News and Links: Bitterblue, The Magicians TV Show, and More

Today I saw a lot of interesting SFF book related news and thought I’d share it with you. Publisher’s Weekly has an article today about Bitterblue, the forthcoming novel from Kristin Cashore that is connected to her novels Graceling and Fire.

Jacqueline Carey posted an excerpt from Saints Astray, the […]

Naamah's Blessing by Jacqueline Carey Review of Naamah’s Blessing by Jacqueline Carey

Naamah’s Blessing is the final book in Jacqueline Carey’s companion trilogy to the first two trilogies comprising Kushiel’s Legacy, which began with Kushiel’s Dart.  This newest trilogy takes place well after the end of the first two and can be read without first reading the books that came before (I’ve only read Kushiel’s Dart myself, although I really enjoyed it and should get on reading the rest of them).  The books in the Naamah trilogy before this one are Naamah’s […]

K. Jemisin).  And I was also thrilled to see Lois McMaster Bujold was nominated, although I’m not quite caught up enough in the series to have read Cryoburn […]
