June releases

Monday, June 3, 2013

From the list of coming up titles for 2013 I posted in January, The Crimson Shield (Gallow series book 1) by Nathan Hawke was pushed to July.


Psalms of Isaak book 4
Ken Scholes
June 18th
Who is the Crimson Empress, and what does her conquest of the Named Lands really mean? Who holds the keys to the Moon Wizard’s Tower? 
The plots within plots are expanding as the characters seek their way out of the maze of intrigue. The world is expanding as they discover lands beyond their previous carefully controlled knowledge. Hidden truths reveal even deeper truths, and nothing is as it seemed to be.

Before the Fall
Rojan Dizon book 2
Francis Knight
June 18th
With the destruction of their main power source, the towering vertical city of Mahala is in crisis. 
Downsiders are verging on a riot, and the mage Rojan Dizon is just trying to keep his head down and some power back to the city --- whilst staying hopeful that he won't get executed for using his magic. Then things go from bad to worse when a Downsider and emerging mage is found murdered. It's a crime that divides all sides, and the result is mayhem. 
But Rojan's worst nightmare is just around the corner. When he discovers the killer's identity, he's either going to be responsible for all-out anarchy, or for a war with Mahala's neighboring countries that no one is prepared for. 
And there's nothing Rojan hates more than being responsible.


A Discourse in Steel
A Tale of Egil and Nix book 2
Paul S. Kemp
June 25th (July 4th for the UK)
Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really – they have! No more sword and hammer-play for them! 
But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild. 
And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head…

Time of Contempt
Andrzej Sapkowski
June 27th in the UK (August 27th for the US)
Geralt was always going to stand out, with his white hair and piercing eyes, his cynicism and lack of respect for authority...but he is far more than just a striking-looking man. He's a witcher; his sorcerous powers, enhanced by elixirs and long training, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer; his targets are the vile fiends and demons that ravage the land. But first appearances can often be deceptive; not everything monstrous-looking is a monster...and even the fairest can have a bite!

I hope you're enjoying Quintessence. That's a lively one, full of delectable creatures that have evolved using magic.

Also pleased to see a new hammer and blade book on the table by Paul Kemp. I recall tentacles, demons, and glass lakes, enough to satisfy me in his last volume.
