Alle udgivelsesdatoer er de engelske (UK), og de kan variere lidt fra de amerikanske udgivelsesdatoer. Nogle af udgivelserne er en del af serier, og kan indeholde spoilers fra de tidligere bøger.
I denne omgang slår jeg de engelske og danske sammen, for December lader til at være en ret død måned på nye-udgivelser-fronten i år. Jeg ved ikke om jeg bare var vildt dårlig til at lede, men det var virkelig minimalt hvad jeg kunne finde af interesse.
Vi starter med den eneste danske af interesse jeg kunne støve op:
- Titel: Falkens Øje
- Serie: Bronzedolken #3
- Forfatter: Michelle Paver
- Forlag: Alvilda
- Udgivelse: 1/12
Eventyret begynder for 3500 år siden …Hylas er flygtet fra Thalakrea efter det store vulkanudbrud, og han ankommer til øen Keftiu, Pirras fødeø. Solen er forsvundet, og himlen er dækket af aske, planterne visner, og fiskene dør. En kæmpe-tsunami har ødelagt store dele af øen, og nu hærger pest og hungersnød. Men Hylas beslutter sig alligevel for at gå i land for at lede efter Pirra. En gammel, enøjet kvinde fortæller ham, at Pirras mor, ypperstepræstinden Yassassara, er død. Men hvad med Pirra? Hylas ved, at det er livsfarligt at opholde sig på øen. Men han giver ikke op, før han har fundet hende … levende eller død.
Falkens øje er tredje bog i historien om Bronzedolken.
”Fængslende.” – Telegraph
”Denne tredje bog er mindst lige så god som de to første.” – Litteraturmagazinet
”Så rig og medrivende, at du ikke kan undgå at forelske dig i den!” – Goodreads
Og så går vi over til de engelske. Vi starter med den 23 (!) bog i Anita Blake Vampire Hunter -serien.
- Titel: Jason
- Serie: Anita Blake Vampire Hunter #23
- Forfatter: Laurell K. Hamilton
- Forlag: Headline
- Udgivelse: 2/12
“Enjoying pain with your pleasure is something you either get, or you don’t. If you get it, then you don’t really need it explained, because you know how good it feels, and if you don’t get it then no amount of talking is going to convince you it makes sense.”
But sometimes you have to explain the unexplainable, especially if the love of your life needs to understand, or she’ll leave you. Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake’s best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She’s accomplished, beautiful, and she’s crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong?
J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things. She plans to keep sleeping with women, because Jason can’t meet that need, just like she can’t meet Jason’s need for rough sex and bondage. J.J. doesn’t understand why Jason isn’t content to go elsewhere for a need she can’t fulfil, so Jason asks Anita to help him explain.
Anita is having her own relationship growing pains with her only female lover ever, Jade. Jason suggests that J.J. might be able to help Anita with her girl problem, while she helps him with his kinky explanations. With some encouragement from a few other lovers in Anita’s life she reluctantly agrees, and J. J. makes plans to fly into town for an experience that none of them will ever forget.

In GATHERING DARKNESS, book three of the New York Times bestselling Falling Kingdoms series, the stakes have never been higher as three teams push forward on a race to find the Kindred, the four elemental crystals possessing ancient all-powerful magic, first:
Prince Magnus has just witnessed torture, death, and miracles during the bloody confrontation that decimated the rebel forces. Now he must choose between family and justice as his father, the cruel King Gaius, sets out to conquer all of Mytica. All Gaius needs now are the Kindred – the four elemental crystals that give godlike powers to their owner. But the King of Blood is not the only one hunting for this ancient, storied magic…
• THE KRAESHIANS join the hunt. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the wealthy kingdom across the Silver Sea, charm and manipulate their way to the Kindred, proving to be more ruthless than perhaps even the King of Blood himself.
• THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo and vengeful Jonas lead them, slaying with sweetness, skill, and a secret that can control Lucia’s overpowering magic – all so they can use the Kindred to win back their fallen kingdoms.
• THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally in the flesh with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia’s powers to unveil the Kindred.
The only certainty in the dark times is that whoever finds the magic first will control the fate of Mytica… but fate can be fickle when magic is involved.

The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.
Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.
Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet’s rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.
Rebellion is in Flynn’s blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.
Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

After surviving the Hunger Games-like Testing, Eva becomes the Aerie’s first female Archon. The second installment of the Books of Eva continue the harrowing struggle between past and present, Aerie and Boundary.
Eva is the first Maiden in Aerie history to train as an Archon: a sacred leader of the New North. All eyes are watching as she prepares to uncover the Relics of the evil past. Wounds remain: both from the harrowing Testing and the murder of her brother, Eamon. But she has learned to feign grace. And although she is betrothed to Jasper, she carries a secret. Lukas, a Boundary dweller and former servant, still visits her in the dead of night. And he alone may know who killed her twin brother.
Her feelings for Lukas are forbidden. Even more troubling is his conviction that she is the Angakkuq, a mystical figure destined to destroy the Aerie. Eva tries to focus on finding Eamon’s killer, but on her very first Archon expedition, she uncovers the Genesis: the legendary ship that brought the Founders to the New North. What they find in the Genesis upsets the fragile balance between the Aerie and the Boundary, and threatens to destroy their entire civilization. Eva’s world is shattered, but she may be the only one who can—as both Archon and Angakkuq—prevent a war that would take everything from her.
