The first of our big new releases for 2013 are hitting the shelves tomorrow and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on them! First up we have the start of a new series, The Time-Keepers, by the the amazing Traci Harding, Dreaming of Zhou Gong. We love the bold new cover look, which we think will really stand out.
This time Traci takes us to China, but an ancient China not quite as the history books tell us … The Wu have been living in isolation for decades while the Shang Emperor and his enchantress have ruled the land. It has been a terrible time for the common people and the noble Ji brothers are keen to bring the emperor′s arrogant bloodthirsty reign to an end. They believe an ancient prophecy has predicted the fall of the Shang emperor and they are keen to enact it, but first they must journey to the mountain and seek out the Wu.
When the Ji brothers join forces with the beautiful, enigmatic Hudan and her equally mysterious tiger sister, they begin a powerful journey of love and adventure.
Next up we have the next book in Peter V. Brett’s dark Demon Cycle series, The Daylight War! Civil War has erupted and threatens to divide humanity, just as they need to unite to battle the coming demon horde …On the night of a new moon all shadows deepen.
Arlen Bales understands the coreling threat better than anyone. Born ordinary, the demon plague has shaped him into a weapon so powerful he has been given the unwanted title of saviour, and attracted the attention of deadly enemies both above and below ground.
Unlike Arlen, Ahmann Jardir embraces the title of Deliverer. His strength resides not only in the legendary relics he carries, but also in the magic wielded by his first wife, Inevera, a cunning and powerful priestess whose allegiance even Jardir cannot be certain of.
Once Arlen and Jardir were like brothers. Now they are the bitterest of rivals. As humanity′s enemies prepare, the only two men capable of defeating them are divided against each other by the most deadly demons of all: those that lurk in the human heart …
Peter did a great Q&A with our US friends on the Global Voyager blog too, all about his writing and The Daylight War!
If you missed it in trade paperback, you can also catch the second volume in Jennifer Fallon’s Rift Runners series, The Dark Divide, a tale of Druids, Shinto warriors and twins seperated across parallel earths in a new smaller edition too!
