My Young Adult Pick

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson | Goodreads

Coming from Random House – January 8th, 2015

Last year I read and loved STEELHEART by Brandon Sanderson. But then I doubt there is anything this man could write that I wouldn’t love. You can checkout my review for Steelheart to see what I thought.

Firefight

They told David it was impossible—that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart—invincible, immortal, unconquerable—is dead. And he died by David’s hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there’s no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David’s willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David’s heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he’s willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

FLIGHT OF THE GOLDEN HARPY by A.M. Dellamonica | Goodreads

Coming from Tor books – June 17th, 2014

Flight of the Golden Harpy

 

Kari, a young woman, returns to her jungle planet of Dora after ten years in Earth’s schools and is determined to unravel the mysteries surrounding the harpies, a feral species half-bird, half-mortal. The residences of Dora believe the harpies are dangerous game animals and hunt them for their trophy wings, but Kari thinks they are intelligent and not just wild animals. A rare golden harpy, a teenage blond male with yellow wings rescued Kari as a child from the jaws of a water monster. Upon returning home, she learns the harpies are facing extinction with the over-hunting and she sets out to save them, all the time wondering if the golden male is still alive.

Flight of the Golden Harpy is a fantasy, but also a mystery, thriller, and a love story that leaves a reader questioning our humanity.

What amazing books are you impatient for!?

    Firefight was mine last week too. They pushed back the date because I noticed in the back of my copy of Steelheart the other day with the “Firefight in Fall 2014” page in the back, but I suppose I can’t be too greedy, we did get Words of Radiance this year!

    I can’t wait for Firefight either! Although I thought the publication date was Fall of 2014, so it hurt my poor soul a bit to find that I have to wait a few extra months O_O I’m still not sure I love the cover redesigns, but if all else fails I guess I can take the dust jacket off, because there is no way I’m missing out on more of David’s adventures!
