Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 8/4/19
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.
- Wow, summer is sure scooting by this year. I’ve kept up my end of the bargain so far – I read nearly 6 books a month – more if I can. It’s the best to be able to sit outside with the doggo and read…and read…and read. I have listened to a lot of audio books since I’ve been on the road with work. Right now, I’m listing to a book that caught my attention. It’s by Craig Johnson, part of the Walt Longmire series called Junkyard Dogs. I got hooked on Longmire when it was on TV. I never realized it was a book series. Boy, I was really not clued in.
Anyway, Walt is a bit out of my wheel house, but I’m about 75% finished and it’s really good. The narrator is super.
With that being said, here’s a book that is a little closer to my normal reading. The last book in this series was released on June 10, 2019. This new little gem will be released December 30, 2019.
Title: Blood and Blade
Author: Lauren Dane
Series: Goddess with a Blade #6
Release date: December 30, 2019
Description: It’s been only days since Rowan and her friends eliminated the immediate threat to magic users and Vampires, but they’re already back on the hunt. Rowan’s out for vengeance, and she’s never been more driven—or angry. But she’s up against a being stronger than any she’s ever fought. To bring it down she’ll need more than the powers the goddess Brigid gave her…
This time she’ll need her friends, too.
She knows her husband will always have her back. As an ancient Vampire and Scion of North America, Clive has more clout and dominance than almost anyone. Rowan’s small but trusted inner circle insist they’ll join her in the thick of the battle, even as she argues it’s too dangerous for them. She’s also got a new dog. Familiar. Whatever. Star is a magical being put in Rowan’s path to help and protect her.
The hunt for ancient evil takes Rowan and her team to London and back to Las Vegas, bringing with them an unexpected alliance. Fortified by their rage, grief and determination, Rowan and her friends will stop at nothing when they track their enemy to the high desert in a final, deadly showdown.
- I’m sad. Yep. Mournful, dismal, melancholy and bereaved. I few weeks back I found a super new series (to me) and now, I found out that the last book in the series has been released. Geez. Oh, well. I’ve still got books 2-6 and several shorts waiting for me. Here’s the low down on #6
Title: Devil’s Finale
Author: Percival Constantine
Series: Luther Cross #6
Release date: July 3, 2019
Description: End of the line…or end of the world?
My name’s Luther Cross, and by now you know my story. Half-human, half-demon, and Chicago’s sexiest paranormal investigator. Now I can add “recently returned from the dead” to my long list of accomplishments.
Except my resurrection was just the beginning. See, a year ago, I uncovered a plot by a rogue angel to launch the apocalypse ahead of schedule with the help of a supernatural child. And he’s got everything he needs to start the fireworks. Now it’s up to me to convince the leaders of Hell—who have never exactly liked me—to follow my lead and put a stop to this.
Some say I can’t avert armageddon and save the kid, but I’m determined to try. The question remains—just what will I have to sacrifice to save the world?
- Here’s a little thing that I found – if you are an audiobook lover, http://www.chirpbooks.com. This is a new service that lets you know limited time deals on audiobooks. This book has a very curious title and if you know anything about me, I am curious. Anyway, it’s on sale for .99 cents for the next 30 days. All the featured books are between 70% nearly 90% off. I’m gonna go for it and see how it goes. I’ll report.
Title: Stillborn Armadillos
Author: Nick Russell
Series: John Lee Quarrels book #1
Release date: November 20, 2018
Description: Life is already complicated enough for John Lee Quarrels, what with his estranged wife dropping in for unannounced sleepovers, her oversexed sister tempting him, his pot smoking ponytailed grandfather growing his own stash, his Elvis obsessed grandmother, and being caught smack dab in the middle of a power struggle between the Sheriff and Chief Deputy. But when a road construction crew unearths the skeletons of three murder victims, John Lee suddenly finds himself on the trail of a killer who may well have died long before the deputy was even born. And then a mysterious sniper begins shooting at deputies….
As sultry as a Florida back road in August, as mysterious as the South’s live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, and as deadly as a copperhead strike, New York Times best-selling author Nick Russell’s new John Lee Quarrels series will keep you listening late into the night.
