Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 6/4/2017
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
- First off, there is a free book out there just begging to be taken home. It’s free through today, so hurry and get yours. I’ve starting reading this series and I’m already nervous for the characters. I’m not anywhere close to the end, so there is time for the “big save” of the day yet.
Publisher’s Description: My name is Roy Morgan, and I’m not your average Atlanta cop. For one, most of them don’t have to kill people to stay alive. I do. It’s a half-demon thing. Yep, that’s right, half-demon. It’s awesome, especially since I’m half-warlock too, and those two sides don’t much get along.
Still, that and a buck will get you a candy bar. So it’s all good.
Or at least it was.
See, I had this dumb idea to stop a robbery in progress and have myself a snack. Turns out these weren’t your run of the mill robbers. No, these were demonic slavers, there to capture the district attorney and sell her off to the highest bidding demon in Hell.
Now if I want to stop them, I’m going to have to fight my way through a city full of hellfire-flinging, gun-toting, spell-weaving demons.
My name is Roy Morgan, and I think I’ll have seconds.

Title: The Trouble With the Twelfth Grave
Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Charley Davidson #12
Release date: October 31, 2017
Publisher’s Description: Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series.
Ever since Reyes escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley accidently trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.
Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes, can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?
- Here’s a addition to the Harkerverse world and it looks really good. This story is from the Shadow Council Archives. The same Shadow Council that Jo Henry, Quincy Harker, John Watson and others are members.
They have worked behind the scenes of society for centuries, protecting humans from threats beyond their understanding. They are The Shadow Council, and these Archives are the stories of their members and adventures throughout recorded history. From folk heroes to monsters out of darkest nightmare, the Shadow Council Archives explore the world beyond mundane understanding.
Vivienne du Lac and Nerissa Waldemar — a.k.a. la belle dame sans merci and the lamia — have been living among the elite of Tarrytown for quite some time, undetected but for the trail of goats in their wake (one must eat, after all). But just as their eccentricities begin to raise eyebrows, a dark evil arises, intent on murder. They meet a with a young woman named Christabel Crane and a group of bumbling cultists calling themselves the Circle of Iapetus, who beg for help combating the creature.
As they plunge deeper into the mysteries surrounding the New York elite, old flames rekindle, and old grudges, too. Vivienne and Nerissa agree to help fend off the darkness, but will spilled blood mean the end of their reform? And if not, at what cost?
- Craig Schaefer is working like a mad person getting edits done for the next Daniel Faust book that’s scheduled to be released next month. With all of his readers in mind, he’s reduced one of his series to .99 for this weekend only. See below.
- Also, keep in mind that Harmony Black‘s next adventure will be released in October AND he released this little teaser:
Then, in January, looks like I’ll be debuting that special and mysterious side project I’ve been working on for ages now. Still can’t talk about it just yet, but soon.
Publisher’s Description: Control the papacy, rule the world.
As Pope Benignus withers on his deathbed, conspiracies swirl across the empire. Bounty hunters and assassins flock to the frozen north, searching a city of thieves for an exiled politician while a storm of war and witchcraft brews on the horizon. As gambits play out, contenders die and the dominoes fall, a rare few will determine the course of history.
Livia Serafini. Pious. Zealous. Driven. With her sights set upon her father’s throne, Livia refuses to be a pawn of the conspirators that surround her. She’ll risk it all to rise above the tempest and lead her people to peace. Her pure-hearted ambitions may cost more than she knows: her reputation, her life, even her very soul.
Mari Renault. Honorable. Brutal. Lost. A war orphan from a land under a conqueror’s yoke, Mari is haunted by the horrors of her past and an impossible dream of knighthood. When she finds her dark savior, she’ll learn how dreams can come true…and how a ragged refugee girl can become a champion of the night.
The Owl. Brilliant. Ruthless. Sadistic. The witch and her disciples, on a mission of vengeance, are lured into the battle for control of the papacy. Despite all of her well-laid plans, the Owl soon finds herself walking a strange and twisted road. One that pits her against the most deadly foe of all — her own coven — and rekindles passion in her ice-sheathed heart.
Renata Nicci. Honest. Devoted. Daring. She’s just a dockside tavern barmaid. That’s what everyone tells her. That’s all anyone ever expected her to be. But when her lover Felix is swept into a battle between banking families and the machinations of a criminal kingpin, she’ll take up a blade and cross a war-ravaged land to save him.
Four women, four lives on a collision course. When the dust settles, their world will never be the same…if anyone is still alive to see it.
