Coming Up Next Year

07.09.16 | Comment?

We’ve taken a sneak peak at 2017, and here’s what we’ve ordered so far:

Carve the Mark, Veronica Roth (January). This is the first book in a new sci-fi/fantasy series by the author of Divergent. “On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?” (goodreads.com) In May Veronica Roth released a “first look” ebook of the first chapter; you can also read an extract here.

King’s Cage, Victoria Aveyard (February). The third book in the extremely popular Red Queen series. “Mare is forced to play a psychological cat-and-mouse game with an old and deadly enemy, where the stakes are not only the future of the Red Rebellion but the sanctity of her own mind.” (goodreads.com)

Caraval, Stephanie Garber (January/February). This is an interesting-looking debut novel that people are saying is a bit like the child of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, or perhaps Pirates of the Caribbean. All good things! Caraval is a legendary annual spectacular show where the audience gets to participate. After Scarlet’s father arranges a marriage for her, her hopes of seeing/participating in Caraval seem dashed, until her sister Tella organises to sneak her away. “Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nonetheless soon becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with her sister, with Legend, and with the other players in the game…” (goodreads.com)
