You should by this book. Why might you ask? Because it is made of awesome. Because the story is good and the writer, a miss Mur Laferty, is made of win. She first podcast the novel and accumulated a number of fans. This lead to the book deal. She is one of a new breed of writers proving there is another model for success in writing and it is really exciting.

"But the book," you may ask. "What is it about?"

Good question. You are the clever one.

The book is about what happens in a world of super powers, to all the folks with mere normal abilities. Not flying or superhuman strength but the power to know exactly what food someone wants or the power to keep things from being taken from you. Not quite extraordinary enough to be heroes. These folks, called third wavers, get shunned by the heroes and discounted by the public.

Then one day everything depends on one of them. Playing for Keeps is about how they deal with that day.

Pretty cool huh.

now go and buy it.

So... Piers Anthony's Xanth with the focus of the "Spot on the Wall" talent characters...

Sounds okay...
