I don’t really have much to mention, but there are a couple of little things I found on a recent scouting party, and I thought I might share.
- Ilona Andrews has finished writing the final Kate Daniels book, Magic Triumphs. They have been on a big push to get this one finished, and I am happy for them. But on the other hand, I am a bit bummed, too. I don’t believe that they are finished with the Kate Daniels world, but to see “final” in regards to a favorite series is always bitter-sweet. Although I am happy that they can concentrate on maybe more Hidden Legacy, or Innkeeper Chronicles. And I got the vibe a while back that they were plotting a new series, too. They have never written anything that I haven’t loved – nothing – so I am pretty much happy with whatever comes.
- Speaking of something new, I noticed that J.R. Ward is apparently starting up another contemporary series since her Bourbon King trilogy recently wrapped up. I haven’t seen much in the way of detail yet, only that it will focus on Firefighters. The first as-yet-unnamed book will be released on September 27th.
- And Gena Showalter also has something new in the works. Shadow and Ice is the first book of the adult Gods of War series, and it will be released on October 30th.
- Jennifer L. Armentrout will start a spin-off of her Lux series that focuses on Luc. The Darkest Star is the first book of the Origin series, and it too will be released on October 30th.
- And this next one is a bad news/good news situation. Chloe Neill has had to push back the release of Wild Hunger – but only by a month. Not too horrible, and the new release date is August 14th. The good news? She uploaded a small snippet from the prologue over on her Facebook page, which can be found HERE.
Have you heard any news on upcoming releases? Any changes or pushbacks or new series?
