New releases for the week of July 22nd


In the sharp and powerful third Long Price novel, Abraham continues to explore the implications of his fantasy world, in which powerful elementals called andat are enslaved by poets to work for the city-states of the Khaiem. The ongoing struggles of familiar, aging characters-poet Maati, his ex-lover Liat, the mercenary Sinja, and Otah, now the reluctant ruler of his Khaiem city-occupy much of the story, but a new voice drives the plot. Gen. Balasar Gice, of the rival Galt Empire, is convinced that the andat are a threat to mankind and wants to eliminate them for good. As Gice's plan comes to fruition, everyone must confront changes in their world that go beyond anything they'd ever imagined.

Wow, looks like a good week.

I've already pre-ordered three of those (Inverted World, An Autumn War, and The Risen Empire).

This is definitely a good week for books. :-D

I've been trying to support my local independent store as often as possible but if they don't have them on Wednesday I'm so ordering them!
