For those not following my New Release Widgets in the sidebar, just a heads up. Several of my favorite series have just released new books, as follows:
Seanan McGuire’s second book in the Incryptid series, Midnight Blue-Light Special, was released yesterday. The first book, Discount Armageddon was terrific. Can’t wait to see how the sequel goes.
Slashback, the newest Rob Thurman book in the Leandros Brothers series is out. I’m really eager to receive my pre-order on this one. I’ve been crazy about this series since the very first book, though the last one troubled me greatly. I’m hoping Slashback will leave me feeling better about the changes Caliban is going through.
And last, but by no means least, Frost Burned, the new Patricia Briggs book in the Mercy Thompson series is now out. I really can’t say enough good things about Patricia Briggs. Her Mercy books, as well as her Alpha & Omega series, are among my very favorite Urban Fantasy reads.
If you’ve been following any of these series, you’ll want to check out these new books ASAP. I have high expectations for all of them.
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!
“Niko had raised me from birth. And he’d been on my ass since birth as well. Okay, a bit of an exaggeration, but close enough. Pick up your clothes, do your home-work, stop drawing cheat notes on your arm, eat your vegetables, quit trying to make out the porn through the scrambled gray zigzag lines. I was in my twenties now, so it was a little different. Run your five miles in the morning. Spar two hours in the afternoon. Study up on how to kill F through H in the Mythological Creature Compendium. Quit trying to make out the porn through the scrambled gray zigzag lines. Well, some things never changed.”
–Rob Thurman, Cal Leandros in Madhouse
My Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Rob Thurman’s newest thriller leaves me in a bit of a quandary. I love her Leandros Brothers series so much, I’ve never given any of those books less than 5 stars. I loved the two Korsak Brothers books enough to give them each 5 stars, too. I expected to love this book just as much, and to rate it just as highly. But after a day’s reflection, I’m finding Read more…
It’s a banner day at my house when the postman arrives with a box full of new books! I always have to do a happy dance around the kitchen when I get the box unwrapped and take a look at the treasures within. Tuesday, three books I’ve had marked for MONTHS on my release date calendar finally arrived, and I’m still Read more…
