More Blurby Goodness…

It was author page updating time, and in doing so I found a couple of blurbs for long-awaited books. Just a quick note…March 2016 is going to be one expensive reading month. Just saying.

This first one is for Anne Bishop‘s Marked in Flesh, which is due out on March 1st.

For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community…
 
Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…

We are counting down to the end of the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill, and the second last book will be called Midnight Marked. Look for it on Marh 1st, as well.

As the Chicagoland Vampires series continues, Merit and Ethan find themselves in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, where winning may require the ultimate sacrifice…

A vampire’s grudges don’t stay dead long…

Merit is one of Chicago’s most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn’t scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won’t give up until he owns the Windy City.

With his last plan thwarted, he’s more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House’s vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting vampire against vampire…

In this deadly game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are life or death—and winning might mean sacrificing everything…

Oooh, and can’t forget the next epic Patricia Briggs‘ book, Fire Touched. This one has a release date of March 8th.

Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.

Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?

There are a few other biggies coming out next March, but the blurbs have been out for a while. This past March was a huge month, too. Too much of a good thing, I think, since I would rather spread out the reading goodness. How excited are you for any of these upcoming releases?

      Yep, September usually packs a wallop, too. And I find January big, too, but at least most of the series I follow then are paperback releases.

    It is so odd how books I want seem to congregate in specific months and not others. With the exception of Shards of Hope, June has been a slow book moth for me, but July and particularly August are going to be insane.

    • kaleigha says:

      Yep, the too-much months are always surrounded by the not-enough months, where you are begging for a really good read. I would be happy with one biggie a month, but then I guess I don’t get a vote.

        Books don’t adjust releases the same way movies do to control the competition… probably because the Hardcover/Paperback releases aren’t as important as theater sales vs DVDs… people can buy all the hardcovers they want, but only see so many movies a week

  2. Iain says:

    I have a feeling these releases are gonna affect my ratings as they did last March… the existence of Vision in Silver and no 6-star rating left more 4-star rating books in comparison right after reading, which would have been 5-star any other week/month I think.
