It has been a while since I have done a Book Haul post, but seeing that I received several interesting books recently, I thought I would quickly do one to highlight some of the best novels I have gotten in the last few weeks. Each of the below books sound extremely cool and captivating, and I cannot wait to see how they all turn out.
The first book I want to highlight in this haul is The Burning Road by Harry Sidebottom, an awesome and action packed historical thriller. Set in ancient Sicily, this book follows a father and son team as they attempt to survive a brutal slave uprising that threatens to kill everyone they love. I have already read and reviewed this fantastic novel and it comes very highly recommended.
I was also lucky enough to receive a copy of the latest Star Wars novel, The Fallen Star by Claudia Gray, which is part of The High Republic range of Star Wars fiction. The Fallen Star continues the major storylines from the previous central High Republic novels (Light of the Jedi and The Rising Storm), and sees the vicious Nihil launch a deadly attack against the Jedi aboard Starlight Beacon. This is another book I have already read and it turned out to be a compelling and intense survival story in space. I will hopefully get a review for it up soon but it is a must read for Star Wars fans.
I was extremely happy to receive a copy of the new Gray Man book, Sierra Six, by Mark Greaney. Following a lethal spy as he attempts to fix a mistake from his past, this cool novel will show the first mission of awesome series protagonist, Court Gentry, and the many regrets he has from it. I am already confident that this will be one of the best thrillers of 2022 and I cannot wait to check it out.
Another awesome thriller I have received a copy of is Dark Horse by Gregg Hurwitz. The seventh book in his action-packed Orphan X series, Dark Horse will set Hurwitz’s legendary spy turned vigilante against an entire cartel. I cannot wait to see how this book turns out but I know I’m in for a very fun ride with it.
I just seem to keep getting books from some of my favourite authors as I also received the latest novel from Jonathan Kellerman, City of the Dead. This new novel from Kellerman will see his fun protagonist duo attempt to solve a brutal double murder. I am very keen to read City of the Dead, especially as I have really grown to enjoy Kellerman’s excellent and methodical murder mysteries, and this should be a compelling and enjoyable novel.
Her Perfect Twin by Sarah Bonner
I was very excited when I received this cool and unique thriller a little while ago. Set to be one of the most intense debuts of 2022, Her Perfect Twin follows a woman who kills her twin sister and then takes up her identity to ensure no-one knows she’s dead. I love the sound of this amazing novel and I am extremely keen to see how it all turns out.
The Cane by Maryrose Cuskelly
Another awesome debut I recently received is The Cane by Maryrose Cuskelly. Set in the wilds of rural Queensland, this Australian noir novel will dive into the creepy disappearance of a teenage girl. The Cane sounds pretty damn dark and I am sure I will have amazing time plumbing the depths of its disturbing story.
Abandoned in Death by J. D. Robb
The final book I received was the latest novel from J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts), Abandoned in Death. The 54th book in a long running series, Abandoned in Death follows the investigation into a killer who apparently targets bad parents. I love the sound of this novel and I may have to try diving into this series very late in the game.
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.
