Anticipated July 2019 Releases

July coming in with yet another strong month of publications. I feel like I’m never going to make one of these posts where I’ll only have one or two books.


The Heart of Hell – Wayne Barlowe – 2 July 2019

41555933

I have a certain fondness for evil protagonists, demons especially, that I really don’t get to read enough of in traditionally published fiction. I’m not sure if this book is a sequel (it’s not marked so on Goodreads but the author has an earlier book that mentions one of the characters in this summary), but either way that’s an extra book added to my TBR!

Sargatanas has Ascended and the doomed, anguished souls have found themselves emancipated. Hell has changed…hasn’t it? The demons, wardens of the souls, are free of their inmates…

And the damned, liberated from their terrible torments, twisted and bent but thankful that they are no longer forced to be in proximity to their fearsome jailors, rejoice. But something is stirring under the surface of Hell’s ceaseless carnage…and into this terrible landscape come three entities:

Lilith, the former First Consort to Beelzebub and her Sisters of Sargatanas trying to find a way to save Hannibal…again;

Boudica, a brick no more, forever in search of her lost daughters;

Adramalik, the former Grand Master of the Priory of the Fly reduced to serving a new lord, Ai Apaec, and seeking his destiny as Prince of Hell. (more)

Anticipated May 2019 Releases

Anticipated Releases is going to be a new monthly re-occurring post on this blog because recently my spring semester ended and I got this great idea in my head to say, hey, what if I talked about books I’m interested in this month? What a novel idea. I don’t plan to have a set number of books for these posts so I’m expecting some very long and very short posts in the future. This one happens to be long because of Mark Lawrence’s insane writing speed.


One Word Kill – Mark Lawrence – 1 May 2019

39792427

This one’s already out, but it’s a May publication so it goes on the list. This one seems to be D&D based with an almost litRPG like setting/plot. Despite all the news around it (and Mark giving it to Amazon Prime members for free), I find that I know very little about it. However, this is Mark Lawrence and I’ve enjoyed all his other books

In January 1986, fifteen-year-old boy-genius Nick Hayes discovers he’s dying. And it isn’t even the strangest thing to happen to him that week.

Nick and his Dungeons & Dragons-playing friends are used to living in their imaginations. But when a new girl, Mia, joins the group and reality becomes weirder than the fantasy world they visit in their weekly games, none of them are prepared for what comes next. (more)
