Here are some of the other books launching on Tuesday June 25:
Tessa Gratton THE LOST SUN: The United States of Asgard.
“Gratton sets up an alternate universe where Norse gods are juxtaposed with typical American life in this first novel in a new series. While Astrid dreams of apples and Soren battles the berserker rage inside, they forge new alliances and a bond of friendship that puts them squarely in the path of a cat-and-mouse game played by gods.” —Booklist
Kelly McCullough Blade Reforged (A Fallen Blades Novel)
“Filled with multifaceted characters, layered plots, and the type of quixotic scenarios that only the imagination of Kelly McCullough could possibly create. The author, once again, crosses genres…Stories by Kelly McCullough are one of a kind—just like him. I found Aral’s world to be compelling and highly addictive. Brilliant!”—Huntress Book Reviews
Judith Tarr The Lady of Han-Gilen (Volume II of Avaryan Rising)
Here’s the announcement for Volume I, which came out last month.
The king’s heir of Ianon is long lost, vanished into the south. Her father refuses to name his son heir in her place, though that son is a mighty warrior. Then one day a young wanderer arrives with news that both breaks and heals the king’s heart: his heir is dead, but before she died, she gave birth to a son. That child, now grown, has come to take her place. But the king’s son will not surrender his hope of kingship to a boy without a father, though he claims to be the son of a god.
Sarah Zettel Golden Girl (The American Fairy Trilogy Book 2)
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2013:“In this sparkling sequel to Dust Girl (2012), showcasing Callie’s cleverness versus the mystical glitterati, neither Callie’s persistence nor the trilogy’s pace flags.”
Kevin Hearne Hunted (The Iron Druid Chronicles #6)
“It may be possible that Hearne and Atticus are the logical heir to Butcher and Dresden.”―SFFWorld
Pamela Munoz Ryan School Rules (Tony Baloney)
*”Ryan’s exuberant story takes a fresh look at sibling dynamics . . . . Fotheringham’s hyperbolic digital illustrations counterbalance the slyly understated narrative, portraying Tony’s (and Dandelion’s) antics with humor.”-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
Madeline Ashby iD (The Second Machine Dynasty)
Javier is a self-replicating humanoid on a journey of redemption.
