October 30 New Releases, only a billion years late

2 Nov

Hey, guys, hey! So, I dropped off the blogging universe for a while there. Between vacations and job applications and job interviews and etc. etc. etc. I just couldn’t get it together. So, without further ado, here are this week’s new releases that I am at least moderately stoked for:

Title: Rebel Heart
Author: Moira Young
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Genre: Science Fiction
Blurb: It seemed so simple: Defeat the Tonton, rescue her kidnapped brother, Lugh, and then order would be restored to Saba’s world. Simplicity, however, has proved to be elusive. Now, Saba and her family travel west, headed for a better life and a longed-for reunion with Jack. But the fight for Lugh’s freedom has unleashed a new power in the dust lands, and a formidable new enemy is on the rise. What is the truth about Jack? And how far will Saba go to get what she wants? In this much-anticipated follow-up to the riveting Blood Red Road, a fierce heroine finds herself at the crossroads of danger and destiny, betrayal and passion.
Excitement Factor: OMG (Seriously, I have been waiting for this for freaking ever. I wish I could do some sort of magic spell to make my hold come in faster. Or I could, you know, buy it.)

Title: Ruins
Author: Orson Scott Card
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genre: Science Fiction
Blurb: When Rigg and his friends crossed the Wall between the only world they knew and a world they could not imagine, he hoped he was leading them to safety. But the dangers in this new wallfold are more difficult to see. Rigg, Umbo, and Param know that they cannot trust the expendable, Vadesh—a machine shaped like a human, created to deceive—but they are no longer certain that they can even trust one another. But they will have little choice. Because although Rigg can decipher the paths of the past, he can’t yet see the horror that lies ahead: A destructive force with deadly intentions is hurtling toward Garden. If Rigg, Umbo, and Param can’t work together to alter the past, there will be no future.
Excitement Factor: Maybe, if I’ve got nothing better on my shelf.

And that’s it, folks. Honestly, I think Rebel Heart has me so excited I can’t even think about anything else.

    Ooh that Rebel Heart one sounds good (side note – Saba means grandfather in Hebrew, for whatever that’s worth). And a new Orson Scott Card? Hm.

      I am so anxious for my hold on Rebel Heart to come in that I’m tempted to buy the dang thing. If you haven’t read the first book, Blood Red Road, you HAVE TO before you look at this. It’s kind of a Mad Max-ish future wasteland with gladiators and a brutally badass heroine who is deliciously unlikable and hot make outs and fun experimentation with the way a totally illiterate society would speak. LOVE.
