A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, a thrilling novel that kicks off a fantasy series with an entirely new mythology—complete with shape-shifting bards, fire-wielding giants, and children who can speak to astonishing beasts

MOTHER AND WARRIOR
Tallynd is a soldier who has already survived her toughest battle: losing her husband. But now she finds herself on the front lines of an invasion of giants, intent on wiping out the entire kingdom, including Tallynd’s two sons—all that she has left. The stakes have never been higher. If Tallynd fails, her boys may never become men.

SCHOLAR AND SPY
Dervan is an historian who longs for a simple, quiet life. But he’s drawn into intrigue when he’s hired to record the tales of a mysterious bard who may be a spy or even an assassin for a rival kingdom. As the bard shares his fantastical stories, Dervan makes a shocking discovery: He may have a connection to the tales, one that will bring his own secrets to light.

REBEL AND HERO
Abhi’s family have always been hunters, but Abhi wants to choose a different life for himself. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, Abhi soon learns that his destiny is far greater than he imagined: a powerful new magic thrust upon him may hold the key to defeating the giants once and for all—if it doesn’t destroy him first.

Set in a magical world of terror and wonder, this novel is a deeply felt epic of courage and war, in which the fates of these characters intertwine—and where ordinary people become heroes, and their lives become legend.

Movie Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

May 7, 2017 at 6:08 pm | Posted in Marvel, Movies, Reviews, scifi/fantasy | Leave a comment

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 delivers up a solid 2 hours and 16 minutes of entertainment. If you’re a fan of the film, this is a must see. Here’s our spoiler free review.

Without spoiling anything, the center premise of this movie revolves around Starlord finding out who his dad is and meeting him. Around that central plot is subplot with Yondu and the Ravagers, a side mission for the Sovereign (involving the octopus creature in the movie trailer), and then smaller character plots with each of the Guardians. There’s tons of attention given to the characters which leads to lots of great moments, be they laughs or more serious scenes of reflection and discovery. If you love baby Groot, then you’ll be glad to know that there’s lots of him. In fact each of the members of the cast gets an equal amount of attention. It makes for a very entertaining story.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells is out today in paperback and digital formats.

In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.

On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid—a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.

But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it’s up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.
