Nell’s Gossip 2/12/2017
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:
- One of our fave authors here at One Book Two is Kevin Hearne. He’s the author of the Iron Druid Chronicles. He’s releasing a new series on October 3, 2017 from Del Ray Books. The series is called Seven Kennings and it looks like a series that could easily be another favorite.
Title: A Plague of Giants
Author: Kevin Hearne
Series: Seven Kennings #1
Release date: October 3, 2017
Description: In the start of an enchanting new series, the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles creates an unforgettable fantasy world . . . one that is forever changed when an army of giants invades. The kingdom’s only hope? The discovery of a form of magic that will call the world’s wondrous beasts to fight by the side of humankind.
- I love the Demon Accords series. We are up to book 11 and though I am far behind, I’m pleased to note this series is still going strong. This new episode was released December 30, 2016, which shows I’m a little behind in my information retrieval. If recollections serves, Chris, the hero in the story is a little superhero-ish and his girlfriend (who could well be his wife now for as far as I am in the series, bad on me) is a Vampire hybrid princess. That’s what makes it worth reading.
Description: Book 11 of the Demon Accords. Las Vegas. Sin City. What happens in Vegas…could kill most of the human race. When all trails lead Chris, Tanya and their entire team to the desert gambling mecca, the stakes become the highest possible. Facing a hybrid demon werewolf, his death witch mother, undead strippers and pregnancy cravings, Chris must rely on his team like never before if he’s to have any chance at saving the race of man, not to mention a spot in preschool for his unborn kids.
- OOf, but Faith Hunter makes it difficult on us reader fans. She put out a teaser of the first 5 pages of Cold Reign. That’s the next Jane Yellowrock book that will be published on May 2, 2017. It’s so hard to wait!
Title: Cold Reign
Author: Faith Hunter
Series: Jane Yellowrock #11
Released: May 2, 2017
Description: Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most. Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official enforcer to Leo Pellisier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.
But there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.
Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless of cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…
- If you enjoy the new trend of book trailers (that’s like a movie trailer except for a book – which is bloody brilliant), you will salivate over The Witch’s Lair trailer by Lincoln Farish.
- Next on the Farish front, Junior Inquistor has made it to the ranks of audio books. I can hardly wait to hear Sebastian for myself. Click here for the Audible page.
- Are you impatient for the next Inquisitor book? Yeah, well, so am I. I do have some super secret information that I can pass on – not so secret, huh? Anyway, The German King’s Shade will be the title for the next Inquisitor book. If you want a glimpse, there is an excerpt at the end of Vampire of Rome, Inquisitor book #4. I haven’t a release date yet, but I’ll let you know when I hear.
- Lastly, and I cannot believe this is true and I nearly missed it: Farish released a free short story in the Inquisitor Series. Woot!!! It’s called The Goth Witch of Philly. I am already half through and I haven’t even finished this post. Sorry about that! 😉 You can find it on his website -click on the title and it will transport you there with lightning speed.
Title: The Goth Witch of Philly
Author: Lincoln Farish
Series: Inquisitor #2.5
Description: Sure waking up in a dumpster has its draw backs, but at least you woke up. One way to fight madness is to be a bit insane. Disguised as a bum, Brother Maurice travels to Philadelphia to investigate the reports of witchcraft, and finds himself trashed.
- I really need to re-read the Monster Hunter’s International series. Larry Correia does a fantastic job with a secret covert monster hunter group that has been fighting monsters for over 100 years. I remember the first book – it was a little over 450 pages but it was so totally awesome I couldn’t speak for a week.
Anyway, point of the story is: there is an anthology in the works.
Title: The Monster Hunter Files Anthology

- Lastly, I was surfing around on twitter yesterday and I found a tweet from Stephen Blackmoore. He says: Provided I don’t die any time soon, there will be at least 3 more Eric Carter books.
Please, Stephen, don’t die.
