Tricked (Iron Druid Chronicles, #4) by Kevin Hearne
Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.
The Saint Who Stole My Heart (Regency Rogues, #4) by Stefanie Sloane
The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass
The Wind Through the Keyhole (The Dark Tower, #4.5) by Stephen King
Man, o’ man. This is another week rife with a fantastic selection of new releases (and the above represents but a mere slice of the pie). Originally, I’d been concerned with only one book from the group: that’d be The Prophet by Amanda Stevens, third in the Graveyard Queen series. But there’s no denying the exciting titles also being released this cycle, including Tricked, the latest release in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid series. Amanda Hocking’s wildly popular Trylle trilogy is seeing its final installment’s wide release. Lynsay Sands and Steven King are releases some titles that will surely be on many a TBR. And by golly, is that another Robyn Carr title?
But what’s special is the crop of promising new series coming out this week. Julie Kagawa’s brand spankin’ new vampire YA series looks twisted and fun. Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (with its stunning cover) has most certainly been near the top of countless TBR list for some time now. And Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig has an awesome cover and super intriguing premise; looks like it’s going to be a must-buy urban fantasy (and horror-ish) series, for sure. I do reckon…sometimes, it’s almost dizzying to pay close attention to release weeks such as this one…particularly when trying to find a new-to-you author/series/title. So much to choose from that it can be tough catching really great new stuff from the get-go.
Do you have a favorite tried-and-true series that’s releasing a title this week? Looking for something completely new? If so, how in the world do you find new-to-you titles amongst the cacophony?
