Some New Books Out Today

* Cold Steel by Kate Elliott
Elliott wraps up her marvelous Spiritwalker trilogy (Cold Magic; Cold Fire) with triple helpings of revolution, romance, and adventure on an alternate Earth where elemental fire and cold mages vie for power, and revolution is in the air...Elliott pulls out all the stops in this final chapter to a swashbuckling series marked by fascinating world-building, lively characters, and a gripping, thoroughly satisfying story. Publishers Weekly

* The Golden Girl by Sarah Zettel
It's hard for a brown-skinned girl to search the Depression-era back lots of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for a gateway to fairyland and harder still if both the Seelie and Unseelie courts are after her. It's 1935, and Callie LeRoux has journeyed to Hollywood from Slow Run, Kan., in search of her white human mother and black fairy father. A fairy kidnap attempt is foiled by none other than the famous Renaissance man Paul Robeson, a human who seems impervious to fairy magic. Kirkus

* Blade Reforged by Kelly McCullough
Aral the jack, formerly the noble Aral Kingslayer, is the best kind of hero: damaged, cynical, and despondent, yet needing only the right cause to rise from his own ashes. Alex Bledsoe

* The Lady of Han Gilen Avaryan Rising Volume II by Judith Tarr (The first book is The Hall of the Mountain King)
I read these when they first came out in the 90s, and they were a big influence on me.
