On the review front this week, I got an awesome surprise in the mail - an ARC of Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish, courtesy of Simon & Schuster Canada . . . complete with an origami owl! A modern-day Indiana Jane who reluctantly navigates a hidden supernatural world? A red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas? An artifact stolen three thousand years ago? A pack of vampires that want her dead? A weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city? Sounds like fun!
• Of Bone and Thunder: A Novel by Chris Evans
"Apocalypse Now meets The Lord of the Rings in a bold new fantasy from the acclaimed author of the Iron Elves trilogy." That tagline was enough to pique my interest right there.
• Fearsome Magics by Jonathan Strahan
Strahan's anthologies are always a high point of the year for me, just packed solid with one fantastic story after another. I've been sitting on this one for a while, but I'm anxious to get reading.
