Another week, another great collection of books that I have been lucky enough to receive. I have recently managed to pick up quite a few intriguing sounding books, all of which I am quite keen to check out in the future. Interestingly, unlike most of my previous Book Haul posts, I have not had the pleasure of reading anything from the authors featured below before, and I am looking forward to sampling their work.
The Throne of the Five Winds by S. C. Emmett
This is a massive fantasy novel that sounds like it is going to have a huge focus on political intrigue. This is one that I am extremely excited to read, although, at over 650 pages in length its going to take a bit of effort to get through.
Genesis by Robin Cook
A cool sounding medical mystery thriller that looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Tom Clancy’s Code of Honour by Marc Cameron
The latest book in Tom Clancy’s massive Jack Ryan universe, which follows the titular character, Jack Ryan, who is currently President of the United States, as he attempts to stop another threat to America. I have never read any of the Jack Ryan books before, but I am hoping that Code of Honour will prove to be a fantastic introduction to the series.
Lost by James Patterson & James O. Born
Robert Patterson is another massive author whose work I have never had the chance to check out before. This latest book from Patterson and his co-author James O. Born introduces a brand new protagonist, Tom Moon, and should prove to be an excellent crime thriller.
How to Play Dead by Jacqueline Ward
How to Play Dead sounds like a pretty dark thriller from author Jacqueline Ward, and it should be an interesting one to check out.
Nuking the Moon by Vince Houghton
Nuking the Moon is a really fun non-fiction novel about some of the craziest spy and military schemes ever conceived. I actually started reading this one out of interest and there are some amazing and near unbelievable stories in there.
All in all, not a bad book haul. I have managed to pick up some real gems here and I think all of them are going to be excellent reads.
