January 5, 2016  

It's Tuesday!  That means it is time to make a little bit of room on the bookshelves, load up your ereader, or make your way to your local library.  In other words - It is time to get your hands on a new book!

Here are just a few books that have just been released that you may want to grab soon:
City of Light by Keri Arthur
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | BAM!

The first in an all-new futuristic fantasy series from Keri Arthur—the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels.

When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between this world and the next, they allowed entry to the Others—demons, wraiths, and death spirits who turned the shadows into their hunting grounds. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....

As a d├ęchet—a breed of humanoid super-soldiers almost eradicated by the war—Tiger has spent her life in hiding. But when she risks her life to save a little girl on the outskirts of Central City, she discovers that the child is one of many abducted in broad daylight by a wraith-like being—an impossibility with dangerous implications for everyone on earth.

Because if the light is no longer enough to protect them, nowhere is safe...

 Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25205422-who-do-you-love
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | BAM!

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home forever.

Bait by Elena Hearty
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24502483-the-scamp?from_search=true&search_version=service

"Find the vampire's next victim. Or be the vampire's next victim."

Lenore has such a good time hanging out with Paul that she almost forgets he isn't her friend. He's a vampire. And she's his next victim-unless she's willing to find an alternative.

But when Lenore gets cold feet during her first hunting expedition, Paul doesn't carry out his threat. He snags Sam for dinner instead, a young man they encounter on the ride home. And while Paul is receptive to Lenore's pleas to keep their new prisoner alive, his motives aren't entirely altruistic. Sure, Lenore's willing to die for Sam. The real question is, how long before she's willing to kill for him?

  2. I think I'm going to put This is where it ends on the back burner for now. Too heavy, and I just finished one with similar subject matter. Yay for Passenger and I can't wait to read City of Light.
