New Releases: 1/19/16

Here’s what went on sale today!

Confucius Jane by Kate Lynch

Confucius Jane by Kate Lynch On leave from college, Jane Morrow has a new job, helping out in her uncle’s fortune cookie factory, and a new roommate—her precocious 11-year-old cousin. Though surrounded by her loving family and their close-knit Chinatown community, Jane feels like a colossal failure. Writing fortunes is a kind of poetry, but Jane is penning words of wisdom for strangers while wondering if she will ever have the guts to move on with her life.

When Jane meets medical student Sutton St. James at her local noodle shop, sparks fly. Sutton stands at a career crossroads: surgical residency or stem cell research overseas? The first is what her father, former Surgeon General and “America’s doctor,” has planned for her, but the latter might help find a cure for her mother’s debilitating MS. Neither would make either of them comfortable with their daughter’s sexuality. Sutton’s only certainty is that she has no time for a relationship—yet neither she nor Jane can deny the chemistry between them.

The Shadowmen by David Hagberg

The Shadowmen by David Hagberg Former director of the CIA Kirk McGarvey is no stranger to dangerous encounters. Early in his career, he came up against the Soviet Union’s deadliest agent three times, finally killing the man in a flooded tunnel beneath the ruins of a castle in Portugal.

Years have passed. The Russian’s brother, Kurshin, a Spetsnaz operator twenty-five years younger than McGarvey, vows revenge. He and McGarvey are both shadowmen–living between the real world, and the world of the deep cover spy and assassin.

NEW FROM TOR.COM:

Patchwerk David Tallerman

Patchwerk David TallermanFleeing the city of New York on the TransContinental atmospheric transport vehicle, Dran Florrian is traveling with Palimpsest-the ultimate proof of a lifetime of scientific theorizing.

When a rogue organization attempts to steal the device, however, Dran takes drastic action.

But his invention threatens to destroy the very fabric of this and all other possible universes, unless Dran-or someone very much like him-can shut down the machine and reverse the process.

NOW IN PAPERBACK:

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab Kell is one of the last Travelers-magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes, connected by one magical city.

There’s Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, and with one mad king-George III. Red London, where life and magic are revered-and where Kell was raised alongside Rhys Maresh, the rougish heir to a flourishing empire. White London-a place where people fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. And once upon a time, there was Black London. But no one speaks of that now.

NEW IN MANGA:

Golden Time Vol. 2 by Yuyuko Takemiya and Umechazuke

The Testament of Sister New Devil Vol. 1 by Tetsuto Uesu and Miyakokasiwa

Though surrounded by her loving family and their close-knit Chinatown community, Jane feels like a colossal failure.

CHAPTER ONE

JANE WOKE TO THE clickity-clack of her cousin Minetta’s fingertips skittering across her laptop keyboard. The noise sounded like a herd of mouse-sized elephants. If there was a Hell and she ended up there, being forced to listen to this for eternity would definitely be her punishment. Gritting her teeth, she tried to burrow deeper beneath the covers and ignore the persistent sound, but to no avail. There couldn’t be all that many eleven-year-old touch typists in the world. How had she ended up with one of them for a roommate?

Opening one eye, she glanced at the clock on the nightstand between their beds. Six forty-five. Jane groaned and threw one arm over her face.

“Oh, stop,” Min said without a break in her typing. “You should be awake already.”

“Have I mentioned that I can’t wait until you hit puberty and start wanting to sleep all the time?”

“Be quiet. You’re stifling my creative flow.”
