One of the first things english-speakers notice when they go to a german-speaking country is that Germans (and Swiss and Austrians) really don't like their mail. In light of this, I thought it'd be funny to title this post "The Mail" in German.
It was a really great week this week, I received anywhere from 1 to 5 books each day. It was like Christmas...or I guess really more like Hanukkah. :)
The Ninth Avatar by Todd Newton
When the slain march, prophecy will be fulfilled.
Thanks to the good folks at Trapdoor books. Todd is a regular at SFFWorld and I love the cover, so I pretty much had to give this a read. Thanks again.
The Mirrored Heavens [US] [UK] by David J. Williams
EdiFanoB from Edi's Book Lighthouse and I will be doing a combined review on this book some time in May, so be ready for that.
In the 22nd century, the first wonder of a brave new world is the Phoenix Space Elevator, designed to give mankind greater access to the frontier beyond Earth. Cooperatively built by the United States and the Eurasian Coalition, the Elevator is also a grand symbol of superpower alliance following a second cold war. And it’s just been destroyed.
This is the sequel to The Mirrored Heavens, which I'll be reviewing on my own. :)
The third and final installment, The Machinery of Light will be out in May. Thanks again David!
Prophets [US] [UK] by S. Andrew Swann
I won Heretics (Apotheosis Book 2) a while back so I figured I'd better buy the first.
The Eyes of God [US] [UK] by John Marco
I've been a fan of John Marco sine I read his Tyrants and Kings series and I thought I'd better finally get to this series.
Bauchelain and Korbal Broach [US] [UK] by Steven Erikson
I'm a huge Erikson Fan, this is a collection of 3 novellas set in his Malazan Book of the Fallen world.
Horns [US] [UK] by Joe Hill
This has been getting rave reviews and although I'm not usually a horror fan, the reviews have converted me. Plus, I guess it doesn't hurt when you don't have to pay. :P
Avempartha [US] [UK] by Michael J. Sullivan
I loved The Crown Conspiracy (Book 1) and this is supposed to be even better. Thanks Jackie from Housewife Blues.
Black Hills [US] [UK] by Dan Simmons
This will be my first foray into Simmons' work and again I've heard nothing but good things. This comes from The Cajun Book Lady and Hachette.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter [US] [UK] by Seth Grahame-Smith
I'm a few CD's in and to be honest I'm not that impressed. It reminds me a lot of The Historian and I was not a fan.
