Looking Forward To... (26)

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 ever growing list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down.  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..


Law of the Broken Earth
By:  Rachel Neumeier
Due Out:  December 1, 2010

I have read the first two books in this trilogy and enjoyed reading them as they have a classic fantasy feel with a new twist of Griffins.  The first two books could possibly be read individually as they kind of struck me as individual stories fore they where in two different areas of the same world.  So, I am curious to get to the last book in the trilogy.  And since I started the trilogy, I just have to finish it.  And the griffins are determined to not be stopped or mistreated by mankind in any way.  I have to see what happens with the griffins and mankind.  Will the work out an agreement or not...  Will they all survive or destroy each other?

Good Reads Synopsis:
In Feierabiand, in the wide green Delta, far from the burning heat of the griffin's desert, Mienthe's peaceful life has been shaken. Tan - clever, cynical, and an experienced spy - has brought a deadly secret out of the neighboring country of Linularinum.

Now, as three countries and two species rush toward destruction, Mienthe fears that even her powerful cousin Bertaud may be neither able nor even willing to find a safe path between the secret Linularinum would kill to preserve and the desperate ferocity of the griffins. But can Mienthe?

And, in the end, will Tan help her . . . or do everything in his power to stand in her way?

  2. Are these YA books? The cover looks fantastic. I might have to check the series out based on cover art alone.

  3. Melissa - Glad you like what you see here. :) I love all these covers. They are all great looking and eye catching. They don't have any shiny material, but if they did - in the right spots - I think they would be amazing.

    Sarah - Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I don't believe these are YA. But so far there is no sex or strong language, I think YAs could read them. They are very straight forward classic style fantasy. But I enjoy them for the mysterious griffins and feel for them. They leave an uneasy feel to the characters, almost scared of them. All the covers are amazing looking. I really love the covers too.
