It has been a while since I have done a Book Haul post, but seeing that I received several interesting books today, I thought I would quickly do one to highlight some of the best books I have gotten in the last few weeks, especially as I am expecting some additional books in the coming weeks. Each of the below books sound extremely cool and captivating, and I cannot wait to see how they all turn out.
The Chase by Candice Fox (Trade Paperback)
The first book on this haul is the impressive new release from Australian author Candice Fox, The Chase, a cool thriller set around a mass escape from a maximum security prison. I have actually already read this book and it was pretty amazing, containing a clever and exciting story with some great twists to it. I will hopefully get a review together for this one soon but it is really worth checking out.
Turn a Blind Eye by Jeffery Archer (Hardcover)
Next up we have the latest novel from bestselling author Jeffrey Archer, Turn a Blind Eye, the third book in the William Warwick series. The William Warwick books are a fantastic and entertaining series which follows the titular character, William Warwick, a notoriously honest copper, as he attempts to stop some of the worst criminals in London. The first two entries in this series, Nothing Ventured and Hidden in Plan Sight, have both been fun reads and I look forward to seeing Warwick attempt to solve his latest crime.
Judas Horse by Lynda La Plante (Trade Paperback)
I was also lucky to receive a copy of the new Lynda La Plante crime novel, Judas Horse. La Plante is an author whose work I have been really enjoying in recent years, mainly with her Jane Tennison series (check out my reviews for Good Friday, Murder Mile, The Dirty Dozen and Blunt Force). Judas Horse is the second book in La Plante’s new Jack Warr series and features an intriguing plot about detectives using an informer to lure out a group of bank robbers. I am rather keen to see what La Plante’s other series are like and I cannot wait to see what happens in Judas Horse.
I was incredibly grateful to recently receive an advance proof of Mile Cameron’s upcoming science fiction debut, Artifact Space. Artifact Space is an intriguing and fantastic sounding science fiction read that features mysterious disappearances, impossibly large ships and alien races. I am hoping to dive into this one soon and based on how amazing some of Cameron’s latest fantasy novels have been (Cold Iron and Dark Forge), this should prove to be quite an exceptional read.
This is another book that I have been looking forward to for a while. A Prince and a Spy is the latest book from excellent historical crime fiction author Rory Clements, and will be the fifth book in the Tom Wilde series of World War II novels (check out my reviews for Nucleus, Nemesis and Hitler’s Secret). This latest book contains a fantastic sounding mystery, centered around the mysterious real-life death of the Queen’s uncle. I cannot wait to see how this story unfolds and I am expecting an impressive and clever read.
Brother Red by Adrian Selby (Trade Paperback)
I was also lucky enough to receive a copy of Brother Red, the latest novel from intriguing fantasy author Adrian Selby. I am not as familiar with Selby as I am with most of the other authors featured in this post, but I have heard some great stuff about his previous books from other reviewers. Brother Red looks set to be a captivating standalone fantasy adventure and I look forward to learning some more about this cool author.
The final book in this Book Haul post is Crusader from top historical fiction author Ben Kane. Crusader is the second book in Kane’s latest series which follows the life of the legendary Richard the Lionheart. The sequel to last year’s impressive Lionheart, Crusader should be another amazing read and I look forward to checking it out.
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.
