TitleGrave Mercygrave-mercy
Author: Robin LaFevers
Series: His Fair Assassin #1
Description Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

pound-of-fleshTitle: Pound of Flesh
Author:  J.A. Cipriano and Conner Kressley
Series:  Half Demon Warlock #1
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: Junkyard Druidjunkyarddruid-2
Author: M.D. Massey
Series: Colin McCool #1
Description: A cursed druid, blackmailed by a faery queen to find a missing magic rock. Let’s just hope they don’t hack the druid off… for everyone’s sake.

Name’s Colin McCool. Folks call me the Junkyard Druid. I hate that name.

Despite my last name, I’m not “cool” like the other hunters in town. I don’t run an occult bookstore, I’ve never owned a Harley, and I didn’t inherit a family fortune passed down through generations of hunters before me.

And I kind of have this curse on me that’s messed up my life.

So, things have gone to hell since I was cursed. I live in a junkyard, my mentor Finn is a heroin addict, I’ve got the Cold Iron Circle breathing down my neck, and the local Fae Queen Maeve is blackmailing me into doing her dirty work.

Now I’m in way over my head trying to retrieve Maeve’s stolen magic rock, all while helping my friend Belladonna solve a series of murders that may or may not involve the local werewolves.

And did I mention that my girlfriend is a ghost?

If I can just get the Faery Queen’s tathlum back, and help Belladonna solve the murders…

Then I just might live long enough to finish my first year of college.

Title:  Working Stiff
Author: Rachel Caine
Series: Revivalist #1
Description:  Bryn Davis knows working at Fairview Mortuary isn’t the most glamorous career choice, but at least it offers stable employment–until she discovers her bosses using a drug that resurrects the clientele as part of an extortion racket. Now, Bryn faces being terminated–literally, and with extreme prejudice.

Wit the help of corporate double-agent Patrick McCallister, Bryn has a chance to take down the bigger problem–pharmaceutical company Pharmadene, which treats death as the ultimate corporate loyalty program. She’d better do it fast, before she becomes a zombie slave–a real working stiff. She’d be better off dead…

Title: The Outliers
Author: Kimberly McCreight
Series: The Outliers #1
Description: It all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help.

Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself.

This time it’s different, though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn’t feel right, but Wylie has no choice: she has to ignore her gut instinct and go with him.

But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous, fast. As Wylie and Jasper head farther and farther north into the dense woods of Maine, Wylie struggles to control her growing sense that something is really wrong. What isn’t Cassie telling them? And could finding her be only the beginning?

Invested Ivana’s nagging book is:

jackabyTitle:  Jackaby
Author:  William Ritter
Description:  “Miss Rook, I am not an occultist,” Jackaby said. “I have a gift that allows me to see truth where others see the illusion–and there are many illusions. All the world’s a stage, as they say, and I seem to have the only seat in the house with a view behind the curtain.”

Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary–including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain it’s a nonhuman creature, whose existence the police–with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane–deny.

Doctor Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre.

the-golden-spiderTitle:  The Golden Spider
Author: Anne Renwick
Description:  London papers scream of dirigible attacks, kraken swarms, and lung-clogging, sulfurous fogs. But a rash of gypsy murders barely rates mention.

Lady Amanda is tired of having both her intelligence and her work dismissed.

After blackmailing her way into medical school, she catches the eye of her anatomy professor from the moment she walks into his lecture hall. Is he interested in her? Or only her invention–a clockwork spider that can spin artificial nerves?

Lord Thornton, a prominent neurobiologist, has been betrayed.

Secret government technology has been stolen from his laboratory, and a foreign spy is attempting to perfect it via a grisly procedure… using gypsies as test subjects. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a beautiful–and brilliant–new student, even if her spider could heal a deteriorating personal injury.

Until her device is stolen and used in the latest murder.

Lord Thornton has no option but to bring her into his laboratory as well as the investigation where they must fight their growing, yet forbidden, attraction. Bodies accumulate and fragile bonds are tested as they race across London, trying to catch the spy before it’s too late.


Kat Mandu’s nagging book is: gracelingKat_Mandu_100

GracelingKristin Cashore, YA epic fantasy – A lot of times I see high fantasy books on the shelves and some of the blurbs say, “Something [other popular book] meets Graceling.” Meaning Graceling must be super cool to have that many people comparing other books to its premise. I have yet to read this one but since my high fantasy read along spree is coming up and it’s on the list, I’m ready to be wowed by all the great things I’ve heard about it.

TitleGraceling
AuthorKristin Cashore
DescriptionKatsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight – she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.

When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend.

She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace – or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away…

Title:  Black City Saintblack-city-saint
Author: Richard A. Knaak
Series: Black City Saint
Publisher: Pyr
Release Date: March 1, 2016

Description: For more than sixteen hundred years, Nick Medea has followed and guarded the Gate that keeps the mortal realm and that of Feirie separate, seeking in vain absolution for the fatal errors he made when he slew the dragon. All that while, he has tried and failed to keep the woman he loves from dying over and over.

Yet in the fifty years since the Night the Dragon Breathed over the city of Chicago, the Gate has not only remained fixed, but open to the trespasses of the Wyld, the darkest of the Feiriefolk. Not only does that mean an evil resurrected from Nick’s own past, but the reincarnation of his lost Cleolinda, a reincarnation destined once more to die.

Nick must turn inward to that which he distrusts the most: the Dragon, the beast he slew when he was still only Saint George. He must turn to the monster residing in him, now a part of him…but ever seeking escape.

The gang war brewing between Prohibition bootleggers may be the least of his concerns. If Nick cannot prevent an old evil from opening the way between realms…then not only might Chicago face a fate worse than the Great Fire, but so will the rest of the mortal realm.

Title:  Crackedcracked-by-eliza-crewe
Author:  Eliza Crewe
Series:  Soul Eaters
Publisher: Strange Chemistry
Release Date:  November 5, 2013
Description:  Meet Meda. She eats people.

Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters” around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in suits show up.

They can do what she can do. They’re like her. Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem? They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her ‘kind’ is.

Be careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and trying to keep one step ahead of a too-clever girl are bad enough. But the Hunger is gaining on her.

The more she learns, the worse it gets. And when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her destiny… she may finally give into it.

What books are nagging on us here at One Book Two.  Which ones do we want to get to, but are having a hard time finding the time to read?

Vagabond Vahn’s nagging TBR book…Once Broken Faith

Vagabond_Vahn_3-flip

Once Broken Faith: An October Daye Novel by Seanan McGuire. Still a few things keeping me from getting to it, even though it came out back on the 6th!  (Ivana says, “Me, too!”)

 


Ruby Lee’s nagging book…deadline

Ruby_Lee_100Deadline by Mira Grant which is the second book in the Newsflesh series. I was so devastated by the losses in the first book that I am not sure I am ready to stir those painful feelings.  During my many years of being a fan of the zombie genre, I have learned that no person is safe no matter what size of role they play in the story.  So it comes down to the fact that I really want to read this book but I’m a big chicken. That’s pretty much sums it up.


Invested Ivana’s nagging TBR book…devils-and-details

Invested_Ivana_100The second book in Devon Monk‘s Ordinary Magic, Devils and Details, came out at the end of August and I haven’t been able to get to it yet.  I really enjoyed the first book, Death and Relaxation, and the ending of Book 1 was pretty intriguing. So I’m looking forward to diving into Book 2 sometime soon!


Nervous Nellie’s nagging TBR book…

Nervous_Nellie_100lost-soulLost Soul by Adam J. Wright
Harbinger P.I. series

The cover intrigues me and the series name draws me in.  I’ve never read anything by this author, but this book has all the earmarks of something I will really love.

 


Kat Mandu’s nagging book is:

Kat_Mandu_100Morning Star (SciFi) by Pierce Brown – This is the third book in the Red Rising Morning star
trilogy, and well, “technically” it’s already out. However, as much as I’m a huge fan of this series, I’m also a bit OCD. I didn’t pick up Red Rising until it was already in paperback, so I have the first two in paperback and now I’m waiting on the third to release the same way.
