I’ve been lucky enough to receive a small but interesting collection of books in the last week from several publishers. I am extremely excited about a couple of these books, but all of them sound extremely good and I hope I get the chance to check them all out.
Howling Dark by Christopher Ruocchio
This is the book I am probably most excited about. Howling Dark is the sequel to Empire of Silence, one of my favourite books from last year. I have been looking forward to this book for a while, having featured it in one of my Waiting on Wednesdays and my recent Top Ten Most Anticipated July-December 2019 Releases list.
I only just got Howling Dark in the last day and was extremely happy when I received my copy. However, I also got a nice surprise when I saw that Ruocchio mentioned my blog in his acknowledgements. This was an amazing honour and I am glad that he enjoyed my review of his initial book.
I am looking forward to checking out Howling Dark as soon as I can, and I am sure that I will really enjoy it.
The Bone Fire by S. D. Sykes
This is a pretty amazing sounding historical murder mystery. I absolutely love the idea of a murderer stalking a medieval castle while the inhabitants are stuck inside avoiding the plague and I am sure this will make for an incredible story.
Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati
Another interesting sounding murder mystery. At over 600 pages long, Where the Light Enters is a pretty massive read, but I think that it could be worth checking out.
Star Trek: The Captain’s Oath by Christopher L. Bennett
The Collaborator by Diane Armstrong
The final book I got, The Collaborator, sounds like it is going to be a powerful piece of historical fiction, and I look forward to reading this deep and dramatic narrative.
Overall, I think that this is a pretty good book haul. Each of the titles mentioned above have a lot of potential and it looks like I will have some excellent reading in my future.
