Well, I just read Terrier and Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce. They are about a girl named Beka Cooper, who trains to be a "Dog", one of the city guards. She has a few special abilities; she can talk to spirits that ride on pigeons, she can hear words that have been picked up by dust spinners, and she has a talking purple-eyed cat named Pounce. She is trained by Turnstall and Goodwin, who are some of the best dogs. She also makes friends with some newcomers to the Court of the Rogue. The Rogue controls crime in the city (like the Thieves' guild in Discworld). In the first book, she finds that a person called "The Shadow Snake" is stealing away children, and killing others.
I played the demo of Winter Voices. This game has generally gotten bad reviews, but I liked it. It seems to have a good story, something I call and "Interactive Movie", which is meant to be a story, but you can play it as well. It would be nice if the demo lasted for more than a few minutes, but maybe it is a short game. It was a nice game, with good artwork.
