New Releases: 2/23/16

Here’s what went on sale today!

The Fourth Horseman by David Hagberg

The Fourth Horseman by David Hagberg Pakistan is torn apart by riots in the streets. The CIA sends Pakistan expert David Haaris to meet with leaders of the military intelligence apparatus which all but controls the country, to try to head off what appears to be the disintegration of the government.

But Haaris has other ideas. After disguising himself, he beheads the president in front of a mob of ten thousand people and declares himself the new Messiah. He says he will bring peace and stability to the country by allying with the Taliban.

At that moment, miles to the south on the border with Afghanistan, one of four stolen nuclear weapons is detonated.

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagent international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

Another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. Black London is rising again–and so to keep magic’s balance, another London must fall.

Good Girls by Glen Hirshberg

Good Girls by Glen Hirschberg Fates collide in a small town where fear and love are two sides of the same coin and life and death lie far too close together.

Three-time International Horror Guild and Shirley Jackson Award Winner Glen Hirshberg brings his flair for the grim, grisly, and emotionally harrowing to Good Girls, the standalone sequel to Motherless Child.

The Ironsmith by Nicholas Guild

The Ironsmith by Nicholas Guild This is the story of Joshua, a carpenter from the village of Nazareth who is called to preach the coming of God’s judgment. This is the story of his ministry and its terrible end, seen through the eyes of his kinsman and closest friend, Noah the ironsmith. Noah, a pious man but one who understands the darkness of a world in which treachery and murder are the common currency of power, is prepared to risk his own life to save Joshua’s.
The product of twenty years of research and a deep understanding of the ancient world, Nicholas Guild’s The Ironsmith is a story for everyone who cares about the origins of faith and the mystery of God’s relationship with man.

UFO Hunters Book Two by William J. Birnes

UFO Hunters Book Two by William J. Birnes A young girl digs up a thousand-year-old humanoid skull from a cave in northern Mexico. But the skull contains no human DNA.

An amateur videographer taking footage of lights over Mount Shasta, California, captures a giant floating triangle on tape. It’s not a plane. It’s not a helicopter. What is it?

These questions and more are answered in UFO Hunters Book Two. Using eyewitness accounts and information from footage never before seen on television, author William Birnes takes readers on the hunt for the real truth about flying saucers, what they are, and why they’re here. This is the second companion to the popular HISTORY series and should delight fans in every way.

NEW FROM TOR.COM

The Absconded Ambassador by Michael R. Underwood

The Absconded Ambassador by Michael R. UnderwoodFiction is more important than you think. When stories go wrong, the Genrenauts step in to prevent the consequences from rippling into our so-called real world.

When a breach is discovered in Science Fiction World, rookie genrenaut Leah Tang gets her first taste of space flight.

A peace treaty is about to be signed on space station Ahura-3, guaranteeing the end of hostilities between some of the galaxy’s most ferocious races, but when the head architect of the treaty is unexpectedly kidnapped, it’s up to Leah and her new colleagues to save the day.

At any cost.

NOW IN PAPERBACK:

The Galahad Archives Book One: Leaving Earth by Dom Testa

The Galahad Archives Book One by Don Testa The Galahad Archives Book One: Leaving Earth is the first of three thrilling two-book omnibus editions in the Galahad Archives series for young adults by Dom Testa.

When the tail of the comet Bhaktul flicks through the Earth’s atmosphere, deadly particles are left in its wake. Suddenly, mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Only those under the age of eighteen seem to be immune. A renowned scientist proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, the Galahad and its crew—none over the age of sixteen—is launched.

NEW IN MANGA:

Tomodachi x Monster Vol. 1 by Yoshihiko Inui

Tomodachi x Monster Vol. 1 by Yoshihiko Inui In a small mountainous village in rural Japan, strange creatures lurk. A young boy, friendless and neglected, hears a distant voice calling out to him. He soon discovers a new “friend” that will transform his life forever. He learns that there is a hidden world of monsters that seek to befriend young children, and together, they must enter a horrifying death match. Watch what really happens when kids with no conscience get hold of monstrous friends to do their bidding.

Sneak Peek: Good Girls

Good GirlsIn Good Girls by Glen Hirshberg, Rebecca is still in college and the “responsible one.” She keeps her friends from getting too crazy—though Human Curling is kind of out there. She’s a safety valve for Joel, her foster father, and helps out at Halfmoon House. Mostly Rebecca takes care of everyone else. She works at the university’s crisis center, doing whatever she can to help the troubled souls who call the hotline. Until the night he calls.

The Whistler is hunting Jess. She killed his Mother…and Natalie, who was his “destiny.” Fates collide in a small town where fear and love are two sides of the same coin and life and death lie far too close together. Please enjoy this excerpt of Good Girls, releasing February 23rd.

1

In the heart of the hollow, at the mouth of the Delta, the monsters were dancing. Their shadows slid over the billowing green walls of the revival tent, rolling together, flowing apart. To Aunt Sally, rocking and smoking in her favorite chair in the shadows of her pavilion tent out back, their movements seemed hypnotic, lulling, like nimbus clouds across the moon, rainwater down glass. They kept her company, the shadows did. They were all the company she had ever kept or needed. Looking past the hollow down the mossy bank, she could see the moon out for its nightly stroll down the slow-sliding surface of the Mississippi, through the clustered cattails, the swamp roses and spider lilies. As she watched, the moon seemed to turn, as it did every night, and nod in her direction.

Howdy, neighbor. Mind if I smoke?

Almost peaceful, Aunt Sally thought.
