Good Stuff Comin’! Sept/Oct Urban Fantasy Release Dates

Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys Cover

Coming Soon!  Release Date:  9/18/12

For those who enjoy Urban Fantasy, like myself, there’s good stuff ahead!  Here are a few of the titles coming to a bookstore near you.  All are available on, too.

Coming 9/4/12:

  • Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuire.  Those who haven’t been reading the Toby Daye series should give it a chance.  The world is very well done, featuring a strong Fae story line, with other assorted and interesting characters thrown in, including the infamous Tybalt, King of the Cats, who is my personal favorite.
  • An Apple for the Creature, edited by Charlaine Harris.  This sounds like a pretty good anthology of “creature” related short stories, by popular urban fantasy authors.  If you don’t read anthologies…why ever not?  They are so much fun when you only have a limited amount of reading time.  I like them for reading between novels, too.  Nothing like a well done short story to transition from one world to another.  By the time I’ve read a story or two, I’m ready to start the next “big” book on my list.
  • Monster Hunter: Legion by Larry Correia.  I love this series.  It’s action-packed and male-oriented, but “girls like it, too.”   There’s not a firearm in the world Correia isn’t familair with, apparently, and some that aren’t even OF this world.  It’s kick-you-know-what and take no names, every step of the way.  Start with Monster Hunter International, and follow the action in the proper sequence to understand what’s going on.  It’s a great ride.
  • Vampire Empire  Book Three:  The Kingmakers by Clay and Susan Griffith.  If you like steampunk, this is the vampire book for you.  Airships, a steampunk staple, combined with some really scary vampires, alternate history, and The Greyfriar.  What fun!  Again, read the books in order, starting with Vampire Empire #1.  It’s a fun story.

Coming 9/11/12:

  • A Wanted Man by Lee Child.  (Note:  This is NOT an Urban Fantasy series, but since it’s coming out soon, I thought I’d go ahead and add it to the list.)  Check out my review of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series.  It’s always a good, solid adventure, and Reacher is a force to be reckoned with.  I’ve seldom been disappointed in any of these books.

Coming 9/18/12:

  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.  I’ve read pretty much everything out there by Maggie Stiefvater and find her writing to be rich, descriptive, and evocative.  I enjoyed her Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, and a couple of her stand alone books, but it was The Scorpio Races that made me realize I would read pretty much anything she writes.  Puck and Sean Kendrick are a couple I’ll long remember, and don’t even get me started on the gloriously frightening capaill uisce, or water horses.  Oh, how I loved this particular Celtic myth.  The Raven Boys is Book One of a brand new series, and I have high hopes that it will be every bit as good.

Coming 10/2/12:

  • Death’s Rival by Faith Hunter.  A very strong  series featuring skinwalker, Jane Yellowrock.  This would be Book 5, and since I was perplexed at the end of Book 4, I’m really looking forward to it.  Jane is an intriguing character, not quite like any I’ve read about before.  Strong, fearless, and definitely NOT a PTGG.  (Painted Toenails Girly-Girl).

Coming 10/9/12:

  • Into the Woods: Tales From the Hollows and Beyond by Kim Harrison. A collection of short works published in one volume for the first time, and including Million Dollar Baby, an original novella about what happens when elven tycoon Trent Kalamack and Jenks the pixy team up to rescue Trent’s daughter.  We Rachel Morgan fans are counting the days for this one.

This is just a taste of what’s coming up in the next two monthsMark your calendars,  fellow Urban Fantasy Fans.  There’s Good Stuff Comin’!!!

If you decide to place an order with amazon, clicking through from my links will give me credit.  If you are enjoying  my reviews on Bookin’ It, it’s a great way to let me know!  Thanks!
