Guardian (Alternative Detective, #3) by A.J. Hartley Starless by Jacqueline Carey Nyxia Unleashed (The Nyxia Triad #2) by Scott Reintgen

Guardian is book three in the Alternate Detective series by A.J. Hartley. The covers are what first caught my attention, and then I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the second book from TOR Teen, and from there I was hooked! Everything about it screams originality to me, because I can’t say as though I’ve read anything quite like it before. I am eager to see what mystery unfolds next in this third book.

Starless is the latest from Jacqueline Carey, one of my all-time favorite authors (famous for her Kushiel Saga, which I love). It appears to be a stand-alone novel. I can’t wait to get back into this writer’s beautiful prose and immersive world building. She’s one of the most lovely writers I’ve ever read and I will continue to devour anything she chooses to write.

Nyxia Unleashed is the second book in Scott Reintgen’s Nyxia Triad series, and even I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the first book. It had great elements of competition and an interesting concept, and I think it’ll only get better as the series progresses.

Honorable Mentions: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs, Iron Gold by Pierce Brown, Last Dragon Standing by Rachel Aaron, and Child of a Mad God by R.A. Salvatore (currently reading).

Bill | 2118 comments The main book I’m looking forward to is Scourged by Kevin Hearne. The series has been very up and done but this is the 9th and last book so it will be good to get it done.

Also looking forward to The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor which I think came out the other day. It is the last of her novella trilogy which has been excellent so far.

Lastly would be Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence. Haven’t read Red Sister yet but have loved everything else by Lawrence.
