September 2011 Book Releases, part 1

September 2, 2011 at 5:00 am 9 comments

Another big release day is coming up! Here are a few books I’m looking forward to getting my hands on:

One Salt SeaSeptember 6, 2011: One Salt Sea (October Daye series, book 5) by Seanan McGuire

This series has become one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series. The author weaves a good, fast-paced story for Toby and the gang. And, I also enjoy the theme of what it means to be a hero—especially through the eyes of a woman— on which Seanan McGuire often touches. I also enjoy the chemistry between Toby and Tybalt, the King of the Cats.

Archangel's BladeSeptember 6, 2011: Archangel’s Blade (Guild Hunter series, book 4) by Nalini Singh

While I didn’t enjoy the last book as much as the other books in The Guild Hunter series, I do enjoy the series originality. I’m excited about Archangel’s Blade, because this is the first book that will depart from Elena and Raphael’s relationship, and focus on Dmitri, Raphael’s second in command. I’m hoping this will shake things up a bit. My hopes are high, since I’ve already been hearing great buzz about it.

Never EnoughSeptember 6, 2011: Never Enough (Brown Siblings, book 4) by Lauren Dane

I’m still behind 1 book in this series, but am really looking forward to Adrian’s story.

I’ve really enjoyed all of the stories, and (eldest brother) Brody’s most of all. I like how we get bits and pieces of the other siblings’ stories without sacrificing the central relationship. Dane always conveys the depth of the main characters’ feelings so well.

I just LOVE this cover!

MidnightSeptember 6, 2011: Midnight (Dark Age Dawning trilogy, book 2) by Ellen Connor (aka Ann Aguirre and Carrie Lofty).

I had really high expectations for Nightfall (book 1 in the trilogy) and it lived up to all of them.

The world is dark and gritty and the action is intense. I’m looking forward to seeing how Chris, who is just beginning to become hero material in Nightfall, fills that role in Midnight.

Three years pass between the 2 books, and I’m really curious about how the world has developed during that time.

CipherSeptember 6, 2011: Cipher (Southern Arcana, book 4) by Moira Rogers

I read books 2 and 3 last month, and am so excited I didn’t have to wait long for Cipher.

Kat and Andrew’s story has been unfolding slowly over the course of the series (& boy has it been a bumpy ride!), and now they will finally get their HEA.

One of the great things about this series is that the wolf/supernatural politics are just as absorbing as the romance. I also can’t wait to see what will happen after the events in the previous book.

That’s a lot for 1 week, isn’t it? Is there anything coming out this coming week that you’re excited about?

        Keeping Promise Rock was my favourite of the three, but the others are also good. The Talker books are also up there in my list of Amy Lane favourites.

        And I’ve just started Clear Water :)

    I’ve only read the first book in Singh’s Guild Hunter series (and a novella), but I’m reading this one! I hope it’s okay to jump in like that because I’ve been waiting for Dimitri’s story. :D

      Yeah, I think that you won’t miss too much in the the overall story arc by skipping ahead. :-)

    I still have to read Archangel’s Consort. Unfortunately I haven’t regained my PNR mojo. I keep wanting the heroines to be…not so competent :) I did adore Dmitri in the earlier books though…so I guess I’ll get to it at some point ;)
