Fresh Batch, posted weekly, keeps you up to date on the hottest releases of the upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

Laini Taylor
Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone #3
Publication date: April 8th 2014
by Little, Brown & Company

Goodreads Purchase

By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

Common enemy, common cause.

When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz … something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

What power can bruise the sky?

From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?

  5. Amanda @ Book Badger

    There’s a lot of books I’d love to get a hold off, Plus One, Far From You, Breakfast Served Anytime, and more. I can’t wait to see all the reviews come in for them, it’s exciting and I want to know if they’re worth it 🙂

  6. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    So many books!! I am going to meet Laini Taylor on April 24th!! She is doing a signing in my area and I am so excited. I am going to buy Dreams of Gods and Mosters then so I can have it signed! I am reading Far From You now and it’s good.

  7. Kayla @ The Thousand Lives

    WOW that’s a blast from my childhood to see Warriors up there. I wonder how many series she’s written by now? It’s been YEARS since I picked up one of those books, but they were some of my favorites as a kid!

  8. nea

    Oh, Giselle, I hope you are ok and that everything is good 🙂 Thank you so sharing the new releases 🙂 🙂

  9. Pili

    Wow, so many awesome books coming out next week! I’m dying for my preorders to get here, and I’m totally keeping everything crossed for my hardcover of Dreams of Gods and Monsters arriving next week from TBD and not torturing me and making me wait for another extra week!

  10. Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews

    Dreams of Gods & Monsters!! GAH! Gimme gimme gimme, I hope my pre-order ships early lol I can’t take it anymore >.< I still need to get into my copy of Sea of Shadows (can't remember if you read that one yet…I know you must have an arc somewheres ha!) but I hope to soon, I'm really curious! Rebel Belle looks pretty awesome too. LOL seeing the cover for the new Warrior book takes me back, remember when that's all I used to read?! Curiosity is intriguing too. Lots of good looking releases this week 😀

    Thanks Giselle and Jenni for listing my novel, STEAL THE NORTH, on your website this week. I am so excited for my book to launch into the world and get into the hands of readers! STEAL THE NORTH is basically a (teenage) love story and family saga set on the edge of an Indian reservation in Washington State. Thanks again!!
