I have been having an absolutely fantastic couple of week for books, as I have been lucky enough to receive several incredible and amazing new novels from some of my local publishers. As I am anticipating getting a few more books in the near future, I thought I would take this opportunity to highlight some of the recent releases I have received before my new book pile got too big. These novels include some truly awesome new releases, several of which I have been eagerly awaiting for some time. I am extremely keen to read all of the books below and I cannot wait to check them out.
The first entry in this Book Haul post is one of my most anticipated books for 2021, The Three Paradises by the always amazing Robert Fabbri. The Three Paradises is the second entry in the Alexander’s Legacy series, which explores the brutal civil war that occurred after the death of Alexander the Great. The first entry in this series, To the Strongest, was an outstanding read and I cannot wait to see what chaos and bloodshed happens in this latest book.
Next up we have another book I have been looking forward to for a long time, The Kaiser’s Web by bestselling author Steve Berry. The Kaiser’s Web is 16th entry in the long-running Cotton Malone thriller series, which follows the titular character, Cotton Malone, as he gets swept up in a series of history-based conspiracies. Due to how much I enjoyed the last two novels in the series, The Malta Exchange and The Warsaw Protocol, I am extremely keen to check this latest book out, especially as it has a very cool sounding plot to it.
I only just did a Waiting on Wednesday article for Project Hail Mary a couple of days ago, but I have already received an early copy of this book. Project Hail Mary is the highly anticipated latest release from acclaimed science fiction author Andy Weir and features a fantastic space-based plot that sounds really impressive. I have heard some great things about this book and I am looking forward to checking it out before its release date in May.
God of Night by Tom Lloyd
The next book on this list is God of Night by the fantastic Tom Lloyd. God of Night will be the fourth book in The God Fragment series, which follows a group of rowdy and dangerous mercenaries armed with powerful magical guns as they sell their services across a chaotic fantasy continent. I loved Lloyd’s third book, Knight of Stars, and I am really keen to see how the series progresses.
The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
The Girls I’ve Been is a rather cool sounding young adult thriller that I am extremely keen to check out. This latest book from up-and-coming author Tess Sharpe follows a young, former con-artist, who is forced to revert to her old persona when she is held hostage in a bank robbery. I really like the sound of this fantastic concept and it looks set to be an amazing and clever read.
The Art of Death by David Fennell
This next book is another entry on this list that I am particularly keen to read as soon as possible. The Art of Death is an excellent sounding crime fiction novel that sees a deranged killer leaving the bodies of his victims around London, posed as unique art exhibitions. This sounds like a really fantastic and compelling novel and I am really looking forward to seeing how this story unfolds.
Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell
This next novel is a captivating and enjoyable science fiction debut filled with murder, intrigue and politics, as two aristocrats attempt to keep two planets from going to war. This sounds like a very interesting read and I look forward to seeing what this new author has come up with.
Run for Cover by Michael Ledwidge
Bestselling thriller author Michael Ledwidge returns with the captivating Run For Cover, which follows a former Navy Seal as he investigates a series of murders while being hunted by a sinister cabal of powerful men. This sounds like a particularly awesome and thrilling read and I cannot wait to check it out.
Inscape by Louise Carey
Next up we have a gritty and impressive sounding science fiction thriller set in a dark dystopian future with Inscape. Inscape is the debut novel of Louise Carey and looks set to be an excellent and exciting novel that I am very keen to try out.
Next up we have The Mask of Mirrors, the first book from the fantasy team of Marie Brennan and Alyc Helms, who are writing together under the M. A. Carrick pseudonym. The Mask of Mirrors is an impressive sounding fantasy thriller that has a lot of buzz surrounding it. I am going to make a real effort to get to this book soon and I am extremely interested in seeing what sort of captivating tale these two authors have come up with.
The final entry in this Book Haul post is the very fun sounding book The Hunting by Stephen Leather. The Hunting follows a doctor who, after being mistaken for a terrorist, is captured by a big game hunter with a grudge and set loose in his personal reserve as human prey. I absolutely love the sound of this outrageous novel and I already know I am going to read this in no time at all.
Well that’s the end of this latest Book Haul post. As you can see I have quite a bit of reading to do at the moment thanks to all these awesome books that have come in. Let me know which of the above you are most interested in and make sure to check back in a few weeks to see my reviews of them.
