The wait is over: OATHBRINGER out this week in the UK!


Brandon Sanderson‘s highly-anticipated OATHBRINGER is out this week in the UK! The eBook is available now, and the hardcover edition will drop on Thursday. Published in the UK by Gollancz, it is the third novel in the author’s critically-acclaimed, best-selling Stormlight Archive series. Here’s the synopsis…

Humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe whose numbers are as great as their thirst for vengeance.

The Alethi armies commanded by Dalinar Kholin won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, and now its destruction sweeps the world and its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the true horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that their newly kindled anger may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths the dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put Dalinar’s blood-soaked past aside and stand together — and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past — even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not avert the end of civilization.

Gollancz has also published the first two novels in the series: THE WAY OF KINGS and WORDS OF RADIANCE. Gollancz has published almost all of Sanderson’s novels in the UK, including the modern classic Mistborn series, and the stand-alone ELANTRIS, among others.

Reopening Aurora Teagarden’s cases in the UK…


Tomorrow, Piatkus are re-issuing Charlaine Harris‘s Aurora Teagarden series in the UK! To be graced with new jackets to match the style of the two latest novels, ALL THE LITTLE LIARS and SLEEP LIKE A BABY, we think you’ll agree that they look rather great. In case you’re unfamiliar with the series, here’s the synopsis for the first novel, REAL MURDERS

Charlaine Harris introduces a librarian whose bookish bent for murder gets her involved in a real-life killing spree…

Lawrenceton, Georgia, may be a growing suburb of Atlanta, but it’s still a small town at heart. Librarian Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden grew up there and knows more than enough about her fellow townsfolk, including which ones share her interest in the darker side of human nature…

With those fellow crime buffs, Roe belongs to a club called Real Murders, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It’s a harmless pastime — until the night she finds a member dead, killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss.

As other brutal “copycat” killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects-or potential victims…

Charlaine Harris is also the author of the hugely popular Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood urban fantasy series, published in the UK by Gollancz. The final book in that series, THE COMPLETE SOOKIE STACKHOUSE STORIES, is due out on November 23rd, also published by Gollancz.

In the latest novel from the author of Lady of Magick, Sophie and Gray Marshall must save the Kingdom of Britain from a tide of dark magic…

After three years of study at the University in Din Edin, Sophie and Gray return to London escorting Lucia MacNeill, heiress of Alba, to meet the British prince to whom she is betrothed. When sparks fail to fly between the pair, it is an inauspicious start, and when the traitors who tried to poison King Henry escape from prison, the alliance seems to be on shaky ground indeed. 

In an attempt to forge a connection between Lucia and Roland, Sophie enlists them in her scheme to reopen the mysterious and long-shuttered women’s college at Oxford. But the future of the college and of the kingdom itself is put in the balance by a deadly contest between Sophie’s group and enemies at Britain’s gates.

Allison & Busby has also published the first two novels in the series: THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN and LADY OF MAGICK.

‘Hunter’s characters and setting feel fully formed, and the story moves briskly through its twists and turns. This compelling blend of fantasy, intrigue, and Regency romance adds up to a thoroughly satisfying adventure.’ Publishers Weekly

Cover Reveal: Latest Ishmael Jones novel, INTO THE THINNEST OF AIR!


The fifth Ishmael Jones novel is on the way! Simon R. Green‘s INTO THE THINNEST OF AIR is due to be published in November (UK) and March (US), by Severn House. Here’s the synopsis…

Ishmael Jones is attending the re-opening of Tyrone’s Castle, an ancient Cornish inn originally built by smugglers. Over dinner, the guests entertain one another with ghost stories inspired by local legends. But it would appear the curse of Tyrone’s Castle has struck for real when one of their number disappears into thin air. And then another.

Severn House has published the other four novel in the series, as well: THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD, DEAD MAN WALKING, VERY IMPORTANT CORPSES, and DEATH SHALL COME.

Here’s just a handful of reviews the series has received so far…

‘[A] brisk, breezy first in a new mystery series… Convincing supernatural twists [and] witty chapter titles… readers will be anxious for a sequel.’Publishers Weekly on THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD

‘I really enjoyed the book. If anything it was over too soon. The author captures the English Country Manor Murder Mystery feel very well, as he sets up pretty much everybody as a suspect… I look forward to finding out more in future volumes.’British Fantasy Society on THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD

‘This sequel to the wonderful The Dark Side of the Road takes the basic structure of a traditional English country house mystery and mixes it with a bit of supernatural horror and suspense. Richard Kadrey and E.E. Knight fans will particularly relish Green’s genre-blending novel.’Library Journal on DEAD MAN WALKING

‘Ishmael is a wonderful character, an extraterrestrial living among humans, and the series (this is the third installment) is a clever mixture of thriller and SF-horror genres. Green is best known for the Deathstalker space operas, but give this one a few more installments to develop, and it could well become Green’s masterwork.’Booklist on VERY IMPORTANT CORPSES

The wait is over! Peter V. Brett takes us to THE CORE!


The wait is finally over! Today, Voyager publishes Peter V. Brett‘s highly-anticipated fifth Demon Cycle novel! The culmination of the epic tale, here’s the synopsis for THE CORE

Prepare for the final descent into darkness.

The war has begun.

For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them.

Two heroes arosemen as close as brothers, yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Painted Man, tattooed head-to-toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combatand emerge victorious. Ahmann Jardir, armed with magically warded weapons, called himself the Deliverer, a figure prophesied to unite humanity and lead them to triumph in Sharak Kathe final war against demonkind.

But in their efforts to bring the war to the demons, Arlen and Jardir have set something in motion that may prove the end of everything they hold deara Swarm. Now the war is at hand, and humanity cannot hope to win it unless Arlen and Jardir, with the help of Arlen’s wife, Renna, can bend a captured demon prince to their will and force the devious creature to lead them to the Core, where the Mother of Demons breeds an inexhaustible army.

Trusting their closest confidantes, Leesha, Inevera, Ragen, and Elissa, to rally the fractious people of the Free Cities and lead them against the Swarm, Arlen, Renna, and Jardir set out on a desperate quest into the darkest depths of evilfrom which none of them expects to return alive.

This is the final novel in the series. Voyager has published the first four, critically-acclaimed novels in the UK as well: THE PAINTED MAN, THE DESERT SPEAR, THE DAYLIGHT WAR and THE SKULL THRONE. Voyager has also published the novellas THE GREAT BAZAAR & BRAYAN’S GOLD and MESSENGER’S LEGACY.

Here are just some of the great reviews the series has received so far…

‘Brett’s debut builds slowly and grimly on a classic high-fantasy framework of black-and-white mortality and bloodshed. Brett’s gritty tale will appeal to those who tire of sympathetic villains and long for old-school orc massacres.’Publishers Weekly on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Brett ably blends fantasy and horror in this arresting first novel, the first in a planned series. An imaginative and exciting tale, recommended where there is interest in epic fantasy.’Library Journal on THE PAINTED MAN

‘Extends the author’s panoramic vision… Fans of epic fantasy in the tradition of Robert Jordan and George R. R. Martin will enjoy the arrival of a strong voice in multivolume epic fantasy.’Library Journal on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘A talented, talented man with the ability to create a world, expand upon it, throw in some excellent twists and really develop the characters… Everything you could possibly want from a book is here.  If you haven’t read this, you really are missing out and I can tell you right now that until you do so you have not experienced fantasy at its finest.’Fantasy Faction on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘A tour-de-force fantasy epic – brilliantly written, wonderfully realised, and highly addictive. I loved this.’Civilian Reader on THE DESERT SPEAR

‘Along with Brandon Sanderson and Daniel Abraham, Peter V. Brett is at the forefront of purveyors of epic fantasy whose teeth were ground on the likes of Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and David Eddings…in other words, with THE DAYLIGHT WAR, he’s at the top of his game. I give this my highest recommendation (including the first two novels in the series.)’Tor.com

‘All told, THE DAYLIGHT WAR is excellent epic fantasy–one of the most compelling in recent memory.’Staffer’s Book Review

‘Brett knows exactly what he’s doing… The book is very steadily paced – this a slow burn and much of it focuses on the interpersonal relationships between various characters. There are plenty of action-packed key scenes peppered throughout the book. The demons are mostly added as a spice here; Brett is setting up his world and the characters in order to tell his epic fantasy tale in a way that is both personal and global. It’s a page-turner, and quite possibly the best so far.’Starburst on THE SKULL THRONE

‘Peter V. Brett expands and deepens his endlessly fascinating and increasingly complex world.’Buzzfeed‘s Best Fantasy Novels of 2015, on THE SKULL THRONE

SLEEP LIKE A BABY tomorrow in the UK…


Tomorrow, Piatkus will release the print and eBook editions of Charlaine Harris‘s SLEEP LIKE A BABY! The latest novel in Harris’s beloved Aurora Teagarden series, here’s the synopsis…

In Sleep Like a Baby, the latest installment of Charlaine Harris’s Aurora Teagarden mystery series, Robin and Aurora’s newborn Sophie is proving to be quite a handful. They hire a partially trained nurse, Virginia Mitchell, to come and help the new parents for a few weeks when Robin has to leave town for work and Roe is struck with a bad case of the flu.

One particularly stormy night, Roe wakes to hear her daughter crying and Virginia nowhere to be found. Searching for her reveals a body outside… but it isn’t Virginia’s. Now, not only does Roe have a baby to care for but a new puzzle to contend with — who is this mystery woman dead in their backyard, and what happened to Virginia?

Earlier this year, Piatkus also published the previous novel in the series, ALL THE LITTLE LIARS. The first eight novels in the series are published in the UK by Orion.

‘Harris’s engrossing 10th Aurora Teagarden novel… Harris smoothly weaves together several seemingly unrelated threads to create a richly layered tale of how the bad choices people make in life can come back to haunt them.’Publishers Weekly

‘This is Charlaine Harris, who is the equal of the legendary Shirley Jackson in conveying the sinister lurking beneath the everyday. Slyly, quietly, she keeps the suspense building.’Booklist

‘A heroine as capable and complex as P. D. James’s Cordelia Gray.’Publishers Weekly on the series

Charlaine Harris’s DAY SHIFT and NIGHT SHIFT are today’s Kindle Daily Deal!


The second and third novels in Charlaine Harris‘s critically acclaimed new Midnight Texas series are today’s Kindle Daily Deal! Only 99p each, here is the synopsis for DAY SHIFT

Welcome to Midnight, Texas.

It’s a quiet little town, perched at the junction between Davy Road and Witch Light Road, and it’s easy to miss. With its boarded-up windows, single traffic light and sleepy air, there’s nothing special about Midnight… which is exactly how the residents like it.

So when the news comes that a new owner plans to renovate the run-down, abandoned old hotel in town, it’s not met with pleasure. Who would want to come to Midnight, with its handful of shops, the Home Cookindiner, and quiet residents – and why?

But there are bigger problems in the air. When Manfred Bernado, the newest resident in town, is swept up in a deadly investigation suddenly the hotel and its residents are the least of the towns concern. The police, lawyers and journalists are all headed to Midnight, and it’s the worst possible moment…

The series, which has recently been adapted into a TV series, is published in the UK by Gollancz.

Here are some of the great reviews these two novels have received so far…

‘Superstar Harris is back with the second installment of her fresh new series that explores the mysteries of Midnight, Texas. Harris excels at building a rich cast of characters who are like icebergs, with much lying beneath the surface. Having secondary characters from the Sookie-verse pop in just adds to the intriguing vibe!’RT Book Reviews on DAY SHIFT

‘Outsiders swarm the sleepy streets of Midnight, Tex., as supernatural superstar Harris returns with another practiced out-of-the-ordinary mystery…Harris continues to open up her setting, layering in more secrets as well as revealing some answers, and, in a nod to her fans, dropping the S-bomb to link this series with her famous Southern Vampire Mysteries series.’ — Publishers Weekly on DAY SHIFT

‘The reigning master of ‘‘rural fantasy’’ returns to the tiny village of Midnight, Texas (familiar from MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD) with a new story of magic and mystery, with local psychic Man­fred Bernardo embroiled in a murder case that brings unwelcome publicity to the town. Harris’s customary warmth and humor shines throughout.’Locus, New & Notable on DAY SHIFT

‘Bestseller Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse books) brings a real sense of community to the characters she introduced in MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD and DAY SHIFT, deepening the reader’s connection to an irresistible assortment of phone psychics and cowpunching vampires.’Publishers Weekly on NIGHT SHIFT

‘Harris if truly a gifted storyteller who delivers unique and fascinating characters… Great as always!’RT Book Reviews on NIGHT SHIFT

LADY OF MAGICK out now in paperback!


Sylvia Hunter‘s LADY OF MAGICK is out today in paperback in the UK! The second novel in the author’s Midnight Queen trilogy, it is published by Allison & Busby, here’s the synopsis…

In an ancient kingdom full of secrets, unease and myth, Sophie and Gray Marshall are about to be ensnared in an arcane plot that threatens to undo them both . . .

In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray, is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie’s hunger for magickal knowledge can finally be nourished. But she must put her newly learned skills to the test sooner than expected. 

All is not well in the Kingdom of Alba, and before long the Marshalls find themselves beset by unexpected dangers. When Gray disappears, and none of her spells can find a trace of him, Sophie realises something sinister has befallen him. Delving into Gray’s disappearance she soon finds herself in a web of magick and intrigue that threatens not just Gray, but the entire kingdom.

Allison & Busby have also published the first two novels in the trilogy: THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN and A SEASON OF SPELLS.

‘The second instalment in Hunter’s Midnight Queen series will attract both familiar and new readers. The new kingdom of Alba is a stark contrast to Hunter’s version of Britain but every bit as creative and fascinating, allowing for a completely new and unexpected plot. The characters continue to grow and change, as individuals and as a couple, as they face both magical and personal challenges. A new twist in every chapter will keep readers desperately turning pages until the end.’RT Book Reviews

‘Entertaining… Sophie and Joanna play central roles, which will delight fans of strong women. Hunter’s charming world, just a few steps off-center of our own, continues to offer many possibilities for future adventure.’Publishers Weekly

‘Another intriguing fantasy set in an alternate history version of Regency-era Europe.’Library Journal

Myke Cole’s SIEGE LINE coming soon in the UK!


Above you can see the eye-catching UK cover for Myke Cole‘s latest novel, SIEGE LINE. The third novel in the author’s Reawakening trilogy, it’s due to be published in the UK by Headline. Here’s the synopsis…

The Gemini Cell has taken everything from former Navy SEAL James Schweitzer: his family, his career, his life. Schweitzer knows the only way he can stop running, the only way to keep his son safe, is to destroy the Cell once and for all.

But out of control and fighting a secret war against the government it once served, the Cell will not be destroyed easily. Its Director has been sent to the far reaches of the subarctic to search for a secret that could allow the Cell to seize control of the country.

Schweitzer must move fast and join with the elite warriors of both America and Canada in a bid to get there first…

The Reawakening trilogy is a prequel trilogy to Cole’s debut Shadow Ops trilogy. All of his novels (thus far) have been published in the UK by Headline.

CONTROL POINT is Black Hawk Down meets the X-Men. Fast-paced and thrilling from start to fin­ish, CONTROL POINT is mil­i­tary fan­tasy like you’ve never seen it before. Cole’s wartime expe­ri­ence really shows in the gritty real­ity of army life, and in the explo­ration of patri­o­tism as the pro­tag­o­nist wrestles with the line between the law and what he sees as right.’ Peter V. Brett (Bestselling author of THE WARDED MAN) on CONTROL POINT

‘A solid improvement from CONTROL POINT, with a fantastic set of new characters… [FORTRESS FRONTIER is] a superb sequel.’ SF Signal

‘Cole wraps up the Shadow Ops trilogy with a magical battle royale… This action-filled, adrenalin-powered adventure, which enthusiastically embraces the tropes of tales about meta-powered minorities and the distrusting majorities who oppress them, provides a fitting end for the trilogy.’ Publishers Weekly on BREACH ZONE

‘With GEMINI CELL, Cole has nailed the characters better than ever before, weaving together a heartbreaking story of a Navy SEAL and his wife as they’re separated by death… an excellent story… Cole seems to delight in busting genre conventions… GEMINI CELL, like its siblings, demonstrates the complexity of the world in which Cole can tell numerous stories, each unique, thought-provoking and entertaining all at once.’ io9.com

‘Myke Cole continues to explore the double-edged nature of magic… easily the darkest novel in the series so far. However, it’s also one of Myke Cole’s best novels so far… captivating… great, vital speculative fiction.’ Tor.com on JAVELIN RAIN

ICYMI: Demon Cycle novellas available in the UK in paperback!


In case you missed it, Voyager is publishing Peter V. Brett‘s Demon Cycle novellas in paperback in the UK! Just what’s needed to tide you over until next week’s hotly-anticipated release of THE CORE, THE GREAT BAZAAR & BRAYAN’S GOLD is out already. Here’s the synopsis…

Humanity has been brought to the brink of extinction. Each night, the world is overrun by demons – bloodthirsty creatures of nightmare that have been hunting and killing humanity for over 300 years. A scant few hamlets and half-starved city-states are all that remain of a once proud civilization, and it is only by hiding behind wards, ancient symbols with the power to repel the demons, that they survive. A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated populace.

But there was a time when the demons were not so bold. A time when wards did more than hold the demons at bay. They allowed man to fight back, and to win. Messenger Arlen Bales will search anywhere, dare anything, to return this magic to the world.

Abban, a merchant in the Great Bazaar of Krasia, purports to sell everything a man’s heart could desire, including, perhaps, the key to Arlen’s quest.

MESSENGER’S LEGACY is due to be published in paperback this Thursday. Here’s the synopsis for the second novella…

Each night the world is overrun by demons. Only a handful of Messengers brave the darkness to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated human populace.

Six year old, Briar Damaj is Half-Krasian and called ‘Mudboy’ by the village children for his dark skin. When tragedy strikes, Briar decides the town is better off without him, and flees into the bog with nothing but his wits to protect him.

After twenty years, Ragen Messenger has agreed to retire and pass on his route to his protégé, Arlen Bales. But when he learns that Briar, the son of an old friend, is missing, Ragen is willing to risk any danger to bring him safely home.

To celebrate the release of THE CORE, and as we’ve mentioned on the newsfeed before, the author will be on tour in the UK from this Sunday! Full schedule below.

The first four novels are available now, published in the UK by Voyager: THE PAINTED MAN, THE DESERT SPEAR, THE DAYLIGHT WAR and THE SKULL THRONE.

UK Cover & Details: KILL ALL ANGELS by Robert Brockway


This December, Titan Books are due to publish the third novel in Robert Brockway‘s critically-acclaimed Unnoticeables series, KILL ALL ANGELS! Here’s the synopsis…

After the events of the first two books of the Unnoticeables series, Carey and Randall reached LA during the early ’80s punk scene, which was heavily mixed up with Chinatown. A young Chinese girl with silver hair is the Empty One that seems to run things there, and her ex-lover, an Empty One named Zang, has apparently turned against them and may or may not be on Carey’s side.

In modern times, Kaitlyn and company have also returned to LA, because her powers have been growing, and she has been having visions that may be telling her how to kill all of the angels. The downside being that they have to find a new one, first—and LA is the only place they know where to do that.

Titan have already published the first two novels, THE UNNOTICEABLES and THE EMPTY ONES.

Here are just a few of the reviews the series has received so far…

‘This is an off-kilter, offbeat piece of work…[The characters’] threads finally come together in an adrenaline-fuelled climax that reads like Hunter S. Thompson went drinking with Stephen King. Brockway’s style is raw and over the top, at times too clever and convoluted for its own good, but strangely readable, with unexpected depths.’Publishers Weekly on THE UNNOTICEABLES

‘Raucous, highly entertaining slice of madness, which cuts between the New York punk scene in 1970s New York City and present day Hollywood and offers plenty of chills and a lot of laughs… It’s fast, funny and creepy, with two hugely likeable central characters. Roll on book two.’SciFi Now on THE UNNOTICEABLES

‘Whatever those guys are smoking over at Cracked.com is working… Just kick back and enjoy the wild ride. [THE UNNOTICEABLES is a] nasty, freaky, and haphazardly funny horror story.’Kirkus

THE EMPTY ONES is a fever dream of horror and fantasy infused with punk rock, blood and guts, and humor. Its atypical heroes will keep you enthralled, wincing and cheering.’The Qwillery

‘Brockway refuses to slow down for an instant, and the result is a wild ride from start to finish.’B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on THE EMPTY ONES

‘In THE EMPTY ONES, Brockway turns the weird and crazy dials up to eleven and manages to pull off a novel that’s both hilarious and horrifying.’Kirkus

‘Brockway, a senior editor at Cracked, throws caution to the wind in this foul-mouthed, hard-drinking adventure, which reads like a collaboration by Hunter S. Thompson, the Sex Pistols, and H.P. Lovecraft.’Publishers Weekly on THE EMPTY ONES
