Nell’s Gossip and Sunday Book Hunt 1/22/2017
Welcome to One Book Two. I love gossip and what gossip is any better than book or author gossip? Normally, I’m not one to spread rumors, so be sure you listen close the first time.
This Weeks Gossip:
OMG, OMG, OMG! Darynda Jones is thisclose to releasing the next Charley Davidson. As you already know, 11th Grave in Moonlight is the title of the next book scheduled for January 24, 2017. That’s in just a couple of days!! Woot! Anyway, 11th Grave is much anticipated around the One Book Two offices and the review will be released February 6, 2017. Why so late? Well, we have to fully savor The Curse of the Tenth Grave all over again before we read the next. You know how it goes.
One Book Two reviews:
I’m fairly sure I’ve mentioned Soren Chase before. If not, please check out Rob Blackwell‘s protagonist in the Soren Chase series. Blackwell’s next book, The Woman in the White Mask releases January 28, 2017. I’m excited because this is an awesome series and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Book #1, The Forest of Forever and Book #2, The Pretender, are both free on kindle unlimited for a binge read before #3 comes out.
I’ve been scouting new-to-me authors lately. I’ve found one that is releasing a new series on February 14, 2017. The series is called The Paradox Files and Kylee Paradox is a siren. I’ve only read about sirens in one other tale, so this will be two new adventures for me. A new series and a new creature.
Kylee Paradox never expected to be a protector of humankind, but when hell’s portals open and let loose the creatures of the underworld, she can’t see any other way.
Armed with an ultimatum, Kylee has no choice but to embrace her new position as bounty hunter of the damned. Sending these monsters back to purgatory becomes her life’s mission.
The only glitches in an otherwise noble pursuit are those who hold her fate in their hands. They forbid her from using her deadly siren song to lure the beasts back to the pit.
If she harms even a single innocent soul in her quest, Kylee herself will become one of the hunted.
Kevin Hearne released the cover for Besieged, a collection of short stories in the Iron Druid Chronicles series. This is nine stories all wrapped in one book with a bow, but that’s not the real reason I’m featuring this book. Look at the cover. Is it not AWESOME? It’s being released July 11, 2017.
Also being released on August 1, 2017 is Urban Enemies. It’s an anthology of urban fantasy all-stars featuring stories told by the villains! That’s a twist from favorite authors that I won’t want to miss.
Title: Urban Enemies
Authors: Jim Butcher (the Dresden Files), Kelley Armstrong (the Cainsville and Otherworld series), Seanan McGuire (October Daye), Kevin Hearne (The Iron Druid Chronicles), Jonathan Maberry (Joe Ledger), Lilith Saintcrow (Jill Kismet), Carrie Vaughn (Kitty Norville), Joseph Nassise (Templar Chronicles), Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress, Calliope Reaper series), Jaye Wells (Sabina Kane), C.E. Murphy (Walker Papers), Steven Savile (Ogmios), Caitlin Kittredge (the Hellhound Chronicles and the Black London series), Jeffrey Somers (The Ustari Cycle), Sam Witt (Pitchfork County), Craig Schaefer (Daniel Faust)
Description: Villains have all the fun—everyone knows that—and this anthology takes you on a wild ride through the dark side! The top villains from sixteen urban fantasy series get their own stories—including the baddies of New York Times bestselling authors Kelley Armstrong, Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, and Seanan McGuire.
For every hero trying to save the world, there’s a villain trying to tear it all down.
In this can’t-miss anthology edited by Joseph Nassise (The Templar Chronicles), you get to plot world domination with the best of the evildoers we love to hate! This outstanding collection brings you stories told from the villain’s point of view, imparting a fresh and unique take on the evil masterminds, wicked witches, and infernal personalities that skulk in the pages of today’s most popular series.
On the J.P. Sloan front, he has most assuredly NOT fallen off the face of the Earth as I may have indicated in a prior post. 🙂 I have received news (beyond the fact of his new release of The Curse Mandate was released December 18, 2016 AND One Book Two’s review will go live on January 31, 2017), the cover of The Curse Merchant received a new cover and whoa, baby. That cover is hot!
Also, Sloan’s news doesn’t stop there. The Dark Interest, which is Dark Choir series #4 book, has a contract with the publisher and a tentative release date of January 2018! Am I finished? No! There’s more! There is a prequel to The Curse Merchant called Bait and Witch which was released in Chronology anthology that I didn’t know was out there! There will also be another short story called Fall House released January 31, 2017 (not Dark Choir related) by J.P. Sloan in the anthology called Darkscapes.
