    Out of Darkness Rising by Gillian Bronte Adams is a new fantasy novel releasing soon! It’s cover is simply jaw-dropping, and Gillian has already proved herself a beautiful writer in Orphan’s Song.

    Rooglewood Press is releasing their second collection of fairytale retellings that include genres of fantasy and sci-fi, Five Enchanted Roses. The first collection, Five Enchanted Slippers, was simply amazing. And its fascinating sci-fi retelling is continuing in a series called The Cendrillon Cycle by Stephanie Ricker.

    Random search isn’t the best method.

    My novel Servant was just added to the library here at Speculative Faith. It involves exorcism and spiritual gifts that are so refined they’re almost like superpowers.  (Regrettably, unlike my characters, I have no superpowers at all.)

    I just finished Emissary by Thomas Locke (aka Davis Bunn). It’s the first in its series and I enjoyed it! Epic fantasy complete with wizards and elves.

    Breeder by Casey Hays came out a year ago, and the sequel came out in November. I haven’t read the sequel yet, but I really liked the first book. Yes it’s another dystopia, but it didn’t feel trite.

    How many people are familiar with Shelley Adina? I really enjoyed her steampunk series – – Lady of Devices. They’ve been out for awhile though, I think.

    I keep a shelf of Christian-speculative books at goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7363329-lauren?shelf=christian-speculative

    Feel free to check it out for more ideas!

    Wayne Thomas Batson has a novel up, The Misadventures of Strylun and Xerk.

    The erotica book…was it Raven’s Hand? I downloaded the sample because I had seen James Somers’ books on Kindle before, but the opening was definitely not what I expected. No sex, but two whippings and a lot of focus on bare skin. The weird thing was that the second chapter seemed like normal fantasy.

    I’m downloading a bunch of free samples to check things out. It is hard. The bad thing about a genre driven mostly by indies and small presses is that there’s no real central marketing or destination where you can find new releases easily.


  7. Wonderful titles! Thank you all very much. David, the erotic one actually had that as a subtitle, so I don’t think it was James’s book. I honestly don’t remember the title. I thought at the time that somehow Amazon had a glitch in their sorting system and a couple books that didn’t belong in the category slipped through.

    But you all have given me more books to explore than all that searching I did.

    Lauren, I don’t hang out at Goodreads much. I did try to access your bookshelf but I guess we have to be friends. I tried to add you, but I’m not sure it went through (amid my needing to log in since it had been so long since my last visit).

    At any rate, please keep the suggestions coming, either here or in the comments section of any of my posts. I really appreciate this a lot.

    Just came across a series I think may fit – the Mindwar Game trilogy by Andrew Klavan? It’s virtual reality based – a gamer recruited to fight real-life bad guys in a virtual reality world – “what happens to you in this virtual world affects your body in real life.”

What do you think?
