I can recommend 3 books that are part of different series but work as stand alone novels.

West of Eden by Harry Harrison. One of the most fully realized nonhuman (they're not alien) species ever.

Wildseed by Octavia Butler. It's great for comic book fans because it shows a more realistic look at super powers. Also has great characters.

The Snow Queen by Joan Vinge - A very interesting read for the celestial mechanics of the main planet. If you like this and want to read more, skip the second book World's End because it's not very good and everything is recapped in the third book The Summer Queen.
