Mogsy’s Book Haul
Dreamwalker – kicking off this list of new arrivals in the last fortnight is this gem by C.S. Friedman from DAW Books. Her adult fantasy books have always intrigued me, but Dreamwalker is actually quite a departure, featuring a story set in a modern setting that is geared more towards a young adult audience. Nevertheless, it’s a good one! Be sure to keep an eye out for my review sometime next week.
V-S Day – this one looks simply fascinating. A little different from my usual reads, perhaps, but I’m always trying to challenge myself to read outside my comfort zone, and who can say no to a World War II alternate history novel?
Seoul Survivors – Jo Fletcher Books never fails to deliver when I’m looking for “something different” or “out there” in my speculative fiction. Naomi Foyle definitely has a new fan in me after this one. If you haven’t seen my review for Seoul Survivors yet, you can check it out here.
Stone Cold – the follow-up to Devon Monk’s Hell Bent, her new Broken Magic spin-off series from her Allie Beckstrom novels. I read and enjoyed Hell Bent last year and thought it was chock-full of potential, so I’m pretty excited for this one.
Scourge of the Betrayer – now on to the digital pile, which is never without its fair share of audiobooks. The Audible Matchmaker tool strikes again, and I’m finding more books that I have bought Kindle ebooks for that have a good price for the audio version. Scourge of the Betrayer has been on my to-read list for a while, and I hear the sequel is coming out in the summer, so boom, sold!
Shadow Ops: Control Point – the third book of this series is about to come out and it’s been getting some pretty rave reviews, so it got me thinking, maybe I shouldn’t wait to read this one anymore. I snagged the audiobook and let me tell you, that was a credit damn well spent. The review will be up soon, as soon as I recover from the awesomeness.
Nameless – an ebook for review from Ragnarok Publications, and having had such a great time with Mercedes M. Yardley’s novella last month, I didn’t need much convincing to read this one. Yardley’s stories and characters are always so grimly addicting!
Honor Among Thieves – I’m requesting books from NetGalley in moderation these days, but you couldn’t have kept me away from this one. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck writing as James S. A. Corey + Han Solo = win. That is all.
