Upcoming Fiction

10.09.14 | Comment?

This week we’ve ordered a new novel by the ever-popular Jessica Shirvington, a gothic-horror sequel, some steampunk (!), and a collection of Magnus Bane stories (among many more!).

Corruption, Jessica Shirvington (November/December) – the sequel to Disruption. “Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt. Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally found what she’d been looking for. And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies. Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she’s not about to stay there. Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down. Not when there is still a chance she could win him back. In the exhilarating conclusion to Disruption, Maggie must do whatever it takes to show the world the truth. And the price for her quest?” (goodreads.com)

Between the Spark and the Burn, April Genevieve Tucholke – the sequel to the quite-spooky Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. “The crooked-smiling liar River West Redding, who drove into Violet’s life one summer day and shook her world to pieces, is gone. Violet and Neely, River’s other brother, are left to worry – until they catch a two a.m. radio program about strange events in a distant mountain town. They take off in search of River but are always a step behind, finding instead frenzied towns, witch hunts, and a wind-whipped island with the thrum of something strange and dangerous just under the surface. It isn’t long before Violet begins to wonder if Neely, the one Redding brother she thought trustworthy, has been hiding a secret of his own..” (goodreads.com)

Waistcoats and Weaponry, Gail Carriger (November) – the third in the Finishing School series (steampunk!). “Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style – with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what – or who – they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train. Sophronia uncovers a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos and she must decide where her loyalties lie, once and for all.” (goodreads.com)

The Bane Chronicles, Cassandra Clare – more of Magnus Bane! This is the collection of stories about everyone’s favourite cat-eyed warlock that have previously been published as ebooks (we have some of them available on Overdrive). Cassandra Clare says: “Ever wondered about the enigmatic, mysterious warlock Magnus Bane? The only character to appear in every Shadowhunter book, Magnus has a past even more shrouded in mystery than his present. I’ve teamed up with acclaimed YA writers Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan to create the Bane Chronicles, the back (and front) story of Magnus told in ten linked tales.” (goodreads.com)
