Whilst I’m not a big fan of romantic storylines, both the titles below sound as though there’s a lot more going on. The first, The Death House, is from Sarah Pinborough an acclaimed thriller writer who has taken on the idea of star crossed lovers and death in a most unflinching style. The second, Signal to Noise is a debut from Silvia Moreno-Garcia who has structured her fantasy novel around the connection we have as humans with music.

Check out the blurbs and covers..

Toby’s life is perfectly normal . . . until it was unravelled by something as simple as a blood test.

Taken from his family, Toby now lives in the Death House; an out-of-time existence far from the modern world, where he, and the others who live there, are studied by Matron and her team of nurses. They’re looking for any sign of sickness. Any sign of their wards changing. Any sign that it’s time to take them to the sanatorium.No one returns from the sanatorium.

Withdrawn from his house-mates and living in his memories of the past, Toby spends his days fighting his fear. But then a new arrival in the house shatters the fragile peace, and everything changes
