Instead of writing one huge post of all the books I’m looking forward to in 2012, I decided to highlight some of these books in their own posts throughout the rest of this year. That way I can include as much information as I want about each one without it being an 8-mile long post and can just compile a list of links to these posts at the end of the year.

The Killing Moon by N. K. Jemisin

This is the first book in Dreamblood, a new duology by N. K. Jemisin. The Killing Moon will be released in May 2012 with The Shadowed Sun following in June 2012. I LOVED the first two books in N. K. Jemisin’s Inheritance trilogy and I enjoyed the third one so I cannot wait for these new books from her! The description makes it sound really interesting, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what N. K. Jemisin does with a new set of books.

About The Killing Moon:

The city burned beneath the Dreaming Moon.

In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers – the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh’s great temple, Ehiru – the most famous of the city’s Gatherers – must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess’ name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh’s alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill – or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.
