Upcoming and New Books

There are some good looking books coming out in the next few months:

J. R. Ward's latest, Lover Avenged just came out today in hardcover. It's the seventh book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and focuses on the character of Rehvenge.

The blurb from the Amazon.com page for Lover Avenged is:
J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a “different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing” (All About Romance)world. Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male’s loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested—and his dangerous mixed blood revealed…

Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood—even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him—and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

Naomi Novik has some new books as well:

Victory of Eagles, the fifth book in the Temeraire series is due out in mass market paperback on May 19th according to the Amazon.com page. It follows the book Empire of Ivory.

So far, I've found this to be a great series, which I usually describe as being close to Patrick O'Brien's Master and Commander series, but with dragons and less jargon. So far, the first three books in the series have been impossible to put down.

The blurb given by Amazon.com is:
For Britain, conditions are grim: Napoleon’s resurgent forces have breached the Channel and successfully invaded English soil. Napoleon’s prime objective is the occupation of London. Unfortunately, the dragon Temeraire has been removed from military service–and his captain, Will Laurence, has been condemned to death for treason. Separated by their own government and threatened at every turn by Napoleon’s forces, Laurence and Temeraire must struggle to find each other amid the turmoil of war. If only they can be reunited, master and dragon might rally Britain’s scattered resistance forces and take the fight to the enemy as never before–for king and country, and for their own liberty.

And, the next book in the series, In His Majesty's Service is due out October 27th. The description is not yet given, however.
