    The books coming out in 2017

    I've tried googling it but was not really able to find anything about the most anticipated speculative fiction debuts in 2017. Can anyone point me in the direction of a blog or website where this might be discussed or, if not, does anyone know which debut novels are generating any buzz?

    The books coming out in 2017

    On Daniel Price's The Song of the Orphans, the follow-up to The Flight of the Silvers: Found here: http://danielprice.info/ You may also want to add the following titles to the first page: The Ember in the Ashes (The Book and The Sword Book 2) by Antoine Rouaud (Gollancz) UK Release Date - November 16, 2017 Amazon Link This is the sequel to our fabulous 2013 debut, THE PATH OF ANGER. Antoine Rouaud is a fresh voice in the genre, telling stories of revenge, grudging love, and the fall of an entire Empire as a result. This story is packed with flashbacks, revelations and story-changing concepts; a gripping fantasy noir thriller at heart, it's a must-have for fantasy readers. The City of Miracles (Divine Cities Book 3) by Robert Jackson Bennett (Jo Fletcher Books) UK Release Date - January 12, 2017 Amazon Link Sigrud je Harkvaldsson is back, and this time he's out for vengeance. Shara Komayd, once Prime Minister of Saypur, has been assassinated. News travels fast and far, even to a remote logging town somewhere northwest of Bulikov, where the silent, shaven-headed Dreyling worker 'Bjorn' picks up the newspaper and walks out. He is shocked and grieved and furious; he's been waiting thirteen years for Shara, his closest friend, to reach out to him - to tell him to come home. He's always believed she was running a long operation, that there would be a role for him at the right time. Now he has no one else in his life, and nothing to live for - except to find the people who did this. Sigrud wasn't there for the death of his daughter Signe, and he wasn't there when his old comrade Shara was murdered. Now Bjorn is dead and Sigrud is back. And he will find answers, for Shara, and for himself. He's made a promise . . . The Master (Masters & Mages Book 1) by Miles Cameron (Gollancz) US Release Date - February 16, 2017 Amazon Link Aranthur is a student. He showed a little magical talent, is studying at the local academy, and is nothing particularly special. Others are smarter. Others are more talented. Others are quicker to pick up techniques. But none of them are with him when he breaks his journey home for the holidays in an inn. None of them step in to help when a young woman is thrown off a passing stage coach into the deep snow at the side of the road. And none of them are drawn into a fight to protect her. One of the others might have realised she was manipulating him all along . . . The Thousand and One by Saldin Ahmed (Gollancz) UK Release Date - September 21, 2017 Amazon Link
  3. I thought the second book was pretty great.   Question for people that finished the book. Note, the question includes a spoiler.   [spoiler] I missed the significance of the last chapter reveal of Marius. I think he's a magelord. Am I wrong in assuming so? What was his significance; I can't remember from the first book. I did pick up that he was the mentor to the twin necromancers but other than that, I don't have a clue. [/spoiler]

    Andrzej Sapkowski II

    I'm half way through the Time of Contempt and I have never played the video games before. Can someone please explain to me what a Chosen One is? Thanks.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    Has anyone read Providence of Fire by Brian Staveley. I was underwhelmed by the first book in the series but it has good reviews on Goodreads...
  6. Any news on the audible release of Sword of the North? The non-audible version is like $100 something...

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Just started this novel. I hope we get to see that hillman use his axe.
  8. Personally, I'll pretty much take anything labeled "grimdark" over another farmer boy with a prophecy and a destiny to defeat the Dark Lord by going on a quest and reclaiming some Magical Object.
  9. Dammit, you can only download the audiobook off of Audible if you live in the UK! Why are UK publishers so much better on release dates?
  10. So, I'll take the non-answer as a "no" for the audiobook...
  11. Is there a reason I can't pre-order a physical copy yet? Also, any chance of an audiobook?

    [ADwD Spoilers] Updating the Citadel

    When is the FAQ section of the Citadel going to be updated? There seems to be many "forthcoming" sections.

    Glen Cooks The Black Company series

    I've read the first trilogy and I like it a lot. Are the second and third omnibuses good too? The Dread Empire takes place in the same universe, right? Is the Dread Empire good too?

    [ADwD Spoilers] Updating the Citadel

    The link works fine! :shocked: :stunned: This is amazing. What are the differences between the four slides and what do the different colors mean (white, yellow, grey, red)? Also, is this updated according to aDwD or just aFfC? Further, I'm forgetting if there is any mention of the Freys in the novellas. Granted, the genealogy is already severely complex, I can't imagine trying to add in anything that came before Walder...but it would be interesting to see. How did you go about making this? Did you keep track while reading or did you look up each individual Frey and their family members online? I guess this would be easier if there was a massive list of alive, dead, maybe dead, and unknown characters. Somehow, I doubt that there is. I know that there are other family trees out there, but to my knowledge there are none that track the fates of the characters included in them. Have you though about doing this type of thing for the other large houses (Targaryen, Baratheon, Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Arryn, Tully, Tyrell, Martell, Bolton, Manderly, Hightower, Umber, Karstark, Royce, Dayne, Yronwood, Harlaw, Redwyne, Fossoway, Mallister, Bracken, and Blackwood). Thats only 1...2...3...25 houses :blush: Hopefully those questions didn't completely overwhelm you. I would encourage others to use the link to access Tati's file. I have seen other family trees, but this one is unique and well done.
