April 23 New Releases

25 Apr

So, perhaps some of you have noticed that I haven’t written a new release post for a while. This is for a few reasons, namely:

a) I had three weeks worth of visitors, so time was at a premium;

b) Battlestar Galactica is THE BEST, and;

c) There has literally been nothing published that has even remotely interested me. However, that trend ends this week, dear readers!

10165761Title: Quintana of Charyn
Author: Melina Marchetta
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Genre: Fantasy
Page Count: 528
Blurb: Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi and his companions travel through Charyn searching for Quintana and building an army that will secure her unborn child’s right to rule. While in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana of Charyn and Isaboe of Lumatere come face-to-face in a showdown that will result in heartbreak for one and power for the other. The complex tangle of bloodlines, politics, and love introduced in Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles coalesce into an engrossing climax in this final volume.
Excitement factor: OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Seriously, I’ve had a hold on this book since I ordered it for my library.)(Also, BLOW HER OUT OF THE WATER, ISABOE. I mean, Quintana is alright, but if one woman has to be broken then I choose her, no competition.)

16248073Title: The Silver Dream
Author: Neil Gaiman, Michael Reaves, and Mallory Reaves
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: Fantasy/Science Fiction
Page Count: 256
Blurb: After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey Harker and his fellow InterWorld freedom fighters are now on a mission to maintain peace between the rival powers of magic and science who seek to control all worlds. When a stranger named Acacia somehow follows Joey back to InterWorld’s base, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she’s from—or how she knows so much about InterWorld.
Dangerous times lie ahead for Joey and the mission. There’s a traitor hidden among them, and if Joey has any hope of saving InterWorld, the multiverse, and the mission, he’s going to have to rely on his wits—and, just possibly, on the mysterious Acacia Jones.
Excitement factor: yes, please!
