In the last week or so I have had a pretty substantial pile of books rock up which I am very excited to check out. There are some really good books in this lasted haul, including some sequels to several great reads I reviewed last year.
The Queen’s Tiger by Peter Watt
Ok, so I may be slightly biased because this upcoming book quotes one of my Canberra Weekly reviews on the cover, but this is probably the book I was most excited to get. The Queen’s Tiger is the exciting sequel to Australian author Peter Watt’s fantastic piece of historical fiction, The Queen’s Colonial. This should be a pretty epic book, and I hoping to read it well in advance of its release date.
Supernova by Marissa Meyer
Another advanced proof that I am exceedingly happy I got already, Supernova is the final book in Meyer’s Renegades trilogy. I really enjoyed the second entry in this amazing young adult superhero series, Archenemies, and I am keen to see how this trilogy ends. Also, check out how awesome that cover looks, I know I am impressed.
Shepherd by Catherine Jinks
An inriguing sounding Australian historical fiction book. Shepherd is a slightly shorter book than some of the others in my haul, but it sounds like it could be an good read with an unique Australian story behind it.
Magebane by Stephen Aryan
Magebane is the final book in Aryan’s The Age of Dread trilogy, which follows on from his previous The Age of Darkness trilogy. I really enjoyed the previous book in the trilogy, Magefall last year, and it sounds like Magebane is going to be a pretty impressive conclusions to these books.
The Art of Dying by Ambrose Parry
A medical murder mystery Victorian Edinburgh, this could be a fun book to check out.
State of Fear by Tim Ayliffe
This looks like it is going to be a really cool Australian thriller. Ayliffe’s debut novel, The Greater Good, was an excellent piece of Australian fiction last year, and I have high hopes for this sequel.
The Fifth Column by Andrew Gross
The final book I got in this haul is a pretty cool sounding novel. The Fifth Column is a thriller set around potential Nazi spies in 1940’s New York. It sounds really intriguing and I look forward to checking it out.
Which of these books are you most eager to read? Let me know in the comments if there is a book you want me to try and review first.
