Book Haul – 22 July 2019

I’ve been lucky enough to receive a small but interesting collection of books in the last week from several publishers.  I am extremely excited about a couple of these books, but all of them sound extremely good and I hope I get the chance to check them all out.

Howling Dark by Christopher Ruocchio

This is the book I am probably most excited about.  Howling Dark is the sequel to Empire of Silence, one of my favourite books from last year.  I have been looking forward to this book for a while, having featured it in one of my Waiting on Wednesdays and my recent Top Ten Most Anticipated July-December 2019 Releases list.

I only just got Howling Dark in the last day and was extremely happy when I received my copy.  However, I also got a nice surprise when I saw that Ruocchio mentioned my blog in his acknowledgements.  This was an amazing honour and I am glad that he enjoyed my review of his initial book.

I am looking forward to checking out Howling Dark as soon as I can, and I am sure that I will really enjoy it.

The Bone Fire by S. D. Sykes

This is a pretty amazing sounding historical murder mystery.  I absolutely love the idea of a murderer stalking a medieval castle while the inhabitants are stuck inside avoiding the plague and I am sure this will make for an incredible story.

Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati

Another interesting sounding murder mystery.  At over 600 pages long, Where the Light Enters is a pretty massive read, but I think that it could be worth checking out.

Star Trek: The Captain’s Oath by Christopher L. Bennett

I have been getting into some Star Trek tie-in novels in the last year, including Available Light and The Way to the Stars, and The Captain’s Oath sounds like it could be another enjoyable read.

The Collaborator by Diane Armstrong

The final book I got, The Collaborator, sounds like it is going to be a powerful piece of historical fiction, and I look forward to reading this deep and dramatic narrative.

Overall, I think that this is a pretty good book haul.  Each of the titles mentioned above have a lot of potential and it looks like I will have some excellent reading in my future.
