Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. After a bit of a cover drought for a while, it looks like all of the new artwork is exploding onto the scene the last couple of days. Leigh Bardugo‘s Ruin and Rising cover just came out, and I am glad they didn’t change the design for this third book in the Grisha series. It is due out on June 17th.
Sticking with the red, Reap the Wind is the title of the next book from Karen Chance‘s Cassie Palmer series, and it will be out sometime later this year.
Once again, I am doing a bit of updating, and I came across a couple of tidbits you might find interesting There wasn’t a lot new, since I just did an update a couple of weeks ago, but…
The second book of Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s upcoming The Dark Elements series will be called Stone Cold Touch, and it will be released mid-2014, from what I understand.
Patricia Briggs will release a compilation of short stories set in the Mercyverse, including all the stories from previous anthologies as well as several new ones. Shifting Shadows will be released in hardcover next October.
For whatever reason, Meljean Brooks‘ next Iron Seas book seems to have been shifted all over in terms of release date, but now it looks like The Kraken King is finally set for next August.
Fans of Amanda Carlson‘s Jessica McClain series will be happy to know that there is a fourth book on the horizon. Red Blooded will be released sometime next year.
Book number seven from Karen Chance‘s Cassandra Palmer series will be released in 2014 as well, and it will be called Reap the Wind.
And finally, it looks like the Underworld Detection Agency series from Hannah Jayne is drawing to a close. Under the Final Moon will be released on August 5th.
Happy Weekend to all. Tonight I will be upping Doug’s review of Amanda Arista’s Urban Panther series, but I thought I would add a quick cover post before I head to work. There are five new ones this time, most of which I grabbed from Goodreads. This first one is from the Night Prowler series from J.T. Geissinger. Rapture’s Edge will be released on June 18th.
The Cassie Palmer series from Karen Chance (I always think Cassie Palmer is the author’s name. Always) continues when Tempt the Stars is released on October 1st.
These next three are all young adult. Siege and Storm is the title of the next book in Leigh Bardugo‘s The Grisha series, and it will be released on June 4th.
And number four is from Michelle Vail. The Unchosen is part of her Reaper Diaries series, and it will be released later this year.
And finally for today is the cover for The Unbound. It is from Victoria Schwab‘s Archived series, and it will be released later this year, as well.
That is it for today. Anything you are looking forward to? Which cover is your favorite?
As always, in the process of updating the new release pages, I found a few more books that are on the horizon.
The second book of Coreene Callahan‘s new Knight Avenged series has been pushed way back to April 8th of next year.
November 5th will see the next Bound by Magick book from Lauren Dane, called Burning Wild.
November 5th is also the date for a Thea Harrison Elder Races book, a Meljean Brook Iron Seas book, and Nalini Singh‘s next Guild Hunter book (featuring Raphael and Elena). All have titles TBA.
Author Lauren Kate‘s Fallen series (supposedly being optioned for a movie) is finished, so it looks like she is turning her attention to a new series, called Teardrop. The first book, also called Teardrop, will be hitting the shelves on October 22nd.
October 1st is the release date for Caris Roane‘s next Ascension novel, Born in Chains.
Rather than info, this is more like lack of info. Christine Feehan was recently asked what she would be working on next, and she said that after the long delayed Leopard’s Prey she was in fact without a contract. She was not sure what would be coming, or when we would get it. If I remember correctly, this same situation came up last year with Ms. Feehan, which just seems so strange to me.
Hannah Jayne‘s next Underworld Detection Agency novel, Under a Spell, will be out on August 13th.
To Kiss a Dragon is the title of the next G.A. Aiken Dragon Kin book, and it is scheduled for release on October 1st. No clue who this one is about, and if ever there was a series that needed a character guide, this is it.
The pre-order links are up for Keri Arthur‘s 6th Dark Angels book, Darkness Splintered. It will be out on November 5th.
A couple of weeks ago, word came out that Devon Monk was starting an Allie Beckstrom spin-off series called Broken Magic. Well, the pre-order links for the first book, Hell Bent, are up now. It is due out on November 5th.
October 1st is the release date for the next Cassie Palmer book from author Karen Chance, called Tempt the Stars.
Anything there you are looking forward to, or are you giving most of them a pass? It looks like there is a ton coming out on November 5th, for some odd reason, so might have to save up for that weeks’ order.
Out next June will be the next book in the Cassie Palmer series from Karen Chance, this one called Hunt the Moon. I have to admit, this series has completely slipped under my radar…I don’t remember ever seeing any of these books on my hunts.
