Looking Forward To... (18)

There are so many amazing books already on the shelves and new ones coming out.

For a list of books yet to be released I'm looking to get, you can also look on my right Sidebar at the list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down.  Which I just updated yesterday, and it is constantly growing.  Of course there are tones of other new books to come out that are amazing as well, but these ones are part of series I have already started or for one reason or another caught my eye (and haven't seen much on other blogs yet). But I will highlight one here each week.

(mentioned in order of Release Date then Alphabetical if there are more than one book coming out on the same date.)

The Next Book Is...

Antiphon
By: Ken Scholes
Due out:  September 14, 2010

This is a series I got started on thanks to the mediator at Barnes 'n Nobles Fantasy forum Site.  This series is truly one of the most in depth mesmerizing epic fantasy reads I have read.  The author is really talented.

This is the Third book of the series.  The books thus far go: Lamentation, Canticle, Antiphon.  I was able to get an ARC copy of this book and working on the review for it now.  I am hoping to get it done tonight, if we stay home so I can do so. :)  If you would like to read the reviews of the first two books they are here (just click the name of the book:  Lamentation, then Canticle.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The ancient past is not dead. The hand of the Wizard Kings still reaches out to challenge the Androfrancine Order, to control the magick and technology that they sought to understand and claim for their own. 

Nebios, the boy who watched the destruction of the city of Windwir, now runs the vast deserts of the world, far from his beloved Marsh Queen. He is being hunted by strange women warriors, while his dreams are invaded by warnings from his dead father. 

Jin Li Tam, queen of the Ninefold Forest, guards her son as best she can against both murderous threats, and the usurper queen and her evangelists. They bring a message: Jakob is the child of promise of their Gospel, and the Crimson Empress is on her way. 

And in hidden places, the remnants of the Androfrancine order formulate their response to the song pouring out of a silver crescent that was found in the wastes.
