CELEBRATING MAY DAY WITH 4 NEW RELEASES!

 It is 1955, and the three Fayette sisters have lived their whole lives in the enchanting French Quarter of New Orleans. Though neglected by their parents, they share a close bond with one another?from afternoons in their small, shared bedroom, to trying to speak with ghosts beneath the sweeping trees in their garden. When the middle sister Constance disappears, the family believes she has run away, as she has done before; it is only the youngest?fourteen-year-old Bonavere (known as Bonnie)?who suspects there is more to it. Met only with grief from her family and resistance from the police, Bonnie embarks on a journey to bring her sister home, venturing through fabled Red Honey Swamp, and the city’s vibrant and brutal history. Unravelling the layers of her sister’s secret life, Bonnie discovers a pattern of girls found half-mad in the Louisiana swampland, and a connection to the wealthy, notorious Lasalle family. To rescue her sister, she must confront the realities of true violence, and the very nature of insanity.

When does a secret admirer become a stalker? When chocolates on the doorstep give way to the sound of an intruder on the stairs? When the victim’s friends are waylaid in the dark and beaten bloody? When she receives photographs memorializing these events? Or when people start dying?

Prisoner of Midnight (A James Asher Vampire Novel Book 8) by [Hambly, Barbara] Vampire Don Simon Ysido has been captured and held aboard a ship heading to the US to act as a slave, and Dr Lydia Asher must stop it . . . at any cost.

SERPENTINE by LAURELL K. HAMILTON

Serpentine (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #26)

I went back and forth on reading this one. The last few have just been more of the same. I was interested in this Serpentine twist. Which showed up at the end of the book.

Besides that is was just more of the same. Anita having sex with lots of different species.

In my opinion the only plot anymore is the sex. I even had my husband read it, as he also has read them all, and he was disappointed too.

I wish she would do more with the Merry Gentry books, but this will be the last Anita Blake one I read. There comes a time when it’s just over. This is that time.

 

BLOOD COMMUNION by ANNE RICE

Blood Communion (The Vampire Chronicles, #13)

The Vampire Chronicles continue with a riveting, rich saga–part adventure, part fairy-tale–of Prince Lestat and the story of the Blood Communion as he tells the tale of his coming to rule the vampire world and the eternal struggle to find belonging, a place in the universe for the undead, and how, against his will, he must battle the menacing, seemingly unstoppable force determined to thwart his vision and destroy the entire vampire netherworld.

I have read every book Anne has put out. I love her world of vampires and the opulence of their world. And of course who doesn’t love the Brat Prince himself?

In this telling of the Blood Communion and how he came to rule the undead and now is fighting for the entire vampire world, we find most of our favorite characters and we move from Europe to Louisiana with elegance and violence.

As much as I am a fan of her work, I’m rather over it. It feels different. Not as compelling as the first books. I really wasn’t interested in this one, but my husband loved it even though he commented it was really just a smash-up of all the others.

I don’t think I could give this one more than 3 stars and for the first time I did not pre-order the book but waited for it to come out at the library.

Coming Soon To A Bookstore Near You

What Are You Reading This Week?

I have absolutely no idea how these got dropped in my Netgalley Shelf! But I am happy to see them there!

 “Marrying forbidden love, devoted friendship, and the supernatural with Palombo’s signature passion for music, storytelling, and heartbreaking choices, The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel enchants with a concoction of love, longing, and loss plucked from the bones of one of our most enduring and haunting legends.” – Erin Lindsay McCabe, USA Today bestselling author of I Shall Be Near to You

 There’s only so long you can run for your life.

 

 The follow-up to her critically acclaimed Lie to Me, J.T. Ellison’s Tear Me Apart is the powerful story of a mother willing to do anything to protect her daughter even as their carefully constructed world unravels around them.

 The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide…

Sometimes life’s most magical journeys bring you back to where it all began…From USA Today bestselling author Emily March comes The Christmas Wishing Tree, an enchanting account of the magic and miracle of Christmas.

I was thrilled to see J.T.Ellison in this group! One of my favorites and with this extreme heat maybe the Christmas Wishing Tree will make us feel a bit cooler!

What is on your TBR pile this week?
