Ana Must Read or DIE:
We heard about this one via the always awesome crew over at Fantasy Book Critic, and Ana has decided she MUST have this book. Immediately.
Covers and Other Must-Have Books:
The cover for Don’t Tempt Me is out (thanks to Katiebabs as usual) – another book Ana must read or die.
And Thea cannot wait to read Nekropolis by Tim Waggoner. I mean, just look at this freaking sweet cover.
Here’s the rundown:
Meet Matt Richter. Private eye. Zombie.
His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis. And in this first case, Richter must help a delectable half-vampire named Devona recover a legendary artifact known as the Dawnstone, before it’s used to destroy Nekropolis itself. That is, if he can survive the myriad horrors that infest the city itself.
Pulp and proud, cracking wise like we just dug up the rotting corpse of Dashiell Hammett and put him back to work at his typewriter, Nekropolis is just the first of a trio of fabulous urban fantasies Angry Robot will be bringing you from the mighty Tim Waggoner. Originally published as a limited run novella, the expanded Nekropolis is the definitive version of this massively entertaining series opener.
And that’s about it for now! Time to get back to basketball. Until next time…
