Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt March 15, 2020

 

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.

Exciting new release coming up!  I love anthologies.  If you aren’t sure you’d like an author, the anthology is an awesome way to test them out.  Besides, that – these authors are awesome!

TitleFantastic Hope
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton and William McCaskey are joined by Kevin J. Anderson, Griffin Barber, Patricia Briggs, Larry Correia, Kacey Ezell, Monalisa Foster, Robert E. Hampson, John G. Hartness, Jonathan Maberry, L. E. Modesitt, Jr., Jessica Schlenker, Sharon Shinn, M. C. Sumner, Patrick M. Tracy, and Michael Z. Williamson in this collection.
Release date: April 7, 2020
Description: A child’s wish for her father comes true. The end of the world has never been so much fun. Conquering personal demons becomes all too real. It’s not always about winning; sometimes it’s about showing up for the fight. It’s about loving your life’s work, and jobs that make you question everything.

In this anthology, seventeen authors have woven together brand-new stories that speak to the darkness and despair that life brings while reminding us that good deeds, humor, love, sacrifice, dedication, and following our joy can ignite a light that burns so bright the darkness cannot last.

 

 

TitleVooDoo Shanghai
AuthorKristi Charish
SeriesKincaid Strange #3
Release date:  February 18, 2020
Description: The third and final installment in Kristi Charish’s thrilling urban fantasy series finds beloved heroine and voodoo practitioner Kincaid Strange shanghaied away from Seattle and pursuing the ghost of a serial killer in Portland.

Just when Kincaid Strange thinks her life is back on track and she’s finally put her time as a paranormal practitioner with the Seattle PD to rest, her ex (and Seattle cop) Aaron asks her for help with yet another strange and ominous case. Martin Dane, the White Picket Fence Serial Killer who terrorized West Coast families living the suburban American dream, appears to be back at it with a fresh murder in Portland. There’s only one problem: Dane has been dead for three weeks.
    

Kincaid can’t resist a paranormal mystery. Despite her misgivings, she agrees to examine the Portland crime scene. What she discovers is a place of supernatural power unlike anywhere she’s ever been–and the reason Aaron had been so tight-lipped about the case details. There’s already a voodoo practitioner on the scene: Liam Sinclair, a TV celebrity of questionable talent and dubious intent.
    

Kincaid wants nothing more than to finish the job and retreat to Seattle, but the deeper she looks, the less the murder adds up. When she uncovers a much more sinister mystery–missing ghosts, scores of them, whom no one is looking for–there’s no turning back.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt for March 8, 2020

 

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.

 

TitleNight Rune
Author: Brad Magnarella
SeriesProf Croft #8
Release date: March 2, 2020
Description: Where to turn when all roads lead to ruin?

Last night I barely escaped 1776 New York City – now I have to go back.

My teammates are trapped in a time catch. Worse, the demon master Malphas is building a gateway there, one that could trigger a full-blown apocalypse.

But returning will require new allies: a crabby goblin, a fae princess and former lover, and the demon-vampire Arnaud. Yeah, that guy. And we’re no longer facing one time catch, but several. All ruptured and on the verge of collapse.

Now a simple rescue has turned into a death-defying journey, one that’s pushing my spell casting and stamina to their limits.

But as hellfire lashes up and day dims to eternal night, I’m facing an even greater test…

Choosing between my faith in magic and my love for Vega.

Night Rune is the 8th novel in the 100,000+ selling urban fantasy series. If you like occult action, spell-crackling suspense, and moments of heart, heroism, and all-out laughter, you’ll love Prof Croft!

TitleBishop
AuthorTeresa Gabelman
SeriesThe Protectors #15
Release date:  February 26, 2020

Helping his new brothers of the VC keep all the Dragonfly Coven safe from the diabolical warlock, Orjyll, is Bishop’s number one priority. When that priority begins to shift and his focus is pulled away, his allegiance to the brotherhood is at risk.

Saving the world is something Bishop and the Warriors tirelessly do every day. But keeping witches safe is something new for Bishop, and if they fail and the Grail women fall to what the Fates bestowed on them many years ago, Hell on Earth could come swiftly.

To lose the epic battle between good and evil is not an option. Bishop has to find balance between his oath to the brotherhood and his heart. If not, life as he knows it will change forever.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt for March 1, 2020

 

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.

New Release!!!  Darynda Jones, as we all know and love as the creator of Charlie Davidson – actually 2 new releases plus the release of A Bad Day for Sunshine that will be released in April.

Title:  Betwixt
Author: Darynda Jones
Series: Betwixt and Between #1
Release date: February 18, 2020
Description: Divorced, desperate, and destitute, former restaurateur Defiance Dayne finds out she has been bequeathed a house by a complete stranger. She is surprised, to say the least, and her curiosity gets the better of her. She leaves her beloved Phoenix and heads to one of the most infamous towns in America: Salem, Massachusetts.

She’s only there to find out why a woman she’s never met would leave her a house. A veritable castle that has seen better days. She couldn’t possibly accept it, but the lawyer assigned to the case practically begs her to take it off her hands, mostly because she’s scared of it. The house. The inanimate structure that, as far as Dephne can tell, has never hurt a fly.

Though it does come with some baggage. A pesky neighbor who wants her gone. A scruffy cat who’s a bit of a jerk. And a handyman bathed ink who could moonlight as a supermodel for GQ.

She decides to give it three days, and not because of the model. She feels at home in Salem. Safe. But even that comes to a screeching halt when people begin knocking on her door day and night, begging for her help to locate their lost objects.

Come to find out, they think she’s a witch. And after a few mysterious mishaps, Dephne is beginning to wonder if they’re right.

 

**This is a freebie.  Go to Goodreads and to the book (link below on the title) and get it from bookfunnel.

Title:  A Lovely Drop
Author:  Darynda Jones
Series:  The NeverNeath #2
Release date:  January 2020
Description: A woman who claims to do the impossible…

Andrea Grace comes from a long line of women who can do the impossible: They can eavesdrop on the past. But ever since her mother’s suspicious death, Andrea has led a half-life, guarding herself from those who would kill to get their hands on her. From heads of states to the most violent criminals craving what she has to offer, every drop she makes puts her at risk.

But one fateful night, Andrea decides to anonymously help authorities solve a murder, a particularly horrendous one, and she gets a taste of what it feels like to use her powers for good. And she’s hooked. She continues solving crimes with no one the wiser and does so for years until one single mistake gets her caught. And what does she do to get out of the bind she finds herself in? She tells the ludicrous, inconceivable truth.

…meets a man who believes her.

Special Agent Sebastian Strand is almost desperate enough to believe the girl’s claim that she can see through the veil of time. Almost. But when he tests the defiant redhead and discovers her gift seems as real as the resentment she wears like a bulletproof vest, he asks for her help to stop a terrorist.

Now, the only element Andrea’s been able to control her whole life is the only thing she needs more of as she races against time with an FBI agent hell-bent on saving the world. But will she be too late to save the embittered man’s life? Or will she lose her own life, not to mention her heart, before time runs out?

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 2/22/2020

 

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.

A couple of Sundays ago, I talked about Ken Lange’s books “where science fiction and myth collide” and it got me thinking about how many other series out there have I missed because of my insistence to stay in a certain genre.  I found this series and it looks really good.  It’s another series that plays in the blur the lines of urban fantasy and science fiction.  I haven’t read these books, but they look and sound pretty awesome.

Kathleen McClure writes The Fortune Chronicle series.  The protagonist is Colonel Gideon Quinn and… well… read the description for yourself.  Also, if you go to Kathleen McClure’s website, you will see that she’s willing to give this first book away free.  I’m giving it a try because free is free and I just might be broadening my horizons.

Title:  Orphan, Dodger, Soldier, Spy
formally known as Reversal of Fortune: The Ducati Op

Author: Kathleen McClure
Series: The Fortune Chronicles #0
Release date: October 21, 2016
Description: On the planet Fortune tech is low, tensions high, and secrets can get you killed.

Colonel Gideon Quinn and his 12th company are on a mission behind the lines, under orders to steal the plans for a new and dangerous weapon being developed by the Midasian military.

But the mission soon goes swarm, and Gideon is left drawing enemy fire so his team can get the stolen intelligence to safety.

Now he’s trapped in the enemy’s city, and faced with a deadly and cruel foe who will do anything, to anyone, in order to achieve his ends.

Book #1 in Kathleen McClure’s Gideon Quinn’s Adventures is called Soldier of Fortune.  I’m thinking I might have to have WiFi where ever I go because I think I’ll have to download this book right away after reading the prequel.

Title:  Soldier of Fortune: A Gideon Quinn Adventure
Author: Kathleen McClure
Series: The Fortune Chronicles #1
Release date: December 23, 2015
Description: On the planet of Fortune, tech is low, tensions are high and heroes as unlikely as they come.

Wrongly convicted of treason, Gideon Quinn spent six years harvesting crystal under the killing suns of the Morton Barrens. When a general of the Corps arrives with an offer of freedom and the chance to clear his name, Gideon doesn’t have to think twice.

With his pet draco Elvis on his shoulder, Gideon takes ‘ship for Nike City on a quest for justice (or, failing that, revenge). What he finds is a dodger named Mia, a city steeped in corruption, and a menace at the heart of the Corps which could bring Fortune’s new and fragile peace to an explosive end.

And that’s just his first night in town

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 1/26/2020

 

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.

I’m not a normal one to go out looking for science fiction.  Science Fiction to me is outer planets, aliens, and stuff like that.  That’s not to say that I don’t love Star Trek and Star Wars but that’s pretty much where it ends.  With an exception…

Ken Lange is an exception because I got hooked on what I thought was Urban Fantasy but It wasn’t long until the sci fi element came out.  He labels his books “Where Science Fiction and Myth Collide”.  You really should go to his website just to look at it.  The graphics are amazing.  If the book covers and that website doesn’t intrigue you enough to give his characters a try then read the descriptions of the books.  When you poke around on that website…because, well, who wouldn’t want to…you will find under the series, under Plague Bearer link, Ken is willing to give you a free book to try out his writing.  The story is called:

Title:  Cursed Ones, A Vampire Tale
Author:  Ken Lange
Series:  Nine Realms Saga
Description: Em, an explorer obsessed with the Plague Bearer, has stumbled his way into a sacred space on a long-dead world. Searching the ruins, he awakens the Professor, a powerful AI. She served the last vampire king by guiding the recruits of his cult. Slowly, she begins to unveil a past better left forgotten. Will Em discover his life’s ambition or succumb to the Professor, becoming her newest recruit?

 

Ken has also just released a new book that starts the Plague Bearer series called Dawning.  It’s an OMG-I can’t wait to start this book- kind of description that you’ll read below.

Title:  Dawning
Author:  Ken Lange
Series:  Plague Bearer #1, Nine Realms Saga
Release date: January 14, 2020
Description: It’s a story as old as time: Cain and Abel, Adam and Eve. A family. A murder. A reckoning. Good and evil personified.

You may think you know the story, but you’d be wrong.

After thousands of years, Cain awakens to find that the world has gone on without him. In his slumber humans and people of power have stopped being afraid of—well anything. Beyond that, they’ve become cruel for cruelty’s sake, fascinated with their ability to spread death through famine, war, and even plagues.

In their minds, they have no equal.

They’re wrong.

Thanks to the Norns, his brother’s treachery, his sadistic stepmother, and abusive father, Cain has been out of the loop far too long.

But that’s about to change.

Now he must reconcile his past with his present and complete a near-impossible task to find the peace he’s sought for so long. Before that can be a reality, he’ll need to walk the fine line between monster and man; too much of one and not the other will release a plague upon the world. And there will be blood. Lots of it.

Can he fight his baser nature long enough to do what needs to be done, or will fate get the better of him in the end?
