January New Releases!
OHHHHH! I love new release day! It gets so exciting when I get to spend time with favorite characters again!
OMG! OMG! I love, love, love this series!! This series is a series that cannot be missed. Charley Davidson has a sense of humor that I can totally appreciate. The writing is great and the characters (ahem….Reyes Alexander Farrow – whew! Is it hot in here?) are very well developed.
Title: The Dirt on Ninth Grave
Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Charley Davidson Book 09
Release Date: January 12
Publisher’s Description: In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she’s more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.
But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her—even from her new and trusted friends—the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn’t help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she’s lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.
Another series I can sink my teeth into! When we last left our heroes….well, I really shouldn’t tell because what if you didn’t read #4? If you didn’t read #4, or any of the others, GO GET THEM! You don’t want to miss this!!

Series: Stormwalker Book 05
Release date: January 20, 2016
Publisher’s Description: Janet discovers the master mage, Emmett Smith, on her trail when he announces his intent to steal Janet’s magic mirror. Janet already has her hands full trying to keep her sister Gabrielle under control as well as plan her upcoming wedding to Mick and taking care of the weird creatures that suddenly turn up at Barry’s biker bar.
When Janet is knocked out fighting the creatures, she wakes up seemingly in the past, after she and Mick had first met and traveled across country by motorcycle, alone and free. The dream seems so real that Janet begins to forget it isn’t.
The dreams call Janet back, each one more powerful than the last, threatening to tear her apart and away from Mick forever. Janet and her friends—Mick, Cassandra, Nash, Gabrielle, Coyote, and the dragons—must thwart this greatest of magics before it splits them into fragments and leaves the world vulnerable to the most evil of evils.
I am a serious fan of Atticus. It seems like his mouth gets him in trouble more often than not!!!
Author: Kevin Hearne
Series: Iron Druid Chronicles Book 08
Release Date: January 26
Publisher’s Description: This hilarious and action-packed urban fantasy series is set in a modern world in which all the gods of every pantheon are alive and well, as in American Gods; its hero is a smart-mouthed, buttkicking magician, like Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden. But it’s told in a smart, witty, unforgettable voice that’s all Kevin Hearne—a star in the fantasy world. This addictive and wildly imaginative series stars hero Atticus O’Sullivan: a handsome, tattooed Irishman who looks like a young rock star, but is in actuality a 2,000-year-old Druid with extraordinary magic powers. In Staked, Atticus has his final confrontation with the clan of vampires who have been bent on destryong him—including Leif, his former best friend and now enemy.
Publisher’s Description: It’s called Brimstone. And after the first few hits, you’ll see every supernatural beast sharing the sidewalk, train, or office with you. After that, you’ll start seeing the really scary stuff.
I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for the SPI. And the collateral damage caused by Brimstone is something I’d like to unsee: dead drug dealers missing their hearts—and souls. Because your local pusher doesn’t stand a chance against the new cartel muscling its way into New York. And since the drug can only be produced with magic and molten brimstone fresh from Hell, that means a rift to the underworld is open somewhere in the city.
And when—not if—the cartel loses control of it, well…
It’s going to be Hell on earth.
This series is another hit from Lisa Shearin. At time of posting, the author hasn’t finished the description of this story, but I get the feeling that this may be the ending of the series.
