Brandon Sanderson’s ALCATRAZ returns to audio…


The fifth instalment in Brandon Sanderson‘s Alcatraz series is available now in audio! Published by W.F. Howes, here’s the synopsis for THE DARK TALENT

Alcatraz Smedry has successfully defeated the army of Evil Librarians and saved the kingdom of Mokia. Too bad he managed to break the Smedry Talents in the process. Even worse, his father is trying to enact a scheme that could ruin the world, and his friend, Bastille, is in a coma. To revive her Alcatraz must infiltrate the Highbrary, the seat of Evil Librarian power. Can Alcatraz figure out a way to save Bastille and defeat the Evil Librarians?

The first four novels in the series are available in a collected omnibus, published in the UK by Gollancz.

On his thirteenth birthday, Alcatraz — a foster child — gets a bag of sand in the mail which purports to be his ‘inheritance’ sent from his father and mother. The Librarians, of course, immediately steal the bag of sand from him.

This sparks a chain of events which leads Alcatraz to realize that his family is part of a group of freedom fighters who resist the Evil Librarians – the secret cult who actually rule the world. Alcatraz’s grandfather shows up and tows him off to infiltrate the downtown library to steal back the mystical bag of sand. The ensuing story involves talking dinosaurs, sentient romance novels, and a dungeon-like labyrinth hiding beneath the innocent-looking downtown library.

Brandon’s next novel is OATHBRINGER, the third novel in his best-selling Stormlight Archive series. It is due to be published by Gollancz in November.

Anticipation for THE CORE is very high indeed, so we recommend everyone arrives early for these events! Here’s the synopsis for the novel…

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 arose — men 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.

Voyager has published the first four novels in the series: THE PAINTED MAN, THE DESERT SPEAR, THE DAYLIGHT WAR and THE SKULL THRONE. The publisher has also released Brett’s novellas set in the world (more to come): THE GREAT BAZAAR & BRAYAN’S GOLD and MESSENGER’S LEGACY.

UK Cover and Details for Brandon Sanderson’s OATHBRINGER!


Above is the recently-unveiled, striking cover for OATHBRINGER, the third novel in Brandon Sanderson‘s critically-acclaimed, best-selling Stormlight Archives epic fantasy series! Due to be published in the UK by Gollancz in November, 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 also published Brandon’s fan-favourite modern classic, the Mistborn series (currently at six novels).

Out Now: THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN by Sylvia Hunter


The paperback edition of Sylvia Hunter‘s THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is out today in the UK! Published by Allison & Busby, here’s the synopsis…

Gray Marshall’s Britain is a fragmented kingdom of many tongues, many gods and many magics. But all that concerns Gray is returning as soon as possible to his studies at Merlin College, Oxford and setting right the nightmare that has seen him disgraced and banished to his tutor’s home.

Sophie Callender may not have magic herself and a father who forbids his daughters a magical education, but her bookish rebellion and growing friendship with Gray are the first steps of a journey. A journey that will involve them in a conspiracy at the heart of the kingdom and into the legend of a young queen who vanished without a trace years before.

THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is the first novel in the fantasy trilogy of the same name. Allison & Busby have also published the other two books in the series: LADY OF MAGICK and A SEASON OF SPELLS.

‘The history of her world is not the usual stuff … If Hunter can be this inventive in her first novel, I can’t wait to see what she does next.’  —  Marie Brennan, author of Memoirs of Lady Trent series

‘In THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN, Izzo Hunter pulls from a multitude of mystical tales and myths to create her own magical version of Britain that is both innovative and intriguing. The plot is creative and suspenseful — and never predictable. Your affection for the dynamic heroes will only grow as Hunter’s characters face challenge after unexpected challenge. The MIDNIGHT QUEEN is a novel that readers will be unable to put down.’ RT Book Reviews

THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is, above all else, a powerfully atmospheric novel, and a huge reason why is because of Hunter’s writing….The atmosphere is incredible, and the characters are fantastically believable and delightfully developed… THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is a love story that will warm your heart, and a story of magic and struggle, truth and might, in the face of all odds, with some stunning writing that will really hook readers and brings them into the colorful world that Hunter has created.’ Bookworm Blues 

‘A great fantasy introductory book… THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN sets up a storyline with intrigue, magic and romance…[that is] a really fun ride.’ Seattle Geekly

As a second civil war rages, with families fighting against families on opposite sides, Union president Samuel T. Sloan battles to keep the country whole.

Tanya Huff’s A PEACE DIVIDED lands tomorrow!


Tanya Huff‘s anticipated new Peacekeeper novel is published by Titan Books tomorrow in the UK! Continuing the sci-fi adventures of Torin Kerr, here’s the synopsis for A PEACE DIVIDED

Ex-Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr drew together an elite corps of friends and allies to take on covert missions that the Justice Department and the Corps could not officially touch.

When the scientists doing a preliminary archaeological dig on a Class Two planet are taken hostage, Torin’s team is sent to free them. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the mercenaries holding them are a mix of Confederation and Primacy forces, and are looking for a weapon with power beyond anything previously known. Torin must contend with the politics of peace that have added members of the Primacy — former enemies — to her team. She will have to sift through shifting loyalties as she discovers that the line between “us” and “them” is anything but straight.

Titan Books also published the first in the series, AN ANCIENT PEACE, as well as Huff’s first Torin Kerr series, the five-book Confederation sequence.

Here are some reviews for the Peacekeeper series…

‘Huff’s ability to communicate complex personal dynamics and deep trust through what feels like casual banter establishes the character of the team well for the reader, and solid stretches of reconnaissance and well-tuned moments of violence show Huff’s military SF skills still on point.’  —  Publishers Weekly

‘The action hits the planet running, Huff kicks it into high gear.’  —  RT Book Reviews

‘[I] thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced and fun “secret mission” type story, and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I definitely recommend AN ANCIENT PEACE for fans of military sci-fi.’  —  SF Revu

‘This book can be read as a straight-up adventure (with obvious nods to Indiana Jones along the way), and on that level it’s very entertaining. But there’s more to it, if you pause to consider… I’m really looking forward to seeing where the next book goes. I think Torin Kerr has become my favorite of Huff’s characters, which is saying something.’  —  Fantasy & Science Fiction

‘Book two of the Peacekeeper series is a fun outing with familiar characters on a remote world that may hold the key to ending all the threats that sentient plastic holds.’  —  RT Book Reviews on A PEACE DIVIDED

Huff’s Enchantment Emporium urban fantasy series, and her stand-alone fantasy THE SILVERED, are also published in the UK by Titan.

Tomorrow, Severn House publish the fourth novel in Simon R. Green‘s Ishmael Jones mysteries is out tomorrow in the UK! Here’s the synopsis for DEATH SHALL COME

Ishmael Jones is faced with a dead body and a missing mummy in this highly entertaining, genre-blending mystery.

Ishmael and Penny go to Cardavan House for the unveiling of an Egyptian mummy. When a body is found, Ishmael doesn’t believe the mummy’s curse is to blame. He sets out to find the human killer, but how can he explain the odd footsteps creeping along the corridors? Who is playing games with them and why?

Severn House will also published DEATH SHALL COME in the US in September 2017. Severn House have also published the first three novels in the series on both sides of the Atlantic: THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD, DEAD MAN WALKING and VERY IMPORTANT CORPSES.

Here are some of the 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

‘Genre-blending author Green introduces another wisecracking protagonist, Ishmael Jones…Fans of the British TV series Torchwood will enjoy the irreverent, otherworldly protagonist.’ Booklist on THE DARK SIDE OF THE ROAD

‘Not to be taken too seriously, this meld of SF and traditional hard-boiled spy fiction hints at plenty of further adventures.’ Publishers Weekly on DEAD MAN WALKING

‘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

‘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 (Starred Review) on VERY IMPORTANT CORPSES

Simon R. Green is the author also of the Nightside, Secret Histories and Ghost Hunters series, published in the UK by Jo Fletcher Books.

Tomorrow, Titan Books will publish Jack Campbell‘s latest novel, VANGUARD! The first novel in the Genesis Fleet prequel series, here’s the synopsis…

Earth is no longer the centre of the universe. After the invention of the faster-than-light jump drive, humanity is rapidly establishing new colonies.

When a nearby world attacks, the new colony of Glenlyon turns to Robert Geary, a former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, once an enlisted Marine. They must face down warships with nothing but improvised weapons and a few volunteers – or die trying.

The only hope for lasting peace lies with Carmen Ochoa, a “Red” from anarchic Mars, and Lochan Nakamura, a failed politician, and their plan for a mutual alliance. But if their efforts don’t succeed, space could become a battlefield between the first interstellar empires…

The Genesis Fleet series is a prequel to Campbell’s best-selling Lost Fleet series, which (along with a number of other series) is also published in the UK by Titan Books.

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 have 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 on A SEASON OF SPELLS

‘In THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN, Izzo Hunter pulls from a multitude of mystical tales and myths to create her own magical version of Britain that is both innovative and intriguing. The plot is creative and suspenseful — and never predictable. Your affection for the dynamic heroes will only grow as Hunter’s characters face challenge after unexpected challenge. THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is a novel that readers will be unable to put down.’RT Book Reviews

‘A well-balanced blend of fantasy with a historical fiction-type setting, overlaid with a story laced with a heavy dose of the kind of chaste, slow-burn romance one might find in a traditional Regency novel… THE MIDNIGHT QUEEN is a very beautiful, very atmospheric novel about young love.’Bibliosanctum

‘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 on LADY OF MAGICK

Titan Unleashes the HELL-HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES…


Today, the second novel in G.S. Denning‘s Warlock Holmes series hits shelves! Published by Titan Books, here’s the synopsis for THE HELL-HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

The game’s afoot once more as Holmes and Watson face off against Moriarty’s gang, the Pinkertons, flesh-eating horses, a parliament of imps, boredom, Surrey, a disappointing butler demon, a succubus, a wicked lord, an overly-Canadian lord, a tricycle-fight to the death and the dreaded Pumpcrow. Oh, and a hell hound, one assumes.

The first novel in the series, A STUDY IN BRIMSTONE is also published by Titan Books. Here are some of the great reviews the first novel has received so far…

‘Douglas Adams meets Arthur Conan Doyle in this delightfully absurd collection of six cases… hilarious.’Publishers Weekly

‘The characters are so likable that they can pause their absurd antics to contemplate prejudice and privilege without missing a beat or falling out of their outrageous world. Denning has a knack for smooth writing that carries the action along and a keen sense for how to set up a joke. He imagines his world with gusto, lavishing the reader with hilarious details like Holmes’ accordion playing and a gang of Baker Street Irregulars made up of horrifying were-rats… Funny, clever, and entertaining.’Kirkus

Some ideas are so obvious and clever that you wonder why it’s taken the world so long to come up with them… Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone is clever and funny supernatural silliness. Dennings has twisted and warped Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world, to make it strange and sinisterly magical, and yet he’s somehow managed to preserve the core charm of the original stories… If you ever wondered how much better Sherlock’s would be if people could hurl hellfire at each other, well this one is for you.’Starburst

‘As with Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, much of Denning’s shtick revolves around finding new riffs on Arthur Conan Doyle’s original tales. But rather than simply trading up the spyglass for a smartphone, WARLOCK HOLMES goes balls out by, for example, presenting the Baker Street Irregulars as shape-shifting rats and Inspector Lestrade as a vampire who drinks neat nosebleed.’ SFX

Marie Brennan’s WITHIN THE SANCTUARY OF WINGS out today in the UK!


The final volume in Marie Brennan‘s fan-favourite, critically-acclaimed Memoirs of Lady Trent is out today! Published in the UK by Titan Books, here’s the synopsis for WITHIN THE SANCTUARY OF WINGS

The conclusion to the thrilling memoirs of Lady Isabella Trent and her legacy of dragon evolutionary research and anthropological adventures

After nearly five decades (and, indeed, the same number of volumes), one might think they were well-acquainted with the Lady Isabella Trent — dragon naturalist, scandalous explorer, and perhaps as infamous for her company and feats of daring as she is famous for her discoveries and additions to the scientific field.

And yet–after her initial adventure in the mountains of Vystrana, and her exploits in the depths of war-torn Eriga, to the high seas aboard The Basilisk, and then to the inhospitable deserts of Akhia — the Lady Trent has captivated hearts along with fierce minds. This concluding volume will finally reveal the truths behind her most notorious adventure — scaling the tallest peak in the world, buried behind the territory of Scirland’s enemies — and what she discovered there, within the Sanctuary of Wings.

Here are just a couple of the early reviews the novel has received…

‘Brennan delights with this fifth and final memoir… Lady Trent is the perfect heroine for this history-flavored fantasy romp.’Publishers Weekly

‘A thoroughly absorbing conclusion to this refreshingly different and consistently intriguing pentalogy.’Kirkus (Starred Review)

The first four novels in the series are also published in the UK by Titan: A NATURAL HISTORY OF DRAGONS, THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS, VOYAGE OF THE BASILISK and IN THE LABYRINTH OF DRAKES. The first novel in the series is currently part of Amazon UK’s Kindle Monthly Deal.

Titan recently re-issued Brennan’s Onyx Court urban fantasy series in the UK: MIDNIGHT NEVER COME, IN ASHES LIE, A STAR SHALL FALL, and WITH FATE CONSPIRE.
