The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere(goodreads?) That the numbers in the title of each book indicate where they take place chronologically. Now, I'm not sure if this holds up, cause I'm pretty sure two serpents rise is after three parts dead, but its a neat idea.

B&N's website is notoriously bad.  

In what way?  In my experience, the B&N website is quite reliable when it comes listing the in-store availability.  Not that isn't wrong on occasion when it has inventory in the thousands, but still.

Well, for the stores here, the online stock never, EVER matches whats actually at the store, to the point where I;ve had clerks tell me to never trust the website.

So I'm only a few pages in but Four Roads Cross is definitely a sequel to Three Parts Dead. It picks up right where that one left off. 

Yeah,the blurb for FRC pretty much confirmed the characters were returning.So glad Gladstone got back to another Tara and Abelard book.Will get to this soon.

My August SFF wishlist:

Spiderlight by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Spellbreaker by Blake Charlton
The Last Days of New Paris by China Miéville
The Guns of Empire by Django Wexler
Infernal by Mark de Jager
The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished by Rachel Aaron

This blurb sold me on Infernal :P

I just got Spiderlight and definitely am eager to get The Obelisk GateInfernal is on my radar but I might be waiting to see what others think first.  Also eager for Guns of Empire and was hoping for another novella by Wexler as he used to bring one out when the next novel came out in hardcover. 

Also out is Lian Hearn's Tale of Shikanoko series, Lord of the Darkwood that I plan on reading when it comes out.  Sergei Lukyanenko continues with his Watch series with Sixth Watch.  I probably will jump into Behind the Throne by K. B. Wagers because it is getting some good reviews and it looks to be another Orbit series that they are going to push fast and strong with subsequent releases every few months which, if solid enough, makes for some enjoyable reading.

Kind of on the fence with The Gate of Sorrows by Miyuki Miyabe.  It is billed as a sequel to one of her young adult books.  It sounds interesting, but I have never read the kids' book and I'm not sure how much depends on reading it.  The premise for the upcoming book though sounds appealing. 

A slightly different pace than the norm for me is The Gentleman by Leo Forest.  It looks like it could be fun.

The last book I have on my high interest list for this month is The Forgetting Moon by Brian Lee Durfee.  A new author from Saga Press which alone makes it interesting as they have had some varied success in authors with me and my shelves.

Ibenus by Seth Skorkowsky came out yesterday. I really enjoy the Valducan books and think they're some of the best urban fantasy out there, especially from the indie scene.

(Self-Promo) Cthulhu Armageddon and Straight Outta Fangton by C.T. Phipps came out last month

Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt by Chuck Wendig

The Tower of the Swallow (English translation) by Andrjez Sapkowski

The Transition of Titus Crow (audiobook version) by Brian Lumley and narrated by Simon Vance

I also endorse Spiderlight

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

This has now been released. There are "only" 368 pages in hardcover.

https://www.amazon.com/Queen-Blood-Book-Queens-Renthia/dp/0062413341/

Set in the magical world of Renthia, The Queen of Blood is Sarah Beth Durst’s ambitious entry into adult epic fantasy. With the danger of Peter Brett’s The Warded Man, heart of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, and lyricism of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind, this is the first chapter in a series destined to be a classic.

Terry Brooks really enjoyed The Queen of Blood:

“Wow, girl! What a great story! A truly wonderful fantasy novel which doubles as an allegory for our own earthly struggle between Man and Nature. Filled with fresh ideas and excitement, told with verve and heart. This book deserves a wide readership, and I think it will find one.”
