Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 10/22/17
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
- I am in the middle of listening to Death Mage by Brad Magnarella. Professor Croft is kind of half Indiana Jones, half Harry Dresden. He’s not searching for relics, though. He’s more about finding out who his father really is and avenging whomever killed his mother. Death Mage is working up to a major blowout. I’m hoping that this isn’t the end of Prof Croft’s series. I really enjoy him and his world. I do know, however, that there will be a new series that will feature Prof Croft as a supporting character. Author Magnarella has introduced me just recently. Here’s what I found out.
Cursed by a blind witch in a remote corner of Waristan, Special Ops Captain Jason Wolfe finds himself changing into a horrid creature of local legend: a lupine referred to in fearful whispers as Blue Wolf.
Faster, stronger, and more lethal, he’s the perfect soldier – but not for the U.S. military. To break the curse, Jason must lead a war between ancient tribal foes: blue werewolves and white dragons.
In a battle spanning from the icy peaks of Central Asia to the valleys of Manhattan, and with the help of a bookish wizard named Prof Croft, Jason will push himself to the breaking point. Because with the curse now spreading to his mind, he’s running out of time – and the stakes are everything.
Win and he returns home to a fiancé to whom he’s pledged a family and future.
Lose and he dies a blood-thirsty beast.
- Speaking about Prof Croft, the latest Prof Croft adventure is here! Also included is Yancy Lazarus’s first adventure called Strange Magic. The short novel Croft & Wesson and full length novel of Strange Magic is part of the just-released boxed set Eight in the Chamber, which features supernatural detective stories from seven other authors in the genre (plus a bonus eighth).The more astute among you might recognize the name Wesson, as in James Wesson, from Death Mage (Prof Croft, Book 4). That said, Croft & Wesson is a standalone that can be read independently of the prior books. Sort of your odd-couple wizard sleuths in a supernatural Wild West.
Title: Eight in the Chamber

Publisher’s Description: Orcs, vampires, rogue mages, and strange familiars… The night’s filled with beasts looking for kicks, who trod the urban landscape with cloven hoof or sharpened claw, keeping a yellow eye out for easy prey. But what’s a citizen to do when dark shadows lie heavy, spells become useless, and wands lose their charm?
They call on the heroes of Eight in the Chamber.
These hardboiled cops and investigators specialize in a preternatural kind of justice. They aren’t afraid to delve into dark magic or wield a cursed instrument to save the pure and innocent. They won’t quit until every dark deed is punished, and the scales of justice are balanced.
In Eight in the Chamber, a cadre of your favorite authors have banded together to bring you all the thrills of the urban supernatural, with a twist of sci-fi noir, in a collection of full length novels, spellbinding novellas, and enough short stories to choke a bag of holding. Buy your copy today, and let them take you on a thrill ride through the dark that you won’t forget!
- I don’t have a whole lot more news this week, so I’m going to share with you my book purchases. Normally, that would not include more than one, but I kind of went nuts this week.
