Looking Forward To...(54)

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...

Dead Iron
Age of Steam #1
By:  Devon Monk
Due Out:  July 5, 2011

I just caught sight of this book the other day, and I have to say it caught my attention.  So many elements here.  I'm finding I'm starting to enjoy my steampunk type reads, but this one has more added to it; magic, steam, and so much for.  Check out the description here!

Goodreads Synopsis:
Welcome to a new America that is built on blood, sweat, and gears...

In steam age America, men, monsters, machines, and magic battle for the same scrap of earth and sky. In this chaos, bounty hunter Cedar Hunt rides, cursed by lycanthropy and carrying the guilt of his brother's death. Then he's offered hope that his brother may yet survive. All he has to do is find the Holder: a powerful device created by mad devisers-and now in the hands of an ancient Strange who was banished to walk this Earth.

In a land shaped by magic, steam, and iron, where the only things a man can count on are his guns, gears, and grit, Cedar will have to depend on all three if he's going to save his brother and reclaim his soul once and for all...

Well, Melissa, I think I'm with you. Who can get to Blodeuedd's house first? lol. I am hoping Blodeuedd enjoys it and will torment us with a great review!
