Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 1/24/21

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.

  • Well, the cover is released on Jane Yellowrock #14.  The date isn’t set in stone and the description isn’t ready, but the cover art is awesome.  This has to be one of my most favorite series.

TitleTrue Dead
AuthorFaith Hunter
SeriesJane Yellowrock #14
Release date: July or August 2021
Description: no description available yet

  • So, since that last book is just a teaser, check out this one that I found as I was jumping from site to site.  I’ve never tried this author, but the description looks really tempting!

TitleHellishly Ever After
AuthorNadine Mutas
Series: Infernal Covenant #1
Release date:  December 24, 2020
DescriptionEver held a seance and accidentally trapped a demon into marriage? No takers? Just me? Crap.
Marriage is my idea of hell, at least until the day an unfairly hot demon shows up in my apartment and drags me to actual Hell—as his wife. I’d honestly rather have a root canal without sedation than marry anyone, least of all a surly—even if damnably attractive—demon, but I’m bound to the contract stupid teenage Me made with Azazel when I accidentally summoned and trapped him into marriage, to be consummated if I were still single at twenty-five.
I’d forgotten all about it.
He hasn’t.
And now he’s here to claim me.
Neither of us is thrilled about this marriage-of-inconvenience, but what I hate even more than the idea of being married…is being ignored. So when Azazel intends to simply park me out of sight and mind at the other end of his estate in Hell, I make it my newly eternal life’s mission to be as much of a real inconvenience for him as possible.
It’s all fun and games, until I find a soul that shouldn’t be in Hell, stumble smack-dab into the middle of a demon family feud…and the banter between me and Azazel turns so hot it might consume me.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 1.3.21

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.

Let’s start the year with comedy.  Faith Hunter and several contemporaries have put this book together that takes place in the land of Jane Yellowrock.  Anything Jane Yellowrock is golden, so I’m pretty hyped about this new release.


Title
: Dirty Deeds
AuthorFaith Hunter, Diana Pharaoh Francis ,Devon Monk , and R.J. Blain
Release date: January 12, 2021
Description: Venture into a thrilling spinoff tale from the world of Jane Yellowrock, join vacationing gods in what appears to be a quiet, ordinary town, visit a supernatural hotel where the bedbugs could very well eat you, and dive into the zany, deadly world of the Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) series.

WHOO HOO!  A new Harbinger P.I. !

Title:  Grave Night
Author:  Adam Wright
Series:  Harbinger P.I. #10
Release date:  January 26, 2021
Description: If you can keep your cool when everyone else is losing theirs…maybe you don’t realize how bad the situation is

Rekhmire the Destroyer wants to annihilate the world (that’s what destroyers do) and he isn’t going to stop until he’s achieved his stretch goal of making everyone a part of his undead army.

Not on my watch. It’s time to send this walking piece of leather back to the tomb he crawled out of. But how am I supposed to do that when he’s immune to all magic and weapons?

A Harbinger’s gotta do what a Harbinger’s gotta do.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 8/23/20

 

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.

Not much going on in my book world this week.  There are a couple of new releases set for Tuesday.  One I covered last week and this one from Faith Hunter.

Title:  Junkyard Cats
Author: Faith Hunter
Release date: audio released January 2020, kindle released August 25, 2020
Description: From the author of the best-selling Jane Yellowrock and Soulwood series comes a tough new heroine who is far more than she seems. Junkyard Cats is the first in a new novella series.

After the Final War, after the appearance of the Bug aliens and their enforced peace, Shining Smith is still alive, still doing business from the old scrapyard bequeathed to her by her father. But Shining is now something more than human. And the scrapyard is no longer just a scrapyard, but a place full of secrets that she has guarded for years.

This life she has built, while empty, is predictable and safe. Until the only friend left from her previous life shows up, dead, in the back of a scrapped Tesla warplane. Clutched in her cold fingers is a note to Shining—warning her of a coming attack.

With dread, Shining realizes: Someone knows who she is. Someone knows what she is guarding. Will she be able to protect the scrapyard? Will she even survive? Or will Shining have to destroy everything she loves to keep her secrets out of the wrong hands? 

  • I’m so excited for this new book.  The new Eve and Roarke book is delving into more of Roarke’s past and this time the TEAM is invited.  This is going to be good!!  We might even get to visit the aunt and cousins!!  Woot!

Title:  Shadows In Death
Author:  J.D. Robb
Series:  In Death #51
Release date:  September 8, 2020
Description: Lt. Eve Dallas is about to walk into the shadows of her husband’s dangerous past.

As it often did since he’d married a cop, murder interrupted more pleasant activities. Then again, Roarke supposed, the woman lying in a pool of her own blood a few steps inside the arch in Washington Square Park had a heftier complaint.

When a night out at the theatre is interrupted by the murder of a young woman in Washington Square Park, it seems like an ordinary case for Detective Eve Dallas and her team. But when Roarke spots a shadow from his past in the crowd, Eve realises that this case is far from business as usual.

Eve has two complex cases on her hands – the shocking murder of this wealthy young mother and tracking down the shadow before he can strike again, this time much closer to home. Eve is well used to being the hunter, but how will she cope when the tables are turned? As Eve and the team follow leads to Roarke’s hometown in Ireland, the race is on to stop the shadow making his next move . . .

Shattered Bonds by Faith Hunter

Jane is sick.  Everything is in flux.  People are missing.  She can barely sit up, how on earth will she be able to help?

 

Title: Shattered Bonds
Author:  Faith Hunter
Series:  Jane Yellowrock #13
Publish Date:  October 29, 2019
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Source: NetGalley

Publisher’s Description:  Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker, and vampire killer-for-hire, but her last battle with an ancient arcane enemy has brought her low. She seeks retreat in the Appalachian Mountains to grieve the loss of her friends, and to heal–or to die–from the disease brought on by her magic.

But malevolent elements in the paranormal community still seek to destroy Jane, and the younger Son of Darkness stalks her, even into the safety of the hills. With nowhere to run and her body failing, the rogue-vampire hunter and her inner Beast must discover a way to defeat this new threat, and find a form that gives her a chance to fight another day.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

Yes, I did it.  I don’t regret it.  Was it fun? Dang skippy.

I stayed home from work yesterday and read Faith Hunter’s new release, Shattered Bonds.  It was great.  I don’t mean ”great” as a boring old adjective.  I mean ”great” as a super high flying, marvelously fantastic, descriptor to an awesome book.  Seriously.

To forewarn you, Jane Yellowrock #13 is the second to last book in the series.  There is no sex described but there is violence and bloodshed.  You know, typical Jane Yellowrock.  There is no swearing because, well, Jane doesn’t roll that way. One last warning: if you or a loved one are going through cancer treatments, this may not be the best escape for you. Then again, maybe it would as Jane kicks it’s butt.

I love Jane Yellowrock and Bruiser.  This story has them front and center along with the rest of the family.  It is a fabulous tale of family supporting family through everything.  I read this story in one sitting.  To clarify, it was an all day sitting.  The story, as all Jane Yellowrock stories, brought the world In which Jane lives into vivid pictures in my head.  I cannot reccommend this series enough.

Jane is sick. Very, very sick. She can put off her sickness by remaining in Beast form, but it’s not ideal.  Her family is trying every avenue they can in order to find her a cure.  Sometimes though, you just have to do it yourself.  There are wars brewing.  The vacuum Leo and Titus left is huge.  Jane was supposed to fill that void, but she didn’t. She chose to fight the tumor that was growing and taking her health and vitality. Until Edmund Hartley goes missing…and Jane finds out.

This book is different than the rest.  It’s got it’s violence, sure, but not as I’m used to.  Jane depended on her family a lot more.  It was serious teamwork that made things work.  Sure, there were a few nods to Leo and how Jane learned from him the art of deal making.  When Jane came to NoLA, she thought she knew what she was about. These past 10 years have seen her grow, change and then grow some more. This story reflected a lot on who Jane is now and where she came from.  How her past deeds, good or bad, has impacted her, Beast and their soul home.  As always this was a joy to read and I’ll be anxiously awaiting the final installment.  It makes me sad to say that, but all good things must come to an end.  Oh, and I hesitate to say this, but I do miss Leo. Dang fangheads.

 

Our reviews in this series…

Other recommendations…

…you might try the  Soulwood series. Takes place in the same time and almost same place as Jane Yellowrock series.

I received an ARC or review copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.
