It's HERE!

Thursday, July 14, 2011

After six years of waiting since the last in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, A Feast of Crows, the fifth is out! A Dance of Dragons arrived at my doorstep yesterday, a whole 5 days before expected delivery and two before its official publication!

Six years of patiently waiting and it arrives just after I finish another I've long wanted to read (Heartless). Perfect timing!

Also, here are some cheap nookbook/ebooks I've stumbled across lately:

Morgan Karpiel writes short steampunk/romance-novelish novellas set in the same universe. They're all fairly short, and quick to read. The list of titles in the Fantasies of New Europa:

The Inventor  (amazon link) 
The Admiral (amazon link) 
The Aviator (amazon link) 

All four titles are listed at $.99 for both ereaders; I've only read and bought two of them (The Inventor and The Admiral) but they were enjoyable, if short.

If you're looking for paranormal romance, Tara Shuler has a series of three called Blood Haze with the first priced at $.99 and the last two at $2.99 each.

Book one: Shelter (amazon link)

Two guys, one girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart.
Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her.
She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life.
Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too.
But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything... 

The remaining two are Storm (amazon link) and Betrayal (amazon link) available to buy now. I haven't read any of these so no guarantees on quality!

Addison Moore's Celestra series is another quality self-published effort I've happened upon. I've read (and reviewed) the first book Ethereal (only $.99 for Nook and Kindles) and plan to read the following two Tremble ($2.99 on Nook and Kindle) and Burn.
Blurb for Ethereal:

Sixteen-year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.
When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.
Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.
Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.
Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she? 

That's all for now because I've got a 900 page book waiting for me!


  1. Have fun digging in -- my feeds have been exploding as folks are reading! enjoy!

  2. I just got Game of Thrones to see what all the fuss was about, apparently I should plan to be addicted. :) Love the links to all the books.

  3. You two are perhaps my favorite bloggers. It's always nice to have comments from the both of ya. And I plan to Audra! I really hope you end up liking the series, Libby. It's not for everyone, but boy is it for me!
