New Series Alerts…

For some reason, I had it in my tiny brain that this week was full of new adult series starting up. Not sure why, since in fact there isn’t any at all. But, there are three new young adult series to look forward to, so it isn’t a total loss. Claudia Gray‘s first Firebird book comes out this week, and it is called A Thousand Pieces of You.

a thousand pieces of youSynopsis…

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.

Now, this next one is the most annoying one to type out, mainly because I can never remember either the series name or how to spell it. Tonya Kuper‘s Anomaly is the first book of the Schrodinger’s Consortium series. Try spelling that one fast.

The world is not what it seems. What the general population thinks is reality, is an illusion. The forefathers of quantum physics, Shrodinger & Heisenberg, were on to something. A small percentage of people can create reality simply through the act of observation.

Josie Harper doesn’t believe it at first either. But then weird things happen – events she can’t explain or ignore.

When Reid Wentworth rides into town with his sexy smile and smart-ass attitude, talking of Anomalies and Pushing, Josie wants to push him right out of her life. But Reid’s training stints show Josie how right he is – and how much she needs him…in so many ways.

And now, their secret race in on the verge of civil war. Josie has to make some tough choices. Some of them could cost her life, some could cost all of humanity’s.

And the final one for this week comes from Juliet Marillier. Dreamer’s Pool is the first book of her new Blackthorn and Grim series.

dreamer's poolSynopsis…

In exchange for help escaping her long and wrongful imprisonment, embittered magical healer Blackthorn has vowed to set aside her bid for vengeance against the man who destroyed all that she once held dear. Followed by a former prison mate, a silent hulk of a man named Grim, she travels north to Dalriada. There she’ll live on the fringe of a mysterious forest, duty bound for seven years to assist anyone who asks for her help.

Oran, crown prince of Dalriada, has waited anxiously for the arrival of his future bride, Lady Flidais. He knows her only from a portrait and sweetly poetic correspondence that have convinced him Flidais is his destined true love. But Oran discovers letters can lie. For although his intended exactly resembles her portrait, her brutality upon arrival proves she is nothing like the sensitive woman of the letters.

With the strategic marriage imminent, Oran sees no way out of his dilemma. Word has spread that Blackthorn possesses a remarkable gift for solving knotty problems, so the prince asks her for help. To save Oran from his treacherous nuptials, Blackthorn and Grim will need all their resources: courage, ingenuity, leaps of deduction, and more than a little magic.

I might pick up A Thousand Pieces of You, but other than that it looks like I am getting off easy this week. Anything new (or new to you) for this week?
