We have a winner!
Congrats to Tamer in Texas, the winner of our 50 Years of Pern celebration giveaway! Your Amazon gift card is on its way!
But all fantasy readers win today because we have three brand new HUGE releases to be stoked about! Muse of Nightmares, A Map of Days, and (of course) Dragon’s Code!
Muse of Nightmares, by Laini Taylor
“The highly anticipated, thrilling sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer, from National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.”
“Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the New York Times bestseller, Strange the Dreamer.”
We read Strange the Dreamer together, and we both fell in love with it. It immediately became one of our absolute, all-time favorites. Deeply sympathetic characters. Magnificent world building. Elegant writing. And a beautiful story. Muse of Nightmares is easily one of our most highly anticipated releases of 2018, and it’s finally here!!!
A Map of Days, by Ransom Riggs
“The #1 bestselling series returns with a thrilling new story arc set in America!”
“Vintage photographs reveal the never-before-seen world of peculiar America with a stunning addition—full-color images.”
We’re a book behind on reading this series, but that would never stop us from wanting the next one! (Hey, it’s called The Daily Bookaholic for a reason.) The photos alone are always worth the price of admission, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it! If you’ve never picked up an actual copy of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, you absolutely must. You have to see it to believe it.
(And even then, you still might not believe it. You’ll see.)
Dragon’s Code, by Gigi McCaffrey
“A new hero emerges in a divided world as one of sci-fi’s most beloved series—Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern—relaunches with this original adventure from Anne’s daughter, Gigi McCaffrey.”
“In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the Dragonriders of Pern series, Gigi does her mother proud, adding to the family tradition of spinning unputdownable tales that recount the adventures of the brave inhabitants of a distant planet who battle the pitiless adversary known as Thread.”
By now, you all know how we feel about Pern, and about this book. (You can read our 5-star review here!) The depth and breadth of this world have never been anything less than stunning, and we even got to ride a dragon and fight Thread again here and there. Like the Oldtimers, we’d be heartbroken if that part of our lives ever looked like it was ending for good. So thank you, Gigi McCaffrey, for keeping that dream alive. And our thanks to the publisher as well for letting us read it that much sooner!!!
(If you haven’t read anything in Pern yet, start with this 5-star read, also one of Erin’s absolute, all-time favorites!)
