New Books Tuesday

I've got a question from the previous question post to answer, and I'll probably/hopefully do that tomorrow. And it looks like The Edge of Worlds is shipping early so if you preordered it you might be seeing it soon.

Also, I saw the almost finished cover art by Yukari Masuike for The Harbors of the Sun, the sequel, and it's gorgeous.

Cool news: with it's $1.99 sale price Stories of the Raksura II hit #1 in SF/F anthologies over the weekend, and had a flag and everything, which is a first for me.


Books

* Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop
Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

* The Bone Flower Goddess by T.L. Morganfield
Discovering the truth about her forgotten past sets Quetzalpetlatl—former Queen of Tollan and High Priestess of Quetzalcoatl—on a new journey, to rebuild her life from the ashes of the Feathered Serpent’s deception. Her top priority is to rescue her son from the underworld, but the Lord of the Dead will only resurrect him in exchange for the most powerful of the gods: Quetzalcoatl himself.

* Novelette: The Terracotta Bride by Zen Cho
In the tenth court of hell, spirits wealthy enough to bribe the bureaucrats of the underworld can avoid both the torments of hell and the irreversible change of reincarnation. It's a comfortable undeath … even for Siew Tsin. She didn't choose to be married to the richest man in hell, but she's reconciled. Until her husband brings home a new bride. Yonghua is an artificial woman crafted from terracotta. What she is may change hell for good. Who she is will transform Siew Tsin. And as they grow closer, the mystery of Yonghua's creation will draw Siew Tsin into a conspiracy where the stakes are eternal life – or a very final death.

* Law of Survival by Kristine Smith
It takes a killer to catch a killer. Jani Kilian finally has her life under control. Discharged from the Service, she’s become an important player in negotiations with the alien idomeni. But when a classified report containing revelations about past crimes comes to light, Jani realizes that old enemies still seek to destroy her. As dangers mount and those closest to her are threatened, a hard lesson learned during her years on the run hits home. Whether in colonial back alleys or halls of power, the game is life and death, and only the winner survives.

* The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, the sequel to The Fifth Season
The season of endings grows darker as civilization fades into the long cold night. Alabaster Tenring -- madman, world-crusher, savior -- has returned with a mission: to train his successor, Essun, and thus seal the fate of the Stillness forever.

* Magic and Manners by C.E. Murphy
It is a truth universally accepted that well-bred members of Society are not beleaguered with magic. For Elsabeth Dover and her sisters, that truth means living in a perpetual state of caution, never using their sorcerous gifts in public. Elsabeth chafes under the stricture, but not enough to risk the possibility of good marriages for her sisters...until she meets handsome, arrogant Fitzgerald Archer.

* Spirit Week Showdown by Crystal Allen
A hilarious and spunky new heroine in the vein of the heroines of such beloved books as Ramona the Pest, Ivy and Bean, and Clementine, from Crystal Allen—the acclaimed author of How Lamar’s Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy.

* A Useful Woman by Darcie Wilde
Inspired by the novels of Jane Austen, this new mystery series set in 19th-century London introduces the charming and resourceful Rosalind Thorne, a woman privy to the secrets of high society—including who among the ton is capable of murder...

Amazon tells me Edge of Worlds is shipping out to me TODAY! YAY!

I can't believe how fast it's getting out there!

My copy is out for delivery today!!!

I actually bought Raksura II from the sale even though I had the paper, never hurts to have a backup, for $2. Also thanks for the reminder about pre-ordering Obelisk Gate.

My Edge of Worlds arrived yesterday. I planned to wait until the weekend to read it. Yeah, right. I want the sequel NOW.

Really, really excellent.

Yay, so glad you enjoyed it! The sequel's nearly done, so I'm hoping it'll come out about the same time next year.

mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow! i might have to re-read the last few just to savor the new one all the better. ;)

That's awesome, I hope it gets there today!

Just got my copy today. Can I say with complete confidence, without having even started it, that I love it? You haven't failed me yet!
