    Oh this is a snap–THE PROMISE OF BLOOD and THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN are both on my pre-order list. Also PARASITE because anything Mira Grant does I will buy and devour (as a reader, I won’t actually eat the books, books don’t taste that good).

    THE GHOST TRAIN TO NEW ORLEANS looks mighty interesting, but I want to see how I like THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK first. and CHARMING sounds interesting so that’s on my ‘to check out when I have time not that I ever actually have time but I’ll figure out how to make some eventually’ list (its a very specific list).

    I’m definitely looking forward to The Promise of Blood and the Riyria Chronicles books (they’re all pre-ordered), and I might check out Malice.

    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN and PARASITE for me! :-) Still waiting on THE QUEEN IS DEAD from my library…

    Very, very excited for Parasite. I love the way Ms. Grant writes and how she includes and uses scientific facts/organizations.

    By way of cover art (and let us be honest about first impression: We do judge books by their cover when we browse the store) I must say I am inclined to The Ghost Train to New Orleans, and Shaman.

    Ecstatic that there’s a new Mira Grant to look forward to.
    I’m really intrigued by the Amanda Carlson series but I haven’t even picked up the first one yet. One of these days. :)

    Love MICHAEL J SULLIVAN’s series so really looking forward to reading his prequels to the Riyria Revelations with the release of THE CROWN TOWER in August (although you’ve chosen book two, THE ROSE AND THE THORN as the book cover image above in this new series which is released in September). Also Brian McClellan has done a really good job on the net bringing his new series to light and have read the first chapter which bodes well as a story I can’t wait to read more of in PROMISE OF BLOOD and THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN.

    Oh… and missed seeing the new Michael Cobley book ANCESTRAL MACHINES above. He writes nothing but amazing space yarns of epic proportions, and one not to be missed if his other books are anything to go by.

    Well done. What an amazing shelf of new Fantasy & Science Fiction novels you have on display here!

    Parasite is at the top of my must have list, followed by Dirty Magic, Long Live the Queen and Cold Blooded. I can hardly wait!

    Got to have Dirty Magic; Promise of Blood & Crimson Campaign; Long Live the Queen & Charming; Seven Sorcerers & Stalk the Night. Too many great books, & way too little time to read.

    I just finished, literally, ‘Last to Rise’ and decided to check out this site here. I loved the ‘Rojan Dizon’ trilogy, but the way the author left him at the end keeps my hopes up for more adventures in that realm and with the same hero. I would really, really like that.
    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to you all to introducing me to this great site which looks full of great authors and very interesting books. Special thank you to Francis Knight!
