New Release Dates…

I have been pretty steadily adding titles to the New Release pages lately, rather than making one monster update every month or so, but this week there were quite a few notable pre-order links that whoed up on Amazon.

  • Sparrow Hill Road, which is the first book of Seanan McGuire‘s upcoming Ghost Stories series, will be released on May 6th.
  • Charlaine Harris will start a new series next year that is a little less supernatural in flavor than Sookie Stackhouse, but still veers towards the paranormal. The new series will be called Midnight, Texas, and the first book will be called Midnight Crossroad. Look for it on May 6th.
  • The 4th book of M.J. Scott‘s Half Light City series, Fire Kin, will be released on May 6th.
  • The next rumored Meredith Gentry book from Laurell K. Hamilton, A Shiver of Light, now has a release date. It is due out on June 3rd.
  • It looks like Jess Haines will be releasing another H&W Investigations book. Enslaved by the Others is due out on July 1st.
  • Ilona Andrews revealed that the cover for Magic Breaks will be made public on October 31st, and now Amazon has the preorder up with the date listed as July 29th.
  • Kat Richardson‘s next Greywalker book, Revenant, will be released on August 5th.
  • Black Ice is the title of the second Mist book from Susan Krinard. It is due out on August 12th.
  • Shield of Winter from Nalini Singh, which will feature Vasic, will be released on June 3rd.
  • August 5th is the release date for Chloe Neill‘s next Chicagoland Vampires book, Blood Games.
  • Fans of Victoria Scott‘s Dante Walker series will be glad to know that book three is in the works. The Warrior is due out on May 6th.
  • The fifth and final book from Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s Lux series, Opposition, will be out on August 5th.
  • The Immortal Crown is the title of Richelle Mead‘s second Age of X book, and it will be released on May 29th.

Which of these are you most excited by? Shield of Winter is at the top of my list, along with Blood Games and Opposition (even though I hate to see the Lux series end). Magic Breaks in hardcover is a huge one for me, and I might even try out Charlaine Harris’ new one, too.


This and That…

newsAs always, in the process of updating the new release pages, I found a few more books that are on the horizon.

  • The second book of Coreene Callahan‘s new Knight Avenged series has been pushed way back to April 8th of next year.
  • November 5th will see the next Bound by Magick book from Lauren Dane, called Burning Wild.
  • November 5th is also the date for a Thea Harrison Elder Races book, a Meljean Brook Iron Seas book, and Nalini Singh‘s next Guild Hunter book (featuring Raphael and Elena).  All have titles TBA.
  • Author Lauren Kate‘s Fallen series (supposedly being optioned for a movie) is finished, so it looks like she is turning her attention to a new series, called Teardrop.  The first book, also called Teardrop, will be hitting the shelves on October 22nd.
  • October 1st is the release date for Caris Roane‘s next Ascension novel, Born in Chains.
  • Rather than info, this is more like lack of info.  Christine Feehan was recently asked what she would be working on next, and she said that after the long delayed Leopard’s Prey she was in fact without a contract.  She was not sure what would be coming, or when we would get it.  If I remember correctly, this same situation came up last year with Ms. Feehan, which just seems so strange to me.
  • The next H&W Investigations book from Jess Haines, Forsaken by the Others, will be released on July 30th.
  • Hannah Jayne‘s next Underworld Detection Agency novel, Under a Spell, will be out on August 13th.
  • To Kiss a Dragon is the title of the next G.A. Aiken Dragon Kin book, and it is scheduled for release on October 1st.  No clue who this one is about, and if ever there was a series that needed a character guide, this is it.
  • The pre-order links are up for Keri Arthur‘s 6th Dark Angels book, Darkness Splintered.  It will be out on November 5th.
  • A couple of weeks ago, word came out that Devon Monk was starting an Allie Beckstrom spin-off series called Broken Magic.  Well, the pre-order links for the first book, Hell Bent, are up now.  It is due out on November 5th.
  • October 1st is the release date for the next Cassie Palmer book from author Karen Chance, called Tempt the Stars.

Anything there you are looking forward to, or are you giving most of them a pass?  It looks like there is a ton coming out on November 5th, for some odd reason, so might have to save up for that weeks’ order.

Cover Lover – 12 New Titles

Many thanks to All Things Urban Fantasy, from where I nabbed many of these covers.

Well, the first one is from Rachel Vincent, called Blood Bound.  It is the first book in her new Unbound series, due out on August 23rd.

The second one is called Code of the Wolf, from author Susan Krinard.  It is from her 18th Century Werewolf series, and should be available on July 19th.

Hm, well.  The only author I follow in this anthology is Alexandra Ivy, and since her entry is a Guardians of Eternity short, I will be grabbing it for sure.  The Real Werewives of Vampire County also features Angie Fox, Jess Haines and Tami Dane, and should be out on October 25th.

The Hunter is the first book in Theresa Meyers‘ The Legend Chronicles.  Looks like a Cowboy Steampunk vibe going on.  Look for it on November 1st.

Next up is Devilishly Hot.  It is the new book from Kathy Love, due out on October 25th.  It doesn’t appear to be part of a series, but rather stand alone.

This one stands out with all of the vivid colors.  Siren’s Desire is the third book from the Dark Tides series from Devyn Quinn, and will be released on February 7th, 2012.

The cover for Barb Hendee‘s next one is out.  In Memories We Fear is the release from her Vampire Memories series, and should be available on October 4th.

Now, I know this one is YA, but I find the covers pretty.  The title and cover for the third book in Chloe Neill’s Dark Elite series have been released.  Charmfall is due early next year.

Jessica Sims will have a new series starting on October 25th with the release of Beauty Dates the Beast.  It is book 1 of her Midnight Liasons series.

Seems like there are a ton of new series starting up, and this one is no exception.  From Zoe Archer comes The Hellraisers.  Book one, Devil’s Kiss, is due out on December 6th.

Another new kid on the block is from Amanda Bonilla and her debut book, Shaedes of Gray.  It is part of her upcoming Shaede’s Assassin series, and will be on the shelves on December 6th.
