November releases

Thursday, November 1, 2012

November brings a lesser amount of releases (aside from Red Country by Joe Abercrombie in the US), which is actually a nice thing if you consider all the books we still have to read from 2012 (at least I think I'm not alone in this situation...).  Two books were also released in September or October and flew under by radar... never too late!


Knife Sworn
Mazarkis Williams
November 13th
After spending most of his life in captivity, Sarmin now sits upon the Throne of Cerana. But his reign is an uneasy one. And the emperor’s own heart is torn between two very different women: Mesema, a Windreader princess, and Grada, a lowborn untouchable with whom Sarmin shares a unique bond. In times past, a royal assassin known as the Emperor’s Knife served to defend the throne from menace, but the last Knife has perished and his successor has yet to be named. Sarmin must choose his own loyal death-dealer . . . but upon whom can be he bestow the burden of the Knife-Sworn?

Mage's Blood
David Hair
September 27th

Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade. 
The Magi are hell-bent on ruling this new world, and for the last two Moontides they have led armies across the bridge on 'crusades' of conquest.  
Now the third Moontide is almost here and, this time, the people of the East are ready for a fight ... but it is three seemingly ordinary people that will decide the fate of the world
