Happy Endings and New Beginnings…

Pheonix was kind enough to send me over her notes from the RT book convention about some PNR/UF series that are coming to a close soon, and that got me thinking about who is wrapping up one world, and starting on a new one. It is hard to let go of a favorite series, but when you have something new to look forward to it takes some of the sting out of it.

  • Kim Harrison‘s popular Hollows series is calling it quits with the release of the 13th book, The Witch With No Name, on September 9th. She went on to give a little bit of info on her new project, which will be about a slightly older female heroine, written from the third person point of view. “It’s a twist on what I usually write, and I’m so excited about it,” she added.
  • Larissa Ione is also wrapping up the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series. She said “I didn’t want to keep adding new characters and I didn’t want to keep adding new sequel bait.” I haven’t seen anything listed after Revenant‘s book, so I wonder if that is the finale? Interestingly, she and Stephanie Tyler are returning to their Sydney Croft ACRO series with a couple of new novellas in the works.
  • P.C. Cast‘s House of Night series is finished this October with the release of Redeemed. No word yet on what is in store after that.
  • Not one but two series from Gena Showalter are wrapping up soon, with both The White Rabbit Chronicles and Otherworld Assassin stories finishing at a trilogy. And she is replacing them with two new series. She has a new four book YA series in the works, and a New Adult Contemporary trilogy + novella called The Original Heartbreakers. The novella will be called The One You Want, and the first full book called The Closer You Are will follow next March. It will be followed by The Hotter You Burn and then The Harder You Fall.
  • Apparently, the publisher has chosen not to go ahead with Cassie Alexander‘s Edie Spence series, so she has turned to a new series called Sleeping With Monsters. This one seems to be a bit more on the steamy side of things. Book one is called The Haunted, and it will be followed by The Hunted in August.
  • We have talked before about J.R. Ward finishing up her Fallen Angels books with the sixth title, Immortal, which is due out this October. Aaand I am still on the hunt for info about the rumored two new series heading our way. More to come on that one.
  • Chloe Neill still has at least three more full books and a novella in her Chicagoland Vampire series, but she is already looking ahead and planning a new series for 2015. No title is available as yet, but a bit of a teaser is out. “After humans overcome a shocking attack by supernaturals centered in the Crescent City—the Second Battle of New Orleans—supernaturals are forced into a walled community known as the District. It’s not good—or safe—to have magic, so Claire Connolly risks everything when she uses her secret magic to protect a friend. Claire quickly learns the world is more complicated than she ever knew . . . and allies are hard to come by.” Interesting…
  • Night Huntress has been done for a few months now, and the end is in sight for Night Prince, but we have Jeaniene Frost‘s New Adult Broken Destiny series to look forward to. The Beautiful Ashes heads our way at the end of August.
  • And Delilah S. Dawson ended her popular Blud series this past January, but has since turned her attention to more stand-alone (and varied) stories. Her YA paranormal Servants of the Storm comes out this August, and a very interesting book called Hit will come out next April. It is an alternate future/romantic suspense mash up where the United States was bought out by a Bank, and those in debt become the hunted. Or the hunters. Hm, like I said, interesting…
  • Oh, and on a positive note, both Kresley Cole and Nalini Singh have confirmed that their IAD and Psy/Changeling series have no end in sight. Nalini has said that the next book, featuring Aden, is the end of the second arc, but a new arc shall begin. Very, very good new indeed.

So, any you can add to the list? Anything new on the horizon from an old favorite?

Cover Lover – The Darkest Touch

Today is Monday. Not yesterday. If that fact would’ve occurred to me yesterday, I would’ve realized that I was a day early for the New Series Alerts post. Stupid extra day off threw my days out of whack. Anyways…

Torin!

Yep, Gena Showalter has released the cover for the next Lords of the Underworld book, The Darkest Touch, which is due out on November 25th. Torin is my favorite Lord, by far, and I so hope he gets a great story.

the darkest touchYes? No? Don’t care as long as you get the book? I was expecting long hair, but other than that I like it. Love the background.

Pick of the Week…

I know that there has been a bit of a change in the writing of Gena Showalter over the course of her last few books. From what I understand, some changes in her personal life and way of thinking led to a toning down in the steamier aspects of her books, but she has heard her fans and is heading back to more of the style that made her famous. No matter what, I always enjoy the worlds that she creates, and that makes her latest Angels of the Dark book, Burning Dawn, my pick of the week.

burning dawnSynopsis…

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Angels of the Dark tale about a winged warrior renowned for his ruthlessness, and the woman who becomes his obsession….

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy’s clutches—a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires.

Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane’s unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears—and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

What is your pick of the week? Is this one your must read, or has something else caught your fancy?

Cover Lover – 9 New Titles

Usually, when I do a cover lover post, I hope to find at least one that is a stand-out. I didn’t have much luck this time around. There isn’t anything that makes me gag, but then there isn’t much that would make me grab the book off of the shelf to read, either.

First up, we have the second book from the new Chris Marie Green Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire series. Another One Bites the Dust will be released on November 4th.

another one bites the dustShona Husk is up next with To Love a King, which is from her Annywn series. It is due out on October 22nd.

to love a kingGena Showalter is re-releasing Tempt Me Eternally in e-format on June 2nd. It is #4.5 of her Alien Huntress series, and it was originally released in the Deep Kiss of Winter duology with Kresley Cole.

tempt me eternallyThe Winter Long, from Seanan McGuire, will be released on September 2nd. It is from her October Daye series.

dreamer's poolMolly Cochran revisits her Legacy series with a novella called Wishes. The e-book will be released on April 29th.

wishesJulie Kagawa‘s new YA Talon series gets its start on October 28th with the release of the first book, also called Talon.

9780373211395.inddAnd finally, we have Marie Lu‘s new The Young Elites. It is the first book of the series of the same name, and it is due out on October 7th.

the young elitesWhat do you think? I think that both Talon and The Young Elites are pretty, but they gave me more of a novella cover vibe rather than the first books of much anticipated new series from two successful authors.

This and That…

After a great few days for finding new cover art, I thought I would do just a random post about some info I also came across. This is a bit of a mixed bag, but hopefully you will find something interesting…

  • many thanks to Darchelle M., who let me know that Christine Feehan has announced that there is another Ghostwalker book on the horizon. Viper Game, from all indication, will be Wyatt Fontenot’s book (Raoul’s brother and member of the mysterious team four). If the schedule holds, then we could have our hands on this in her usual December/January release spot.
  • I am not sure how many of you followed the recently wrapped up e-serial Bane Chronicles from Cassandra Clare, but the pre-order links are now up for the hardcover release as well. It will be out on November 11th.
  • I had seen a couple of references around to Gena Showalter‘s next Lords of the Underworld book (The Darkest Touch, due out November 25th), and someone called “the Red Queen”. I had no clue what that was about until I found the cover blurb earlier today…

From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet….

Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.

She is Keeley Cael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean the end for her, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.

  • also from blurb-landia comes the one for Night’s Honor, which is the next Elder Races book from Thea Harrison that is due out on September 2nd…

In USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison’s latest Novel of the Elder Races, a woman finds herself in need of protection—and seduced by honor…

On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she’s vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That’s why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.

The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can’t ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier’s world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers—both to her life and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past…

  • fans of Robin D. Owens will be glad to know that the second book of her new Ghost Seer series, Ghost Layer, will be out on September 2nd. But, really? Ghost Layer?

That is about it. What about you, have you heard or seen anything interesting about upcoming releases?

Cover Lover – 8 New Titles

I am a bit surprised to have come across so many new covers just a couple of days after my last cover post, but I guess you take what you can get, right? There are a couple of interesting ones in this pile, too, like Gena Showalter‘s The Queen of Zombie Hearts. The third and final book of her White Rabbit Chronicles will be out on September 30th.

the queen of zombie heartsI thought this next one was pretty, but then all of the covers from Yasmine Galenorn‘s Otherworld series have been. Priestess Dreaming is due out this October.

9780515154757_PriestessDreaming.inddNot quite sure about this next one, especially since the first cover in the Twixt series was quite eye catching and this one…isn’t. Anyways, Invisible from Dawn Metcalf is due out on September 30th.

invisibleIt looks like Meljean Brook is splitting up her next Iron Seas book into an 8-part serial, and the first installment of will be called The Kraken King and the Scribbling Spinster. Look for it on April 15th in e-book format.

the kraken king part 1I usually consider myself decently informed about books and authors (I spend enough time hunting down covers and info and the like), but somehow I had totally missed that there is a new series in the works from Devon Monk. I saw the cover for House Immortal over on All Things Urban Fantasy, and it looks like it will be out this September.

House Immortal.inddOne thing that triggers my OCD is when there is a change in cover design after the first book of a series is already released. That happened with Gennifer Albin‘s Crewel World, among others. Unraveled is the the third book in the series, and it will be out on October 7th.

unraveledNext up is the second book from C.C. Hunter‘s Shadow Falls: After Dark series, Eternal. This one has a release date of November 18th.

eternalAnd this final one is from Amanda Sun‘s Paper Dolls series. Rain is due out on June 24th.

rainWhat do you think of this batch? Anything stand out for you, or anything you are dying to get your hands on?

From the Author Pages…

I just want to start this post by saying thanks. Many of you have been sending me e-mails and leaving comments about the site, and I much appreciate you taking the time to drop a line. I plan on FINISHING adding the recommendations to the 101 Series page this set of days off – what is taking so long is the fact that I suck at trying to summarize a whole series into a paragraph. Especially one I haven’t read myself.

Oh, the character guides are pretty much up to date now. I am only behind on adding Endless Knight (up next), Archangel’s Legion (hopefully by next week), and Kinked (haven’t gotten my copy yet). I am also still plugging away on the Fever Series guide, but not in a rush since Burned was pushed back to July. And PhoenixFyre is working on both of J.R. Ward’s series, which is a huge undertaking.

There are a few random tidbits that came up from updating the author pages, too. For example, the blurb was released for the second book of Cynthia Eden‘s upcoming Phoenix Fire series, Once Bitten, Twice Burned.

once bitten twice burnedSynopsis…

Blood–And Lust

Ryder Duncan keeps his secrets. With a twisted scientist starving him in a 10 x 12 cell, it’s not easy to conceal the abilities that set him apart from other vampires, or his plans for escape. But survival–and revenge–are worth waiting for. Until the so-called doctor tempts his appetites with something special: a woman, with a soft Southern accent and a scent like flowers. Sabine.

Sabine Acadia didn’t volunteer to be dinner. She was kidnapped and tossed into the cage of a monster. A monster with fierce green eyes, a body that speaks of ruthless power–but a touch gentle as a caress. Ryder knows things about her, secrets Sabine needs to learn fast. Because while they might soon escape this prison, she’s fighting an urge to set all her desires free. . .

Oh, and the synopsis for Charley Davidson #6 from Darynda Jones also went public last week. Sixth Grave on the Edge is due out on May 20th.

sixth graveSynopsis…

Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it’s time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?

Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn’t come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.

Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she’s used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.

Gena Showalter has announced the title of her third White Rabbit Chronicles book, too. The Queen of Zombie Hearts will be out in September 2014. That will be followed by Torin’s Lords of the Underworld book, The Darkest Touch, in November. Torin, Torin, Torin. Please let this one be good. Please…

Of course, after I had posted this update, I then came across the blurb for the next Sisters of the Heart book from Christine Feehan. Air Bound will be released on May 27th.

Synopsis…

For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating ‘patterns’ in the air around her-whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered.

Airiana fled the program, but she couldn’t outrun the desperate members of a shadowy cabal who want her, who need her, who will kill to get her. Kidnapped and held aboard a ship bound for dangerous seas, her only chance for rescue is Maxim Prakenskii. He has his reasons for helping her, but he isn’t about to reveal them to Airiana. Not yet. Not as the two are drawn together as moth to flame. Not when there are so many secrets yet untold that could shatter the quaint community of Sea Haven and all who reside there…

I am still haunting Ilona Andrews‘ blog for snippets of their new Avon series, and a new brief one was released today. I am ridiculously excited for this (especially based on a couple of snippets, but it looks damn good), but that doesn’t mean I have forgotten Kate. The blurb for Magic Breaks is out…and it sounds great too.

magicbreaksSynopsis…

No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: if there’s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it…

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers. Since Kate’s connection to Roland has come out into the open, no one is safe—especially those closest to Kate.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend the Conclave, a gathering of the leaders from the various supernatural factions in Atlanta. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered there, apparently at the hands of a shapeshifter, Kate is given only twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war which could destroy everything she holds dear…

I know there was a bit of confusion about the Elemental Assassin series from Jennifer Estep. I had heard questions of whether the upcoming tenth book, The Spider, would be the last. Turns out there will be at least two more books, with Poison Promise being released next June 24th.

Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s great The Covenant series recently ended with the release of Sentinel (I haven’t read it yet, because if I don’t read it, it isn’t done. Simple logic). She is also wrapping up the even better Lux series next year, but we have a new series to look forward to. The title of the second full book in her upcoming The Dark Elements series has been released, and it looks like Stone Cold Touch will be out sometime next fall.

I haven’t been able to track down much J.R. Ward info lately, but it does appear that the sixth Fallen Angels book is in the works. Immortal should be out next September or October, if she holds to her current release schedule.

Just today I found a new listing for Kresley Cole over on Amazon called Dark Skye. This pre-order link shows a release date of August 5th, and as a 384 page hardcover book, that can only mean IAD. Which can only mean Lanthe and Thronos…which can only mean almost a year to wait.

Lara Adrian‘s next Midnight Breed book, Crave the Night, has been pushed back quite a ways. Originally slated for a February 25th release, it is now being listed for August 5th. Nearly 6 months, which is a bummer.

There was a Q&A session with Nalini Singh on Facebook recently, and she has stated that she thinks the next Guild Hunter book will feature Ashwini and Janvier (thanks to Lidy who pointed it out, too). I do love me some Janvier and Ash, and you just know their story will be a great addition to the series. From what Nalini said, there will be some overlap between the events in their book and Archangel’s Legion, so we may get a ground-level take on the huge battle. And more Nassir. Nice. And as a bonus, she said there is a good chance the next Psy/Changeling book after Shield of Winter will be about Aden (and Alice. I swear it is).

That about wraps it up. Anything catch your eye? What are you most looking forward to heading into 2014?

This Week’s Book Haul…

Sometimes I wonder about myself. I keep adding, and adding, and ADDING to the huge TBR pile, all the while knowing that I already have enough to read to last me a year. But still, it grows. This week is shaping up to be a prime example of that.

I started off with one that Doug Meeks recently reviewed. Larissa Ione‘s Bound by Night is the first book of her new MoonBound Clan Vampires series.

bound by nightSynopsis…

A WOMAN OUT FOR BLOOD
Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A VAMPIRE OUT FOR REVENGE
A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

Next up is one that I tried to resist. Really. I wasn’t sure how much of a paranormal angle it had, and that is all I read, but of course I finally broke down and ordered Kelley Armstrong‘s Omens.

omensSynopsis…

Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.

But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.

Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.

Possession from J.R. Ward was up next. Of course, I haven’t read the first four yet, but it will happen. One day.

possessionSynopsis…

When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart, throw off her inhibitions, and start really living, she’s unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path.  Torn between them, she doesn’t know which to choose–or what kind of dire consequences could follow.

Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil–literally.  As yet another soul is unwittingly caught in the battle between him and the demon Devina, his fixation on an innocent trapped in Hell threatens to sidetrack him from his sacred duty…

Can good still prevail if true love makes a savior weak?  And will a woman’s future be the key, or the curse, for all of humanity?  Only time, and hearts, will tell.

I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on Untold. It is the second book of Sarah Rees Brennan‘s Lynburn Legacy series, and the first book was a total surprise favorite. Book two is just as quirky and funny, but having the two main characters at odds for pretty much the whole book was a bit of a let down. Still good, though.

untoldSynopsis…

It’s time to choose sides. . . .

In this second book in the Lynburn Legacy, the sorcerous roots of Sorry-in-the-Vale have been exposed. No one in the town is safe, and a decision must be made: pay the sorcerers’ blood sacrifice, or fight. Will the townspeople (magical and not) become “owned” by the sorcerers who believe it is their right to rule? If Kami Glass has anything to say about it, evil will not win. Despite having given up her own piece of magic, she is determined to do everything she can to make a difference. And whether they want to or not, her circle of friends (and potential boyfriends) will not be able to help but go along with her unusual tactics.

I enjoyed the first Gena Showalter White Rabbit Chronicles book, but for some reason when the second book came all I could muster was a “Eh. Later”. I haven’t checked the reviews yet for Through the Zombie Glass, but I hope it manages to snag my attention after all.

through the zombie glassSynopsis…

Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they’ve got mine…

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole’s secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking…and if she fails at a single task, they’re all doomed.

And for some reason, my interest in Kresley Cole‘s second Arcana Chronicles book, Endless Knight, got revved into high gear in the last couple of weeks. Not sure if it is because of all the little snippets I have been catching or what, but I will be diving into this one right after Untold is finished.

endless knightSynopsis…

Shocking secrets

Evie has fully come into her powers as the Tarot Empress, and Jack was there to see it all. She now knows that the teens who’ve been reincarnated as the Tarot are in the throes of an epic battle. It’s kill or be killed, and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.

Unexpected allies

With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals.

Gut-wrenching treachery

When Evie meets Death, things get even more complicated. Though falling for Jack, she’s drawn to the dangerous Endless Knight as well. Somehow the Empress and Death share a history, one that Evie can’t remember—but Death can’t forget…

What did you get your hands on this week? If you have already checked out any of these ones, what did you think of them? I am particularly curious about Omens – I know that was a big one for a lot of readers. What did you think?
