Stacking the Shelves (571)

There’s a book in this stack that I’ve been waiting for, it feels like, forever. That’s Valdemar by Mercedes Lackey. I got back into Valdemar with the publication of the first book in the Founding of Valdemar series, Beyond, and I’ve been itching to learn how things got to be the way they are in Arrows of the Queen ever since. This particular book was announced earlier this year and I’ve been pretty much begging for an eARC ever since. It’s finally arrived so reading this looks to be my holiday present to myself. Possibly literally as the book will be published at the end of December.

There’s one book here that, while I didn’t pick it for the title, the title certainly put it over the top. That would be The Dead Cat Tail Assassins. I adored the author’s A Master of Djinn, and his entire Dead Djinn Universe so I’ve been eagerly anticipating whatever he wrote next. This is next, so I’d be reading it anyway, but with that title I absolutely can’t resist, especially as it seems clear from the blurbs that no cats died in the making of these assassins. People, however, are not nearly so sacrosanct.

Last but not least, two books in series that I always eagerly anticipate, The Brides of High Hill, the next book in Nghi Vo’s awesome Singing Hills Cycle, and Lost Birds, the new book in Anne Hillerman’s (continuation, extension, OMG thanks for letting us continue following these characters) Leaphorn, Chee and Manuelito series.

    1. Welcome aboard! I see from your Stacking the Shelves post that you like fantasy and romance. I’m more fantasy these days than romance but you should find some stuff in my stacks – or at least I hope so. You might want to take a look at THAT TIME I GOT DRUNK AND SAVED A DEMON which is definitely both and a whole lot of fun!
