NEWSFLASH: Sarah J Maas announces new series

Clear out some shelf space! Sarah J. Maas, bestselling author of the Throne of Glass and Court of Thorns and Roses series, has announced a new series is headed our way!
EW shared the news of Maas' upcoming series, Crescent City, marking the author’s first foray into adult fiction.

Set in a universe where humans struggle with survival and hierarchies of the magical creatures they live among, Crescent City will follow half-human, half-Sidhe Bryce Quinlan as she seeks to avenge the death of her best friend, who was brutally murdered.

What starts as a personal quest for revenge soon becomes a duty to protect the world and the people she loves from a sinister enemy. The action-packed series will take readers on a journey full of adventure, mythology, and Mass’ signature touch for romance.

Maas also released a statement about the new series, in which she said, “Crescent City has been a passion project from the start, and I’ve been working on it for several years now whenever I get the chance. I can’t wait to introduce readers to Bryce, its heroine, who I think would be very good friends with Aelin and Feyre. The world of Crescent City is more modern than those in my previous series (basically, if the Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass worlds had modern-day technology), but it’s still chock full of magic, brooding warrior-types, and mysterious and deadly creatures.”

Crescent City is due to begin publishing in late 2019. Until then, there's plenty more Sarah J Maas titles on the horizon: The DC Comics novelization Catwoman: Soulstealer publishes in August 2018 and Kingdom of Ash, the final Throne of Glass novel, is releasing in October 2018. Plus earlier this month, A Court of Frost and Starlight was released!

Quote and book decription taken from EW article here.

Red Cover. Stephen King. This will be good.

 

The master of suspense is back in May 2018 with a thriller that will leave you gasping for more!

"There are some covers that grab you from the moment you see them, and the new Stephen King had me right from the colour red. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!" - Shannon for QBD

When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered in a town park, reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach, Terry Maitland, as the culprit. DNA evidence and fingerprints confirm the crime was committed by this well-loved family man.

Horrified by the brutal killing, Detective Ralph Anderson, whose own son was once coached by Maitland, orders the suspect to be arrested in a public spectacle. But Maitland has an alibi. And further research confirms he was indeed out of town that day.

As Anderson and the District Attorney trace the clues, the investigation expands from Ohio to Texas. And as horrifying answers begin to emerge, so King's propulsive story of almost unbearable suspense kicks into high gear.

Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy but there is one rock-hard fact, as unassailable as gravity: a man cannot be in two places at the same time. Can he?

Reviewsday: Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

 

Step boldly into a Wundrous new world of magic with Nevermoor!

"Nevermoor is the first book in a magical new series and is set to become one of the biggest children's books of the year. The story is at times reminiscent of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, A Series of Unfortunate Events and more recently A Most Magical Girl. Despite these likenesses, Nevermoor is wonderfully original and captivating read for all ages.

Morrigan Crow is a true underdog; a cursed child shunned by all, including her family. An extraordinary rescuer comes to her aid and thus launches Morrigan and us as readers headlong into a 'Wundrous' new world where she must remain long enough to discover her awesome true calling. A secret society, a magical hotel, a vampire dwarf and a giant talking Magnificat are just a few enchanting elements of this riveting series that will leave you wanting more." - Nola, QBD Fountain Gate

Nevermoor is available in store and online now.
