This and That

Things have been quiet for the last little while, but you know that just means that everything will start happening all at once. I was cruising around and found a couple of tidbits to share…

  • Cassandra Clare‘s adult Magnus Bane trilogy will be called The Eldest Curses. The first book is called The Lost Book of the White, and it will be out next November.
  • The third book of Chloe Neill‘s Devil’s Isle series will be called The Hunt, and it will be out on September 26th.
  • Kelley Armstrong‘s last Cainsville book, Rituals, will be out late next year. I did manage to track down the official blurb, though…
Olivia Jones must make a choice.
Caught between two rival supernatural forces, Liv has been given a brief period in which to make her decision. Now that time has run out.
Whichever side she chooses, someone she loves will pay. Her lover, Ricky. Gabriel Walsh – the man she knows she cannot, must not love. Her parents – already trapped in prison.
And now there is a new, terrifying power rising – one that doesn’t distinguish between good and evil intentions. It feeds on chaos and destroys without mercy. Unless Liv acts fast, no one will survive.
In this gripping thriller, international bestselling author Kelley Armstrong brings the Cainsville series to a powerful, richly rewarding climax.
  • And it looks like there will be a full release from Kresley Cole‘s Dacians series after the upcoming Shadow’s Seduction novella. Shadow’s Kiss will out next November, but there isn’t any word yet on who it will be focused on. This one doesn’t seem to be a self-pubbed story, either.

So, that wraps things up for today. I hope to have the Dragon Kin character guide finished by the end of the year, and then get caught up on the ones I am behind on. Wht have you been up to?

    These days I almost get a laugh out of watching Cassandra Clare find new ways to extend the Mortal Instruments universe forever… and the names for the trilogies/series.

    Recently, I had fun perusing the Goodreads Choice awards for new books to try… had a lot of fun with the Chronicles of St. Mary’s series… about “madcap” historians mucking up history with their time machines in the name of research… and other plot reasons… listened to half the series so far in a little over a week… taking a little break from it now and listening to London Steampunk… which has reminded me a lot of Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas books

      Yeah, I used to get annoyed with people who griped about Cassandra Clare extending her world over and over again with new series. I thought that if you like it, shouldn’t you be happy it was continuing? Now I think that maybe it is time to just let it go. I owe all of the ones I mocked an apology.

        At least with Cassandra Clare you can quit whenever you feel like… every story is basically a self-contained trilogy in the same world… finish the trilogy and quit… so what if more books come out

        When is it safe to quit a never-ending narrative like Dark-Hunters or your Dark/Carpathian books?… each story builds from the previous and into the next in some way (I assume with them Feehan/Cole books, anyway)…

          That is what I am doing with Clare. I am going to finish up the newest trilogy, but I am skipping the rest. At least at this point. Even this last one hasn’t grabbed me like the first ones did. Like you say, the ongoing series are much, much harder to give up on. You always figure “just one more”.
