The Hollows returns with a prequel novel featuring the Kalamack family during the event that brought the species of supernatural world to light – right as they need to save it. I’m eager to read this and look! PRETTY COVER!!!
Trisk and her hated rival, Kalamack, have the same goal: save their species from extinction.
Death comes in the guise of hope when a genetically modified tomato created to feed the world combines with the government’s new tactical virus, giving it an unexpected host and a mode of transport. Plague takes the world, giving the paranormal species an uncomfortable choice to stay hidden and allow humanity to die, or to show themselves in a bid to save them.
Under accusations of scientific misconduct, Trisk and Kal flee across a plague torn United States to convince leaders of the major paranormal species to save their supposedly weaker kin, but not everyone thinks humanity should be saved.
Kal surreptitiously works against her as Trisk fights the prejudices of two societies to prove that not only does humanity have something to offer, but that long-accepted beliefs against women, dark magic, and humanity itself can turn to understanding; that when people are at their worst that the best show their true strength, and that love can hold the world together as a new balance is found.

I am a couple of books behind in this series, but I’m hoping to catch up by the time this is published. This is such a good series that I can’t resist preordering the book even though I’m only 1/2 way through the series.

Luna Lovebooks is waiting for…
I love Cassandra Clare’s writing! This particular set of short stories have been published in e-format before but I’ve been holding out for the hard copy since I have all her other works that way! Simon has been one of my favorite characters throughout the series because he is so adorkable! I can’t wait to see his journey to becoming a Shadow Hunter!
Title: Tales from the Shadow Hunter Academy
Author: Cassandra Clare
Published: November 15, 2016
Description: Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. But the events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows he was friends with Clary, and that he convinced the total goddess Isabelle Lightwood to go out with him…but he doesn’t know how. And when Clary and Isabelle look at him, expecting him to be a man he doesn’t remember…Simon can’t take it.
So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. His new self. Whomever this new Simon might be.
But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. And that differences—like being a former vampire—are greatly looked down upon. At least Simon is trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.
Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. These ten short stories give an epilogue to the Mortal Instruments series and provide glimpses of what’s in store in the Dark Artifices.

The Island of Glass, the third and final installment of the Guardian Trilogy by Nora Roberts, will be released on December 6th and I cannot wait. Roberts usually publishes a trilogy yearly so I wait until I have all three books before reading it. I was too excited and read the first book which was released November 3, 2015, which is over a year ago. I have been waiting (not patiently) for the final book. I guess it is an early Christmas Present to me.
Title: The Island of Glass
Author: Nora Roberts
To Be Published: December 6, 2016
Description: As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her…
An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love—and save them all…
