Looking Forward To...

Orbit Books has announced this First book of a new trilogy at their site.  Click here to read more.

Here is a short blip Orbit published for what the story is about:
As they approach adulthood, Cat Barahal and her cousin Bee think they understand the society they live in and their place within it. At a select academy they study new airship technologies and the dawning Industrial Revolution, but magical forces still rule. Drawn into a labyrinth of politics involving blood and old feuds, Cat is betrayed by her family and forced to marry a powerful Cold Mage. As she is carried away to live a new life, fresh dangers threaten her every move and secrets form a language she cannot read. At least, not yet.

This sounds like an interesting read.  Orbit mentioned mages and dragons (which always seem to catch my eye) and just a little drop of steampunk added into a Victorian-era feeling story.  Sounds like something I may like.

Cold Magic, the first book in the trilogy, is due out in September 2010.

Hope you all enjoy!


  1. I loved the cover on the book and it does sound interesting. I might have to check it out when it releases.

  2. Zia - The cover does look GREAT! :) Another well done one. Over at Orbit they mention the thought the cover was well done with just a touch of everything. So I am hoping it gives clues as to what is in the story. :) Thanks!

  3. I'm also looking forward to this one. Though to my chagrin, seeing this book made me realize that I have forgotten about so many authors whose books I used to love. Kate Elliott was one of my favorite authors when I was reading her Crown of Stars series, but I had forgotten about her and had never read anything else of hers (though I plan on fixing this) There are also some other authors who I realize that I have forgotten about, and who I really need to catch up with.

  4. Love the cover on this one and it sounds interesting! Hope you get it and then you can let me know how good it is! :)

  5. Simcha - I am going to have to look into Kate Elliott's other series. Sounds like they may be worth looking at if you enjoyed them. Thank you! And good luck getting caught up with those authors. :)

    Melissa - :D We are just rotten to each other. ;) I will definitely let you know about the book. I will have to make you drool over it. :D LOL. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Gorgeous cover! And the story sounds intriguing as well. Nice pick!

  7. Hey Alexia! :)Glad you like the look and sounds of the book. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. My schedule is filling up alread for the rest of the year. :)
