12 Highly Awaited SFF Novels from July until December 2012 (by Liviu Suciu)

Here I am not including Sharps by KJ Parker (July) and Great North Road by Peter F Hamilton (September/December) as I have read both with Sharps taking the #1 overall spot for the year for now, while Great North Road a highly recommended 2012 novel but not a top 25 as about 700 of its 1100 pages are outstanding Peter Hamilton, but 400 are boring and superfluous and unfortunately the first 250 pages of the book are mostly of that second kind. Sadly no Cold Steel by Kate Elliott in 2012 as that one would have been here otherwise. Also I am not sure what the status of the upcoming Christopher Priest Adjacent is as it would have been a top 5 here for sure.
