after refusing a direct command of her ruler. She finds a place among the Weather Wardens though not many of them trust a former Djinn. A very good book.

Kristine Kathryn Rusch (local author!!!) has her 7th Retrieval Artist novel out, Duplicate Effort.
Miles is trying to find a way to bring a corrupt law firm to justice when the investigative reporter he has working on it is murdered along with her bodyguard in a very exclusive club on the Moon. At the same time, his dead daughter's clone Talia, discovers she's got 5 "sisters" and runs away in search of them. As he searches for Talia, he learns that the killer is doing the same...is there a connection between the two cases? A very good book!

And two YA books in Terri Farley's Wild Horse Island series:
Faraway Filly, Galloping Gold
