Random Updates…

As I am going through the Series Reading list pages and updating, I am coming across a bit of new info on some upcoming releases.  As you can probably tell, I am only through the first three pages (so A-F), but it still amazes me how much info I can miss.

  • The second book of Jocelynn Drake‘s new Asylum Tales series will be called Dead Man’s Deal, and it will be out next May 7th.
  • This coming January, Lenore Appelhans will release her debut young adult book, Level 2.  Well, Amazon is now listing the second book in the Memory Chronicles series for January 2014, and it will be called…Level 3.  Huh.
  • The second book of Jill Archer‘s new Noon Onyx series, Fiery Edge of Steel, will be released on May 28th.
  • From what I can tell, there will be an e-book only anthology released February 12th called Vampires Gone Wild.  It will feature novellas from Kerrelyn Sparks, Amanda Arista, Pamela Palmer and Kim Falconer, with the Sparks story being from her Love at Stake series.
  • I enjoyed Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, and now the preorder links for book two of the series, Of Triton, are showing a release date of May 28th.  Looking forward to this one.
  • From what I am seeing around, Jennifer Lynn Barnes is starting a new young adult series in January with the release of Nobody.  It is about young people no one ever notices, which makes them the perfect assassins.
  • Some are saying this is stand alone, others are saying it is the first of a series, but Rachel Caine will release a book next July called Prince of Shadows.  It is a retelling of Romeo and Juliet from the point of view of Benvolio and Rosaline.
  • There will be a second book of the Chimney Rock series from Stella CameronDarkness Bred will be out next May 28th.
  • Karina Cooper will have a new Dark Mission novella out next March 5th called Wicked Lies.  It will be followed by another full length book, One for the Wicked, on April 30th.
  • Sarah Crossan‘s second Breathe novel, Resist, will be out October 13th.
  • Fans of Coreene Callahan‘s Dragonfury series will be happy.  Looks like there will be at least three more books in the series.  Fury of Desire, Fury of Obsession, and Fury of Surrender will be released starting next spring.
  • A fourth book from Lauren Dane‘s Bound By Magick series will be out next November.  No word on the title, as yet.
  • Also unnamed is the fourth book from Dianne Duvall‘s Immortal Guardians series, but it has a release date of October 1st.
  • Lexi George will release another Demon Hunting book next February 1st called Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar.  I completely forgot to post the cover, too.  Duh.
  • This one seems to have been on the back-burner for quite a while, but the final book in Kate Elliott‘s Spiritwalker trilogy, Cold Steel, is now showing a release date of June 25th.
  • There will be an anthology featuring Jennifer Estep, Rob Thurman, and Rachel Caine coming out next July 30th called Carniepunk.  I have no clue what series the stories will be coming from, though.
  • And finally, it looks like the ninth book in Jennifer Estep‘s Elemental Assassin series will be called Heart of Venom.  Look for it on August 27th.

New Series Alert…

That time again.  This is a big week for some much anticipated new series…and it looks like one of those weeks where you get too many books in to know where to start reading.  Terry Spear starts a new Jaguar shifter series this week with the release of Savage Hunger.  It is nice to see her branching out from her wolf shifter series.

Synopsis…

In the heat of the jungle, jaguars are clawed, dangerous, and hungry for love. With hopes of overcoming night terrors and thanking the man who saved her life, Kathleen McKnight returns to the Amazon. A jaguar at heart, Connor Anderson doesn’t just protect her, but wants to claim her for his own.

The Jaguar Series reading list is HERE.

This second one comes from Jacqueline Carey and is called Dark Currents.  It is book one of the Agent of Hel series.

Synopsis…

Dark Currents is set in a small Midwestern resort town where paranormal tourism is a booming business. Daisy Johanssen, an incubus’ daughter raised by a loving single mom, is the liaison between the eldritch community and mundane authorities.

Most of the time that doesn’t entail anything more challenging than retrieving stolen goods from a puckish pickpocket or tracking down a tourist led astray by a will-o’-the-wisp, but when a young man drowns in an apparent accident that’s not what it seems, Daisy’s job turns deadly earnest.

This one takes the award for most disturbing cover-model outfit on a male.  Lord, I still keep staring at that shirt…thing.  Anyways, Revelation is the first book of The Seven Signs series from Erica Hayes.

Synopsis…

Blind faith is for fools. That’s what Dr. Morgan Sterling believes. And she’s going to prove it by curing the zombie plague ravaging her city’s slums. She’s certain it’s not a sign of the End of Days, but a nasty disease — until an angel appears in her morgue in a flash of glory.

Luniel is not just a fallen angel. He’s a powerful warrior sworn to fight evil in hopes of a chance at redemption. He’s after the demon princes who are stealing the seven vials of holy wrath which, when perverted, will unleash eternal hell on earth.

To stop the plague, Luniel needs Morgan’s help, and her faith. But Morgan believes science is their salvation. If the zombie plague is a demonic curse — and if Luniel is true — he’ll have to prove it. Even if he loses his heart to true love or his soul to Hell…

Oddly enough, both books one and two of the Sunwalker Saga are being released this week.  Previously released in e-format, Shia MacLeod‘s Kissed by Darkness and Kissed by Fire make their print debuts tomorrow.

Synopsis…

Danger is always on the menu for Morgan Bailey, a sexy and street-smart bounty hunter, who prowls the dark underworld of Portland, Oregon hunting creatures of the night. Morgan’s never met a vampire she couldn’t dust or a demon she couldn’t kill until she’s hired to destroy a new kind of mystical threat: the Sunwalker.

A powerful immortal once believed myth, the Sunwalker carries with him an ancient secret which, if left unchecked, will destroy Morgan’s world. Pursued by a passionate Templar Knight and the target of the local vampire clans, an ancient power is awakened within her, unlike anything she’s ever known. Morgan must uncover the truth behind her mission and about herself, before the Darkness lurking inside swallows her whole.

The Sunwalker Saga reading list is HERE.

There are a couple of new Young Adults hitting the shelves, as well.  First off is the much anticipated (by me, anyways) Poison Princess, the first book of the Arcana Chronicles series by Kresley Cole.

Synopsis…

Poison Princess centers on 16-year-old Evangeline “Evie” Greene, a privileged teenager from Louisiana. When an apocalyptic event decimates her hometown, killing everyone she loves, Evie realizes the hallucinations she’d been having for the past year were actually visions of the future — and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophecy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of teens have been chosen to re-enact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side.

I loved the cover for this one right from the start.  Sarah Crossan‘s Breathe, the first book of the Breathe series, will be released tomorrow.

Synopsis…

Inhale. Exhale. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe . . .

The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.

ALINA
has been stealing for a long time. She’s a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she’s never been caught before. If she’s careful, it’ll be easy. If she’s careful.

QUINN
should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it’s also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn’t every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

BEA
wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they’d planned a trip together, the two of them, and she’d hoped he’d discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

The Breathe reading list is HERE.

And finally, this last one comes from Darynda Jones.  The popular author of the Charley Davidson series is branching out to young adult with the release of Death and the Girl Next Door.  It is the first book of the Darklight series.

Synopsis…

Things get turned upside down for sophomore Lorelei MacAlister when the Angel of Death starts high school in her small town. What she doesn’t know is that she has been slated to die. It’s simply her time. And Death has been sent to do the deed. But when he touches her, when he peers into her eyes and reaches into her heart, he realizes she is more than what he was led to believe, and he disobeys his orders. He brings her back from the brink of death when he was supposed to push her into it. Because of this, he gets trapped on this plane. And that’s when all hell breaks loose. Literally.

The Darklight reading list can be found HERE.

Ok.  Is everyone going to be as busy as me trying to cram in all of the new books this week?  I just got last week’s load, so I am in book horder heaven.  Or hell, depending on how you look at it.
