Something New: February 5, 2013
Looking for something new to read?
I’ve been waiting for Kate Locke’s The Queen is Dead, the follow up to her 2012 entry in the Immortal Empire series, God Save the Queen. These books have a strong steampunk feel and should appeal to many urban fantasy readers. It takes place in 2012 London and the undead Queen Victoria is still on the throne. The Aristocracy consists of Vampires and Werewolves, and Goblins rule the underground. God Save the Queen was a fun read and I am hoping for the same with this sequel.
Also, fans of Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series may be interested to know that she is out with a new Young Adult series, Finishing School. The first entry in the series, Etiquette and Espionage, set in the steampunkesque world of her Parasol Protectorate books is out this month. Although these books are aimed at young adults, ‘older’ adults will probably enjoy them as well. These are definitely going on my To Read list since I’m still working my way through the five book Parasol Protectorate series.
