I had been thinking about picking up the next Kate Daniels book this week but didn’t since I’m not letting myself read it until after reviewing the first one (almost there – just need to write a review of The Thief and revise a draft of A Local Habitation first). Two more review copies showed up this week, though.
Changeless by Gail Carriger
Changeless is the second book in the Parasol Protectorate series and is coming out in April (although Amazon will be shipping it starting March 30). The first book in this series, Soulless, was a lot of fun to read so I’m really looking forward to this one. It was a humorous story featuring vampires and werewolves in Victorian London and a heroine born without a soul.
I’m going to skip the blurb for this one just because it does contain a spoiler for the end of the first book. If you’ve read Soulless and would like to read it (or don’t care about spoilers), you can read it here.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a pretty neat video showing how the cover for the third book (Blameless) was put together. I especially liked the revision process.
Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez
Divine Misfortune is a comedic fantasy coming out in hardcover on March 26. My husband has already read this one and is planning to write a review of it, although I’m not really sure when he is going to have time to do so.
DIVINE MISFORTUNE is a story of gods and mortals—in worship, in love, and at parties.
Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion – again-it’s time to take matters into their own hands. And look online.
Choosing a god isn’t as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they found Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune.
Oh — and can he crash on their couch for a few days?
Throw in a heartbroken love goddess and an ancient deity bent on revenge and not even the gods can save Teri and Phil.
