Jumping jellybeans, Batman! What a lot of drool-worthy titles coming out in 2012. Most of the ones of my radar will be release in January (that’s tomorrow!) so I don’t have to wait too long to read them. Whew! I’m eager to get my grubby mitts on:
The Daemon Prism by Carol Berg
A book written from the first person POV of Dante? Oh, yes, yes, YES! Btw, the dude on the cover? He’s all right, but he looks NOTHING like Dante. Boo. Ignore the guy, buy the book! (Er… buy books 1 and 2 first, then this one).
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
All right, part of why I want to read this book is because I know Jodi. And I know she’s a fabulous writer. But the big part of why I want to read this is because of its fantastic premise: Ana is a newsoul, born in a world where everyone is reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories from past lives. When she was born, another soul vanished. Now Ana must discover whether she truly is the bad omen everyone else thinks she is.
The Serpent Sea by Martha Wells
Heir of Novron by Michael J. Sullivan
Last book in the The Riyria Revelation series. Building to big climactic-type things. Lots of danger. Lots of loss. Many secrets to be revealed. Yay!
Other titles I’m interested in checking out: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (this one is all totally Jodi Meadows’ fault); Cinder by Marissa Meyer (a science fiction fairy tale featuring a cyborg Cinderella? Ooooh!); For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (post-apocalyptic retelling of Persuasion, my favorite Austen? Oh, yeah!); and Cold Steel (sequel to Cold Fire) by Kate Elliott.
Any books you’re looking forward to in 2012?
