The Exile (The Fae, 1) – C.T. Adams

Brianna Hai runs an occult shop that sells useless trinkets to tourists—and real magic supplies to witches and warlocks. The magical painting that hangs in Brianna’s apartment is the last portal between the fae and human worlds.

A shocking magical assault on her home reveals to Brianna that her father, High King Liu of the Fae, is under attack. With the help of her gargoyle, Pug, her friend David, and Angelo, a police detective who doesn’t believe in magic, Brianna recovers what was stolen from her and becomes an unwilling potential heir to the throne.

The Revolution Trade (The Merchant Princes, 5&6) – Charles Stross

For one ex-journalist, the nightmare has just begun

Miriam Beckstein has said goodbye to her comfort zone. The transition from journalist to captive in an alternative timeline was challenging to say the least. As was discovering her long-lost family, the Clan, were world-skipping assassins. Now civil war rages in her adopted home, she’s pregnant with the heir to their throne and a splinter-group want her on their side of a desperate power struggle. But as a leader or figurehead?

Meanwhile, unknown to the Clan, the US government is on to them and preparing to exploit this knowledge. But it hadn’t foreseen a dissident Clan faction carrying nuclear devices between worlds – with the US President in their sights. The War on Terror is about to go transdimensional. But Mike Fleming, CIA agent, knows the most terrifying secret of all. His government’s true intentions.

Pocket Apocalypse (InCryptid, 4) – Seanan McGuire

Endangered, adjective: Threatened with extinction or immediate harm.
Australia, noun: A good place to become endangered.

Alexander Price has survived gorgons, basilisks, and his own family—no small feat, considering that his family includes two telepaths, a reanimated corpse, and a colony of talking, pantheistic mice. Still, he’s starting to feel like he’s got the hang of things…at least until his girlfriend, Shelby Tanner, shows up asking pointed questions about werewolves and the state of his passport. From there, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to Australia, a continent filled with new challenges, new dangers, and yes, rival cryptozoologists who don’t like their “visiting expert” very much.

Australia is a cryptozoologist’s dream, filled with unique species and unique challenges. Unfortunately, it’s also filled with Shelby’s family, who aren’t delighted by the length of her stay in America. And then there are the werewolves to consider: infected killing machines who would like nothing more than to claim the continent as their own. The continent which currently includes Alex.

Survival is hard enough when you’re on familiar ground. Alex Price is very far from home, but there’s one thing he knows for sure: he’s not going down without a fight.

Deadly Spells (Prospero’s  War, 3) – Jaye Wells

After the grisly murder of a dirty magic coven leader, Kate Prospero and The Magical Enforcement Agency team up with the local police to find the killer. But as the infighting between covens turns ugly, an all-out war brews in the slums of Babylon.

When a tenacious reporter sticks her nose in both the investigation and Prospero’s past in the covens, old ghosts resurface. The team will have to use all the weapons in their arsenal to stop the coven war and find the killer before the case brings down all their careers – and their lives.

Deadly Spells is the third novel in the Prospero’s War series that started with Dirty Magic and Cursed Moon!

  1. It’s not my kind of read but I think The Exile has a beautiful cover. I did get Deadly Spells recently though I haven’t started reading the series yet. I really need to catch up on my Jaye Wells books! Enjoy your reading!

  2. The Exile has a beautiful cover indeed. I do like books that have a great cover that immediately sucks you in. The Jaye Wells book sounds interesting. I still need to read Book 2 of that series.

  3. The Exile sounds like an interesting read. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for your review 🙂 I’ve fallen behind on Prosperor’s War series, but it’s not too late to catch up before the new one.

  4. The Exile caught my attention real quick. I’m such a cover person, if the cover gets my attention I will most likely buy, borrow and read it. Some very interesting sounding books. I have taken notes – my poor TBR pile.
