Looking Forward To...(45)

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.)

Next Book Is...

The Sorceress's Orc
By:  Elaine Corvidae
Due Out:  April 13, 2011

I found this book through the authors site, a site in which I've been stalking as I love the sounds of her books.  I've not had the opportunity yet to read any of her books, but I keep looking and wishing I had them to start.  One of these days I will get them and start them.  I promise.  And in that is why I keep stalking her site to remind myself why I want them.

I saw this book and thought it sounded great.  It's an all new fantasy world and series she is doing.  Hmmm, this just might be where I need to start at. :)

Synopsis from Authors Site:
Giavolo: Proudest of the city-states and home to the great university, where the Magical Sciences are taught alongside more mundane studies. The city has been at war for longer than any of its inhabitants have been alive.
Vervain: Mistress of the Magical Sciences, she is dismayed to find herself assigned a bodyguard after divination reveals an ill-defined threat to the university’s teachers. Even worse, the bodyguard is an orc.
Riyu: Vervain’s orc bodyguard is determined to save her life—if she’ll let him.
Brighthand: When this sinister figure attacks the university and kidnaps Vervain’s partner, it’s up to Vervain and Riyu to get him back…or die in the attempt.

You don’t have to be a 20-something babe to save the world.
